July 2011 Favorites

Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche: Got this for my birthday, lucky me! Love this perfume so much, such a fresh summery scent with a bit of a twist. Definitely go try this one when you’re near a perfume counter.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum: I don’t know a lot about this or how it works, but I know that when I use it at night underneath my moisturiser, the next day I wake up and my skin is so glowing and bright it’s just incredible. I was given a sample of this and practically had to scrape the last drops out because it was so good. It’s a bit pricy, £41 for 30mls, but you really only need a drop each night for the whole face and neck which is supposed to ‘reduce the appearance of environmental damage, and protect against any future exposure’. As much as I love clothes and make up, I always tend to spend the most money on skincare as I think there’s nothing more important than taking care of what’s underneath everything.

Aveeno Moisturising Creamy Oil: This is the most beautiful moisturiser! Completely different to anything I’ve ever tried as it comes out like a creamy moisturiser then sinks into the skin like an oil, without leaving a greasy layer of a tacky residue that every other moisturiser in the world seems to leave. The best thing about it though and the reason I buy most products is the smell! Its main ingredient is sweet almond oil and of course, that makes it smell like marzipan! Soo gorgeous, and good enough to eat!

Boots Moisturising Nail Polish Remover Pads: I bought these on my break the other day needing to take off my chipped nail varnish quickly and didn’t think much of it. I always thought the pads were similar to make up wipes – lazy and no good. But I was wrong! They’re so much better than liquid acetone remover and a cotton pad, especially these ones which have Vitamin E in them. They take off every scrap of varnish and leave your nails lovely and moisturised!

No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream: I borrowed this sample from my mum the other night when I stayed over and, although it’s supposed to only be for over 50’s, I have to say I love it. It leaves my face so firm and soft and doesn’t disappear into my awfully dehydrated skin after five minutes. Needless to say, that one was nabbed. I’ve nearly used it all up now so I’m going to buy the full size which is a pretty ridiculous £21. I don’t think it’s quite worth that, although I shouldn’t say that seeing as I work for No7 (thank god for discount!) but it is a lovely moisturiser.

Avène Gel Cleanser: It took me so long to buy this! Every time I went to get it, Boots had sold out. Eventually though I got it and I’m so glad I did. I'm used to using rich creamy cleansers like the Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish, which is still the best cleanser in the world, but every now and then I like to use something that leaves my skin feeling cool and fresh. The gel lathers up just enough and washes off without leaving my skin feeling tight or dry. Really want to look into the rest of the Avène range after using this!
