July 2013 Beauty Favourites

It's been a while since I did a monthly favourites and I have quite a few products to show you, so I should probably get started otherwise we will still be here next month.

Whenever I have a spare 20 minuets before shampooing my hair, I always pop in a few blobs of this mask, just on the ends. It makes my hair so much softer, you can really tell the difference when you apply your shampoo. My comb just slides right through. It's quite an expensive product, but it's a nice treat for your hair and I'm a film believer in using good quality hair products.

I got a little sample of this moisturiser ages ago and it's still going strong. It's really light considering it has an spf and makes a nice base for make up without leaving your skin feeling greasy. I would love to repurchase this moisturiser when I run out, but sadly it's way out of my price range (sad face) so I'm just going to enjoy it while I still have some left.

Mac Cleanse Off Oil
This is a golden oldie that I'm sure I've mentioned before, but it still works a treat. Whenever I have a lot of eye make up on or just more make up than usual, I always turn to this oil. It completely removes every trace of mascara without irritating my (very sensitive) eyes. Just a few pumps onto dry skin and it transforms into a lovely creamy milk that you wash off with warm water. So easy and it smells good too.

Bumble & Bumble Creme De Coco Shampoo & Conditioner
This duo has been my go-to shampoo and conditioner over the last month, they just make my hair so soft and shiny, plus they smell amazing, like coconuts. I'm a huge B&B fan as I'm sure you know and this set is no exception.

China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer (NOTD)
This nail polish has definitely been one of my favourites this month, it's such a striking unique colour. In fact the majority of the nail polishes I've used this month have been from China Glaze, I'm obsessed with their summer collections.

L'Occitane Plvoine Flora Shower Gel
I'm normally strictly an almond oil girl, but when I fancy smelling a little different I turn to this gorgeous shower gel. It smells amazing, floral which you would expect from the name haha, but it's so fresh, just what you want on a hot day. I really do love L'Occitane shower products they are so worth the price!

Dior Nude Tan Paradise Duo in Coral Glow
This beautiful duo has been my blush/bronzer of choice ever since I bought it. The bronzer is perfect for those of us who are a bit tan challenged, it doesn't make you look muddy. The blush is just a beautiful soft coral, that's perfect for summer evenings.

Nars Radiance Creamy Concealer
If you suffer from quite dark under eye circles I definitely recommend trying this concealer it's one of the best I've tried at camouflaging them. Plus it's, as the name would suggest incredibly creamy, so it doesn't dry out the skin. It's simply amazing! Benefit Erase Paste you have been replaced.

That's all for this month,
Let me know what you've been loving throughout July, and your thoughts on the products I've mentioned.
