Re: The August Favorites Thread

The Fresh Kombucha Essence is easily becoming my favorite essence. It's light, has a nice fragrance to it and really moisturizes my skin. <333

Re: The August Favorites Thread

@Tamara76, so many lovely favorites!!! The Sulwhasoo looks so luxe, as does the Tatcha and the Fresh. Your skin will love you for loving it with such good products! ❤️ Those Gourmande Girls lippies are adorable; I'm going to have to check out their site. Actually, I just went onto the site and learned that those lippies smell like cake! That just sealed the deal. Gonna go figure out which colors I want. 😉 

Re: The August Favorites Thread

Hi @Tamara76 ,

 

I really want to try the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA 8 oz/ 226 g. I love body scrubs and need something for my skin in the winter! 

 

Best Wishes,

Hi @GodivaMoon ,

 

I love the Lila Palette. It is so pretty and there are so many great shades for the Fall time too! 

 

Best Wishes,

RE: The August Favorites Thread

I also use the unseen sunscreen. I like it!

Re: The August Favorites Thread

Re: The August Favorites Thread

Beautiful favorites @GodivaMoon! 💗💕 

The August Favorites Thread

I recently dug this forgotten treasure out of my stash and am obsessed with it! It smells SO GOOD and provides the perfect flush of dewy colour. I'm so sad it's no longer available for purchase because I want to buy 100 more. 😍

Re: The August Favorites Thread

It’s so great to find a forgotten favorite @CheekyKeek! 😃 There were some beautiful shades in this line; 💗 maybe Tarte will bring it back again. 🤞🏼

I love that blush. It's definitely one of my favorites for no makeup makeup days. It has lasted me for so long I didn't even know it was no longer carried! 😔

Re: The August Favorites Thread

I'm about 4 months into my foundation-free journey now, so these three products were pretty much my entire summer face.

 

The REN Clean Skincare Evercalm™ Global Protection Day Cream 1.7 oz/ 50 mL is a no-nonsense, dependable moisturizer that hydrates without feeling too heavy or greasy on the skin.  I like to mix 1 - 2 drops of the REN Clean Skincare Keep Young And Beautiful™ Instant Firming Beauty Shot into the REN Evercalm moisturizer to speed up the dry-down time and to give it a "bouncier", hydrating finish.  

 

I discovered the SUPERGOOP! - Glow Stick Sunscreen SPF 50 through gratis received at a BIC community event with @supergoop .  At first, I was a bit hesitant to try it, afraid that it might be stiff or waxy like a lip balm.  As it turns out, the Supergoop Glow Stick Sunscreen is solid oil that melts and spreads easily on the skin upon contact.  I would highly recommend this to those who like a glowy finish to the skin -- I can comfortably use this all over the face without looking sweaty or greasy.

Re: The August Favorites Thread

@MlleCC  Extremely jealous of your foundation-free journey! One day my skin will be in good enough condition...one day...

 

I've got to try more REN products! The Young and Beautiful serum sounds super interesting. Good to know you're liking the Supergoop stick! 

Re: The August Favorites Thread

@MlleCC, your foundation free journey is inspiring! 💕 That REN serum sounds amazing! I’m pretty sure I have a couple of samples somewhere...definitely going to have to look for them now. 😃

Re: The August Favorites Thread

It's been a brutally hot August here in Ohio, so I've been wearing minimal makeup and lighter skin care products to deal with my combo skin- the heat makes it really oily! 

 

I've been obsessed with the FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer Fenty Glowbecause who wants to wear lipstick in 100 degree heat? I've also been using the BITE BEAUTY - Agave Lip Mask - Lavender every night to keep my lips happy and hydrated.

For skin care, I've mostly switched my routine to clean beauty products, and my skin is so happy! My current faves include Herbivore Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil - For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin

Farmacy HONEYMOON GLOW AHA Resurfacing Night Serum with Hydrating Honey + Gentle Flower Acids

and Volition Beauty Strawberry-C Brightening Serum

Since it's been too hot for foundation, i've just been using HOURGLASS - Ambient® Lighting Powder - Luminous Light and BECCA Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector Light to Medium

Re: The August Favorites Thread

Hi @unfungirl,

 

When the heat stop!? It has been so hot over hear in California as well and I am over it lol! 

 

Great set of favorites! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean

 

Re: The August Favorites Thread

@JaneanBT  hopefully soon! we had a little taste of fall here, and now it's back in the 90's. i am fully over it too!! i know cali heat is no joke so hopefully we both get a break soon!

Re: The August Favorites Thread

My August Favorite is not a product but a service that is offered by Sephora. It is the Perk Hydra Facial that requires a $75.00 in store purchase. The service is basically the same service which is offered at my spa for $195.00. I will be scheduling this facial every 4 weeks. The SA who conducted my Perk Hydra Facial is also a licensed esthetician. I also received great skincare recommendations.

Re: The August Favorites Thread

Love the Perk hydrafacial @Loretta55! Happy to hear that you received one. Great idea to schedule one every 4 weeks! <333
