I’ve yet to post a ‘monthly favourites’ post on my blog, so as it’s now September, I will share with you my August ultimate faves…
I’m always raving on about different skincare products as I love the feeling of soft skin and trying to find products without causing breakouts has apparently become a hobby of mine. I actually reviewed a few products in August, including my ultimate monthly favourite which has to be Keihl’s Ultimate Cleanser. I’ve used this non-stop this last month, it really helps to get rid of every last bit of makeup. It’s thick and creamy and leaves my skin matte (rather than my usual oil slick t-zone). I love that it leaves my skin feeling ultra clean and clear and doesn’t dry it out like some cleansers can.
This product is new to my collection and I will most likely be writing a review for this soon so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested!
I actually got this Josh Wood Hair Treatment Oil as a gift and although I’ve only used it a few times, it has quickly become a favourite. It has been specially developed to help care for coloured hair – great for bleach blondes! It is a lightweight and great at restoring hairs natural shine and moisture.
I haven’t picked up any new makeup recently, other than buying my must have, holy grail items. So with that in mind, my most used product in the last month (and most brought) has to be the Benefit Roller Lash Black Mascara. I’m in love with how this separates and coats each lash and makes my long lashes look even longer. I do quite often get complimented on my eyelashes or am asked which falsies I wear and I really notice the difference in appearance if I don’t use this mascara. It’s designed to help curl your lashes by having a Hook ‘n’ Roll brush which grabs, separates, lifts and curls. It also contains provitamins B5 and serin – ingredients known for their lash-conditioning benefits.
I’m also really into beauty blenders! (Brought four this past month already). This particular one is by Real Techniques which I picked up at Superdrug. It costs about £7.00, which may seem a lot for a sponge. However, it’s not just a sponge. Using the application technique called stippling in the make-up world, to apply your foundation, helps to blend make-up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. I usually use the pointed side for hard-to-reach spots around my nose and mouth and under my eyes. The stippling and twisting action feathers out foundation edges, leaving a perfect finish that lasts all day. I really notice that the texture of my foundation is better when I use this compared to using my fingers. The flat edge is great for applying loose powder to the face during “baking”.
My ultimate fave nail varnish has to be OPI’s “Let’s Be Friend’s” from their Hello Kitty Collection. It’s a very very light pink/white colour that looks great on tanned skin. I especially love this on my toes!
There you have it – my monthly faves! ♡
