Monthly Favourites | June 2014

I'm ashamed of myself, I haven't posted in just over two weeks - how has that happened?! I feel like I've neglected my child but I'm back and definitely out of holiday mode now and ready to give my little blog some well overdue TLC! I've been back from my holiday for a couple of weeks now and I've only just adjusted to real life, I'm getting used to having to pay for things again (the beauty of all inclusive!) and I'm just realizing that when you're in England it's not acceptable to walk around everywhere in a bikini and it's definitely not acceptable to have a cocktail at 10:30am so now my heads round that I can start posting again! I'm easing myself in gently with my June favourites - better late than never right?

I cannot recommend this enough for these muggy, sticky days when the thought of a full face of makeup fills you with dread. This is all I took on holiday in terms of coverage and with a bit of concealer you're set. While making you look lovely and radiant it also gives your skin some moisture which the sun just loves to steal from your skin!

I think it's just  universal fact that coconut is the scent of the summer, at the minute I am not spraying or slathering anything on my body unless there is a hint of coconut involved, I'm like a walking Malibu and coke. I must have at some point used every Nspa product but how can I resist when they're something stupid like £4 for two products from Asda and they don't don't scrimp on the amount of product that you get. This Body Butter smells amazing and left me so, so soft and moisturized, sorry Body Shop, you've got some stiff competition!

I absolutely love the Healthy Mix foundation so when I was in the market for a new concealer and I spotted this I had to give it a go. This probably isn't so good for blemishes just the under eye area and it really brightens it up and hides any late nights that may have been had! The only thing that gets me down about this is that it's quite drying but a spritz of Fix plus usually sorts that out.

I used this on holiday after I'd finished lounging by the pool and my skin just drank it up, this is perfect for very thirsty skin. The moisture really held as well, even after a good few hours my face with still soft and full of moisture and the packaging is super cute which - call me shallow- always helps!

Oh my god, the smell of this! It takes everything for me to slap this on my face instead of eating it. I got this as a contour product which I'm really loving using it as, it's a moussey consistency and applies really well and it's dark enough to still be noticeable even when you've got your tan on. The only thing is that it sometimes can look a little orange which is putting me off using it as an all over primer like it's meant for in fear of being mistaken for an oompa loompa so I'll stick to using it to give me some cheek bones!
