July Favourites 2013

Hey loves! I hope you are having a lovely day. Today, I'm back with a July Favourites post. I have a couple of beauty favourites along with fashion and some random favourites as well to show you all. This month I've really been trying quite a few new products and I'm super excited to share them with you. So let's get started!


The first product I have here to show you all is a perfume by Flora by Gucci in the scent Gracious Tuberose. It's such a lovely scent and I'm not even going to try explaining the scent because I'm terrible at that. However, click here to read how Gucci describes it. I've been wearing it non-stop since I've gotten it because it's not too strong of a perfume but still lasts on me all day long.

The second product I have here to show you is a sunscreen which can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart. I've been using Bioderma's Photoderm SPF 60 Cream for more than the month of July now and it would be insane not to include it in this month's favourites. It says it's Sunburn protection, moisturizing, and non oily. I totally agree with that and what I do is use this under my makeup every single day. I apply this after my morning skin care routine.

Now along the lines of face products, I have a mask that I've been absolutely loving. I purchase mine at a local supermarket called T&T. However it's also available for purchase online at sites like Sasa. It is the Royal Jelly Mask by My Beauty Diary. With this mask I find that it helps to reduce redness and leaves my skin feeling soft. Also, what I love about this mask is that I have really sensitive skin and this mask does not break me out all all.

This is the last face product I have to show and it is the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-hr Perfecting Primer. I've been using this primer every single day under my makeup and I love how it makes my makeup stay on all day. Plus it's waterproof which makes it great for those hot summer days. I also find that it does a great job at making my foundation apply on very smoothly. I purchased mine at Sephora 


The next product here is a deodorant which is simply amazing. It is the Dove clear tone skin renew anti-perspirant deodorant. It's supposed to renew your skin and I've been using it for the month of July and so far I've been seeing some pretty good results. It's definitely lightening my underarm region which often gets darken from shaving. For those who have the same problem definitely check this product out! I bought mine at Walmart.

Another favourite I have for this month is a nail polish by Topshop in the colour Pillar Box. Recently I've been getting into red nail polishes again and this is the perfect shade of red. It's a true pillar box red colour. Definitely go to Topshop and check out their nail polishes even if this colour isn't your thing, they have a ton of their nail polishes on sale in store at the moment!

Next I have a hair accessory which I've been loving. I've been loving scrunchies. Totally retro but trust me on this one. It's perfect for anyone with thick hair. The scrunchies I find really hold up my hair well and plus they look cute on your wrists when they're not in your hair. They also don't have the metal part on it which means it won't damage your hair. Mines are from Ardenes but you can also purchase thicker ones at American Apparel.

That's it for my beauty and fashion favourites. Now I have some a music favourite for you. I've been listening to Rum Pum Pum Pum by f(x) non-stop. Definitely check this song out and their whole album called Pink Tape. It's absolutely amazing. #kpop.













And that's the end of my July Favourites. I hope you guys found this post interesting and definitely try out some of these products that I mentioned in today's post.
