August Favourites 2015

August Favourites 2015

Another month is over and we are only a few months away from a new year. It is crazy, can’t we just slow down the time and enjoy the summer more…? Let’s talk about my August favourites…

My August Favourites 2015

First let’s dig into skin care products. This is also an old favourite of mine. When I don’t feel like putting much makeup on, but want my skin to look good, then I use L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser. My skin feels silky soft and it gives me radiant glow. It has silica in it, so if you don’t like the products with silica (silicon dioxide) in it, then you wouldn’t like this one. For a clean face before going to bed, I can say my favourite is Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It cleaned my makeup/skin well and my skin was so soft afterwards, what else can I ask for!

For makeup I only have two products. This month I mostly went for a natural look. Max Factor Cream Puff Blush in the shade of 15 Seductive Pink is so pretty and it gives really nice pinkie colour to my cheeks. I can wear it with or without foundation and it would still look nice. One of my August Favourites is Soap&Glory One Heck of a Blot. You can read more about this product in my post Let’s Talk Powder. I’ve used it a lot when I felt my skin was acting up and I needed to stop the shine. It really helped it.

Being a student for so long taught me to look for budget, but good products. You’d be surprised what you might find for really affordable prices. This is one of the items I came across so long ago that I keep buying it from time to time. It is a body scrub Treacle Moon, not only I really like the scents of their body products (I love strawberries and anything smells like strawberries), but also how soft it makes my skin. It leaves my skin really moisturised and scent stays for a while too. As far as I like Lush, Body Shop and Soap&Glory, this is one of the products that I like using especially when I have a limited budget.

My last August Favourite is Essence Effect Nail Polish. In August I kept adding some glitters to my nail polish routine and this one has such pretty glitters and tiny sparkling pieces. When I applied it on my nail polish it just looked so pretty.

These are my August Favourites… Have you used any of these products, if so what are your thoughts about it?

    I love the micellar water, use it daily, I have the green one at the moment, but not really noticing much difference from the pink, but either way they are good 🙂

    Been looking at the maybelline puff blushes for so long, every time I go into the boots I swatch it! Should maybe just buy it already! 🙂

    Love the post!

    • Micellar water is really good, I use it daily too and my skin is so soft and well cleaned. That blush is so pretty, I kept swatching it then ended up buying it. You should definitely go for it 🙂 xx

  • Love that micellar water and the powder, both great picks!

  • Gorgeous photo and this is a lovely round up of products!

  • I love the micellar water, but find I still need to wash my face afterwards either wise I feel sticky.

    • Yeah I do that too, can’t do it without washing my face x

  • Honeypot Blogs

    Love the micellar water and very nearly bought that blusher in Seductive Pink but I opted for Lovely Pink instead!xx

    • It was a tough decision for me too. Swatch everything like many times before I made a decision, all the shades are so pretty xx

  • I love Garner Micellar water..maybe even more than is so cheap!

  • rae

    What is silica exactly, and why do some people not like it? Love the packaging though for this L’Oreal product – quite impressed, it looks very high end.

    • Some people consider it dangerous even tho the one that’s used in cosmetic products are harmless. I don’t exactly know why tho. I like the packaging, it looks good x

  • ohhh loving the products you are using! I’ve never tried any of time but now I might have to make a run to sephora and try them out! Thanks for posting!

    • They are good and I like using them. You might like them too 🙂 xx

  • Love the sound of the Loreal product – it’s something that I’ve been wanting to buy but just haven’t gotten round to yet!

    • Thank you so much! This cream is really good, makes my skin so soft and well hydrated xx

  • I am always tempted by this product every time I am going to the supermarket, especially because it sounds like a good, affordable product, would you say it is more a moisturizer or a beautifier?

  • Swati Sharma

  • I really love essence nail polishes! They’re budget proof, so I can get a lot of them at once (without burning a hole in my wallet) and they have a bunch of cute ones!

  • I’m with you: would love to slow down time so that I can enjoy summer more!

    I haven’t tried any of these, but I’ve heard great things about the Garnier micellar water and Soap & Glory powder! While I probably have enough powder to last me till kingdom come, that micellar water is definitely on my to-try list when I run out of my stock!

    • Good old summer days…
      Garnier Micellar water is a good one, it removes the makeup well and doesn’t dry out my skin which I really like about.

  • paula

  • Emily Valentine Parr

    love the garnier miceller water. Is that a mini i spy as well? I may need that for my upcoming travels!

    • It is a travel one as I didn’t want to get the full size and end up not liking it. It is so handy x

  • Gorgeous favourites, I love Seductive Pink I have to agree the colour is so pretty and just lifts your complexion 🙂 I do love the Garnier Micellar water but since trying the Bioderma I have made the switch haha.

    Charlee XO | CharmedCharlee

    • I haven’t had a chance to try Bioderma yet but heard great things about it. I will definitely give it a try :)xx

  • I used to love the L’Oreal Skin Perfection range a few years back, it always left my skin feeling lovely. Garnier Micellar Water is my all time favourite makeup remover before going in with a cleanser x
