What I've been loving throughout August

I find myself to be having a love hate relationship with favourite posts, yet I continue to do them.
They are always well received, people enjoy them and I enjoy hearing about others peoples favourites
of the month. This month I've found 2 new products I love and rediscovered 3. My favourite thing
about loving makeup and beauty is when you rediscover products that you used to use and fall in
love with them all over again. This month has been pretty hectic and definitely overwhelming, to
say the least, but I've a month I'll remember for the rest of my life. My favourites for the month
have definitely helped make sure I do remember.

At the beginning of the month I was kindly sent some products from Dermalogica. After hearing
people rave about them for years I was so excited to try them out, but I didn't expect to love them
as much as I do. My favourite product is their skin smoothing moisturiser and I actually look forward
to applying it everyday. Since using this my skin has been more hydrated and smooth whilst looking
rejuvenated. Check out my full first impressions review on Dermalogica here.

For years I've been loving the Boots 3 minute wonder cucumber clay mask. I've bought so many
tubes of this that I've lost count and it's the best face mask I've ever tried. For a while I haven't been
using any face masks whatsoever and completely forgot about how much I loved this. For the past
few weeks I have been picking this up once or twice away to give my skin a refresh and boost. I
love the immediate results I see as well as the results over the next few days and weeks.

When I was decluttering my makeup I found a few products that I loved and only had a little left of
or wanted to use again. One of those was the Lottie London Insta filter pore eraser primer stick. I
used to wear this every day and loved how flawless it made my skin look. Overtime I forgot about it,
but a few months ago I made the effort to fall in love with it again. I can definitely see why I bought
a few of these. As this is a primer stick it is super easy to apply, and allows you to have complete
control over the areas you want the primer as well as how much product you want to use. I love
using this on my nose and cheeks to fill in any pores and give me a smooth canvas for my makeup.

It's very rare that I ever look at nail polishes never mind buy one, because I always get my nails
done and I usually just paint my toenails the same colour. After browsing round I was immediately
attracted to the Barry M gelly nail paint in pink grapefruit. They've released some incredible and
bright shades for the summer time and this is one that I had to pick up. It's bright enough that it's
perfect for summer, without being neon, whilst also complementing your skin tone. I can't wait to see
what colours they release for the autumn and winter time, but I already know I'll be picking more up.

I own way too many perfumes, body mists and different types of fragrances, however that doesn't
stop me from buying more. In March Zoe Sugg released her spring/summer beauty range. Out of
the collection I've started using the fruit medley body mist this month. It's super light and airy,
perfect for summer, whilst also having an impactful fruit cocktail smell that lasts all day. Check
out my full review on the beauty fruits collection here.
