With June been and gone it’s time for another favourites post. I tried lots of new beauty products recently so this months favourites is definitely beauty dominated. So lets just jump right in.
I have discovered some new makeup products this month one of which is the Benefit Porefessional Mattifying Primer, which I have been loving especially in this heatwave. Wearing a primer on hot days, for me, is essential to keep my makeup in place all day and mattifying my skin too. I’m not a great fan of primer that feels siliconey on the skin, but I love how this makeup makes my skin look so I can look past how it feels on application. I have this product in a travel size version so its perfect for traveling and a great way to test out the product.
Another Benefit products I have been loving for brows is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. This is the only product I use on my brows and it’s so quick and easy to use. I like having my brows looking really natural so I just use this product to fill in any gaps in my brows and I’m done. This products has a waxy consistency, which means it’s really easy to apply and it doesn’t budge until your take you makeup off.
My next makeup favourite is the Nude by Nature Natural Glow Loose Powder in 01. I received this product in my Christmas advent calendar and put it in my makeup stack thinking I was never going to use it, as I tend to not use bronzers, I was wrong. I starting using a bit of bronzer last month for more of a summer glow and have been loving this Bronzer. I love that this bronzer is quite a warm brown, so you can get away with not wearing blusher, and it has a good pigment too. I do find this product can be messy so I’m just very careful when I put the product onto my brush. I’m really impressed with this product and now want to try some more products from there range.
Moving onto nails and my current go to topcoat is the Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat. I love wearing nude nail varnishes in the summer, especially when I’m on holiday, but my one pet hate is when they start chipping after a day. I tend to use nail varnish brands like Nails Inc, OPI and Essie as their nail varnishes are long lasting and so easy to apply. The next thing I do is use my trusty Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat, as its a quick drying top coat that adds lots of shine and makes your nail varnish last longer. This product is about £15 but its well worth it, and it lasts for ever too.
I have a love hate relationship with body lotion, I hate applying it but love how soft it leaves my skin. With that in mind its amazing that a body lotion has made it into my favourites, as it means I absolutely love it and have been using it all month. Champneys Summer Bream Rewarding Body Lotion is an absolute dream for the summer month. It smells of summer fruits and the scent stays on your skin for hours after applying it. It’s also the perfect consistency for those hot days, it has a cream texture (that’s not too thick) and sinks into the skin really quickly. My skin feels so soft and hydrated after using this product and I just cant get over the smell.
When it comes to soft feet one of my tricks is to use a foot cream daily, after a shower. I recently received the Australian Bodycare Foot Treatment, and thought I would give it a go. I have been really impressed with how soft this make my heels and how good it smells too. For some reason all the good foot creams I have used have mint in them, which I don’t mind. I tend to use a good amount of the cream, put it all over the underneath of my feet and then put socks on to let the cream sink into my feet. In the morning my feet feel so silky soft.
Do you have any product you have been loving recently or any products you suggest to try out next?
