Top 3 Products for August

It's the end of the month again! We haven't had much of a summer but I am so excited for Autumn. It is my favourite season, I love it when the leaves start turning and the berry colours which all start popping up around this time of year.

Anyway, back to my top products for August. I have had a fairly quiet month, been really busy at work but I have still had time to find some products I love.

Mark Hill MiracOILicious Moroccan Argan Oil

My hair has been feeling a bit dried out this month, I have been going to the gym a bit more and the humidity combined with this seems to have an adverse reaction on my hair! I picked this up on a whim as it was on offer in Boots (you know how much I love an offer!) I use it after I have washed my hair before drying and styling and it feels amazing! I only use one pump to make sure I don't overload, but a little goes a long long way. It makes my hair feel soft, silky and manageable, which has been brilliant after the gym, especially with the increase washing of hair washing that this incurs! I have used Moroccan Oil before and I think this is a great alternative at a fraction of the price, a great drug store find in my eyes and one I intend to keep using.

Origins Clear Improvements - Active charcoal mask

I think the gym and humidity has had the same effect on my skin as it has on my hair, as it's felt a bit dull and dry. I love the Origins overnight moisture mask, but felt I needed a bit extra now and again, so thought I'd try another of their products in the hope it would have the same effect, and it did! I've been using this once or twice a week dependant on how my skins feeling (and how much time I have) and it really has made a big difference. I have had less break outs and my skin has been looking glowy and fresh. It is a bit messy to use as it is very thick and obviously black in colour, so make sure you don't use it near anything white (a mistake I made initially, but it does wash out easily), it dries relatively quickly and washes off easily. I am really impressed with this product, another 5 star from Origins and I will definitely be on the look out for more Origins products to try as we go into Autumn and Winter to keep my skin in great condition.

Seventeen Falsiefeye HD Mascara

I saw a review on this ages ago by Wayne Goss (Goss Makeup Artist on YouTube) but never got round to trying it out. He raved about how amazing it was for a drug store mascara at lengthening lashes and giving great volume. I wanted to try a new mascara as I often like to switch about, as I think I have a bit of a mascara addiction. I was browsing in Boots where they had an offer on Seventeen products, so thought I would give it a go. It is AMAZING! Not only does it give great length but it lasts all day at work without flaking. I am obsessed with it (and even went and bought it in brown as well). If you are after an affordable drug store mascara that it brilliant, I recommend giving this a try! A five star product at an affordable price, thanks Wayne!

That's it for another month of top products! Looking forward to Autumn and seeing what September has to bring.
