As beauty editors, we’re always discovering and trying out fun, new products. While not every hair oil, lipstick, or serum becomes a favorite, the ones that do definitely deserved to be shared with our fellow hair and beauty lovers (i.e. YOU!).
Each month, we highlight the products that our editors can’t and won’t stop talking about. Below, see their top picks for the month of August!
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum
“I’ve been wanting to try one of the Gucci perfumes for a while now, so I was really excited to receive a sample of this perfume with a recent Sephora order. It has quickly become one of my go-to scents for this season because I just can’t get enough of its sweet, floral fragrance. It has notes of pear, gardenia, and brown sugar which blend seamlessly to make what I think is the perfect spring and summertime scent. It’s light, feminine, and really lingers on your body. Once I run out of my sample, I definitely plan on buying a full-size bottle.” —Camille Nzengung, hair features editor
EOS Strawberry Peach Stick Lip Balm
“I recently moved to the desert and this EOS lip balm has been a lifesaver for my lips to stay hydrated and smooth. I love how easily it glides on and stays for long periods of time. I can feel my lips splitting and one swipe of this helps to heal them right up. It’s a huge plus that it is gluten-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic! I thought I would HATE the Strawberry Peach flavor but I have grown more accustomed to it. Might change up the flavor next time I buy, but I highly recommend it.” —Madeline Hickey, Digital Media Producer
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt
“For someone who wears protective hairstyles most months of the year, I dread the days of taking the hair out and trying to remove all the buildup. Christophe Robin’s Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is a life and time saver. My scalp feels clean after one time using it, cutting down my wash day by a lot. My only con is that the scrub is thick and messy. It will get everywhere, and beware of the salt hitting your eyes!”—Brittny Pierre, Social Media Editor
e.l.f Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow
“A few weeks ago, I had the urge to spice up my usual makeup routine for a friend’s birthday dinner. I stopped by Target on the way home from work with pretty low standards when I took a chance on this $6 e.l.f liquid eyeshadow. Since then, I have been hooked, and have gotten my roommates addicted as well. It applies easily and leaves you with fun and pigmented sparkles for hours!”—Manon Bushong, Editorial Intern
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones
“This lifestyle recommendation is my absolute LIFESAVER—I have had these headphones for almost 4 years and they are still in great condition. They charge super fast and last for so many hours. Not only are they wireless, but they also come with a wire that you can use for emergencies. The app is fantastic and there are so many different settings you can use. While living in a house with other people, these headphones allow me to focus without miscellaneous noises while not annoying those around me. 10/10 must buy!”—M.H.
