My summer was just hectic between weddings, festivals and parties but I enjoyed every bit of it.
And because of all of the above my blog has suffered a little
but as a wise person once told me.....
"live life..don't just write about it"
So here are a few of the things I have been loving throughout the month of August
I have always loved the Body Shop Body Butter...they are a bit of a cult product and I bet most of you have had at least one in your lifetime. This is the Body Shop's latest collection and I bought the Body Butter and Solid Oil Lip Treatment in Galway whist out shopping with my sister.
Body Butters are a little thicker and creamier than regular body moisturiser and this one just melts into the skin leaving it super soft all day without being heavy or greasy . And guys I cannot tell you how AMAZING this product smells...I have been walking around all month smelling my arm...People are givin' me very odd looks.
It has a gorgeous rich nutty scent but it isn't too overpowering. AMAZING!!!!
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser €17.75
I actually got this last Christmas (Thanks Tracey) but have had so many cleanser to get through I am only getting around to using it now. I am a bit fan of cloth cleanser and usually use a facecloth to remove my Clinique Take The Day Off Balm. So this was right up my alley and it is so easy to use...I just apply about 2 pumps all over my face and use the muslin cloth to remove it. It takes off all my makeup and gently exfoliates the skin at the same time...perfect...What else could you want!!!
Dermalogical Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque €43
I have mentioned this in my favourites many a time before so I won't go into a huge amount of detail. This is simply the BEST facemask for when your skin is tired, hungover, dull and badly in need of a boost. It brightens, tightens, rehydrates, plumps and gives an instant glow. It is just a little miracle in a bottle. Oh and I apply it around the eye area also to help with the little fine dehydration lines (even though they tell you not too)!!!!!
I am a bit fan of Soap & Glory products and this little bottle lives on my bedside locker. I'm not great for applying handcream throughout the day but I make sure to do it last thing at night before I go to sleep. The Soap & Glory Hand Food contains shea butter and macadamia oil so leaves you skin smooth and soft without feeling greasy.
I have been using L'Oreal Elvive NutriGloss Shampoo & Conditioner forever and I just love it. It always leaves my hair soft & shiny perfect for what I want. However in the name of research I decided to invest in some new hair products. So as I was wandering around Boots I spotted these gorgeous blue bottles. Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner not only smell gorgeous but the argan oil penetrates the hair shaft and leaves hair glossy and strong. My only gripe is the bottle are hard to squeeze!! :(
I love a good smokey eye so need a good eye makeup remover at the end of the day. I think the duo phase removers always work a little better and this one does a brilliant job of taking off heavy eye makeup. It removes even waterproof mascara without pulling or tugging at the eye. And its a steal at just over €6
