AUGUST FAVOURITES

So apparently people aren’t into watching the monthly favourites videos on YouTube anymore. Why is that? I’ve always been a huge fan of monthly favourites. It always gave me such good insight as to what I might also like to buy or avoid. Anyhow, there have been a few products that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with and wanted to share them with you in a post. It isn’t a video, so I’m sure you won’t mind haha. Now, I know it’s not the end of the month, nor is it the first, but I wanted to show you them anyway. 

Let’s start with the Phyto Plage After Sun Recovery Spray. I bought this to take away with me on holiday and had no idea I was going to like it this much. I don’t know the science behind it, or what it’s supposed to do, but it smells divine, can be used on wet or dry hair, makes my hair feel super soft and helps with detangling. Two thumbs up from me.

I don’t know what’s up with me lately but I’ve been going through bottles of perfume like nobody’s business! I was going to repurchase a favourite of mine from Bulgari but decided to go for the new Stella McCartney Pop fragrance. It’s really fresh and summery, however I really don’t like the bottle, it’s super pretty and girly, but not practical at all. It’s quite hard to hold the bottle and press the spray 'button' at the same time. I thought I had a faulty bottle but I tried a couple others in shops and at duty free and they were all the same. Do any of you have the same issue?

Now let’s talk makeup. I bought the By Terry Cellularose CC Serum in the shade Sunny Flash off Lydia’s recommendation and I have to say I’m in love. It’s the perfect makeup/skincare item to take away with you on holiday or if you want a bit of colour but no coverage. I went the entire seven days in Rhodes without using foundation, this and concealer did me just fine. It gives so much glow to the skin without being sparkly, it amazes me all the time. It leaves the healthiest glow and such a nice colour. It’s pricey of course, it’s By Terry, but totally worth it in my opinion. 

I’ve also been loving the Next Stardust Glow highlighter. It’s just so easy to draw on your face and to blend out with your fingers or a brush. It isn’t too in your face like some highlighters can be and just looks really natural, like that highlight is naturally yours. For the lips, I picked up this Clarins Lip Balm at the airport and didn’t put it down the entire holiday. It has such a nice peachy scent to it and leaves a hint of coral on the lips. Hydration-wise I wouldn’t say it’s the best, it’s definitely one to use if your lips are already smooth and you just want to maintain it.

Lastly, my favourite out of all these favourites, the Hamptons Sun Aloe Mist. Ugh, I won’t go into it so much because I am dedicating a post to it soon, but it’s the best thing if you’re going to a warm place where you’ll be catching some sun. I can’t tell you how gutted I was when I finished this bottle! I just love it, love it, love it, love it. More on it soon.

  3. I can't wear perfume at work (I work at a clinic and we have too many sensitive patients), so I go all out when I actually get to spritz it on! ;)

  5. There are so many products that will be added into my list to try from this post, everything sounds amazing! I'm not sure about the reason why monthly favourites videos are not as popular anymore. I still watch it but only from a couple of YouTubers whom I like and trust.

    1. I think it's because a lot of YouTubers mention the same products, and it can get repetitive for the viewer. I still enjoy them though, but I'm like you, only watch Favourites from people I fully trust x
