August Favourites




I'm not sure I'm ready for September... I can't handle how quickly this year is passing me by. I keep telling everyone I'm going to start celebrating Christmas every 2 years instead because they are coming around far too quickly now a days.

But, before October is knocking on my door I better get on with the August favourites.



First up. The Sunsilk Longer and Stronger Shampoo and Conditioner.
I'm a girl that likes to change up her shampoo and conditioner all the time. When one lot is done I'm on the hunt for something else to try out. This one smells SO GOOD! kind of fruity, leaves hair smelling amazing for days. I find it doesn't weigh down my hair, it gets rid of the frizz and leaves it feeling silky smooth.

Next is the St Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Facial Scrub.
With Salicylic acid to help keep those blemishes at bay and the green tea extract helping dull any redness, this scrub is a real beauty! With super fine sand like particles in it, it gives a great deep down clean feeling and also smells really good.

The Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap is Ah. May. Zing! I had never tried anything from the Mario Badescu range before but was reading a Women's Fitness magazine and seen an article for products that clear up various skin conditions. I have what they call "Keratosis Pilaris" Otherwise known as those annoying red bumpy bits on the tops of the arms...
This soap plus a loofa = a lot less redness. A lot of the bumps gone and much smoother skin! For those who aren't too sure what A.H.A stands for. They are Alpha Hydroxy Acids. They help exfoliate and cleanse the skin. Just remember when using skincare with A.H.A's extra sun care is important! Use that sunscreen yo!





Off to some makeups...

The Chi Chi Glamourous Eyeshadow Palette in NUDE. A Suggested dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I would say it is a pretty close interpretation for almost a quarter of the price. I really enjoy this palette. Most shadows are shimmer with a few matte shades thrown in for good measure. The picture speaks for itself really.

Bonne Bell Therapy Lip Treatment. My holy grail lip gloss. I will forever and always re purchase this. It's a nice gel like consistency. Not sticky. It's SPF 30+ BONUS! Just an all round great lip product. When some girls are all about Blistex pots. I had these. Also super nice to put over the top of your lippies!

Face Of Australia HD High Definition Brow Kit. Nothing but love for this kit. I normally just use the darker powder but if I'm feeling extra fancy I will use the wax over top for extra staying power.

AAAAND lastly the Rimmel Wonder'Full Mascara with Argan Oil. A late entry into the mix but I already know it's going to get a lot more use from me. I'm not going to say a whole lot about it as I have already written a blog post on it. Check that out here.

And that ladies (and maybe some gentlemen) is the conclusion of tonights post! Hope you all enjoyed. Feel free to leave me a comment! Say hello :)
