I cannot believe it is July already, where has this year gone?! Though the year is flying by, I am enjoying the amazing weather. Summer is my favorite season; the outdoor activities, weather, and sunshine make it the best time of year.
June was a great month filled with pool parties, picnics, roof top hangouts, and lots of sun. It was also a great month for product discoveries and jazzing up my skin/makeup routine a bit. Here are my favorites for June:
Coola Mineral Face Sunscreen: Sunshine calls for a higher SPF and ever since the temperature started rising I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect facial sunscreen. I wanted something that did not have the typical sunscreen smell, had a matte finish, and worked great under make up; this is exactly that product. Not only does it fulfill all my qualifications, but it also has an SPF of 30.
Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Bright Serum: When it comes to serums I’m always looking for the next best thing, with this I might have found it. This is a skin tone correcting serum that can be used day and night under your moisturizer. It helps correct dark spots, revealing more radiant and even toned skin. I’ve been using this for about three weeks and it has definitely helped lightened my post acne marks; definitely impressed.
M.A.C Oil Control Lotion: A great summer face lotion for oily skin. It has a very liquid consistency and sets to a matte finish. Though it has a matte finish, it is very hydrating making it ideal for summer parched skin.
Benefit Gimme Brow: This has quickly become my favorite eyebrow product. It is a fuss-free way to fill in and give your eyebrows some definition. It’s a hybrid between a gel and a tint. It has fibers that give your brows a fuller appearance, no need to fill them in. The best part is that it only takes two seconds to apply!
Milani Anti-Feathering Lipliner: This is one product that took me by surprise. I’ve seen transparent lipliners that are supposed to be anti-feathering, but never actually tried any. I casually picked this one up at the drugstore and instantly fell in love after just one use. What I do is fill in my entire lip with this then apply my lipstick over and it helps my lipstick last twice as long. This was truly an amazing find.
Feel free to let me know what were some of your favorite June picks!
