July Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites!

Today I am going to share with you all my favourites from the lovely month of July:) To be honest I can't actually believe how quickly August has come around, it seems like just yesterday it was Christmas. This year has been so mental!

My first favourite this month has been the Botanicals Rustic Pillar Candle Medium in Seafoam and Gorse - £3.50 from Tesco Direct. This candle smells so good and even makes the room smell lovely when it's not even burning. Amazing. The scent reminds me of mens aftershave but slightly more subdued if that makes any sense whatsoever. It just smells so fresh. I also believe it looks adorable.  

My second favourite this month has been the Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist in Warm Milk and Honey. This product can be purchased from most supermarkets but also from Amazon. I didn't hold out much hope for this as most natural sleep enhancing products don't work for me. However, this air freshener really helps me to sleep, I just spray it before I go to bed and it makes my room feel so cosy. 

Next up is the L'Occitane En Provence Subtle Violet Hand Cream, which unfortunately I really struggled to find when I looked for it on the internet. I know that it is sold on Ebay, however I'm not sure if it has been discontinued on the L'Occitane website. However, the hand cream is one of my absolute faves so I hope it hasn't. The scent isn't too overpowering, yet it still smells fresh and summery. I really enjoy using this product in summer as it feels really light on the skin and isn't too thick. 

Another favourite of mine from this month is the Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter, which is stocked at Boots, Feel Unique and Amazon, however at the moment it is cheapest at Boots. This lip balm is perfect for the stifling weather we have had in Britain these past few weeks, as it stops your lips from drying out and feels so refreshing. Also it has the highest amount of staying power out of all lip balms I have tried.

My favourite lipstick/lipgloss of this month has to be Maybelline New York Baby Lips in Peach Kiss. The reason for this being my favourite lipstick in the summer is because it is a neutral colour which I much prefer in the Summer to the dark red and purple shades. Also the Baby Lips feels quite moisturising when it's on your lips. 

Finally, my last favourite of the month is a makeup bag staple which I love love love.  It is the Soap and Glory Feel Good Factor Translucent BB Cream with SPF 25. The main reason for my love for this product in summer is due to the SPF levels as sometimes I will just apply this and leave without applying any other makeup products. However, in summer my skin gets a lot more oily and this product stops this from affecting my makeup application.
