July Beauty Faves

As July comes to a close I wanted to share with you some beauty products I've been loving this month. These are things I've been reaching for everyday and feel like you guys would also enjoy them!

I'm always on the lookout for a great moisturizer and I've finally found it! This water gel is hands down the best face moisturizer I've ever used. I love it because it soaks into your skin very fast so you don't have to sit there and wait for it to absorb, which is great because I use it under my makeup. I also love it because it doesn't leave my skin feeling oily which is a feeling I hate. This moisturizer is very comparable to the Clinique water gel moisturizer but at a better price point. One jar of this generally lasts me about a month.

I usually only wash my hair every 2 days because my hair doesn't seem to produce much oil. So you're probably wondering well why do you need dry shampoo if your hair doesn't get oily?? Dry shampoo is GREAT for texturing hair. My hair is pin straight and very shiny and silky which I don't like, so to give my hair some volume and texture I like to spray dry shampoo in it. I use the deep dark brown colored dry shampoo because normal dry shampoos spray out white and can look pretty crazy on darker hair. If you have blonde hair I would suggest using the normal dry shampoo.

Sometimes I'm so lazy it's ridiculous and for some reason I find applying body cream to be an obnoxious task, so low and behold bath& body works has solved my problem: shower cream. This product is genius, you take your shower, wash your hair shave your legs and what have you and then before you get out you applying the shower cream just like you would apply a body wash, then you rinse, exit the shower, and boom you don't need to stand there for 5 mins trying to rub in lotion. Needless to say if you're lazy like me and hate applying lotion I highly suggest you pick this up! 

As I mentioned before my hair has zero texture & zero volume. I love to use this beach spray on my hair when it's damp, right after I get out of the shower I spray this through my hair and then let my hair air dry as normal. This spray gives me hair some great effortless looking texture without the dry feel of typical sea salt sprays.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue :

I'm really picky about fragrances so when I found this I was SO happy. This fragrance is perfect for summer as it's light and airy. The best way I can describe the scent is a very fresh smell, not floral, not musty, just light and fresh, which is what I love. After spraying this fragrance on in the morning you will be able to smell it all day, so it doesn't wear off, which is great because you won't have to spray it 9 times a day.

I hope you've enjoyed this post! All subheadings are direct links to products I mentioned!
