June Favourites

Hello everyone!

Today I'm going to be sharing my top 5 June favourities. I hope you enjoy reading! 


Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub (£9.50)


I am obsessed with many of the Soap & Glory products and this is one of my favourite exfoliators ever! It smells like maple syrup which I love!
Being a sugar scrub it works really well to combat dry skin and it leaves your skin feeling nice and smooth.
This is what I used to prepare my skin before I went on holiday! 


 Palmer's Cocoa Butter (£3.77)

 

This is one of the best products I have found for moisturising my dry skin.
I have to say I like this moisturiser much more than the Garnier Firming Lotion which I did a full review on click here to see it.
If you are a fan of cocoa butter then you will love the smell of this product if not then I suggest you stay clear from this as it does smell quite strong!
This is what I have been using since I came back from my holiday, it is perfect to use if you want to maintain your tan and it contains Vitamin E which helps to keep your skin soft and smooth!


 Bourjois Healthy Mix (£9.99)


This has been my favourite foundation this month. I love the smell of this foundation, it has a nice fruity, clean fragrance to it. 
People I know who have sensitive skin have been put off by the fact that it is scented and I know many people who have had break outs when using this, but for me it works well on my skin.
I like the 'fruit therapy' aspect of this product also!
This foundation goes on smoothly and lasts a very long time! It is my favourite go-to summer time foundation!


Benefit Porefessional (magazine freebie)
Benefit Porefessional 22ml retails at £23.50


I got this free in Glamour magazine and I love it! However I have stopped using this since I started using the Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser as I don't like to use a moisturiser as well as a primer, but I had to put this product in my June Favourites because I really do love it.
I don't think it hides my pores a great deal but it definitely leaves my skin looking and feeling smoother and my foundation glides on more easily!


Ciate Bon Bon (magazine freebie - worth £9)

 (Taken with Canon A3300is)
 This is such a gorgeous nude colour!
 I love how this nail polish applies it looks flawless and dries quickly!
I always apply 2 coats as I think that gives the best colour pay off! 
And the packaging is adorable!

  5. I have really sensitive skin so I'd be afraid to try out that particular Bourjois foundation but I've heard amazing things about it so I am glad it works for you! I need to try out that Soap and Glory scrub.

  8. Absolutely LOVE the Soap & Glory scrub! I usually use it on my legs and it makes them sooo soft and smooth. I've been using the Healthy Mix foundation for a while now too, I think it's a really great foundation for the price. Not tried Porefessional yet, it's been talked about all over the place recently so will probably invest at some point! x

    1. I know it's the best scrub I've used for a long time!
      Porefessional is quite pricey so I would definitely make sure it's something I really want before buying it!

  9. Mr. A swears by cocoa butter. He gets really dry skin, and it helps him a lot.

  21. The Ciate is such a gorgeous colour, very soft and feminine :) Wish we got such awesome magazine freebies where I live, like the nail polish and Benefit Porefessional sample. Palmer's cocoa butter is super moisturising and smells so chocolatey :)
