Trying new beauty products is all in a day’s work for us here at a-beauty. We love putting products through their paces in the name of glowing skin, better hair, fluffier brows, and everything in between. Every now and again there are products that truly impress us and earn themselves a permanent spot in our routines.
In this series we share with you our current beauty obsessions for the month.
It’s great when you find a skincare routine that works. An epic line-up paired with consistent use can work wonders. But sometimes your skin’s needs change. It may be from the weather, your lifestyle, hormones…so many things can mess with your skin. Which is why it’s important to keep an eye on things and adjust your regimen as needed.
That’s exactly what we’re doing here in the a-beauty office this month. Listening to our skin and giving it what it is crying out for.
Here’s what we’re using and loving this month:

MY JULY OBSESSION: Sodashi Brightening Marine Mineral Mask
"I had a few breakouts on my cheeks and they were quite red and inflamed. I decided to use the Sodashi Brightening Marine Mineral Mask and the next day I noticed that my skin seemed a lot calmer and more hydrated, which I'm really happy about. I also loved that the mask dries nicely on my face: it didn't feel tight like most masks do for me."

MY JULY OBSESSION: Beauty Dept Hydrate Essential Oil Face Pads
"This is the one month of year when my skin struggles the most. It just drinks up anything I put on my skin and still feels dry most days. I’m finding my skin is especially struggling after my swim lessons with my little boy. I’ve started popping these beauty wipes in my bag for a quick clean of my skin post-swim to remove all the chlorine and chemicals and to provide a much-needed dose of nourishment following my moisture-stripping dip in the pool. They’re really helping deliver instant hydration to my skin and a lovely makeup-free glow."
Jamee, Founder & Creative Director
MY JULY OBSESSION: Inika Organic Certified Organic Lip Balm
"Obsessed is the perfect title for this segment because I am OBSESSED with the Inika Organic Lip Balm. It’s clear and minty and everything you need for dry, parched winter lips. It's lightweight on the lip and gives you a little sheen so it looks like you’ve got a little something going on. Perfect for those ‘no makeup’ makeup days. Similarly, it's perfect to pop on top of a matte lipstick to keep it looking fresh and hydrated when it's starting to look a little worse for wear after a few hours of drinking and eating.”
MY JULY OBSESSION: Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation
"By this time of year, I usually find myself struggling to stop my foundation from looking cakey underneath my dry skin, but the Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation truly continues to look dewy all day. I've been using the shade Latte, which matches my skin tone better than any product I've used (super pale girls will understand my struggle!). It provides decent coverage while looking incredibly skin-like, making it the perfect foundation for my day-to-day."
