july favourites

I say this on almost every monthly favourites posts, but I genuinely can't believe another month has passed by. When I was younger I never used to understand it when adults said time goes too fast, but it really does! We've been living back in the North for a month now but it literally feels like we've only been here 2 minutes!

Let's get onto my favourite products from the month of July... I feel like I tried SO many different thing & I've found some products that I know I'll be sticking with for a long time! 

The first product I'm going to mention is Palmer's Cocoa Butter, which I've actually used for years but rekindled my love for it recently. Cocoa Butter has always been one of my go to moisturisers but then Soap & Glory came along & Cocoa Butter kinda got forgotten about. I found a stash of it when I was packing up the flat & decided to use it again. I'm one of those people that HAS to moisturise after my shower, even though it's effort my skin gets mad at me if I don't!

The second product I've loved using is the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation, I'm actually annoyed I haven't tried it sooner! My Sister let me try some of it & I've been wearing it everyday since. The reason why I love it so much is because it provides high coverage without feeling heavy or thick on my skin. It seems to melt into my skin when I apply it, hiding my imperfections & under eye circles but doesn't make me look like I'm caked in makeup. It's a decent price too at less than £9 for a bottle!

Up next is the L'Oreal Eye & Lip Makeup Remover which has been a lifesaver on days when I've worn heavy eye makeup. It feels more like a gel consistency rather than a liquid & removes makeup in a few seconds. It doesn't sting or irritate my eyes, theres nothing worse than removing makeup with a product that leaves your eyes feeling sore. 

Slightly embarassing to admit this but I love Britney Spears Fantasy perfume! It's a really sweet scent & lasts all day, I always get asked what I'm wearing if I have it on & it's also dead cheap. I know a lot of people think it's a teenager's perfume but oh well haha!

Nars Lipgloss in Tasmania* is probably the prettiest lip product I own, it's a warm toned pink that I find suitable for everyday wear. Usually lip glosses annoy me because they're so sticky & my hair gets stuck to my lips but it's not the case with this one. It still leaves a glossy shine to my lips but isn't too gloopy which means I can wear it without having to worry about it ending up all over my face (I've had bad experience with lipgloss being swiped all over my cheeks after my hair stuck to it!! awks)

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is another product that has made it's way back into my life after years of me going without it. This is the free sample that came with Glamour Magazine but I definitely want to pick up the full sized version of it when I get paid. I used this as a teenager as my skin used to be terribly dry, I don't really suffer from that anymore but I love velvety soft feeling it gives to my skin & my makeup always applies amazingly well on top of it.

My final favourite of the month is Pond's Eye Contour Cream* which is the newest addition to my skincare routine. I've been using it both morning & night to soothe my puffy eyes & to keep the skin smooth & hydrated. It feels so cool & refreshing around my eye area, it's such a treat to apply it in an evening after I've taken off all my makeup!

What have been your favourite products this month?
