August 2016: Beauty Favorites

Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist,
one of my favorites for the month of August.
It is hard to believe that Summer is almost over. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that the year is flying by so fast. Only a few weeks ago, August started and yet we are already starting September. From August 1st to August 31st 2016, I have discovered quite a few favorites that I enjoy; however, only a few stood out this month. So, what are they? What are my beauty favorites for the month of August?

First and foremost, I am very obsessed with the Annick Goutal Rose Pompon eau de toilette spray. Never have I ever wore a fragrance with such a silage of which a little goes a long way. This fruity floral embodies magic to the senses. The notes consist of blackcurrant, rose, raspberry mingle, pink pepper, musk, cedar and patchouli with a hint of pink peony. Very similar to Baby Doll by Yves Saint Laurent, I think I prefer this fragrance over that one.

As of recently, I have to admit that I am modestly obsessed with the Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist. Not only is this product amazing to wear alone, but it is great to spray after you shampoo. This product has combated my hair oil without stripping it. Plus, it smells quite good too. I have tried so many dry shampoos and this is definitely my favorite right now.

I absolutely love Gavee Gold! Everything from the pristine packaging to the overall gold concept. The products are not a gimmick as they truly do work and deliver quite an experience. An experience that is very much needed in virtually every woman's skincare regimen. I know I have mentioned this brand multiple times in the past; however, recently I have developed an even greater love and appreciation for the Gavee Gold Diamond Cell Salt Polish. And like all of Tiffany Andersen's products from her world renowned line, everything is infused with gold.

The PIXI Beauty Multi-Balm is one of my favorite beauty products right now and quite possibly my favorite makeup product at the moment. This stay-on cream formula works as both a cheek and lip color. It goes on light and dries immediately. I love to use these products as a transitional shade for my eye shadow too and it works amazing as contour, especially the Sheer Sculpt which is a rich cocoa shade primarily made for contouring. If you are searching for that special multi-use makeup essential, this is it.

I have tried so many different protein powders; however, recently I have garnered a huge love and appreciation for the USANA MySmartShake Plant Shake Base. Made up of healthy and unique blend of both pea and potato protein, there is about 18 grams of protein in just one serving. Although this product is gluten-free, GMO-free and vegan, the taste is exceptionally good for a plant-based protein powder. This is definitely one of my favorite beauty/health products for this month.
