June Favourites 2016

June Favourites 2016 | Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Sephora Lotus Mask, theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer, DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom

Six months is over and now we are more closer to new year than the beginning of 2016. Weather is so unstable, one day it is so hot and the next day freezing cold, seriously we should do something about the global warming. Also it is the best time to evaluate the goals, right? June was a slow month for me, that’s why I don’t have many products in June favourites. Β 

In June I was mostly wearing minimal makeup and trying different products to get my skin to decent condition. Some works and some doesn’t work, it is all about experimenting and finding what’s best for my skin.

June Favourites 2016

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

This is the only product I’ve been wearing a lot for awhile. I love how radiant my skin looks in the morning and even though I am not the fan of lavender scent, it makes me sleepy, which I won’t complain. I can say it really improved the condition of my skin and it is a lightweight oil so it doesn’t leave greasy feeling.

Sephora Face Mask

Another skincare products is sheet masks from Sephora. I’ve tried green tea, pomegranate and lingzhi so far and now I have only lotus mask to try out. I can’t really say much about how effective they are (you can’t expect a resuly after one use), but I can say green tea one helped the breakouts. Lotus mask is supposed to reduce the sign of strains and fatigue, we will see how it will go.

theBalm Cindy-Lou ManizerΒ 

You probably already know that this summer it is all about having glowy skin. Even though I was wearing minimal makeup, I made sure to add highlighter to my makeup routine. Ciny Lou is a peachy tone highlighter and it gives a beautiful glow. If you haven’t tried it, definitely check it out!

DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom

I can’t stop wearing light fragrances in spring&summer, they are mus-have products. I seriously can’t handle strong perfumes and I am always on the hunt for lighter fragrances. This is probably the only perfume I wore in June, it is light and smells lovely.

This brings me the end of June favourites. These are pretty much the only things I’ve been using constantly in June. Maybe I can add Game of Thrones as a favourite show, how good was it! Like I said there wasn’t much going on in June and I guess it will be the opposite in July, let’s wait and see!

How was your June? Do you have any exciting plans for July? What are your June favourites?

Hydration Boost - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

  • Shwetali

    I have not used any of the product from your list but i really wanted to try

    Kiehl’s products πŸ™‚
    http://notsohardtobepretty.com

    • Kiehl’s is a good brand, you should definitely try some of the products.

  • I used to love a few Kiehl’s products, when I lived in NY I could go to the original Kiehl’s store. I got used to not having it in the U.K. but I can order it online now, I keep hearing good things about this serum! I haven’t been wearing much makeup either as my skin has also been playing up. I have that DKNY scent too, it is nice and light! I am also loving the Body Shop Fig for a summer scent, so pretty!

    • There are a few other products I want to try from Kiehl’s. The ones I tried are really good and I love how good my skin gets when I am consistent.

  • Yiotou_La

    I regret not purchasing at least one Sephora sheet mask to try when I was in Sephora in Athens. I see many great reviews and I know my skin would love them. Great picks, have a nice weekend πŸ™‚

    • If you get a chance, definitely purchase πŸ™‚ Sheet masks are good and also not that expensive. Have a great week πŸ™‚

  • Lovely picks! I’ve received the Orchid Sephora mask in the mail today, I’m looking forward to trying it, everyone seems to enjoy their sheet masks lately!

    http://fannyanddailybeauty.com

    • Let me know if you like it, it is the only one that I have left and soon I will be using it.

      • I used it two days ago, it was great, but, as often with masks, the benefits it gives to my skin didn’t last very long!

  • Faye Fearon

    Lovely post and great photographs dear, thanks for sharing!

  • La Veine

    It’s a shame that The Balm is not available in Portugal, I wish I could try some of their products! There’s always the option of buying online, but when it comes to makeup I like to try it before πŸ™‚ xx

    • I don’t like ordering makeup products online, I want to test it before buying it πŸ™‚ x

    Nice list of stuff for your favorites.I love the pictures.So lovely

  • July is the moving month, so I have lots planned, but I feel like it is going to be stressful rather than exciting.

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    • Good luck to you! I feel like it will be the same for me. Moving and settling in and so on, there are so much to do!

  • I’be been wanting to try the sephora face mask, everyone says it works very well!

    Have a wonderful day, xx

    My Vogue Style | http://www.myvoguestyle.com

    • I only tried a few of them and they were good, you should give it a try.

      Have an amazing week x

  • DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom is one of my all time favourite fragrances but I haven’t had a bottle for a long time, I should definitely repurchase it! x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • Summer is here and it is a perfect excuse to get it πŸ™‚ x

  • I have nothing to watch now that GoT is over! I’m slowing catching up on Weeds on Netflix though.
    MRC is one of my favourite oils as well!

    Advaita | Blush Canvas

    • Now it is a waiting time for GoT and all my other shows are on a break too, I don’t know what to watch!

  • I love the Kiehl’s midnight recovery range, everything in it is so good… and I just adore the smell!

    XoXo,

    Tamara – LoveofMode.com

    • That range is good, I love how good my skin feels πŸ™‚ x

  • June was a bit of a slow month for me, too! One of my favorite products was the Sephora Wonderful Cushion Matte Lip Cream in Wonderful Fuchsia. So comfy on the lips!
    http://carolinapage.eu

    • Fuchsia is definitely your colour, you rock it πŸ˜‰

  • Sarah Laird

    Fab favourites – I’ve tried one or two products from Kiehls and loved them so I like the sounds of the recovery concentrate πŸ™‚ And I know what you mean about the weather – it just can’t make its mind up! x

    Viva Epernay | GlossyBox Giveaway! | Vote For Me – Beauty Blogging Awards

    • I have only tried a few products from Kiehl’s and they are good, there are a few others I want to try. x

  • I must be the only person who has yet to purchase Mary-Lou Manizer. I’ve been loving Becca Champagne Pop a lot in June, started using it again and I wonder why I stopped at the first place.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Champagne pop is on my wishlist for so long and now I’m lusting for the palette, I hope I will manage to get my hands on it.

  • Love your favorites this month! I’m a huge fan of the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate so I would say it’s a fave this month as I have been rotating it along with another face oil heavily this month. I need to try those Sephora face masks, I’ve been hearing good things about them.

    Ann-Marie | http://facetocurls.com

    • Midnight recovery concentrate is one of my favourite oil, I love how lightweight it is!

  • The Sephora face mask sounds like a good deal , I might have to try it out because sometimes I get acne breakouts. Great stuffs you have here.Have a lovely weekend dear.

    http://www.stylenbeautylounge.com

  • That sephora mask sounds so good! I have to try it

    http://www.blossomikebana.com

  • Do you buy the Sephora masks online or wait till you go abroad to get them?

    • I got them from Istanbul, I still haven’t made any online Sephora shopping.

  • Love Be Delicious! I have the Kiehl’s oil too and love how non greasy it is but don’t see many results with it unfortunately!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • Well I still haven’t seen many results but I love how soft and bright my skin look so I won’t complain about it.

  • I just can’t get used to the Sephora sheet masks. They are so wet and sticky, it’s a pain to use! I tried once and thought I would never do it again haha.
    I don’t have any particular recommendation this month, I’ve been using minimal makeup as well and basically the same products all the time. I have started using the Serozinc spray by Laroche Posay, I hope it’ll improve the condition of my skin! πŸ™‚

    • I love the wet formula and I leave it on my skin until it doesn’t feel wet any longer πŸ™‚ I hope you will love serozinc, it might be a little bit drying but then it helps with the spots and also mattifies the face πŸ™‚ x

  • I’ve heard so much about that highlighter, one day I’m just going to have to splash out and buy it! Love the photograph in this post!

    alicered.co.uk

    • It is beautiful, I love the glow it gives. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

  • I really can’t believe that we’re closer to a new year than the beginning of this year. Time is slipping by so quickly! I really need to try the Kiehl’s Concentrate! I still have so many skincare brands I want to try. My wishlist is way too long haha.

    xx

    Nida | Caked To The Nines

    • My wishlist is getting way too long too and I couldn’t get many things as I will be moving in a few days so I don’t have to carry many products just because I only have limited weight allowance. Once I settle down then it will be time for shopping πŸ™‚

  • I’m a fan of Mary-Lou Manizer but I haven’t tried Cindy-Lou yet! Does it have the same super fine texture?

    Beaumiroir

    • Texture is exactly like Mary-Lou, Cindy-Lou is more on peachy tone tho.

  • Ela, thanks for such a great post! Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is actually one of my favourite products; I’ve been using it for almost a year now and I just love how my skin looks in the morning:) I never tried Sephora masks though, and I am curious to find out what will be your final verdict on these. Have a great weekend!

    Yuliannova

    • Midnight recovery concentrate is becoming my favourite too, I love how soft and bright my skin gets πŸ™‚ Have an amazing weekend!

  • The sephora face masks are so great! I haven’t tried the lotus one or the tea tree one but it sounds amazing πŸ™‚

  • I will have to give the Sephora masks a go next time, love using sheet masks (I just can’t justify the price of it compared to Asian sheet masks!) I feel like I haven’t shopped at Kiehl’s forever, need to do a haul sometime!

    • I want to try Asian ones, however I can’t seem to find them in stores and I don’t know which ones to trust online. Until I get my hands on Asian ones, I will be trying out these ones.

  • Liv

    Ugh I don’t know why-I’ve been drinking so much water lately but it looks as if my face is more bland as ever! I think I should definitely look into getting one of those sheet masks. Thank you for your recommendations πŸ™‚
    Olivia | THE TASTEMAKER

    • Drinking water is one way of improving the skin condition, especially in summer πŸ™‚

  • Jackline A

    I really like Kiehl’s products, I may have to try the Midnight recovery

  • Hannah Ucol

    I love The Balm, their face products are so pigmented…so I don’t blame you for liking the highlighter πŸ™‚ I don’t have it, but I have the Bahama Mama bronzer that I use regularly, and some of the blushes

    Hannah
    Floraful

    • Bahama Mama is one of my favourite, it gives such a natural finish πŸ™‚

  • I heard about Kiehl’s a lot, does this one serves as moisturiser?

    http://www.busyandfab.com

    • You can use it by itself or use moisturiser afterwards too, it all depends on how intensive skincare you want.

  • I love The Balm’s highlighters. I have and use all three! Those Sephora masks are delightful.

    • I was tempted to get Betty-Lou too but then changed my mind.

  • elles

    I’ve heard so much about the Sephora masks, I wish we had one in the UK!

    • They are good! I hope Sephora will open a store in the UK too! x

  • I’m not a big fan of the changing weather I feel like I should of gone out in a playsuit one minute and in a wooly jumper the next ! I love the dinky scents they’re so light and perfect for summer ! I’ve been loving collections new primer , it’s as good as most expensive primers I’ve tried but is only Β£5 !

    lots of love, Marianne xxx

    • I hope the weather will actually get warm and there will be some sunny days! It is summer and there shouldn’t be cold rainy days πŸ™‚

  • I heard a lot about Kiehl’s products. I’m really tempted to give them a go.

  • The Sephora masks look great I can’t wait to try some when I go away this month and can finally shop in a Sephora!

  • I’ve been meaning to try the Kieh’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate for so long now but never seem to get round to trying it. Lavender is one of my favourite scents and I had the Midnight Recovery eye cream for a while which I liked so I’m sure I would like it if I ever get round to giving it a go πŸ™‚ x

  • Karina GuimarΓ£es Ribeiro

    Very good products, the Sephora mask sounds great for my skin right now. xx

  • Nadia

    That Kiehl’s Concentrate sounds amazing, hon. I was in when I read “radiant skin in the morning” πŸ™‚ Couldn’t agree more with you about trying and experimenting. Every time I try a new product there’s that hope that it will be incredible. It’s not always the case but it helps to find products that work <3
    Hope you have a great July, lovely!!

  • Really want to try out the Sephora sheet masks, every one is raving about them. I would probably try the Green Tea one! Mary Lou is a need for summer, my all time favourite highlight! xx

    Tamz | http://www.throughneweyesx.com

  • I am so desperate to try some of the Lou Manizer range, people won’t stop raving about them and I can’t get them where I live :(. Fresh fragances are also my favorites all year round, so weird since I wouldn’t use anything that wasn’t super sweet before.

  • I really need to try the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I have heard such glowing reviews, it seems like a fabulous addition to a pre-bed routine. Thank you for sharing!

  • Thanks for sharing your favorites, this motivated me to try the Sephora sheet mask that’s currently sitting in my “beauty samples box”. I have the rose one but hopefully it’ll help calm down my breakouts.

I love nighttime oils though, I always find that my skin feels so soft in the morning. I’ll have to look out for this one, as I’ve heard amazing things about Kiehl’s. Also I need theBalms’ Cindy-Lou Manizer, I love the pinky undertone it has. Great picks Ela, adding basically everything to my wish-list now.xx
