August + September Beauty Favourites

Monday, September 10, 2018
I have been lucky enough to receive so many wonderful products over the past couple of months and almost all of them have made my monthly favourites posts. Thanks so much to the following brands: Tangle Angel, Bomb Cosmetics, Freshly and Masque Bar.

Bodhi and Birch Botanic Dew Hand and Body Wash (£16, 200ml)
Let's start with one of my favourite luxury body care brands, Bodhi and Birch. They have a wide range of gorgeous and very luxurious body care products as well as gift sets. The Bodhi and Birch products that I've used and loved the most is the Botanic Dew body wash which has become a staple in my shower! The scent is heavenly as all Bodhi and Birch products are and I cannot recommend it enough!
*Freshly Detox Firming Body Cream (£23, 250ml)
Another body product that I've been obsessed with recently is from a brand that is new to me, Freshly. Firstly, I love the packaging, how effective the products are and the lovely ingredients such as caffeine, ginger, cucumber, witch hazel and more. Body creams are something I haven't really used for a couple of months because of the hot weather but now that the weather is finally becoming a little chilly (thankfully), I've been reaching for them much more for an added boost of moisture.

The cream has a light fresh and fruity scent that is fairly subtle, thankfully as I'm not a huge fan of overpoweringly stone scents in bodycare or skincare products. It has such a lovely, rich and nourishing texture but it isn't heavy, greasy or slow to absorb. For me, it's the perfect body cream with the added benefits of being firming.

*Freshly Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum (£31, 40ml)
Next up from Freshly is a gorgeous serum with equally lovely natural ingredients including vitamin c, vegan hyaluronic acid, cucumber, rose, jojoba oil and more. Both products are also cruelty free and suitable for vegans - if you're looking for skincare or bodycare as gifts this Christmas then look no further than Freshly as it ticks all of the boxes.

The serum comes with a pipette dispenser which I love as it means that I only use the amount I need to each time. I also like that it is orange in colour which makes it a little more unusual! As with the body cream, this serum has a rich, nourishing texture which glides onto the skin leaving it very moisturised, velvety smooth and silky soft!
Organii Lavender Liquid Soap 
I've reviewed both of these next two products on my blog already and I've already raved about them but they are products that I use every single day without fail - I'm so impressed with them and I needed to rave about them again. The lavender liquid soap is not only a gentle but effective hand wash but the scent is so beautiful and lingers for a little while too. I have eczema on my hands and this hand wash doesn't irritate it so if you are looking for a gentle and gorgeously scened hand wash then look no further.

Blanx Pro Whitening Pure White Toothpaste 
I've been using this range for months now and unlike all of the other whitening toothpastes I've tried, these actually work and they don't have an awful aftertaste, they aren't too strong and they don't have a strange consistency/texture which is something I have found with other whitening toothpastes I've tried in the past. My favourite of the three has to be the pure white flavour and I will definitely be buying another tube when it runs out!
*Tangle Angel Pro (£19.50)
Since having ten inches cut off my hair last month for The Little Princess Trust, a UK charity that makes real hair wigs for children and young people with cancer for free, I have been a little obsessed with haircare products and trying new styles. One of my favourite haircare products is the very pretty Tangle Angel in the very blogger appropriate rose gold shade! The brush is perfect for my thick, mid-length hair and I think it would have been even more effective on my waist length hair before it was cut and donated.
*Tangle Angel Compact (£19.50)
I was also very kindly sent the equally as gorgeous compact version which features the same unique design and rose gold shade but it is small and it splits in half so it doubles as a hair brush and mirror. The mirror and brush are of a decent size so they'd be ideal for travelling or keeping in your handbag. Tangle Angel brushes aren't just great hair brushes but they are also suitable for use with extensions, heat, childrens hair and wet hair! They are the ultimate hair brushes and I cannot recommend them enough (they'd make great stocking fillers).
*Masque Bar Pig Hydrating Mask (£3.99)
Last but not least is perhaps one of the creepiest products I've used in a while as it's a hydrating sheet mask (that sounds normal, right?) that has a pig face printed onto it...It looks quite cute and unusual in the packet but on the skin, now that's a different story. Despite halloween coming a little early, it is actually the nicest sheet mask I've used. I'm not the biggest face of sheet masks, I'd rather use a creamy or clay based mask but this one really hydrates my skin, it's easy to use, mess free and I think it would make a great girly pamper night product (or as a funny but practical stocking filler this christmas). They have range of Pretty Animalz masks in various designs such as a fox, frog, panda, unicorn and more to choose from so why not give it a go!

Have you tried any of these products? What products have you been loving recently?
