I feel like I haven’t done one of these in forever, so I feel a little rusty. But, I’ve loved a lot of products this month…
Oh my goodness, September has flown by! I celebrated a birthday earlier this month, paid off all my debt, became a beach bum AND vegetarian. A lot has changed this month and here are the things I loved…
Is it just me or did August just FLY past? I literally blinked and it was over.
What a crazy busy month August was. But at the end of it, I took some well-deserved time off work and it allowed me to relax, get back into blogging more regularly, allowed me to attend product launches and events (like the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo), go interstate for a couple of days (on the quiet, I didn’t want to make a big deal of it) and spend A LOT of time with family, since my brother and I have birthdays close together and have regular coffee dates with my sister in Kings Cross and Potts Point.
Anyway, here are the things I loved in August…
So, here we are at the end of July. It’s been a CRAZY month. Here the things I LOVED this month…
Hello mid-2013! Time has really flown hasn’t it. Urgh, I can’t believe we’re finally mid-year. Crazy!
Here are my favourites for the month of June. You’ll find a lot of these I’ve use at night/before bed. I’m not too sure why, but I hope you enjoy it.
A?sop Oil Free Facial Hydrating Serum, $63.00 (100mL)
This has been part of my night skincare routine for a while now but because it’s become a lot cooler with the change of seasons I rely on it more than ever.
After I’ve showered and done my five minute skincare routine I apply this product before my moisturiser and eye cream and them go to bed. In the morning, my skin is soft, hydrated and clear.
Sukin’s Rose Hip Hydrating Day Cream, $23.95 (120mL)
I’m still in the process of writing a product review on this but I have to include it in my favourites this month without it. This stuff is AMAZING!
This has been my nightly moisturiser of choice and I just can’t fault it. It’s thick but isn’t greasy on the skin, it’s got rosehip oil in it so if you somehow skip your nightly application of it this product has you covered. A little goes a long way and when applied at night your skin is so dewy in the morning.
I’ve even worn this as a daily moisturiser on particularly colder morning (or when I have a very early morning start) and it really helps my skin stay hydrated and not flaky. 120mL jar will last you forever.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Lemon & Chamomile, $9.95 (7g)
I love Jack Black Lip Balm, there has been no secret on this blog about that. I recently treated myself with a purchase of both the Mint and Shea Butter (my all-time favourite) and thought I’d try out the Lemon & Chamomile to see how it goes. I’ve been using this just before bed and by the morning, lips are smooth and soft.
Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish, $38.00 (200mL)
I usually have my showers in the evening and this month I’ve been really enjoying this product to scrub away the crazy day with this. It’s another product I’m going to be doing a product review on in time because this stuff is AMAZING!
I suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (KP) on the back of my arms and I’ve found that this helps immensely with removing that extra skin without being too harsh on the skin and without the use of a loofah.
Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter, $48.00 (226g tub)
After my shower I like to apply this all over my body – particularly on my elbows and arms – and by the morning my skin feels really soft. Especially when I’ve applied my Winter woolies on top and jump into a warm bed.
I’ve done a product review on this if you’re interested.
ColorWOW One-Minute Transformation Styling Cream, $29.99 (120mL)
Now this is something I’m in love with. This was featured in a post I did last week introducing you to the new ColorWOW haircare products. This was one of the most amazing products I’ve tried in a while that helps control flyaways and frizz without making your hair look like it’s caked in product, gel or hairspray.
Inglot circle freedom lipstick; no. 60, $10 (lipstick only)
This has been my most-worn pink lip colour this month, which I often do but more on a weekly basis. I’ve been leaning towards a more truer pink – not a red-pink or even a bright pink (sorry Candy Yum-Yum, you’re just going to have to take a seat for a while). I love how many compliments I get wearing this colour and I don’t even mind that I have to apply it with a brush.
1. Sleepy teas
2. Body scrubs
3. Vodka Sunrises
5. Law & Order: SVU
I’ve been pretty much listening to this all month…
Wow, we’re almost halfway through 2013! Time really flies when you’re having fun, right?
I hope everyone had a crazy-busy but wonderful month. Here’s to June; may it be merry!
April is always one of my favourite months of the year. Mainly because it starts to cool down and the warm knits come out.
Here are my favourites for this month…
