July Products: Hit or Miss?

I'm trying something new on the blog today and that is sharing the products I've used for the month of July. So without further ado, here they are!
1. Fleur d'Or & Acacia Shower Gel

My sister gave me one as a present and I was hooked ever since. A little goes a long way with this gel and it foams up nicely on a loofa. This shower gel is flecked with tiny pieces of glitter but dissolves when it comes in contact with the skin. It leaves the skin moisturized and subtly fragranced. I'm on my second bottle now and I stocked up when L'Occitane recently had a sale! Would I repurchase this: YES.2. Fleur d'Or & Acacia Eau de Toilette 

I spray this on shortly after showering and it enhances the scent from the shower gel. The combination of Mimosa Absolute and Acacia is a perfect everyday summer fragrance.Tip: Apply your favorite perfume directly on your hotspots (wrists, neck, behind the knees, elbow pit (ha!) and base of the throat) to activate and make the scent last longer. Don't rub it in as this will break down the notes in the fragrance. Let it dry naturally.Would I repurchase this: YES.3. Citrus Verbena Refreshing Mist

You know those muggy days when your face just melts away the moment you step out of the house? This mist will save your face and ultimately, your day. It will hydrate your skin, leaving you cool and refreshed! Tip: leave it in the fridge and spray when it's cold. It is heaven in a bottle.Would I repurchase this: For the summertime, yes.4. Living Proof Products

My hair isn't the healthiest and especially when I don't condition, it can be a hot mess. When I got this as a reward at Sephora, I was excited. I've heard of Living Proof products but never really purchased one. For a sample, I have to say, they packed a generous amount of product in there. I use this while my hair is damp and I let it air dry. The result: perfect hair day. Would I repurchase this: YES. 5. Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads
This is the most effective breakout treatment I have ever used. A lifesaver when my face was determined to breakout days before I had to fly out for a wedding. It cleared my skin without causing any irritation or dryness PLUS it smells amazing. 
Would I repurchase this: YES.
Can you tell that I use this one daily? I wonder what gave it away. I love that this sunscreen is lightweight and holds up well in scorching temperatures. The only gripe I have with this lotion is that it leaves a white cast on my face when used on its own.
Would I repurchase this: No.
7. Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel

On first application, it instantly soothed and brightened my face leaving a cooling and tingling sensation after. It is lightweight and non-greasy. The downside: the pump dispenses a lot of product and you can't tell how much is left by the way it is packaged. Would I repurchase this: No.   
8. CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream

Last but certainly not the least is a drugstore find. I noticed a significant change in my dry skin after a few nights use. CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream has hyaluronic acid which attracts water to the top layer of the skin, improving it's moisture content making it more youthful.

Would I repurchase this: YES.

Have you tried any of these products? If so, I'd love to hear how it worked out for you! xx
