August Favourites

UK Beauty Blogger, August Favourites, Monthly Favourites, August Beauty Favourites,
Is anyone else really excited now that September has rolled around it's officially Autumn, or is that just me!? I love how cozy Autumn/Winter is, I'm not a Summer person at all really, give me blankets, candles & hot chocolates over bikinis & ice lollies any day! 

So what beauty products did I love the most during August?

First up is Zoella's Foam Sweet Foam Shower Gel, I like the light fragrance & the pretty pink pearlescent formula, plus it leaves me feeling squeaky clean. I also LOVE the Scrubbing Me Softly Body Scrub but silly me forgot to grab that out of the shower for these photographs. 

Washi Tape is another favourite of mine, I've been using it to hold up artwork until I get round to buying frames but I think I'll end up keeping some of them taped to the wall. These 3 are a little set from Oliver Bonas, a shop that I am obsessed with if you didn't already know that! 

I get very dry skin around my nails so I've been making more of a conscious effort to give them a bit of TLC by using Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. It smells absolutely divine, like Sherbet Lemon sweeties, the scent hangs around for ages too! It has really helped to soften up my cuticles & dry skin, I'm no longer ashamed of the state of my nails. 

I recently had blonde put through my hair which has since turned quite brassy which I was really unhappy with until I remembered I used to use Purple Shampoo when I had my hair ombre'd a few years ago! PROVOKE Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo has lifted the brassy, harsh tones from my hair & brightened up the colour. It's so cheap too, you can't really go wrong - although I have heard if you leave it on too long or use it regularly you can end up with purple hair but thats never happened to me! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade is my latest makeup obsession, it's finally helped me to achieve eyebrows I'm happy with & thats a big deal for me! I suffer from wonky eyebrows & I know they say eyebrows are 'Sisters not Twins' but I feel like mine are noticeably uneven & that makes me really self conscious. I have the shade Medium Brown which is a perfect match for me, all I do is load my MAC 266 with a small amount of product & apply gentle strokes throughout my brows. They look so much more natural, I'm not really a fan of the bold, overdrawn brows anymore, it just doesn't suit me! 

My last favourite is the L'Oreal True Match Concealer in the shade Vanilla, I happened to pick this up on a whim as my local Boots was out of stock of Collection's Lasting Perfection! When I went to use it my heart sank a little as it looked too dark but I tried it anyway & it is orangey on my skin tone but it's really good at hiding the blue tones I have around my eyes. It blends in easily & you can't tell it's the wrong shade for me once I go over it with my foundation brush! 

Thats it for my August Favourites, what are yours!?

  2. Burt's Bees is in my wish list :)

    I only have tweezers from Anastasia and they are really really cool! Thinking to explore this brand a bit more, i.e. eye brown stencils

  4. I'm using a silver shampoo at the minute as well, its great for toning down brassiness, and I've been using Bleach's Reincarnation mask as well to give my hair a little pick me up. I need to try Dipbrow, its been on my wishlist for aaaaages!

  5. I'd love to try the Dip Brow but I have zero idea what shade I'd be, unfortunately! I wonder if the concealer would be great in a paler shade as I love the True Match foundation!

  11. I love the Zoella shower gel too! I wasn't expecting it to be as great as it is. I'll have to try the body scrub as it's one of her products that I haven't picked up yet.

  12. I love the ABH dip brow too, I use it everyday and it works wonders! Also use the silver shampoo a lot too as I love my hair to be ashy and silvery looking and hopefully dyeing it silver tomorrow! Really want to try Zoella's new range :)
