Can you guys believe it’s already August?! It feels like June & July just flew by and we are now well on our way into the most magical season of all.. FALL (my personal favourite.) In my mind, August 1st basically means the beginning of Fall. I know, I know… all you Summer lovers are probably cringing right now. 😉 I just really LOVE Fall. Anywayyyy, more about that later. Let’s get back to summer shall we? Here’s our monthly list of beauty products that we have been using and loving recently. ~ Natasha
(can I just insert here that the above paragraph was written by Natasha and I (Laura) totally oppose to saying the ‘F’ word (Fall) in the middle of summer!) 😉

JERGENS Natural Glow +Firming Daily Moisturizer
This product has been one of our go-to’s for many years. Jergens Natural Glow +Firming Daily Moisturizer gives your skin a beautiful gradual colour after each application. On top of providing you with a gorgeous natural looking tan year-round, it also contains six anti-cellulite ingredients clinically proven to firm, tighten and reduce cellulite. Well yes please!
We like this product so much that we previously mentioned it on our blog, see here. Jergens recently re-formulated the product and this new version includes Black Tea. In 2015 it was given the Readers Choice Beauty Award.
We’ve tried numerous self tanning products (including some of the more expensive brands) over the years, but we still consistently use Jergens. Retailing for only $11.99 it’s affordable, it doesn’t have that strong self tanner odor, it moisturizes, doesn’t streak, and you get a subtle, luminous tanned glow. What more could a girl possibly want in a self tanner?! We usually use the fair-medium since we both have ghostly pale skin, but this time we went for the gusto and got the medium-tan option. We both found that our skin looks darker after only 1 application which we both love. So now we use it every 2nd-3rd day to maintain that tanned look.
If you are searching for that perfect liquid eyeliner, then look no further! It’s their #1 seller for a reason. I have been using (and recommending) Stila’s liquid eyeliner in black for years. It is a staple in my makeup bag. It wears beautifully, doesn’t run or smudge and you can create any look you desire. From thin precise lines to thick bold lines and of course the classic cat eye.
The Smudge Stick pencil liner in blue is also waterproof, goes on smooth and stays in place all day. I like to use this blue pencil just above my liquid liner on the top lids only and blend it out to create a more dramatic smokey effect. Switching up my regular black liner for a blue is a nice refreshing change and makes the eyes pop. Gorge. ~ Laura
