July Beauty Favourites + Empties
Tuesday, 7 Aug 2018
It is time for me to share my July Beauty Favourites, as well as a few empties.
First up, the MIXA Intense Repair Body Cream, I have been using this consistently since I bought it! I love, love, love it! It is so hydrating and nourishing without being greasy, and is perfect for dry skin.
I have really been enjoying the *Vichy Mineral 89 recently, it boosts hydration, plumps up the skin, and feels light on the skin.
As you can see, dehydration is clearly my issue, which is why I have been using the *dermalogica hydrablur primer. It smooths the skin, offers a slight healthy tint, but most of all really makes my dehydration lines disappear.
Next up I have the Lancome Juicy Shaker in *Berry In Love, looks like a tinted lip gloss, feels as light as a tint, but is as nourishing as a lip oil.
Lastly, I have the *Jessica Phenom Polish in #OUTFITOFTHEDAY, which is part of the #INSTASTYLE Fall Collection, as well as the top coat. I painted my nails with this polish eight days ago, and this is what it still looks like! How amazing! There is a slight fading along the tips, but the colour is still vibrant and no chips in sight! The polish dries really fast, and even though I painted my nails about an hour before bed, I did not have any sheet marks! The gel-like finish, fast drying time and longevity makes this range a winner for me! Luckily for one reader, I will be giving away a set of the #INSTASTYLE Fall Collection. including the top coat in the next week or so, so keep an eye out.
Lastly, some empties!
*Lamelle Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser– I love this cleanser, and once I get through all of the other cleansers in my stash I would definitely repurchase.
*Biomedical Emporium Facial Cleanser– Another lovely cleanser! Gentle, but still exfoliating, I enjoyed using this cleanser. It is quite expensive for a cleanser though, so I don’t think I would repurchase.
Real Techniques Makeup Sponge- This isn’t an empty really, but it looks like it may have mould on it! I do like this sponge though, but I prefer the Ecotools one.
*La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo SPF 30– Whenever my skin feels clogged, or as if I am getting a pimple, I use this, and it is a miracle worker! I love the added spf too. I think I would like to buy the one without spf next time, so that I can wear it at night too.
LA Girl Pro Conceal- This concealer is lovely, and I will definitely repurchase it. This isn’t empty, but for some reason has separated, and all I get is oil when I squeeze the tube.
Thanks for reading ladies! Don’t forget to enter the Orly And Dr Gobac Giveaways, they are both ending soon!
