August 2017 Favourites

Tuesday, 29 August 2017

I've not done a favourites post since October last year and the reason is because I either don't manage to get a post up in time or because I don't have things to talk about. BUT, I've managed to get ahead of myself this time and I have myself products to talk about before it's too far into the next month. Although it's not many things, I'm doing a post of them anyway.

So, this month my skin has been a little outrageous, where in the middle of the month, I broke out and me being me, picked some of the spots, which then turn into nasty scabs (naughty!) It wasn't cute at all! So I gave myself a little smack on the hand and went to seek what could help my skin recover. I actually purchased this a little while ago based on some other bloggers talking about it but used it only a few times then just put it away with the rest of my skincare things and it got a little lost. I picked this little beauty up and it's helped massively. This is the Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil. It contains lots of different oils, including reship and sweet almond oil, which smells really good and kind of helped with my sinuses a little. It only took about 2 days for the worse to go and then when I remembered to put it on at night before I go to bed, it looked so different in the morning that I could tell it did something in the night. I think you could use any kind of skin therapy oil if you need to help with some break outs but this is just the one I grabbed to see what it would do. There's probably better products out there that could have done the job but this worked for me. Definite miracle worker. Thanks Palmers!

Moving on to my next favourite. Something that I have mentioned in a favourites before (I've only done two so probably not hard to find) but I've been loving again is Green/Fruit tea. I've not had this for a long time and when I started drinking it again, I wondered why I even let myself stop. A flavour that I love in particular is the Apple and Pear one from Twinings. It's my absolute favourite one to drink and I've also been having Mango and Strawberry, which is also enjoyable to drink. I'm glad I've brought this back into my life and want to start exploring lots of new flavours in the near future so you may see another feature of Green/Fruit tea in another favourites post (if I get round to doing another one).

Onto the smelly items of my August favourites. I've been looooooving the Imperial Leather Cherry Bakewell shower cream. The smell is just... lush. This is probably the only shower gel I've used this month and already got through a bottle of it. When you lather and massage it onto the skin (which, might I add is suitable for all skin types), it foams up, which is super soft on the skin and leaves it smelling sweet. Luckily, not too overpowering that somebody may want to eat you. It's probably a smell that you either like or don't like but I definitely do.

My last favourite of the month is the Palmer's Moisture Rich Shampoo and Restoring Conditioner. Like other Palmers products, it contains it contains their coco butter formula, with added Vitamin E. Alongside this, they both contain peppermint oil which, for the shampoo, refreshes and stimulates your scalp and with the conditioner, it nourishes scalp and hair. So these two together will provide healthy hair growth and leaves your hair silky soft, which sounds like a great combo. I personally think it smells good although my boyfriend has stated a few times that my hair smells like vomit (thanks dear) and I have no idea why. Again, it's something I've used pretty much all throughout August and just about to run out now so I'm either going to buy more or maybe see what else is new on the market.

So that's my favourites for the past month. Is there anything we've both enjoyed? Or anything you recommend I use in future months?
