So I might be 10 days too late with this one, but it’s better late than never ey?! Today I’m sharing with you the best bits from June’s beauty bouquet. It’s short and sweet this time around with the start of the month seeing more no makeup days than usual and a particularly boring spending ban, meaning that while I havent got too much to write home about, the products that made the cut are ones which not even my pyjama wearing, crap TV watching, carb eating self could avoid. Here’s the run down…
The first product on my cosmetics conveyor belt is a complete lie, I didn’t even buy it in June and realistically it should have been saved for this months collection. That said, in the week or so which & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Mist has been mine I’ve been spritzing it like nobody’s business. A fresh scent which when thrown in your handbag makes a life saver of a product. It’s subtle and light but at the same time does linger. I should have bought the bigger one.
With a recent trip to London and a lot of time on trains and tubes I was washing my hands significantly more which led to them getting dry. For dry hands SOS I turned to The Body Shop’s Wild Rose hand cream. A feminine scent, great packaging and does a good job at nourishing hands quickly and effectively. No slippy mitts here.
To save my skin I have absolutely adored the Vitamin C Serum* from InstaNatural. This promises to hydrate, boost youth and give skin a radiant glow and my face can’t get enough of the stuff. This rids dehydrated skin of that awful tight feeling and makes a great base for any following layers of product. It’s orange coloured and has a fresh orange scent making it a great choice for mornings due to it’s awakening properties.
My only makeup pick this month comes in the form of MAC’s Cream Colour Base in Pearl. This has been giving me that much needed glow following a few early mornings and doesn’t look sweaty or greasy even in the current heatwave.
When I have worn makeup, I’ve been taking off any eye makeup with the Amphora Aromatics Soothing Aloe Eye Gel*. This product takes makeup off my tired, sore eyes leaving no residue and ridding the need to scrub the sensitive eye area. I’ve already popped up a review.
Finally my choice of mani this month is from Essie and is the shade Bikini So Teeny. Like the name, LOVE the colour. This is a blue toned lilac (lilac toned blue?) with bits of glitter and it really floats my boat. I’m not sure it’s MSH teritorry just yet but it’s definitely well on it’s way.
