June Favourites | 2017


It seems to have been a while since I’ve actually sat down and typed a blog post, so today I thought I would type my June Favourites. Some favourites you will have seen before and some are new to me. 

One thing you may or may not know about me is that I am a huge lover of good body moisturisers, as when it comes to moisturising my body and actually helping my dry skin I’m a lazy so & so. However one product I have been loving hugely is a hand & body lotion from Lush called Sympathy For The Skin. This is the perfect body lotion for somebody who isn’t a fan of scented lotions & potions, It’s really moisturising, extremely light and soaks in beautifully into your skin. I love how it doesn’t feel oily and smells light. It’s packed with bananas, cocoa butter & sweet vanilla pod infusion. In other words heaven in a tub.

Sticking with Lush another product of theirs that I have been loving this month is the No Drought Dry Shampoo, I’m a batiste girl at heart but I have been thoroughly enjoying using this it’s a lot more healthier for your hair compared to batiste, I have found that the smallest amount goes a long way & you really don’t need a lot with this dry shampoo. It’s really lightly scented and doesn’t leave white streaks in your hair. 

The Body Shop Mojito range is probably one of my faves. I got SO excited when I saw that they were releasing a Mojito themed range including body butters, scrubs ect. Mojitos are one of my favourite drinks however I don’t drink so I always have a mocktail one. As you have probably guessed it smells exactly like your classic mojito it’s fresh fruity & just screams summer. I’ve really been loving this.

Makeup wise there are a fair few things, one being my Nars Tinted Moisturiser I’ve done a proper review of that here so I will not bore you.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray is one product I have a love hate relationship with, love the actual product itself but I HATE the smell it makes me gag ever so slightly. My makeup stays longer and looks a lot nicer when I use this, instead of my face of the day slipping off by the late afternoon it lasts me to infinity & beyond when I use this, it’s hydrating and doesn’t feel sticky or sit uncomfortably on top of your skin. All in all I do love it just wish they’d change the smell.

The Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener is something I’ve talked about a fair bit already and it’s because it really is amazing, I feel like everyone should own one of these, I put this underneath my concealer and it really brightens my horrid dark circles & hides them completely, it makes your eyes look awakened and hydrated instead of tired and lifeless. 

When it comes to eyeshadows we all know how much I love a neutral shade so when I saw Stilla had finally launched one of my all time favourite shades which is Kittens into a single individual eyeshadow pot I had to get my hands on it, It’s this pretty neutral whitish pinky toned shadow that goes with any eye makeup, from a simple wash all over the lid to the inner corners of your eye it’s fabulous. It works really nicely with a simply winged eyeliner look too.

Brush wise there have been two stand out favourites this month. One is my Real Techniques Sculpting Brush I have been loving this brush for foundation it buffs it in beautifully leaves a flawless finish and makes foundation application an utter walk in the park. The other brush is again from Real Techniques & it’s the multitask eye brush, I use this one daily to blend in my Bobbi Brown Tinted Eyebrightener, this brush I don’t actually use for eyeshadow I use it for either my correctors or concealers or on spots it’s a nifty brush that I simply can’t live without now.

That is everything I have been loving this past June. What products or things have you been loving this past month?
