In June I’ve Loved…

June 29th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

Being that we already are coming at the end of June, I’ve rounded up all the things I’ve loved this past month, and this time I have a few beauty but also non-beauty favourites I want to share with you, and some will come with no surprise if you’re a faithful reader of this little blog of mine…

{Makeup} This month I wore makeup like 10 times maximum but I’m sticking to only a few products as the temperatures are rising and I don’t really want to have lots of stuff going around there – I’ll share my kind of makeup routine for summertime late the next week, however two of those products have to be mentioned in this favourites post: I’m back in love with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (£22) of which I have the shade Custard which is way too dark for my pale skin in winter and spring, but that is perfect right now – I’m using it literally everywhere, under my eyes to cover dark circles, on spots, scars and blemishes, on discolorations and anywhere else I feel I need a bit more coverage. The other makeup product I’m loving is the L’Oréal Telescopic False Lash Effect Mascara (£9.35): now, I was a fan of the original Telescopic mascara and I think they made a huge mistake when they decided to discontinue it, however this new formula and in particular the waterproof one (which is perfect for summertime and hold the curl perfectly) is pretty good as well and the only mascara I want to wear now that my stock of the original version is completely gone.

{Skincare} I shared my summer skincare staples here earlier this month and I’m sticking to all of them recently, however I can not go without mentioning how I’m loving the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel (£12.31), a lovely non-foaming gel cleanser perfect for removing makeup, dirt and oil, which contains papaya extracts that lightly exfoliate the skin in the meanwhile, this is such a fresh, gentle and nice product to use on a daily basis during summertime. Talking about fresh feelings, I’m kind of back in love with the Caudalie Beauty Elixir (£9.20) even though, if you ask me, I would never repurchase it when it’s all finished, but it’s nice to have a fresh spray to apply on your face during the day, whether you’re wearing makeup or not, just to refresh it all now that it’s so hot. Lastly but not at least, my boyfriend has always been a fan of the Breeze deodorant and I’ve only recently tried it myself, and I’m in love, I won’t ever smell bad in my life again. I don’t know if you can get it outside of Italy, however this uk based website sells and ships them if you’re interested!

{I’ve been obsessed with…}
– Hay Day (free), I’m hooked again, I just can’t stop.
– This H&M Satin Blouse (£12.99) which is just the one for me right now and which has had a dedicated blog post earlier this month here if you want to find out more.
– The One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book (£10.99) of which you can read more in yesterday’s post – but it’s just lovely and so cute!
– These vegan chocolate pancakes: they’re delicious!
– These beauties.

What are you loving recently?

    I have one of those memory books too! Finding it hard to keep up with writing every day though, I’ll go back and do several days at once which is not the idea at all :’) xx

    • Not ideal at all, it happens to me as well but luckily not that often! x

  • I have the Q&A 5 year journal and am on my second year of it, still finding it hard to remember to write in it each night. Once I’ve finished it I might buy this one as it gives you a bit more freedom in what you’re writing and is more like a journal 🙂 xx

    • Yes in this one you can write anything really! However the Q&A one sounds interesting as well! x

    I really want to try this L’Oreal mascara, might have to check it out! I’m usually a huge fan of their mascaras and rarely buy any other brand! x

    • I only buy their mascara as well, they have the best formulas in my opinion! x

    • You should try it, it’s such a good mascara! x

  • Id love to try Telescopic! x

    I’m a big fan of NARS Creamy Concealer too – can’t believe I’ve only recently discovered it! I think my love for June is Sisley 2 (Perfume) – an old favourite I just keep coming back to…x

    • That concealer is amazing, I’m a fan! x

  • I don’t think I’ve seen this L’Oreal packaging over here yet, it’s so sleek and futuristic!

    On another note, I could not get into the Caudalie Beauty Elixir hype. I understand the smell is supposed to be natural and soothing but I can’t get into it. I hear it is really lovely on the skin though. This month, for skincare, I’ve been saved by the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (which isn’t even mine, it’s my BF’s!). I swear, lifesaver for people with dry, flaky skin.

    • We don’t have it here as well, I picked up mine in the UK!

      I actually really like the scent of the Beauty Elixir but don’t think it’s that necessary at all on my skin. It’s a fancy step in my skincare routine but nothing else for me! The First Aid cream sounds fab! x

  • I have that memory book, i’m in the 4th year now. So nice to look back on the year before to see what you was up too 🙂

    • Can’t wait to be able to look back to what I was doing this year! x
