August Favourites


It's been quite a while since I have compiled a favourites list. Sometimes when the end of the month comes around, I find I am using the same items as the previous month so it is pointless to blog about them again. Hence, why my favourite posts are so sporadic.

Nars Sheer Glow
I switch up my foundation depending on how my skin is behaving. If I need a pick me up I tend to reach for my Nars Sheer Glow. I don't particularly like how this foundation applies on my skin, sometimes I find it sits on my face rather than blends in but when I wear it I always receive so many compliments about how flawless my skin looks. So this will always remain a firm favourite of mine.

Revlon Lipgloss 
I have had these glosses for ages now and for some reason they got lost in my collection. I don't know at the time did I not feel comfortable embracing bright colours or what? Anyway, I rediscovered them recently and I adore them. My next post is a review dedicated to them.

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner
I read all about exfoliating toners from Caroline Hirons blog and this was the only one I was able to get my hands on. I am still lusting after the Pixi Glow Tonic as it is a stronger formula but it is gold dust at the moment. Anyway back to the product on hand. I have seen significant changes in my skin since using this in conjunction with my Hydraluron. I find my skin gets extremely irritated when I use harsh scrubs on it so this is the perfect alternative. It has eliminated all my dry patches and evened out my skin tone. For the first couple of weeks I was using this twice a day but now I only use it daily as it gives the same results and honestly I was flying through it and it doesnt come cheap.

Hydraluron
I received this for my birthday in July and I adore it. I can't imagine it not being in my skin care routine. If you would like to know my in-depth thought on it I have a review here.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush 
I purchased the Real Techniques core collection when they were first released and fell head over heals in love with them. Since then every time I am in Boots I always have a glance at the single brushes in the range. I usually always talk myself out of buying them as they are fairly pricey in Ireland and I find it difficult to justify adding more brushes to my collection. However recently I took the plunge and boy am I glad I did. I use this as my foundation brush and I love it! It gives me a beautiful flawless finish and I find the shape of it is fantastic for getting into the contours of your face.

Kindle 
I have just finished my studies so I have been throughly enjoying reading some fiction. I adore reading but find when I am in college I just don't have the time to read and when I am concentrating on books throughout the day the last thing I want to do in the evening is more reading regardless of the content. Lately, I have been enjoying catching up on some James Patterson novels. I am going to start Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn now as I have heard loads of rave reviews.

30 Day Shred
I started the 30 days shred back in June but only completed 2 weeks of it as my back was acting up. But even after only 2 weeks I was starting to notice a difference and I was feeling confident in my body. So I have started it up again, but I only started on the 20th of August so hopefully I will keep it up this time around.
