Hi Everyone,

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. 

Treacle Moon - My Coconut 

This body butter smells delicious, its a cross between coconut/treacle/cinnamon. It leaves my Skin feeling so soft and its fragrance reminds me of being on holiday. It is the perfect scent for when I'm not in the mood for perfume I just double up on the butter and I'm good to go. 

L'oreal Elive Extraordinary Oil 

The perfect serum on the market? I think so! It smells divine, leaves my hair feeling silky soft and leaves a glossy shine. The thing I love the most about this serum is that when I put the product in my hair still feels light. You're probably thinking what is she on about? Well some serums I've tried have made my hair feel heavy. I only use 2 pumps after I've washed my hair and 1 pump during the day to keep the frizz at bay.

La Roche Posay- Effaclar Duo +

Its safe to say I'm in love with this product, I only use it in the night time after I've cleansed. My skin looks noticeably clear, any pigmentation left from previous spots have reduced significantly.... dare I say it... almost vanished! Even when my skin is clear I will still use this moisturiser as it unclogs my pores keeping spots at bay. I can't recommend this product enough, it is my secret lotion  for fresh hydrated skin. You only need a little bit of the cream as it has a gorgeous consistency. A little goes along way and for only £13 who's not to love it. 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum 

I know this product is expensive but its one of my luxury items that will be in my skincare for a long long time. One of its main ingredients is hyaluronic acid- it helps to retain over 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of our skin, keeping our skin hydrated. Of course there is other components in this serum but it is literally a potion of heaven to glowing refreshed skin.

Liz Earle- Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask

Liz Earle products are always filled with goodness, this mask contains; apricot kernal, borage and rose cented granium olis, all which are natural ingredients. I use this face mask once a week for 10 minutes, my skin feels instantly soothed. The perfect mask for a pamper evening!

Rimmel Lasting Finish- Purple Rain

I had to add this polish into my favourite even though its not skincare related. This polish claims to last upto 10 days and I must admit I was dubious about this. I mean I always get a chip within the second day. But not with this polish, it lasted more than a week!! I also love the colour (deep purple/brown). I like a dark nail polish but I often find that black polish is to harsh, this colour is the perfect in-between for me.

Here is a picture of the Rimmel lasting finish polish in purple rain. On another sidenote this has got to be my new favourite breakfast creation from July. The ingredients are Yeo valley organic yoghurt, granola, cinnamon, peaches & honey. Healthy but delicious.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this post, maybe I'll do a regular monthly favourite. If you have tried any of these products leave me a comment saying how you got on with them.
