August Favourites!

I have been doing quite a lot of shopping lately meaning that this month I have quite a lot of new favourites. I'm not going to ramble too much about each product otherwise this post will be really long!

Let's start with skincare! 

My first favourite is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir which I have reviewed here. This is a refreshing facial mist that has lots of benefits for the skin. It smells absolutely amazing and just makes my skin look and feel very refreshed, smooth and glowing.

Alpha H liquid gold has been my saviour product and I have a review here. This is the main product that has really really helped my skin. If I have a blemish, I know that within one use of this the blemish will be smaller and then one or two more and it will be gone! My skin is now looking a lot clearer, even and healthy.

Alpha H has helped my skin look a lot clearer which has meant I don't feel the need for high coverage foundation. So I went to Harvey Nichols and bought myself the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser! I am going to be posting a full review of this soon. I love this tinted moisturiser - it looks very natural and my skin looks healthy and radiant.

My newest purchase is a Mac blush in Melba. This is a gorgeous matte coral peach. I have never used a blusher than compliments my skin tone as much as this one! It makes me look slightly tanned whilst also adding a lovely wash of peach to my cheeks.

If you read my blog a lot, it may not be too much of a surprise that I love Essie nail polishes. I am thinking of doing a Essie nail polish collection post soon so please let me know in the comments if you would like that! I received Mint Candy Apple as a birthday gift and I love it! All the Essie nail polishes I own in general are a favourite of mine though!

Lastly is a fragrance and it is Vivienne Westwood Naughty Alice. This is the best smelling perfume I have ever owned! I had this last Christmas as a gift and as soon as I ran out a couple of months I bought another one. Ylang ylang is the heart note (I had to Google this - it's a plant!), black rose is the top note and carnal violet is the base note. This perfume smells absolutely incredible. It lasts all day on me as well which is a bonus. It smells pretty much just as strong at the end of the day as it does at the start!

Those are all of my favourites for August! Have you tried any of these products? I would love to know your opinions on them! Also let me know if you would like an Essie collection post!
