New in Beauty: August 2017

This month, I decided to focus on trying some new skincare products. My skin is in need of help, so I’m hoping these products can do something good for me!

Caudalie Lip Conditioner About two years ago, I had one of these I talked about my love for this lip balm in an empties post. I was really excited to get to use this again, but already, after only a few uses, I’m not sure why I liked it so much before. I don’t think it is all that hydrating and instead leaves my lips feeling very sticky. I’m using this at work, but as soon as I remember to bring in a replacement, I will be tossing this.

Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil This is an interesting product that provides the benefits of an oil without leaving your skin greasy and oily. I love using oils, but I often find my skin is too oily for them and therefore I’m left too oily for my liking. So I am really excited to test this product to see if it really does act as an oil without feeling like one.

Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen This is supposed to be a very lightweight sunscreen that absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything. I’ve also read that it doesn’t leave a white cast which is one of the most important things for me when choosing sunscreen. It is also super affordable if you buy the large tub!

REN Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot I am really excited to use this serum. It claims to “visibly firm, lift, and plump skin for a dramatically smoother, tighter, and hydrated appearance”, and from the reviews I’ve read, it actually does that short-term. I will be using this before heading out for the day/night to see if it really helps firm and enhance my skin.
