Another month gone and I am still a crazy mess. Its been one hell of a month for me and I have to say I am kinda happy it's over. Sometimes starting an new month is like turning over a new leaf. I promise to make this month count and start finding happiness again. Along with every new month comes a set of beauty favourites that I have loved using throughout June. For me this was a tough one to narrow down as I seem to be flying through products at the speed of lighting and experimenting with new products and old friends on a daily basis. Maybe it's because I am back home now, I have more time to kill so beauty is my vice.

First up is a newbie in my collection and its a gorgeous natural summery product- Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer (£19.50, 10g) c/o. This bronzer is the perfect amount of shimmer and highlighter that lifts my pale complexion into a summery glow. Sliced into four quarters of multi-tonal palettes, they come together to create the right amount of definition and luminosity to the face. As I am pretty pale most of the year, I like to wear a light dusting of bronzer on my forehead, cheekbones and down to my jaw line in the shape of a '3'. This gives just enough glow where the sun will hit your face. This is limited edition so I'd grab one while you can!

Just two skincare items this month and the first is from La Roche Posay. I had to share with you their Physiological Ultra Fine Scrub (£10.00, 50ml) c/o, as I think it is one of the most gentle scrub I have used in a while that really does scrub well. I know that may be the crappiest way of describing a scrub but you know sometimes your face just needs a good old scrub and this one, does the job without damaging or basically peeling off half your skin layers. I would recommend it for sensitive skin like mine and as the beads are so fine, after I use it, my face feels like a babies bottom. It also always without fail gives me a lovely glow. Nothing better than getting rid of those dead skin cells for a fresh face.

The next skincare item I have enjoyed using is surprisingly Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream (3g sample). Found in the amazing Latest In Beauty Dream Box picked by the lovely British Beauty Blogger, this little mini was really good. As eye creams go, this one is light, refreshing and feels like a dream to use. Having a rough time at the mo, means eye creams and any products that help cover my puffy red eyes, which have been pretty darn sore from lots of crying, this cream helps fade circles and attempt to brighten the eye area. It works ladies! I would definitely buy the full pot of this cream.

One product that sure hasn't left my nails literally this month is Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Colours in Pink in the Park (£4.49, 10ml) c/o. These nail polishes are pretty darn incredible with their stay on power, the way they apply, dry and even down to the colours, they are amazing. I always put nail polish to the test in my job and this one stayed on with hardly no chips for at least a week. I was so shocked that finally a formula of nail polish would do what it says on the tin!

As far as hair goes, I leave my hair to do its own thing. However, as I have ombre hair and there is alot of blonde on my dark roots, it can tend to get a little dry. Until this mask from John Frieda came into my life. Literally say goodbye to horrible dry ends in one go with John Frieda's Full Repair Hydrate + Repair Deep Conditioner (£6.99, 150ml) c/o. I use this once a week (now down to the scrapings of the bottle boohoo!) it lifts my coloured hair, conditions and actually makes my hair shiny, which is a first as normally my hair looks matte and messy. I love the feel of my hair after this treatment and I would recommend everybody to give it a try if you want soft, light and healthy hair.

My final two are handbag must haves. An annoying one for you but I couldn't not drop in, is my new favourite Secret Fragrance from one of our new exclusive Timothy Dunn London candles. I have been wearing this scent literally everyday and I am obsessed. I can reveal its key note is Neroli and it is intoxicating fellow fragrance lovers. I am just sad that in a few months I will have to share it with the rest of the world! Finally is Nivea's Protect & Refresh Cooling Mist 50+ (£16.00, 200ml) c/o which whilst it has been hot on odd days that I get a few hours out of work, I can spray this all over and feel refreshed and protected from the sun. These sprays would be a god send on holiday, if only I was going on one!

What are your favourites this month?
