Hello lovelies, today I’ll be doing my monthly product review for the month of August!
This is one of my favorite purchases for this month. I’ve been looking for a quirky t-shirt and I thought this was perfect. I know it’s just a simple tee, but I like the simplicity of it as well as the subtle sarcasm.
In terms of skincare, this is something I’ve been loving all summer. I wrote about this recently and I still feel the same way about it now.
It’s an aloe vera gel that smells amazing and I love using it every morning and night. It leaves my skin feeling super moisturized and hydrated without the greasiness.
Some people have complained about it being unhygienic since it’s in a container, but I just use a small spoon to scoop it out. I also use this as a body “lotion,” since it feels really refreshing during heat waves. Plus, it’s super affordable and it lasts a long time since you get a generous amount in the tub.
This has been my favorite body spray of the month. It’s called Sweet & Flirty from Victoria’s Secret. It has a sweet scent without being overwhelming and it has sugar berry and pink grapefruit notes. I’ve honestly probably worn this spray every day this month, haha.
This is the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Clay Crush in the matte formula. I have mixed feelings about this lipstick.
On the one hand, I like the formula and the lipstick itself is good. But I just don’t know if it matches my skin tone or not. I have a light to medium skin tone with a warm undertone, so it just might not complement those tones. When I have worn it, I’m not sure if it looks right, so I’ve also been trying to mix it with lipliners to change up the color.
This tumbler has honestly been life-changing. I’m not sure what it is, but this has helped me drink so much more water!
My theory is that it’s because of the straw. Much like how we can easily drink lots of soda at fast food places with a fountain cup and straw, I always find myself sipping on this tumblr throughout the day.
I don’t know if that made much sense or if it’s relatable, but I find myself drinking so much more water when I use this instead of water bottles. I would highly recommend getting a tumbler and seeing if it increases your water intake. I also like filling it up with iced tea or a smoothie. It has double-layered insulation, so you don’t have to worry about condensation or your drink getting warm as quickly!
This is also another product I’ve been loving: the Pixi Glow Tonic!
I was curious about it since it’s a popular product and I’ve been hearing good things about glycolic acid. I wanted to see what effects it would have on my skin and if it would even out my skin tone and lighten my scars.
When I was using it, I noticed that my skin looked cleaner and brighter and my acne scars seemed to fade just a little faster. It also didn’t dry out my skin and I enjoyed the light scent. I didn’t have any break outs from using this product and I only used this at night since I believe glycolic acid makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
So that’s my August product review! I hope you enjoyed it and it was helpful; let me know what products you’ve been liking or disliking this month in the comments! Thanks for reading and I’ll see you lovelies soon!
