My Favourites: June Edit
Welcome back to another monthly favourites edit where I talk through the products I've loved the most throughout the month and have been using over and over again. June is a mix up of the best cream products for maintaining dewy, sweat free skin in this major UK heatwave and the skincare that's been keeping blemishes obey and luminosity on a high.
Surprise, I'm back with another face oil to throw into the mix and this time it's from my new favourite skincare brand, Oskia. This is everything you should look for in a face oil; hydration, re-balancing, radiance-boosting and rejuvenating due to it's incredible blend of nutrients, floral oils and extracts including Evening Primrose, Sunflower Seed, Sea Fennel and Lupin Seed which all aid in the soothing, toning, radiance restoring and strengthening of the skin. It's the perfect oil for all face types as it's gentle but incredibly effective and since using this for around a month, my skin has never been clearer or glowier.
Refreshing, cooling and hydrating these amazing eye patches feature Patchology's HydraSurge5 Moisture System and Caffeine to boost micro-circulation, instantly de-puff and refresh the eye area. Eye gels are one of my favourite of the face masks and I tend to apply them everyday of the week to help with the luminosity of my eyes and dark circles. These pick me up gels are the best yet and my new favourite 'sheet/gel mask' brand for their fun, cool girl packaging and mega effective products.
This masks so well that with it's eye wateringly high price point of £90, I'm going to savour every last scoop and use only when my skin needs it. Saying that, Ive already applied it 5 times as it just works so well. Think immediate radiance facial and bright skin that looks healthy, toned, smoother and you've got the Omorovicza midnight mask. What makes this so special is the Sand Lily and Salicylic Acid that gently exfoliate and boost cell renewal whilst the gel texture that melts onto the skin, leaving an almost cold effect on the skin.
Another blog post, another beach tint feature but these tubes of coloured jelly beach tint deserve every highlight on here that they get. With a global cult following, BECCA have created cheek and lip stains that compliment every skin tone and create a stunning lit from within glow layered over makeup or worn alone. I've been mixing Fig and Watermelon lately to create a tailored blush that flatters my bronzed complexion and perks up the cheeks. Fig is a subtle dusk pink/nude that stood out to me the most but is best mixed with a brighter shade such as Watermelon, a bright pink/red to create a lovely Summer hue on the cheeks. These work best blended in with fingers or a flat brush and the Vitamin E helps make cheeks look even more healthy and awake. Long lasting cheek and lip colour that is perfect for Summer makeup looks when you don't want to wear a huge amount of makeup but still want to look polished.
The first of the brands makeup/skincare hybrid product and one that has completely won over the beauty industry. This facial moisturiser has been infused with Pomegranate Extract and Illuminating Minerals to give skin an instant golden glow whilst hydrating and prepping for makeup at the same time. I've loved using this on the skin alone when I'm not wearing anything but a cream blush as it lets the skin breathe and glow all the while looking perfected but it works equally as well patted over the cheek bones as a highlighter, mixed with foundation or worn as a primer. A true multi-tasking glow giver that deserves a place in all makeup bags.
Another Summer makeup essential from Becca that I've been using every time I apply makeup lately; a versatile bronzing fluid that gives any complexion a lit from within 'back from holiday' golden glow that smooths any imperfections with it's blend of illuminating pearls. As my skin has become naturally brown from the UK sun these past couple of weeks, I've been using this all over as my bronzer/ base in one and I love the holiday look it gives to the skin.
