More June Favourites

A: Following Chloe’s June Favourites post, I’ve decided to show you what I’ve been loving this month.

Avon Ideal Luminous Shimmer Block

I got this a couple of month’s ago from my lovely Avon lady for just £6, an introductory offer price (this is something Avon are always really good at so keep an eye out on their new products!). It’s really nice to use because the colours are so blendable and also super versatile. I’ve been using the darker half as bronze/contour and the lighter colours as highlighter/eyeshadow, and they last all day. Perfect for some extra colour in the Summer, find it here.

Collection Hot Look Nail Polish

I got this orange colour for my birthday in April and I’ve been saving it for Summer. The shade is called ‘scorched’ – it looks really good on, with a slight shimmer. It dries super quickly and is pretty long lasting too, even without a top coat – impressive considering I’ve found it on the Boots website for £1.99 (here).

Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm

This is pretty boring I’m afraid, but with all of this warm weather we’ve been lucky to have, I like to keep my lips super hydrated and this has been my go to balm for years (probably about 10 – that’s pretty scary). I don’t need to go on about it, it does what it says on the tin and I love it, my boyfriend even keeps some in his van (but don’t tell anyone I told you!). Available here for just £1.65.

Bomb Cosmetics Little Hottie Wax Melts and Oil Burner

This one is a bit of a re-discovery. My boyfriend bought me this last year (for Valentine’s I think?!) and I used it so much, but ran out of wax melts and never got any more so whilst Chloe and I were at our local shopping centre last month I decided to treat myself to some. Firstly, you need to buy a burner and a stash of (non-scented) tea-lights. You then choose your wax melts. There’s literally tonnes to choose from, and not only that but the combinations you can make are never-ending. My favourites are raspberry, chocolate orange, white chocolate and vanilla. You then place your choice of wax melt on the top of the burner, above a candle and let the relaxing start. The scents are yummy and really strong, and last for about 20 hours per melt. Pretty good going!

The website has so many choices of scents, but if you can find an outlet that’s even better because you can only pack four different scents in your box online but in a shop it’s like a pick-and-mix. You also get a little ‘recipe’ card, to help get the best scent combinations.

The burners are £8.99 and available here, and the melts are £6.99 per box available here, I think these make a really lovely gift – or you can just treat yourself!

Our Favourite June Instagram Moments

A & C: June is nearly over which means we are closer to getting out the jumpers and wooly hats ( we know we shouldn’t be wishing away the summer but jumpers and wooly hats are exciting!). We thought we would put together a collage of our favourite June moments, just for you all to enjoy!

Quite a few exciting things happened this month, we went to a Summer Ball so we had exciting outfits and make up to plan. We also had our Birchbox deliveries, which is always something to look forward to!
We both had a couple of cute ootd’s, and wishlists for the summer – which featured topshop, a standard in a wishlist for us! Our lipstick collections were assessed – and we both decided we obviously need to buy more. Chloe discovered a new brand, mother number 2 got her a Kiko cosmetics lipstick and nail varnish from Italy, click here to find out more!
Last but not least, the Cosmo Blog Awards competition closed this month and we appreciate every single one of your votes – it means so much to us and we love to hear your feedback!

Chloe’s June Birchbox

C: I was super excited to receive my Birchbox yesterday – and the postman came early so I got a little sneak peak before work! So here is what I got and my first impressions, I will be doing reviews on singular products after I have had a chance to test them properly.

So firstly the theme was “Global Strikers” and included beauty products from around the world to celebrate the World Cup. Personally I am not keen on football unless a pub/lots of cider is involved but I thought it was a good theme none the less, as I know there are a lot of football fans out there. We also received a mini flipflop keyring as a lifestyle extra. It was a nice touch but once again not my sort of thing.

So on to the products. The first thing I looked at properly was the Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick. There is nothing better than lipsticks in a beauty box and I was not disappointed by this. The shade I got (I can’t find a name anywhere!) is beautiful and although “sheer” it is moisturising and build able. It also smells amazing…. like I want to eat the whole tube.

I then went straight to the Opi nail varnish – another favourite thing to get in my Birchbox. You can never go wrong with nail varnish or Opi. Once again I cannot find a shade name but this is a beautiful purple/grey shimmery/glittery shade. Excellent description there. Annie wasn’t sure on this straight away but I really like it and can’t wait to try it out properly.

I also received this generous sample of Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask. I love being able to try new hair masks/products as often they are very expensive and you never know if they are going to work for you. Plus once again, this sample smells amazing.

We then have Naobay’s Body Radiance Lotion. I really loved Naobay’s milk cleanser so I am looking forward to trying some of their other products, this is also a good sized sample which means you can get a good feel for the product and see how it works for you.

Lastly we have the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre – posh name for a face moisturiser. I don’t use any facial moisturisers except for my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel so it will be interesting to try something new. I would never invest in a different moisturiser as I know  that the Clinique product works for me, so this is the perfect way for me to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new. I will report back!

So overall a great box from Birchbox and probably the only aspect of the World Cup that I will really enjoy! It contained a great mix of skincare and make up and a good variety of new and old favourite brands. In my opinion Birchbox have really stepped up their game this month! #twolittleowlsblog
