Hi Lovies! Ermagad, it's July! I can't believe it - already half a year has just flown by. The older I get the faster time seems to go~
Anyways, I managed to do another beauty faves post! I tried a few new products last month, and really liked some of them so I want to feature them in a post tonight ^^
I've reviewed Sanctuary Spa a few times already, and I have to say I've loved pretty much every SS product I've tried so far! This time there are two SS products that made it into my faves post - the Radiance Exfoliating Scrub and the Illuminating Lotion.
Sanctuary Spa Brightening Facial Exfoliating Scrub (RRP $19.99)
Am definitely enjoying this face scrub at the moment - with its apricot and grape seed granules, which exfoliates the skin, and it's mixture of pumpkin, pineapple and papaya extracts which work to increase cell renewal, my skin looks ultra bright and fresh after every time I use it!
It smells of lemon and something like mandarin? It's quite refreshing, and the granules aren't too big, so it doesn't feel harsh when I massage this into my skin. I use this a few times a week, and always notice a brightness and smoothness to my skin after usage.
Sanctuary Spa Illuminating Moisture Lotion (RRP $19.99)
Described as a light, protective lotion containing radiance boosting particles, and an exotic blend of ingredients such as red bush tea, algae and papaya, I just couldn't pass this lotion up!
The lotion is light and a little runny, and feels hydrating when you apply it to the skin. Only a small pea sized amount is needed to coat my face, to leave it dewy looking. I like to use this to freshen up my skin when I look tired, and when I don't have a lot of time for skincare/makeup in the mornings. I just apply this straight after serum and before bb cream, and it works well to hydrate my skin plus and give my base makeup a dewy finish.
This lotion isn't for everyone though - I can't really see this working for oilier skin types, and it's not hydrating enough for dry or very dry skin types, but other than that I personally like it a lot.
Models Prefer Cream Blush in Tickled Pink (RRP $? It was part of a limited edition kit)
I don't think I've used any other blush the last few weeks! This has been my only go to blush, lol. It's a pretty rosy-pink, wind-up cream blush, with a bit of a glowy sheen to it, that I just adore.
The pigmentation can be built up, and the formula is smooth and glides onto the skin easily, so it's super easy and quick to apply. Even though it's creamy it doesn't feel greasy, and it doesn't easily wear off.

Peach Blow Lipstick in #5 (RRP $5.89)
I reviewed this lippie not too long ago (review here) - it's been my fave lip colour of the month, since it's such a bright and pretty pink ^.^
It's fairly long wearing, not drying, and quite pigmented so I've been wearing it a lot~
Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick in #8 Ivory Baby Star (RRP $6+ online)
I hadn't been wearing much eye makeup since I got my lash extensions (and because I was lazy), but when I did want to do eye makeup, I've been favouring this 'bling bling' stick from Etude. It's a super pretty ivory-gold shade that I am loving <3
It's a creamy crayon type stick, which glides onto the lid easily, and leaves the prettiest sheen with a some sparkle.
I also like it cos it's quick to apply, hehe.

And this concludes my June Beauty Faves post!
Hopefully it was an interesting read ^.^
See you in my next post~!
