Hey guy! Hope you are doing well! I got such a good response for my July monthly favorites that I had to continue this series. So today I will be sharing my best and most favorite products of August 2020 which mainly includes skincare ones. Now, I have been using them for the past 1-2 months and they have really given me great results. The best part of these products is they are really affordable and hence you’re gonna love them completely.
So without any further ado let’s get started!
1) Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser -
So my first product is the Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser, Saffron, and Neem. I have always wanted to try the forest essentials as they are an extremely hyped brand for their natural ingredients. Now I did not want to spend too much money initially. So, I went and purchased the smallest version of the face cleanser from their range.
I went for the Kashmiri saffron and neem face wash ( 50ml) as it was meant for oily skin types. And OMG! I was shocked to see how it not only cleansed my face thoroughly but also removed my every single bit of makeup completely! It lather’s pretty well and doesn't extremely dry out your skin. Just a tiny amount of the product would be more than enough to show the best results.
To my surprise, it even helped in dealing with my acne and pimples to a very great extent.
I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with oily and slightly acne or pimple prone skin. This is definitely a must-try product.

2) Dot n Key Green Clay Mask -
My next favorite is a face pack. This is from a new brand called the Dot n Key which I hadn’t tried out in the past. So my first purchase from their collection was the Dot n Key Pollution + acne defense green clay mask.
This mask really helps in tightening your pores and also in fighting against the acne and pimples. It also deeply purifies your face without stripping the natural oil from it. I have already posted a complete review of this product! You can definitely check that out by clicking here.
I am really satisfied with this product and am really looking forward to trying out something new from their brand.

3) Good Vibes Rosehip Serum -
Good vibes as a brand have become quite popular in a very short span of time. Their products have good reviews and are also really affordable. Their rosehip serum was or rather still is a very famous or hyped product as it actually showed some unbelievable results for people who used it.
So, after reading such good comments and reviews I was really curious to try it out and from the past 2 months, I have been using this in my nighttime routine before going to bed. I have to admit that this is actually as good as it claims to be. It makes your skin texture even, reduces blemishes or dark spots, and gives a subtle glow to your skin. This is completely suitable for oily as well as other skin types.
It just retails for ₹339 for 30ml and easily lasts for 1-2 months! If you are someone who wants to get rid of the uneven skin tone and at the same time attain a smooth and healthy skin, then this one's for you.

4) Mamaearth Skin Plump Face Serum -
After using the Mamaearth vitamin C serum I was quite impressed with this brand and actually wanted to try out their few other products. That’s when I came across the skin plump serum. At first,I was a bit afraid to test this out as it had both good and bad reviews. But then one day when I saw it at a huge discounted price, I thought I should give it a try and hence went ahead and purchased it right away.
I use this in my night-time skincare routine along with the rosehip serum ( mentioned above) and Mamaearth’s vitamin c skin illuminating serum. The combination of all these three has actually given me great results. It surely has improved my skin texture and the overall appearance of my face. I do see a subtle glow and my skin feels soft and plump.
But when I used this serum alone during day time, it made my skin feel sticky which I didn’t like much. And also I got 1 or 2 pimples after using it for 3-4 days during the daytime. That’s when I stopped applying it in my daytime routine and continued using it only before going to bed.
Overall the product definitely showed me visible results after using it regularly for a week. Hence I would suggest that you guys can surely try it out if you wish to improve your skin’s overall appearance and texture. For extremely dry skin people I wouldn’t recommend it at all.

5) Swiss Beauty Eyeshadow Palette -
Eyeshadows are a versatile product. One good eyeshadow can actually be used to provide you the complete makeup look right from your eyes to even a highlighter. I have already posted an IGTV video (link given below) on how I used one single palette to create my complete makeup look.

Swiss beauty is one such drug store brand that provides you with highly pigmented eyeshadows that have a long-lasting formula. It’s such an affordable brand that you can simply invest in it without any second thoughts. I purchased their mini eyeshadow palette which is a tiny little travel-friendly palette but does the complete job. It comes in various shade ranges but I chose the shade 02. It has good pigmentation and also the colors in it can be used to create festive as well as casual or formal makeup look.
If you are a beginner in makeup or else want an eyeshadow that can be used to flatter your complete look, then this one is a must buy. This will just complete your makeup kit without creating a hole in your pocket.

6) Favorite Dish -
My August favorite dish has to be the mutton curry which I prepared. This dish is very close to my heart as it actually turned out to be super delicious in the first place. I have already posted the recipe for it. Click here to check it out.
This recipe is really super simple and even beginners can prepare it easily. So definitely try that out and let me know how it turned out for you. I will also be posting a full IGTV video so do follow me on my Instagram page the_fab_flip.
So I hope these short reviews and my experiences on the above-mentioned products help you in knowing the products more in detail. Also, every skin type is different and hence I would always recommend doing a patch test before using it on your skin. Also, let me know if you need a detailed review of any particular product which has been in your wishlist for a long time. I would love to do that!
