I really can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by. It was only yesterday that me and my boyfriend were getting excited and ready for our long weekend away in Bristol, and that flew by us too!
I knew that quite a few of the products mentioned here would end up being favourites of mine this month gone, as I just loved using them so much.
I have actually decided to change how and when I make my three monthly posts live on my blog. Instead of having them up on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day of each month, I have decided to have them go up on the 1st, 3rd and 5th day of each month as it spreads posts over a week better… I think anyway!
So let me share with you my favourites!
- Oh Lola EDP by Marc Jacobs.
I LOVE this perfume and I used it solidly during my time in Bristol after buying it from there (mentioned in haul post here). When we came back though I realised how much I’d used and decided to give it a rest for a while, as whilst I grabbed this at a bargain price, it wasn’t exactly cheap. It was supposed to be £35.50 for the 30ml size, however due to a voucher I had for The Fragrance Shop I snapped this up for £30.50! Not a bad saving, if you ask me. The first thing I want to mention about this perfume is the bottle. How gorgeous is it, come on now! I feel so happy and girly when I pull the bottle of my bag with the cute plastic flower on the top! Marc Jacobs doesn’t just make great smelling perfumes, but he makes gorgeous bottles for them too. 😛 The smell of this perfume is so fresh and floral but with a teeny bit of citrus. The sooner I can pick up a cheap 50ml size of this perfume, the better as it’s definitely a favourite for the summertime.
- Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Softening Nourishing Lotion for Normal-Dry Skin (Sweet Almond Oil).
I picked up this body lotion on the way to Bristol as I didn’t pack a body lotion for our long weekend and I needed something to use whilst I was there, (mentioned here). I’m so glad I picked up this body lotion as it is perfect for when the weather is a little warmer. It’s a light body lotion that really does keep you hydrated throughout the day. I used it everyday whilst I was away in Bristol and have done a few times since being at home. I already know I’ll be buying this again and I recommend it for anyone who hates thick body lotions like myself, as I like something that sinks in quickly and feels light.
- Starbucks cold cup water tumblr.
Another item I bought in Bristol (also mentioned here) and one I have been wanting for a very, VERY long time! Whilst I drink quite a lot of water when at home anyway, I found recently that due to lazyness of keeping filling up my cup, I wasn’t drinking as much as I usually would and I thought that maybe a water tumblr might help. I looked high and low, in all the shops I had seen them in previously for a bog standard water tumblr and had no luck, NONE WHATSOEVER until I popped into the Starbucks in Bristol town centre and they had this plastic one for sale. Since buying it I’ve used it day and night for water, iced tea and iced coffee and it’s safe to say I love it!
- Avon Foot Works Cherry Ice Cooling Spray.
This is an old product from Avon and one I have been meaning to get rid of out of my cupboard for quite some time. Due to the warmer weather and being on my feet pretty much everyday, for most of the day my feet do get very warm, tired and they ache so I decided that my tootsies deserved a treat. I love this foot cooling spray for many reasons, it keeps my feet nice a cool, it dries quickly if you’re in a hurry and best of all it smells of cherries! I use this when I get home from work as my feet are usually warm and tired after a long morning or evening. This is discontinued now (well as far as I know!) so sadly you wouldn’t be able to pick this up, but I do highly recommend The Body Shop for foot products, as well as the rest of Avon’s Foot Works range.
- Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence.
I’ve owned this spray for a while now but I always seem to forget to use it when it comes to drying my hair and it’s a damn shame because it makes my hair look and feel amazing! I spray it onto damp hair just before I blow dry it and the end result is lovely! My hair feels soft and smooth and ready to go! I’ve made sure to remind myself to keep using this whenever I dry my hair as it’s such a joy to use! I don’t know how much this was as it was a freebie product with one of my Philip Kingsley shampoos but I recommend it to anyone who uses heat on their hair as it really does protect it from getting damaged.
- Avon Foot Works Cherry Ice Exfoliating Scrub.
Hey ho, yet another foot product that I have pulled out of my cupboard to use up! This foot scrub is very gentle on the feet but it does so a good job of making my feet feel lovely and smooth! I use this in the shower before going to work and in the bath before going to bed and it leaves my feet feeling soft as a babies bum. I don’t use this everyday as some days this month I have been in a bit of a rush and just haven’t really had the time to, however I want to try and use this up over the summer! Just like the foot spray it leaves my feet looking great and smelling of cherries, what more can you ask for? This is discontinued too, as far as I’m aware.
- The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel.
This was something I bought for my boyfriend and me to use whilst we were away in Bristol and we used quite a lot of it, as you can see from the above image. This smells of freshly picked raspberries, by far one of my favourite smells EVER! I’m really glad that The Body Shop have brought this range out into their store as it’s just so nice for the summer and whilst I love their strawberry shower gel, this is just a little bit better to use in the morning during the warmer months. This kept mine and my boyfriend skin lovely and soft, as well as smelling delicious. I’ll definitely be buying another bottle, as well as the EDT perfume too! I can’t get enough of the scent!
- MUA Power Pout Colour Intense Tint & Lip Balm in Broken Hearted.
I reviewed this lip product a while ago (review here) and since then I have used it on and off over the time of owning it. I really do like using this, but usually when the weather is warmer as this is easy to apply, is light and is a gorgeous colour! As it’s a tint and lip balm in one this also makes it great to wear for work if I’m in a hurry and can’t be bothered to take a few minutes to apply a lip colour. I’ve been using this a lot during the warmer days at work and have realised how much I do love this product! If you want to read more about it, do make sure to check out the review.
- OPI Kermit To Speak from the Muppets Most Wanted collection.
Yes, another purchase from Bristol, I’m sorry I went crazy when I was there! I’d wanted some of the polishes from this collection for a while and out of all of the polishes in the collection set I picked up (review of it here) this shade is probably my favourite. It’s a gorgeous mauve shade that one minute will be purple under the light and then green! Awesome huh? I’ve just been wearing this loads since buying it and even wore it on my last few days in Bristol. I intend to paint my nails with it after work on tomorrow too, get me eh? If you wish to read more about it, please check out the review.
- The Body Shop Coconut Hand Cleanse Gel.
I’m a sucker for scented hand sanitizers and if they’re cheap and cheerful like The Body Shop ones, then I’m a very happy (and somewhat poor) lady! I picked up three of these babies in Bristol, Coconut, Satsuma and Strawberry. I gave the Strawberry one away to my boyfriend but I’ve been using the Coconut scented one at work and I really do enjoy using it. I keep it in my handbag anyway for whilst I’m out on the go, as it’s better than a boring none scented hand sanitizer but I’ve ended up using most of this at work, replacing it with the Satsuma scent now. I really do recommend these if you want a change from a non scented sanitizer as they don’t break the bank, come in quite a few different scents and are 3 for 2 pretty much all the time in The Body Shop! Check them out.
So those were my favourites for June! What did you enjoy using last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.
Until next time take care all and I hope your week is starting off well!
