My Favorite Things – August

In the household category, my first August love is the Pledge Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner. I use this on pretty much everything in my home, even on my mirrors and electronics.  There are so many reasons why I absolutely love this product, but the top two reasons would have to be because it’s 99% natural and it’s not an aerosol.  Having one product that I can use on so many things is great and saves me space and time.

My second love are the Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes. I don’t think I could ask for more with these wipes.  They kill over 99.9% of common household germs and I can use them on my food preparation surfaces – without needing to rinse. I was told about the seventh generation wipes from a good friend who sings the company’s praises for making good earth-friendly products. As I have stated before, our family used Melaleuca products in our home for over eleven years, so now being able to shop locally for good earth-friendly products is awesome!

Cleaning Product - August Favs

In the health and beauty category of my August favs, my first loves are my Cetaphil Cleanser and Moisturizer.  I have been using these on a regular basis since the beginning of the month, and I must say I am very pleased with how my face feels.  I love that the moisturizer is light and after it’s applied I don’t realize I’ve put anything on.  Another perk about the moisturizer is it has SPF15.

My next August loves come from one of my favorite companies…Lush. I’ve watched several YouTube videos about the Lush hair care products. I’m a true believer of their line of body care products but had never tried their hair products. Before I left for Florida, I purchase three products that I felt would work best on my hair type: R&B – hair moisturizer, Curly Wurly – Shampoo for dry hair, and Retrend – a leave in conditioner.  I have been faithfully using all three products ever since I purchased them. The true tell-all came while on vacation, after being at the pool all day in the hot Florida heat, my hair would be totally dried out by the end of the day.  After shampooing and conditioning my hair, it felt so soft and full of moisture and no breakage. One of my favorite things about these products, but Lush products in general is they’re made with all natural products that are good for your hair and skin.

Beauty Products - August Favs

My last (and definitely not least) favorite product is my Juicy Bamboo Facial Wipes by Kaia. I used these to remove my makeup – even mascara. I received these as part of a mail order subscription – as a sample, and I’m in love with the way they make my face feel!  The wipes contain plant-based essential oils, organic honey and vitamins, and doesn’t have any alcohol, fragrance or parabens.   I use them every day, even when I don’t wear makeup.  I must confess that I didn’t just buy these this month however I did begin to use them on a regular basis starting this month.  : )

My Favorite Things – July

This month, I have several products I’ve tried and fallen in love with.   I must say I concider myself to be a loyal shopper, that means when I find a product I love, I will buy it until they stop making it.  Now granted I do try new things, however I will hold on to my old faithfuls. So this month, I decided to share what I found to be three of my new favorites.

July Favorites

EOS Lip Balm:

As for lip balms, I’m addicted to carmax (I already know what you are going to say…), I have several tubes throughout my home, purse and car.  When my daughter went to camp last month, I bought her a few of these EOS lip balms to go in her camp survival kit and she raved about how good her lips felt. A few weeks ago I purchased Lemon Drop for myself with a coupon I had.  I really like it, not only does it make my lips feel great, I feel good about wearing it since it has SPF 15, it’s PABA-free and has vitamin E.

ECOS Laundry Deteregent:

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post titled Getting Down and Dirty ~ A Healthy Comparison where I compared the ECOS and Clorox Green Works laundry detergents.  Well, I have washed load after load with the ECOS detergent and I think I can finally say, I have found our families new laundry detergent!

Talenti Caramel Cookie Crunch Gelato:

I’m surely not a gelato connoisseur and really can’t compare this to any other gelato I’ve tasted since this is the first. But what I do know is right now this is my one and only (gelato) guilty pleasure.  I was even at a loss just trying to pick which flavor I wanted to try, since Talenti has over 20 flavors to choose from, but this month it was all about the Caramel Cookie Crunch!
