July favouritesFriday, August 01, 2014
I have been loving July! It has been a very nice summery month and I have been enjoying it so much. Here are the products I couldn't go through the month without.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil - 10ml
July has been quite hot here in England and Tea tree oil is perfect for fighting against the skin problems that can come with the heat. It is a natural antiseptic and has good antifungal and antiparasitic properties. It can be applied to minor cuts, burns, abrasions, nail infections, pimples, boils, bites and stings. I have quite sensitive skin so I usually dilute it before using it directly (5 drops per 10ml). It is also very drying and for any little red spots/acne it is just perfect. I put a little drop on my finger and then rub it on the spot. As my skin is much oilier during summer time, I like using Tea tree and Manuka honey to keep it in balance.
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm - 75 ml
Oh my god! I cannot live without this balm anymore! It moisturises, gives shine, softness and smoothness. It is very sticky at first when applied but as I rub it more into my hair, it absorbs perfectly and gives such a light hold and feeling. It easily keeps my hair in style and even gives a bit of volume to my hair. Love it!
Kenzo Flower By Kenzo Creamy Body Milk - 50ml
This body milk was one of my birthday presents from Tristan last year. It is my 'special occasions only' body milk and I think I am subconsciously saving it. It has a nice light texture but still leaves skin moisturised. For hot weather it is great as it won't leave skin too shiny or oily. The scent is light but still catches attention.
L'Oréal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream, Anti-Redness - 30 ml
This CC Cream by L'Oréal works with natural tone to help neutralise the appearance of redness. I was surprised at first, as the cream came out a light green colour but because it contains smart pigment capsules it transforms into a foundation on contact with the skin. It is very light and definitely suits a nude look (and still leaves room for a buildable coverage). It has everything I need - 5 in 1 perfecting cream: flawless coverage, perfectly even skin texture, fresh dewy glow, 24 hour hydration and SPF 20 protection.
Miss Selfridge Glitter Rings
I wear them all the time! I love this style and they just look so flattering on the fingers. I like the golden trim and how nicely it goes with blue, pink and black.
