June Favourites

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Carrieanne and I thought we would do a post on our June favourites but with a little bit of a twist. We thought it would be fun and hopefully useful to highlight 3 products each that we have been loving through June including an old faithful such as a re-buy or everyday use item, a new discovery that we have bought or tried for the first time and fallen for and a most recommended which would be a bargain, quality dupe or just something we are raving about.
So here goes...
Lisa’s favourites
Old faithful – Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizer Skin Refinisher

This has to be one of the very few products I continue to re-buy, I have been using this for a couple of years. It leaves my skin feeling lovely and smooth, it is a great base for foundation and as a bonus it smells divine kinda like lemon sherbets  : ). I can do a full review on this if people are interested.
New discovery –Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Light

If you have visited our blog before you may remember I have done a review post on this recently Here  I had my eye on this for sooooo long and finally bit the bullet, I can’t believe i waited so long, it make such a difference to the longitivity of my foundation and it feels great. I will definitely be re-buying this.
Most recommended – Mac Mineralize Skinfinish (Soft and Gentle)

I was dying to try this after deciding i would prefer a powder  highlighter over the Benefits watts up cream stick highlighter and I wasn’t disappointed. it is a beautiful colour and is a must have for the summer season.

Not for me - Estee Lauder, Pure Color Lipgloss

I was so dissapointed in this lipgloss as i had alwas been so impressed with other Estee Lauder products but this gloss was so sticky and leaked all over, the only positive was the colour, i bought it in Shocking pink which is a nice every day kinda colour.

Carrieanne's favourites

Old faithful - Temple Spas In The Beginning 

I love this i have been using it on and off for the past 3 years and keep going back to it. It makes my skin so soft. It just melts into the skin and feels amazing. 

New Discovery - Givera Green Tea Exfoliating Gel

This stuff is totally amazing I can't believe the difference this has made and it gets me excited every time I see it working. It removes all the dead skin without been harsh on your skin there is not gritty bits or beads it is just a clear gel but the amount of dead skin you see accumulating when you rub it in is brilliant. 

Most recommended Benefits Pore Fessional

I have been wearing this on a daily basis on top of my moisturiser just on my nose and top of cheeks 
and I love this so much makes my foundation apply so smoothly. I can see myself using this quite
 alot in the future and a few repurchases will be made. 

Not for me - Jelly Pong Pong Mascara

I received this in a Glossy box and was really excited to use it but I have tried on a few occasions this month and just can't get on with it. It says its thickening and lengthening but I just can't see any thickening to it leaves them like spiders legs. I won't be repurchasing this one! 

Hope you like our little twist on the monthly favourites and thanks for reading
