June Favorites! (WARNING: PIC HEAVY)

Hi ladies! So I decided to start doing a monthly favorites post at the beginning of each month about the month before. I got the idea from my lovely friend Jess over at Love For Lacquer which she started doing a few months back. I have a ton of products all the time that I wish I could share with everyone so I think this is the perfect way to start doing that!

Sneak peek pic I took with my Instagram! Feel free to follow me -- kdouce0218 :)

Let's get started!

Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + BalmFirst up, one of my FAVORITE go-to products. Seriously everyone, I'm not kidding you when I say that this is the ONLY product that has completely erased my cuticles and left them feeling moisturized and soft. It's got a light, cucumber-y scent that I love because it's not overpowering at all. All you have to do is massage a little bit into your cuticles each day to get super soft cuticles. Perfect to throw in your purse for when you're on the go!
AvailabilityDrugstores - I picked mine up at Target for about $7.

Crack Hair Fix - One of my all time favorite beauty products. In Florida, we've got super hot and humid summer days and nights which can totally ruin my hair. For years I've been looking for a good product to tame frizz and protect from heat without weighing my hair down without success. Crack has solved all of my problems! I'll be posting a better review about this later this week so stay tuned! You'll get to see the face of the blog ;)
Availibilty: Crack can be purchased at Folica for $19.95

Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino - Neroli Portofino captures everything there is to love about summer. Crisp citrus scents with a hint of floral tones just makes me want to lay on a hammock over the water! I received this sample at the Neiman Marcus Blogger Presentation I went to, used it up and went back to buy the full size of the body oil! It's a little pricey, but in my opinion I'd rather spend a few extra bucks on a great perfume that'll last me  awhile.
Availability: You can pick up an 8.5 oz bottle of the body oil at Neiman Marcus for $70

SuperSmile Single Dose Powdered Mouthrinse - These are amazing to have in your purse or your beach bag for after a long day. All you have to do is add a little bit of water to the packet, swish it around, rinse & voila -- fresh breath! Sometimes during the day you might feel you wanna freshen up, but who really carries a toothbrush in their purse? 
Availability: Box of 60 for $29.00 at Neiman Marcus

Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub - After wearing makeup during a long hot, Florida day all I can think about when I get home is washing my face. I got this in my Target Beauty Bag and was super excited. One of the reasons I love this scrub is that the exfoliating beads aren't super large or rough which is great because I have super sensitive skin. It's a really deep cleanse, but a light formula which I didn't think would be the case. It gives my skin a really fresh glow and it smells nice too!
Availability - Target $5.84 for 5 oz

OPI Divine Swine - Gorgeous blend of silver hex glitters in a purpel-y fuschia glitters in a clear base. Check out my post here!
Availability: Authorized OPI retailers $8.00

Pretty & Polished Cheer Camp - One of my favorite polishes of the year which is PERFECT for summer. Chelsea really out did herself with her Summer Camp collection. Pink and purple pastel hex glitters in a milky pink base. One word - GORGEOUS. Check out my post here
Availability: Chelsea's Etsy shop & she will soon be going to Llarowe $8.75 full size/$4.50 mini

Dollish Polish Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Glitter - I'm a huge sucker for minty green polishes, especially ones packed with glitters. I've been dying to get my hands on some Dollish for a long time and I'm happy to finally have with a few more on the way! Check out my post here
Availability: Dollish Polish Big Cartel

Favorite Book: Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy - Best.books.ever. I know there has been a ton of controversy over these books about all the sex and the content of it. But honestly, it's a great, well written books which an out of the box story line that I love. I LOVE a good love story and this take on it is so different which only makes me love it even more.
Availability: $35 for the set of three at Target

Favorite Song(s): 

Lemme See by Usher

I grew up listening to Usher when he was in his prime! And can I just take a break from nails/beauty, that is one FINE piece of man. Moving on, I love the beat to this song & it's great for a night out dancing which I've been doing a lot of this summer.

Red Lipstick - Rihanna

If you know me in real life, you know how obsessed with Rihanna I am. I love EVERYTHING about her. This song's a little older, off her Talk that Talk album but again it's perfect for summer! It's also my ringtone :)
