LOVED IN JULY

This month passed incredibly fast. As cliché as it sounds, it feels like just last week was June. Or all this heat finally fried the last of my brain cells. As the sun keeps persistently shining, I wanted to share today what I have been loving in the month of July.


Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion Honey & Milk

If you are lazy with body lotion application or hate waiting for it to sink in, you will love this one. Nivea released they in-shower body lotions some time ago, but as I didn’t particularly liked the smell of those, I never tried them. Here comes the regret. I wish I actually got one back then. Now, this particular one smells yummy. Fast to apply and no greasy feel on the skin afterwards. I wonder if they have a bigger bottle…

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

This one is a life saver (or more likely face saver). It does wonders in helping to quickly to get rid of the pimples. I mostly use it in the evenings before going to sleep. A little of it on the coming of already healing pimples and in the morning you can see it diminished and redness reduced. 

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

I have been wearing only this the whole month (that is if I have been wearing make up). My skin gets a little bit more oily during summer and this one deals with it perfectly. When I first got it, I wasn’t so impressed, but now, I pat myself on the back for a job well done. Not only does this help with oil control (so far it just gets glowy on my T-zone after few hours of wear), but stays put for whole day. Good stuff.  

Maybelline Color Elixirs in Breathtaking Apricot and Mandarin Rapture (more at link)

I am totally in love with these. Beautiful colours, amazing feel on the lips and beautiful packaging. I am trying not to cave and get more, more…more.

Golden Rose Care+Strong Nail Lacquer in 181 (more at – link)

If you are looking for long lasting nail polish, try this. It goes without or with minimal chipping for a week (no wearing at the tips too). And this particular colour is very summery and fun. 

L’oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara

I finally caved and gotten myself this mascara. After hearing so many people praise this one, I just had to (and it was on discount). I quite like it and have been using it for the part of the month before getting the Rimmel one. It was quite trial and error time using this. It took some time getting used to its bendy wand. As I mastered that one, I started to really like it. It gives nice volume, without glueing my lashes together, though I wish it gave a little more length. 

Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara with Argan Oil

I’m obsessed with this stuff. I had this one for over a week, but I’m already in love. It gives volume (not extremely, but you notice some), length and actually curls your lashes (as I misplaced my eyelash curler I thought to go without, so I was quite surprised when it gave such a nice curve to them) and actually holds it. Can’t remember any non waterproof mascara which actually hold curl in  my lashes more than an hour. Didn’t stick my lashes into three and no clumps happened which is also nice. This certainly earned title of my favourite mascara (dare I say the holy grail?). 


Have you tried any of these? What have you been loving in July?
