July favourite's

So, July is over already! I really thought summer (it's not really what I call summer!) would go slowly because I am waiting for exam results, but no! Time is really flying. I have been buying various random products this month, and here are my favourites.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (£8.99): I actually ran out of the foundation I had been using (can't even remember which), so decided to give this a whirl. I got this in ivory and I actually really like it! It sits nicely on my skin - not too dry, not too greasy, and does make me look more awake - which is a bonus! It does have very small bits of glitter in it (which I'm not too keen on) but when it's on your face, I can't tell. I may even stick to this foundation!

Maybelline Volum' Express the Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara (£7.99): Again, my other mascara was rapidly running out, and this was £5 in Asda, so I bought it. I must admit, I only bought it because it was on offer and has leopard print packaging - which wins me over immediately! I do, however, like the product. It is a smallish wand, making it easy to reach every lash. I think it is better at lengthening lashes, rather than volumising. But, overall it's a nice change!
Boots Botanics Organic Softening Cleanser (£4.99): Boot's have recently changed the packaging of this range and relaunched it, so I thought I'd give this organic cleanser a go! I love that it's organic because (and it may just be a placebo) I feel my skin is fresher and cleaner, as there are more natural ingredients used. I can't describe the smell, but I think it's a little bit like marmite - you either love it or hate it. I think I vary on a day to day basis, but this makes me use it more!

Body shop Cranberry Joy Hand Cream: I don't know how much is/was because I only paid £1 in a sale they were having - I think it may be discontinued now. Nevertheless, I absolutely LOVE this. The smell is absolutely divine, which is no surprise really as all body shop products smell beautiful. It has made my hands feel much softer - I just LOVE it!

Eau Provocateur (£39): I received a sample of all 3 fragrances by Agent Provocateur, with a nail varnish ordered from Debenhams. I am useless at describing smells, so I won't but I do love all of these. I'd say they're quite classy fragrances but with added sexiness - which would make total sense really! I didn't think anything would pull me away from my beloved Marc Jacobs, but these come a close second ;)

Have you tried any of these? What are you currently loving?
