JULY & AUGUST FAVOURITES.

Oh hello favourites! I decided to join together a few favourites from the last few months, as you know how busy, hectic and stressful it has been back. I'm not going to lie, beauty has taken a back seat this month and you will know so has blogging but there have been a few newbies again, some genius innovations and some old favourites that have popped up that I have to share with you. To start, I have to express my non-beauty favourite of the month and my unconditional love for Oreos'! Yep, I'm a complete saddo, who couldn't think of anything better than going home, whackin' on The Following and munching on a whole packet of these little biscuits. They have got my through a tough month and yes, they have become an addiction!

Now to beauty. I have been keeping my make up very simple over these hotter few weeks. That means hardly no base but lots of heavy fluttering eye lashes. The only mascara that I have been using is Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (£19.00) which has changed my eye lashes for the better. Found in the incredible Latest in Beauty Dream Box this full sized mascara gets your eye lashes long, thick and blacker than black. Most of all I love the product as it keeps your lashes curled all day without smudging. The wand is best suited for long lashes as its shape curves and lengths your lashes after a few applications. Its expensive but well worth every penny in my eyes, as it feels like a high end product even down to its weighty packaging. So better than sex? I couldn't possibly comment hehe.

My go to nail polish this month has been the beautiful baby blue Rimmel London 60 Second Pillow Talk c/o (£3.60, 8ml). Its not a surprise that I am still in love with pastels for Summer and this colour in particular is such a delicate and pretty hue that goes with what ever clothing I am wearing. It also lasts pretty well and dries so quickly as it's my favourite formula and brush. 

A newbie for me this month is Nivea's Q10 Firming Body Lotion c/o (£3.49, 400ml). This simple yet extremely hydrating body moisturiser has literally been the key into getting the perfect summer bod. I have used this ever single day and I have to say it has kept my skin looking amazing. It's quite a light cream which soaks straight into your skin without any greasy reside or stickiness. My skin since using this moisturiser has become smooth and to say it lightly firm. Although let's not kid ourselves my skin isn't exactly sagging but it has made it look healthy and hydrated. I think this moisturiser is probably for more mature skin but if your after a great light moisturiser, this is your answer.

If your after products to help your skin look fabulous in the sun I can't recommend Soap & Glory's Breakfast Scrub (£8.00, 300ml). This good enough to eat body exfoliator is a must have for any Soap & Glory fan as not only is smelling the best it also gets your skin smoothed and buff. I love to use this scrub once or twice a week all over my body and oh boy if feels good. The scrub itself is a sugar based scrub which means it really does get to work on prepping your skin. Just what you need in summer when you have to get your body out into the open!! Ladies you just have to go try it is all I am going to say. 

My final two or skincare favourites. Firstly is the latest launch from Indeed Labs with their Hydraluron jelly moisturiser c/o (£16.66, 30ml) which if you haven't already read my review from a week or two ago, you need to as it's an amazing product. Read it HERE. Lastly is a product that has become my sleeps best friend. You know it's been hot in London, well sleeping has been a nightmare! Every night I whip out of the fridge my trusty Jurlique Rosewater Mist (£16.50, 100ml) and pop it by the side of my bed. In the night if I get hot and bothered I just give my face a little bit of a spritz and I am instantly cooled and relaxed. This is such a lovely product from Jurlique and it's a light mist which doesn't soak you but only cools. Who wants to be wet in bed haha! On that note, that's all of my favourites folks. I hope you enjoyed and it's good to kinda be back!

Hugs & Kisses
