august favourites

In the summer I don’t really use any makeup, but here are a few beauty favourites I have this month.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo

This isn’t really a beauty product, but I have been using this shampoo for about a month and a half and I am quite happy with it. They are only available at hair salons (possibly online too, not sure) After using it, my scalp and hair felt extra-clean. The tea tree leaves a tingling feeling and it great for people with dry scalps.

Spectro AcneCare® Deep Pore Vanishing Lotion

EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Summer Fruit

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish

The Spectro lotion is great for acne. I don’t have a lot of acne, but now and again I would get bad breakouts on my forehead or around my nose. I had been continuously using some Neutrogena acne care products, but nothing was working. Eventually I tried the Spectro lotion and now I don’t use anything else! The lotion contains benzoyl peroxide which reduces the amount of acne-causing bacteria. I definitely recommend this product, but make sure to follow the instructions on the bottle. Also, it is better to apply at night as it leaves a white residue when it dries (can be easily washed off!)

My lips get dry very easily, so I have been using these two products together frequently this month. I got the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish from my mom in a gift set and it works very well! I am also obsessed with the EOS lip balm…in my opinion the Summer Fruit flavour smells like the fuzzy peaches candy…yum! As you can see in the picture I have used quite a bit! I hope to get the Sweet Mint or Pomegranate-Raspberry flavour when I am done this one.

Now onto the entertainment favourites.

TV Show: Orphan Black

blog1a

My friend recommended that I watch this show and I’m glad I did. IT’S SO GOOD. It’s a BBC America production and is a sci-fi series set in Toronto, Ontario. The show is about a woman named Sara who witnesses a suicide of someone who looks like her. She assumes the life of the deceased woman and soon discovers she is one of many clones. Such a good series and Tatiana Maslany’s acting is phenomenal. Please start watching this show now!

Music:

Chartreuse – Capital Cities

My Number – Foals

Random favourites: Homeade blueberry muffins. I am addicted. There is a blueberry patch in a park near me and my sister and I go pick fresh blueberries for my mom to make desserts! :)
