July Reviews: Our Top 8 Beauty Finds This Month

This month we thought we would bring you guys a little something different. We are going to be reviewing our favorite beauty finds from this month. I’ve been on the lookout for new pieces to go with my existing routine and I think I’ve found some great additions!

Dove Exfoliating Body Polish

This stuff works really well! I use it before I shave and it makes my skin so smooth! There are 3 different types, but I’m partial to the pomegranate scent. It has a whipped consistency with several moisturizers in it. The smell is light and refreshing which helps because I don’t like overwhelming scents.

 

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Face Wash

Before you balk at the price, lord knows I did, the one bottle I had before I tried this one lasted me over a year. I used it every day, and I’m convinced all of their products are amazing! I found this at the beginning of this month and I’ve used it every day since. Very little goes a long way with this stuff. If this lasts me a year like the last one I’ll save a ton of money at target haha.  My face doesn’t feel tight or dry after using this and I haven’t had a breakout since using it. It’s supposed to encourage the natural cell renewal cycle and while gently cleaning and resurfacing. Oprah uses this stuff and I can definitely see why. I don’t think I’ll ever buy another face wash ever again.

 

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel

This stuff is great. I use it right after I put on my leave in after washing my hair. Now it’s super watery and don’t expect to use just this for styling. Think of it as a protective barrier between your hair and the weather that keeps your hair from frizzing. I still have to do my normal routine but I’ve slept on my hair and had great second day curls without much assistance. Ouidad is a bit pricey but I bought the large bottle when it was on sale and I expect it to last me 6-7 months which actually works out to cheaper than getting gel every month from Target or Walmart.

 

Nugg Charcoal Detox Mask

This mask is awesome. It detoxes while reducing shine and helping control acne. It’s also very inexpensive. You can get it at target for $3.99. These would also be a great addition for a gift basket.

 

Rose Glow Mist by Pixi

This mist is sold at Target and you can use it before or after your makeup. Using it under your makeup helps smooth, moisturize, and calm the skin. Using it on top, sets your makeup and creates a dewy finish. It smells so good too. It’s infused with 7 types of Rose Flower extracts and antioxidants. This mist also provides protection from free radicals which is an awesome bonus.

 

Good Chemistry

This is a new line of fragrances at Target. My favorite is Queen Bee. This line includes both men and womens fragrances that are made using essential oils. All fragrances are Paraben-free, vegan, dye-free, phthalate-free, and aluminum-free.

 

Righteous Body Butter

Soap and Glory is slowly becoming one of my favorite beauty brands. This body butter is divine! I use it right after I get out of the shower and my skin is so soft all day. It’s filled with shea butter, rosehip oil, aloe vera, Vitamin E, Glycerin, and almond oil. 

 

Hocus Focus Illuminator

Soap and Glory…again…I told you it was becoming a favorite.  I will admit though that the play on words in the name is what got me to purchase this product in the first place. Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite halloween movies. This product immediately softens and illuminates, with LIGHTSCRAMBLE luminospheres. It can diffuse the appearance of large pores, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation. This will be a great addition to your daily routine!
