Wow Beauty’s Star Picks – August 2018

It’s that time of the month again and there are so many amazing products out there! Here’s a little sneak peek into what we’ve been loving in the month and what you might be seeing in upcoming reviews. These may not all be new products, but they’re usually new to us and we’ve been loving them. These are our Star Picks for August!

Naturally Tribal – AYA Body Food

We love shea butter products and were excited to discover this brand Naturally Tribal whose products are based on shea butter, coconut and West African Kola nut. This IYA Body Food is nourishing and deeply moisturising thanks to the high levels of shea butter, it leaves your skin looking and feeling soft, moist and lightly scented of bergamot.

Vanderohe – Body Serum

This is no ordinary body oil – it is more of a body elixir, a blend of body oil and body serum. This sinks into the skin with such ease-one minute it’s there and then voilà- it’s disappeared and you’re left with silky soft, scented skin. Seriously this formulation leaves my skin feeling moist, nourished and just lush after application. Absolutely gorgeous. In fact, we’ve been loving it so much it already has a review this month! Check it out here.

Cantu – Leave-in Conditioning Cream

Jessica has curly hair, so so she’s always looking for products to protect and enhance her curls. Here are her thoughts on this leave-in conditioner: This cream does both – curls and enhances! It is also a product that my mum, who is a hairdresser, swears by! It smells lovely, it’s a thick cream that actually feels light when you apply it to the hair so it can be used as a leave-in product, as opposed to a hair mask. It contains pure shea butter and other natural oils to stop and mend breakage, repair split ends, and add manageability and shine and makes my hair feel absolutely lovely.

Fresh –  Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water Skin Nutrition Face Mist

A mist is something that I have recently grown to really love. Sometimes you just want to give your skin a boost of hydration throughout the day without having to apply a cream, which can feel a little heavier or can’t be applied on top of makeup. I find that a perfect as a pick-me-up – either to cool you down or just to give you a bit of lift – and make you look revitalised. This mist from Fresh Cosmetics caught my attention as it’s no ordinary mist… it’s PACKED with antioxidants to really give your skin a rush of nutrition. 

Spectrum Brushes – Perfect Blend Set

Now… I admit…I was seduced by the beauty of these brushes online. It’s why they came to my attention at first, but after purchasing them I have to say that the quality of the brushes is what’s kept me using them. They’re synthetic and dense and work beautifully to blend out eyeshadow. This collection also gives you a great variety – it covers all bases for the eyes. I’m not a make-up artist like Denise, but I do say… these brushes are rocking my world right now.

Alpha H Multi Vitamin Super Cream

Who doesn’t love the idea of a multi-vitamin for the face? Well that’s exactly what Alpha H have done with this new launch. This lush cream is designed to protect your skin from oxidants and boost cellular function… review coming soon!
