Another month down which means another month of fabulous favourites to show you! It’s crazy to think we’re over halfway through the year now and on the downwards slope in to Winter now and the little bit of Summer we’ve had is going to be coming to an end very soon. Boo! Looking back at July, I’ve tried a lot more new products than I would usually, and I’ve had some much welcomed additions join my beauty regime. This is partly because I’ve finally jumped on the Glossybox bandwagon (I’m probably the only blogger who hadn’t signed up!) and I’ve been really impressed with my first two boxes so far! Here’s what I’ve been loving over the past month…
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub – Believe it or not I’ve never actually tried a lip scrub before now, other than ones I’ve rustled up myself using brown sugar and honey. This is a really fine sugary scrub which really gets in there and gets rid of dead skin, but the thing that sold me is the scent (or should I say taste!). So good!
Primark PS Love French Nails – Before I bought these a couple a month’s back, the last time I’d worn false nails was probably at least ten years ago. I’d heard on the blogging grapevine that Primark’s false nails were pretty good, so when I saw these classic french nails in my local store for £1, I thought I’d give them a whirl! I did have to trim these down quite far as I really don’t like super long nails on myself, but once I’d filed and shaped them I was super impressed. The glue isn’t the best, but I got a good three or four days out of a set, and had enough nails to apply a second set with just one pack.
Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner – Every blogger and her dog has spoken about this amazing new liner from Benefit, so I won’t bore you with a lengthy review. All I’ll say is that this has finally made liner easy for me, and boy, does it have staying power!
Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Pomegranate – I’ve spoken openly in many posts about my love for these Gelly polishes, and I just can’t stop buying them! This is my colour of choice at the moment; a gorgeous berry shade that will be just as perfect for Autumn as it is for Summer.
Bella Pierre Cosmetics Lipstick in Mandarina – One of my favourite items from the Glossyboxes I’ve had so far is this gorgeous bright orangey red lipstick. It’s a really nice formula and the colour is extremely pigmented. It’s stays put for hours, too!
L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes – I was nearly out of mascara so was pretty chuffed when I found this in my June Glossybox. Mascaras aren’t really my thing, so I only every really have one at a time and I don’t tend to be swayed by all the claims brand’s make about theirs. That doesn’t mean I don’t love to wear it thought! This one is really bold and black and adds bags of volume to my lashes without clumping.
Rituals Qi Gong Anti Perspirant Spray – Yet another Glossybox item, this deodorant is so nice! This handy sample size made it’s way straight in to my handbag for freshening up on the go. The scent is really lovely with a fresh and floral fragrance that gives you an instant pick me up. I’ve never tried anything from Rituals before, but this has got me wanting to explore the brand more!
Mont Blanc Legend Pour Femme – I’ve featured this perfume on my blog before, no doubt in my favourites if I remember rightly! I went through my first bottle within a few weeks because I love it so much, so when I saw it on sale at The Fragrance Shop I just had to snap up another bottle! I’ve fallen back in love with it all over again. If you like fresh, feminine scents, then definitely give this a try if you see it on the shelves!
Lush Let The Good Times Roll Cleansing Scrub – This is a new discovery for me after being given a little sample pot to try out at my local Lush. It’s a scrub that is made from a number of fresh ingredients such as polenta, maize flour, cinnamon and even popcorn! It’s quite a fine yet rough (if that’s possible!?) scrub that I use both on my face and body. I tend to use it on my face in the evenings once a week or when my skin is looking particularly gnarly, and can guarantee I’ll wake up with baby soft skin the next day. So glad I found this!
Charles Worthington Salon At Home Texturising Spray* – I’ve finally dipped my toe in the texturising spray world and can safely say I’m hooked! I suffer from quite fine, flat hair that requires a lot of work to get it looking how it does, and this takes a lot of the hard work away! I tend to use this on second day hair when my curls have settled in to loose waves and my hair needs a bit of a boost. I love the effect it gives and how much volume it adds!
That’s everything I’ve been loving throughout the month of July! Let me know which products you’ve been enjoying, or link me to your favourites posts if you’ve done one too! I love to be nosey 😉
