July Favourites

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Candle
I have such a weakness for Jo Malone candles! They can be smelled all around the flat within minutes of being lit, they're such a treat! My favourite is Blackberry and Bay and I was lucky enough to receive this for my birthday from my lovely sister- a firm favourite this month!
Price: £40

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
I took this with me to America and have been using it either every night or every other night for the last two months. You simply put it on after your toner and before you moisturiser as part of your night time routine. A little bit goes a long way and it sinks in very quickly. It's not an oil so it isn't greasy at all which I like. My skin looks so much clearer and brighter since I've been using this, it's made such a bit difference. It hydrates and heals my skin, as well as helping to clear my spots. It's a little miracle worker and worth every penny in my opinion. Yes the price tag is hefty but one bottle lasts absolutely ages.
Price: £43

It was Mum that got me hooked on this oil, and I can't thank her enough. We've always loved the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil, it's absolutely amazing at taking off all makeup and is so gentle, but it certainly leaves a dent in your purse (£30 for makeup remover is definitely more than I'd want to pay) but I just convinced myself that it was worth it because no product had ever taken my makeup off so well, so gently and so quickly. Until now! L'Oreal's Miracle Cleansing Oil does exactly what the Shu Uemura Oil does, but at less than a third of the price (about £8 but often on offer in Supermarkets or Boots etc)! Plus it smells nicer! It removes all eye makeup really quickly, without stinging at all. I can't recommend this product enough, if there's one product you buy from this favourites list I'd strongly recommend it be this one. Ah-May-Zing.
Price: £7.99

Clarins Fake Tan
This is a summer staple for me. It's been my favourite fake tan for ages now and I will continue to buy it for as long as Clarins sell it! It's got added cocoa butter so is moisturising, which means that the tan doesn't cling to any dry patched on my legs, and it smells lovely. I always apply it with a mitt and never get any streaks. I usually apply it the day before I want to be tanned as it takes about 12 hours to develop fully. It's really natural looking and I always get lots of compliments when I wear it.
Price: £23

This has been my go to foundation for the last two months. I'd go as far as to say it's my favourite foundation of all time. It's a medium level coverage that leaves your skin looking fresh and glowing but not too dewy. It is so smooth, it literally makes your skin look flawless and lasts all day without needing touch ups (although I do wear primer underneath too). I've had lots of trouble trying to find the perfect foundation and have tried so so many, but this one is by far my favourite. I will stop trying others now, I've found THE ONE haha!
Price: £35.50

Clarins Lipstick in 19 Tropical Pink
This lipstick was part of Clarins's spring collection and it has been my most used lipstick this month by far. I'm always a little unsure about whether red lips suit me and usually a little too nervous to try and pull it off. However, this is the perfect shade for people like me, as it's a blue-toned pinky-red,  and it looks a lot softer than a bright red or bright pink. It's a statement lipstick but it isn't a scary statement, and it looks amazing with a tan. I really really like it, it makes my lips feel fuller and just generally makes me feel prettier!
Price: £19

Nars Orgasm Blusher
This is a bit of a cult product in the beauty world and I finally decided to see what all the hype was about a few months ago. It certainly lives up to it's reputation! This blusher really softens my face and makes me look really healthy. It's hard to describe the changes it makes, it just makes me look better! It's really subtle and natural, it's definitely the best blusher I've ever had and I will certainly be buying this again and again.
Price: £21.50
