July & August Favourites

Last month, I was so off track I forgot to write about my July favourites. I was quite busy throughout the weeks between mid July and mid August so I'd like to say I have a valid excuse for why the July Favourites were missed out! Thus, I am here with a joint July and August Favourites for you today :)

My first favourites are skin and hair care, beginning with the Aussie Beach Mate Shampoo & Conditioner. I took this pair away with me on holiday and it literally saved my hair and kept it protected from sun, sand and sea. I'm kind of gutted though, because it doesn't work the same now I'm back home. Maybe it's the water, or maybe it's that my hair isn't battling sun, sand and sea any more. I would recommend this to anyway going away on a beach holiday!
My next fave is Bioderma's Sebium Gel which is a purifying and foaming cleansing gel. It is amazing! I love it and use it every day, twice a day. I got this from my aunt, which was given to her by someone she knows in France. I love this, as it feels super refreshing and works just as well as the Bioderma Sensibo H2O. It also hasn't got any nasty chemicals, so it doesn't irritate your eyes. I find it takes my eye make up quite nicely, but I always like to go over again with Sensibo H2O just in case :)
Lastly on my skin care faves, I have The Body Shop's Seaweed Pore-cleansing Facial Exfoliator. I like to swap out my Sebium Gel for this when I feel my face needs a real scrub. The tiny little bits inside helps cleanse pores, and polish up skin. I've got really bad pores so this is perfect to clear my skin and rid my blackheads.

Esteé Lauder Bronze Goddess, smells of summer. I bought this because I watched Lily Melrose's Favourites video on YouTube where she mentioned this, and after smelling it in Boots at the Herts/Beds Bloggers Meet, I knew I'd have to buy it. I bought it in Duty Free before going to Cyprus, and I've been loving it ever since! I don't want to run it out so I'm making sure I only use it on special occasions and weekends.

Lastly, here is my beauty favourites. After accumulating enough points, I spent them on the two Real Techniques starter sets and I've been using them every day ever since. I LOVE them, and I honestly think they're worth the money. I've reviewed the eye starter set here and will be reviewing the face starter set later on this week!
Recently, I've taken a change into my everyday makeup. I've swapped my L'Oreal Blackbuster liner for L'Oreal Superliner Gel Instenza in Golden Black. I've been loving the soft touch of this liner and the gold tint. It's been perfect for more sultry everyday looks, with a little gold glam.
I've been using my new Accessorize You Are Everything palette almost everyday too and I think I've used every colour already. It's probably my most used product in my beauty favourites.
The Mega Plush Mascara, always a top favourite, but recently it's been joined by the Color Shock Mascara in Electric Teal. I've loved playing around with this colour and am scheduling a make-up post featuring this mascara soon! It's so much fun to use!
The last recent thing I've bought is the two Boujois Rouge Edition in #12 and #13!? I wanted a bright red and a baby pink that wasn't shimmery, and these two were perfect. I've been alternating between these two but I think I'm more favoured towards the red.
Last favourite is a No7 highlighter I've had a long time. I think it was gifted to me last Christmas, but with my new brushes I've finally have been able to use it to it's full extent! And now I love it... My new favourite. I just wish I knew if they sold it out of the set it came in :(

What's in your recent favourites?

p.s. I do apologise if this post is everywhere. I'm a little on the tight side of time, and I've really wanted to post this for the last 4 days!


  1. These products look great!
    I love Aussie shampoo's and conditioners, especially the ones that smell like bubble gum :)
    I've also used, and loved, the body shop seaweed exfoliator!


    1. Thanks, I think Aussie is definitely my favourite hair care brand, and the exfoliator has done me wonders on my skin! XO
