July favourites/summer essentials

After months of cold weather and rain, we were finally treated to a heatwave in July. So not surprisingly, this month's favourites has turned into a bit of a summer essentials post:

July favourites

Starting off with a daily essential, and this month it's all about Jurlique citrus shower gel. With a creamy citrus scent, moisturising ingredients and the ability to foam up lots, it really does tick all the boxes. Plus it comes with a handy plastic pump, which means no more struggling in the shower with difficult lids!

He shi dark foaming mousse is an old favourite, but with the recent heatwave, it's been a welcome rediscovery. The fake tan is tinted so you can see exactly where it's been applied, and I like the fact that you don't have to moisturise beforehand. Like most fake tans, it's got that biscuity smell, but it always washes off to reveal a long lasting natural looking tan.

With more skin on show this month, I've been making a real effort to moisturise more. And at the moment I'm loving Soap and glory the firminator. Having only used it for a few weeks, it's too soon to judge it's firming effects. However what I can say is that it's a great moisturiser, smells amazing, and thanks to the peppermint and citrus extracts, nice and cooling on the skin too.

Skincare wise, I've swapped my usual day cream for Elemental herbalolgy cell food radiance and vitality serum. Not only is it free from chemical nasties, it's also got a whole host of natural plant extracts and anti-oxidants. The serum is especially designed for dull/stressed out skin, and since using it I've noticed a real difference in skin tone and radiance. My skin feels a lot more nourished and less sensitive too.

Ps. You can see my summer make up favourites here.

Have you tried any of the products above? What are your favourites this month?
