Monthly Favorites : August 2012


Image source (pic edited by me)

Hey my beautiful people! How was your August? Mine was pretty nice, as I had a lovely vacation and I started using quite many new products that I ended up loving, so I’m gonna share them with you! If I've swatched/reviewed any of the products, I will link the relevant post to each product.


Froika Extra Mild Shampoo (I re-purchased it today, love it!)
Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Hair Mask (kept my hair soft after the beach)
Bioten Cellufight Exfoliating Shower Cream (wonderful exfoliator!)
Bioten Firming Body Lotion (smells lovely, absorbs quickly, hydrates for hours)
Korres Showergel White Tea Bergamot Freesia (mesmerizing light floral scent!)
The Body Shop Moringa Shower Gel (it kinda smells like jasmine! I like it a lot)
Frezyderm Second Skin Face Sun Screen SFP30 (clear like a primer, not sticky, not oily, amazing product!)
Avene Thermal Water Spray (so refreshing and soothing)
La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum (lovely serum)
Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser (if you have dry, normal or combo skin you will love this!)


L’Oreal Caress Lipstick in Seductive Beige (still loving this, it lives in my handbag lol)
L’Oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara in Black (HG mascara)
Elf Rejuvenating Oil Blotting Sheets (must-have for me!)
Elf Studio Cream Eyeshadow in Bronzed (gorgeous bronzey color that lasts)
Elf Studio Cream Blush in Tease (beautiful natural peachy color)
NYX Concealer in a Jar in Beige (I used it instead of foundation, it lasts for hours)
Korres Cherry Lip Gloss in 38 Cinnamon (lovely bronzey-nude lipgloss)
Korres Cherry Lip Gloss in 45 Coral (beautiful coral shade!)
Garnier Anti-Dark Cirles Roll-On in Fair (although it’s in Fair it works great for me)


The same as in February plus 2 more brushes/tools
Sigma F20 Large Powder Brush (great for bronzer all over the face)
Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge

Nail Stuff

Essence Vampire’s Love  Nail Polish in 05 Hunt Me If You Can ( it was LE, but Galactic Black from their regular line is basically the same)
Revlon Nail Enamel in Facets of Fuchsia (you HAVE to get this!)

I had been wanting to buy Facets of Fuchsia for so long, but I kept forgetting about it everytime I went to Hondos Center. Now it’s finally mine and the combination of the 2 nail polishes (Essence first and then Revlon on top) was just beautiful! Adding the Essence nail polish gave depth to the Revlon one and you could see some of the silver shimmer peeking through. Another thing I loved during the month of August was swimming and walking, because during my vacation I was eating SO much (the food was delicious) that I was afraid I would come back to Athens heavier (not good lol). Well, let me tell you that thanks to a lot of swimming and walking I came back from my vacation thinner than I was and this has never happened before lol! Swimming is such a great sport, I can eat whatever I want and I still lose weight and look thinner/more toned. So, which products/activities did you enjoy the most during the month of August? Do we have any in common? Let me know in the comments below! ;)


  1. The revlon polish is so pretty. I would love to get my hands on some of the new essence polishes.

  5. Aww, I love the Moringa smell! WHAT is this Revlon polish?? OMG, it looks so pretty! Swacthes please :D

  6. I love the Revlon, so glad you managed to remember to get it. I made a ring from mine because it was what I wore for my wedding. Sounds good about not gaining weight and eating more :)

  7. Αυτό το μήνα μου άρεσαν όλα τα αγαπημένα σου. Βέβαια το βερνίκι της Revlon μου έκανε το κάτι παραπάνω. :)

  8. I love this Revlon polish! It's going to my wish list :) And what a coincidence - I had a Revlon polish on my August favorites list too, but it's in 008 Sheer Mauve.
