DAAAAAAMN Sarah! Back at it with the favorites post! Haha well.. I haven't done a favorites post in a while, and that's simply because I was using all the same products I told you about in the last post. But this month with my trip to NYC and my friend Stephany coming to Guadeloupe and showering me with gifts, I have so many new products I am obsessing over and that I really need to share with you guys!
White lace everything. On dresses, tops, shorts, bikinis. This month favorite combo was denim and white lace with hints of gold jewelry and hardware. Can summer come faster please?
I think this month my stars aligned and the universe wanted me to finally find a perfect combination of skin care products that would leave me with perfectly hydrated and glowy skin. All thanks to a combination of four magical products: something old and something new, something borrowed and something blue.
An old favorite of mine that I rediscovered this month after a friend gifted it to me is the L'occitanePivoine Flora hand cream. I use it every night before going to bed on my hands and elbows and it makes me feel like I am going to lay down in a field of peonies for the night!
The new product I tried this month in my skincare routine is the SKII facial treatment essence. When I received this travel sized product from Influenster for free for testing purposes I was simply ecstatic! I had been eying it at Sephora for the longest time. In fact I really don't like wearing moisturizing face lotion when I'm in Guadeloupe and in general in the summertime because it's way too hot and I find that it simply makes my skin feel oily and sticky. That's my I love face essences so much, and let me tell you this one hydrates like no other! An absolute holy grail product for me. #myessence #skii
The product I borrowed from my mom (ok more like stole to be honest!) this month is the Khiels Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a nighttime facial oil with distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin by morning. A couple of drops of this miracle worker on the face and neck before going to bed go a long way! My skin feels perfectly hydrated, smooth and nourished by the morning. I also noticed a reduction in my blemishes!
And finally the something blue is this delicious (not that I actually eat it, but I totally would if it were possible!) rose and mandarin lip balm. I have tried so many lip balms, from Baby Lips to Chanel, but no other lip balm comes close to this one. First off it's a very liquid consistency so it glides on to the lips perfectly and is very long lasting. Secondly, the smell is just absolutely amazing. Third, the packaging is adorable!
As usual my make up favorites are lip products but I just can't help it! It's way too hot and humid here to wear a full face of make up so I usually just do my brows, line my eyes and put some mascara on and let my lips be the focus point! I rediscovered my love for NYX this month and literally all of these shades were on rotation.
My go to bag this whole month was this little cutie pie by Luana Italy. Luana's bags mix classic silhouettes with a subtle edge and luxe feel. They are designed with a modern vibe and European spirit for the fashion girl always on the go. They are available at Saks Fifth Avenue or on their website (and you can get a 15% discount from anything on the LUANA site with the code SHOPWEARREPEAT ;) ).
You guys!! I haven't bought any new perfume in THE LONGEST time and that's because I have way too many (and I'm sure I'm not the only one!). But as soon as I smelled Chloé's Roses scent I fell in love! I almost bought it at the duty free at the airport while traveling to NY but decided against it at the last minute. And guess what I stumbled upon on a random T.J. Maxx run while in New York? This beautiful set containing the fragrance, a body lotion and a body wash! All of this for cheaper than what I would have paid the perfume bottle at the airport. If that wasn't a sign that I NEEDED to get it, I don't know what is then..
My favorite way to relax this month was diving into Love Style Life by Garance Doré! After having seen this gorgeous book on countless Instagram pictures I had to add it to my wishlist and my lovely friend Steph got it for me! I was so pleasantly surprised by going through it: it's so funny and lighthearted but at the same time gives you new ideas and a fresh perspective on so many aspects of daily life! It's divided in 5 main topics: style, work, beauty, elegance and love. I 100% recommend it to every single girl out there!
