July Monthly Favourites

Schwarzkopf Professional Silhouette Super-hold Hairspray: Wow, that's a loooong name for hairspray. I never really use hairspray as I find it usually doesn't do anything to my hair, or makes it super noticeable I have it on. However, I purchased this hairspray after I had my hair highlighted and it has actually surprised me. I suppose you could say it 'does exactly what it says on the tin'. It distributes evenly through the hair so it dries fairly quickly and also maintains a long-lasting super hold. This hairspray also doesn't stick the hair together, making it easy to brush out and is great for coloured hair as it adds exceptional shine and helps to protect against colour fading. This has to be my favourite hairspray to date! Also, it's in an amazingly HUGE can, so it'll last for a very long time!

Dove Hair Therapy Heat Protect Spray: Seeing as I always straighten or curl my hair daily, i'm always running out of heat protection to spray onto it. I first saw this product when I was watching one of Zoella's hair videos and since then, I had been rummaging through the shops to try and find it and I was super happy when I did! Other than protecting your hair, this heat protect spray also smooths and nourishes your hair, leaving it smoother for longer and is great to use if you have frizzy hair or loads of fly-aways. It also has a lovely scent that lingers in your hair throughout the day!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: Now, I know i'm a bit late on the bandwagon for this one but oh well! This stuff is amazing and so gentle on my skin. I like the fact that it doesn't have any perfume added into it because then unlike some other products, it doesn't sting when you use it or have a horrible smell. In the past when i've purchased products that are supposed to be for sensitive skin, I end up with really bad blemishes or it dries my skin out completely- however, in my opinion this stuff is fantastic on sensitive skin because it doesn't do any of that. If your thinking about buying this product, go for it! I don't know why I took so long!

Vaseline Hand Cream: This has been one of my favourite hand creams for quite a while now. I purchased this item in a smaller version without thinking too much of it and I was so shocked at how great it is I had to buy the bigger version! My hands immediately looked healthier and the cream also strengthened my nails surprisingly well- meaning that my nails didn't break as easily and nail polish lasted a lot longer! It is also fast-absorbing and not greasy, so you don't have to wait too long before you can carry on with your day-to-day activities.

Ma-Dame by Jean Paul Gaultier: This is my favourite perfume EVER! I'm absolutely rubbish at explaining smells so i'm to even going to attempt too, but it's a very feminine fragrance and the smell lasts for a very long time! Also, the packaging is very sophisticated and mature. It's great to wear in summer or for special occasions!

Red Jeans by Versace: This is one of the very first perfumes I ever got and it is still one of my favourites! I guess you could call it vintage?! This perfume is a light, fruity and floral scent that I wear almost daily. I guess it's one of those perfumes that you either love or hate, and for me, it's a definite LOVE!

Baby Rose Jeans by Versace: This is again another Versace product and also another one of my first ever perfumes! In my opinion, this has quite a different smell compared to Red Jeans as it smells more floral and also smells a little bit like baby powder?! That doesn't stop me from wearing it though! This is great to wear either daily or for special occasions :)

Born Lippy from Body Shop: I got given this as a Christmas present and it's sooo fruity! I don't think i've ever had a fruitier lip balm before. It's also one of those lip balms that you just want to eat because it smells so good! *Mmmm... strawberries* Ahem, yeah, apart from smelling absolutely lovely it also gives your lips a slight red tint, which I think is fab for summertime.
