August 2013 Beauty Favorites

Hello, lovelies~ August is coming to an end, so it is with great joy that I present to you my beauty favorites throughout the month of August. Aside from it being a happy month because of Mr. G's birthday, I settled my own problems that I had earlier this month. Glad to say that I am happy to have found the solution to it~ Let me show you what my favorites are!

1. Schwarzkopf Q10 Recharge Conditioner
One of the silicone-free conditioners that is available in most supermarkets. I bought mine at SOGO Food Hall for my brother and I. We both love it! It smooths my hair without causing it to look so limp and lifeless.

2. Vaseline Healthy White Night Repair
I like the calming scent of this body lotion, unlike most Vaseline lotions that has its signature Vaseline scent. It also has a light consistency, making it sink immediately into the skin. Love!

3. Revlon New Complexion Oil Control Makeup Foundation
This has been my go-to foundation for this month. I love the matte finish it give my super oily face and keeps my face shine free for around 4 hours. You can read my in-depth review here, just click the link. 

4. Maybelline New York Super Mineral Two-Way Cake Foundation SPF 30/PA ++
On days when I don't want to wear heavy foundation, this TWC is the one I use. It felt light weight on my face and can stand the humid conditions where I work. 

5. Etude House Auto Eyebrow Pencil
This is similar with The Face Shop Auto Eyebrow that I have reviewed here. However, I like the texture of the 'pencil' more than TFS' because it is more sturdy. The triangular shape of the pencil makes it easy to draw an angle or arch on my brows.

Not so many favorites this month. Probably because I have the same favorites as last month, so I don't want it to be repetitive. There are a few products that I am currently trying out right now and two of them is already included in the 'Not So Impressive' list. Here they are.

1. Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Cleansing Oil
I should've stayed away from this product. I thought it was gonna be alright because I am going to use a face wash afterwards, but I was so, so wrong. It broke me out badly. It's a shame, really, because with the affordable price and effective product, it could be a hit if only it didn't break me out.

2. Acnes Facewash Deep Pore Cleanser
It has fine microbeads which is not too abrasive fro the skin, but it broke me out as well. Whyyyyyy?

Well, that was fun listing the things that didn't work for me because I wouldn't have to do a complete review on it, right? I think I will start to include some of the things that I dislike as well in my monthly favorites. Hmm, I think it should be called Monthly Likes and Dislikes now that it has a few items that I'm gonna be dissing, lol. Anyway, what are your monthly favorites? Let me know in the comments below and until then, I'll see you later~
