Hey my beautiful people! I hope you had an amazing July. During the past month I started using a couple of new products, but I also re-discovered old favorites, such as the Stila Convertible Color in Peony, which I hadn’t used for months! Let’s take a look at my July favorites, shall we? If I've swatched/reviewed any of the products, I will link the relevant post to each product.

I’ve been loving the La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum so much this month! I’ve never tried a serum before, as I always thought they were for people with dry skin or something like that, but I was wrong. I’ve also been loving my skin, my acne treatment is going really well and I can finally leave the house without having to put concealer on my pimples, simply because I generally don’t get them anymore and this is lifechanging for me!! Those of you who had acne and got rid of it know what I’m talking about ;) So, which products have you used and enjoyed the most during the month of July? Do we have any in common? Let me know in the comments below! ;)
