Hi there! Since it’s end the of August, it’s time for my monthly favourites post – aka Mrs Strawberry Blonde’s August Beauty Awards. 🙂 I’m also making one change to my monthly favourites. From now on I’ll be choosing my favourites from all the products I’ve written about during the month.
This way I don’t have to keep track of what’s really new in my stash and when I’ve used what. I think it’ll also make more sense with products I’ve been using for longer – i.e. I like to use certain products for a few weeks to see if and how they work, and then I write about them.
OK, that’s sorted then. 🙂 And now, let’s get to my monthly favourites!
3rd place – Superdrug Clearly Youthful Hydrating Day Serum
Even though the serum has its flaws, I’m happy with the results it helped me achieve. I will definitely continue to use it and I will – without doubt – repurchase it. It will become a beauty staple!
Runner-Up – Superdrug Clearly Youthful Retexturising Glycolic Peel Off Mask
I cannot recommend this face mask enough. Within only a few weeks this face mask made a huge difference to my skin’s overall appearance. I’ll definitely continue to use it. And as soon as there’s another half price or BOGOF offer, I’ll stock up!
WINNER – Herbal Essences Shimmering Colour & Sensuously Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner
I cannot praise the original Herbal Essences collection enough. It’s bottled magic. It’s a shame the relaunched Rainforest Flowers collection has been discontinued again. 😦 I do have a few shampoos and conditioners left (needless to say I stocked up in time), but one sad day they’ll be gone… So if you see any of these Rainforest Flowers products in a bargain store near you, just buy them! You won’t regret it.
Now to the honourable mentions! Other products which I’ve enjoyed (and which I’ll continue to enjoy) big time are Original Source’s Liquorice and Mango & Macadamia shower products and Garnier’s Peach Body Lotion.
What are your favourite products this month? Have you used any of the products I’ve used? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!
