July Favourites


Well hello new month – fancy seeing you creeping around the corner again. Luckily for once we’ve had a pretty darn good summer and even after this bout of rain there is apparently sun reappearing on the horizon. It makes such a difference having great weather in the UK and everyone is instantly happy and makes the most of the long warm evenings. This heatwave has resulted in me binning the makeup (ha as if!) and focusing more on non fuss items.

Rituals Happy Budda Shower Foam* – I can’t seem to get enough of this stuff. From the fun shaving foam like lather to it’s delectable scent this is a winner across the board. It leaves my skin super smooth whilst also filling my bathroom with a gorgeous aroma.

Neom Real Luxury Organic Body Oil* – Oh boy is this oil luxury in a bottle! From it’s glass container, luxe white outer box and divine fragrance this body oil oozes class and sophistication. It has the lovely combination of lavender, jasmine and Brazailan rosewood that not only smells incredible, it also leaves my skin silky smooth. This compared with the Ritual Shower Foam means that even at the end of the day my legs have a slight sheen to them and are still as soft as they were straight after application.

Eyeko Brow Gel* – Never before have I thought about using an brow gel or realised how much of a difference a tinted one would make. Either used in conjunction with my Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow Pencil or alone this helps to define my brows whilst setting them in place. The slight tint adds drama after using a pencil or alone gives a soft hint of colour. It also helps to make my brows appear slightly thicker and fuller.

Phytovolume Actifc Spray – Hello volume in a bottle! This heat activated spray gives me intense lift and makes my follicles thick and plump. Without feeling heavy or creating a crisp finish, this works seamlessly into my hair to leave behind a whole lotta volume. So much so I think it is starting to make it’s way to the top spot of my fav volume sprays.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dry Touch Gel-Cream SPF 50* – Before getting this cream I was a bad person and forgo the daily SPF application. I was a fool who thought all SPF’s were thick and sticky and that I didn’t need to pop one on each day. How wrong I was especially when our BFF the sun came out to play throughout almost all of July. This is an SPF game changer as it so super light on the skin, doesn’t leave a white cast and has converted me into a daily SPF wearer.

Philip Kingsley One More Day* – Although I am a lover of Batiste Can in Lace sometimes it’s nice to dabble in the more higher end brands to see how they fair up in comparison. This new release from Philip Kingsley is pretty darn amazing and it’s doesn’t leave a white cast on your hair or feel super heavy after spritzing it all over. It instantly removes any greasy areas and gives you that just washed look without leaving your hair look like a 60s birds nest. If only I didn’t go through cans of dry shampoo so quickly!
