July Favourites 2015

I'm sorry this post is a few days overdue, but better late than never aye. I tried not to include products I've shown a lot so there's a few new products to show you and two non beauty favourites. 























Skincare


Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme
Boots/ Superdrug

I have been using these pads pretty much every night since I bought them. They are a stronger version of the original pads, they contain  5% glycolic acid, lactic and salicylic acid which helps exfoliate. These pads really do brighten, tone and clear up the skin. Definitely my favourite - favourite skincare item throughout July.  Full review posted.


Lush Whip Silk Lip Balm
Lush Cosmetics

Considering I'm a lip balm junkie, I don't know how I never tried the Lush ones before. This one is what I've been using most and it's incredible. It smells of chocolate in the best, non fake way and moisturises the lips instantly. It's a creamy formula that softens and hydrates. 

Makeup


Sleek Makeup Be Beautiful Blemish Balm
Boots/ Superdrug

I have used this product for years, and have been loving it recently because of the warm weather. Everything feels like it is melting off, but this is so light on the skin and doesn't slide off, on me anyway.  It still gives a good build able coverage and it actually matches my pale skin quite well!



The Body Shop Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer
The Body Shop

I picked this up with the new moisturiser and have been loving them immensely! This is a primer, that you apply under foundation, and it will give you a glow. It's a bright orange cream texture, no sparkle or shimmer. Once rubbed in you can't see the orange anymore, it's quite a thick texture so you don't need a lot. It's not a typical shimmery product, the glow comes from the orange tint, adding radiance and brightening. So if you have oily skin and do not like glittery primers, this might be for you. 



MAC Sublime Culture Cremestick Liner 
MAC Cosmetics

I finally got to the end of my sublime culture lip liner by MAC in July, and I miss it so much. It's the perfect lip colour for me ( your lips but more defined). If you use it everyday you probably can use it up in a couple months but mine lasted a year. I think I'm going to have to re - purchase this for my birthday!



Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Boots/ Superdrug

This is the best mascara I have ever used throughout my whole beauty life, and it's from the high street! It adds length, volume, curl and drama to lashes without being clumpy or too much. It's affordable and so amazing! I try to use my other mascaras but I just can't pull myself away from this one!

Bodycare


Bio Oil 
Boots/ Superdrug

My eczema has flared up so badly recently, and any heavy or even light body creams just seem to irritate it. Bio Oil is the only thing that has soothed, calmed and helped my eczema. It absorbs quickly and doesn't make me feel greasy and uncomfortable. Hopefully it helps my eczema be unnoticeable for my wedding dress trials!

Non Beauty Favourites


Wedding Ideas Magazine
Sainsbury's

I know I keep talking about my wedding, but I've been waiting for it for a long time, so I ain't stopping now! Anyway, I've been looking for things for inspiration and this magazine did it! It shows you real life weddings which are so beautiful and inspiring, and ideas for everything else. I will definitely keep buying each month's issues for tips and tricks. Pintrest is also great for wedding ideas.

The second non beauty favourite is music related, but I don't have a picture to show you. 
I have been OBSESSED with Fetty Wap. His music may not be to everyone's taste but I love him and his songs. At the moment 
679 is my favourite and it is constantly on repeat, I'm listening to it as I'm writing this post! Check him put if you don't know him already!

Thank you so much for reading
