July 2018 Roundup

Usually I like doing both video and blog posts on my monthly roundup, but I’ve been rushing to get a bit of content up (eg. Nighttime (PM) Skincare Routine video is published, not post) so for this post I’m sacrificing words that I am pretty much saying in my video. Enjoy!

June 2018 Roundup

FAVOURITES

Mentholatum Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun Perfect Gel – My skin may not be perfect, but it’s looking and feeling a lot better since I’ve incorporated this as the humectant-type moisturizer to my routine. My skin feels softer and smoother and more plump in general. It must be working at keeping all that hydration in!

Levi’s 501 Shorts – I can’t stop wearing these. They fit me so well and make my butt look really good.


EMPTIES

Banish Acne Scars Activated Charcoal Clay Masque – I’m really happy that this managed to last around 4 months with consistent use, especially since it’s in a small jar. I won’t be repurchasing this because I don’t like masks in powdered form in general, and I prefer creamier textures when it comes to clay masks. REVIEW: Banish Acne Scars Banish Starter Kit

Boo Bamboo Natural Sunscreen Mini Spray SPF 30 * – I take back what I said in my Green Beauty Products I Don’t Like vid. My boyfriend wanted to use it up instead of giving it away, and I’ve come to like it. It’s spreads nicely, doesn’t feel thick on the body, no whitecast when you rub it in and wait, and is a dry finish without drying your skin. I still stand by what I said before though, don’t use this if you plan on going in any water. It got really patchy on my body and it was not a pleasant site!

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner (Scented) – I’ve already done a dedicated review on this bad boy, so no need to go into detail. I am currently using the unscented one, and for the summer months I am finding it quite enjoyable and it seems to be performing just as well long-term as the original. REVIEW & COMPARE: Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner – Scented and Unscented!

The Face Shop Orchid Hand Cream * – I love the scent of orchid, so this hand cream was pure bliss when I used it; I preferred applying it at nighttime to relax me. The the finish is light so it won’t leave your hands overly greasy. At the same time, I don’t find it overly moisturizing, but it does enough. This is the second tube I’ve used up and I’m definitely considering having it on my nightstand again.

Weleda Everon Lip Balm – Best. Lip balm. EVER! It’s one of the more pricier lip balms I’ve purchased, but it lasts a long time both in my purse and on my lips, and it leaves a comfortable moisturized finish.


Not a lot of favourites this month, but I’ve also been testing out new products like crazy. You may see them featured in my next roundup since I didn’t use them enough to give a mention in this month’s. Either way, I’m happy I emptied a handful of products!

May 2018 Roundup: Favourites, Empties, Accomplishments!

I’m exciting to share a personal accomplishment this month alongside my product faves and empties. It may seem silly, but I’m sure proud of myself! Also, a few of the products I’m going to mention are actually my purchases from the Sephora Spring VIB Haul. Usually I return more than half the stuff cause they end up sucking, but I’ve actually been consistently using all of them since I got it in the mail!
