July & August Favourites

Another two months has gone by which means another favourites post is due! I’ve had such a busy summer this year which I never really planned for but it’s been brilliant and I’ve enjoyed it so much as well as using a lot of different products and changing up my skincare routine.

Dead Sea Spa Magik BB Cream 

I got this sample sized BB Cream in a beauty box and when I first tried it about 3 weeks ago I couldn’t believe I left it that long to try it! This is by far the best BB cream I have tried and I have been using it 2-3 times a week in between days of wearing foundation. You can tell by the texture of this just how moisturising it is. I suffer with dry skin and sometimes I can be really flaky but this has kept my skin nice without being oily and really evened out my skin tone with just a slight tint to it. Admittedly it looks a lot darker than it is but once applied it looks even and not dark at all. I will definitely be buying a full size one of these as it’s been perfect for the summer!

L’oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask

I was sent this as part of a set of masks to try out and review and although I have been loving them all, this one in particular has been really amazing on my skin. This mask isn’t at all drying and sometimes I find that detox masks are more drying than others for me. My skin is always left feeling soft and hydrated to the point where my skin has been looking almost completely smooth the past couple of weeks! I would definitely recommend this one to all skin types because it’s the type of product that is good for everyone.

REN Seaweed and Sage Body Wash 

Recently I have been finding it hard to relax in the evening but this has been one of the things that’s helped me. I generally shower in the evening and the scent of this is so calming I also come out feeling ready for bed. The texture of this is very much a gel almost like jam is but it is really nice to rub in and wash off. It leaves me feeling super clean and my skin doesn’t fry out from it either.

No7 Velvet Lash Mascara

I have been using this mascara for a couple of months and sadly nearing the end of tube but I am so in love with this mascara. It’s what I call an all-rounder because it can be worn in the day for a more casual look and in the evening apply an extra evening and you have longer, darker, fuller lashes. This is one of those pure black mascaras which is a must for me and I love that I can do my bottom lashes with this one too. This is one of those products that I’ve found myself only reaching for, there is no competition right now!

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint (Lilac) 

I have been wearing this nail varnish constantly throughout the past couple of months. I have literally been taking it off when it chips and reapplying it! Not only is the colour amazing but sometimes when I’m feeling a bit lazy I don’t apply a top coat and this always survives on my nails for at least 4 days which is pretty good for me. It also dries quickly which is such a bonus because I tend to paint my nails before bed and I hate it when they stay tacky for ages.

Vaseline Spray 7 Go Aloe Fresh

This last one is basic one but a goodie. I have been using this for so long but for over the summer it has been such a life saver. The reason for this is that because it’s a spray it has such a light texture and is easily absorbed so doesn’t leave any greasy feeling which is literally the worst feeling on a hot day. I always find my skin is so soft and hydrated even if I don’t use a moisturiser for a few days.

Let me know what your summer favourites have been!
