June Favourites 2015

June has been a good beauty month for me. I've picked up some amazing new products towards the end of the month, and they're so good, they're already favourites. There's even some non beauty favourites that I wanted to share with you. So, here is what I have been loving throughout the month of June.



Skincare 





Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel 
 Space NK

I wanted to try this for so long, and I finally picked it up a couple of weeks ago. I won't go on too much because I have a full review on it. It is such an amazing cleansing gel. It softens, cleans and brightens my skin. Definitely worth the wait and money. 





Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm

I only got this last week, but I have used it everyday since! Sometimes when I'm in Lush I feel like I don't get the real smell of something, because there's such an overpowering scent to the whole store. This smelt amazing in store and out. It's sweet, softening and moisturising. Great for smoothing dry lips!



Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads
Boot

I'm loving these pads recently! When I want more oomph for my acid tone, these are what I use. Again, there is a full review up. They brighten and smooth my skin every time I use them, I also really like their smell. Bonus. 

Makeup 





Revlon HD Lipstick - Rose
Boots/Superdrug

This is a rare buy for me, because I normally don't go for bright lip colours. I am much more comfortable with nudes, but this lipstick has inspired me to get more bright shades. The packaging is simple, but the formula is amazing! It is so creamy, smooth and opaque. This is a bright rosy pink, and it's so flattering. One of the best formulations I've ever tried.




MAC Prep and Prime Natural Radiance - Radiant Yellow
MAC 

Throughout June, I used this almost every time I did my makeup. I don't normally need a primer to hold my foundation in place, but with the warm weather my makeup slides around quicker than normal. It smoothes, evens and creates a perfect base for foundation. My foundation looks glowy and radiant. My base stays set a lot better as well. A good summer staple. 




Clinique Cheek Pop - Melon Pop
Selfridges

This blush is just beautiful. The design, the colour, the texture, it's all just perfect. This is one of the new shades they released and it had my name written all over it! I cannot get enough of peach/coral toned blushes. It gives such a healthy flush on the skin. There is no shimmer, just a gorgeous sheen. I would say you have to build the colour up, so it's best to use a semi-dense brush. (Real Techniques Contour Brush is perfect)

Nails



Boutique Nail Polish - The Royal Mint
Sainsbury's 

This nail polish is summer in a bottle to me. Before this shade, I've never worn bright colours on my nails, or anything besides pink basically. It is very opaque, two coats is all you need. It's a beautiful mint colour that I think anyone can wear. At £4, what a great product. 

Body Care



Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter - Exotic Coconut
Boots/ Sainsbury's

I have been using this everyday since I bought it! It is so comforting to the skin. I am not using it for sunburn but as my daily body cream/butter. It is thick but it absorbs quickly and intensely moisturises. The scent, well it's hypnotising. If you like coconut scents, you will love this!


Hair Care



Superdrug Coconut Water and Coconut Oil Masque
Superdrug

Oh my gosh. If you have not tried this, just buy it. Please go to  Superdrug and pick it up, you will not be disappointed.
I bought this and the shampoo, and my hair has never looked so shiny and healthy. Firstly it's coconut based, which is always a good thing, secondly it has transformed my hair. My hair has never been bad, or very damaged, but recently I wanted to get back some of the shine and silkiness. This masque smells so good, it almost makes my mouth water because it smells so juicy. I use this as my conditioner, 4 days a week. I leave it on for 5 minutes rinse thoroughly. Once my hair is dried, it is so soft and beautiful, but not fake soft, good soft. Just try it! It's inexpensive as well, so everyone can enjoy it.


Non Beauty Favourites


Lana Del Ray - Born To Die Album

My fiancé and I are hooked on this album. Yes, it has been out for a few years but recently it is my go to when I need music. The songs are not too loud but aren't too slow. They have beautiful meaning and her voice is so powerful! It sets the mood for me while I'm blogging, I just can't get enough. 



Beauty and the Beast DVD

This is an old favourite of mine and I finally purchased the DVD. The story is so beautiful but teaches so many lessons and morals. I think it's a film anyone can appreciate and I love watching it at night time. 

Thank you for reading!
