June Favourites

How behind am I? I know it's like 2 weeks into June but this is my first favourites and I was excited to do one. So bear with me because I found it quite hard not just to chuck everything into this post as I got so many nice things in June!

Makeup Favourites
I've not actually used that much new makeup in June, none that qualify as a new favourite anyway but I've rather rediscovered old favourites. I've had the Clinique Chubby Stick in Whoppin' Watermelon (£17 which I don't think I'd pay for personally, but this was a free gift) for about 2 years as I got it in one of those gift bags you get if you spend over a certain amount. I used to hate it because pink wasn't really my shade and I thought it was too balmy. Now, I pair it with Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob (£3.99) to great the perfect colour. The liner is very matte and so I use the stick very lightly over it and it creates such a nice pink colour that I've been wearing as an easy everyday shade!

Fashion Favourites
I don't know if sunglasses count as fashion but they're definitely more in this category. I love these sunglasses! They're in this cat-eye shape that I've been seeing everywhere lately and have a cute leopard print rim. These were really cheap as well and the quality is great. They're really sturdy and the colour provides great protection for your eyes, which is something you rarely see in cheap sunglasses. 
I bought these from eBay but I can't find the specific page as I bought them ages ago. Here are some similar ones.

Fragrance Favourites
I've been using the same perfume for ages now and I haven't actually tried any new ones though I am dying to get my hands on some! So my fragrance favourite is this Aloe Vera & Mint Anti-Perspirant from Marks & Spencer which is also only £1! It seems really weird that this would be a favourite but I've kind of fell out with bog standard spray deodorant as I've found it irritates under my arms, especially after shaving. This is lovely and gentle and I've found it's not irritated my skin. The scent is really fresh and probably wouldn't appeal to those who like floral and girly scents, really it's not something I'd go for either. However, the scent lasts all day and I've even found when the weather gets stupidly hot, I don't have to apply again! If I feel I have to, it's usually about 8 hours after the first application. 

Skincare Favourites
I've tried so many new skincare products throughout June, which is probably not great for my skin or my bank balance. However, I'm glad I did because my skin feels great and I've discovered some great new brands. I reviewed this Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix cleanser here & I really enjoyed it then, I'm still enjoying it now. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean and cleansed without being drying. I complained a bit about the price for the size, but I would definitely repurchase this as my skin feels so much better after I use it. It's also great for removing makeup. You can find it at Boots for £5.30 here as it's currently on offer!
My other skincare favourite is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo which has significantly improved my skin since I've been using it. I only use it once a day but I've seen such a reduction in blemishes and my skin looks the best it's been in forever! Check out my other French skincare in my haul here

Another favourite is this Sunkissed Instant Bronzing Mousse in Dark which is £3.99 from Superdrug. I am super pale and so when I go out or when I feel like I'm getting extra pale, I always fake tan. Now, this is in the shade dark and that may seem extreme but I'm have really fair skin, but it goes on beautifully. It doesn't go really orange and it's so easy to apply! This has been my favourite fake tan for a while and it's so affordable. I always go back to this one, especially if I can't afford to splash out on tans such as St Tropez. 

So that's it for my June favourites! I know it's mega late but it was fun to make and I look forward to posting my July favourites already.

P.S. I'm currently on holiday, sunning it up in Ayia Napa, so expect a delay in replies and such! 

Til' next time! XOXO
