Despite the fact that autumn in Texas brings no real change in temperature (at least not until November), I love the tangible shift in the atmosphere that comes with September. I’ve been playing around with some products, both new and old, and wanted to share my favorites with you! This also marks the start of a new series, my monthly favorites! These posts will be going up at the beginning of every month from now on, so I hope you enjoy them!
These two skincare products have been real lifesavers this past month, as my skin has gone a bit wonky due to the fluctuating weather. While my skin is usually normal to dry, it’s been oilier than normal so this activated charcoal face wash has been really great at keeping my skin in line. Still, it’s not overly drying for daily use. I previously mentioned this Simple daily moisturizer in my Mini Beauty Haul. I’ve been looking for an SPF day lotion for months now, and I’m so pleased with this one. It’s non-greasy and sinks in quickly, and I’ve found that it goes really well under makeup too.
This fragrance is a bit of an old favorite, since it was given to me as a gift a long time ago. I had stopped using it, but recently pulled it out again as a light end-of-summer scent. It’s very sweet and feminine, but a little citrus kick keeps it from being overly cloying or heavy.
Last but not least, I wanted to include some beauty favorites. (Which coincidentally all happen to be lip products.) I’ve been loving my clear Maybelline Baby Lips in Quench, since it’s really hydrating and has SPF 20. Since it doesn’t have any color to it, it goes really well under other lip products. My other two lip favorites this past month are the Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey and the Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Blooming. I’ve been wearing these two together as a natural, pinky lip pretty much every day, and love the combination.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of my favorite products this month, and please like this post if you’d like to see more monthly favorites in the future! There are some pretty exciting things coming up in the next month or so (including my third giveaway) so make sure that you’ve followed me so that you don’t miss out!
