So today I thought I would switch it up a tad and post something different. What better way than to start with my monthly favourites? I love reading monthly favourites on blogs and youtube, so I thought I would show you my favourite skincare treatments of July.

NEW ADDITIONS TO MY NIGHT TIME SKINCARE
These two items have now made it into my night time skincare routine:
Lancome Genifique Yeux Light Pearl(Eye illuminating Youth Activator)
Lancome Hydra Zen Nuit Neurocalm (Soothing Recharging Night Cream)
I had been given this Lancôme gift set for Christmas and have been testing it out ever since. The Lancôme night cream claims to soothe your skin while making your skin feel refreshed and moisturised. It's specifically aimed at dehydrated skin, I apply this once I have cleansed. I can honestly say I can’t be without it! It has a subtle smell of roses which I find the smell so relaxing before bed. The smell honestly helps my drift off.
The Eye Illuminator Activator comes with a 360 applicator designed to rotate and massage the skin. This product reduces the appearance of dark circles & improves skin brightness.I have the small 5ml version so I just use it on pamper nights rather than every night. The full size version can be very costly.
The night time cream is so soft and light, it leaves this refreshing cool feeling on your skin. The Lancôme Neurocalm formula has plant based ingredients which soothes the skin reducing the effects of environmental stress to your skin. My Skin now feels a lot healthier and I think this is down to my Skin being properly hydrated. I can visibly notice the difference and think this cream will be for keeps!
Let me know if you have tried out these products & how you got on with them.

BIODERMA SENSIBIO H20- MICELLE SOLUTION
I use this water cleanser to remove my makeup, it is alcohol free and amazing for sensitive skin allowing your skin to maintain its skin balance. I then gently dab my face with a cold flannel.
LIZ EARLE- CLEANSE & POLISH
I use two pumps of this and gently massage it into my skin, this product is amazing. The smell always reminds me of a steam room, it some how has this spa like feel to it. I then use a warm muslin cloth and gently wipe my face which removes dead skin cells.
OLAY ESSENTIALS- BEAUTY FLUID MOISTURISER
I absolutely swear by this moisturiser, my Nan has been using it for as long as I can remember. Her skin is so beautiful and wrinkle free at the age of 87! At £5 this has to be my skincare steal! My skin feels instantly hydrated.
ESTEE LAUDER- ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SERUM
The most expensive skincare product I own. I put this on just before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning my skin looks radiant & healthier. The serum enhances the skins night time renewal process, diminishing the signs of impurities.
REN- GLYCOLACTIC RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK
I use this once a week when I have my pamper days. This peel mask renews your skin tone and complexion. I leave it on for 10 minutes and gently wipe my skin with a cloth. This mask keeps blackheads and blemishes at bay, removing dead skin cells while renewing complexion. Your skin will look glowing!
These are just my 5 top products that I had to share with you. Everyone's skin type is different but the majority of these products are sensitive prone.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL, FLUIDITY, EMBROIDERY, LACE, INTRICACY
The heavy embellishment and attention to detail by mixing fabric and sequins has truly got me inspired to experiment more. I always convinced myself that sequins were only acceptable at Christmas time.
I'll definitely be wearing my vintage jumpers, bright colours and heavy embellishments will be my staple pieces for Autumn/Winter.
