June Loves

June has been and gone, I cant believe we are now in  the month of July! Wow, 2013 seems to be flying past so fast. I have a mixed bag for you this month, I have been loving my blushers this month and skin care bascially. The month of June was a good one for me, my sons birthday and I am coming to the end of my degree. Things are going well, the sun is shinning and well, life is good.....

Bloom Remedies Gentle Moisturiser*
I have been using this cream each morning for the last few weeks, its a lovely light formula and I find it absorbs easily into my skin well. In fact its a good base for my make up. This is from the sensitive skin range with organic Rose and calming Chamomile. This has been soothing and calming on my problematic skin. I would love to try more from this range, I hear good things about the toner and eye make up remover, I love everything I have tried so far, its a lovely brand.

Bodhi Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil*
I declared my love for this product in a recent post. I use this oil both morning and night times. I use 1-2 pumps, this does not sound a lot but believe me this covers my face and neck with ease. I sometimes add a drop or two to my moisturising cream. The scent is like no other, I love to inhale the aroma from my hands its so relaxing. I have awful combination skin that breaks out, if you do to please take my advice and purchase a bottle of this oil. I promise you this will make a dramatic difference to your skin.

Bodhi Mint The Temple Balm*
This little pot of balm has really helped me great through this last few weeks, my only wish is that I had this in my possession a few months ago! I carry my Mint The Temple Balm everywhere with me, home, work well just everywhere. In fact I am dabbing away now, I love to inhale a deep breath and relax. I cant wait to try out the various uses for this balm, it will certainly be travelling with me later on this year.

A blogger cult product, I fell for the hype and caved in. I really enjoy using this balm, its heavenly scented with Rose and leaves a thick layer over your lips. Its extremely moisturising.

Lancome Effet Miracle #02*
This has been unloved in my collection for many months. I had run out of my beloved Clarins primer and wanted to buy another. I stopped myself and thought no I will be good and use up what I have first. This provides a good base for make up, I take a small pea size amount and smear over my t zone. My only advice is don't use too much, it will cake up when mixed with foundation.

Loreal Color Infaillible #Sahara Treasure 021
This is a good enough dupe for Armani Eyes To Kill, but for a fraction of the price! I own both so have been able to try them next to each other. I am a natural girl when it comes to shades, this works perfectly for day time and work wear. The formula is cream/pigment/powder, hard to explain, its extremely pigmented and a little goes a long way.

Dior Addict Extreme #Saint Tropez
I searched for months for this lipstick, until I found out it was a limited collection liipstick that was only sold in USA Nordstrom. I thought my wish would never come true, until a good friend of mine in the USA sent me her's. This is the perfect sheer peachy pink liipstick. I am finding myself reaching out for this most days.

Clinique Naturally Glossy #Jet Black 01
I have been rocking this mascara for over 10 years. I always seem to go back to this one, I most certainly alwasy have one in my colelction and a back up! I love the natural glossy effect it provides, not clumps or thick lashes to be seen here. Just thin, long, glossy black lashes that never smudge or flack onto your cheeks.

Elizabeth Arden Cream Blush #Nectar 01
I stumbled accross this little beauty whilst reading an issue of Allure on my i Pad. This is a cream to powder formula, no stickiness here. I take a little onto my stiplling brush and then blend. I have been loving blushers this month.

Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow #Tansoleil
I love a good dual use product and this is a great example. If used on the lips it provides you with a semi matt finish and a dewy satin finish to the cheeks. The colour is more peachy then my Elizabeth Arden one. I want more shades from this range very soon.

Mac Powder Blush Satin #Cubic*
My beloved mum had this in her collection. I have no idea how she came accross this. I cant imagine my mum stood at the mac counter, bless her little cotton socks. On a recent visit she passed this onto me. I jumped at the chance to take it home with me. Just look at the shade, it reminds me of Nars Douceur. I have used this as a blusher alone or as a light contour shade, Perfect.

I am not sure about the name of this liquid blusher, my dear friend Jenny kindly sent me over a sample to try. I love it, you only need a tiny amount and dab onto the highest part of your cheeks for that pretty sheen. It looks so attractive when the sun catches your skin, so my hubby tells me.

Here we have my loves for the month of June, the main focus for me this month has been to try and help my skin heal and to stop breaking out. I am trying to take more care of myself not only what I put on myself but what I put inside myself. Roll on August and I will have a lot more time for myself and family. I want to start exercising again and do things I enjoy. I feel like the past 2 years has been me and my laptop, from now on the laptop will be used for my beloved blogging only.
