August 2021 Favorites

I’m back with another month of favorites! And let me tell this month I found some gems! I am genuinely so excited about all of these products I couldn’t wait to write this blog post!

Here are my most used/favorite products from August!

Makeup Eraser Set | $25

I don’t know what took me so long to try these, but I saw a pack of them on sale at Costco and finally decided to pull the trigger. They always just seemed so expensive whenever I saw them, I mean $20 for a little wash cloth no thanks. But let me tell you I’m fully converted. I would go pay $20 for one of these. But if you shop at Costco I would highly recommend going and looking for this pack! It came with 7 minis, 1 full size cloth, and a washer bag for $15. I was so excited I got them for that price!

Anyway, these have literally been life changing. I used to dread taking my makeup off at night because I feel like I could never get it all off. But I cannot believe the amount of makeup these little things get off. I don’t understand how this piece of fabric can take off all of my makeup with just water. I swear these are magic!

They’re also so easy to clean! You just put them in the washer bag and wash and dry with your towels and they are perfectly clean!

Hair Waver | $29

This waver was one of those super random Amazon purchases that I bought on a whim. I feel like I have bought every hair tool that claims to give you beach waves. Since my hair is so long none of them ever work, they make my hair look crazy. But this has been one of the best hair tool I’ve found!

I’ll start off by saying it’s huuuuge, but that’s a good thing because that’s what gives you the messy beach waves. I have wavy hair naturally, but the underneath of my hair doesn’t get as wavy as the top so I love using this to make my hair all look the same!

If you’re looking to get natural beachy waves I would highly recommend testing this out!

InstaNatural Rose Hip Oil | $25

This product isn’t new to my blog, I feel like I talk about this product so much. I’ve been out of it for a few months and just got a new bottle (I’m pretty sure I’m on my 5th bottle) so I had to add it to my favorites list. I use this morning and night after I apply my serums.

I have tried so many different rose hip oils and this is by far the best one. I personally feel like it is the best quality and it is an amazing price! The huge bottle (4 oz) of this lasts me months, and like I said I use it twice a day! If you struggle with acne or scarring you should defitnely try adding this into your skincare routine. It has helped with my acne scars tremendously. It is naturally rich in fatty acids (Omega 6, 3, & 9) and Vitamin A.

Some other benefits of Rosehip oil

– Hydrates dry skin

– Reduces dark spots, scars, and wrinkles

– Reduces appearance of stretch marks

If you are looking for some new skincare to try I would highly recommend testing out some of their products. I use a lot of their products and they are so inexpensive compared to other brands! Here’s a dedicated blog post I wrote about their products a couple years ago!

Gua Sha | $15

I got suckered into buying this after seeing a million TikTok videos of peoples results from their gua sha. I really wasn’t expecting much when I used it. But I was SHOCKED to say the least by the results. I should backtrack and say I always have sinus issues, I’ve even been prescribed a daily sinus medication to help me prevent sinus infections because I always get them. So I feel like most of the reason I had such amazing results from the gua sha is because I had a build up (sorry tmi) from my sinuses in my chin/neck area.

So since I’m always having pain in my face from my sinuses and from grinding my teeth I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. So one night before I went to bed I tried it, I just followed the directions on the little paper that it came with and I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning I took an “after” picture and literally could not believe my eyes. My jaw looked completely different, I’ll insert the before and after pictures.

 

I was so beyond excited I think I showed every single person I saw that day lol. Sorry this is going to be tmi again but that whole day I could feel all of the sinus drainage going down my throat, so it definitely works at draining your sinuses. I know that’s so gross but I had to share in case anyone is in the same boat as me, TRY IT!

So ever since then I’ve been addicted, I literally use it morning and night. I use it right after I apply my rosehip oil. I unfortualy dropped mine on the bathroom floor and broke it, but my new one just got in and I am so excited! Since I haven’t used it in about a week I am starting to notice I’m almost getting a double chin again from the build up, I literally can’t believe how well this works!!

One more side note I’ve also been using this on my neck/chest to smooth out my sleep lines and it works wonders! As you can tell I could talk about this product all day!

Savor Beauty Pomegranate Peptide Eye Serum | $58

This eye serum launched this summer and it is probably my favorite eye product I have tried to date. Savor Beauty is a clean and organic skincare line. This is the first product I have tried from them but from this I can tell they have really high quality skincare. My favorite thing about their line is their products are numbered in the order that you are supposed to use them, I just love that little detail!

The eye serum is a really thin consistenty and one tiny drop is enough to cover both of your eyes.

Here are the key ingredients

Pomegranate Extract– preserves skin firmness, prevents free radical damage

Pea Peptides – builds collagen which keeps the skin plump.

Gotu Kola – stimulates new cell growth

Cucumber Extract – Soothes and relieves puffy eyes

I sometimes struggle with eye creams burning my eyes, but I haven’t had any issues with this. It feels very gentle on my skin. I have noticed this has helped decrease my dark circles dramatically. I couldn’t figure out how to get rid of them but this has helped so much. I’ve also noticed my concealer goes on a lot better. This serum really keeps the skin around my eyes really moisturized! If you’re looking for a new eye cream I would highly recommend trying this one.

Those are my most used products from the month. Let me know what your current favorites are in the comments!
