July Favourites

July Favourites

We’ve reached the start of a new month which means it’s time for another monthly favourites! Let’s get straight into it.

First up we have the Essano Moisturising Cream Cleanser. I received this in a priceline gift bag last month and I have been loving it! I’ve never tried a cream cleanser, as I’ve only used foaming cleansers before, and let me tell you I have been missing out! Some cleansers can be very harsh and drying on the skin but this one is very gentle and hydrating. Perfect for winter.

Another skincare product I’ve been enjoying this month is the Sukin Night Cream. Again, this was in the gift bag and I am definitely going to repurchase it once I’ve used it up. I don’t have super dry skin and I’ve found that night creams are generally quite thick and tend to just sit on my skin and not absorb because I don’t need that intense moisture. This one however is the perfect consistency for me and leaves my skin so soft and smooth the next morning.

I put an order in with Colourpop cosmetics last month and I have been loving the products I got. I have been particularly impressed with their eye shadows. They are so pigmented, soft and blendable. My favourite this month has been Full Zip. It’s a matte cream/off-white shade and I have enjoyed wearing it all over the lid for a simple, quick and easy eye shadow look. Add some winged liner and mascara and I’m good to go! I’ll be doing a review/haul of all the Colourpop products I purchased soon, so keep a look out for that.

 What’s a monthly favourites post without some music? This month I’ve been listening to the Spotify “All Out 00s” playlist on repeat. I grew up in the 2000s, so this playlist is so nostalgic for me as it brings back so many memories from my childhood. Isn’t it amazing how music can do that?!

What have you been loving in July?
