July Beauty Favourites

July is probably my favourite time of the year, as it tends to be the sunniest and warmest month in the UK. Here's a list of the products I enjoyed the most.

1. To start off, Avène Eau Thermale Water Spray (from £3.15). Sometimes I wonder how I've survived without it, especially in the summer. If you live in London or have visited during hot days, you will know what I mean. The city just isn't prepared for the heat. This has been a life saver.

2. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Limited Edition (£19.50). I only got this product in the 2nd half of the month but I have included it here because it has become my every day cleanser. I use it at night to remove my makeup. If you like the original C&P, you will like this one just as much if not more. I have a full review here.

3. Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (on sale for £8 on Asos). I tried a few CC and BB creams and this was by far the best one. I bought it under the recommendation of Lisa Eldridge (famous makeup artist) and I couldn't be happier. I love that it feels light on the skin but at the same time has quite good coverage and SPF 15. My shade is 32 Beige Clair / Light Beige. As a reference, I'm NW20 in Mac.

4. Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial (£45). This is an overnight oil that leaves my skin looking supple and hydrated the next day. It's not cheap, but I promise you it's absolutely amazing and worth every penny. It can be used by people with all skin types, even oily skin. A must have! 

5. See By Chloe Eau de Parfum (on sale for £31.20 on Escentual) has been my go to perfume. The scent is flowery and elegant without being too strong. Not as long lasting as I'd like it to be but I love the smell so much I don't mind.

6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick (£4.49). This eyeshadow is so good! It goes on smoothly but when it sets it doesn't budge. I have pretty oily lids, still, I don't even need a primer with this. Shade I have is Bluffing, which is a pretty light taupe.  

Tell me what you liked the most in July. Beauty or Non Beauty. :-)

    1. Thank you!!
      I just replied to your private message ;) xx

    2. What is your skin type?
      I have combination which can be a pain sometimes. I have the sarah chapman oil purchased an amazing tsv on qvc and had that it in & cleanser & booster in it. Not tried it yet as I have so much skincare but deals alqqays get me.
      I am Addicted to qvc tsvs as you get great deals get all my elemis from there & other brands too as much cheaper than buying separate products. Ps I do not work for qvc just addicted to their beauty brands x

    3. I've got dry to combination skin. I love the Sarah Chapman oil. People also talk a lot about the booster. I'm sure you will enjoy it, once you start wearing it. I agree QVC has great deals. I've bought stuff from them in the past. :) xx

  6. I love the Bourjois CC cream (as you already know from my post :)) It's such a good product and like you said, great coverage. I didn't know Lisa Eldridge has spoken about it so I'm definitely going to that up! x

  7. The limited edition Liz Earle Cleanser is something I have considered buying, I might wait for the one next year though as I'm swimming in skincare at the moment.
