Woah! We're in September! Which is YAY for me as I go on holiday this month! It's great having the feeling that your Summer is extended! This is why I always try and go on holiday during the Winter... honestly it breaks up the cold, miserable, SAD ridden months no end :))
This month, I've been using A LOT of products. Like honestly, I've went overboard with everything. I put it down to being stressed and when I'm stressed I go in over indulgence mode. Or bake cake. I've been using, without exaggeration five products just for my body when I've been showering! It's been my only 'me time' and I can't feel guilty for general personal hygiene so I've literally stood there for an extra few minutes and washed repeatedly.
However, because I've been using all kinds of things it made picking favorites bliddy hard! And yes I mean to say bliddy not bloody; it's a geordie thang. So anyway, I reigned myself in and chose categories and then picked from there...
Nails Inc Kensington Palace Gardens
In the nails category I picked this peachy pink girly colour. It's a no brainer for those girly days and it's fairly neutral too; I think it's a shade which compliments various colours so it doesn't matter what clothes you're wearing when sporting this.
See... proper girly innit?!
Liz Earle Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil
Considering this is a recent purchase of mine, it has went STRAIGHT to the top of my most loved this month. I have been using it loads! On damp hair before I plait it. On dry hair after straighteners. On dry hair when I've let my hair dry naturally... this tames the frizz. AND I swear it lasts on the hair too. Like if I've straightened my hair then used this on it, my hair does look better and despite it being an oil I've not had the urge to wash it the following day. REALLY like this. A lot.
Bare Minerals Moxie Lip Gloss in Show Off
Me? A show off? Never. Mebs a poser granted but not a show off. I don't like the attention. Makes me feel all self conscious Before I analyse myself any further though let me just say these Moxie lip glosses are amaze! Formulation, coverage, longevity. It's got it all. Bare Minerals are probably one of my favourite make-up brands... so if I'm honest they can do no wrong. This lip gloss wears as a pale pinky nude on me, as it's got a slight peach tone to it. BM describe it as a Baby Pink but I think for me, personally I class a baby pink as more pastel and a touch more bluer. But that could be me being pedantic. Either way it's gorgeous and it's another one of those lips that work with endless make-up looks. The whole Moxie range is pretty spesh... I have a wee collection...
Sorry... I'm gonna be sticking in Instagram pics all over the shop now I know how!
L'Occitane Mint Verbena Exfoliating Shower Gel
I actually bought this for my holiday however I need to buy another one cos I can't take an opened product away with me. When I go on holiday I like EVERYTHING to be new! I'm such a fanny. I've been using this pretty regularly; I love mint anyway. I even have a mint plant at home... and I can't have a Sunday Dinner without lashings of mint sauce. I digress. This is super fresh without being too OTT; it's not like a tea tree or menthol tingle feeling. It's just a clean, fresh, I've been washed in a natural spring by a rock getting back to nature, feeling all pure feeling. Or something like that! It's not too gritty either; I think it's gentle enough to use multiple times a week if I'm honest. To conclude though; it's real nice, It's not as nice as the peach blossom one they done about 4 years ago but it's still up there and will deffo be a repurchase!
What have you been in lurve with in August? Any stand out products for you?
