Bath & Beauty Report | August

Now reporting: Here are some of the latest drugstore products I've picked up and used recently!

I started using Garnier's Oat Delicacy hair care line right when it hit shelves because I was at the point in my hair care routine where I needed a change. Personally, I change up my shampoo and conditioner often depending on what my hair needs throughout the year. But I keep going back to this line because I've never had a shampoo/conditioner leave my hair looking so soft and healthy! It's gentle on my locks and I'm obsessed with the results; my hair looks nourished, less frizzy and is much easier to style. I recently also picked up the Garnier Whole Blends Oat Delicacy Detangling Hair Milk, which I just spritz in my damp hair after showering and brush it through. This also has made my hair easier to style and free of tangles. The whole line is affordable and available at Target or your local drugstore!

Cost: $3 - $6
Recommendation: 10/10

COVERGIRL makes my favorite mascaras, hands down. Up until this point, I've been using their Plumpify BlastPro mascara. When they release a new one, I'm always game to try it out, so I picked up the new Flourish mascara at Target. Coconut, avocado and papaya oils are among some of the ingredients in the formula, so I was sold from the start. The reason I love COVERGIRL mascara so much is because it's not very liquidy, but still leaves lashes looking long and vibrant. The formula of Flourish is a little more liquidy than I prefer, but it's definitely manageable. I do use an eyelash brush after applying though to get rid of any clumps or flakes. The mascara does make my lashes long and sexy, but I've been using this more as a "night out" mascara versus a day to day one. I still prefer my Plumpify.

Cost: $7
Recommendation: 7/10

Soap & Glory makes some of the coolest products. A few of my favorites include their Hand Food cream and Breakfast Scrub. I saw the bottle of Heel Genius Foot Cream at Walgreens and was immediately interested because my heels get ROUGH in the summer. I'm always barefoot so they take quite a beating. Besides the occasional pedicure, my feet aren't always feeling the love, so I decided to try this product in hopes that it will cure the dryness. I am a couple days into using it and my feet DEFINITELY feel smoother! I put it on at night after I shower and throw some socks on so it can work its magic while I sleep. Besides the strange blue color of the cream, I am liking this product and the results so far!

Cost: $10
Recommendation: 9/10

Just like I love COVERGIRL mascara, I LOVE Maybelline eyeshadow. Their "Nudes" palettes are always my go-to. The new Lemonade Craze palette was a little out of my comfort zone when it comes to eyeshadow colors, but the more I looked at it, the more I wanted to play with it! I finally caved and picked it up during a Target run. The shadows in this palette are much more powdery than the Nudes palettes, which was a bit of a turn off for me right away; I HATE when loose powder falls on my lashes. Although I can't see myself using all of the colors, especially the yellows, I do like the shades Sweet Tea and Berry Ice. I've swatched the colors below and also created a "pink lemonade" look using the shades Berry Ice and Pink Lemonade on my lids, and I added the shade Ice Pop to my bottom water line. (I'm also wearing COVERGIRL Flourish mascara for an example!) Although this palette was fun to experiment with, I think I'll stick to the Nudes palettes. 

Cost: $10
Recommendation: 6/10
