My Favourite Products This Month; July!

Wow, so here we are again, it's already the end of the month! I think it's absolutely crazy how fast time is going but for beauty lovers, that means we've got loads more amazing products to talk about which is good! It also means that we're getting even closer to Christmas already, before we know it, I'll be writing Christmas favourites, now that really is a scary thought. Without further-ado, it's time to talk to you about my favourite products this month... 

the body shop honey mania hand cream
The Body Shop Honeymania hand cream - okay, I love this, truly. I mainly love this because it smells like honey and honey scented things are my weakness. I don’t actually use that much hand cream but this is perfect for me because it’s so tiny. I love miniature products because it means that they're perfect for travelling and perfect to throw into my bag. When using The Body Shop products I always feel like I’m helping a good cause too because this particular one is made with community fair trade honey from Ethiopia!  

models own scratch and sniff nail polishes sweet
Models Own Scratch and Sniff nail polishes: Oh my gosh, whoever invented these clearly knew that young girls love sweets, I know I do anyway! These are my three favourite colours from the collection so far. I love 'rhubarb and custard' which is a deep sparkly red, 'pear drops' which is a gorgeous glittery pink and 'gum ball' which is a really nice playful pink.  These are sweety scented polishes and you can scratch the top off to see how yummy they smell. I personally love the smell of the gum ball one best! Full review coming very soon.  

transformulas hydration gold
transforumulas hydration gold

Transformulas Hydration Gold Radiance Crème: This product is to die for, it is the most gorgeous highlighter ever, plus, it’s de-ageing and hydrating with 23 carat gold inside it, the poshest highlighter ever? I use this as a highlighter and love it so much because it has the nicest, summery, bronzed sheen to it plus it’s good for me too - goodbye wrinkles, hello Kim Kardashian shimmer! You can buy this from FeelUnique here.

argan 5 morroccan rose body wash

Moroccan Rose Nourish & Renew Body Wash by Argan+: I actually went to an event with The Body Shop the other day and learnt all about how amazing argan oil is. I have been loving using this this month and unfortunately it's run out now! It's not often that a body wash impresses me (a body wash is a body wash after all!) but this is such a lovely, silky nourishing body wash that I just had to include in my monthly favourites. 

Superfood LX Cosmeceuticals Intelligence Advance Hair Nutrient Complex: This featured on my June favourites post but I just had to feature it again. I now officially swear by this hair mask, it makes my hair feel completely rejuvenated and replenished. You can actually see my hair after using (and hear me talk about it more) it on my June Favourites YouTube video here. 

rodial instaglam eye brightening concealer
rodial instaglam eye brightening concealer swatchRodial Instaglam Eye Brightening Concealer: I am a big lover of any sort of eye brightening product. I always seem to have bags under my eyes (not enough rest) so this is perfect for me. It can also be used as a concealer too! I personally like to use it under my eyes as it isn’t too thick or heavy, it feels nice and soothing actually. This is a really light colour (01) and I love that because it means that it really brightens my under eye area and instantly awakens me. This contains hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth too. You can buy it from Selfridges here. 

LAQA&Co Lip Lube –
LAQA&Co Lip Lube – I’m really not too keen on the name of this but name aside, I love this as an alternative to lipstick and lipgloss. It’s like a nice light tint and my favourite lip colours are corally/orange shades so this colour is perfect for me. I actually got this with this months Birchbox – you can actually get your first Birchbox here for just £5 using promo code BBX5EMTALKS up until the start of August - thank me later! You can buy this lip lube from the Birchbox site here too if you like the look of it.

Sephora Gold Shimmering Oil
Sephora Gold Shimmering Oil: Oops so I may have bought this on my trip to Paris. I picked it up, smelt it and couldn’t resist. It has such a yummy, fresh coconutty smell to it and it just makes my body glisten. So it makes me smell amazing and it makes my skin so hydrated and shimmery. The perfect Summer must have.

Bourjois Cream Blush 05Bourjois Cream Blush 05 – This is the dream Summer blush. It's such a lovely bronzed blush and actually, I'd probably use it as more of a bronzer. I feel like this completely brings my face and cheeks to life, I absolutely love anything that promises to make me look more bronzed facially, this is the product but it's better than normal bronzers because it's such a gorgeous colour and it's such a nice creamy consistency.  

What are you loving this month? Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to?

Lots of love, Em x

  1. You always manage to make me want everything you talk about Em! The hand cream sounds lovely, I've heard so much good stuff about The Body Shop recently and it's been ages since I visited. Love the sound of those Model's Own polishes and the highlighter too x

    What Rachael Wrote

    1. Haha, oopsy sorry! It really is amazing - my number 1 hand cream and I'm not even a massive hand cream lover! The Body Shop is just taking over the world at the moment, release after release, everything just gets even better! xxx

  2. Tell me about it Em?! I can't believe the summer is flying by... Not long until I'll be heading back up to uni in Leeds for the next semester. Crazyyyyy!
    My mum actually bought me the Body Shop Honeymania hand cream a few weeks ago, I thought nothing of it for a week before finally trying it.
    I'm so glad that I did. It is an utter god send for your hands and the smell is utter bliss.
    Can't recommend it enough!
