June Favourites

June Favourites

This month London welcomed the hottest day on record since 1976 and I welcomed several new editions to my toiletry (!) collection. From suncream to a summer scent, my June favourites could be my favourite ever.

***

Bronze and Glow

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Palette

For that beautifully bronzed, highlighted, blushing look all you need is the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi-Palette. I actually bought this last year and it has become my staple summer make-up product. The highlighter and the blush are absolutely beautiful and you can use the darker shade as an eyeshadow if like me you’re not into contouring. Did I mention how gorgeous the packaging is?!

Stay Protected

Apivita

Apivita are a Greek company who create natural, effective, holistic products for health and beauty. Products contain bee products, Greek plant extracts and organic essential oils. I usually use my Skinceuticals SPF cream for my face but I thought that I would try something different on my nose and cheeks where I can get a little redness. The Apivita Suncare Anti-Wrinkle SPF 50 Olive & 3D Pro-Algae Cream has a lovely texture and it is not too thick. My face didn’t burn but my cheeks aren’t wrinkled (yet) so I can’t say whether it stopped any future wrinkling!

Summer Scent

Jean Paul Gaultier

My absolute favourite scent for summer is the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Deodorant Spray. I have been using this for years when in Cyprus after I initially tried a sample in duty free. It’s very light and smells so fresh, feminine and clean. It’s perfect for the day and obviously you can smother yourself a bit more if you want to wear it in the evening!

Luxurious Lips

When on holiday I don’t like to take too many lipsticks so when I came across the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Lip Palette I just had to have it. The palette combines six complementing shades in a variety of matte and satin textures. The colours are really intense and the texture is very hydrating although I wouldn’t say they are particularly long-lasting. You will definitely need to re-apply after munching on a stick of souvlaki. The palette comes with a mirror and lip brush (a bit too thick for my liking) so it’s literally all you need!

Tinted Radiance

Eve Lom tinted moisturiser

I never wear tinted moisturiser but when out in Cyprus recently I suddenly found a sample of the Eve Lom Radiance Perfected Tinted Moisturier SPF 15 in my summer make-up bag. I already had a slight tan on my body but my face was still pale so I applied just a dab to my skin and my goodness the transformation was amazing. Within seconds I had a lovely glow and a completely even skin tone.

I don’t wear foundation generally and usually not at all on holiday as I prefer concealer, but this basically worked as a foundation, concealer and moisturiser all in one! Without the cakeyness! As my tan progressed and my face got darker, I still used the moisturiser on nights out and it just adapted to my colour. My sample was in the shade Bamboo 10 which seemed to work for me! A personal fave of the favourites ♥

Frizz Control

Argan oil

As some of you may have seen in my Haircare Story, I have tried so many oils and nourishing hair masks and they all pretty much do the same thing. I can’t really use oil by itself I always need to put leave-in conditioner on my hair first after washing it. However, the Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Weightless Reviving Dry Oil Spray has been a game-changer in my haircare routine. It leaves my hair so silky and smooth but it’s main attraction is that it smells ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. I want to spray it on my entire body. People were asking me what perfume I was wearing and literally trying to sniff my hair. (Yes it was pretty weird). But it really is THAT GOOD.
