Hola chicos, it is already September so it is now the time to do My August Favourites! If you haven’t read my July Favourites check the link here
For this month I have chosen four products related to me (a shower gel, a mascara, make up brushes, and backpack) as well as a product related to my girls (a steamer together with a decongestant oil). I hope you like them!
I have been using this shower gel non-stop for a long time now. It is a real favourite for me as I have already bought new bottles 3 or 4 times over the last year. It has a beautiful smell and the texture of it is so creamy. It feels really nice when you apply it to your body. I feel like my skin feels better after using it. It also seems to last a lot too! The good thing about this product is that they also have travel sizes so when you are away on your holidays you can take a small bottle and it will last you for the whole duration of your holidays (unless you are going for more than a month, although I guess in that case you could just take two! LOL). You can find this brand on most high streets in Boots. You can also buy it from Amazon if you are an online shopper like me LOL 😉
I love Lancome products. I have been using this brand for a long time since I was 16 years old because my sister used to bring us all the latest products of this brand back to Peru when she was living in the US. As soon as I found out about this mascara I just knew that I should get it. The shape of this mascara is great -- I have never seen something so cool before. You can apply it to your upper eyelashes and also to your bottom eyelashes. It really looks good! It makes your eyelashes look very long and it also lasts a long time too. Every time I use it I feel like my eyes look much bigger. I really recommend it to you. You should try it -- you won’t be disappointed.
I love these Real Technique brushes which are made by the two famous bloggers and make up artists Sam and Nicki Chapman. They have created these amazing make up brushes and the interesting thing about them is that they are duo-fiber which means that the bristles are incredibly soft to touch and feel amazing against your face. The set comes with 3 different brush types as shown in the photo above. The big size is a Face Brush which you can use to apply powder to your face for example. This is for lightweight application. Then we have the medium size brush which is a contour brush for controlled contouring and sculpting. Finally, the small brush is an eye brush to use for finishing touches to the eyes. I use it to blend my eye shadows at the end and it is amazing. They are also very light and easy to use. They can be a true multitasker because the duo-fiber bristles work with cream, liquid or powder. I really love these brushes and if you are looking for new make up brushes I recommend you to try this set. You will really like them.
This is my BIG favourite for this month. I have always wanted to have a backpack because I knew it would be really handy to have my hands free especially now that I have two girls to be dealing with all the time. I used to wear a Burberry Messenger but sometimes I thought that having a backpack where I can put more things and have my hands free would be much more practical for me. I love Longchamp -- I think I have 10,000 different sizes of Longchamp bags LOL, although I have never owned a Longchamp Backpack before. As such, I decided to order one this month and since it arrived I have been loving it! It is so useful really and as I have already said, I have my hands free to deal with my girls and it is very spacious so I can put a fair amount of things in it. If I had to add something to this bag I would probably say that it could be nice to have a small pocket outside just for my keys and mobile but apart from that I’m so happy with it. I was worried at the beginning that I was going to look like I was going back to school or something but to be honest with you it actually looks and feels super cool! If you are like me needing your hands free (like a typical multitasking parent) and love backpacks I recommend you to try it as it is really practical especially when you have kids.
This will be a combined favourite as both items go together. This is also the favourite related to my little girls. This steamer is incredibly good. Using it with the Olbas decongestant oil works wonders for my girls. My eldest daughter, Bella suffers a lot. It is possible that she has asthma (we are waiting for definite diagnose) so when she gets a cold it triggers her asthma a lot, often resulting in breathing problems. We have ended up in an A&E a couple of times already, so now as soon as I see that she is getting a cold and starts coughing (we start a strict regime with her inhalers as this point too) I try to use this steamer to help her breathing during the night. It works even better if I start using it before she is at the worst stage. It helps her to open her lungs so that she can breath much more easily. The same thing is now happening with my 1 year old. I hope she is not having what Bella has but unfortunately it looks like this could be the case. Now I have them both using the steamer during the nights when they are not well and this normally happens at the same time as they always get each others illnesses. As they sleep together in the same toom this works perfect for both. The steamer is very easy to use -- you just fill it with water and then put about 5 drops of the oil. Then I put the lid back ob and plug it in. It starts working straight away, I will usually have it on about 10 minutes before I put the girls in their bedroom so it is just right for them to start feeling the steam. If you have kids like me that suffer a lot with colds, asthma, allergies, etc I would recommend you to try this steamer and oil.
