August Beauty Favourites

This months favourites is a good mix of some some and some new. I've been trying out a few new skincare bits, treated myself to a new blush and rediscovered some old favourites. I've been wearing little makeup recently, especially when it comes to the eyes. Instead i've been opting for the highlighting, brightening and glowy look. 
August Beauty Favourites
August Beauty Favourites
Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Body Spray
Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Body Spray - £6.50 - This was randomly sitting in a drawer so I decided to dig it out. I forgot how nice this smells and for a body spray the scent really does seem to last long that some other ones. They've now brought out a few different scents so I think I might have to try a few others. 
Boots Essentials Cucumber 3 Minute Clay Mask
Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll On
REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate - £30.00 - The was sitting in my dressing table drawer, forgotten about, so i've added it back into rotation; mainly because of the price tag! Although it is expensive, it does really soften and brighten the skin amazingly. This whole range from REN is some of their best products so if you can stretch your budget it's well worth it. I've really enjoyed using this ones a week to brighten the skin. 
Boots Essentials Cucumber 3 Minute Clay Mask - £1.50 - This is one of my favourite bargain purchases that i've found in a long time. It's a clay mask, yet it is also soothing to the skin. It draws out any impurities whilst softening the skin. It's not as drying as other clay mask and is my go to, quick, skincare fix at the moment. 
Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll On - £8.99 - Another new find i've been loving. My eyes are dry and tired looking most mornings and this really helps to brighten the eyes and make them feel less tight. The metal applicator is also really cooling which makes it's extra refreshing. 
MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
L'oreal Lumi Magique Concealer - £8.49 - I used this a couple of years ago and kept meaning to repurchase it. I finally did, and i'm so happy for it to be back. I love light, brightening concealer for under the eyes and this is the best one. Once applied you can instantly see that the eyes look brighter but still light. I also sometimes use it around the nose to cover redness which works really well. 
MAC Bare Study Paint Pot - £16.00 - Carrying on with the brightening theme, i've dug out this beauty. It's the perfect, cream, champagne base which looks great alone but also as a base to any look. This has lasted me so long, even with using it practically everyday so it's definitely good value for money. 
Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake
Soap & Glory Peach Party Multi Colour Blush Brick - £11.00 - This is a new purchase for me and I can't stop wearing it. It's the perfect peachy pink healthy glow to the cheeks. It's not glittery and too pigmented so you can build it up to give a nice glow. The colours can be used alone or mixed together; you could also even use it as eyeshadows which works really well. 
Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake - £2.99 - I've been using the same lip products recently but this one ended up back in my handbag. It's a lovely peach shade which is easy to wear but also longwearing due to it's matte formula. 

So those are this months beauty favourites. As you read this I will be flying to Toronto and about to start travelling for over a week. I'm also going to America so some beauty shopping will definitely be happening so you might see a few of those bits in next months favourites. What products have you been loving this month?
