August Favourites

September 07, 2014

Boy does favourites time roll round quickly. With last months post scheduled so late (not that this one is particularly timely either), it's no wonder that it only seems like yesterday that I was typing out the deats of July's favourites. Not to worry though, as my 'spendy' ways have quickly led to another accumulation of much loved products to rave about in August's instalment of favourites.

It's a wonder this polish hasn't appeared somewhere on the blog sooner as I've had this bottle for almost a year now. Porchester square has the whole nude nails thing perfected - it translates on the nails as a grey/nude hue with a hint of lilac that is one of the most easy to wear shades that I own. It's been one of my favourites for a while but after dusting it off in august after a few months apart, i've fallen head over heels all over again. Formula wise, it's not bad either, easily applied and an average wear time, however, I am very interested to try the gel version some time soon.

I'm a bit of a germ-a-thobe, so it's no surprise that hand sanitiser is a daily must. The only problem is that my hands have a tendency to dry out ridiculously easily (thanks Dad for the dry skin gene), so the alcohol in most antibacterial gels can be a bit harsh on my skin with frequent use. The Lanolips cream is my newly discovered solution as not only does it kill 99.9% of germs, it also moisturises your hands pretty darn well. A skin and time saver in one. 

I raved about this here so of course it was going to end up in my favourites too. This is without a doubt my favourite cleanser and one I can see myself using for a long time to come. It's improved everything from the texture to the appearance of my skin and made daily cleansing just a little bit more luxurious.

On days when things are looking a little bit dark under the eyes (something that could probably be avoided by not staying up to the early hours binging on episode of One Tree Hill), this is what i've been using to made myself look more awake. Patted on under concealer it neutralises dark circles and discolouration for that extra bit of coverage. I've also found that on days where things a looking a little less 'zombie like', this works well alone for brightening up the eye area.

A shower oil that smells A-mazing and leaves skin feeling A-mazing, what's not to love? (perhaps the price but let's just ignore that for now!). Every time I treat myself to a blob of this, my skin always feels silky smooth and smells pretty good too. I've found that it also doubles up pretty well as a bath oil. I can't deny that it's pricey, but it's definitely a lovely treat that adds a bit of luxury to everyday bathing.
