August's Top 5

Sassy Legs Hair Remover Pads:
These actually don't remove hair. At all. They do leave whatever areas you use them on incredibly soft. Now, as I've posted before, I had dry, flaky skin on my brow bone. It was super gross, made me look aged, and it made my foundation look even worse! I tried using an emery board on it earlier this month, but it was too harsh, and since I was messing with these on my arm I tried it on the dry skin. These might not be able to remove hair, but they're WONDERFUL at gently buffing away dead skin, and leaving silky, smooth-as-a-baby's-bottom skin behind. Glad I gave these a second chance.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara:
This. Is. My. Favorite. Mascara. Ever. It doesn't really run on me, and unless I'm DYING of sweat, it doesn't leave a "look at me I'm a raccoon!" effect under my eyes! They keep my lashes looking curled, and it makes them stand out too! It's wonderful, since I have straight, short eyelashes.

Gold Mustache Necklace:
Fond this little beauty at Forever21 for about six dollars, and I'm SO glad I did. Definitely one of my "hipster" pieces. I have gotten a few compliments on it, asked where I got it, etc. Unfortunately, the only way to get one is hope they have it in stock in store since they don't sell it online. Similar ones like this cost over $20! So be wary if you are looking for one!

China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat:
This is my favorite top coat of all time. I am so impatient, it's not even funny, but if you put this over a semi-dry layer and wait a minute (really thirty seconds, but I wait extra just because) they feel dry to the touch (with your skins, not your nails)! Though I wouldnt' advise doing something too rough to your nails, you can go about your day like showering, typing, writing, etc. and not have to worry about messing up your nails. I just love it!

Witch Hazel:
I wasn't really happy with this ... at first. I picked it up because I heard it was a good toner and it was cheap (about two dollars!). I usually used a Sea Breeze astringent, but the bottle is smaller than this, costs more, and the astringent used to sting my skin with how harsh it was. When I first started using it, I hated it because it has a natural scent and I wasn't used to it (it honestly smelled a little gross at first) but it did such a good job that I was willing to work with it a bit. I'm really glad I gave it a chance. It keeps my skin clean, gets rid of any excess dirt/makeup/oil that may have been left after washing my face, and helps keep my acne at bay. As for the smell? It wears off in a few short minutes, so it's not a huge concern anymore. It's perfect if you have normal to oily skin, as it helps with the oil while not drying you out at all!

Thanks for reading!
