By popular demand, I decided to bring back my monthly favorites series. I kind of missed these posts too, because it really helps me look back at the month and what kind of products I obsessed over. One thing I want to change is to keep it to five or less. That way, I can focus more on explaining about each product in detail.

As you can see below, I made a YouTube channel and here’s my first video! For my readers, I will still list everything below this video 🙂

Ole Henriksen Transform Plus Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum
I can not stop talking about this serum and if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve used this EVERYDAY in September and have raved about it in my stories and posts. I’m pretty sure Ole Henriksen is annoyed with all my mentions 🙂 I love the purple color of this serum that comes from natural retinol alternative ingredient called bakuciol. It’s an amazing day serum, but you have to make sure to wear sunscreen!

AGE 20’s Essence Cover Pact RX SPF 50+/PA+++ Shade No.23
My bestie gifted this to me and I’ve been obsessed using it all throughout September. This is my first time trying any product like this- I’m usually a cushion user or I go for tinted moisturizers, bb creams, and cc creams. However, this “cover pact” has surprisingly been amazing and so easy to use as well. The coverage is great yet light and doesn’t clog my pores. I also love the white part (watch in video) which represents the essence, because it keeps it hydrating.

Black Studded Platform Sandals
These shoes have been with me everywhere in New York! These sandals have a decent amount of elevation to make my calves look thinner (all about that, you know) and it’s so light as well. I also LOVE the velcro option with these sandals!

I’ve been seeing a dietitian each month and she recommended this app to me. I usually bring homemade lunches to eat at work because eating out less is kind of the goal, but I haven’t been good at it when it comes to dinners and weekends. I love that this app has so many recipes to offer and goes as specific as filtering out vegetarian options, “no onion” options, a quick and easy option, etc. This app is available on both iOS and Android!

I mentioned that there were only 5-6 flavors but they came out with way more now- there are a total of 14 different flavors. My favorites are the Reishi Chocolate and Matcha Latte. Love that these drinks are organic, dairy-free, soy-free, and a healthy drink to squeeze in throughout the day. I stock up on these drinks because they often have sales and having a Whole Foods in front of my office doesn’t help at all 🙂

That wraps up my five favorites from September! Planning on posting a lot more skincare and travel content on my YouTube channel as well, so please subscribe if you have not yet and tag along. As always, thank you for reading!
