I cannot believe July is over and it’s already august! I have only just settled in to the summer weather. But here are a few things I’ve been loving during the month of July:
I bought this moisturiser last summer but sort of abandoned it because it drowned to the bottom of my bath and body products drawer, but I have recently rediscovered it. This is the Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Forbidden Ultra- Moisturising Hand and Body Cream (wow that’s a mouth full). I cannot explain how good this moisturiser smells but on the bottle it says blackberry lily and musk which sounds pretty accurate. As it is summer I’ve been shaving my legs more often meaning my legs (especially my calf area) gets very dry so I needed something that wasn’t too thick but would really moisturise my skin. However I think this is more ideal for the autumn/winter because the does contain musk.
Next I have the Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturiser. I’ve heard a lot of people talk about this, especially on Miss Budget Beauty’s blog and decided I wanted to try it out and I think it’s safe to say that I saw results. My skin has been starting to clear up a and I’m almost positive it’s because of this moisturiser, so I really recommend picking this up the next time you’re in Boots or Superdrug (the drugstore).
I also have a body spray this month and it’s the Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Mini Perfume Mist. I love taking this on holiday because it small but the scent is as strong as a perfume (hence the name)so during the summer I do one or two pumps and I can be out the door. On the bottle it says its blackcurrant and vanilla which I totally agree with.
I have two makeup products, the first is the Sleek Face Form Kit in light and I have loved this right from the beginning but I have recently been in love with bronzed/contoured and highlighted look and the shades in this palette are perfect. However I don’t particularly like the blush, I think it’s a little too shimmery for a blush but it does look great as a highlight that gives a hint of colour.
Lastly I have the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, this gives off a light to medium coverage which is perfect because I’m not quite into the full coverage look especially in the heat. Along with the foundation I really like applying it with the Elf Mineral Foundation brush, it gives a really air brushed, non-streaky finish which I love.
Fashion wise I just have these round sunglasses that I bought at accessorize that I don’t think everyone will love but I really like wearing them with absolutely anything and everything. These rings are from Forever 21 and are just some arrow-like midi rings that featured in a recent blog post.
And for music I’ve been listening to 5 Seconds of Summer’s new album on repeat. I think they are the only songs I’ve been playing for about a week. A few stand outs are: Amnesia, Beside You, Heartbreak Girl and Voodoo doll.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading! (Sorry for the slightly longer post) and comment what you want you’ve been loving recently!
