July Favorites 2013

 July has come to an end, which i still can't believe and I just wanted to share some of the products that I have been loving this month. One of my favorite scents I've been loving is the Bath And Body Works Beautiful Day lotion and body mist. I also have another favorite scent which is from Victoria's Secret and it is the Love Spell body mist. Lately I've been really liking floral fragrances. For me face care is a must so my two  favorite skincare product at the moment are Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions and a Studio Beauty dry skin cream. Recently my feet have been getting very dry so I am really loving this Ahava foot cream and how it really moisturizes my feet. Last but not least my lip care favorite is simply just my Blistex medicated lip balm.Well those were all of my lovely favorites for this month and a picture of them are down below.

DIY Honey And Sugar Facial Scrub

Honey helps the skin hold moisture and will also leave your skin smooth and glowing. With the sugar it will make it a good exfoliator. Sugar is not too harsh and will not leave not hurt your skin. This scrub can be used on all skin types and will not clog your pores.

What you will need:
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar 
  • small bowl

Mix the ingredients then splash your face with warm water to open your pores. Apply the scrub evenly on your face avoiding the eye area . Leave this on for about 5 to 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water then with cold to close your pores. Pat dry and don't forget to apply a moisturizer. One of best times to apply a moisturizer is after exfoliation.

CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara Review

When I tried this for the first time it almost made me want to just forget about all of my other mascaras. I really liked that it doesn't flake throughout the day. I also like how it lengthens and defines each lash. It adds volume to my lashes and gives them that bold look. One thing I love in a mascara is when it is easy to remove. I like that all I have to do to remove this is use a cleansing wipe then wash my face to get the excess mascara off. I'm pretty sure no one want to be tugging on their eyelashes just to remove mascara. As of now I would say this is my favorite mascara.

Neutrogena Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser Review

The main reason I like this cleanser is because it got rid of the dark spots on my face. They were caused by acne scars, and I am so happy they are gone. Even though it took a while for me to start seeing results with this product I stuck to it and it worked. I'm so glad that I decided to keep using this product because I absolutely saw improvements in my skin as I kept using it. I also started to notice that my skin began to look brighter. Another good thing about this product is that it has little beads in it so that it can gently exfoliate to remove the dead skin. I recommend this product to anyone who is having trouble getting rid of dark spots and wants a even skin tone.
