Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains - £7.99 - read my full review with swatches here
As these vibrant tubes of vivid colour that feel beautifully balmy have been sitting on my desk for the past few weeks just staring at me, I haven't been able to help myself from applying a slick of colour every so often despite doing nothing but working at my laptop. They've got a hold over me. 'Barcelona Nights' is a bright, berry pink that's beyond gorgeous whilst 'Cannes Crush' is like no coral I've seen - tinged with pink and almost neon, but soft at the same time - safe to say, they've both been getting a lot of love!
SEVENTEEN Doll'd Up Mascara - £6.29
I picked this up on a whim in Boots as it came with a free eyeliner - one of those 'dotting' contraptions that I still haven't got the hang of - and I've been really enjoying it ever since. Promising 'doll-like lashes', the curved plastic brush grabs every lash and it's almost impossible to clump which I adore as I can get a little heavy-handed when it comes to mascara. The result in a word is 'pretty' - fanned out, lengthened and all fluttery. Now that my tube is drying up I've found that it's incredible for the lower lashes - mine are super long and so I haven't worn mascara on them for years, but this creates such a nice, subtle effect and gives just enough definition. Another bonus? The affordable price tag. Ker-ching.
Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish in 'Ethereal' - £3.69 - read my post here
I confessed my love for this little beauty in its own post earlier this week, and I had to include it in my monthly favourites as it has been seriously pretty-ing up my hands and life. A simple, ballerina pink with a shell-like lilac and silver sheen running through it - love.

Baylis & Harding Jojoba, Silk & Almond Moisturising Shower Crème - £8
When I was in my first year of university, I used to 'splurge' on Baylis & Harding soap as they totally look more expensive than they are, am I right? My favourite was the Wild Rose & Raspberry Cleansing Hand Wash and for £6, I could have a bit of luxury every day in my en suite bathroom in my university halls for a fraction of the price of what I wanted to buy, which was Jo Malone. It's the little things. This body wash has been taking me back to those Freshers days and leaving me smelling like a bouquet of flowers whilst it's at it.
Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Lotion - £3.99 (currently on sale here for £2.66)
Body lotion is a product I'm a bit of a floozy about as my loyalties don't lie with a specific brand and there's no one product springing to mind that I've repurchased time and time again - but this might change that. Leaving the 'Coconut & Jasmine' and 'Pistachio' scents on the shelf, I added 'Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla' to my basket and to my surprise - it's really, really good and it really, really works! Usually I'm not too impressed by drugstore moisturisers but this one genuinely makes my skin feel softer for days on end, sinks in quickly and the scent is just heavenly. Dove have also introduced body washes to the Purely Pampering range, but what I've got my eyes on are the body oils. Come to mama.
Indeed Labs hydraluron moisture jelly - £24.99 (currently on sale for £16.66 here)
The weather in the UK recently has been absolutely scorchio and I have floor to ceiling windows in my bedroom - it's like a greenhouse, let me tell you. After cleansing and toning at night is the only thirty seconds of relief I get from 'perpetual hot face', and applying a moisturiser has been the last thing I've wanted to do. Enter this little gem with its beautiful gel-like formula! It feels cooling upon application and sinks in immediately, instantly hydrating and plumping my skin without feeling tacky and gross. Thank you, Indeed Labs!
