August Beauty: Powerhouse Products

This month I am all about finding those powerhouse beauty products that are definitely worth buying! I want to find beauty products that I can incorporate into my skincare routine and hair routine that make a noticeable difference.

GLOW RECIPE Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm

This cleansing balm is aimed at melting away your entire day, from dirt and oil to makeup and SPF! It is made with papaya enzymes that smooth and soothe the surface of your skin. There is also papaya seed oil to help keep your skin feeling hydrated throughout the night. And there are ingredients like blueberry extract and apricot kernel oil to further protect your skin and provide moisture. This moisturizing balm sounds so refreshing and I always love how good the Glow Recipe products smell.

PUREOLOGY Style + Protect On The Rise Root-Lifting Mousse

This hair mousse is perfect for any type of hair, natural or colored, and it’s supposed to give added volume to your roots, along with extra shine. This product is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, and sulfates so I feel good using this in my hair. Some of the main ingredients used are sunflower seed which filters out UV rays hitting your hair and vitamin E which ensures shine and helps fight color depletion. I’m looking forward to using this when my hair falls flat and could use some texture. Plus, I’ve loved all the Pureology hair products I’ve used in the past!

Skinceuticals Serum 20

I have used skinceuticals products before and I am a big fan for sure! I am always impressed with how effective and results-oriented they are. This serum has a high concentration of vitamin C which helps to protect your skin against environmental factors. This serum looks great because it targets wrinkles, acne, discoloration and signs of aging, which I am all about! It is also safe for all skin types and is made without parabens, fragrances, and alcohol. This is super easy to incorporate to your skincare routine as well, just applying 4-5 drops to your dry face before you apply moisturizer is all you need!

VITA LIBERATA Blur Skin Tone Optimiser

I am really excited to try this skin tone optimizer because it supposedly moisturizes and primes all in one! It is totally clean and natural and instantly blurs any imperfections on your skin. There is also a sheer tint that adds a natural glow to any skin which I’m looking forward to checking out. I feel like a product like this might allow me to enjoy more makeup-free days, or it could be a good initial step before makeup.

Colleen Rothschild Glycolic Acid Peel Pads with Blue Agave

My friend Ashley loves these peel pads so I had to give them a go! These are spa strength peel pads that are made to treat skin clogging dirt, debris, and sebum. It is formulated with glycolic and lactic acids that fight fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Just one pad can help reveal a brighter complexion and leave your face feeling refreshed and brighter. There is also blue agave and sea water infused in the pads that help soothe and calm your skin. I am very interested in trying out these pads each day and seeing how these unique ingredients help my skin.

July Beauty: Refresh & Rescue

Perricone MD Cold Plasma+ Eye:

I really wanted an eye cream that targets those fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles and was so happy with this cream! I saw a great improvement in the reduction of crow’s feet and fine lines. I would definitely recommend it, especially for my fellow moms!

Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Serum:

This serum has cucumber seed oil that helps soothe and calm your skin and leaves it feeling softer and smooth. It was super easy to add 2 to 3 drops of this serum into your daily or nightly skincare routine. It is dermatologist tested and leaves my skin feeling so refreshed.

First Aid Beauty FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask:

 I love First Aid Beauty products, so it was no surprise how much I loved this rescue mask! This mask is formulated with clean ingredients and is verified clean at Sephora too! This mask is perfect for dryness, dullness, redness or uneven skin texture and it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. It was so interesting to see how much of the mask absorbed into my face and how that changed over the course of the month.

Bliss Makeup Melt Wipes: Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes:

I really wanted to like these makeup remover wipes but they didn’t really do it for me. They are made with naturally derived ingredients and don’t have any harmful chemicals, but I felt like the wipes didn’t do the best job taking off my eye makeup. I usually followed this up with another cleanser and it made me realize I’m just not the biggest makeup remover wipe person. I think the balm I’m trying this month is a little more my style!

Arcona Celestial Activating Essence:

New favorite add on product! First of all, I love how easy it is to inorporate. I just spritz it into my face serum. It smells amazing {kinda like a fruity mocktail},  and has natural ingredients. The essence contains antioxidants such as chamomile, rose, and green tea that fight against environmental impurities and protect your skin’s surface. I love how quickly this product refreshed my skin and made my skin feel hydrated.

I’m really excited to try these new powerhouse products in August! Have any of you tried them? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
