I know it may be a little late but I thought I would share my August Favourites with you! Theres a mix of everything here, I have been loving a lot this month gone!
THE BODY SHOP POMEGRANATE AND RASPBERRY HOME FRAGRANCE OIL.
I have been burning this scent for literal years now, and I still adore it. I like to think of it as my signature home smell.
This is a fruitily sweet smell that is very refreshing, very summery (although I burn it year round). It is actually made with blackcurrant extract and lemon oils as well- which adds to an all-round pleasant aroma. I also have the room and linen spray in the same scent, it is absolutely divine.
REB’L FLEUR EAU DE PARFUM BY RIHANNA
Sticking to the fragrances I’ve been on the lookout for a more sophisticated perfume for a while now, I’ve always gone for the girly sweet perfumes and I’ve decided that its time for some spice. I had heard good things about this perfume and picked up the 30ml size to try it out. Needless to say this perfume is already half gone. I thought I would go back to my old faithfuls but this base of vanilla, musk and patchouli with peach and berry notes has really captured me. The lasting power is brilliant, the compliments even more so. I’ll definitely be repurchasing full size. Love it.
FORMULA 10.0.6 ONE SMOOTH OPERATOR PORE CLEARING FACE SCRUB
I have been using this for a while now, once or twice a week, and this really does the job as far as face exfoliators go. It can be quite rough, you only need to gently rub it on but it leaves your face soft and incredibly moisturised. It smells quite pleasant and I love the ingredients such as pumice, oat and zinc. It lasts for such a long time as the a small amount goes very far. I am quite fond of this brand and have been happy with all the products I have purchased, winner.
THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE OIL
I am very aware of how much this has been raved about. This stuff is brilliant. I use this on my stress/hormonal breakouts and it works wonders, clears everything right up within a couple of days. I’m going to keep this short and sweet because enough has been said, yes?
LUSH EAU ROMA TONER WATER
This is a very calming product, it also is very hydrating and revitalising. (enough ing’s in there?) This is my go to wake-me-up product in the mornings and I use it after every cleanse. It is very gentle, very subtle but it makes a massive difference to my morning routine.
ESTEE LAUDER ILLUMINATING PERFECTING PRIMER
I’ve spoken about this product before and I still love it. This a wonderfully, brightening, long lasting primer that is incredibly lightweight and decadent.
My makeup last so much longer and applies so much better when I am wearing this, and it definitely wasn’t a product I was looking to buy- glad to say I was pleasantly surprised. Best illuminating primer I’ve tried yet.
MAC EYESHADOW IN OMEGA
This is one of those products I use day in day out. Not only is this a gorgeous neutral eyeshadow but it also matches my eyebrows perfectly. I reach for this pretty much EVERY morning and spice it up at night with a charcoal brown in my crease. A definite must-have.
NARS BLUSH IN MADLY
Another one of those “I’ve spoken about this before” products, but I really do love this thing. I may have to invest in a brighter blush for summer (as this is my only NARS blush- and you can never have enough, am I right?) but this is perfect for Autumn, Winter and Evening wear. I will still be wearing this a lot, as it is very versatile- the colour is a deep, peachy pink- still extremely wearable.
ZOEVA ROSE GOLD LUXURY BRUSH SET
Of course these are going to be in my favourites, you already know I’m in love with them. They are so soft, so stylish and so pleasant to use. They make makeup application a breeze and you feel so high-end using these. Love Love Love.
ESSIE POLISH IN ETERNAL OPTIMIST
This colour is so feminine and pretty to wear I have been wearing it all month. It is a dusty rose colour, and the perfect brightness for it still to be a light, go-with-everything kind of polish. It lasts a very decent amount of time, although I do use a top coat also.
KMS FREE SHAPE 2 IN 1 STYLING & FINISHING SPRAY
Last but not least, this product doubles as a hairspray/heat protectant. I brought this when I chopped my long locks off and it has been a god-send. It sprays the perfect amount of product and does not leave your hair feeling heavy or crunchy, it is light and rather invisible which I love. It keeps my curls in for days.
That is it for my August favourites and I hope you enjoyed. These products have been ones that I have been reaching for very daily and I can honestly say I don’t think they’re going anywhere soon!
