Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

July and August 2016 Favorites

on August 31, 2016

Hello again!
I intentionally did not post a favorites for July because honestly, it would have been a repeat of the April-June post. I’ve been using the same things over and over just trying to get through the summer. Same cream blush. Same eye crayons. Same hair products. I’m so ready for summer to be over!

Everything changed with the arrival of my first Sephora Play! box and a haircut. Bear with me here. I had been using the Ouai Wave Spray from the box and really liked the effect. After a few uses, I decided to go for the long bob and cut off a few inches with lots of layers. The thinking was that I could then manage my waves a little better and could be a little bit cooler. This was the best decision! Not only was I a lot more comfortable, but the cut has been so easy to manage and actually really fun. The Wave Spray is a great refresher for day 2 (or 3 or 4) hair. After brushing dry, I get my hair a little bit damp and generously spray my hair and scrunch it back into shape. The result is great texture with out leaving my hair crunchy or heavy. Did I mention it smells ah-mazing?? I don’t typically get on the hyped product train, but I am definitely on board with this one.

The other go-to product the last couple months has been the Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++. A small amount goes a long way and applies so evenly and smooth under any foundation. It really helps keep oil at bay – even during the most humid day. My skin doesn’t look super matte, but it does look a lot less shiny.

There you have it – 2 months and that’s it. Fall really needs to hurry up!

What were some of your favorites this month?
