July 2022 Favorites


Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule

This is 100% centella asiatica extract. It's light serum texture that has a bit of that slip to it and it absorbs fast into the skin, leaving it soothed and hydrated. I love centella asiatica anything, because my skin just seems to react so well to it. I have already repurchased bigger size, because I feel like this is one of those serums that I can use through the year, layer it with other products and it just keeps my skin in great condition.

Cien Sun Sun Spray SPF30

I have raved about this sunscreen in the precious year as well. It's from Lidl, their house brand, and it has no fragrance. It's the perfect formula for sensitive skin. This never irritates my skin, it does a good job of protecting it and I love that there are no artificial scents to it. It's milky texture in a spray form, easy to use. I use it while I work outside or for when I go to the pool or on vacation. SPF30 manages to keep me sunburn free, if I apply it diligently. 

A'Pieu Pure Block Aqua Sun Gel SP50+ 

I have loved the orange version of A'Pieu sunscreen in the past and I thought I might as well try some others from them. This is milky cream that has lightweight texture, but feels hydrating on the skin and it leaves just a bit of sheen. There is some hyaluronic acid in it, but it's also got alcohol which you can smell a bit and it makes it feel very refreshing when you apply it. There is some added fragrance that is quite subtle. It works for my skin, but I feel I would love it in colder months even more. 

Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Dark Spots & Anti-Pollution Super UV Protection Fluid SPF50

This is my favorite drugstore SPF for the face that I have used all this summer for when I need a heavy duty sunscreen. I have also wore it on my holiday by the sea and I didn't tan my face at all, it seems. It's got very liquid milky consistency that can be hard to figure out how much you should apply, but it's so lightweight on the skin and wears great under makeup. It has no scent which I love as well.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara

I love this mascara for when I have fresh lash filler on my lashes. It's one of those wetter formulas with small silico brush wand that really separates the lashes and gives them definition. Not all mascaras tend to wear that well right after lash lift, but this one seems to work with mine fine. It gives me just a bit of volume and some definition that makes my lashes that much more noticeable. I like Maybelline lashes in general, but I have noticed this one sometimes transfers on my upper lid now that it's very hot outside, which I was a bit disappointed. 

Joico K-Pak Liquid Reconstructor

I have fine hair with oily roots and dry ends, so I tend to get a lot of breakage when I color my hair regularly. This is the best leave in treatment for the hair that I have used for years. I always rave about K-Pak range from Joico. It's got that milky nourishing texture that coats your lashes, makes them feel nourished, shiny and hydrated. It always leaves your hair looking so much healthier and soft. I always take it with me on holiday, because it saved my hair from the damage of salty water and hair ties. I have noticed they changed the scent of this and I am disappointed. Now it smells more fruity to me, where before it had that expensive hair salon scent that I preferred. 

Yves Rocher Malaysian Coconut Eau de Toilette and Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion Fragrance Mist

I am embarrassed to say how long I have had this in my collection. But then again you can probably guess it, because I still have the old design bottle from Coconut Passion. This is my go to summer scent that I go back to every year. It's combination of both. Yves Rocher Coconut has that milky powdery coconut scent that I mix with Coconut Passion which is more vanilla sweet and together I get this coconutty vanilla sweet scent that seems to last forever on me. Coconut Passion is so long lasting, despite it being just a mist. It always reminds me of summer and beach day when I smell it.
