August Favorites and Finished Products

I did not do one for the month of July. For that reason, I'm going to combine the finished products together.

August Favorites
MAC Snowglobe Eye Shadows Palette in Warm: I know most people did not like their holiday palettes, but I actually like the packaging. That might be an influence why I got this palette. :X I think it's simple and just plain fun! I like playing with the snow globe on top. Only exception it can get boring with one type of silver glitter. I think they should had put a mixture of different designs like silver stars. Anyways, it should not be about the packaging but what's in the inside. I know I'm one to speak. :X I've been reaching for this a lot this month because I found one eye look I really liked.

Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin' Watermelon: I reviewed this product and this is my favorite color from the bunch. It leaves a glossy look on my lips, no glitters or sparkles, hint of color, and moisturizes your lips.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat: I've tried other top coats and I keep coming back to this. It's that great! :)

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer: Who would have thought I would love a moisturizer for acne-prone skin! It's on the thicker side but I can see why. Since acne-prone skin uses so many products that dry out their skin, this will be great. Not only is it great for acne-prone skin, but it's good for dry skin as well.

b.liv Dullness Cessation Bright is Right Sheet Masks: They're drench with serum and I can see immediate results right afterwards. My skin looks amazing the day of the sheet masks, as well as, the morning after. I look glowy, refreshed, and just younger looking.

August Finished Products
Reviva Labs Stem Cell Booster Serum: I reviewed this product and am sad to see this go! The only thing I did not like about this product is the scent, but it did not bother me after some usage. You hardly even notice it. The reason I loved this product so much is that I hardly see serum works, but this worked wonder on my me. I saw better skin as time went on, but it could be a combination of products. My skin just looked good and even my friend I knew since elementary even said it.

Would repurchase: Yes!

Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme: I received this from a giveaway and glad I did. It's perfect for the summer weather. It's quick and easy to apply. You just put in your hand and apply it like a serum. Not only is it easy, but it smells great and it's hydrating!

Would repurchase: Yes.

Simple Sensitive Skin Experts Cleansing Facial Wipes: I got this through Target Beauty Bag. It's been awhile and for that reason, I don't remember how I felt *sigh*. That's why I have to blog about a product right away and go back to my references or else I will not remember. :/ I remember thinking this was good.

Would repurchase: Yes.

ESL Essence Mask Pack in Aloe: I received this from my sister-in-law with another mask pack, Coenzyme Q10. I like this better than the Coenzyme Q10. It has more serum that I can work with, but even with that it was still on the dry side. I saw results afterwards, but not the morning after. Therefore, it only worked for one night.

Would repurchase: No!

Ulta Nail Polish: I don't even remember the nail polish color. Sorry about that! I received this free long time ago from Ulta and used it almost every summer on my toes. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Ulta nail polishes or at least this one. I have not tried other colors. They're streaky and do not apply evenly. For that reason, I only did it on my toes so people could not see the details. I also thought the brush were too thin to do a quick apply. I did not completely finish the product, but it got gunky and overflowed out of the bottle. The brush also came apart. For that reason, I threw this away.

Would repurchase: No!

Aveda Hand and Body Wash in Rosemary Mint: If you do not know Aveda, they're plant based company. I'm not a huge fan when it comes to scents of plants. They just don't smell that great to me! Since I got this sample, I wanted to try it. I thought I would be okay with rose, but the mint was overwhelming. Other than the scent, it's actually a good body wash.

Would repurchase: No, because of the scent.

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Body Lotion: I reviewed this body lotion and my opinion is the same since I started using it. I love it! It's extremely moisturizing but I would not recommend this if you have extremely dry skin for the winter weather. The best part is the smell. It's heavenly! :)

Would repurchase: Yes!

Bath & Body Works Body Spray in Carried Away: I received this sample and loved it for the summer season. It's light and refreshing. It does not overwhelm my noise which is great!

Would repurchase: Yes.

Wow that was a lot of finished products! Then again it was for two months. ;)

I'm trying to make this blog more personal. The key word is trying. If I go to places and recommend them, I will try my best to post it.
Last weekend, I went hiking at Escondido Canyon Park in Malibu. This was the first waterfall. I must say it's wasn't much but I heard it's really nice after the rain. If you're into hiking and want to see waterfalls, you should definitely come here.
Then we went to Geoffrey's Malibu and I had Lobster Quiche. It was really good except for the brown sauce around it. I wasn't too keen on that. :X
