Monthly Favourites

soap and glory super tonic fragrance

I've been spritzing away with this Super Tonic Fragrance ever since I got it! If you like their Orangeasm range then you'll love this spray. The scent doesn't last long on the skin (about an hour or so) but I like that it's light and fresh. It is really cooling, as it has mint in it and like I said, I've been using this quite a lot over the past two months and I still have over half a bottle left. I hope they release other Super Tonic fragrances! I would love to see a Sugar Crush one! I'd snap that right up! More on the Soap&Glory's Orangeasm range here.

Bria Organic Body Butter*
Bria is a very small brand that specialises in organic oils and balms that is gentle enough to use on babies skin. Good enough for baby, good enough for me! If you suffer from eczema or have sensitive skin, you might be interested in Bria! Their products are natural, free from synthetics and artificial fragrances. The ingredients are chosen for their soothing, moisturising and calming properties. I've been trying the Bria Organic Body Butter and Repair Replenish Balm. The latter (shown in the last picture below) is odourless and works well to sooth itching, chapped skin, burns and scalds, but the body butter contains May Chang and Lemongrass (which is my favourite out of the two) is extremely moisturising on skin. I use this on my hands, cuticles, feet, legs, and arms. Both can be purchased from the Bria website

I have loads of these! I've already blogged about these EOS lip balm spheres a couple of years ago and I'm going to be doing a blogpost on natural lip balms so I'll save my natter for that! The EOS lip balm spheres are one of my favourites and the lemon one has been by side throughout August!


best face cleansers, liz earle hot cloth cleanser

Whenever someone is new to Balance Me and asks what product to try, I always say their Radiance Face Mask. It's a face scrub, cleanse and face scrub all in one! This multi-tasker buffs and polishes, unclogs pores and ensures your face looks radiant, plump and hydrated with immediate results. I first used it last year and have gone through two tubes of it (the one pictured being my third) and I've recently re-discovered it.

If I could, I would feature this in every single monthly favourites! I blogged about it last week so hop over here if you'd like to read the full review! The formula is the same as the original (with the addition of the new scent) but unfortunately, this has now been discontinued. Fret not! It won't be long until the next limited edition bottle! I'll be going back to the original one until then!


best shampoo for dry hair, bumble and bumble creme de coco

This is the shampoo I've been using all Summer. It is expensive but it has lasted me the whole season and I reckon I can get 5 or 6 washes from what is left in the bottle. It has been a great product to use as it has kept my hair light, shiny whilst taming frizz without making my hair limp and flat. With so many choices in the Bumble&bumble range and with lots of new releases, I am keen to try something else, but I'll get another bottle of Creme De Coco when Summer comes round again. (Read full review here)


LUSH D'fluff, strawberry shaving soap

I've enjoyed using this little tub of strawberry shaving soap, which I first blogged about in this LUSH haul. Almost half of it is gone already but I'll be repurchasing once the tub has emptied! D'fluff is from LUSH and is a great alternative to shaving gel, which can sometimes feel quite drying on my legs. In fact, anything that foams up tends to dry my skin out and I end up trying to "fix" it with lotion, so I'm delighted that LUSH have come up with a substitute. This scent is a lot nicer and stronger when applied to skin, it smells so good but that's no surprise as it is made from fresh strawberries, golden syrup, egg whites, coconut oil and cocoa butter. Lovely and moisturising!

beauty blogger monthly favourites

A bit of a random one to round up this post, but my non-beauty favourite of this month is Walker's pulled pork crisps!

  8. Most of these products I haven't heard of but I'm kinda eager to try. I've been wanting to try some hair products from Bumble and Bumble but the cost has held me back. However, everyone including you seems to really love their products. The quality seems to be amazing and well, I do want my hair to look amazing, aha. I dunno, maybe when I have money I'll give their products a try!

    I also love the EOS lip balms, I had one but I have no idea where it went! I like how their lip balms are not thick and sticky like others can be, it's why I really don't care for chapstick.

    This was a great list of favorites. :)
