August Beauty Favourites

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser
Coming in at the top of August’s list since I’ve practically worn it every day this month. It’s creamy, glowy, light weight and dewy – I just love it.  Read my full review here. Available from Space NK £33/50ml here and John Lewis here.

Murad Acne Spot TreatmentThank you Murad, you’ve really helped me out this month. Luckily for me spots are a rarity but every now and then I get a pesky breakout, and my have they hit me this month. Cue Murad Acne Spot Treatment – A fast-acting spot treatment that reduces the appearance of breakouts and supports healing of blemishes. Apply a small amount directly to the spot and hey presto, watch it disappear. Ok, maybe not straight away, but this really does work. Helps to stop infant blemishes in their tracks or heal the nasty’s that have already developed. £15.20/15ml Feel Unique here

NYX Cream Blush in Glow
Deserving their own post, and they’ll get one soon, I’m super impressed with NYX Cream Blushers. I’ve been wearing Glow (a lovely bright pink) a lot this month. Don’t be fooled by its bright appearance. Despite being well pigmented it’s quite sheer yet buildable. This cream blush really makes my cheeks pop and gives a pretty youthful glow.  I apply with my Read Techniques Expert Face Brush for flawless application. Cream Blush £5.50 here.

Perfectly Pure Coconut Oil
I once called this stuff my skin saviour, then stopped using it, recently rediscovered it and have fallen in love all over again. For hair, body, face... you can even eat the stuff! My three favourite uses 1) Hair mask – massaging into the scalp and through the ends, leave for an hour or overnight if you can and rinse off – stronger, softer hair at your service. 2) Mix with rock salt to create the most amazing scrub. I did this in the bath the other night and my skin has never felt so soft. 3) An all over moisturiser. Apply after shower or bath for a truly intense moisturising experience. It melts into the skin and stays soft for days. Coconut Oil from £6.99 Holland and Barrett here

And this is me wearing the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser and NYX Glow blush



  1. Love when you do favorite post!! what is your favorite lipcolors lately?

    1. Hi Lynn. Sadly, I've had terrible cold sores on my lips so I've hardly been able to wear lip colour lately. In my handbag right now I have MAC Angel, one of my favourite pale pinks and Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss stick in nude, which is a great everyday shade that's a pretty close match to my natural lip colour - my lips but better and a little glossy. x

  2. Ooh the NYX cream blush in Glow is such a lovely color! I need to seriously find a good coconut oil around here, I know it does wonders! Gorgeous last pic of u :)

  3. I love how natural that blush looks on your skin, and the dewy finish as well...

    and your hair omg!


    1. My hair? It's a mess at the minute, so needs cutting, but thank you x
