June Favourites

Throughout June I've being trying a couple of new things here and there whilst using up some forgotten hero's. From rediscovered loves and fantastic new purchases I've chosen my favourites from the month to share with you today.























I've so far being really enjoying the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream which provides light weight coverage for my skin. My skin over the last month or so has being behaving really well so I was finding that I didn't need too much coverage. I treated this to myself after finishing university as for £28 it is a little bit of a splurge, it is however lovely as I've finally found a product that for me does not cling to a single dry area on my skin. This product also provides SPF 30 which adds reassurance during the day, I also find that it gives my skin plenty of hydration. I'll be doing a review of this in the next few weeks so if you're interested please do stop by.

I've mentioned the Boots Extracts Body Butters on my blog before here , at the time I really loved them and nearly a year on my opinion has not changed. At Christmas I picked up from the Boots sale a set of five mini body butters from the Extracts range of which I've finally been using now I'm home from university (I forgot to take them with me), I've actually finished the Honey one above and I've now moved on to the Coconut. These provide my skin with a lovely amount of moisture, leaving my skin looking and feeling so much better. At £8 they're fairly reasonable and seem to always be on some form of offer.

Another love of mine this month has been the REN Clarifying Clay Cleanser* which has become a staple product in my weekly routine. I'll refrain from going into too much detail as I did a review on this only just last week, if you would like to you can find that here. At £18 I would not hesitate to buy this in the future as I truly think it is a wonderful product, amen to REN!

After seeing the Dove Hair Therapy conditioner spray featured on Ghostparties I found myself becoming rather intrigued as I do tend to stick to my normal Aussie leave in conditioner the majority of the time. I wanted to try something new, something that was super affordable too therefore I found myself picking this up in the Edinburgh Boots as for some reason it was unobtainable everywhere I went. This is a wonderful light weight product with a simply divine scent which at first I thought was the best aspect of the product as I wasn't too impressed with the actual results. However, after using this every time I have washed my hair throughout the end of May and the whole of June I have noticed an improvement as my hair feels softer and looks healthier too. At just £3.59 this product is great value for money, a definite re-buy for me.

Last but not least I have switched up from using muslin cloths of an evening to flannels as they retain the heat so much more when washing products off my face....so far so good!

*Clinique and Dove are sadly not cruelty free.
*The REN product featured in this post was kindly sent to me for consideration.

  11. I have to say I was very skeptical about the whole 'CC' cream thing. I suspected companies were going to try and flog us the whole alphabet! But having seen all the positive reviews I think I've been convinced! I'd love to know more about it if you're going to do a review :)

  17. Oh those Body Butters look similar to the ones from the Body Shop! Similar to you, I don't try out too many new things on my hair all the time but I'm always open to new suggestions and I love reading monthly Favorites.

    1. I've never tried double wear but I know that is much more fuller coverage than the CC cream which is really light xx
