Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!




Happy July, Beauty Insider Community friends, and special shout out to my fellow Cancers 🦀 (if you’re into zodiac signs 😊). This month, my beauty theme has been glowy and protected! I have been naturally gravitating more towards sunscreens since getting so many awesome SPF-packed product recommendations in The SPF/Sunscreen Thread: What are your faves this season? 😎☀️ thread and found myself with four new sunscreens by the second week of July. 😂



To avoid listing a bunch of sunscreens, here is my favorite one out of the bunch along with my other monthly faves!




I have found a new power duo in the Milk Hydro Grip Primer and Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Setting Spray. I paired the two together for the first time and my makeup was able to withstand hot and humid conditions all the way into the evening!



I have so many good things to say about these products, but to avoid getting too lengthy of a post feel free to ask me in the comments. 😉



What have been your July monthly favorites BIC? Were there any that sparked some real fireworks? 🎆 Hit ‘Reply’ down below and use the ‘#’ sign to tag your favorite products!


Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

Summer in the city July favs. 🔥☀️ Easy breezy stuff. 




La Mer The Hydrating Illuminator 1.4 oz/ 41 mL - on my list every month. Perfect. Lightweight glow. 

#Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 PA+++ 1.7 oz/ 50 mL - works with every tinted moisturizer or on it’s on. Love

Augustinus Bader The Cream with TFC8® Face Moisturizer - love all in one serum/ moisturizer that‘s not too much for summer yet enough. 

goop Mini GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator 0.5 oz/ 15 mL - I love the gentle exfoliant that leaves me with the smoothest, moisturized feel afterwards. Dr B feels more intense and shiny whereas this one feels so soothing and soft yet nourished. It feels like you barely need a moisturizer but I still use one. 

Dr. Brandt Skincare microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator 2 oz/ 60 g - I’ve used this for so long and I love that it feels so minty fresh as it works, and even on my skin that’s a little bit sensitive as I’ve gotten older.  My skin always has such a soft glow and makeup is a breeze to apply. Feels so clean. 

rms beauty ReDimension Hydra Powder Blush French Rosé - can’t stop raving about these blush/highlighters. So fresh and pretty for a pinker sunburnt blush look with a little shine. 

Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Sheer Lipstick 506 Louisa Red and 508 Diana- my favorite Gucci lip for easy everyday wear, perfect consistency, scent and tint. 

GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI All Time Prime Clean Hydrating Prep & Smooth Face Oil 0.95 fl oz. / 28 mL - the best oil I’ve ever used to date with no breakouts nor too heavy. My hands and neck love it too. The gratis gift that keeps on giving , thank you again so much!  I won’t ever be without this oil! 

The Outset Nourishing Squalane Daily Moisturizer 1.7 oz / 50 mL - I tried this in store last month and it’s a wonderful light moisturizer with substance but not too much so. It really feels like it’s working and looks dewy. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@Sunnysmom What a cute photo and variety of goodies! 🙂 I have yet to try that face primer oil from GXVE but I received it in the summer gratis and really need to give it a go. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

Thank you so much @QueenMarceline ! Yes give it a try. It’s pretty amazing and smells yummy I think! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@Sunnysmom I definitely must, fall/winter is just around the corner that's usually when my oils come in handy 🙂

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@QueenMarceline @Sunnysmom That GXVE oil is also one of my faves! Definitely give it a try 😍

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

What a terrific oil @Mcakes , they did such a nice job with it I think! I bet it’ll feel so moisturizing in the winter months. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

I feel like I keep coming back to this thread because I keep forgetting to add on items that I fell in love with this July. The following one is something that started off as a Project Pan item because I simply had it too long but I really heavily dug into it this July and compared it to other brands of shower/bath oils I have--and I really love this one. 




The Dr. Teal's Lavender Moisturizing Bath & Body Oil


I love this product because it's truly a bargain and it also has an amazing hydrating effect on my legs both pre and post shaving. I've been incorporating an oil into my leg shaving routine for a while but I genuinely prefer this one over the others I've used so far. I did end up finishing this product in July and I repurchased it at the end of July. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

This looks lovely @QueenMarceline ! I've been looking for a new shower oil, thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@Mcakes You're very welcome. Give it a go and tell me what you think 🙂

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

Dr. Teals bath products are really good and for a great price, @QueenMarceline

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@curlychiquita I know! I've loved their epsom salts for what seems like forever but I'm genuinely impressed by the quality of the other products I've recently been trying from them. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

July is the Europe Edit! I limited myself to a carry-on and backpack for my 25-day trip, so a streamlined makeup routine was necessary.


Face: Tower 28 Beauty SunnyDays Lightweight Foundation and Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Magic Hour 


Eyes: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil (Iced Mocha), Essence Bye-Bye Panda Eyes Mascara, Urban Decay 24/7 liner (Demolition), Essence Make Me Brow, NYX Lift & Snatch brow pen


Lips: MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil 508 Total Taupe , MERIT Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick 1990 , and Glossier Balm Dotcom



Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

Wowza you are a master packer @tastelikewater ! Such great products!

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

This is so cute @tastelikewater , and how fun even in the heat! Agree on some of these terrific favorites! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@tastelikewater Great photo! I am excited to tey the mascara. Good to know you like it as I have it in my stash!

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@tastelikewater Love seeing what people pack on trips, especially when space is limited. I feel like that always ends up showing me what the backbone of my routines are 🙂 

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@QueenMarceline Absolutely, it was so helpful to limit myself to a small cosmetic case. And it was even harder because the countries I visited were so different in climate. Scotland fluctuated between 55-70 degrees, and Paris soared to 106!

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

@tastelikewater wow, thats definitely quite the temperature range so glad these all stood up to it! You did an amazing job, I tend to overpack no matter how hard I try to avoid it haha 🤣

July Favorites💖B8B09B60-934F-4C59-A0C3-F15A8D56318A.jpeg

 Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo 

Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Conditioner  has made my hair feel so soft and shiny. They are so pricey but totally worth it!

Youth To The People Polypeptide-121 Future Cream with Peptides and Ceramides 2 oz / 60 mL  is so hydrating and soothing.

The Ordinary Matrixyl* 10% + HA 1 oz/ 30 mL 

is very hydrating and affordable.

I am addicted to LAWLESS Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss Cherry Vanilla and LAWLESS Forget The Filler Overnight Lip Plumping Mask . They are so good❤️🍒

Re: Monthly Favorites: July 2022 Edition!

Ooohhh so many of my favorite things as well @faeriegirl 😍
