Ok, I’m a little early but I’m still off work so I thought I would cheer myself up by sharing with you my favourite products in July. I missed this in June so beware this is a bit of a monster catch up! I’ve been lucky enough to try out and discover some awesome beauty/skincare products in July, and have been enjoying some really fruity summer scents. I love this time of year!
Nivea Daily Essentials – Double Effect Eye Make-up Remover 125ml – £3.59 from Boots – Finally I have found an eye make-up remover that works really well to remove all that stubborn black eyeliner and mascara. This product also suits the sensitive skin around my eyes, so is just perfect to me.
No.7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser 150ml – £9.00 from Boots – I reviewed this here, along with the No.7 Beautiful Skin cleansing brush! I am loving this combination and my skin has never felt so clean, soft & radiant.
Seaweed Clarifying Toner 200ml – £8.00 from The Body Shop* – I can’t stop raving about this product! I wrote a full review of this here, but it’s just perfect for me at balancing my oily/dry combination skin, and is so refreshing in this hot weather too.
Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask 75ml – £4.95 from Amie* – If you haven’t heard of Amie Skincare yet, please do check them out, they offer products created from natural plant and botanical extracts that are free from any nasty chemicals. This mask is just perfect after long hot summer days as the cooling mix of organic peppermint and lime butter is just so refreshing to the skin and leaves it feeling so deeply cleansed.
Nivea In-shower Body Moisturiser 250ml – £2.37 from Boots, Superdrug & most supermarkets – I love this product! When I am working I don’t have time in the mornings to eat breakfast, let alone apply body lotion so this has been ideal for me. You just slap this on in the shower and rinse off, it feels a little like applying conditioner to your skin but soaks in quickly and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised all day.
Vineyard Peach Body Lotion 250m – £8.00 from The Body Shop* – I was super excited to see the Vineyard Peach range is back at the Body Shop. As you can tell from my blog title, Peachy summer scents are my favourites, so I snapped this straight up. I love to use this after a relaxing bath or at the weekends when I have a little more time to pamper myself. It smells so gorgeous and summery. I love the Body Lotions as they are a bit lighter and absorb quickly into the skin, sometimes the Butters can be a bit on the heavy side for me.
Coconut Beautifying Oil 100ml – £9.00 from The Body Shop – this smells so summery! It reminds me of holidays and good times. This oil isn’t just for the body but can be used on the hair and face too. I use this on extra-dry areas and also as a serum in my hair when it goes a bit frizz. A must-have product and a little bit goes a long way, this photo looks like I don’t use it but a few drops are all you need.
VO5 Plump it Up Amplifying Blow Dry Lotion 200ml – £3.69 at Superdrug, Boots or any Supermarket – this has been a haircare staple of mine for months now, maybe even over a year. I’ve had about 3 or 4 bottles of the stuff and always re-purchase it as soon as it runs out. Perfect for heat protection and adding a bit of volume when blow drying, I wouldn’t be without it.
No.7 Gel-Look Shine Nail Colour in Hotting Up 10ml – £6.50 from Boots – this is an amazing summer high shine colour, the best thing about it is one coat is enough so it’s really quick and easy. It lasts well and didn’t chip for about 5 days.
Brush on Radiance 28g – from The Body Shop* – These little pearls are perfect for giving the skin a gorgeous sunkissed glow. It has pink tones so is really flattering on my light skin and not too over the top. I use this on neutral make-up days just for a touch of luminosity. Perfect! 🙂
So, these were my July favourite products! What have you loved in July??
