Its been a good while since I’ve done a favourites post hasn’t it? For such a long time I wasn’t using any new products, and was very much in a rut. Now I’m here to share what my staples of August have been!
I must note, usually around this time I start thinking about Autumn and getting excited, but we’ve just been hit with a September heat wave, so I’m still in full summer mode.
I found a new beach very close to me, and it’s so beautiful and sandy, I’ve practically been living there.
This is not the longest favourites post I’ve done, but an honest one for sure!
To start, I was having some trouble with my skin as you all may know. It felt like something was missing from my routine and I didn’t know what. My friend Baylee let me try one of her face masks one night and I instantly loved the benefits it had on my skin. It had really helped my problem areas, and filled the void in my skincare regime.
The face masks I bought are by a brand called Freeman, and I got the Renewing Cucumber (great for rejuvenating your skin) and the Sweet Tea and Lemon Clay mask (intense peel for removing impurities) Both of these masks are wonderful and actually do what they say on the label, as well as being a very satisfying peel of mask.
I was first most impressed by the price. I got them on sale for $4.99 each, and at regular price they are $5.32. It’s a great deal regardless considering the amount of product and the quality of it. I’m almost addicted to peel off masks now!
Now I couldn’t do this post without saying what scents I have been wearing for basically the whole summer season.
They are, Waikiki Beach Coconut, and Fiji Pineapple Palm from Bath and Body Works. Both of these scents are fresh and fruity, giving me a little boost of happy whether it’s first thing in the morning or just before going out for a meal. I love wearing them, spritzing them in my bathroom and even in my car.
On the topic of smells, I’ve been burning this candle from Bath and Body Works all August. It smells EXACTLY like fresh apples, and gives me so much joy. I love the apple tree outside my house and the way it smells when the apples are ripe. This candle brings that smell inside my house too. This is just my top pick of many candles I’ve been burning this summer. (Perhaps a summer candle post on its way?)
My last picks are *drumroll* makeup products! Woohoo!
I’ve been so footloose and fancy free the last few weeks I have my skin a major break from any makeup products. But getting back into the game I found two products that I can’t get enough of. Funnily enough both of them I use on my eyes as well as the face. The first is a Bronzer from Ciaté London, and I use it to contour my face. Being so pale I find it hard to find the right shade of contour and I find this one to be perfect.
Secondly I’ve been glowing it up with this highlighter by Luna. It looks like a strange shade, but goes on the skin beautifully, and is a dream for cool skin tones. As you can see they both swatch so easily and last all day.
I hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of summer! Please let me know what you’ve been loving this summer too! And I will talk to you guys soon! ❤️
