June Favourites 2013

20130702-112451.jpg
Day 2 of my little July Blog Challenge! I don’t even remember the last time I did a favourites post, so just for something different that’s what today’s post is!

Body:

Original Source Shower Gels. I have been using two different ones, which is kind of weird when I look at them now because they’re so different! I love citrusy fresh smells, especially in the summer so when I shower in the morning I always use the Lime one! The Shea Butter and Honey one is really rich and yummy smelling and I love using it in the evening and then putting on my pjs!

For a moisturiser I am using Nivea at the moment. I always use this moisturiser in the summer time because its light-weight and I adore the smell of it!

I also purchased the Dove Summer Glow. I haven’t used a self tanner in about 4 years so I thought I’d try this stuff out. I was pretty impressed, I only actually used it once but I didn’t turn out looking orange and streaky so that was nice! It does develop like a self tanner though, where you feel like you’ve got a thick layer of moisturiser on and you feel greasy. (Maybe that’s just me) But I do not like that feeling which is why I don’t use self tanner so I won’t be using this as an everyday moisturiser!

Scents:

Lady Million by Paco Rabanne. I always switch between the same perfumes, this is a long time favourite of mine and I’m loving it this month! This is the perfume I wore in Vegas when we got engaged, so it always gives me really happy memories!

I was given a gift of some Yankee candles, and I’ve been using them all around the house lately. It’s incredibly relaxing especially Midnight Jasmine!

Makeup:

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB. I’ve said things about this one before. I use it almost as a moisturise, I just hate putting on make up that makes me look different, I like to look like me except more awake! This does the job and it’s light weight for summer!

Bourjois Volume Glamour in Ultra Black. This mascara was actually a gift from my mom on my birthday but I’m really pleased with this. It doesn’t clump but it does give length and volume.

Nails:

Rimmel 60 seconds in Coralicious. This one is my absolute favourite, it makes you look really tan and put together!

Barry M in Strawberry Ice Cream. This looks best as one coat as it gives a French polish kind of look. It’s really light and girly and perfect for summer.

Hair:

VO5 Plump me Up. This dry shampoo does exactly what it says “boosts body & grip whilst refreshing your style”. If your a mom, you will understand the hair styling dilemma – this is a life saver! It also smells really good, you smell shampooed rather than sprayed…if that makes sense?!

Well that’s about it!! Leave links to your favourites from last month, or comment below if you have anything to recommend!! Thanks for reading…
