July Favourites

Please excuse the fact I'm cutting this a bit late, I've been in one of those moods where I just don't wanna sit down and write for 40 minutes straight! However this months favourites are ones I feel really really confident about recommending to you all. These are all things I would strongly, strongly advise you try. Some, such as the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer probably aren't anything new to you guys, however it's always great to find new ways to apply or use a product or in the NSpa shower smoothie's case, fall in love with something you ordinarily wouldn't.

I've got every female member of my family obsessed with Korres because the quality of their products its simply exceptional! This 'Lip Butter' is a lipgloss/lipbalm/lipstick hybrid with a yummy yet unusual taste. It litter ally melts on your lips and although the colour looks really rather bold in the pot, it can be rubbed in more for a light wash of pale pink or applied slightly heavier for a full opaque bright pink lip. Even better, its just £7!

- Collection LP Concealer applied with Bare Minerals Blemish Remedy Brush £4ish
Now I'm sure this isn't anything new to you guys, but the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer (talk about a mouthful!) just had to make it into my favourites for July. In fact if I was to do an all-time favourites posts it'd probably pop up there too! This is here for this month in particular because I found a way to make it work differently. I mentioned in my 'This Or That Tag' that me and concealer don't necessarily get on, but using the Bare Minerals brush I got with the 'Blemish Remedy' I can apply it seamlessly!

- N SPA Coconut Ice Cream Shower Scrub £4ish
A friend bought this a while ago for me but me being a definite hater of coconut scented products (or so I thought) I threw it to the back of a drawer and completely forgot about it up until last month. Now its exfoliating claims are absolute rubbish, as you can see above the particles are very sparse. However the smell is something else, It's really made me want to venture out and try other coconut scented products I otherwise would have ignored!

- Daniel Galvin Jr Hangover Hair Shampoo (and conditioner) £6
And now for the star of the show, my definite all time favourite shampoo. 'Hangover Hair' has for quite a bit of time been the shampoo of choice for many salons and in fact many celebrities! (Including the very popular amongst bloggers - Millie Mackintosh) It's described as a 'luxury shampoo' and I can for sure agree with those claims. It sounds weird but when your rubbing it into your hair it doesn't feel like most other shampoos, a good kind of different. It has a strong scent of Lavender I should warn as it might put some off buying. Available at Waitrose.

What were your favourite products of July?


  1. I love the collection lp concealer!

  2. I really, really want to try a Korres lip balm, esp after I only recently found out Korres is a Greek brand :) xo

    1. I love there stuff! Their face wipes are next on the list! Are you a fellow Greek then too? <3

  3. I really want that Korres lip butter! It's so tempting! £7 really isn't a bad price either.. :)

  4. I love the Collection 2000 cocealer although it kind of bugs me that they've changed the name to just Collection. I don't think it sounds right! x

    1. I know what you mean! I feel so weird writing just Collection! <3

  5. Being Greek myself, I am in love with Korres! :)
