June Favourites 2017

We're another month closer to my 20th birthday but I'm trying to ignore that and instead, I'm focusing on the fact we're another month closer to Christmas! Yes, I'm already talking about Christmas, #sorrynotsorry! I haven't done any serious beauty shopping for a little while now so most of the products in today's post are things you've probably seen me mention before but there are a couple new bits that I'm really looking forward to showing you! 
Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist - £18
I've been a massive fan of Pixi ever since I first tried their Glow Tonic and one product I just can't be without is their Hydrating Milky Mist. It's so light and refreshing and I love using it as a hydrating toner in my everyday skincare routine. 

Happy Place Cosmetics Banana Bread & Vanilla Chai Face Scrub - £14
I don't think I can do a monthly favourites post and not talk about at least one Happy Place Cosmetics product. I love a good face scrub and I figured it was about time I try one of their other scents. I'm not usually a banana person but this smells absolutely amazing. There's a slight spicy note from the Vanilla Chai and it's so warm and comforting when you massage it into the skin. Like the other scrubs, it does an amazing job at gently exfoliating and giving my skin a smooth yet moisturised feeling afterwards. If you haven't tried one of the HPC Face Scrubs, stop what you're doing and go order one!

Pure Potions Skin Salvation Moisturising Ointment 30ml - £7.99
If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll probably know that I suffer from eczema on my hands and body. I never used to have any issues with dry, itchy skin until I had a reaction to the contraceptive pill, (TMI, but I thought I'd be open). Since then the eczema has stayed with me and I constantly get flare ups. This product has saved my skin and although I still have an ongoing struggle with my eczema, this does an amazing job at reducing and soothing any itching, dryness or painful cracks. It's 100% natural and is formulated with Beeswax, Hemp, Olive, Chamomile, Nettle, Chickweed, and Calendula. It's seriously amazing stuff and I would highly recommend this to anyone with any kind of dry skin issue!

Clinique Lip Pop + Primer Beige Pop - £16.50
I've recently rediscovered these Clinique lipsticks and I'm so glad I have as they're one of my all time favourite formulas. They give me just the right amount of colour, sheen and moisture and they're so easy to wear and reapply throughout the day. Recently I've been wearing Beige Pop which is a beautiful everyday nude shade.

Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Primer - £10
My skin has been a lot shinier recently due to the warmer weather and although I love a glow, there's definitely a fine line between healthy and dewy and downright sweaty. I've been using this under my base products and I'm so happy with the finish it gives. My congested areas look smoother and my base lasts so much longer but the main reason I love it is because it doesn't have that horrible silicone-y texture. It's actually quite moisturising which is very rare for a mattifying primer!

  2. I recently tried Clinique Chubby Stick and fell absolutely in love and now want to try more makeup from the brand. Clinique Lip and Cheek Pop are definitely next in my list to buy!
