There are some things I buy that I never get the chance to share on my blog. This Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment was one of them. I first heard of this from Hollyannaeree in her Quick Hair Tip video. At first I used it like her, as a pre-treatment, which worked out great. But then I started using it as a hair oil on my towel dried hair which also worked well. It left my hair feeling nourished, moisturized, and silky. It is made with African Macadamia oil which drew me in because I love using macadamia oil for my hair. The product is more thin and oil-like than what I'm used to (the other hair oils I use have a thicker consistency). It claims that it doesn't leave your hair feeling greasy, which is true, but, it does have a tendency to look oily if you apply too much. Just be mindful of this- which isn't hard since the pump only dispenses a small amount. A little goes a long way which is why this oil is budget friendly.
Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 50+ is my most favourite sunscreen to use. I like sunscreens in lotion form as opposed to cream because it doesn't feel as thick and heavy and it's so much easier to apply and spread. I like this sunscreen because it doesn't smell like your typical sunscreen lotion and it has a high SPF. I tried Neutrogena's, which I liked, but it's not available year round so that's unfortunate. I also tried Shiseido's Japanese sunscreen UV 50PA+++ which I liked, but I found it a little too watery and oily feeling.
I brought all of these (and a couple more not shown) to Montreal with me. I also found myself reaching for them prior to that in July as well. I found myself more drawn to pink than coral this summer. I didn't do swatches because I took pictures at night and didn't have access to good lighting. If you still want them just let me know in the comments.
These two MAC blushes, "Pink Swoon" and "Peaches" were the blushes I went to this Summer. Some days I felt for the pink blush, other days I felt for a peachier look. These two are perfection because there's no second guessing if it's a pink or orange. They are what they are, no questions asked. They also contain no shimmer which is great if you want a more natural look or if you don't want the extra pizazz.
And my beloved discontinued Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine Bronzer in #002 "Honey Matte". I have a couple more other bronzers, a Nars and discontinued MakeUpForever, but this Dior one is my favourite. It's just the right balance of colour, not ashy yet not too orange or brown, just perfection. I also love how it's super matte which makes it great for contouring. I haven't bought a bronzer in a long time and I'm contemplating on whether I should.
September is going by fast. Hopefully I'll be better at posting with that month than I was for this post. Truthfully I have more products I wanted to show in this post but I excluded them because I haven't done my Montreal post yet. I can mention though that I became completely obsessed with coffee (I now can drink it with just milk and sugar!) and I like tea! Well, Chrysanthemum at least so far. And that's all I'll say until I get going on those posts...
