I have recently found myself running out of some of my favourite beauty items.  So, on my recent trip to Edinburgh I decided to pop into Boots to stock up.  I also decided to check out the MAC store at Gatwick Airport where I finally bought something that had been on my wishlist for a while.

 1. Soap and Glory Rich and Foamous Body Wash

My first stop was the Soap and Glory aisle, where I decided to pick up two body wash products.  Both these products are repurchases - I love using Sugar Crush in the summer months as it has got such a fresh scent, and Rich and Foamous is great for bedtime showers as the scent is so delicious and soothing.

As Soap and Glory products were on 3 for 2 at Boots I decided to also repurchase one of my all-time favourite body scrubs.  You can check out my review here.  Also, if you're a fan of the Sugar Crush scent check out all of Soap and Glory's BRAND NEW Sugar Crush products including a fragrance mist, body spray and body lotion here.

As you may have noticed I went slightly Body Wash mad on my trip to Boots!  Aussie is one of my favourite hair care brands as I love the scent and how soft it makes my hair feel.  So I was so excited when I found out that Aussie have just released their very own body washes.  I have so far tried the Shower Smoothie Body Wash, which smells very similar to the original Aussie scent and also leaves my skin feeling so soft!

As I was on holiday I decided to purchase the travel sized Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo and conditioner, which are infused with Australian Macadamia Nut Oil.  This range from Aussie is one which I find helps keep my dry hair feeling soft and moisturised, and as I mentioned earlier - it smells amazing!

The benefits of coconut water for keeping hydrated are well known - and after having heard some great stuff about the coconut water shampoo and conditioner range from OGX I decided to pick some up.  Both the shampoo and conditioner smell exactly like fresh coconut, which I love, especially for the summer.  I can't wait to try these out!

This is also an item I decided to purchase after hearing great stuff about it from other bloggers.  I was on the hunt for something that would offer heat protection as well as keep my hair feeling soft and frizz-free - and this sounded perfect.  After having tried the product twice so far I can say that I am so impressed, as it is unlike any other hair product I have tried.  It is non-greasy, keeps my hair feeling super soft and looking healthy.  Full review coming soon!

I have been searching for the perfect nude shade for summer - and I have finally found it!  This lipstick by L'Oreal is a warm peachy nude, which compliments my fair skin quite nicely.  It has a creamy consistency, opaque finish and is very moisturising on the lips - although this does mean that you may need to top it up more frequently.  Full review coming soon!

As I forgot to pack my mascara when I went away on holiday I decided to pick up and old trusty favourite of mine.  I initially intended on purchasing the new Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, it was out of stock.  However, The Falsies mascara did not disappoint - it really does add so much length and volume to my lashes!

As I was travelling through Gatwick Airport I thought I would make the most out of the World Duty Free shop, and get hold of the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation.  As the weather has got warmer, I have not been enjoying wearing liquid foundation as I find it feels so sticky on my skin and doesn't last long, so I thought I would try out a powder foundation instead.  So far I have been loving this - it offers medium coverage, keeps any shine at bay and is quite long lasting on my skin.  Although I am an NW15 in Studio Fix Fluid, I found that the NW20 complimented my skin much better with this product!


I hope you enjoyed my huge beauty haul!  What's on your beauty wishlist this month?
