Cliché I know, but I cannot believe it is the end of August and that 2016 is already so far gone! I have anticipated this day for the longest time as it means I am nearing my departure date for the Netherlands. Eeeeeeeek!! So what were my August favorites? Let’s find out!
DermaFix DermaPolish Enzymatic Exfoliator
Sjo, this name is quite a mouthful! What I can also tell you is that this product packs some major punch in the exfoliating department. I published a full review on this exfoliator which you can read here if you missed it. 50g retails for R260 and 100g for R435 which is phenomenal value for money, available online and in selected salons.
Catrice Prime & Fine Beautifying Primer
This is without any doubt my favorite product of the month! In fact, I think it will rank high up on my ten favorite products of the year (this post will come a bit more towards the end of the year). I have done a full review on this primer and if you missed it you can read about it here. R93, available from Dischem.
Catrice Glam & Doll False Lash Mascara
Another Catrice favorite! No surprises here of course! I have seriously been loving the Catrice Glam & Doll False Lash Mascara during August and it has become my everyday go-to mascara (I think Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara has been officially dethroned!). It lifts your lashes, hold a curl and does not budge during the day. I do not experience any fallout or transfer when using this mascara. The mascara creates some serious volume and length and you can create va-va-voom lashes with minimal effort. R80, available from Dischem.
Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil
I cannot remember if I have mentioned the Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil previously in one of my monthly favorites posts. I am pretty sure I have but I don’t really care, I will mention it again because I love it that much! I love the zesty smell and that is actually foams up nicely. What I most like about it is that it doesn’t make my skin feel stripped and it doubles up as a fabulous shaving cream! Hello silky smooth legs! I have repurchased this oil so many times before that it is basically standard on my monthly shopping list! R80, available from Clicks.
LA Girl Gel Liner
I picked this up at a whim when I ran into Dischem a few weeks ago. It has been my go-to liner eversince and I have been majorly impressed. I use a Cala angled brush to apply the product and it simply glides on like a dream, thus leaving little room for error or uneven lines. What I really like about it is that it is jetblack even when dry and doesn’t fade into a charcoal hue like many liquid-and gel liners do. Once it is dry, you can wear it with confidence as it doesn’t budge. So, this little pot of goodness gets a big thumbs up from me! R60, available at Dischem.
Ok, this is it for my August favorites! There is a very good chance that I will not have a September Favorites as September will be a bit of a crazy month for me. I will definitely return to blogging as soon as possible, so you never know Have a lovely September, everyone! xx
