On My Vanity: July

It’s that special time of month again! Let’s talk the star products that are taking up some well-deserved space on my vanity this July.

This month’s roundup has a haircare hero, a new nude lip favorite and a natural product that will grow your lashes and brows without irritation.


VOLO Beauty Hero Quick-Dry Hair Towel

Stop Breaking Your Hair Before You Style It!

You’ve probably heard this before, but if not, let me be the one to tell you: Your hair is most prone to damage when it’s wet.

No matter how many times a week you wash and style (I’m currently at either 2 or 3 washes weekly), chances are you’re rough drying your hair with a towel. That’s when you take a towel and rub it around to get the bulk of the moisture out before you dry and style it.

Well let me be the one to say, don’t do that anymore. You’re breaking your hair. But if you insist, use this towel instead. It’s made of super soft microfiber that’s gentler on your hair. And moreover, the company says can decrease your drying time by up to 50%.

And unlike other dedicated hair towels that can feel small for longer lengths, this one is big–like it’s the size of a regular small towel–which means it’s big enough to comfortably envelop even long hair like mine.

Flip over, twist up and then tuck the end into the handy-dandy little elastic thingy at the base of the towel. (Yes, “handy dandy little elastic thingy” is a technical explanation.)


Briogeo 100% Organic Pressed Castor Oil

Grow Your Lashes and Brows without Irritation

I’ve been shouting from the rooftops about this, because it’s working for me big time on both my brows and lashes. It even helps regrowth in those weird little bald spots in your brows that I promise you have if you’re a child of the 90s. *raises both hands.*

Here’s how to use it:

  • Squeeze a drop onto the back of your hand.
  • Run a spoolie through it. (You can get 100 of them from Amazon for under five bucks right HERE.)
  • Drag spoolie from the inside part of your brows through the arch.
  • Reapply castor oil and use it on your lashes next. Make sure to wiggle it at the base of your lashes then drag it up through them. The castor oil will not only help with growth but will also help condition the lashes you already have.


Kopari Lip Glossy in Birthday Suit

The Perfect Glossy Nude Lip

I’ve always got a few glosses kicking around in my purse, but I’ve been reaching for this one more frequently than the others lately.

It’s got a super cushiony feel and gives the most natural of nude wash to your lips. The perfect laid-back lip look for summer.



That’s what’s on my vanity this July! Drop any other beauty products you’re loving below! I’d love to hear about them!
