June Favourites

Sunday, 1 July 2012 16:31

I can't believe it is the end of the month again! Time is going so quick. This post is going to be my favourite beauty/cosmetic products of the month, I'll explain each one briefly as I go along. I tried to narrow it down to less products than last month, as I know I got perhaps a little over-enthusiastic in May!

I will go from left to right, back row to front row:

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream: I have the shade 'light'. I only started using this product this month as an alternative to foundation for Summer and I love it. I won't go on about it too much, as I just posted a review on it here.

Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream: Recently I have found that my usual favourite hand cream, Soap and Glory's 'Hand Food', hasn't been keeping my hands as moisturised as I would like. I have some areas of really rough skin on my hands and so I need a really good moisturiser to help hydrate my skin and get rid of my 'rhino skin' patches! I find that this does the job perfectly, especially when I wear it at night with cotton gloves.

The Body Shop Beautifying Mango Oil: I use this as a sort of mask treatment every week or so to freshen my skin up a little and I really like it. Again I won't talk about it too much, as I have already posted an in-depth review of it here.

Soap and Glory 'Glad Pits' Deodorant Spray: I have wanted to try this for a while, but it is usually around £4.50 from Boots which is a little pricey for a deodorant. However, certain summer products are on 3-for-2 at Boots at the moment and the 'Glad Pits' were half price! So, I jumped at the chance and bought 3 for the price it would usually have cost for one of them. I am glad I did as it is really good! The scent is quite floral, which I wasn't expecting, but I like it.

Ted Baker Body Spray in 'Origami' Scent: I have had this for a while now and I am completely in love with it. The scent is described by the company as having hints of vanilla, raspberry, sandlewood and rose; I must say I can pick out each of them in the scent. It is so lovely, quite a wintery scent in my opinion, but I still wear it every day! It lingers on the skin for hours, though I do like to top it up regularly.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous Mascara: I have this in 'brown', though the effect it has is quite dramatic and it is currently my favourite mascara. It makes such a difference to the length of my lashes and makes them look full and defined. However, I am not sure if it is discontinued now as I can't find it anywhere and I bought this one for £1 from Pound World! I am kicking myself for not buying a few tubes now.

2True Twist n Line Eye Definer: I can't for the life of me find the shade I have! I can tell you it is a kind of dark, natural green however and there are only 2 green shades stocked in Superdrug so you should find it if you wanted to. I use this on my upper lash line as I have green eyes and it makes the colour seem stronger. It is great with some black kohl liner on the bottom lash line too for a natural look!

Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen: I have used this for about 5 years now! It remains as my favourite black eyeliner, I use it mainly for my lower lash line. It is retractable so it lasts quite a while with no sharpening. However, this is also slightly negative, as it means the nib is a little blunt for the upper lash line or eye flicks.

Boots Essentials Cucumber Wipes: I use these to remove make-up. There isn't much to say about them, except that they are really cheap (often on 3 for £3!) and they do a perfect job, whilst smelling lovely and fresh too.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish: Shade 'Green With Envy'. I have mentioned this before I think, but I am in love with the colour. It looks drastically different in different lights, sometimes appearing turquoise, other times a vivid emerald green. It is just beautiful! The formula is unbeatable too.

Superdrug's 'Little Green Tin' Lip Balm: Well, It is more of a jelly than lip balm, as it is Superdrug's own version of the Vaseline lip tins. I have used this more than my Carmex this month as it just does such a good job of moisturising my lips! It has a delicious apple scent too which just makes me want to eat it! I definitely recommend this as it is cheap and does a fantastic job!

    1. I find it quite light but I haven't got much to compare it too. I have just bought Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum which I hear is great for light coverage! :)xxx

  8. Thank you for commenting & following my blog! I really appreciate it! :) I love that Garnier BB cream, too. Although, the UK version looks a little different in packaging than the US one!

    I really like Maybelline Mascaras (Volume Turbo Boost was my first ever mascara, and I still like it!) so I'm not surprised that the mascara worked well for you!

    I'm following you now, too!

  10. The Body Shop mango oil sounds really fruity and nice for the skin :) I've only tried the Garnier BB cream on my hand in the shop and I wasn't sure about how much coverage it would give. I didn't really like the scent but I've heard quite a few people give positive reviews so I'm tempted to give it another try.
