My Beauty Favorites — Week of July 18-24, 2016

This week I have been trying lots of great products sent to me for my honest review.  There is amazing skin care, hair care and body care out there right now and I love discovering new products!

My faves this week include a hydrating toner, conditioning shampoo, luxe body lotions and amazing face masks:

No7 Beautiful Skin Refreshing Toner for Normal Dry Skin
No7 Beautiful Skin Refreshing Toner for Normal Dry Skin

No7 Beautiful Skin Refreshing Toner for Normal/Dry Skin ($8.99 USD) — Looking for a refresher from the heat? This toner cleanses the skin to leave it feelings radiant and reinvigorated. The product is formulated with a blend of rosehip oil and contains a blend of multivitamin and minerals to hydrate the skin. Gently remove makeup and cleanse the skin to leave it looking clear and healthy.

What I think: I like to keep this in the fridge.  It keeps it cool and it is so refreshing at morning or night!  It helps cleanse my skin and keeps it soft and hydrated.  And it’s really affordable as well.
