June 2015 Beauty Favourites

Here are my favourite beauty products from June (I can't believe the month is almost gone again already!)...

I always have a can of Batiste dry shampoo to hand because my hair gets oily really quite quickly. This month I picked up Batiste 'Eden' because the tropical scent I normally go for was out of stock at my local Superdrug. It is a sugar melon and honeysuckle scent and I've actually really enjoyed it. It does the job and leave my hair smelling lovely. The only thing is that you can only get this in the smaller 200ml cans (please make this scent in the larger size, Batiste!), which you can find here (currently on offer for £1.62, normally £3.29). The scent is exclusive to Superdrug I believe.

As far as eye shadow goes, I have really been enjoying putting some matte brown shades in the crease then using L'oreal L'Ombre Pure Eye Shadow in 204 'Golden Nude' (£5.49 here) on the lid. You can see that this looks a little messy now because it has been well loved! It is a very soft shadow that is almost like a pressed pigment, in a sparkly beige-gold shade. Putting mattes everywhere else means that the one sparkly shade stands out nicely.

My favourite blush this month has been the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 'Nude Mauve' (£8.99/ 3 for 2 here). I love the formula of these because they have a bit of a glow to them without being overly shimmery and they're so easy to blend. They almost blend themselves really so are brilliant if you're doing your make up in a rush. Nude Mauve is a subtle pink that's neutral enough to work with most other makeup and is a great everyday shade.

It had been a while since I used my Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour (£7.99 via FeelUnique here) and I'd forgotten just how good they are. Despite it being June, there have been some chilly, wet and blustery days this month so my lips appreciated something nice and moisturizing. These also contain SPF15 so are good if you're spending time outdoors. I've been using the shade 'Rhubarb' the most, which has quite a natural pink tint to it, although I actually own all 4 shades available.

As far as skincare goes, my skin decided to erupt with a few spots this month...probably because of a few stressful times that were enough to result in me blubbing all over my husband (and breathe!). I found myself reaching for the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Treatment Gel (£4.99 here), which is a salicylic acid treatment that reduces the size of spots overnight. I also reached more for my deep cleansing face masks in an effort to try to help the situation, including Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask (£10.50 here) and the Superfacialist by Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask (normally £9.99, currently on offer for £6.66 here).

My most worn perfume this month was Ghost Eclipse (cheapest via here), which is a lovely fruity scent that's perfect for Summer.
