July Favourites

So July whizzed by so fast, it was gloriously sunny for 99% of the month which is almost unheard of. My husband celebrated his birthday & we booked a holiday to Amsterdam so it’s been a quick but eventful month. I’m normally really late in sharing my favourites but I have a few things that I was excited to share with you.

Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25*

This has been my go-to daytime moisturiser as it has broad spectrum SPF25 its very lightweight, non-greasy and can be easily worn under makeup. Its been a must during the sunny month of July and has been keeping my skin protected from UVA & UVB rays.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Mono Eyeshadows

I blogged about these a couple of weeks ago and these shadows are just so very pretty. You can build them up to be intense or just sweep a light amount over your lids for more of a daytime look. They’re beautiful, I have 2 shades and I will be buying more at some point.

NYX Powder Blush in Angel

This is a pretty soft dusky pink and just gives you that fresh flushed look & its perfect for summer. It has a pretty sheen to it almost like a Mac MSF and it looks pretty when the light bounces off your cheeks. It’s not powdery and quite long wearing. It’s so good that we can now get our hands on NYX products in NEXT stores. I bought a few things last year when they first launched and I have used this beautiful blush the most.

Goodbye July Hello August

Essence Kabuki Brush*

I use this pretty black & pink brush to apply my blush, bronzer and even my face powder. It’s a soft dense kabuki brush & it washes up so well. I love how small it is & I will be bringing it with me when I go on holiday in August. It’s so handy as I use it to apply so many products.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist*

The lovely Carrie sent this to me after I won her brush giveaway. I have used it before & I love TBS Vitamin E range, It’s gentle and hydrating so this face mist is perfect for the heat wave that took over July. I have been keeping it on my desk & liberally spritzing it when I get hot. Its cooling and refreshing as well as having all the lovely skincare benefits too, so that’s a win-win situation

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Protection SPF50

This has been one of my go-to sun creams this Summer. It gives good protection and it is hydrating too oh & I like how it smells. Not a lot else to say except it does a good job of keeping my skin protected & doesn’t feel greasy.

Let me know what you loved during July & if you use any of the products I’ve mentioned.
