June Favourites

Every June I have a moment where I ask my self where the heck does time go and this year has been no exception. Working Mom, new job, I've also been eating a lot healthier as of late too which is crazy as I will always have a strong passion for all things deep fried. Who is this girl? There has been big changes this year, but never have I been so excited for the future... So I welcome the rest of 2017 with open arms. 
Sorry I got a little carried away there, self reflections aside we are here to talk favourites and that is what I plan on doing. So let's get the show on the road people, because I have some amazing summery things to share with you! 

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub
I love a good acid exfoliator, but the truth is every now and then we all need a good, gritty, get your circulation going kind of scrub. Let Acure's Brightening Facial Scrub be that scrub for you. This scrub is gentle yet provides enough grit to really deep cleanse the skin. I also really like that scrub is not stripping, in fact the formula really nourishes your freshly cleansed skin. For more information you can read my full review (here). 

Hard Candy Colour Correct Cushion Wonder 
This corrector is excellent, lightweight, easy to blend and neutralizes the heck out of dark circles. I would even go as far as to say this is one of the best correctors I've usedboth drugstore and department store. Up there with the ranks of Bobbi Brown, Hard Candy's corrector is amazing and should be every makeup bag! 

Skin So Soft 
Sure, Skin So Soft can be used as a bath soak, but if you had a clever mother with a Avon lady you would know this product also doubles as a mosquito repellent.  It does work well as a bath soak and makes a great dry oil but for me this smells like summer vacation in a bottle. The ingredients could be better in this product, however the scent keeps me reaching for time after time again. 

NARS Laguna 
Last but finally not least, my ultimate summer product is hands down NARS Laguna Bronzer. This bronzer gives the right kind of bronze without making me look orange. On the other hand the slight shimmer makes my face look alive but without looking like a disco ball. Over the years I've probably gone though over 10 of these and I keep on coming back for more. Better then rest, I love Laguna its the perfect touch of bronze for those who are pale like me. 

L'Oreal Lash Paradise
Last but most definitely not least is L'Oreal's new Lash Paradise. This mascara is perfect, because it last's all day, gives amazing volume and awesome length. To make things better the formula is super black and very dramatic. Lash Paradise has been taking the internet by storm recently and for good reason because it's seriously that good! Review here.

Bronzer, mosquito repellent and a correct for when you've consumed to many glasses of rose... I feel like this has been a quint essential summer favourites post! Thank you all for taking the time and reading today and I wish you all a happy and safe long weekend. 


  1. I really need to pick up the L'Oreal mascara and the Color Corrector. I've been trying the Nyx corrector and it seems to be good.

    1. The Hard Candy corrector is amazing, I seriously can't recommend it enough!
