July was a great month for new beauty and makeup products. So far August is going just as well. Here are my favorite products for the month of August, so far.
- HASK brand Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner. First things first, this stuff doesn’t smell amazing BUT it leaves my hair feeling clean, smooth, and shiny even after just one use. I have extremely dry, course, and thick hair (just so ya know what I’m working with). I actually started this early July, but I loved it so much I repurchased it early August. I don’t use this daily, I use it every other or sometimes every third day. I use a different brand in-between, usually Not Your Mothers Way to Grow Long and Strong. I like to use this the night before I plan to straighten my hair. I’ve found this makes my hair easier to straighten or curl and holds the style longer. Another tip, use a little more than normal shampoo and wet your lightly as you lather. Really get in there and scrub! It takes a tad more effort to get a lather but it does work! Want to try it? You can order it at Ulta.com.
2. Soap & Glory brand Breakfast Scrub. This exfoliating scrub is awesome. Like the packaging says its got a ‘Great Maple Scent!’ A little goes a long way with this scrub. I use it all-over, even on my face if I have some trouble spots. This leaves my skin feeling super soft. The only issue I’ve had is there can be a little ‘filmy’ feeling left behind if you don’t get it all off, so make sure you don’t skimp on the rinse off and get some nice hot water on you to help. I’ve seen this at Target and online at Ulta.
3. Ulta brand Energizing Coffee Body Scrub. This scrub is legit a tub of coffee that you rub on your body. It looks, feels and SMELLS like coffee. I don’t use this daily, but on the days I’m feeling more tired than normal I reach for this. This instantly wakes me up. If you love coffee you will enjoy this scrub. Leaves my skin soft and doesn’t take a lot of product. And you guessed it, you can get this at Ulta. 🙂
What are some of your favorite hair care products and body scrubs?
Oh ya, here is something else magical and amazing that happened in August. I didn’t drink it, but I had to have it. They finally spelled it right!? I mean maybe they’ve had LindsAy with an A all along….but I never found it. Thank you Subway!
