August Favourites

My first favourites list (yay!), and surprisingly, despite all the make up I've been buying for the last few months, it's practically all skincare. Anyway, let's get to it:

  1. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF15
Thanks to this stuff, my lips survived through winter, and I have to say, they have never felt better. They flake less, and always feel soft and supple now. It has a very refreshing scent as well, like lime and sugar, and literally melts onto your lips. I never thought I would be one to pay $30 for a lip balm but I am sold; even if the packaging is worth 90% of the price, I'll be back for more regardless.

  1. Batiste Dry Shampoo
I've never been very excited about dry shampoos...until Batiste came a long. Unlike some other dry shampoos on the market, this one is incredibly easy to use, just spray and brush. I have insanely dry, frizzy hair but because my hair is quite fine the roots are always oily by day two. This product has really saved me the trouble of washing my hair everyday, and has made my second day hair a lot more manageable. 

  1. My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Masks
I love this mask, and no words can express how upset I was when I ran out of these babies. The purpose of these Apple Polyphenol masks is oil control and pore constringing, but I've found it's really helped clear up and prevent acne. It's also incredibly moisturising and smooths and firms the skin. It's designed for normal skin but I highly recommend this to anyone with large pores and acne. Also, My Beauty Diary masks are really good value for money. I don't know about the rest of the world but in Australia I pay about $12 for a 3sheet pack, My Beauty Diary on the other hand it's $13 for 10 sheets. I know, ridiculous right?

  1. Alpha-H Liquid Gold
I've been using this product for about two months now and it's now become a staple in my skincare routine. The results it gave my acne prone skin were amazing. The morning after I first tried this product I was stunned at how different my skin looked. Not only does it help to clarify your skin, fight and prevent acne it gives you brighter (almost glowing), happy, healthy looking skin. I think it's safe to say that I'll definitely be repurchasing this product in the future.

  1. Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Facial oils are incredibly misunderstood. For my entire life I've learned to stay away from skincare with certain ingredients in them, especially oil, so it took me a while to build up the courage and buy this product. This rosehip oil focuses on treating multiple skin problems including acne, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks; and in general nourishes the skin. After just one week I noticed that my acne had greatly reduced (and was staying away!) my scars had faded and in general my skin looked healthy and happy. As someone with combination/oily skin I only apply this at night time, but it can also be used as a daily moisturiser for those with dry skin. For an all-in-one facial treatment/serum it's very affordable. I only paid $22 AUD for 20ml. At this point, feels like I'm sold for life.
