The Beauty Edit: August


A round up of favorite beauty products from TCE team.

Oh August. I personally get super annoyed with August. It’s like summer is basically over, but it’s still super hot. So while I’m over clothes for the time being, I am NOT over skin care products. Every week, I seem to be falling more and more in love with skin and beauty products. So The Beauty Edit for this month is pretty serious;)

Olehenriksen Truth Serum Alissa ensured me that I need a Vitamin C serum in my life, so I picked up this on a whim when I was in Sephora 2 weeks ago. I haven’t 100% seen a difference yet, but I do love the way it feels when it goes on. So I’ll report back.

Ouai Matte Pomade When I cut my hair, I knew I wanted it to be shorter, choppy, and messy. My stylist told me to get a wax for the ends of my hair. SUCH A GAME CHANGER.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Guys. I have a super unfortunate problem. My lips are chapped all year round. Well, they used to be. Until I was introduced to this sleeping mask for your lips. It goes on super smooth and thick, and in the morning, my lips are ready for the day!

Cetaphil Facial Cleanser I use this every morning and night to wash my face (make sure you buy the facial cleanser and not the skin one).  Don’t let a drugstore brand product fool you, this product is great. I was first introduced to it by my dermatologist when I was in high school and have been hooked. I have pretty sensitive skin so the facial cleanser is great because it has no scent and is so gentle on my skin!

Kiehl’s Shampoo and Conditioner I was introduced to Kiehl’s products by my gym, Equinox, and have recently fallen in love with their shampoo and conditioner. I’ve used Drybar and Pantene for years now but it does not help with the humidity. For some reason, Kiehl’s just does the trick!

DevaCurl Melt Into Moisture If your hair is dry or damaged, you absolutely NEED this hair mask. I’ve been using it weekly for the past month and my hair has never felt softer. I even leave it in for a few hours when I’m cleaning. Talk about multitasking 😉

H2O+ Beauty Oasis Hydrating Treatment I heard a lot about this stuff for a long and the first time I tried it, I understood why. It’s a moisturizer that’s a gel consistency which makes it perfect to wear under makeup and it doesn’t lack on hydration. I love it so much that I completely used it up, down to the last drop!

IT Cosmetics CC Illumination Cream If you’re a #glowgetter like me, this is your next holy grail product. It leaves your skin looking flawless and radiant without being cakey, which is super important in the heat and humidity.
