August Favorites: Beauty.
I’m back with some beauty faves! Finally!
So for the first time in nearly ten years, I didn’t share a beauty favorites last month! I mean, let’s be real – I have barely been wearing makeup for months (in fact I’m at a point now where when I DO wear makeup, it feels like SO much on my skin!) and I’m still using all my favorite skincare products – the same ones. There have been a few new things I’ve tried and mentioned over the last few weeks on my summer fridays posts, but I figured I’d put together a dedicated post for August! These are always my favorite posts to do, but I often feel repetitive since I really love my skincare routine and use nearly all the same stuff.
Max is starting school soon and once we’re in more of a routine, I think my makeup game will go up a bit! But otherwise, I really haven’t bought much makeup at all… if any. Here are a few things I’ve been loving over the summer!
August Beauty Favorites
Herbivore Coconut Hydrating Body Oil. This may be my favorite product of the entire summer. Since June, I’ve used half the bottle. It’s replaced body lotion for me occasionally after a shower. It does not leave your skin greasy or oily at all. It smells INCREDIBLE. It’s like a sweet coconut – not a tropical coconut. It’s a very lovely scent! And bonus, it has a pump, which is always so much more convenient than a dropper with oil.
54 Thrones Beauty Butter. I am obsessed with this. I wanted it months ago and it was sold out, then it popped up on Nordstrom’s website as available! I have the vanilla scent, but it’s not a warm, sweet vanilla. It’s like a fresh, slightly floral (in a good way, because florals usually make me sneeze) vanilla scent. The product itself is SO moisturizing and you only need the smallest drop. I’ve been using this on my hands and also some dry skin spots before bed. I really want to try the facial oil too!
Elta MD Full Body Aero Sunscreen. I bought this after Lacy started using it and it is wonderful. You do have to rub it in after spraying, but it is SO light and not thick at all as it goes on. It’s really nice for body sunscreen! Plus, it’s the same brand as what I use on my face.
GIMME thick hair ties. These came up on an amazon search when I was looking for hair ties for Emilia. I knew they would be too big for her but may work for my hair. I LOVE THEM. They are so stretchy and soft but also hold my hair really well. And I love how thick they are.
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. Still my favorite scent of summer by far – so fresh, but coconutty, but beachy, but warm. I adore it. I even like to mix it with the coconut scent I mentioned back in June. I find that it layers well with everything!
What has your beauty routine looked like this summer?! Anything you’re looking forward to for fall?
