SKIN: Bioderma Hydrabio Tonique Moisturizing Toning Lotion

Really enjoying this toner! If you want to read my full review on this and why I love it so much click HERE! Lucky for you, I just did a recent post on this product!

FACE:  Real Techniques Buffing Brush

The Real Techniques Buffing Brush has changed my mind about applying foundation. I was always partial to using my fingers (which I still do prefer) however, this brush gives such a great finish when I use it for any foundation I use. Been using this for most of July and I haven’t had any issues with shedding, even after giving it at least 4 good washes already throughout the month!

BODY:  The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Beautifying Oil

If you’re the kind of person that can’t be bothered with lotioning after a shower because it just takes too much time, this oil will help you out! I think this might be my third bottle of this stuff since last Christmas — I love it! You can see in the photo that this one is almost done and I’ve got a Brazil Nut oil waiting for me in my back-up stash!!

HAIR:  Living Proof Full Thickening Cream

This little miracle product came in a Living Proof travel/trial set I purchased from Sephora for $35Cdn. The set came with a Living Proof Full Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, the Thickening Cream, a Root Boost spray and a Primer. For a person with fine, thin hair, I’m always looking for products that pump up the volume and make my hair look thicker. So far, out of the Living Proof set, I am really enjoying the Thickening Cream. A small amount — about a dime-size dollop — is more than enough for my almost-shoulder length hair. It gives a bit of a “stiff” feeling to my hair after blow-drying, but after using my straightener and combing through, it leaves my hair feeling and looking thicker. It has a really nice scent to it, almost citrusy and minty — same as the shampoo and conditioner. Definitely considering purchasing a full-size version of this hair thickener!

RANDOM FAVOURITE: Kicking Horse Coffee

I am a coffee freak. I need me a coffee at least once a day, especially in the morning. Do you know anyone with a Starbucks GOLD CARD because they buy so much coffee there?  Well, now you do… ME!!

If I’m not buying my coffee at Starbucks, I’m brewing it at home and the brand that I purchase the most (and loving this month) is Kicking Horse Coffee. The brand has a wide variety of beans — from light roasts to dark roasts, even decaf. My personal favourite is Three Sisters which is a medium roast, but the one I have here is a light roast I thought I’d try, Kootenay Crossing, and I’m loving it so far!

Kicking Horse coffee beans are certified organic and fair trade and also roasted in Canada – yeah!!

There you have it! My July favourites!

What are yours?

Thanks for reading Pretties!!
