Is it just me or did June fly by entirely too fast?!?! Nevertheless, it's time for another monthly must haves. With summer finally being here my must haves for this must reflect the change in the weather. So enough chit chat and onto the products.
Since I somehow managed to finish all my perfumes. Don't ask me how but I have. But until I find another scent to purchase I've been spraying on this Japanese Cherry Blossom body mist from Bath & Body Works. I've never been into super sweet or fruit fragrances so this one is perfect. This one is slightly floral with tones of musk. Despite it being a body mist it still last pretty long.In my opinion, perfect for year around. It's described as a fresh blend of japanese cherry blossoms, crisp pear, mimosa petals and sweet sandalwood.
Some people gravitate toward bright colors during the summer months. I tend to go toward my neutrals which can go with anything. Some of my favorite nail polish are the Julie G nail polishes. Hands down some the best on the market. Her color range is wide and the staying power is on point. I think I had this nail polish on my toes for the entire month of June. It's Stiletto, I would describe it as a warm taupe neutral. Looks fantastic on tanned skin too.
I stumbled across Dr. Miracles "Feel It" Formula Deep Conditioner one day while in the beauty supply and each time I need a packet of conditioner I snatch it up. I love the smell of it which is probably because of the jojoba oil but I also love the slip of it. A little bit goes a long way. Plus it has a tingling sensation which makes it feel refreshing to the scalp. The only drawback is I haven't found it yet in a bottle. I just keep coming across it in the packet form. Guess I'm just going to have to keep looking for it.
Sunscreens really are all the same when you think about it but it's the SPF level that you need to worry about. With it now being summer I have whipped out my tried and test Equate Sunscreen in Ultra Protection in SPF 50. I think I've had this bottle so far for 2 summers and I haven't gotten burned yet. (knock on wood) Even if I'm going to be out in the sun for a hour or two I still reach for this baby. I'll rather be safe then sorry.
Suave Almond + Shea Butter Conditioner is hands down my ride or die conditioner. I've been using this when I used to perm my hair two years ago. I was still using it when I transitioned and I'm still using it now since I'm natural. It's the first conditioner I put in my hair when I'm deep conditioning. Because one it has amazing slip. Two it really detangles my hair. Three my hair loves it. Four it's cost effective and five it smells amazing. If I had to choose only one conditioner to use in my hair every week it would be this one. When I don't use it which is very rare my hair will act a fool. I'll be detangling forever and a day. If I was to recommend any conditioner it would be this one. Don't walk, run and go get a bottle. You'll be thanking me later.
With it being summer I rarely wear makeup because what's the point. It's just going to melt off anyway but when I have to my go to lipstick is by MAC in the shade Cherish.
As you can see from the photo above mine is well loved and I'll be needing another one in the distant future.
On the MAC website, it's described soft muted peachy-beige. Which is exactly correct. It goes with just about anything and you can change the shade of the lipstick pretty easily with any lip liner. I normally pair either a brown lip liner to make it more brown. Or I use MAC's lip liner in Whirl all over the lip and then a brown on the out edge of the lips. Perfection. No lip gloss is needed since it's a satin finish.
So this completes this month's must haves. What's you're must haves for June? Feel free to share below.
