The One with the September 2017 Favourites

There’s a saying “better late than never” and praise the person who came up with it because it’s my motto in life, apparently! Not that I like being late – it just happens. 😛

Anyway, here is my September Favourites post finally! When I first started thinking about what I loved using last month, I didn’t think I’d be able to come up with much. As soon as I started brainstorming, it all came to me really quickly! I didn’t realize I was enjoying so many new items but I did!

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray

I got this in my Spring FabFitFun box but I didn’t start using it until last month. I’m absolutely loving it! I figured I would love it initially but then I read a couple bad reviews that said it dried out their hair so I was hesitant to use it. It turns out that it works great for me!

I only wash my hair every 3 days or so and this has been keeping it sleek and soft. It hydrates my hair and I don’t feel like my hair is weighed down by this product. It also doesn’t make my hair oilier any faster than without it which is usually a concern of mine. It’s a heat protectant as well which is great for when I straighten my hair!

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara

This is another product that I thought I was going to dislike! I was so wrong! It just goes to show how subjective mascara can be for every individual person. Once again, I read that someone didn’t like it so I thought I wouldn’t. Good thing I give these products a chance anyway!

The reason I am loving this mascara lately is because in September, and maybe even starting in August, I noticed that my lashes were getting really bad. One side was all right but the other side was stubby and patchy. I felt like I was losing a lot of lashes so almost every mascara I was using was making my lashes look as short as they felt.

This one gave me instant length! I still remember the first time last month that I applied it and I could hear the angels singing while the clouds parted! I had lashes again! Hallelujah! The first couple applications I was only getting length but now I find I’m able to work the brush to get some fullness going.

This mascara is supposed to hold a curl and for me, it does. But I just want to point out that my lashes tend to stay curled with most mascaras. I know some people have very stubborn lashes so I can’t vouch if it has that kind of curling powers or not!

I find this mascara leaves a few flakes unfortunately and sometimes I notice a small amount of transfer on my outer left corner (I think this is my more watery eye) but because it has been giving me the length I’ve been craving, I can look past that for now. Also, it does not say it is waterproof but it’s difficult to remove without a waterproof makeup remover.

Vichy Minéral 89 Fortifying and Plumping Daily Booster

I realized that the name of this product is different almost everywhere I look! On my bottle, it says “fortifying and plumping daily booster” but on the box it came in, it says “fortifying and hydrating daily booster.” It’s also called “Fortifying Daily Skin Booster” on the pictures of the bottle on the Vichy.ca website so I’m not sure what the official name is. I guess the one thing Vichy could agree on was “fortifying.”

I instantly fell in love with this product. Even on the first day I used it, my skin felt hydrated and that was before I put on any serums or moisturizers! I also noticed my complexion to look so even. This has become a fast staple in my skincare routine.

It has a gel texture that sinks into the skin almost immediately. It doesn’t leave any weird residue or tackiness. It is designed to strengthen and hydrate the skin with natural origin Hyaluronic Acid and make it resistant to signs of aging. 100% recommend this!

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuaçu Lip Butter

I thought this was going to smell like the incomparable Bum Bum Cream but sadly, it does not. At first I was a little disappointed! But when I got past that, I really enjoyed the sweet caramel scent.

Not only does it smell great, it leaves my lips soft and hydrated! Probably because of the cupuaçu butter and coconut oil! And it hasn’t given me a rash which some lip balms do. The only negative thing I can say about this is that the packaging is way too large. This is my at-home only lip balm because I’m not about to tote around this giant thing!

Etude House My Lash Serum

I debated including this or not. I got it the last week of September but I think it made enough of a first impression on me that I should include it. As I mentioned, I’ve been struggling with my lashes lately. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or what but a few days after using this, I was noticing a difference in my lashes and the improvement has continued into October.

What I have noticed is less loss of eyelashes and less patchiness also. This serum is supposed to strengthen and nourish the lashes so I think it is helping with my problem. This product does claim to make your lashes less prone to shedding so I think it’s working! I’m very happy my lashes are looking better lately!

I also thought it would be fun to include some miscellaneous favourites to these posts!

Miscellaneous Faves

Song: Right now I have been loving “Havana” by Camila Cabello! It’s so catchy and I love the Latin vibes of the song. The trumpet is amazing too. Definitely check it out!

TV Show: So I’ve always been a fan of Pretty Little Liars but I stopped watching during season 6. I finally started getting back into it and decided to finish season 6 and now I’m working on season 7. I’m almost done but don’t spoil it for me! 😉 Let me know if you’ve watched!!

And that’s all for my September favourites! These are such fun posts to write! I love talking about the products I love rather than ones I dislike. So much more fun! 😉

Do we have any of the same favourites?! What were your favourites this month?!

  1. I just got introduced to Briogeo b through my boxycharm and love it! I’m so interested to try more items.

    That lip butter sounds really good. I love the smell of the bum bum cream so I’m sure the caramel is just as delicious!


  2. Oh yes I love that etude house las serum ❤ I really feel like it strengthens my lashes, and there's less shedding, and I even saw a slight difference in the length of my lashes 😀 I just recently bought a second one.


    1. I’ve definitely seen less shedding since I started using it and I used to lose a lot of lashes. I think mine are longer too but I’m not sure if they’re just growing back better or what haha. I’m glad I bought it!


  3. I should definitely order that Etude House Lash Serum!! I’ve been losing so much lashes lately. Probably because I need to get a new lash curler, but it hugs my eye shape so well!!! I love that Havana song! xoxo Sarah
