This is my first post of this kind and I hope this may have been of some interest :) I see a lot of other bloggers do this kind of post and, to be honest, I want to be in on the action :P This isn't necessarily a 'favourites' post, but a post about stuff I have used a lot too. Some I may have already reviewed, some I have not (yet!). But here is what I have been mostly using this month...
Prada Candy L'Eau - Seriously, I cannot stop raving about this fragrance and it is possibly my favourite fragrance I own (shock!). After getting a sample of this June, I could not stop myself purchasing this in July with my O2 Priority Moments. It is light and sweet and last a long while on the skin despite being an Eau de Toilette. I want to wear this all the time but I am afraid it will run out. For a full review, I have rated the sample here and my purchase here.
The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Body Butter - I purchased this in the huge sale The Body Shop held in June and could not resist purchasing some of their body butters. I had only tried the fruity ones before this and was a little disappointed i it when I realised it did not had a dense consistency like the fruity ones. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how soft it made my skin and did not leave my skin super greasy like other body lotions. I would get this again in another sale for £3!
Avon Magix Face Perfector - I have owned this for a while after my Mum told me it was a good substitute for a foundation. She was wrong and as a result relegated it to my make-up bag that contains the products I use lass often... until a few months ago. I realised this was actually a face primer and I had heard amazing things about them. And yes, this does the job of a primer and I even use it to prime my lids for eyeshadow. This is fantastic and with the hot July weather, the SPF 20 it contains comes in handy too.
Vaseline Intensive Care Hand and Nail Cream - Since I love painting my nails so often, I know the importance of using hand cream to keep my hands soft and I am trying to keep my cuticles in good condition as they start to annoy me otherwise. I picked this up from Poundworld thinking 'this will do' as I know Vaseline is a known brand. I was a little disappointed in this stuff though as it didn't feel that nourishing and the smell was not that great. I was even more shocked at seeing this retail in Superdrug for £2.99. I'm not impressed by that retail price...
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in 'Shine City' - This is from my Fragrance Direct haul in June where I purchased so many nail polishes for some gift bags. Ironically, I managed to actually get this free as I had spent over £20 even though I was fully expecting to pay for it. This has a great vanilla scent and was just the clear sparkly gloss I wanted for summer. Gorgeous :)
