July 2017 Favorites
Bath and Body Works CocoShea Honey Body Lotion – Not only is this lotion super moisturizing and packed with cocoa butter, but it smells amazing! Seriously, just go smell it!
Be Your Own Kind Of Beauty – Nude Collections Palette – If you are a beauty box subscription junkie you have to sign up for Boxycharm. It is more pricey than other subscription boxes ($20 per month) but, you get 5 FULL size products. I’ve been a member for a few months now and have yet to be disappointed. The July box included a Be Your Own Kind of Beauty palette. The shadow is richly pigmented, long wearing, and build-able. The $20 subscription fee was totally worth that palette alone. (Spoiler Alert: The August box includes Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette)
Women’s Muscle Tank – Merona- These tank tops are so comfortable and CHEAP! I have one in almost every color. I suggest sizing down because they run a little large and do not shrink in the wash. Target is already switching over to it’s Fall clothing line, so I have not seen these in store. Fortunately, most colors and sizes are still available online!
iPhone 7 Plus case Marble, Akna Glamour Series Silicon cover- Pretty, durable, and cheap… just the way I love my phone cases. The variety of colors and designs are a plus too.
GLAMGLOW GLOWSETTER™ Makeup Setting Spray-In my monthly Sephora Play box I receive a sample of Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. It really does what it claims. My make up lasts all day and even through sweaty gym sessions. The only compliant I have is that it has a slight chemical smell. Glamglow Glowsetter came recommended because of it’s staying power and great smell. I purchased a small bottle to test it out. The smell is definitely great (a light vanilla scent) and not over powering. The mist is very light and hydrating. However, the staying power pales in comparison to Urban Decay’s product. I’d recommend using Glowsetter during the summer or if you are wearing light makeup.
PopSockets: Expanding Stand and Grip for Smartphones and Tablets-My first impression of these little things is that they were one step below a selfie stick. I didn’t really understand the point until I saw them at Target. Yes, you can use them to help steady your hand taking selfies, BUT they come in handy for actually holding your phone. The little knob slips easily in between your middle and ring finger leaving your thumb free to scroll and slide. The sticking power on these little things is amazing. I’ve successfully removed them from one case to another.
Traditionally, I’ve been posting 5 of my favorite things every Friday, but it has been so hard to keep up with! So, I’m switching it up and will be posting a review of my favorite products once a month. This way I will be able to focus on posting something at least once a week!
