Most Loved Products – August

I’m often asked, “what are your most loved products?” So I wanted to start a monthly thing here on the blog where I share the products I reach for the most each month.  This should be easy considering I supposedly use them often, right?  I thought it would be fun to add some personal life highlights of the month too!

Since we are sort of early in September – what a fabulous month by the way – my birthday month; let’s start with August.  August was awesome, the girls started back at school, Jasmine being at Penn State as a Sophomore and Erica is a Junior in high school.  Jas moved into her very first apartment – a big milestone – and Erica has started her journey into college preparation + scored 40 points higher on her last SAT than the previous.  Handclaps for Erica!!  My youngest brother celebrated his 46th birthday and if you are as grateful as I try to be – being gifted another year of life with the year we just had is a HUGE blessing!!!  Happy Birthday, Markos!

I think that’s about all that happened in August for now let’s get into the product sharing…


Facial oils can help reduce your wrinkles because they contain essential ingredients like antioxidants and pass through the skin quickly, preventing water loss while keeping skin plump + glowy. A fantastic alternative to regular cleansers, cleansing balms tend to have a creamier texture and are usually oil-based. Because of this, they can give your pores a deep clean while allowing your skin to retain plenty of moisture to keep it feeling soft and smooth. Cleansing balms can be used on all skin types too.
Using a lip scrub helps you buff away dry skin to restore the smoothness and softness of your lips. … You may notice that your lips more easily absorb other products, such as lip butter or classic lip balm after you use an exfoliator as well.
Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help minimize the appearance of these wrinkles as well as tackle other skin concerns like dryness, puffiness, dark circles, and pigmentation. SPF is short for sun protection factors. In sunscreen, SPF helps to block your skin from the sun’s radiation. The sun emits two types of radiation: UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays contribute to the signs of aging in the skin, like wrinkles and sagging.
Supposedly the floral scent of the gardenia has properties that can induce relaxation and even reduce stress. … According to certain sources, gardenia could even be used as an aphrodisiac. The feminine scent is thought to stimulate the libido and can be diluted and used as a massage oil or add to a bath.
