Hello, friends! Oh my goodness, summer is really winding down. This summer is being cut a little short for me, as I go back to school next Tuesday for orientation team! I’m still in the process of packing for school, but I’m more than half way. The goal for this school year to to minimize the junk and keep everything neat!
This past month has been pretty wild, because it has been completely filled with work. Though making the trek to uptown every day is a little overwhelming, I’ve appreciated having a routine. In this post, I’m going to be talking about my favorite beauty products that have become a part of my routine and that have really gotten me through crazy July!
I have been wanting to try this cleanser for so long and now that I’ve been using it for a few weeks, I love it. First off, the bottle is huge. It’s almost the size of a shampoo bottle, so you get a lot of bang for your buck. The actual product is gentle, yet really cleanses your skin. I use it morning and night and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed, but really soft.
Soap and Glory “Scrub of Your Life” Body Scrub
You can’t help but love the cheeky product names that Soap and Glory comes up with. I recently discovered body scrubs this summer, and they have changed my shower game. I like this product, because it’s easy to use, turns into a foam when mixed with water, and washes off really easily. I use this a couple times a week and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth. It’s especially great to use before shaving your legs, because it makes legs feel softer for a longer period of time. The scent is also really fresh, so it’s a win-win all around.
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
This has been my go-to mascara for this entire month! The brush is so soft and really coats my lashes with product. My lashes are left ultra volumized and lengthened–it honestly looks like I am wearing false lashes. I have tried to going back to some of my other mascaras, but I find that they don’t make my lashes look the way this one does. If you are interested in more information about this mascara, I actually did a review a little while ago! I will leave the link here.
Maybelline Better Skin Foundation/Concealer
I really like this foundation/concealer combo, because it evens out my skin tone while mattifying my face. I apply the foundation with a sponge, then apply the slightly lighter concealer under my eyes. It leaves a soft, natural finish while covering up my imperfections. This foundation wears beautifully throughout the day, though I do need to blot after about 5 hours. These two products are super affordable and one of the best face products in the drugstore.
Benefit Porefessional Primer
I love this primer, because it feels really light on the skin, yet helps my foundation go on smoother and last longer. It’s super soft and blends out seamlessly. I also like to use this on days where I don’t wear makeup, because it helps control my shine throughout the day. This has definitely been a staple product for me during this crazy month.
