Summer Nail Polish Picks

Summer Nail Polish Picks
In less than a week I'm jetting off to the sunny south of France with my family and lovely boyfriend, so am beginning to think about what I'll be taking with me in my suitcase.  To me, holiday nail varnish has to be bright - I love a bold mani/pedi in the sun, it makes your tan appear deeper and I love how it looks!  These are my picks for two weeks of sunbathing, relaxing and eating way too much.

Blistex Lip Treatments

Blistex Lip Treatments
Blistex Intensive Moisturiser, Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast, Blistex Medplus

I don't know many people who haven't tried an endless stream of products to improve the quality of their lips, most of us are forever looking for a product to banish dry, chapped lips without breaking the bank.  I've tried a stream of lip balms available on the high street: Nivea, Vaseline and Carmex being just a few of them, but I always find my self returning to my absolute favourite: Blistex.

Evening Skincare Routine for Oily Acne-Prone Skin

Evening Skincare Routine for Oily Acne-Prone Skin Affordable High Street Simple La Roche Posay Blistex Duac
Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion, La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel, La Roche Posay Effaclar Micro Exfoliant, Duac Gel, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, Blistex Medplus, Blistex Intensive Moisturiser

I've developed a real love for skincare recently, I'm set on finding the perfect routine to keep my skin looking healthy and glowing.  For reference, I have oily skin with some acne scarring and relatively regular blemishes.  It is a lot better at the moment than it has been in years, and although I am now confident enough to occasionally venture out of the house with a lighter coverage foundation or BB cream, I'm not quite ready to go makeup-less.  These are the products I'm using in the evenings to look after my skin before bed.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I have finally delved into the world of high-end foundations after wearing offerings from the high street for around five years.  I am a huge fan of high street brands and there are some absolute gems to be found for amazing prices, but after getting paid and reading loads of good reviews of Estee Lauder Double Wear I just had to give in to the hype and try it out.

MAC Impassioned Lipstick

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick Impassioned Bright Pink

This lipstick has been on my wish list for the longest time, and as a treat to celebrate the end of my second year at university (yippeeeee!) my lovely boyfriend bought it for me and it's been my lip colour of choice almost every day since.

May Beauty Favourites

VO5 Plump it up Volumising Spritz (review), Benefit Hoola, Real Techniques blusher brush (review), La Roche Posay physiological cleansing gel (review), Blistex Medplus, L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black, Dove Summer Glow gradual tan moisturiser

I realise this is a few days late, but there are a few things I have been loving over the last month - the first of which is this gorgeous weather! I don't know about wherever you are, but in south Wales we've had a bit of lovely sunshine - it's even had me cracking out the floral dresses and oversized shades!
