June Favorites

A variety of things that I've been obsessing over in the month of June.

The first item in my monthly favorites may look familiar since I briefly spoke about it on my summer essentials post. I've switched over to cruelty-free products as you all would know by now. I've been wanting to change my deodorant from harmful ones that contain aluminum to something that is good for you. I've been using the Tarte Clean Queen deodorant all month and I'm so pleased with it. I'm the person who sweats a lot and I have never found a deodorant that controls that until now. Clean Queen is a natural deodorant that helps keep you dry and a long lasting odor defense. It is aluminum free and contains soothing aloe that cools and conditions to avoid any irritation. On Sephora it states that this smells of sweet vanilla, however, I don't think it smells of vanilla at all. I find that it smells very fresh, clean and even a light hint of lemon. I could be completely off, haha but that is what I get whenever I smell this. I love the packaging and that it is also a solid deodorant. I hate liquid deodorants! This applies very smooth and I haven't noticed if it leaves any streaks on my clothes... Any who this stuff is amazing definitely check it out!

As far as I can remember I was never a fan of any lavender scents and it wasn't until I fell in love with Lush's Twilight bath bomb that I realized I was slowly enjoying lavender. I love candles and Bath & Body Works recently had their semi-annual sale. I wasn't planning on purchasing anything besides a few candles since the last time I bought a candle was back in November, maybe October. Online I saw a few that sounded so nice and when I finally found them in the store I was so ecstatic. I saw this French Lavender candle and before I never liked the way lavender candles smelled but since I enjoying lavender a lot more I thought I'd smell it to give it a shot. When I smelled the candle I immediately thought of Twilight bath bomb! It smells identical to it even Rudy agreed, we both fell in love with it. French Lavender contains vanilla a scent I don't normally like but personally, I can't smell the vanilla in the candle. It also contains lavender and soft jasmine. I have been burning this candle all month, mainly in the afternoon, and it's so calming. I picked up two lavender candles and I plan on picking up some more, hopefully before they run out.

For a long time, I've been wanting to try the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask. A couple of friends of mine use and love it along with ladies I watch on Youtube. This mask claims to be 'world's most powerful facial' and that it is a deep pore cleaner. Whenever I'm shopping for groceries at Whole Foods I always forget to look for this and one day I so happened to bump into it. This is a powder mask and you mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar (or water) until it forms into a paste consistency. It recommends the apple cider vinegar because it mixes better with the product and it's also really good for the skin. I leave this mask on for about 15 minutes. On the tub itself, it states 'feel your face pulsate' and I was a little worried about this at first. I didn't want it to hurt my skin or burn it. After a few mins when the mask begins to dry and feels tight that is when you literally feel your skin pulsate. It's so crazy and it doesn't hurt at all if anything I quite enjoy it because it makes me feel like it's definitely working. I've been using it twice a week and I find that it's really helped my skin. It's cleared blemishes that I had and my pores on my nose which is the largest have cleared up by a ton! I used to always use the Origins 10 min out of trouble mask. Since that ran out I picked up the Aztec mask and it's replaced it. The tub is huge so I know it's going to last me a really long and it only cost me $7.

You guys will be surprised that a mascara actually made into my favorites. I don't have an all-time favorite mascara. My lashes are fairly small and short, and no matter what mascara I use they never look long or full. False lashes are usually my bestie! I own a crap ton of mascaras thanks to subscription boxes so I pretty much set for a really long time. I have been using the BUXOM Lash mascara for about two months now and I'm not sure if all of a sudden I'm doing something different like applying it differently... Maybe my lashes even grew... but it wasn't until this month that I noticed how amazing the mascara has made my lashes look. I see such a huge difference in length! You know this mascara must be made of some good sh*t if I'm including it in my favorites. Mascaras don't usually stand out to me and this one definitely does! This mascara claims to be an intensely volumizing mascara for bigger fuller lashes and doesn't clump up when I go in with a second or third coat. One last thing, I'm pretty sure this mascara is also what has helped keep my eyelash curled all day.
Rudy surprised me a couple of weeks ago with the Bob's Burgers soundtrack vinyl! I was very shocked when the mailman delivered this to me since I wasn't expecting anything in the mail. Once I opened up the package and saw what it was I was so excited, literally jumping up and down with joy!  I love the Bob's Burgers tv show it is so funny and I also enjoy the music. They're so funny and catchy. When I found out they were releasing a soundtrack I knew I needed to own it. I even kept telling Rudy that I wanted to own the vinyl once it was released. Since owning it I've been trying to listen to it as often as I can. Rudy and I have really been enjoying it. The soundtrack contains 107 songs (all the songs from the first six seasons.), some are fairly short but still good if you ask me. I love how every once in a while in the album the characters from the show talk it's just so much fun. If you're a fan of the show this soundtrack is a must!

Did any good items make it into your favorites this month?


  1. I'm obsessed with that Bobs burgers soundtrack. I saw it at Target the other day and went back the rolling day to pick it up. You have good choice in tv shows.

    1. It's so good I know a lot of friends purchased the cd too. Its totally worth it ;)

  2. I would love to try the Tarte deodorant. Great post!
