June Favorites 2020 ♡

Here are my top picks from June!

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Instant and Long Term Lip Plumper.  I apply this gloss before I do the rest of my makeup giving it time to work. I notice it does plump and make my lip shape more defined. Even wearing it on its own helps to naturally define your lips. It does make a difference and is a good first step to do before applying lipstick, liner and gloss.

Tosowoong Hair Repair Sleeping Pack. This is my first time trying out a hair “sleeping pack”. After washing your hair, apply this to have it dry silky and soft. It’s like a leave-in-conditioner. I use it on dry hair and it tames flyways. I like it because it doesn’t leave a waxy residue. Even when using it on dry hair it leaves it soft and easy to slick back.

Biore UV Watery Essence SPF. This is the sunscreen I’ve been using everyday. It’s from the Japanese Biore line. I love it because it has a watery texture and sinks into skin quickly. There is no white cast and doesn’t make skin oily. The feel of it is like a watery gel lotion. It is good for layering with other morning skincare and before makeup. Plus its SPF 50+ so your skin is protected.

Sigma Gel Liner and Sigma Eye Liner E11 Brush. Now that I’ve tried this one I don’t think I’ll ever go back to any of the liquid or gel liners I’ve used before . This gel liner is so creamy and easy to work with. It doesn’t smudge threw out the day either. The brush does make a difference too. Making it easy to use the liner and draw cat eye with. Both elevate eye liner game to the next level! ^_^. 

Revlon Super Lustrous Gloss left: Snow Pink right: Sandstorm.  I think these are some of the best drugstore lip glosses. They are a thick formula and last on the lips. The finish of them is comparable to MAC Dazzleglass. These two shades are perfect on top of nude lipsticks and liners. The shade Sandstrom is a dupe for MACs Moth to Flame gloss.

Drunk Elephant “Minis” Skincare Kit Review

During Sephora’s Spring Sale Event I purchased the Drunk Elephant Minis Kit. It comes with travel sizes of their skincare essentials and most popular products. I’m late to the hype and haven’t tried any of Drunk Elephant products before.

The kit includes 8 products and a plastic travel bag. I figured now was a good time to try all the steps so I stopped using my regular skincare and dedicated using all the products. These sizes lasted me about 2 weeks. Here is my honest review and what I’d purchase full size vs. what I wouldn’t.

What I wouldn’t repurchase fill size:

Protini Polypeptide Cream: I know that it is one of their most hyped about products but honestly it feels like a regular non-scented cream from the drugstore. Also it wasn’t hydrating and thick enough for dry skin. It worked okay but nothing worth the price. Non scented and non greasy were the bests part about it.

Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil:  Used this for one night on my face and it was a fail. It’s has a too greasy feeling on the skin and didn’t absorb at all. It made my face feel itchy and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, skincare oils don’t work that well for layering on sensitive skin. I use them for my legs and butt area so this is how I’ll be using this one up.

T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum: I really wanted this to work for my skin but it was too harsh of a glycolic strength. It’s a AHA/BHA blend which aids in gently exfoliating and helping cell turn over. But when I applied it all over my face it made certain parts burn and turn red to the point I stopped using it. I find it works best only a few drops in my t-zone. If you have sensitive skin be cautious because it can make your skin tender. In general products like these work best for oily/acne prone skin.

B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum: Just like the face cream this serum is not “hydrating” enough. It’s a basic light weight serum that soaks quickly into the skin. I used it at night but the next morning my skin wasn’t plump or glowly looking at all. Again very basic but nothing worth the price.

What I would repurchase full size: 

Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense: This was one of my favorites in the whole kit. I love applying it before foundation or BB cream. The SPF goes on white but turns clear when working into the skin. There is no greasy or thick layer left behind and it actually  makes skin look glowly when wearing it on it’s own. During the day it doesn’t get oily under makeup either. One of the best facial sunscreens I’ve tried.

C-Firma Day Serum: For a morning serum this one is good because it’s thin textured and  layers well with other products. It has vitamin C in it and I did notice over the last two weeks it helped to brighten my complexion.

C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream: Even though I didn’t notice too much of a fading in my under eye bags or darkness, this eye cream firmed skin under the eye well. Meaning it helped with lines and puffiness by morning time. It also didn’t irritate my eye area and absored well as one of the last skincare steps.

Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser: Even if I forgot double cleanse (oil then cleanser) I felt like this removed more makeup and dirt in one step than my regular drugstore cleanser. The Jelly cleanser removes eye makeup and doesn’t burn your eyes. It’s good for sensitive skin and make skin dry after using it. I love the texture too, it starts as a jelly and then foams up to a creamy cleanser.

That was my review on the Drunk Elephant Minis Skincare Kit. Overall I noticed my complexion became a little more even toned but nothing so amazing I’d switch all my skincare steps. Nevertheless, I did find a few products that I will incorporate into my routine. I’m glad I was able to try everything out myself and see what the hype was all about.
