My June Beauty Product Favorites (And Not So Favorite)


This summer is flying by! June is ending so it's time to round-up my favorite and not so favorite products I tried this month. Summer is in full swing here in New York City with temperatures breaking 90 degrees so it's time to switch up your beauty routine. A lot of focus on skincare as the weather starts taking its toll. Let's start with my favorites:


                June Beauty Product Favorites
Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish $24 - When I was in Cali I picked up some new Pixi releases at Target including this Peel & Polish. "Natural fruit enzymes loosen dead skins cells, lactic acid gently exfoliates, cellulose peels & sugar extracts polishes, lifting away dullness revealing brighter skin." It smells delightful and is super gentle. It's a good at-home option when your skin needs a reboot.

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic $12 - As you may have seen on my Instagram Story (trying to use more even though I still love Snapchat) that I received a lovely package from Pacifica with a bunch of coconut scented products including their micellar water. I was running low on my Garnier micellar water so good timing! "Powerful yet gentle, this innovative tonic water helps capture and lift away dirt, oil, impurities and makeup without harsh rubbing or even rinsing. Leave skin feeling clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying. Coconut water, full of skin-loving beneficials, has a history of toning and hydrating." It helps remove skins and smells like coconut - what more could you want?

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick in Honey $24 - I received this in my Birchbox this month and I love it! It glides on gorgeously and I love the color. I'll definitely repurchase another once I run out.

Not so favorite June beauty products
AMOREPACIFIC Resort Collection Sun Cushion SPF30+ $40 - I received this in my Sephora Sun Safety Kit. I thought for some reason it was something else but when I realized it was just SPF cream I was curious as to why the cushion application. Never done that before and don't think I'll ever do it again.

You Are Amazing™ FINAL SPRITZ Mango Papaya Body Mist $3.99 - I've reviewed some of these products. I enjoyed the body scrub but finally had a chance to find this body oil and was sadly disappointed. I love mango, papaya, coconut, guava or any other summer scents but this sadly was overwhelmed by the alcohol smell. When I think of a body mist I think of hydrating, an extra step to lock in moisture with my lotion. However, alcohol dries your skin so sadly this did the opposite of what I wanted. If it smelled better maybe I'd use it as a freshen up in the city to not smell but couldn't even do that.

What products did you enjoy this month?
