5 to try

Barry M Surfboard Nail Polish
I’d been struggling to find the perfect nail polish for this not so summery summer we’re currently experiencing in London. Barry M Surfboard is the perfect soft pink with a hint of lilac and really inoffensive, plus it lasts surprisingly long!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
I’m not usually a huge fan of waterproof mascara but as it’s summer I think it’s good to always have a tube to hand, in case of water flights, beach trips or hayfever. I love the original Better Than Sex Mascara and have been loving this one over the last month. I don’t think I would ever switch full time over to the waterproof one as it is so much harder to remove but it held up really well with my extreme hayfever yesterday, the rest of my makeup didn’t do so well. I’ve made a whole video dedicated to this mascara so check it out here.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
A few months back I had a skin consultation in Kiehl’s Regent St, where they recommend lots of products to help improve my dehydrated skin. One of the recommended products was this Kiehl’s oil which helps correct the visible appearance of Skin Fatigue. I’ve been using it on days that I feel my skin needs some extra TLC and have found it to really help make my skin look more glowy and healthy!

L’Oreal Cushion Foundation & Cushion Bronzer
I’ve been raving about this to anyone that will listen as I just think it’s the perfect, lightweight, buildable, summer product. The foundation is nice a glowy, just how I like it but can easily be powdered down for a more matte look. The bronzer adds a really natural looking glow/tan to the skin which I just love and can be really intensified with a powder bronzer.

Collection Deluxe Lipsticks
I always say that drugstore nude lipsticks are just as good as high-end ones and these really prove it. They remind me a little of the MAC Lustre finish lipsticks, they’re relatively sheer but buildable with an almost gloss finish. I love this sort of finish when the rest of my skin is quite matte and I think in nude colours it can look really beautiful (I would go for matte bold colours). The three that caught my eye are Baby Doll, Chicago and Liberty as they’re all beautiful, everyday nudes. I would even say Chicago is a great dupe for MAC Patisserie which is one of my favourite ever lipsticks!

Would love to hear which five products you’ve been loving recently in the comments.

1. The Body Shop Banana Shampoo £4.50
I have been using this shampoo for a while and although I like the smell I really don’t rate it highly. I don’t use the conditioner which I know lots of people rave about but the shampoo leaves my hair dry and very, very knotty.

2. Neom Organic Bath Foam £20
I was super excited to try this as I love Neom and this smells amazing! It is SLS free as you would expect from Neom so there aren’t quite as many bubbles as I would usually like but there are also no nasties! It is perfect if you are having a real me day or having trouble sleeping as the scent is so relaxing. At £20 it is quite pricey but is the perfect indulgence or great gift too.

3.Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturiser £24
I really think Kiehls is pretty expensive although they so have some amazing products, this product is okay but I think it simply takes too long to sink in to the skin so I can’t really use it as a day cream.

4. Balmi Lip Balm £4.99
This is attached to my keys and I love it! It isn’t really the most hydrating product but I do think it is really practical and I would replace it if I ever lost it. (It also makes finding your keys easier)

5. Fresh Brown Sugar Eau de Parfum $80
This is compeltely unlike any other perfume I have, it is very citrusy with lemon and tangerine notes as well as having slight vanilla notes. Might not be to everyones taste but worth a sniff if you are looking for something a little different.

6. Stylfile S Buffer £4.99
I’m in two minds about this as I do think it is a good quality buffer but I don’t see how the S shape really helps and it’s a little over priced to.

7.Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence £22.50
I have been using this for quite a few months now on a daily basis as I don’t use a traditional conditioner. It helps remove any knots and keeps it looking hydrated and healthy without weighing it down. I would highly recommend this for anyone with fine hair. I would say it is a little expensive but worth every penny.

8. Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Gentle Hydrating Cleanser £17
This is a really nice cleanser gentle cleanser with only a light scent, it leaves my skin clean without stripping it. I rate this quite highly although I do need quite a bit.
