July 2013 Beauty Favourites
It’s time for July favourites and this month it was very easy to pick the products, as I truly love all of them and have been reaching for them a lot!
So here we go:
I don’t know how many times I’ve mentioned Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan (review) and Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil (review) but I have to do it just once again as they are both fantastic products! Both are not exactly cheap but the best summer investment I’ve made. The self tanner gives my pale skin some colour so that I don’t look like a corpse and the oil moisturizes my dry skin and gives a beautiful glow.
I am not the one to go for shimmer usually but for summer I love it. Plus the oil smells amazing and a little goes a very long way.
When I finish my Xen Tan self tanner I plan to get an even darker version (I also have a Light one, by the way) – Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe Weekly Self-Tan, that is.
Terre d’Oc Milky Make-up Remover Oil
This is such a great cleanser, I absolutely love it (here is why) and I think that Terre d’Oc brand is very underrated, as their products are lovely (at least those that I’ve tried).
111Skin Daily Orbit NAC Y2 – Energising Youth Tonic
I really like this Vitamin C and seaweed enriched toner, I find that it delivers great results, the skin looks fresher, smoother and more radiant. It is actually promised that the product is working to “relieve tired looking skin by regenerating skin cells and rebalancing the pH levels”. I personally love the fact that it is so moisturizing that I don’t even have to use a cream afterwards sometimes (although, I’d probably have to do it in AW). Will have to write a more detailed review about it at some point.
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory
Regular readers probably know that I am not exactly a big fan of shimmering products all over the face most of the time. But in summer I just go for it. I love that glowing, well rested I-am-just-after-holiday effect this product creates. You can see the detailed review and how it looks on the skin here.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache
I think summer is the best time for experimenting with colourful mascaras. I have brown, purple and oxblood in my rotation now and love them all. But this month my favourite has been this beauty from RBR.
Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish in 260 Funtime Fuchsia
Rimmel nail polishes are among the best out there, both hight street and high end. I can never have enough of them. Bright juicy shades look hot in summer and I’ve been wearing Funtime Fuchsia (0n the nails) for the whole week this month. Yes, there were some minor chips but I’ve fixed that re-painting those areas, oops.
And what products did you like this July? Any new discoveries?
