5 Beauty Favourites: June 2020

Here are the June favourites, which means that I’m finally getting there with my admin catch-up! I’m going to keep this blurb short and sweet because quite a lot of the video is taken up by a review of some “period pants” and I’m doing a whole other post on those delightful things. And I don’t want to repeat myself. (I’m trying to be very efficient with my time this week because things have been so hectic. The only saving grace is that the weather hasn’t been that brilliant, because there’s nothing I hate more than being trapped inside with my laptop when the sun is shining.)

(Yes I know about those weird box things that you can put your laptop into to shade the screen from the sun, but honestly that would be one step away from wearing knee-pads to do the weeding. I’m just not ready to be that practical.)

So June Favourites; an amazingly light-but-effective neck cream, a powerful eye cream, a hydrating foundation (spoiler alert: you already know about that one, I’m all out of sync here) and some lightly-tinted lip balms that are great for low-low-key makeup days.

Enjoy – I’ll be back with the period pants. Even though the phrase period pants does make me want to be slightly sick in my mouth…

    Love the beauty picks and also you’ve just reminded me to buy one of those silly laptop shade things (I live in Spain and it’s so bright I basically can’t type for about 7 months of the year). Not sure I’m ready for those weeding knee pad things either yet though…!

    You’ve been rocking that foundation lately! These are great products for a subtle, yet glowing, summer face. Good luck with the period pants!

    I know what you mean by the name, but period pants have been amazing for me since I got over it and tried them – although I admit I never tested different ones, I just bought one brand and stuck to them.
