Monthly Favourites - August 2017

Another month has come to an end, which means it's time to look at my monthly favourites. Let's see what I reached for the most during the month of August!

We have something from every category - skin care, hair care, and body care!

Juice Beauty - Hydrating Mist
A toning, hydrating mist featuring a refreshing blend of rosehip, ylang ylang, resveratrol-rich grapeseed oil, and antioxidant-rich organic botanical juices for a fresh, radiant complexion.

When I purchased this, I was on the hunt for a rose water mist. This makes my skin feel hydrated, and I use it after washing my face as a toner, after applying makeup, or just when I feel like my skin needs a boost of hydration. It feels great!

Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by tarte's bestselling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skin tones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay's nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin's moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result: Blush that wears better, longer, and truer. 

This such a pretty blush! It's neutral but works for so many skin tones. It works with any type of eye or lip colour and lasts all day. It blends easily and doesn't just disappear on your face. This pan will last me forever, and it's only a travel size!

Lush - Mask of Magnaminty
This tingly, minty face and body mask was formulated to be intensely cleansing but never harsh or abrasive. Kaolin clay and peppermint oil rid your pores of debris, giving you a delightfully tingly clean sensation. We add loads of ground aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe and moisturize.

I received this in my secret santa swap back in December, which probably sounds disgusting because I'm still using it. It's a little thicker than when I first received it, but I haven't had a bad reaction from it, so I will keep using it for now. It gives just the right amount of exfoliation, and feels so cooling on the skin. Perfect for a relaxing night.

*The Green Beaver Company - Natural Deodorant in Lavender  
New and improved Green Beaver Co. deodorant contain a revolutionary organic sage oil isolate which is effective at killing existing odour, as well as preventing body odour. Contains soothing Labrador Tea which combats irritation caused by shaving. Plus this natural deodorant stick goes on clear and offers 24 protection from odours.

I received this in a summer blogger box, which contained natural and organic skincare items made in Canada. I had never tried a natural deodorant when I received the box, so I had to put this to the test. While I'm not the biggest lavender fan, this deodorant is great. It does go on clear, and immediately fights against sweat and scent. It doesn't feel sticky, and doesn't leave marks on your clothes. I'll definitely consider purchasing a different scent once this one runs out. Plus, it has no aluminum in the ingredients!

DevaCurl - Whip It Good - Wave Maker - Touchable Texture Whip
This light and airy whip, made with moringa seed and passion flower extracts, gives consistent waves and frizz control every time you use it. Hair is left smooth, healthy-looking, and delicately scented. 

I received this in the Sephora Favorites - Summer Hair Saviors kit and I've been loving it! Especially on those days I don't feel like using heat on my hair. This has a light, but creamy texture. I find it really does help enhance the waves/slight curl in my hair, without weighting my hair down. And it has a light scent of coconut, perfect!

Have you tried any of my favourite products for the month? Which have you tried?!
