Welcome to my very first favorites. Not sure why it took me so long to do this, but here we are. I haven't purchased all these recently, but these all products that have gotten lots of love from me this past month. No real theme, just a mix of hair, skin, fragrance and makeup products. June Favorites after the break!

SheaMoisture Superfruit Multi-Vitamin Leave-In or Rinse Out Conditioner

This leave-in conditioner has changed my hair. No seriously. I've been natural for over a year and a half and I've never defined curls all over my until I started using this conditioner. I bought it because I like the scent of the other superfruit products and now my hair is very happy! My twistouts have been on fleek all month.

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Hand & Body Scrub

Likewise, I bought this sugar scrub because it smells so good! But besides just the smell, it exfoliates and moisturizes the entire body. I use it after I shave and before events for a smooth, soft, fragranced skin. And the scent actually mixes well with my next favorite.

YSL Black Opium Eau de Parfum

I plotted on this fragrance for months. And I am not disappointed. It's a bit of a different scent for me. I tend to go for warmer, citrusy scents like Coco Mademoiselle or Giorgio Armani Si but I wanted something a little darker and sexier for night. Black opium is still a feminine scent but with a kick of spiciness. It was supposed to just be a nighttime scent, but since it blends so well with my lotion (you guessed it, Sheamoisture's superfruit) lotion, I've been wearing it day and night.

NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

New holy grail product here. I basically wear this every day now. This setting spray lasted through many a rooftop day party and even the Beyonce concert. So in my mind, this product was recommended by Beyonce herself. I spray this on before I do my makeup to create a matte base and afterward to set and mattify it again. #OilyGirlLife

I was gifted this product about two years about, and used it a bit. But with the trends focused heavy on highlighting, I've been getting ALOT more use of this liquid highlighter. I can wear it alone for a dewy look or layer a powder over it for more dramatic look. It's also a great product to use on the body for extra glow for the summer. I use Topaz, but it comes in a variety of shades including the cult favorite Champagne Pop.

Have you used any of the above products? What have you been loving this past month?
