Hi everyone, it’s that time of the month again where I write my monthly favourites. I can’t believe it is June already, I know everyone says this but time is just flying by. One of my favourite things about May was definitely the weather, hopefully we are gonna get a very sunny June to kick start the summer.
Urban Decay Naked Illuminated
This highlighter was a Christmas present last year from my mum because I was obsessed with it from the moment it was realised. I’ve always struggled to find a highlighter that I love but this is it. It’s SO shimmery and glittery which is exactly what I love, it’s not quite an icy highlight which is normally what I look for but I still love it. I feel like such a princess when I wear this so if you love a bright and glittery highlight this product is definitely for you.
Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
It feels like ages ago that I got this mini Benefit skincare set but I love this moisturiser and will definitely be repurchasing. I use this moisturiser in the mornings before I put on my primer and make up as it is perfect because it is so light. I am always a bit unsure of buying skincare products from a brand best known for their make up in case it doesn’t live up to standard. However, I have noticed a big improvement in my skin from using this – it’s might softer and looks fresher.
Marc Jacobs Decadence Perfume
I am OBSESSED with Marc Jacobs perfumes, it’s more or less the only brand I buy because they all smell so amazing. My boyfriend gave me this probably a year or so ago and it smells divine. This bottle with it’s design, scent and name is supposed to be sexy and sophisticated. The top notes of this scent are Italian plum, saffron and iris with hints of Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine and orris root. This is a heavy and long lasting perfume, when I wear this I get many compliments on it as the day goes on. To me, this is the perfect summery scent so if you’re a fan of perfume and want something new this is definitely the one to get.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This is a product I use every single day without a doubt. I used to use my ABH contour kit every day but some of the shades have run low so I save it for special occasions now. This bronzer is the perfect shade for my pale skin. It applies smoothly and is easy to blend. The colour is a medium brown with no orange tones through it which I love. I hate when bronzers have a shimmer to them but this is a perfect matte bronzer. I really didn’t like the brush that came with it so I opt for another contour brush to apply with.
Avon Pore Penetrating Scrub and Mask
I’m not gonna go into too much detail about these products as I am gonna do a specific post reviewing them. I got these in last months Avon books for £5!!!! A total bargain. After the first use of both of these products I saw an immediate improvement in my skin. My skin was a lot softer and looked visibly fresher than normal. The scrub is really grainy and has a really cooling minty feel when you use it on your face which is nice. The mask is great at removing dirt deep in your pores and leaves a noticeable difference once removed. I try to use these products at least once or twice a week.
Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub
This product is halfway between a shower gel and a shower scrub. If I go for a shower and don’t exfoliate and scrub my skin it gets really itchy after a shower, I don’t really know why so I have tried a lot of shower scrubs. This shower scrub is by far my favourite. The texture is grainy and rough enough to exfoliate but not too rough where it hurts my skin. The scent is an amazing citrus smell and this scrub leaves your body feeling softer than ever. A little goes a long way with this product. Recommend to anyone looking for a new shower scrub.
The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter
This product has been a longtime fave of mine from The Body Shop. I use this product once a week because I am not a natural blonde and my hair has been bleached multiple times so I try to keep it in the best possible condition. The Body Shop claim this product will leave your hair feeling soft and tangle free and they are not wrong. After using this and even when I am drying my hair it is still smooth and tangle free. This product has really helped give my hair extra life by making it glossier, smelling better and keeping it in good condition.
I tried out a lot more products in May so I could recommend more products for my monthly favourites. I stuck to beauty and skincare this month as I didn’t watch any TV shows or read any books which stood out to me. I would love to hear if any of you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts on them are, or if you have any questions about the stuff I mentioned please don’t hesitate to ask!
Hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite products this month,
