July Favourites


Okay so this blog post is very late considering it is now almost half way through August.  We've been having lots of internet problems and BT haven't done anything to sort it!  So I might even be lucky to get this posted today...fingers crossed my internet doesn't cut off!  But aside from my internet being rubbish, let's look at what I've loved in July!

First up is Soap and Glory's Glow Job.  Glow Job is a bronzing moisturiser, and smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange!  It is quite rich, and has tiny bronzing beads inside.  I used this daily on holiday for evenings out, as it nicely enhanced my tan.  But be careful because I did notice that I had some tiny streaks where I hadn't blended in properly from a random bronze bead!  It is easily fixable though and I'd definitely buy this again when this tube runs out.  The bronze beads aren't remotely orange and are actually bronze, so it looks very natural!  I carried on using this at home, but I found I had to use a powder to help mattify my skin.  I'm quite oily skinned, and without a powder, Glow Job can be quite hard to wear.  Regardless, I love it!

I have loved bright lips this summer, and Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendevous was amazing.  It's a bright orange which looks amazing with a tan, but also great on us pale skinned girls!  I wore this colour a lot in Cancun, and it's just nice, vibrant and looks really pretty on.  Whilst on holiday, I also picked up my fifth Just Bitten Kissable (I love these for a quick colour fix!) and I got the colour Charm which is a peachy, barely there stain.  I love it and if you get the chance whilst your across the pond, definitely pick it up as they don't sell them in the UK.  I got mine from Wal-Mart in Cancun.
My July scent has been Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess.  I was given this as a gift and it smells exactly like a tropical holiday.  Sweet, tropical and hot...I doubt they're still selling these now as they're limited, but they'll no doubt be out again next year if you need to get your hands on it!  Which you do!
For taking off my make up, I usually just get in the shower and use my face wash in the hope that everything goes in one quick swoop.  It doesn't, and there is always some mascara left behind.  My skin isn't the best and being oily skinned as well as prone to break outs, I need a real skin care routine.  I bought L'Oreals Micellar Solution from Morrisons when it first came out, and haven't looked back since!  It's so refreshing and light on the skin, and removes make up easily.  I have started using this after a shower and I've used my face wash to ensure that my skin is thoroughly cleansed.  Now, I've not tried the original Micellar Water from BioDerma, but I am really impressed with this L'Oreal version, and it's purse friendly!
My last July favourite is something that I've repurchased so many times and it's by Bomb Cosmetics.  It is their Summer Honey Massage Heart.  This is so easy to use, smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling great.  It is a solid moisturiser which needs warming up in your hands a little before use, but then glides effortlessly across the skin whilst you hold the heart shaped treat in your hand!  I sometimes find it a little greasey if I'm rubbing it all over, but to battle that I just rub it a little over my skin and then rub the residue in with my hands.  If you've never tried Bomb Cosmetics, definitely give them a try because I love lots of their things!  They also do great little gift sets which you can buy to get a selection of products to try!  The only downside is storing this; Bomb Cosmetics, I'd love a little case for this to go into!
What were you loving in July?  Have you tried any of my July favourites?

  11. Nice favourites. You should try the Bourjois Color Boost lippies. They are better than the Revlon ones and there is this really pretty colour Beach on the beach.
