Another month down and a wave goodbye to summer. Here are the products that I have really been enjoying using in the month of August.
I wont speak too much on this gem, as I did fully review it here, the Magnitone lucid is an electric facial brush and is just amazing it has totally transformed my skin, by improving skin-tone and helping keep break outs at bay.
This just had to be included in my monthly favourites!.
Neal's Yard Remedies - White Tea Facial Mist
This is literally like a breath of fresh air! I have been using this morning and night after cleansing in place for my usual toner - I even use it to just refresh my skin when it feels like it needs a little perk up over makeup.
When you spritz this on its goes on as a fine lovely mist that wont leave your face drenched - its just perfectly cooling and refreshing. The scent is just amazing and super calming , I now feel like I need to own more products with this essential oils fragrance to it - so I may be popping on to Neal's Yard website soon to see what else they have to offer.
The White Tea Facial mist is said to calm and re-hydrate all skin types - and that it really does. I'm half way through this and I will most certainly re-purchasing this without a doubt, just look at their packaging too.. its beautiful.
The Bathory - Soothe Bath Soak
I shall be doing a full review of this product soon but this made its way into my favourites easily. This brand has such a brilliant concept to it, you need to check out their site for yourself but in a nut shell you can create your own bath experience by choosing one of three options - Detox, Soothe and Bask then you pick 3 essential oils to go inside from a choice of 10. Its just so much fun and would make a great gift as its packaged beautifully. As you can probably tell from the Neal's Yard above, I seem to have really gotten into my aromatherapy/ essential oil scents..i just find it so relaxing and comforting.
I chose Soothe from their selection which is packed with hydrating Oatmeal, Honey and Buttermilk - how amazing does that sound!? The three essential oils I chose where Bergamot, Camomile and Lavender.
It smells amazing and is just the ticket before bed with a nice candle and face mask for a good nights sleep.
My skin feels upper soft once I get out too. I am planning to make another one, but mainly for my other half because he has a stinker of a cold at the moment bless him, so I thought it would be nice to make him one that would help his muscles with some eucalyptus essential oil in there.
P.S even their site has a relaxing ambience about it!
Charlotte Tilbury - Dolce Vita Palette & Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet
I have been lusting over Charlotte Tilbury's products for ages now until two naughty bloggers Sarah and Aimee gave me the nudge I needed to go ahead and make the purchase.. and boy I'm so glad I did!- although it seems to have sparked a little obsession now.....oh dear!.
The Dolce Vita palette is just absolutely stunning and screams luxury, this deserves a post of its own so I can show you all the true beauty - it consists of 4 shades, to prime, enhance, smoke and pop. The shades have a burnished hue to them but are so wearable and very warm toned. I have been using this loads and I can see it being perfect for A/W being pared with either a vampy or nude lip.
The colour chameleon in bronzed garnet is a colour morphing eye shadow pencil (for green eyes- mine are hazel and it works just fine). Its a beautiful red toned coppery brown with slight gold sparkle to it, this pencil glides on like butter its so easy to use and blend. I have been reaching this on those days where I want some quickness in the mornings but still want to look done.

The Body Shop - Wild Argan Oil, The Radiant Oil for Body and Hair
This seems to be everywhere right now doesn't it? and I'm seeing Argan oil popped in almost everything these days, not just your typical hair oils.
I have always been a fan of The Body Shop.. and Argan oil for that matter, so it made sense to give it a go really didn't it? - This non sticky and quickly absorbing oil spray can be used for both hair and body. I only use it on my body simply because I have so many hair oils I don't need to use another.
It gives my skin such a healthy sheen and smells delish, slightly musky/nutty and feminine at the same time (I'm really pants at describing scents haha). I also love how its a spray bottle so you don't get in such a mess with it, I also bought the lotion and that just as good.
Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving in August? I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading,
Love Zoe x
