August Favourites

hello september. Those lazy months of summer will soon feel like a distant memory as we cling onto the last few days of sunshine. Whether your heading back to school, college, uni or work here is something that might cheer you up. A selection of my favourite products this months, specially chosen and trailed just for you. 

Original Konjac Sponge £5.25
Now, this first product is worth raving about. It is a face and body sponge that not only does wonders for your skin; it is biodegradable and 100% natural. Made from potato fibres, this sponge gently exfoliates,cleanses and softens my skin leaving a nice healthy glow. Very good value for money, and a real treat for you! Suitable if you find muslin clothes to harsh or if you have sensitive skin. Read more on this here.

TOMMYGUNS Colour Save Intensive Mask £7.00
You may not recognize this haircare brand but they have won numerous awards - rightly so! Because I dye my hair blonde it often looks dull, this product helps to condition and brighten my hair. It smells lovely too, with a blend of apricot and almond.I use this once a week ot when I want my hair to look it's best. View other products from their range here

Blink Eyebrow Grooming Gel £15.00
This coloured gel is great for filling in any gaps and doesn't leave your eyebrows feeling crusty! It also doubles up as a mascara - making the price not seem so bad. It is great for keeping my brows in place & I use it daily! Blink website here

Purity Facial Exfoliator £5.99
A really nice gentle exfoliator. It contains ground coconut shell to exfoliate as well as Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Glycerine and Aloe Vera. Leaves my skin conditioned & clear. I'll always use this before applying fake tan to my face. Purity products here.

L'Occitane Organic Lavender Body Lotion £18.00
You may already know this, but I'm a big fan of lavender scented beauty products. I apply this after a shower, the smell is so relaxing and it leaves my skin nice and soft. The non greasy formula absorbs quickly too. Check out their lovely website here.

SteamCream £10.50
I like my product packaging, and it doesn't get any better than this. This multi-purpose cream is handmade in England. The steam-infused process used to create the cream gives it it's unique name. The natural ingredients it contains inclulde; lavender oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter and oatmeal infusion. Specially selected ingredients help to keep my skin hydrated and feeling soft. I LOVE the tin it comes in, I will be keeping it long after the cream has ran out! Check them out here. My favourite August Favourite! 
Bombshell Body Revealing Body Cleanser £12.75
I'm attending my friends birthday party this month and the dress I'm wearing shows of my back. Before I discovered this product, I had planned on using my normal face cleanser to keep my back looking clear! This product contains micro-crystals that help to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. I use this daily to keep my skin looking fresh & clear. Check out more from the range here

Smooch Eye shadow Duo in Suede £9.50
New make up brand Smooch recently launch some new cosmetics. I am big fan of their eye shadow's. Good pigmentation and a lovely range of colours to choose from. I like their matte black packaging too! At the minute everything as 50% off - be quick as it ends soon. View Smooch Cosmetics here

Blink Luscious Lash Oil £16.00
Second Blink product, this lash oil moisturises, strengthens and conditions my eyelashes. I really like the hard brush it comes with as it's easy to coat every lash. It also smells very nice! With hints of Apricot & jasmine. It is a little bit pricey, a cheaper alternative would be some good old vaseline.  

Lipcote Lipstick Sealer £3.45
If you wear lipstick, you need this in your life. Simples. This classic product has been going for 50 years & is just as strong today. It stops lipstick from feathering and gives a nice velvet finish. Beautifully packaged and designed, a must have product for all beauty junkies. View the website here

Sranrom Blissful Blossoms Shower Gel £12.00
Silly me forgot to illustrate this, but I love it & want to include it in my favs! I like my shower gels to smell amazing - and this does not dissappoint. With aromas like champaka and ylang ylang this luxourious product is very relaxing. I have to use this everytime I shower! More Sranron here.
