Monthly Favourites / June

As if we're already in July! Where has the time gone? I started June by finishing my uni exams, and then followed that up with a trip to Bulgaria, coming back and finding out that I got the results I wanted! I'm now filling my time by working, volunteering at the local animal sanctuary (I want to take all the dogs home with me!) and I'm going through ice-cream like it's going out of style! Anyway down to business, here's my monthly roundup....

Soap & Glory Girlingo Body Moisturising Mist - £6.50
With the heatwave that has swept Britain, the last thing I want to do when stepping out of the shower is to slap on a thick body butter, I prefer something light that's going to sink in quickly. Girlingo has a lovely summery scent, that isn't overly sweet. Whilst I would look for a heavier more-intensive moisturiser in the winter, this is exactly the ticket during the summer months.

Fake Bake Amplify Daily Gradual Tan - £18.00
I'm slightly apprehensive when it comes to gradual tans, I find that they can go wrong pretty easily and I can end up looking like a streaky zebra. This product surprised me and I really love it. Besides giving you a natural glow, it works alongside your bodies own production of melanin helping to produce a natural tan, it also acts as a skin primer and helps to reduce the sight of all those bumps and lumps. The fragrance hit me the most, usually with fake tans, they have a particular biscuity aroma, this smells exactly like all the other Fake Bake products, a gorgeous fresh coconut scent.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Coconut - £3.99
This was my nail colour of last summer and I've brought it out again this year. Coconut is a creamy off-white. I've made my love known for Barry M Gelly Hi Shine's known in the past and this one is no different.

Ultrasun Anti-Ageing Sun Cream for Sensitive Skin SPF30 - £20.00
Now I'm only 23 and hardly in need of anti-ageing skincare but I received a sample of this and loved it. I prefer to use a specific suncream rather than a body one for my face and this was the perfect size to pop into my hand luggage. I would put this on in the morning and one application was enough to last the day, I never burnt and was able to develop a bit of colour. An added bonus is it's skin friendly and doesn't give the white cast effect in photos.

What were your favourites during June?

  2. Thank you! Coconut is so good with a tan! The Mist Spray is great for the summer months when you just can't be bothered waiting for a body butter to sink in x
