July Favourites

July Favourites

It's then end of July already. The summer has practically gone and we've probably had, at most, about a week of nice weather. Oh the British summer. I know I am the worst at doing monthly favourites -  that New Year's resolution went out of the window in about March - but, this month I had some favourites that I couldn't not share with you.

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tan Overnight Elixir

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, click here to join the party) you will be quite surprised to see this in my favourites. On my insta stories, I shared the awful time I had with this tan. I heard really good reviews, but then woke up with streaks all over my legs. But, it turns out this was totally my fault. I didn't prep my skin well enough. I've since used this product a number of times and I've been so happy with  the results. The formula is really nice and leaves your skin feeling really hydrated in the morning. It also isn't really sticky like most fake tans, so it is really comfortable to sleep in. My favourite bit has to be the scent. No more weird biscuit tan smell for me! This product also worked really well on my face and didn't make me break out like most tans do.

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne
This scent was a birthday present to myself back in May, and I have been using it really sparingly since this month. I had a bit of a word with myself and realised why I am keeping it for 'special occasions' when actually how often do they happen. So this month, I've been making more of an effort to treat myself by wearing this gorgeous scent. It's totally stunning. I have loved pairing this cologne with the matching body creme to really intensify the scent. Its so luxurious and really makes me feel good when I'm wearing it.

To say this has been a July favourite would be a lie, it's been a favourite since May and I have been using it daily since then. You might have seen that I did a blog post reviewing the Midnight Recovery collection - see this here. In this post, I raved about how happy I was with these products, and this has definitely continued. This cleansing oil makes make up removal so easy. It melts your makeup so quick, even waterproof mascara, so then you can easily wipe it all away with a facial cloth. Done, as easy as that. I've also found it to be really nourishing and hydrating to my skin. It's definitely a product I can't live without.

Soap doesn't normally make it to my favourites, but these have really surprised me. Generally, I tend to stay away from bars of soap. I usually find them really drying to my skin, so I normally go for liquid hand soap. These soaps are completely different. I haven't found them drying at all - in fact the opposite. They are really nourishing to your hands and leave them feeling really soft. These bars also smell incredible. Like, words can't describe great. The packaging is so pretty on all the bars of soap - perfect to be given as a present. On their website they also have some really pretty gift sets too. I can see these soaps being really long lasting too, I've had mine for about three months and I've barley made a dent into the bar.

What have been some of your favourites this month? I'd love for you to share them with me in the comments, or via Instagram/Twitter. 
Love, Kate xx
