July Favourites

Here are my favourite products from July....

Clarins Lip Gloss
-I love this lip gloss, it's probably my favourite lip gloss ever in fact! The colour is so natural that I can wear it anytime. It's also really moisturising and it tastes amazing- absolute perfection in my book! (Read my full review here).

Barry M Mint Green Jelly Nail Polish
-I have used this bright, mint green nail varnish at least twice in July- a rarity for me as I usually leave quite long gaps between using the same nail varnish. It's such a gorgeous, summery colour, and it goes with so much. I love it; it's a really easy way to make a bold statement with your nails at a purse-friendly price. 

Clarins Fix It Spray
-Due to the extremely hot (and nice!) weather in July I felt that my makeup needed an extra bit of help to stay in place all day. This Fix It spray from Clarins acts as a sort of hairspray for your makeup, keeping it on longer. It comes out as a spray-mist and is really refreshing. I sprayed it every morning after appling my makeup and it certainly made a difference. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer
-I cannot apply fake tan to my face at the moment as I'm getting quite a few spots and do not want to create any more, so this bronzer has been used a lot by me to create a lightly tanned, healthy glow on my face. It stays on all day and simply makes me look much better! (Read my full review here). 

Clarins Fake Tan
-Not a fan of sun damage, I rarely give my skin a chance to burn or tan properly so a little bit of harmless fake tan is a summer essential for me. This one from Clarins not only smells lovely (cocoa butter!) but it is moisturising (perfect for the summer!) and it never streaks- what more could you ask for in a fake tan?! I always apply it with a mitt to ensure it stays streak free- this one was from Bodycare and cost £1.99. (Read my full review here).

Clinique Powder
-This is a holy grail product for me; it's always in my handbag for touch-ups whenever I need it. Due to the hot weather, I found myself reaching for this powder more than ever and it ensured that my face was always evenly covered and matte. (Read my full review here).

Charlie Body Spray
-This bodyspray is so refreshing, it's been lovely having it in my bag to cool myself with and ensure that I smell nice when out and about. I love the smell of the Charlie bodysprays, this one and the pink one are my faves :) (Read my full review here).

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil
-This has been a godsend over the last couple of months. It takes all my makeup off (including eye makeup and tough mascara!) in one wash. I simply rub it into my dry face and then wash it off with water. It's so gentle, it doesn't sting my eyes at all and, best of all, it's so quick and easy. I can't live without this cleanser now!

So these are my favourite products for July, what do you think of them? What have been your favourite products this last month?


  1. I'd really like to try the Clairns fake tan! Love the Nars Laguna bronzer too as I can't really tan my face at the moment either! Great post! :) x

    1. Aw, it's really really good! I've tried a few Clarins ones, they all produce excellent results- I won't use any other fake tan now! And Nars Laguna has become a holy grail product for me now :) x

  2. I love the Barry M colour, I was thinking of getting that myself - it's so pretty :)

    1. I know it's gorgeous isn't it?! So bright and bold. I'm thinking of getting more Barry M gellys now :) x x
