I’m pretty sure I say this every month but I can’t believe we’re nearly in the next one! That said, I’m really looking forward to September as Spring begins in Australia. This month, I’ve really been focusing on looking after my health and well-being so wanted to share my August favourites with you to see if you might like them too!
My favourite things for this month have all been about ‘treating’ myself and my family including some lovely organic, chemical products. I’m striving to reduce the amount of chemicals we consume and use in the home, be more eco-friendly and sustainable.
You can read below to find out what my August Favourites are or watch this video (and I promise I didn’t put my finger in a plug socket, I was just experimenting with blow-drying!):
1. Comfort Zone Sacred Nature Light Hydrating Fluid
This moisturiser is a lovely, light weight one that glides on to my skin and sinks in almost immediately.
I have combination skin but this has been lovely to balance it, with no excess oil at all. It’s a great base for before foundation too. You can purchase it here.
2. Comfort Zone Sacred Nature Eye Cream Gel
I wish I’d started using eye cream more consistently from a much earlier age but one thing that put me off was how greasy they are. This one isn’t greasy at all and love the moisturiser, sinks in so quickly which means no waiting time until I can apply my make up. I love it! You can purchase it here.
This is expensive but I think really helped my eyelashes and eyebrows to grow back quickly and thicker after they all fell out during chemotherapy. I think it’s a great product to use in the weeks up to a special occasion when you want longer and thicker lashes – just be warned that when you stop using it, your lashes might return to normal. You can purchase it here.
4. Le bébé Coo
These gorgeous, gorgeous products are for my babies but I must admit to using them too as they’re so gentle and glamorous. Fancy babies! I’m running a giveaway for some lovely products from the Le bébé Coo range here.
5. Lhami Skincare
My husband has been loving his new Lhami products and I’ve been stealing the Pink Grapefruit and Geranium Foaming Cleanser for myself too! You can win a lovely set from Lhami in this giveaway and purchase from their range here.
6. Derma E Purifying 2 in 1 Charcoal Mask
This came in my BellaBaby box in July and it’s so lovely. I use it as a face mask and then after it’s dried, you add water and to wash it off and it exfoliates your skin at the same time. It’s very gentle but leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. You can purchase it here.
7. Rimmel Brow this Way Highlighting Pencil
This pencil is for highlighting under your brows but I’ve actually been using it on the inner corner of my eyes and I think it’s helped me to look more awake – at least I feel it does! It has a lovely subtle shimmer to it too. You can purchase it here.
8. Loving Earth Chocolate
And finally…..chocolate! Which I think is pretty essential when you’re pampering yourself! I’ve been totally loving the yummy range of organic, raw Loving Earth chocolate from Aussie Health Products – you can read my full review here. My favourites are Salted Caramel and the Choc Covered Cranberries – oh so delicious!
So there are my August Favourites!
Can you recommend any products I should try that are free from nasties?
