August Favourites

August favourites 2016, the body shop, sleek, natural collection, BarryM

It's the end of August so it only means one thing...August favourites! I have to say that August was definitely not one of my favourite months so far this year mostly because I spent most of it revising for my exams (which I am now free of!) I have quite a lot of new favourites this month since I received a lot of lovely items for my birthday in July and I also made quite a few purchases while in London!


Natural Collection Bronzing Pearls in Tropical Tan // This product has been a staple in my makeup routine and you can probably tell from the state of the packaging. I usually swirl a large fluffy brush and apply it onto my face to give it that sun kissed colour (which I am seriously lacking of right now!)

The Body Shop Raspberry Body Butter // I always have a body butter at hand and when I ran out of my strawberry one I picked up this raspberry one. I am not usually too keen on really sweet and fruity scents but I quite like this one and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturised.

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette // This definitely has to be my favourite summer scent and I have been reaching for it frequently. It smells really light and sweet without being too overpowering. The other thing that I like about it is the gorgeous bottle which you have probably seen in the background of my latest posts.

BarryM Brow Wow in Light-Medium // As I said in my haul post it is perfect for quickly filling in my brows and the brush on the other side is very handy. The only downside is that you have to actually sharpen it but I can overlook that!

Sleek Matte Me in Birthday Suit // I'm sure that you have heard me talk about it already, either from my Instagram or from previous posts. It is the one that I reach for the most since it's a lovely nude shade and I'm even wearing it in the profile picture!

The Body Shop British Rose Shower Gel // I have to admit this but I am usually against any type of rose scents! I find them to be too overpowering and kind of remind me of a scent an old lady would wear. But this one proved to be an exception. The scent is very delicate and light which I love and I have been using it a lot.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts on them?

  4. I adore everything Body Shop, but I haven't tried the rose scent and it sounds lovely! I'm also loving Natural Collection at the moment - their lipsticks are amazing!

  8. Oh, that's a beautiful lip colour! I don't think I've ever so much as smelled any of the Body Shop products that you have here! I've been meaning to look into the British Rose line, though, it sounds so lovely! And that perfume sounds gorgeous as well :)
