Top 3 Products in July

Another month over, where is the summer going? It's been another relatively quiet month in the Reilly house, but I have still managed to do a little shopping and tried a few new products this month.

So here's my top 3 products in July.

John Frieda continuous control firm hold hairspray


I am a big fan of John Frieda products, they just seem to work well with my hair type. I often use the Frizz Ease shampoo and conditioner, but up until now haven't tried any of their styling products. I was close to running out of my usual Elnett hairspray at the end of last month and picked this up on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots. I don't use a lot of styling products daily as I work in a hospital so my hair needs to be off my collar and out of my face, but I do like to ensure it's sleek and stays in place all day. And this hairspray was just the ticket! It has a lovely smell that isn't too over powering like some hairsprays, and gives brilliant hold without leaving my hair feeling stiff and dry. It also worked brilliantly when my hair was down, keeping my style in place but still being able to run my fingers through it easily, it was almost invisible. I will defiantly be repurchasing this product again as I have nearly used the whole can (oops!). A thumbs up from me if your wanting to try a great hold hairspray.


Soap & Glory 'Foam Call' shower and bath body wash


This was actually a repurchase but I haven't used it in a while and i had forgotten quite how much I love it! It not only smells incredible (like Coco Mademoiselle) but foams up brilliantly and leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean, plus the smell lingers for a while afterwards. I have been using it with the Righteous Butter afterwards to moisturise and together the two make an awesome combination. I haven't felt or smelt this good in ages! Plus right now there is an offer at Boots, spend over £10 on Soap & Glory and receive a free Righteous Butter, win win!!

Nars Cream Blush in Cactus Flower



This is not a new purchase, more of a re-discovery. I have had it in the recesses of my make-up collection for about a year, but had forgotten all about it (something I tend to do when I try lots of new products!) but I was having a sort through my make-up and found it tucked away. I thought with it being summer I'd get it and out and give it another whirl. I had forgotten how lovely it is. It is a bright coral colour with a small amount of gold shimmer, perfect for summer and with it being a cream blush blends easily and lasts all day. It is not too shimmery so doesn't look over the top for daytime. It's now a staple in my everyday summer make-up. It has made me remember how much I love Nars products and how great they are in quality and usability. I may have to have a cheeky browse through the Nars website this month, my bank balance is not going to be happy!

Thats it for another month, looking forward to trying some more products this month and maybe having another look through my make-up for another lost treasure.
