August Favourites |
Again i cannot believe August has been and gone, and its like only four months till christmas which is crazy. This month has been lovely with birthday celebrations and catching up with old friends. Its sad to think that summer is almost over now. This month i have been keeping things very simple. My skin has been going crazy with dryness and sensitivity which is something im not used to.
To start with the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic has been a complete life saviour with my skin. Normally i would turn to my trusty lush tea tree water but this toner has really helped to soothe my sensitive red patches on my face and also help to inject more moisture into my skin. I think that a toner is a very skipped out step in skincare routines and even though it may seem like it doesnt instantly see results its an added step to sort out your skin. Again its packed full if gentle ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber and chamomile. If you are looking for added moisture or even if you have sensitive skin then this is a great addition for your skin.
Aswell as my face been crazily dry my hands have been horrible - its reminded me of how my hands go in the colder months where i have to keep applying hand cream twice a day. The Garnier 7 days daily hand cream has been just what i needed. Its quite a thick consistency but sinks into the skin quickly and doesnt leave that tacky feeling. Ive been using it every morning and evening which my hands are thankful for. The past couple of days they have been so much better hydrated and no horrible dryness. Its super cheap at £2.99 and well be a winner in the winter colder months too.
I recently had my hair cut and instead of having my layers cut back in i decided not to as i wanted my hair to feel alot thicker instead of being overly choppy. Having fine hair i always want lots of volume to create thickness at the roots and the crown of my hair. The Charles Worthington Salon At Home Volume Shampoo is amazing. Its enriched with collagen which boosts the hair to be more bouncy and fuller. It smells divine and makes your hair appear to have way more volume. Once ive washed my hair i then blowdry my hair upside down to give extra volume. The shampoo also gives shine and gloss to the hair too. At £5.99 its a good price for giving your hair some much needed volume.
For my lips i have been using two products religiously this month. The first being one of the Maybelline Baby Lips which is the clear mint lipbalm. I can totally see the hype surrounding these lipbalms and ive been using this since my american haul earlier this year. The lipbalm is moisturising and hydrating on the lips that leaves them plump and soft. It also contains a spf 20 which is impressive for the hotter days. (hate having burnt lips) and the other product which also does the same job is the Nivea Pearly Shine Lip Balm - this leaves a sheer pink tint to the lips again leaving the lips so hydrated. I have been using this everyday as just an added bit of colour to my everyday makeup too.
