Posh Beauty Blog’s favorite beauty products and accessories for the month of August
By Carla Snuggs
It’s that time of the month again! Posh Beauty Blog is rounding up faves from the previous month. I am so grateful to be able to have explored and discovered as so many fabulous products as they came across my desk. It was so hard to narrow it down! Here are some of my favorite beauty, health and lifestyle products that were not otherwise featured on the blog.
PoniLox is the perfect way to add a twist to your average ponytail. These beautiful decorative hair combs are now one of my new fave hair accessories. You can easily put your hair into cute messy buns, sleek chignons and braided twists in just three simple steps. PoniLox is great for all hair types and is the only patented French comb featuring a unique pivoting barrette with elastic stretch (instead of damaging metal). The comb follows the curve of the scalp, so it’s super comfy. Best of all, when you take your hair down, there are no creases! Ponilox is a great hair accessory for the holidays!
SOHO Disney Dare to Dream Collection
LONDON SOHO NEW YORK® teamed up with Walgreens to offer another dreamy Disney collection of cosmetic bags featuring Ariel, Mulan and Pocahontas. Available exclusively at Walgreens, the Dare to Dream collection contains six new cosmetic bags, including a weekender, organizer, clutch and round top purse kit. The collection is inspired by the ambitious spirits of these inspiring leading ladies. They’re not just for kids - they’re chic and perfectly playful. They’re also great for kids and teens as a stylish way to stash supplies in a backpack or locker. My favorites are the SOHO Disney Dare to Dream Clutch and the SOHO Disney Dare to Dream Round Top Ariel.
Palais des Thes Gardens Herbal Teas
Palais des Thés is the flavored tea expert! A while back I blogged about Palais des Thes here. Now they’ve crafted new infusions in an original and evocative way, transporting you to its magical gardens. You will love this new collection of unique infusions, Gardens. Each flavor contain generous blends of fruit (in pieces, dried or candied), delicate flowers and aromatic plants. There is no theine or artificial flavorings. And best of all, you can drink them hot or iced. I love best that the ice teas can be steeped in room temperature water. I tried the Gardens Box which includes
Tropical garden ("Jardin tropical"): mango, pineapple & papaya
Hanging garden ("Jardin suspendu"): bergamot, flowers & mango
Fruit garden ("Jardin fruité"): berries, dates & kiwi
Oriental garden ("Jardin oriental"): dates, spices & coconut.
Love them all!
Baobab Fruit Powder
I recenlty learned about Baobab, a superfruit that is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants – perfect for those seeking healthy, glowing skin. Baobab, known as the “Queen of Super fruits”, is an African wild-harvested fruit that is naturally bursting with essential minerals and nutrients. I tried Baobab Foods’ Baobab Fruit Powder and I love it! It has a light, subtly tangy flavor to which I have become addicted. The bonus for me is that it is very low in carbs and is a great way to get superb beauty benefits without sacrificing my way of eating. Baobab promotes collagen production and helps reduce the visible signs of aging. This product is raw, organic, ethically and sustainably harvested, and is an excellent source of fiber.
Skincare and Makeup
PCA SKIN CliniCalm %1
This summer, since I have been showing much more skin than in the spring, I did a lot more waxing, tweezing and shaving which left me susceptible for irritation and razor burn. I highly recommend PCA Skin Clinicalm, a soothing treatment with maximum strength 1% hydrocortisone to soothe and provide temporary relief of itching and irritation. I have really sensitive skin and this really cut down on the redness, inflammation and irritation after my skincare treatments. I will continue to use this to relieve any eczema breakouts I may have this fall.
The summer is not yet over and fall and the holidays are right around the corner. Whether you’re heading to the beach or you’re headed to grandma’s, skyn ICELAND has all complexions covered with skin savers compact enough to throw into any beach bag or carry-on. You’ll stay sweat-free and selfie-ready! Bonus: skyn ICELAND products are all100% vegan, paraben-free and cruelty-free! My favorites are the Glacial Cleansing Cloths with White Willow Bark and Cucumber Extract that help remove make-up, sweat, dirt, and other impurities while simultaneously refreshing skin. I also recommend the Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion with Icelandic Kelp and White Willow Bark. This lotion is great after a day in the sun because it’s really lightweight and has a cooling sensation designed to relieve redness and blemishes. It helps replenish nutrients and oxygen back into skin.
Mally Beauty’s Instant Impact Lipstick Duo.
I love Mally Beauty’s lipsticks because they make your lips feel ultra-moisturized and the colors are both gorgeous and long-lasting. I was able to try Mally Beauty’s Instant Impact Lipstick Duo and I’m obsessed. They contain vitamin E, mango butter and almond oil to hydrate and moisturize your lips. I Love the creamy texture. The high pigment shades make lips look luscious and sleek. The duo includes a bright coral and a neutral nude for great shine and fullness!
Spongellé Wild Flower
I always love promoting fabulous multi-tasking beauty products that save time in the morning. Spongellé infused body buffers are your all-in-one way to create the finest bath and shower experience. Spongelle is infused with exotic extracts, rich moisturizers and gentle cleansers. It’s good for 14 washes because it has a time-released creamy lather. It also exfoliates and polishes! Spongelle is a one-stop product that helps you get soft and sexy skin with key Ingredients extracts of yuzu, edelweiss and vetiver.
Palladio Beauty's FIFTY-FIFTY Dual Liner
Palladio Beauty launched their FIFTY-FIFTY: Cat-Eye Liquid Liner + Smoky Kajal and I have been using it for a few weeks. Okay beauties, you MUST pick up this dual-ended eye styling wonder. The ultra-smooth drama of a Kajal crayon is on one end (and provides all the drama) while you get the precision of a felt-tip liquid liner on the other. With this multi-purpose tool, you can make a variety of smoky or defined looks easily and conveniently. I like to wear them separately as well as layered together.
