August Favourites

I can't believe another whole month has passed! I have tried so many lovely things this month, it was tricky to whittle it down! My recent favourites are:
Real Techniques: Powder and Blush Brushes.
I bought these after falling in love with the Real Techniques core collection, and I love these two new additions just the same. With such soft fibres, both of these brushes pick up a fine amounts powder or blush and distribute it evenly every time, so I actually end up using less product, but without wasting any. 
Weleda: Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion*
I was lucky enough to try lots of mini Weleda products this month, keep your eyes peeled for the post coming in the next few days! This facial lotion is having such a lovely softening effect on my skin, I have really enjoyed using it! Designed for combination skin, with a light herbal and floral scent, this leaves my face feeling smooth and hydrated, and works as an excellent base for applying makeup.
The Body Shop: Radiant Highlighter*
You can read more about this in a full post here, but this cream based highlighter has become a firm favourite of mine. It adds a lovely shimmer when applied to my cheekbones with fingertips, without being too shiny. The cream formula blends well, better than some liquid based counterparts in my opinion! This product makes highlighting a quick and simple task, and has become a regular part of my makeup routine.
Boux Avenue
Not a product as such, but an entire shop! I have been to two of these now, in Bath and Bristol, and they really are my favourite underwear and lingerie store. Bright and clean, the products are displayed on rails with alternative sizing available in individual drawers underneath, similar to american lingerie stores that I have been to before. I bought a basic t-shirt bra, which is super comfy and was really quite affordable, but could have easily spent hundreds of pounds in there, as I wanted to buy it all! From gorgeous underwear sets to comfy pjs and lovely looking body and beauty products, I will definitely be going back for more!
