August Favourites.

Left to Right: Rituals Fortune Scrub, Bourjois Nude Sensation, Loreal Volume Million Lashes Feline, Huygens Exfoliating Scrub & Bourjois Round Blush Pot in the shade 41 Healthy Mix.
August has been very busy for me. This month I moved back to Brighton and now have a lovely, super centrally located flat seconds from the sea! Being back has been so nice and I am happy to report that I am actually not missing Manchester one bit! Sun and sea tops grey any day! Moving though has been very stressful and getting the new flat ready has taken quite a bit more time than anticipated which has meant less time for skincare, makeup, hair etc. I have, though, found a few great products amongst all the mess and here they are!

Clockwise: Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation, Bourjois Little Round Blush Pot in 41 Healthy Mix & Volume Million Lashes Feline Mascara.
Probably my favourite find of the month has been the Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation. My previous blog post is a review so I won't say too much as you can read all about it here. It's a light coverage that really just helps brighten up my face, evening out my skin tone and redness whilst still looking really natural. It blends really nicely, lasts well and just helps give a really healthy, natural glow.

Another find this month was also another Bourjois products. I have been wanting a peachy toned blush for a long time now but have never been brave enough until now. When I saw the Bourjois Little Round Blush Pot in the shade Healthy Mix I finally found a shade that I though I could pull off. It is very peachy toned but not too bright, like many. It's quite a soft and build able colour and it helps make my cheeks pop just a little and look really glowing and healthy.

Another products I always struggle to find is a mascara as I am very particular about them. I was previously using the Loreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara and loved it but upon wondering to boots to replace it I discovered the Volume Million Lashes Feline. I decided to try it out as it has a curved wand this time and I was glad to find that the formula was still very much the same as the original. It gives great length to lashes but also thickens them a little to make lashes look really full but not at all clumpy.

Left to Right: Rituals Fortune Scrub & Huygens Exfoliating Scrub
This month was the first time I tried out a Birchbox and I was very happy with my selection of products. This month, there were two standouts with the first being the Huygens Exfoliating Cream. Huygens is not a brand I had much about, only a few rave reviews so I was really curious to try it out. It is a really gentle facial scrub that uses rice particles to exfoliate and my skin just loves it. It really just vanishes that horrible built up feeling my skin sometimes gets but is still super gentle and since using I think I have seen an improvement in my skin!

From my Birchbox this month, I have also been loving the Rituals Fortune Scrub. I am not someone who is really into body products, I use them but they don't really interest me but this is amazing. It left my skin really smooth and I only needed a really small amount. It smelt like cola (no lie) and citrus and was just refreshing and I can't imagine being without it on a winters morning!

Have you tried any of August's Favourites?
