July favourites

Monthly, Favourites, Garnier, Perricone MD, Sonic, New Look, Fashion, Beauty
I’m not going to lie, I’ve really struggled with this post. A lot of my favourites I’ve recently posted about and nothing else really jumped out. Yes, I realise it’s the 9th and we’re nearly a third into the way of August.

I’ve seen and heard so many bloggers raving about the Sonic Chic electric toothbrush (£9.99 | Look Fantastic) and of course, I had to jump on the bandwagon. First up, I love the gorgeous designs and there are several to choose from – would be wrong to own more than one? Due to their size and weight, they are great to have on-the-go, whether you’re overnighting or going away for a weekend or extended holiday. I do take mine everywhere. Plus, being electric, they give your teeth a really thorough clean and I’ve noticed the difference since using mine – as opposed to a regular toothbrush. It comes with a replaceable head and runs on one AAA battery. It’s easy to clean, use and maintain and I thoroughly recommend the product. Oh, and for those interested, mine is Starlight.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned the No Foundation Foundation Serum by Perricone MD (£45 | Look Fantastic) on the blog before, but I feel the need to share it again because it’s a bloody god-send. It’s one of the few products I’ve used religiously over the last couple of months and is set to be one I use throughout August too. Its light, silky formula makes it a great alternative to heavy foundations, or even tinted moisturisers.  It provides even coverage and only a few drops are required – the pipette-style applicator is perfect for ensuring minimal waste. I’m not a fan of traditional pumps, as there’s always a lot of product left in the bottles, but I feel this would be really cost effective. It also contains an SPF which is great for the summer months. I want to try the bronzer and blush as well – has anyone tried either out?

Dressing for work in the summer is always difficult, the office is often cold even when it’s warm outside and I seem to wear tights on the hot days and then sandals when it’s raining. One item of clothing I am currently obsessed with is my coral blazer (New Look | Similar available from Pink Boutique), which adds a pop of colour and puts me in the summer mood. I normally wear it with my white tennis-style dress from H&M, or alternatively the white dress in this post. It keeps me cool, the material is light and it’s just the ultimate summer accessory.

I was sent the Garnier Oil-infused Micellar Cleansing Water (£3.99 | Boots) for review and was so impressed. I am such a fan of the original Micellar Cleansing Water, but this is genuinely loads better. It’s non-greasy, even though it contains oil and it removes the most stubborn of heavy eye makeup, including waterproof mascara. I’ve got the 400ml bottle, which will last absolutely ages, as you only need a couple of drops per cotton pad. I was planning on writing a review post on this product, so let me know if you’d still like to see this. Or alternatively, read my Boots review online.

What were your July favourites?
