June 2012 Raves

I apologize for being slightly MIA recently. My life has been a little crazy! In the last two weeks I have started a new job and moved to a new house! Needless to say I have been a little overwhelmed but I am really happy with everything and am looking forward to writing some great posts! Here is a quick monthly rave on some products that I have been absolutely loving in the month of June. I have actually been lucky this month, I couldn't think of one product I didn't like, so this will just be a few products I love. 





The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost - I recently ran out of Tea Tree Serum from the Body Shop, and since they had a buy 2 get 2 free deal, I treated myself to a few more products. I rediscovered my love for this serum; fantastic consistency and it makes my skin glow in the morning. If you haven't tried this product, I would totally recommend it!

Redken Hair Cleansing Cream - Every Sunday I like to give my hair a deep cleanse and use a deep conditioning mask to prep my hair for the week. I haven't found a shampoo
that really makes my hair feel free of product build-up till I tried this. The smell is amazing and after I leave it on for a few minutes my hair and scalp feel incredibly clean.. but not dried out!

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine - I own a few of these and love them all, but I find I reach for this one the most. It gives a sheer wash of light pink colour and the consistency is fantastic. 10 out of 10 for sure.

Eco Tools Bronzer Brush - I purchased this brush a few months ago, and am in love with it! It is the softest brush I have ever owned.  It is specified for applying bronzer, but it is really my multi-purpose brush! I use it for powder, bronzer, and blush and it works great for all of them. And at only $10? You can't go wrong!

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Duo in Pinch Me Pink - This was another product in the buy 2 get 2 free shopping trip. This is from their new makeup line that has Lily Cole as the spokesperson. I loved the colour of this and it is a great cream blush. Not thrilled with it on the lips (it barely shows on my lips) but on the cheeks it is beautiful and natural! It is normally $10 but I received it for free :)


I would love to hear what products you are loving right now :)

  1. The entire Lily Cole collection is so darn cute! I have never been a body shop girl (partially because I'm always at BBW) but I really want to grab some of their body butters:)

  12. The Korres lip butters are one of my favourite lip products - I have Pomegranate and Jasmine in my handbag at all times. I can see why you'd like Jasmine, I think it'd be especially pretty on fair-skinned ladies (on my lips it looks a bit too light at times). The Ecotools bronzing brush sounds so soft, dense and luxurious on the face :) It's great that it's multipurpose too!
