August Favourites

The last month has seen the re-vamp of this blog meaning I've been paying a little bit more attention to the products I've been using and what I have/haven't liked than I would normally. I probably won't share the months favourites with you every month because it would get a bit repetitive seeing as though I tend to stick to the products I love like glue. I don't actually buy new products very often either so it would be a bit of a waste of time to share with you exactly the same as the previous month! That being said, if there's new things I've been loving I'll definitely do little updates to let you know! So without further ado, here's my favourites from the month of August.

This month my love for Lush has grown even more which I hardly thought possible. I've got a couple of things to share with you from Lush today but top of my list has to be the Ultrabland Facial Cleanser that I talked about in my post last week. It's such a fantastic product and I can really see why people love it so much. Ultrabland is definitely going to be a staple of mine from now on. You can see why I loved it so much by reading last week's post here.

For my hair I've been loving R&B Hair Moisturiser from, you guessed it, Lush. I've got a post on this stuff coming soon but it really has been a life saver. I find it works best on my hair when it's dry so in the morning, after I've brushed through my hair, I just rub some of this between my fingers and then run it through my hair. It completely calms any frizz and encourages the slight natural curl in my hair which means my hair looks neat and tidy without me having to anything with it. If you have trouble with frizzy hair that's a little bit curly but not quite enough I'd definitely recommend this product. I absolutely love it!

I've also been loving the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil for my hair. I tend to use this at night and I just run a tiny bit through the lengths and ends of my hair. I find it's great for keeping hair healthy and shiny which can be pretty difficult for me with my over dyed ends! This is the first hair oil I've tried so I'm not too sure how it compares to others but it's definitely a great product!

I tried out a new nail polish this month that's been sitting in my room for a while untouched. There's a review of it coming soon, don't worry, but I found it to be a lot better than I was expecting. It's from the super cheap Laura Paige brand that I found in The Co-Operative Pharmacy a while back that I've found to be really good so far! It's a beautiful, greeny blue, metalic colour and I found it lasted about a week without chipping! It's in the shade 01 Aqua Blue for anyone wondering.

Last but not least, I tried my first fresh face mask from Lush and absolutely loved it. I don't have a photo of this I'm afraid as I used it all up before I got a chance to! I tried The Sacred Truth (a recommendation from one of the employees there based on the fact I have dry skin) and I absolutely loved it. I'm not really one for face masks so I don't really know all that much about them but let me assure you, my skin felt incredible after using this. I'd definitely recommend it and I would've gone and re-purchased it if I wasn't so keen to try out some of their other ones.

So there's my favourite products from the last month. I hope you liked this post, let me know if you'd like to see more of this type of thing on here and let me know if you've tried any of these products and what you thought of them!
