June Favourites


Clarisonic Mia
I've used this regularly this month, it's helped keep my skin under control. I'm still suffering from the odd blemish here and there but my skin is noticeably smoother. I also feel that products sink into my skin better. I've been using it with the Antipodes Juliet cleanser, this leads me onto my next skincare favourite.

Antipodes Juliet Cleanser*
This is the first time I've tried Antipodes, I've heard lots about this particular cleanser.
Designed for normal-oily skin types, it claims to help clean skin making it blemish free. I've noticed my skin looker clearer but I'm still getting my monthly break outs. Full review to follow.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir 
I've used this so much and love it! After using this for over a good month now I can say I've noticed my pores shrinking! I always use to rely on my Clinique Instant Perfector to fill in my pores but I've not needed to in the past couple weeks. I will without a doubt be picking up another bottle when this finishes. You can read my full review here.

Origins Drink Up Intensive
This has been my skin saviour this month, I've reached for this lots and if you suffer from dehydrated skin you NEED this. I won't go into detail because I've reviewed it here.


The Body Shop- Moringa Beautifying Oil*
This has just scraped it into this months favourites, I've just started using this the past week and OMG it smells amazzzzinnggg. I've never heard of the ingredient Moringa. The Body Shop suggest you can use this for the body, face and hair. I've been using it through my hair and enjoying the lingering scent all day. Have you seen the new Beautifying Oils? They have another 10 different fragrances to pick from!

Amazon Series MuruMuru Anti-Frizz Conditioner
I've mentioned this before on my blog sometime ago now, but seeings as I'm trying to work through my way of finishing products I picked this one up this month. I can't beleiev I ever stopped using it, it smells so good. I would go to say apart from American Cream by Lush this is the best scented conditioner I've EVER tried! It is a little on the pricey side so I won't be re-purchasing just yet but I would add this to my birthday list for sure.

Orofluido Sahara Hair Protection*
I've tweeted about this product a couple times now, this is one of those hair products which is great to travel with. I took this on holiday with me and used it daily, I even used it on my little girl. It acts as a heat protector and a treatment. It sprays a fine mist of dry oil which nourishes the hair and leaves a nice soft subtle amber and vanilla scent. I've been using this on clean damp hair, you only need a couple sprays. I've used this a fair bit and I have 90% still left! Infused with argan oil which we all know is the Mutt's Nuts!

Revlon Professional Equave*
This has been a product which the whole family has enjoyed using. My little little girl gets terrible knots in her hair. This is another hair product which smells lovely, I picked this one because it's not a floral feminine scent. My son has also been using this, I just like putting it through his hair so when it dries it has a subtle fresh scent. 

Self-Tan & Perfume

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self-Tanning*
I first read about this product from the lovely Anna who writes Vivianna Does Makeup, if you don't already follower you need to! I've tried a few self-tanners on my face and whilst they've looked fine they've never looked great. I'm always left with darker areas especially around my eye brows and nose, I know this is gross but I also find that the self tan collects and sits in my pores. So my nose was looking like a dot-dot puzzle! The Clarins Liquid Self-Tan develops into a natural golden glow. It doesn't collect in pores nor look fake. Full review to follow.

Vivienne Westwood Boudoir Jouy EDP
I'm a huge fan of the original Boudoir so there's no surprise I was going to love this. It's a softer floral scent which has been my go-to day scent.


BURT'S BEES Lip Balm / Honey*
My new favourite lip balm, I love the smell of this. A nice sweet honey scent which feels creamy on the lips. I've been keeping this in my handbag and using it lots during the day.

Mac Blush Springsheen / Style
I'm so happy I decided to give these a go this month, I've been loving them ever since. Springsheen is a sheertone Shimmer finish described as a peach with pearl. I would say it's the perfect peachy-pink shade which has a hint of shimmer. The shimmer isn't heavy on the cheeks at all which is why I think I like it so much. It has been compared to Nars Super Orgasm. Mac Style is also a coral-peach shade but much more of a orange peach shade and has a gold pearl undertone to it.

Clinique Eyeshadow Duo / Victorian Pink
I had to feature this in my monthly favourites, if you've been reading my blog you would've seen me mention this eyeshadow duo a few times already. I love how it makes me look wide awake and brightens up the eyes. Plus I adore the packaging, I use the sponge tipped applicator to place the shadow then use my blending brush to blend the edges. The lightest colour is a pretty soft shell.

Clarins Lip Perfectors
This is another product which I've loved using all through the month and no doubt will continue to use and love through July and probably August! You would've seen me use these in a few posts and rave about them. I love their scent and subtle wash of colour it leaves on your lips. I like the fact they're not sticky at all like other lip glosses. It would be fab if they launched some more shades don't you think?

I've really enjoyed these products this month and will no doubt continue to use them well into next month.
