August Favourites

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you my August favourites because I actually tried a lot of things in the past month and loved them all! There are 8 products I'll be sharing with you today so let's jump right in!

CND Rescue RXx Daily Keratin Treatment (RRP $34.95, find your nearest stockists here) - This has been one of my ultimate favourites this past month. A super nourishing oil treatment that smells like caramel, that helps to restore weak, brittle nails. I haven't had one major breakage since using this treatment that now I actually have to trim my nails myself because they're getting too long! I apply it liberally over all my cuticles before bed, every night. I will definitely be repurchasing this again.

ELEVEN Australia Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum (RRP $24.95, available online here) - I love all ELEVEN hair products so much because they smell so amazing (like watermellon jelly bellies - droool). Besides the smell their products work really well and this anti-frizz serum has been helping my hair in this humid weather. I apply 1/2 a pump onto my palm and warm it up in my hands and then run it through with my fingers. I find applying it directly onto the hair will weigh it down and you'll lose some of your natural volume so it definitely works best by scrunching the hair or tossing through with your fingers.

A Bee Co Bee Venom Lip Plumper (RRP ~$34, available online here) - I was very intrigued to try this little pot of lip plumper as I had never tried a product like this before. I have quite a thin top lip so was excited to see if it would make a difference! The results are definitely not major but I love the slight tingling sensation and plumpness you get within 2 minutes! It lasts for about 30 minutes on my lips but results will be different for each individual! This is not for anyone allergic to bee's unfortunately.

TLC Nails Base Coat (RRP $25, available online here) - I was a bit skeptical of this product because I'd been using OPI Nail Envy for so long and have loved the results, alas I gave this product a go and I'm so happy I did. In conjunction with the CND Rescue RXx treatment, my nails have been so strong! I even had a bad case of peeling nails over a month ago and they still haven't broken (touch wood) since using this base coat and cuticle oil treatment combo. I apply two coats of the base coat and it dries within 3 minutes. It is very fast drying and somehow makes my nails look less yellow. It also has a semi matte finish which would be perfect for males too!
The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser (RRP $17.95, available online here) - This foaming cleanser is gentle even though it smells very strong of tea tree oil. It has helped me maintain clear skin, even before and during my period (which is the worst time for my skin). I use this on my chest and face daily and it does not dry my skin out at all.

A Bee Co Bee Venom Whitening Mask (RRP ~$88, available online here) - This mask is really cool it looks just like shea butter and helps to brighten, illuminate and clear the skin. It can be left on for 20 minutes or overnight but I always stick to the 20 minute time frame. I apply it generously all over my face and it starts to dry out slightly. Once you remove it, you are left with glowing, super soft and smooth skin. 

Molton Brown Stimulating Body Polisher in Eucalyptus (RRP $70, available online here) - This body polisher is heaven. Holy moly. . .after the first use I felt so invigorated and awake. It has quite a subtle smell but it is simply divine. It has quite coarse granules in it but I'm a huge fan of a firm scrub and this works really well at removing dead skin cells. I also use it often after I've waxed my arms to avoid any ingrown hairs. Highly recommend this product, infact this brand is just blowing me away!

Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream (RRP $9.95, available online here) - I was suffering from really bad dry skin on my knuckles (from boxing and winter dryness) and really needed a good, fast absorbing hand cream and I found it! Yay! This Aveeno hand cream is the best hand cream i've tried because it actually works. It got rid of my dry skin and lasts all day and night. It has a beautiful soft oatmeal scent which I really like. If you hate waiting for your hand cream to dry, or you suffer from really dry skin, I highly recommend grabbing this!

So there are my August favourites! They are all fantastic products that I will continue to use for a long time! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know below! Thanks for reading and speak soon.
