My July Beauty Product Favorites (And Not So Favorite)

July Beauty Product Favorites
July was a mixed bag of products - lots of hits and misses. My skin has been badly breaking out with the obscene amount of sweat I've been producing in this horrendously humid weather so I've been trying lots to detoxifying my skin. Let's start with the good:

Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover $6.99 - This may not be a new product to the market but it's new to me. I've heard a lot of good things and finally got my hands on some. In one minute my cuticles were softened and pushed back! "Remover" is a bit of a scary word lol they're not completely zapped off but it gently gets rid of excess cuticles and makes them super soft. Highly recommend!

BiorĂ©® Baking Soda Pore Cleanser $5.99 - This product was sweeping the beauty blogging world so I was curious. It is gentle like Cetaphil with a little scrub to get a deeper clean. Really enjoyed this product especially with the price tag.

PIXI Glow Mud Mask $22 - Original review here. My new trusty fave at the end of the week.

DHC Face Wash Powder $12.50 - I can only try so many products so I often divvy up among coworkers and friends. Now my male coworkers have begun to be interested - yey! One is getting married in October and wanted to try some skincare products to get himself beautiful. I was happy to oblige. I passed along this DHC powder and he said he was really impressed! I've loved everything I've tried them so I can happily put my stamp on this product as well.
NYX Set it Don't Fret it $10 - Long story short: I had to fret it. I tried baking with it, I tried all over but it just wouldn't make a difference. Also, there are not a lot of colors so the light/medium shade was a tad too tan for me. I felt like it was clogging my skin so now, as you might have seen on Snapchat, I'm trying some all-natural makeup setting powders. Stay tuned!

e.l.f. Micellar Water $7 - Shared my review earlier this month. This is one you can skip.

S.W. Basics Toner $12 - I got this as a travel sample when I was visiting family in Jersey since I left my toner. I've enjoyed S.W. Basics products in the past but was not a fan of this. The smell was too strong. Thankfully I just got a tiny sample so I can quickly finish it.

What products did you love this month?
