Summer Favourites

Summer Favourites

Oh hey there, it's been a while! My last post a few weeks ago was all about why I ditched face wipes, which you should have a read if you're interested to find out how damaging face wipes can actually be!

If you didn't know already I recently got my GCSE results and surprisingly I got all A's and A*'s (apart from a B in French lol), but I'm SUPER HAPPY with those results! So I have been very busy celebrating with friends and family, as well as working, which explains the absence from uploading across my blog and social medias. But today I'M BACK with a favourites post, I'll be talking about all the things I've loved this summer. Some things are fairly new, but have been my latest obsessions so I couldn't not include them.

Firstly, I have been seriously enjoying the delicious gluten free, natural sweets: Candy Kittens. I've eaten three full packets of these this summer already!! We ain't talkin' the pop n go bags, I'm talkin' the full-size ones! They are honestly so good, and what makes them even better is that they have no artificial colours and natural flavourings. They taste like any normal sweet, my favourites were the sour blueberry and sour watermelons YUM :).

Then we have a fragrance that I have been obsessing over which is by Ghost. It's called Whitelight Diamond Dust and it contains glitter particles allowing the fragerance to sparkle on your skin, which at first I was a little put off by but it's actually not that noticeable. I think it's quite nice to have a little shimmer on your skin, especially when the sun is shinning on you. The actual scent itself is beautiful, it's sort of like a peachy, mandarin smell (so it says and I agree). I will definitely continue to wear this until it runs out.

Whilst I was in Covent Garden in London, I stumbled across the Deciem store, which of course I headed towards. Particularly to look at The Ordinary products, and I ended up buying their Serum Foundation for only £5.70! The foundation is honestly amazing, it's one of the only foundations that exactly matches my skin tone – I don't know if it adjusts slightly/blends in well or that it just happened to be the exact shade of my skin? It's such a lovely glowy, lightweight foundation with a medium coverage, so perfect for the summer. It also seems to last all day without oxidising, which I was very impressed about. If you'd like a more in-depth review on this foundation, just let me know!

Recently I have been obsessing over the Nano Intensive Whitening Strips which are amazing! I've never tried any kind of teeth whitening product before but these strips are so good. All you have to do is apply the strips for 30 minutes every day for two weeks. I have been trying this out for around a week now and have already seen amazing results, I'm very impressed!

Lastly we have a very exciting product, something I've wanted to try for ages now! It's the Barefaced! Cleansing Brush, by Magnitone, an awesome skincare accessory brand. So far, it has helped keep my skin smooth and soft, and reduce the build up of dirt. It is also fully waterproof, so I can use it in the shower which is super handy as I hate spending ages on my cleansing routine! More snazzy information:


(wood woop)

– 'A combination of sonic oscillations + pulsed vibrations to deep-cleanse, massage and tone your skin at the same time, just like a mini workout'. So yeah it's pretty cool.

If you haven't tried one of these before then you MUST!

So that's all the things I have been loving this summer, I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading.
