I always love to talk to you guys about the products in my collection I can't get enough of. These kinds of posts are great as I don't have to talk about one specific category, or a collection, I just throw in some random bits and bots and let you know why they're great. I have a couple of skincare items, and a couple of makeup bits too. I've been using all of these pretty much everyday, and they're very summer appropriate as well. 

We'll go in some kind of order here and kick things off with skincare. The first step in my evening routine is removing my makeup. The Thank You Farmer Cleansing Water is a fabulous micellar water which is really gentle on the skin, yet does a great job at breaking down makeup. I will always go in with a second cleanse, just to make sure there's no traces left behind, but I love this as an initial step! I simply take some of the product on two cotton pads and gently massage over my eyes, then move on to the rest of my skin. I don't find you have to tug around the eye area, and it doesn't sting at all, which is a problem I find with most other micellar waters. 

Sunscreen is super super super important in the summer. You should use it all year round if you want to look after your skin, but in the summer it's absolutely vital! I always reach for a high SPF on my face, at least SPF30. French pharmacy brands seem to have the sunscreen market covered, they have some really good formulas on offer. I've been using the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF50 which has been a staple in my daily routine. It is fairly reminiscent of a traditional suncream formula, but I don't find it clogs my pores or sits on the skin. If you're looking for a new facial SPF, give this one a go! It's also under 100ml, so it's perfect for sticking in you hand luggage when traveling. 

My first makeup must-have has got to be the Benefit GALifornia Blush. This is the perfect peachy summer blush which leaves the cheeks with a gorgeous sheen. This isn't a matte formula, so it's really brightening and I love the way it makes my cheeks glow. This also smells amazing, as do all Benefit blushes. The only drawback is the packaging, everyone knows the box blushes aren't the easiest things to store and they are bulky, buuuut if you can get over that they are a lovely formula.

Mascara wise I have a new fave. I've heard amazing things about the L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara, so I was super excited to give it a go for myself. It's meant to be very comparable to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, I haven't tried that, but the wands do look similar. I find this doesn't smudge, and the applicator gives tonnes of volume without clumping. The wand it pretty big, so you have be a bit careful when applying this to ensure it doesn't go all over your eye lid. For the summer months I always try and find a long-wear mascara that won't smear all down my face, and this one certainly ticks those boxes!
