I'm crying over the fact that June is pretty much gone. I always get sad at this point during the summer. School will be back in session before we know it and although I love teaching, nothing beats summer time!
Today I'm sharing my June favorites with y'all. I've made a big effort in upping my skin care game and I've done great this month! I have a whole bunch of empties to share with y'all later this week!
Here are my favorite products/things from this month, including a dupe for Lush's Ocean Salt!
My favorite book this month was The Husband's Secret, although Big Little Lies was equally as good. If I had to pick one, it would be this one. You can read my June Book Reviews here.
I saw this product on a quick Ulta trip and thought to myself "That would never work". But then I started reading the back of the bottle and figured I'd try it out. I am loving this moisturizer! You put it on as soon as you get out of the bath or shower. Even before you dry off. You put this product on and then dry off. It's suppose to be strong enough that you don't have to moisturizer your skin afterwards, but I still do. I don't feel like it is a stand alone moisturizer, but it provides a good base. Plus, it smells good! :) I only use it at night.
I have been loving the 'beautiful day' scent from Bath and Body Works this month. Their body butters are my favs! They are so great at moisturizing your skin without feeling greasy. The scent is great for summer... light and fresh! They are also on sale right now so stock up!
This Pixi nail color in Fluoro Flamingo is the perfect summer color! The online picture looks nothing like its true color, which is more how it's seen here. Let me warn you...it's bright! I love it on my toes!
I'm skeptical of all these gel top coats out there right now. Of course, that didn't stop me for buying them! I'm really impressed with the one by Essie. My nails went 3 days without chipping, which is great for me because my nail polish is always chipping after the first day! #teacherproblems
This topcoat also made them really shinny!
I'm usually a lipstick girl, but for those no makeup/light makeup days, I've been loving the NYX butter gloss in strawberry parfait. The formula of these glosses is really good. They aren't sticky at all. Love!
Philosophy's margarita scent is quite possibly my favorite scent ever. I've used their body wash in this scent before, but it doesn't stay with you after your bath or shower. It smells fabulous during the shower, but you can't smell it afterwards. This foot cream isn't like that. I've been using it on my feet before bedtime and sleeping in socks. I'm now searching to see if they have a lotion in this scent. It is perfect for summer!
Another random laundry product, but I just had to share the Gain Scent Boosters in Tropical Sunrise. Oh my goodness this is a good one! It fills my entire laundry room with a delicious smell and make your clothes smell great too! This is my new favorite of all the scent boosters.
FYI: I only like the bead-like ones, not the little bags of powder. I've had problems with those not breaking all the way and not washing out of the wash. That hasn't been an issue with the bead ones though.
Game Changer! I LOVE Lush's Ocean Salt, but it is expensive! $35! I found this one from C. Booth at Ulta that is just like Ocean Salt, but better! And at $9 a tub it's a whole lot cheaper! I cannot get over how great this product is! The grains are bigger in this one as compared to the Ocean Salt, providing a stronger scrub. I've noticed a huge difference in my skin after using this. Love, love, love!
It's been HOT this summer and I've been loving my Ashley Brooke Designs Ice Ice Baby tumbler! I really want this one too!
