Beauty favourites – July ’17

I’m not planning on making this a regular posting, but these are a handful of beauty(ish) products that I’ve been absolutely loving lately!

Yes to – Cucumber Micellar Cleansing Water

I absolutely love this cleanser, it’s really gentle so is fantastic for sensitive skin and has a really handy pump system that makes it really hygienic. This gently removes makeup, cleanses and refreshes skin without needing to rinse afterwards (which can be a huge pain). A big thumbs up to this from me!

Darphin – Masque hydratant au kiwi

I live by this, honestly, my skin misses it if I don’t use it for a couple of days. My sister-in-law to-be bought this for me and I haven’t looked back since! This is a mask without the nuisance of having to peel it off, or spend 20 minutes scrubbing at your face with a flannel. Simply apply on your face and neck onto dry skin, relax for three to five minutes and remove any excess with a tissue. I tend to use this three or four times a week but it’s completely up to you, the bottle simply says ‘use as required’. This is slightly more pricey than your regular face mask, but it’s worth the extra pennies.


Sanctuary – Signature Sanctuary diffuser

This is Sanctuary’s signature scent, and it is an absolute classic. I also have it in three different sized candles so my whole house smells of this beautiful, mellow, warm scent.


Maybelline – Master Strobing Liquid

This is a new addition to my make-up bag, but one that I love, it’s highlighter to the absolute extreme, currently at an introductory price of £8.99 at Boots and other drug stores. In my opinion it’s a bit much for a regular day at work or school, but perfect for a night out or big occasion.


Bastiste – Natural and light, bare, dry shampoo

You’ll all have a dry shampoo that you trust and probably use on a regular basis, but this definitely deserves a try if you find your regular dry shampoo is too heavy, and leaves a white residue. This still does the trick, but eradicates that claggy, heavy feeling of the regular versions and isn’t half as visible.


Benefit – Hoola

I think half the female population own this bronzer, but they do for a reason. It’s warm without an over-the top shine and blends like an absolute dream. For those who are painfully pale like myself, Benefit have just brought out ‘Hoola Lite’ in a lighter shade – I’m yet to try it so let me know what you have if you’ve popped it in your basket!
