July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about my July favorites. I have an interesting mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box, I’ll of course link that post below if you haven’t read it. And my Play favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this. I’ve been using it for ages and it not only takes off every stay proof, waterproof, long lasting bit of makeup, but it does so with a gentle formula so there’s no scrubbing or irritation.

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. Again, this is something I’ve been using for a little while and it’s just so good. This particular shade is like a dusty mauve and it’s so pretty. These lip crayons are super pigmented and really long wearing. I have quite a few Bite Beauty products and honestly they’re all great. If you’ve never checked them out then I highly recommend doing so.

My last Play favorite is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a scent that I would describe as very summery. It’s floral, fruity and just a little bit sugary, which is perfect. This isn’t one of those perfumes that you have to worry about being completely faded by the end of the day, it wears well and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.

My second to last beauty favorite is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I received this first in my Walmart Beauty Box, link below, and in my Target Beauty Box later, link below. So I figured I would give it a try. I take pretty good care of my hair so I didn’t know if it would really do a lot, but I have to say that I’m impressed. You use this after you’ve shampooed and conditioned and you apply it from the middle of your hair to the ends. It’s purpose is to target any damage you may have and to help prevent split ends, what I’ve noticed is that the portion of my hair I applied it has been softer than normal and I quite like that.

And my last beauty favorite is Aloe Vera. Earlier this month I was doing something I’m going to talk about later in this post, outside in the heat of the day, for a long period of time, and I got the worst sunburn I’ve had in a really long time. It was so red and so painful and using aloe absolutely saved me. It ended up not peeling and actually turned into a nice little tan.

My next favorite is a book and it’s Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I talked about the show adaptation in my favorites last month and after watching and loving that I decided that I had to read the book. I absolutely loved it, it was so funny and now I fully understand why so many people have loved this book for so long. It’s just fantastic. I 1000% recommend reading it if you haven’t and watching the show because David Tennant and Michael Sheen are incredible and do an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life.

Moving on, my next favorite is my sunflowers and the planter box I built for them, aka the thing that caused my sunburn. Back in June a neighbor of mine told me she had some extra sunflower starts that she didn’t have a use for and I very happily took them off her hands. I knew that sunflowers like to root pretty deep and have space to grow so I decided to build my own planter box. It came out so good, I’m super happy with it and the sunflowers have been thriving since I put them in there. I have to give a shout out to my dad for helping me with this because my woodworking experience is limited.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the song Superstitious by Europe. I feel like Europe is a band that gets forgotten about/people don’t know has more songs than Final Countdown. But my discovering this song was totally random, it popped up in my recommended on YouTube and I’m glad I clicked because I really like it. I listen to a lot of music and this song has one of, in my opinion, the best guitar solos. It’s just so good. And I would definitely say to give this song a listen if you haven’t, it’s pretty great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your July favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

July Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my July Play Box from Sephora and thought that today would be a good day to go through it. The theme this month is Desert Island Essentials, basically it’s products that if you were on a desert island would serve you well. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through green with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘Ready. Set. Play! #SephoraPlay’ written in green.

JLSP1

The first product we have is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. This is something I use often and have been using for a while. It has a gentle formula, you don’t have to tug to remove any makeup and it really does take everything off. This is something I always recommend to people and will probably continue to do so.

JLSP2

Next we have the Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser with Bamboo Booster. This is a cleansing balm that is supposed to take off all of the water resistant, long lasting makeup and remove any traces of makeup/dirt/sunscreen. It also comes with a little packet of Bamboo Booster which is a bamboo extract and charcoal powder mix. You add that to your Slaai and it is supposed to exfoliate and help to remove dead skin cells. I’ve never actually used anything from Drunk Elephant so I’m excited to try this out.

JLSP3

JLSP4

Moving on we have the Caudalie Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Serum. This is supposed to get rid of blemishes and reduce the look of pores, it also doubles as an overnight spot treatment. You guys know how much I like Caudalie as a brand, so I’m excited to try this and I’ll let you know what I think.

JLSP6

The next product we have is the Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf and Hibiscus Firming Mask. This is an overnight mask that you put on before bed and is supposed to leave you with smoother and firmer skin. I don’t usually wear overnight masks, but since I’ve been wearing the overnight lip mask I’ve been looking into them, so this one comes at a great time.

JLSP5

The second to last product we have is the Bite Beauty Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Glace. I have this exact lip crayon and I love the color. It’s a dusty mauve and it goes so well with so many different looks. It’s super pigmented, and long wearing. Bite Beauty has so many great products and if you haven’t ever checked them out I definitely recommend it.

JLSP7

JLSP8

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a very complex scent, it’s fruity, floral and a little sugary. But it’s so well balanced and every time you smell it you can pick out something different. It’s like the perfect summer scent. I would recommend smelling it if you haven’t and you get the chance to.

JLSP9

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your July Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
