Is it really that time again? Here are my faves from July!
Sleek Contouring Kit
|Teddies need to contour too, you know.|
I bought this in light, because I'm so pale... (It's genuinely becoming a catchphrase now...)
It's a fantastic product. Admittedly, I've not really used the bronzer section of this kit, just using the highlighter instead at the moment. I really like it, but I only use it on days where I need a little more sparkle.
The highlighter is sparkly, obviously... The bronzer is a matte one. I'm opting for a shimmery Natural Collection £1.99 bronzer instead at the moment. (Which has lasted absolutely ages and it does seem like it might well outlive me at this point...)
At £6.49 it's a really great value version of contouring kits made by other (much more expensive) brands.
Inecto Coconut Glossing Spray
I LOVE this! I'm not sure if it's readily available. I've been buying it every now and again from Bodycare. It smells amazing. Really coconut-ty. (Obviously.)
I also love this because it makes my hair really shiny. If I'm having a bad hair day, a spritz of this before blow-drying seems to help me to look a little bit less disheveled than usual.
I'd definitely recommend this to people who suffer from the dreaded frizz!
Bourjois Little Round Pot - Shade 54
|This is after months of use and there's still loads left!|
It's shimmery, but not too much. It's perfect for day and night wear.
The pot has a little mirror and also a little applicator that bends over the mound of product. It closes with a magnet as well, so it ensures that it won't open by accident in your make-up bag, break into a powder and then go everywhere...
Bourjois offer loads of different shades and this product retails at £6.99.
Palmer's Coco Butter Lip Balm
|No, I couldn't be bothered to take it out of the packaging.|
At £1.89 it's not pricey and they're easily picked up in Boots or other 'drugstores'.
Boots DermaCare Daily Moisturising Lotion
|Teddies need moisturising too.|
This one's really only for those who suffer from the dreaded dry skin or eczema, like me. It's wonderful. A bottle will easily last me a fortnight or so.
There are different types of this that you can buy which are priced slightly differently. They're coloured-coded though, which helps! Yellow is cheaper than green... About a pound cheaper. It is more watery, but it's much cheaper, so bear that in mind.
The one pictured (green one) currently retails at £3.89, which is why I prefer the yellow one at £2.59.
It's a really well-hidden product. Boots seem to hide their own brand products (which are often really good) on bottom shelves.
Thanks for reading!
