Summer is here and those scary thunder storms have been back keeping us up at all hours of the night! As London gals, Summer is such a beautiful season to be in this big city. With amazing parks, tons of things to do and see or just a drink on the Southbank, it couldn't get any more beautiful. For us two however, lets just say that we have been spending rather a lot of time at home in our back garden, eating too many hot dogs...burgers....ribs with a side salad of course hehe, for us to even get outside and enjoy London. This, we have decided, has got to change! Or we will actually be come obese! So now you have had our rather brief July update (all BBQ related, so apologies if you thought our lives were actually exciting) here's to why you are really here....Our July Beauty Favourites.

Becki: This fantastic Serum from Caudalie, has kept dehydrated skin at bay and blessed me with a plump and healthy face for the Summer. My skin always tends to break out during Summer, whether it's the awful sweating, wild hormones or working too hard,  I have found this S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum c/o to be a good stable element to my skin routine, keeping my skin balanced and hydrated, with not a spot in sight! Read full review HERE.

Jess: Edible and luxurious- Aveeno Positively Nourishing Body Butter. I love a tasty smelling body butter and well this one is to die for! Enriched with Cocoa and Shea Butter, my skin feels instantly nourished every time I use it. As I bought this in New York, I haven't managed to find it over here in the UK but there is a HUGE amount of buzz around this brand at the moment so fingers crossed! Read full review HERE.

Jess: Oh Lordy, another product that I could literally eat. Meet Melvita's ProSun Gradual Self-tanning moisturising gel-cream c/o. As I haven't managed to catch the Summer rays at the moment as I work in an office, I have been Faking it! And trust me nobody would be able to tell thanks to this baby! It is a gradual tanner, so will develop over time but ladies & gents it is worth it. My skin looks and feels healthy and glowing. Read full review HERE.

Becki: On the subject of glowing skin, I had to put this make up must-have in our favourites as literally this is is my favourite make up product for this season. With beautiful illuminating effects, Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal c/o looks gorgeous in the summer to give you a very subtle glow under the sunlight. I use it mainly as a highlighter to catch the sun and make my skin look flawless.

Becki & Jess: Now where would we be without a killer Summer Nail shade! This month our go to shade has been this stunning coral nail varnish from Rimmel London's fab 60 second range. Named rather appropriately 'Instyle Coral', this is our favourite shade to show off our sexy summer tan (yes we have faked it! But who cares hehe). Read full review HERE.

Becki & Jess: Although we weren't sure if this was allowed in a favourites post, as to be honest, it deserves a whole post (coming soon ladies & gents don't panic!) we had to include Latest In Beauty's Ultimate Summer Nail box. In the box are all our favourite nail brands and must-have products all for a bargain price of £15 including p+p! We LOVE it!

Becki & Jess: So before announcing our hero product this month, we couldn't go without giving Melvita's Floral Water's c/o a solid second place (sorry no rosettes here but we would offer one if we had one!). This product has been our heat surviving saviour. With the evil hot and sticky nights at a mere 27 degrees inside our house, these light, hydrating and cooling sprays are a dream! Invest in one now before the sun strikes again! Read full review HERE.

Becki & Jess: Oh, yes our hero product of the month has got to be the one and only Clayspray. We have enjoyed using the Clayspray collection so much, that we actually haven't even written a blog post yet, as we want to keep this brand our little secret hehe! Well of course in the beauty world that will never happen so we have outed ourselves! As you can see above, Becki is modelling Clayspray's Toning White Clay & Aloe Vera c/o masks (in a rather unflattering-do not do this at home pose!). Clayspray just oozes luxury and allows you to have a spa experience in the comfort of your own home.

Hope you have enjoyed reading our July favouirtes! What are yours?

Hugs & Kisses
Becki & Jess
