July Favourites

There's a couple of products I've really been enjoying recently and have found myself reaching for nearly everyday..
Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder. This powder has been a life saver the last couple of week since the weather has heated up. The powder is finely milled and colourless and does a great job at mattifying and setting make up in place. It leaves a velvety soft veil across the skin and helps lock make up in place and makes it last all day, even in the sweaty heat we've been having!
The Body Shop Pomegranate Firming and Refreshing Eye-Roll-On ( wow what a long name) has been my eye treatment of choice. The cooling steal roll-a-ball is refreshing and cooling on the eye area and gives just the right amount of hydration my eyes need. And because it's in a roll-a-ball I find it really quick and easy to use and actually enjoy that part of my skincare routine now as it helps wake me up in the mornings leaving me feeling refreshed and awakened.
Mario Badescu 'Drying Cream' This spot cream is great at drawing out under the surface blemishes and drying them up without drying out the skin. The cream contains Aloe which helps keep the area hydrated so you don't end up with the horrid flaky halo around spot. It can also be used during the day under make up. The flesh coloured cream conceals spots and leaves a productive barrier over them to help disguise and wave goodbye to them more quickly.
FaceB4 Anti-Bacterial Face Wash*. I've only been using this for a couple of weeks but have really loved the light foam cleanser that has really helped clean my skin without drying it out. Since using this I've found my skin as become less blemish prone and any spots I do get tend to disappear a lot quicker! Like I said I've only been using it a short time but so far so good and I'll keep you posted with a full review in the future.
Zoeva 228/Crease Brush. I absolutely love this brush! Its slightly tapered end allows me to define the crease easily, and the super soft bristles blend out the colour effortlessly. I find I use it for every make up look whether I opt for something dramatic or natural this brush allows me to do it with ease and precision.
Becca Mineral Blush in 'Flowerchild'. This is a really subtle peachy coral shade with just a tint of goldie sheen that looks perfect with any make up look, and a nice natural summer blush shade that lifts the face without looking over done.
Nude Lips. I've really been getting into nude lip shades at the moment since I found two that I think really suit my skin tone. DHC Premuim Lipstick in 'Rose Gold'* is a peachy nude in a glossy finish that is so easy to wear and feels so moisturising on the lips. Illamasqua 'Rosepout' is a warm pinky nude in a satin finish which I find isn't too nude or pale for my skin tone and a shade I find works really well.
