June Favourites

So here we are on the last day of June which means I can only post about one thing tonight and that's what I've been loving this month! It's been a pretty life changing month actually what with finishing uni, going on holiday and starting my internship and I think I've discovered some rather life changing (okay maybe that's a tad dramatic  Let's say very good...) beauty products to go with it.

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub- This smells so much like a mojito cocktail I have to stop myself from consuming it while I'm in the shower. Oh and it's pretty darn good as a body scrub as well. 
Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo- Being a bottle blonde means brassiness in my hair colour is the bain of my life, however continual use of this purple shampoo has left me with lovely ashy coloured locks.
Maybelline Gel Nail Colour in 'mint for life'- A new purchase and already firm favourite. The very light mint colour looks gorgeous, particularly with a tan and the formula also lasts for the promised seven days! 
Bourjous Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder- An old favourite. I bought this over a year ago and it's still going strong and has been essential this month for matching my very tanned body to my paler face.
Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub- I stupidly managed to sun burn my lips really badly in Spain last week and this has been a life saver at helping to buff the peelyness away and get my lips feeling soft and kissable again.
Garnier Ombre Solaire After Sun- As well as soothing sunburn this after sun also prolongs natural tan and deepens it with the tiny bit of self tanner it contains, which for once does not smell like biscuits, hoorah! 
Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum- Now the weather is summery just the thought of wearing foundation makes me feel hot and bothered so I've switched to this lovely light, gel like base that still offers good coverage.
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 'apricot'- A product that doesn't get a look in until I have a tan, this pale peachy blush has a gorgeous cream texture and looks so pretty on the cheeks and as a goldy highlight.
Simple Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser- I realised today that I never give this enough love as it's my go-to cleanser and toner in one and also helps to minimise those pesky pores whilst being very affordable.
Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist- In the summer months I can't get enough of glowy skin and a few spritzes of this after I've applied my make up removes excess powder and creates a gorgeous dewy finish. 

What are your June favourites?

I've had a very nice, rather drunken weekend as I've spent it meeting up with lots of people and indulging in hog roast and sambuca shots at one of my best friend's 21st parties. It's back to reality tomorrow though as I'll be doing the first proper five day week at my fashion PR internship. Wish me luck with all those 5.30 get ups...I hope you've all had a lovely month!
Love Meg

  3. Good luck for the ridiculously early starts! I start a new job tomorrow but thankfully don't have to leave my house quite that early hehe, love the sound of the lip scrub but I can't help but wonder whether it would be easy to DIY.. I'll have to give it a go :) xx

  4. Lip scrubs are awesome during summer! Good luck with that internship xx

  5. I really like the Bourjois bronzer but I don't think it smells like chocolate. I think I'd cry if I had to wake up at half five x

  15. I swear your monthly favourites posts always make my wishlist three times as long hehe :P I really want to try that shampoo as I'm constantly feeling paranoid about my hair looking brassy! I've just started using the Trevor Sorbie silver shampoo and I really like it, every time I've used it my colours definitely looked better :)
