Hello, gosh I cannot believe that it’s time for August favourites. Where has August gone??? It makes me sad to say goodbye to August as I’ve had such a relaxing time and made some great memories. However, it does mean we’re edging ever so close to the end of the year and after a very difficult 2013 so far I’m happy to say goodbye. Everything on this post seems to look a little bland but I’ve really loved all of these products and have to share them with you…
In Summertime everyone wants their skin to look the best, as it’s probably the only time of year your skin sees the sun. It can be a bit of a chore slathering on body moisturiser in the morning or after shower time, so this is where this lovely product comes in. You use it after cleansing with shower gel and you rub it into your skin before rinsing off. It applies like a creamy body lotion and this one smells beautiful. When you step out of the shower your skin feels soft and moisturised and I don’t feel like I have to apply moisturiser. I’ll definitely be re-buying!
If you’re a regular on my blog you will know how much I love Clinique. This month I’ve really loved using their Moisture Surge Overnight Mask because my skin has felt a little dry from all of the sun it’s had. I use this as a night cream and it’s not too thick and on a morning leaves my skin feeling fresh and moisturised without being oily.
I am obsessed with hair products at the moment. Again, after the amount of sun my hair has had it is desperately needing a nourishing treatment. This product is so perfect, you apply it like a leave in conditioner and dry/straighten your hair as normal. It smells so fruity and amazing and leaves my hair feeling and looking stronger and healthier. I definitely want to do a full review of this little beauty.
I love this lipstick so much. To me it’s been my perfect Summer shade, bright and pretty yet totally wearable. I’ve not tried much of the topshop makeup range but judging by how much I love this maybe I need to explore. The shade is the most perfect coral pink and the longevity is great too.
This is one of those perfumes I’ve had for a while but haven’t tried because I’ve been happy with my usual scents. However, I sprayed some of this before my holidays and fell in love. It’s such a beautiful scent. I’m rubbish at describing smells but it’s described as ‘combining a sparkle of mandarin, wild berries and water lily with a hedonic blend of dewy honeysuckle, gardenia petals and jasmine.’ It’s just beautiful and perfect for Summer.
I decided to come out of my comfort zone and part from my beloved Maybelline the Falsies Mascara and try something else. I definitely made the right decision because I have found a new favourite. This mascara makes my lashes look so long, without clumping or looking flaky. It claims to be a lash enhancer while helping lashes grow. They definitely look amazingly long when I apply this!
Have you tried any of these products, what were your thoughts? What products have you been loving this month?
