July Favorites: Makeup and Hair

Can you believe how fast this year is going? I swear, the older I get, the quicker the years go. July was a good month. A lot of summer parties and get together's and we went on our family vacation last week down to Virginia Beach which was amazing! I had several products in July that became my new favorites and I wanted to share those with you. Some products I have used before and others are new to me.

My first favorite of the month are these Pond's Exfoliating Renewal Wipes. I have tried these before and stopped using them for awhile for some unknown reason. I like to use these in the mornings if I don't have time to wash my face. These work good enough for me! It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. 

I bought this Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray over a year ago and I finally tried it out this month (talk about procrastination!) I really like this spray. It gives your hair a nice beachy wave. The only thing I don't like about this is that my second day hair is pretty greasy from using this product. But it does what it's supposed to do so I can't complain. 

I used the It's a 10 leave in product a couple years ago and loved it! It is pricey so I never bought another one because I hate spending that kind of money on a small hair product. I decided to go ahead and buy it again back in April because I found a good deal on it. I love this stuff! It leaves my hair feeling soft and healthy. And even though it is expensive, this bottle will last me for months. I've been using it for 3 months now and there is still over half of the product left.

The back of the bottle tells you the 10 things that this product instantly helps with.

I got this perfume for my birthday from my husband. It smells so good! It is Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue. It smells very fresh and clean and it stays on my skin for hours. I'm always on the look out for a perfume that I can smell throughout the day, a lot of perfumes don't "stick" to my skin for long but this one does.

This has been a favorite of mine for months but I love it even more during the summer months. It is Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream. This is perfect for summer time when you don't wan to wear a ton of foundation on your face that's going to melt off and make you look greasy. This gives a slight tent to your skin and helps smooth out your complexion. I have very red blotchy skin and this helps to cover those spots up. 

I like to watch beauty videos on you tube, that's where I usually get inspired to buy new products. This NYC bronzer has been recommended by so many of the lovely ladies on You Tube, so I decided to give it a try. I love it! The color is perfect for contouring my face and leaving a great summer glow to my skin. Plus this product is very affordable and you can get it at Walmart or Target. 

I received this eyebrow pencil in my Ipsy bag last month and decided to give it a try. I had never used an eyebrow pencil before and now that I've tried one I see what all the fuss is about. It makes your eyebrows look darker and more put together. I'm so glad I tried this product out.

There you have it! My favorites for July. I love trying out new products every month and finding what works best for me. What products were your favorite during July?
