It’s time again for the monthly favs for June!! I can’t believe it’s July already, so sorry about the delay.
We’re going head to toe this go round, so let’s get into it!
Hair: Hairveda Red Tea Strong Holding Gel: Talk about frizz control?! This gel, loaded with fab ingredients like aloe vera, argan oil, and Rooibos tea extract tamed my curls and left them shiny and frizz free for 3-4 days. Other nourishing oils in the product helped me maintain moisture in my curls throughout the week so I didn’t have to really refresh much. Here’s a pic of my hair using it:
Despite the “Strong Hold” in the name , it’s really a flexible hold that keeps frizz at bay and allows your curls to remain soft and bouncy.
Face: Rite Aid Renewal Duo Fiber blending brush (synthetic): I actually bought this brush for my mom not realizing she had a brush like this already and I’m so GLAD I did not return it. This is the softest brush I’ve ever felt from a drugstore brand. It blends all my liquid foundations so effortlessly that it’s a brush that been washed so many times this month because I refuse to rotate to another. Because the brush head is on the smaller side, I’ve also used it to apply blush and setting powders with no issues.
Body: TWO items I’ve been hooked on because of the smell that are also uber moisturizing:
- Beauty Assortment for the Sun Kissed (B.A.S.K) Condensed Custard Ultra Rich Body Cream (Lemon Beignet scent)
Citrus smells always get me hook, line and sinker! Both of these are loaded with oils and butters that left my skin feeling soft, hydrated and supple without the greasy feel. For ladies on the go, the Pacifica butter comes in packaging that’s perfect for having in your purse to attack those stubborn areas, or simply to replenish moisture after handwashing. I definitely will be repurchasing these!
Nails: Tips and Toes edition!
- Surreal Appeal by China Glaze
- Amanda, by Zoya Nail Polish
I have been married to these two for my tips and toes, because while I love to sport super colorful shades for the summer, my work environment limits how “expressive” my nails can be. Needless to say, I thought my toes would be having all the fun with the splashy coral of Surreal Appeal, but Amanda made a believer out of me as a person who typically doesn’t gravitate towards nude shades. Amanda is the updated version with a peachy edge. Against my skin it’s absolutely lovely and coordinated well fashion-wise (where I would usually have to change my polish). Since my recent move to LA, I have been going to a ton of different events and haven’t had to worry about my manicure one bit. Zoya’s formula is superb. I never chip with it and it lasts a week or more.
So, what are your favs for June? Tell us! We wanna know (so we can go buy it already)!
