Summer 2019 Beauty Favorites

Hello loves! With all the chaos that comes along with graduating college, moving across the country, and starting a new job, I haven’t posted a beauty favorites post since the beginning of May (which is weird for me since I normally post them once a month). I have been loving some new products as of late, so I thought I would hop on here and tell y’all why I love them. As always, feel free to click the photos or the links to shop these products.


IGK Toning Drops

I have been using this since April or May, but I can’t believe I am just now talking about it here! These are drops that can be added to any shampoo, conditioner, or leave in treatment to help tone and brighten up blonde hair. Since I have naturally brunette hair, I need all the help I can get to keep my blonde looking bright. I definitely notice a difference when I use these drops. My favorite way to use these is to mix 2-3 drops into a bit of deep conditioner, and leave it in my wet hair for 5 minutes or so before rinsing. You NEED these if you highlight your hair.

Acne Patches

True story - I bought these because they were featured in a BuzzFeed article … and I’m so glad I did because they actually do work. These are little stickers that you stick on your zits, and they soak up the nasty part of your zit. After a few hours (I leave mine on overnight) your pimple will be a lot flatter than it was before. And if you’re gross like me and like seeing what came out of your skin, you can see what the patch soaked up when you remove it. The best part is, they’re under $10 too.

Acne Tone Correcting Gel

If you struggle with acne and/or acne scarring, you need to pick up this gel. It’s formulated with salicylic acid and works to prevent new breakouts and smooth out uneven texture caused by acne. I have truly seen a major difference in my skin’s overall texture when I use this product; my skin looks the smoothest it’s ever looked. I use this 1-2 times a day after I wash and tone my face, but before I apply moisturizer.

Colourpop Lipstick in Lay Over

This lipstick is creamy, pigmented, and only $7.50! It’s the perfect nude shade that is perfect for everyday wear. I also love how there are little stars embossed in the side of the actual lipstick - such a fun touch. If you’re in need of a new “your lip color but better shade” you have to add this to your collection.

I hope you found this post helpful. Let me know if you like this new photo format as well! See y’all in the next post.
