Wow July has gone by so quickly hasn't it. It's been great here in Germany for the most part as the weather was super hot and sunny which I liked (although I sometimes wished I had a swimming pool nearby to just quickly hop in to cool off a bit).
There have been quite a few products I love in the past month and I thought I'd share them with you :-)
Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Ultimate Oil Elixir Express-Repair-Conditioner:
I recently picked this up as I was looking for some help with my extremely dry and strawy hair. I like using it both on my wet hair as well as in between washes on dry hair in an attempt to make look a bit more smooth and make it feel nicer. I really like the spray because it is a no-fuss product that I can easily apply and that gives me instant results. I know this won't repair my hair at all though but I didn't expect that anyway. Overall I really like it and I would definitely repurchase it.
L'Oreal Hair Expertise Ever Rich/ Ever Riche Intense Hair Mask:
I bought this hair mask shortly after I bought the spray- in conditioner above to help me nourish my hair even more. I use it about 2-3 times a week instead of my usual conditioner and I love the smoothness is gives to my hair. I won't say too much about it though as I posted a review on that right here. :-)
Real Techniques Powder and Blush Brush:
These two beautiful make up brushes are my absolute favourite. My lovely friend Alice from Pretty Wonderful sent them to me as a gift, amongst other things ,and I really love them. They are super soft and very good quality in my opinion and since they aren't available in Germany I was over the moon when I received them. <3
Please make sure to check out Alice's fab Blog and Youtube channel too as she does great posts and videos and is a lovely girl on top of that :-)
Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara:
This mascara was another gift from Alice and I started liking it a lot over the past month. Depending on which of the two lids you unscrew the brush has more or less product on it (at least I think thats the trick behind it ;-)) and therefore can create length or volume. I like the two different options and appreciate that it doesn't make my lashes look clumpy either. Again Rimmel is another Brand thats not available in Germany (anymore) so I will try and not use it too often so that I won't use it up too quickly.
I love Essie Nailpolishes so when I was looking for a neutral, elegant and quite natural shade I reached for Essies Mademoiselle as I've heard a lot of people liking it. As with most Essie nailpolishes it is easy to apply, dries fairly quickly and lasts on my nails a fair amount of days. I noticed though that it seems to be slightly more flexible and soft than other colours as I noticed that it doesn't chip off but rather developes little sticky up bits that can be easily pulled of (if that makes sense?!). I still like it though and have worn it a lot during the past month. I think it might be a good colour for upcoming job interviews too as it is very subtle.
Annemarie Börlind Natural Beauty After Sun Soothing Lotion:
My mum gave this after sun lotion to me some time last month and I like that it smells very nice and fresh and isn't too sticky either. I keep it in my fridge so that it is extra refreshing after a day out in the sun. It is rather pricey as it can be between 10- 15 Euros but thats mainly because it is natural cosmetics and they are usually more expensive than normal drugsstore products.
La Roche Posay Effaclar K:
After trying the Effaclar Duo Creme for some time now, I went straight back to this one as my night cream because I think it just has a much better effect on my skin. I tend to use it only once a day (mostly at night) since it can be a bit too drying if I use it too much but overall I really like it. I only wish it was a little bit cheaper than 12-14 Euros for 30ml.
So these were my July Favourites.
I hope you enjoyed them.
Have a nice day :-) xx
