August Favourites

Before I start, I'd just like to mention that the winner of my 1K Giveaway is Jodie Moores! Thank you all for taking part and a big thanks to Baker Days for supplying the prize! 

Hello friends! I actually can't believe we're now in September!! This year has literally gone by in the blink of an eye! And the other day I actually found myself thinking about Christmas - that is insane! Anyway, this month I've really tried to switch things up a bit, reaching for different products and using them in different ways. 

First up is The Comforter Shower Cream from Lush Cosmetics. OMG How excited was I when I was browsing and found it outside of the Oxford Street, London store! I nearly screamed I was so excited - seriously! I have been lusting after it for so long and was heartbroken when I realised it was exclusive to Oxford Street. As I am sure you all know (after mentioning it only about 1000 times), The Comforter Bubble Bar is my all time favourite product from Lush and I use it almost weekly! So when I saw this I immediately knew I was going to love it! If you've never smelt the comforter before a) how have you not? and b) imagine a sweet and fruity blackcurrant scent or a big glass of Ribena! It makes any gloomy morning an absolute dream and is perfect for a long relaxing soak!

Adding a touch of luxury to my everyday makeup, the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette (Limited Edition) has been one of my most used products this month! I've really been liking using just one of the shades (mainly the top right burgundy colour) all over my lid and blending it out to create an intense smokey look. Using a range of Real Techniques eye brushes to apply them with, I have really mixed up my entire makeup look and I will certainly be opting for similar looks this month!

To go with the NARS eyeshadows, I've been loving using the Benefit Badgal Lash Mascara. One day I will actually commit to it and purchase the full size, but until then the miniature travel size is suiting me just fine! It has a really big wand which gives you incredibly voluminous lashes. Those with oiler skin may find that it smudges onto the under-eye area. 

I have recently made both a rediscovery and new discovery at the same time. I haven't used Sudocrem as a part of my skincare routine since I was about 13/14/15 years old. I seem to remember it working really well to get rid of blemishes, but I always felt super awkward going out to buy a product labelled as 'nappy cream'. Sudocrem has recently launched a new Skin Care Cream targeted at everyone with blemishes. The Sudocrem Skin Care Cream* is absolutely incredible for soothing blemishes and when used as an overnight face mask or a targeted spot treatment, you wake up with the softest and plump skin! Plus it only costs a bargain £2.11 per tube - at that price you can't really afford not to try it out!

And finally, my last favourite from August is The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist. One of my bestest friends (hi Sarah!) bought me it as a gift for my birthday in June and I've worn it pretty much non-stop since. It is so fresh and perfect for summer - plus you smell like a giant strawberry all day long! It is an absolute steal at only £7.50, and is perfect to throw in your handbag for touch ups throughout the day!

What have you all been enjoying this month?
