July Favourites

 Hey everybody! So I've finally gone ahead and created a beauty blog which I've been wanting to do for a while now. I thought I would start by doing a quick July favourites post. I know it's not the end of the month yet but I wanted to do it because I've been using these products all month and I really like them.

01. Lancôme Nutrix Royal Body - Instant Nourishing Dry Body Oil.
This oil is amazing. As it says in the title, this is a dry oil, so it's not thick or sticky feeling (from unabsorbed product) like some body oils. It contains 10 botanical oils to nourish the skin - it feels amazing all day long. I use mine as soon as I get out of the shower when my skin is still warm so it absorbs better. It also comes in a handy spray bottle so there is no mess or quantity overload associated with an open topped bottle. It has a very fresh scent to it, I can't put my finger on it but it has a lovely clean smell.

02. Chanel Le Vernis - Particuliere
The most gorgeous nail polish shade I have ever come across. Limited edition and fresh off the runway. It is a greyed taupe hue that applies perfectly opaque after two coats. When dry, the polish is shiny enough not to require a top coat however it would be recommended to set polish and prevent chips. I have been wearing mine for 4 days straight now and I haven't had a chip yet.

03. Moroccan Oil - Oil Treatment for all Hair Types
Yes, another oil! I'm having a bit of a moment with them. I read about this in a magazine and thought it sounded too good to be true. Like the Lancôme oil, this one has very rapid absorption. I use a teensy bit on towel dried hair (just less than the size of an old five cent piece) and apply to ends and mid-lengths only. It's a very light oil and not greasy (you're only using a small amount) but I still wouldn't use it on my roots as it would probably weigh it down too much. It's key ingredient is the argan oil which comes from argan trees endemic to Morocco. It makes your hair feel super soft and silky and provides a nice shine. The hairdresser told me that with repeated use the oil will act as a heat protectant also for use with flat irons etc (?). It makes my hair smell really good too which is a must :) I reckon this is going to last me absolutely ages because it is 100ml and I really am only using a tiny amount.

04. Simple - Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes
I've been through countless packets of these purely because they work and they are relatively cheap - you can pick them up from the supermarket. I like the simple wipes because my skin goes through periods of real sensitivity and these are fragrance, colour, alcohol and harsh chemical free. They remove all of my make-up, even waterproof mascara. I generally don't have that much energy at night to go through a huge skincare regime but I know it's important to remove my make-up. I keep them right next to my bed with some moisturiser so that no matter what, I will always have clean skin before going to sleep!

Kind of a short first post, but I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know your thoughts on these products. If you have tried them etc. Have a good week everybody!

  2. Air Jordan 5 Retro Black And Grey, Reasons this makes sense include that most of our forests are or publicly owned assets and are also the territories of First Nations. And many Interior forests are in trouble largely because logging companies did the same thing over and over again they clear cut vast areas of forest, then replaced them with plantations heavily weighted to one tree species lodgepole pine. Now many of those pine trees are dead due to insect attacks, disease outbreaks and wildfires, all of which are increasing in severity due to climate change..

    That genre of clothing was unknown for so many years and done by people who weren't accepted in the fashion world. But it's all fashion now, Christopher says. The tipping point, he believes, was when Kim Jones, now artistic director of Dior Homme, orchestrated the 2017 Vuitton x Supreme collaboration when he was a men's wear designer at Louis Vuitton. {tag: Yeezy Boost 350 Supreme White}

    Yellow White And Black Jordan 1, The empty grocery store shelf has become a symbol of all the fear and frustration caused by a society tipped upside down by a global pandemic, with people baking rather than celebrating the start of barbecue season, hoarding toilet paper and buying even dusty canned food off shelves.But for the people who pay close attention to the national food supply chain, empty shelves aren that big or scary a problem. The more complicated problems are expected in the near future, as the system encounters bottlenecks in production caused by potential labour shortages at farms or virus outbreaks at processing plants.Those issues sound like coronavirus specific problems, but some of the underlying weaknesses were there beforehand and they can be fixed in time for the next crisis. But they really don have much to do with the recent rash of empty shelves at your local grocer.Empty shelves, while frustrating for consumers, are easy to figure out.


Thanks for stopping by my blog! You've made my day :)
I love reading and appreciate all your comments.
