Monthly Misses: July 2021

July started with a bang, but might have ended with a whimper for some of us beauty lovers.  This thread is to give us a chance to mention the items that weren't all fireworks.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

I purchased those products last year from Briogeo direct @Ispend2much6. I was not wowed then but I figured that I would give it another try. Maybe I need to add some curl enhancement spray before I use these products again.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@Loretta55  I have problems with super heavy products on my hair it just weighs it down. 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

I am still going to try to make it work @ather . I may need to try another product along with those two.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

No "real" misses from this month; mostly because I haven't been using anything! Just a miss with scheduling a midmonth move the same month as a major work grant was due. I don't think I've used moisturizer in weeks since I can't find the box it's in 😂. But my new (first?) vanity along with some other furniture finally arrived, so this long weekend will be nice for unpacking and organizing. 🤞

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@haleyvvvv   Vanities seem to give such a sense of glamour and pampering. I had one when I was a teen; I could use one now (but I'd probably just clutter it up with too many lipsticks.)

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

I put off getting one, because I wasn't too sure the utility, @Ispend2much6; but when we moved, while getting a larger space, the bathroom is a definite downgrade and I needed somewhere to keep my "in use" rotation of makeup and skincare. We'll see how cluttered it gets, I'm hoping I can keep it similar levels to my old bathroom (mild clutter). 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@haleyvvvv  Good luck moving!!! 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Thank you, @ather!! We're almost done unpacking!!

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@haleyvvvv  Yay!

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@haleyvvvv Oooh, moving is a pain!  Hope that you're able to get settled in soon 🙂

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Thank you, @CookieGirl1!!

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

My July miss was technically from the end of June.  I bought a fragrance mist from BBW called "Fresh Cut Lilacs."  I was so happy that they finally made a scent like this b/c I really enjoy single note fragrances.  Also, so many of their hand washes and room spray scents are appealing to me in fragrance form, but never seem to transition their way into body mists.  Unfortunately, the mist smelled like air freshener from Glade.  It was doubly disappointing b/c I had a lilac body mist from BBW in the 90s that was wonderful - so authentic.  I've been waiting for it to come back for years and years and years.  I think it was literally just called "lilac." 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Lilacs are so beautiful @GreenEyedGirl107, I can see why you had high hopes for that spray.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@greeneyedgirl107  Darn I hate when they reinvent something that doesn’t need to be changed. 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@ather  I never, ever understand why companies do things like that!

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Both of my misses this month were skincare. Peter Thomas Roth Peptide 21™ Wrinkle Resist Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL did not do anything for my skin and caused minor irritation. Paula's Choice Water-Infusing Electrolyte Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mL is ok at moisturizing but has a scent that smells bad.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@faeriegirl  That’s to bad. Scents can definitely ruin products for me too

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

I also found that PTR serum didn't really do anything, @faeriegirl!! Im sorry it caused some irritation!!

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Oh no!! Was really hoping you would have better luck with the PTR! @faeriegirl 

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

Unfortunately KVD Beauty Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Hydrating Foundation Balm was a fail for me @greeneyedgirl107 . When I applied it the first time using a Beautyblender it looked cakey. I wore it yesterday applying it using my fingers it looked better but I have other foundations that I prefer.

Re: Monthly Misses: July 2021

@Loretta55  Darn.
