July Favourites

It's that time again, the end of another month. I think I must be getting old as the months are flying by faster and faster! It's been an a bit of a 'meh' month for me; injuring my foot at work and generally feeling sorry for myself for most of July hasn't been that fun. I'm really looking forward to August as I'll be spending a week volunteering and another week in Tenerife :) I've just looked over the products I've picked out as my favourites this month, and realised that four out of the six are spray products; how random is that!

Soap and Glory Girligo: I recently did a review of this product, describing it as my best summer moisturiser. It's a body moisturizing mist, so you just spritz the (scented) stuff all over and you're done.

La Roche-Posay Eau Thermal: Yes, it's basically just water in a can, but the thermal water is naturally rich in the antioxidant Selenium which soothes and softens sensitive skin. I don't know if it's my imagination, but my skin has felt less tight and generally less irritated since using this. I'll definitely be picking up another can for my holiday as it's also really cooling.

Urban Decay All Nighter: This Setting Spray is a life-saver in the heat we've had recently. My make-up does not budge after a few sprays of this, simple.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Blueberry: Blueberry is a bright blue shade that makes your tan look gorgeous and adds a pop to any outfit.

REN Clearcalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask: I'm becoming a huge fan of REN skincare, and this mask is my latest favourite of their offerings. It's formulated for blemish prone skin, and is great for my sensitive skin as it's not harsh at all. My new favourite face mask.

The Body Shop Love Etc...  Sun Kiss Eau de Toilette: I've officially found my new summer scent! It's a bit more tangy and fruity that its perfume cousin (which I also own), with the addition of nectarine."This summery fragrance is a blend of jasmine and fresh nectarine notes. It is deliciously light, upbeat and cheeky. Perfumer Dominique Ropion says, “I used nectarine with an unexpected solar accord, perfectly embodying the scent of summertime.” Yum yum.

And now for non-beauty favourites: My Music favourite this month is Hoodie Allen (check out his album 'All American', it's so summery and happy!) and my Food favourite has got to be Mini Magnums!

I'd love to see your favourites for the month of July, so if you've done a post, please link it below :)
