Burt's Bees 'Pink Grapefruit' Facial Cleansing Wipes
These aren't my favourite wipes ever, no. I find them a little dryer than what I usually like for a cleansing wipe, but in saying that I haven't actually been using these Burt's Bees wipes to remove any make up which is what I usually use wipes for. After my morning shower I have been loving using one of these across the face as they really do clean well and have such a fresh, sour scent that really helps to waken up the skin and brighten your mood! It's almost like rubbing a dried grapefruit across the face... strange thought!
Soap and Glory 'The Righteous Butter'
I talked about this body butter in my 'Mission to Smoother Skin post' back at the beginning of summer, and I've been really delving back into the pot throughout this month. I go into more detail about the product in the other post so I won't ramble on but lets just say I have a few more pots of this lined up so if that doesn't show that I love a product, I don't know what will.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in 'Légende'
This one is a big deal for me because pink lipsticks NEVER suit me. Whilst I love this shade, and think it suits me well, I am still a little cautious as to not totally plaster on a pink lip because I'm just not used to it! I love the consistency of this lipstick too and find it extremely easy to apply. A quick swipe across the lips and you're left with a beautiful, warm toned pink with very very subtle notes of shimmer (which become more visible when you lightly dab on the product) which lasts for at least a few hours before a touch up is needed! Finally, I think what I love most about this lipstick is, whilst is isn't a matte lipstick, it does hold many similar characteristics to what you would usually find in a matte consistency, but still maintains its moisture. By this I mean that it isn't at all glossy, that it holds a strong, bold colour when applied heavily on the lip and does not budge - all without drying out the lips which is a huge problem I usually have to deal with when it comes to matte lipsticks, so I definitely think that these little beauties are worth the investment!
Soap and Glory 'Hand Food'
I really like this hand cream due to its thin consistency. It means that the product just sinks into your hands quick and easy without much fuss so it's perfect for when on the go. I've found my hands to be a little bit sensitive this month and I think that having gone a bit OCD with washing my hands every two seconds may have triggered this, cue hand cream. 'Hand Food' has helped sooth and calm my skin, drawing away any stinging that I was previously suffering. The only down side of this hand cream for me is that it hasn't got rid of the dry skin on the inside of my hands, and so I've had to use another, heavier product in the evenings to help out!
Stretch marks. We all get them and if you haven't yet then they're most likely to come. I'm not at all embarrassed admitting that I have been suffering with stretch marks this month because well, it's a natural thing that happens when you grow, gain or lose weight. It just so happens that on the insides of my thighs I have lost weight which has caused some little white and a few purple stretch marks to appear. I've always been so shocked when my friends have come to me for advice about similar issues and they had never heard of bio-oil so that is why I made a point to mention it in today's post. It really it just great at getting rid of those little wriggly snakes that nobody wants, especially in the summer months when we're wanting to feel comfortable in exposing more of our skin! I simply dab some oil onto my target areas and massage it in and have continued to do so for a few weeks now and they're nearly gone!
I really hope you all had a fantastic month! I know everyone says it but I honesty can not fathom that it'll be September tomorrow!! What on Earthhh?
Until next time,
