July Favs & Fails – Best in Beauty Over 50

Here’s the latest round of Favs & Fails for us over 50 gals with mature skin!

I’m breaking down what I really loved this month and the products that were a major disappointment. You’ll see makeup, haircare, skincare and a new lifestyle favorite.

Join me for some interesting finds that I think you’ll want to see.

Some of My Favs:

This Chico’s Ikat Print V-Neck Tee has been one of my favorite summer tops this month.

It takes the concept of T-shirt and levels it up in so many ways.

The fit is flattering and I appreciate the ample bust area that doesn’t cling too much. It was a favorite for my travels as it packed so well.

Just checked and it’s currently on sale!

During my travels this month the Give It to Me Straight palette from Colourpop was the only eyeshadow I packed.

It did a great job of offering me everything I needed to go from an easy, everyday look to a more dramatic eye.

The formula is classic Colourpop – blends easily with great pigment. This palette remains one of my all-time favorites from Colourpop.

The Loreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation continues to be my go-to favorite. It was the one I packed for my travels and it didn’t disappoint.

This foundation always goes on easily and is fuss free – something that is really important to me.

I find it flatters my mature skin and doesn’t make my wrinkles look worse! Two thumbs up!

Think of the Alpha Renewal Body Lotion as an exfoliator for your body.

Formulated with AHA Acid, it gently exfoliates and moisturizes all those wobbly bits and dry parts.

It does a great job of softening my skin and creating a bit of a firmer appearance. This lotion is a girl’s summer time friend!

I keep looking for something better, but the Kenra Volume Spray 25 is still my holy grail hairspray!

This formula offers hold and body without the stiff and sticky residue I get from so many other brands.

This has been my go-to hairspray for over 20 years now. I’ll keep looking for an alternative, but for now, this is the best there is for me!

The is my new passionate love for this month.

But beware — if you try them, you may never want to go back to cotton pillowcases again! I know I’m ruined for life.

The luxuriousness of the silk, combined with the fact that my skincare doesn’t soak into the fabric, make this one of my best finds for 2020. (and finding something good about 2020 is a real feat – ha!)

I love the feel of these cases and am a real ” convert. (I also have a from this brand that is wonderful.)
