June Favorites

Now that it’s July, it’s time for my June Favorites video! Grits made an appearance as well (remember this video?) but seemed rather uninterested. 
The majority of the products that I loved this past month are hair and skin care related. I only grabbed a few makeup products to throw in there at the end.

    Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly just featured the Orgins Ginsing eye cream as her June favorites as well. Do you follow her? She’s another lovely fair skin/blonde that I love to follow. http://prettyshinysparkly.com/ I have those tweezers in bright orange and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I’ve even caught my bf using them. πŸ™‚

      I’ve heard of her but don’t follow

    I’ve been debating whether or not to buy the body shop coconut shower cream for a while, you’ve helped me make up my mind!

    Love your favorites videos, Kate! I’ve been loving the Pureology volume shampoo/conditioner, but I’ve been thinking about giving Living Proof a go next. You convinced me πŸ™‚

    FYI – I think the link to the bare escentuales got mixed up with the Orgins link. I tried it twice and it took me to the Orgins page.

      Same thing with the Living Proof.

      The tweezerman link is coming up as the aldo shoes… πŸ™‚

    I think it is funny that you said, “you don’t want to jingle.” I actually love to jingle! Noisy bracelets that jingle are my favorite. I like people to know I am in the room πŸ™‚

    I’m a Pureology diehard fan, but Living Proof sounds great and I’ll give that a try next. Thanks for the rec! This was a great video πŸ™‚

    Oh, I love Living Proof (I used to work with the MIT Faculty member that created it and I would go to their lab to let them test the new products on my hair before they became big!). I’m a huge fan of the No Frizz line. It’s one of the few hair care products that does what it claims to do.

    I recently tried the Living Proof nourishing styling cream on a whim. I love it. I have very curly hair, and it leaves my curls so soft and frizz free. I plan on trying other Living Proof products when I use up my current shampoo and conditioner.

    So you’ve replaced Benefit’s It’s Potent! with the Origins eye cream? And is this hairstyle similar to your “just bend the ends” tutorial? I LOVE it!

  14. Posted July 3, 2013

    Cats are so inapprop! It’s hilarious that Grits is taking some time to groom in the background. I love it!

    I love Origins! I pretty much love everything they have. I’m not really a fan of my current eye cream, so I think I’ll try out the GinZing eye cream. I love the iridescent factor. Anything for these dark circles!

  16. Posted July 3, 2013

    I’m obsessed with all things coconut so I might really need that shower cream.

  17. Posted July 3, 2013

    Those sandals are so cute! I think they are so versatile πŸ™‚
    And I love the body shop products.. The scents of their products are divine!!

    If you like the Vitazing eye cream, you will probably really like the Bitazing face moisturizer. I got one in my Borchbox and was so impressed I had to get the full size.

  19. Posted July 3, 2013

    BRONZER ALERT! Kate, I’m also a fair skinned beauty and LOVE the Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powder in Desert Sun (with shimmer). Curious if you have ever tried it!

  20. Posted July 3, 2013

    The Origins GinZing is one of my favorites! I used to work at Dillard’s and got hooked on that stuff. It really helps my dark circles and makes me feel so awake!

    And the cat. OMgosh.

    How funny, I’ve been totally into coconut scented things too! Need to try that shower cream!


  26. Posted July 3, 2013

    Maybe your June faves weren’t Grits’ June faves…Just sayin’. πŸ™‚

  27. Posted July 3, 2013

    I’m happy to see that The Body Shop’s coconut shower cream is one of your favs! I’ve been meaning to try it soon πŸ™‚

    enjoyed the favorites! I agree, about The Body Shop bottles being hard to squeeze! I’ll have the try the shower cream, I love Coconut!

  29. Posted July 3, 2013

    Sephora liquid liner is my go-to! Love this post!

    Love the paint color of your bedroom. Any idea of the color?

  32. Posted July 4, 2013

    I recently bought my first body shop product, its the ginger shampoo for itchy scalp. I really love it. I also love that they have good prices and you can buy the smaller bottle to try it out. And they have a money back guarantee, win win!

  33. Posted July 5, 2013

    I am always big fan of Kate whatever you publish i really like it with the core of the heart….
    Thanks again……for this wonderful post..

    LOL! you are funny Kate. I must say the whole body shop unsqueezable bottle is hilarious …and precisely why the terrorists hate us…or as most people call it a “first world problem”lol! “as I am standing in a room devoted souly to being clean…the hot water comes out of the faucet instantly and runs for as long as you need (unless it’s unusually long shower) and the coconut soap takes forever to come out of a prepackaged bottle!” lol…
    great vids your voice is super soothing…not in a creepy way but me and my 7 month old just sit here and watch you…ha!

    I always feel like I have really dirty feet too! I don’t know if you have tried the ballet liners for heels and flats, but I love them! They keep the insides of your shoes cleaner.

    I absolutely love love love those sandals!!

    I love these videos! I am always looking for new products that just might be THE ONE. Thanks a bunch! (you are looking great BTW!)

  39. Posted August 1, 2013

    I love all things Origins!! I use their High Potency Night a Mins mineral night cream, I have the ginzing as well as the Plantscription anti aging eye cream (got a full size free from Sephora during a special)and I have their Drink Up night mask. Yes, I’m a bit obsessed, but for good reason πŸ™‚ I use the Drink Up night mask once or twice a week after using the Purology micro scrubber exfoliant (that you recommended). I definitely recommend trying more Origins products. You won’t be disappointed!
