Our July Favorites: The Best Products We Tried This Month

Betches may receive a portion of revenue if you click a link and purchase a product or service. The links are independently placed and do not influence editorial content.

And just like that, another month of 2023 is in the books. It’s hard to believe that in the last 31 days alone Barbenheimer premiered, girl dinner was invented, and X is now formally known as Twitter. It’s as if Christmas in July were a real thing, and instead of presents, we’re all just getting new trends, viral makeup, and entertainment in the TikTok algo thrown at us, and TBH, it’s pretty confusing.

But, something that’s not confusing? The fact that all of your favorite Betches love to shop (TikTok trend or not). So, we tried and tested a bunch of new products this month so you don’t have to—you’re welcome. To keep things clear and to cut through the chronic consumerism clutter, we’re only sharing the best of the best. No gatekeeping between friends, bible!

Moisturized AF

Veronica, associate e-commerce manager,  said that this duo was a legit life-saver on her most recent OOO stint. It kept her skin super moisturized and soft even after a full day in the sun on vacation.

La Roche-Posay Lipikar Triple Repair Moisturizing Cream

Glow Getter

Betches Founder, Jordana, says she’s completely hooked on this viral foundation and it’s 100p worth the price tag. Honestly, who wouldn’t be with an award-winning product that promises a glowy yet natural finish?

Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation

Sniff This

“I’m newly completely obsessed with this scent,” says Maddy, senior lifestyle content manager, of the newest (and limited-edition) scent from Snif. It’s quite literally the sweet smell of nostalgia with hints of cherry, vanilla, and mimosa.

Tart Deco Limited Edition Fragrance

My Milk Vegan Protein Shake Brings All The Boys To The Yard

Divya, account manager at Betches, says that these are her all-time fave protein shakes. They’re perfect for on-the-go, after a workout, or, honestly, whenever you’re feeling in need of a little extra something. With 20g of plant-based protein, you can’t really beat it. BTW: The coffee flavor is elite.

The Ultimate Hot Girl Walk

I personally bought myself one of these at the start of the month to see if it would help make me feel a little less “meh” when working (aka sitting) for hours on end. Can confirm that it’s probably the best purchase I’ve ever made for myself and my health. I get a solid 10K steps now without even trying and it makes me feel slightly less anxious on a daily basis since I’m constantly moving. Totally worth skipping out on weekend plans to afford it.

Yes, Being A Glazed Donut Is A Good Thing

“I’m obsessed with this stuff! It’s so hydrating—especially after being out in the hot summer sun—and it leaves your skin with a super glowy finish,” says Andrea, our affiliate writer, who was bragging to me about this stuff after I complimented how amazing her skin looked on a Zoom call.

You Think You’re So Slick

Remi, a marketing intern, has sworn by this hair wax stick.”As a girl who gets greasy hair so easily, I can just use this and effortlessly have fashionable hairstyles instead of showering a million times,” she says. So when you need to tame a few fly aways, try this. It takes less than five seconds.

Slightly Shady

Maria, our branded and affiliate content director, has literally been humble-bragging about this hat all week. She was able to pack it into her bag for a week at the shore without a care in the world about it getting ruined. Plus, it’s cute AF and who doesn’t want to look slightly more put together when sunbathing?

Lip Service

I was chatting to Izzy, Gen Z content associate, about what makeup she likes to wear in the summer when she promptly said, “When I want to feel girlie pop without doing anything to my face at all, I pull out my trusty lip soother.” And let me tell you, this shit is the best for a little summer color.
