So here we are with another beauty favourites post, and I must say that I am really enjoying this new feature on blog, as it’s a great way to share with you guys the products I’m currently loving and using frequently. June’s feature went down very well with you guys, and in this July feature, these five products are ones which I have been using nearly every day. Some of these are recently acquired, and some are old favourites. Let’s begin!
I was gifted this Vaseline Spray-and-Go Body Moisturiser to try out, and at first I was dubious of a spray-on moisturiser, primarily because I’ve never seen it done before, but after trying it out for a few weeks I have to admit that I have been converted. The moisturising effect it gives is much like the other cocoa-Vaseline range in that it feels and smells great, but what has me hooked is how handy it is. Its absolutely perfect for mornings when you’re on the go and don’t have much time to worry about moisturising, as it’s super quick (and rather fun) to use.
Cocoa Brown Gently Bronze is another new addition to my beauty arsenal, and sadly I am down to the dregs of my first bottle after about a month or so of usage (I was literally squeezing the last out of it this morning!) I am not a hard-core tanner, but like a lot of us Irish gals, I do like a little glow from time-to-time, and this little moisturiser is perfect for summer days and bare legs. The whole Cocoa Brown range continues to impress me to be honest, but this is the product I seem to be using most frequently (about 2-3 times per week) to give me a nice soft glow. It’s much like the Dove and Johnson’s gradual tanner that were popular in the past few years, but I find this Coca Brown one much, much better. The colour payoff after one application is impressive, and there is no nasty smell or sticky residue. Its a winner, guys! I shall be re-purchasing soon.
Although not a very obvious beauty product, toothpaste is something I am picky about. I have been using this Beverly Hills Whitening Toothpaste for the past week or so now, and I am very impressed with both it’s cleaning abilities, but also the added whitening factor, which is always a bonus! My teeth are already noticeably whiter, and my they are feeling super clean to boot. For me it’s all about having those products that work their magic while fitting into your daily routine, so this range is perfect!
The Sleek contouring Kit has been an essential in my makeup bag for well over a year now, and I’m due yet another re-purchase. I love doing a wee bit of contouring on my face and cheekbones for night out and when I’m filming or shooting pictures, and this has always been my go-to product, as it comes with a highlighter also. It comes in a few different shades by I have always chosen the lightest shade and applied the contour part gently, and sparingly. When it comes to the highlighter however, I lash that stuff on! Brow bones, collarbones, eyelids, cheekbones, chest – you name it, i’ll highlight it 🙂
Another absolute staple in my makeup bag is the Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in black. I have tried so many different liqued liners, from pots to pens to crayons, and I always end up coming back to the Rimmel version. Delightfully cheap and cheerful, I have been relying on this product for oh, about seven years, to give me that feline eye flick I’m rarely seen without. If you haven’t tried this product out by now, then I implore you to give it a whirl.
Thats it for another month guys, I’d love to know if any of you have tried these products already, and what your thoughts are of course! Hoping you’re all having a great Bank Holiday weekend so far,
