August Favourites | 2016

So the past couple of weeks real lifeness has ran away with me.....but now I'm back, sitting here typing away my August Favourite with a hot chocolate in one hand & my little pineapple notebook in the other whilst it's raining cats and dogs outside.....what I'm trying to say is yes I did take a lil break but I'm now back in full swing. You may have noticed I didn't upload my July favourites and that was because I didn't really feel like anything had properly stood out to me but throughout August many a thing has you'll be pleased to know. So without further-a-do here are my August Favourites. 

First things I've been loving this month are two Lush products......Avocado Co-Wash & Dream Cream Body Lotion. If you know me & you know my blog then you will know just how much I frickin' LOVE Lush, so much so I've got another haul coming up very very soon. 

Avocado Co-Wash - I'm fully aware it looks like a huge block of cheese but it's not.......I wash my hair 2-3 times a week & this has been one of my holy grail haircare products for about 5 months now, & I can't for the life of me quite believe I've not ever mentioned it before now to you guys. Avocado Co-Wash is basically a deeply cleansing & nourishing hair co-wash that leaves your hair feeling hydrated, nourished & shiny in just one wash.......I can't even begin to tell you how much of a difference this has made to my hair, It's stronger, softer & just smells UH-MA-ZING. It's packed with fresh avocados, cider vinegar (gives hair a deep cleanse without damaging hair) & olive oil. It honestly leaves your hair oh so soft & silky. If you get dry hair or just want your hair to feel a million dollars I very highly recommend this, be sure to check it out. A block of this stuff lasts me about 1-2 months, and it's honestly one of the best hair care products on the highstreet.

Dream Cream Hand & Body Lotion - Sensitive skin is something that I struggle with, my skin is always dry so a couple of months back I purchased a pot of this body lotion after hearing many an amazing review & I thought I'd give it a whirl.....honestly I can now *places hand on heart* see just why it's one of Lush's NO.1 best selling products.....It's helped my skin imensely it's stopped it from feeling constantly dry, Dream Cream is really really hydrating and nourished my skin completely just after one use, I adore the smell it's a really sweet lavender, it's calming & soothes skin & has given my skin a new lease of life. I love this stuff SO much, that I'm now on my third pot. It's very light, and has an almost fluffy texture, I really couldn't agree more with the's honestly a dream cream. My skin just feels 100% better when I use this cream.

Nuxe Lip Balm - Not only do I get dry skin I also get really dry lips, but since using my trusty Nuxe Lip Balm all of my scaly lip worries have disappeared, as you can see by the photo above it's been well loved & I do need to repurchase another one of these, It's nourishing, hydrating & I can still feel it's there after I've had a drink or eaten something. It's one of my most favourite lip balms I've ever bought, it's another one of them product that I don't think I'll ever part with.

Alien By Thierry Mugler - I'm fully aware it's summer but after raking through my overgrown perfume collection I came across one of my all time favourite perfumes & it's Alien by Thierry Mugler, it's more of an autumn & winter perfume but it's one of them fragrances that I love wearing all year round, you can also smell it a million miles away, it just smells gorgeous, it's quite a sexy smelling fragrance yet anyone can wear it all year round, I've just been wearing this throughout the whole of August, It's the one fragrance that whenever I wear it everyone I know asks what perfume am I's just a perfume everyone I know seems to love. 

Makeup wise, I've been keeping it quite low key & have had more makeup free days than makeup days.....which is amazing for my skin however not so much for the general public & my friends. But I have been loving two very trusty concealers.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly - I've done a proper review of it here so I won't ramble (for a change) but it's one of the best concealers ever, hides my spiffing dark circles, it just looks like I've had a really good nights sleep whenever I use this, it's really light, blends like a dream and just feels hydrating. It's creamy and I've been alternating between this & the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer.

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in 01 Ivory - I've really been loving this......I was recently recommended to check out this concealer by one of my friends who said I'd love it, and boy she was right, not only does it smell of frickin' watermelon it doesn't leave an awful orange tone under my eyes, with me being a pale peach most highstreet/drugstore concealers & foundations leave a lovely orange tone to my english rose skin, this one doesn't, it's honestly SO good, it really brightens under your eyes & just looks like you've had 8 hours sleep. blends really nicely, it's quite moisturising & really hydrates your eyes, the coverage is really good but I will say it's not as good coverage wise as my trusty collection lasting perfection, but still it's not far off. It just makes your eyes looks nice and refreshed and like you've had the best nights sleep ever. Seriously check this concealer out.

Estee Lauder Blush in Tease - Surprise, Surprise my Estee Lauder Tease blush has made and appearance again....I use this blush ALL the time especially in the summer, whenever I use this my skin instantly looks fresh & healthy, it gives a beautiful glow to the skin & I just adore this blush. WHY oh WHY can't Estee Lauder bring it out as a permanent product.

And that is everything I've been loving throughout this August.
