June Favourites 2011

27 Jul

It doesn’t look like I will get around to doing a June Favourites video, just like it doesn’t look like I’ll be 5kg lighter this summer. Oh well. You win some you lose some. Some major tooth pain from a root canal procedure, coupled with a sense of blah has really put my mojo off this month. Being in a drugged up stupor wasn’t very conducive to blog writing/youtube videos either (that may work for some people, but not me). Hopefully the worst of it is behind me now, I don’t want to be mojo-less for much longer.

So I know it’s almost to the end of July, but better late than never right??! Here is the rundown of my favourite products from the month of June:

White D-Tox [Bright Cell] Cleanser – $49.00 (AUD) for 125ml

This instant brightening micro-scrub cleanser is formulated with Biotherm’s ‘Bright Cell’ complex and Pure Extract of Thermal Plankton to help minimise the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots on the skin’s surface. And it does just that! Don’t you love products that do what they actually say they should. Let me answer that for you, YES! Hence why it is one of my favourites for the month (and every month mind you).

Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol – $60.00 (AUD)

The swirl of rich pigments in this baked blush creates a natural flush that lasts all day. The shimmering shades imbue skin with a ravishing pop of color – who doesn’t want that? Blush Patrol is enriched with Vitamins A and C. I love the fine gold flecks in this blush, that would suit any skin tone. The colour pay off is incredible, and gives your face that glowy gleam that we crave so much in Winter. I have been reaching for this blush a lot the past month to instil some colour and glow to my dull complexion.

NARS Orgasm Illuminator – $58.00 (AUD) for 30ml

Another shimmer inducer! This luminous cream magically transforms lackluster skin into a flawless, glowing complexion. I love the faint gold fleck combined with the peachiness of this, as I always like to wear coral blushes. The Orgasm Illuminator gives me glowing cheeks and a lit-from-within look that perks up my lack-lustre complexion.

Biotherm Skin.Ergetic Night Cream – $65.00 (AUD) for 50ml

Biotherm creates SKIN.ERGETIC NIGHT, its first overnight visible high-recovery moisturiser with five tea & seed fractions. A formula with a purifying complex that promotes the elimination of impurities generated by free radicals on the skin’s surface and diminishes visible signs of fatigue. As a non-user of night creams, this one was PERFECT for me. I was always scared that a night cream was going to be too oily and heavy for my skin, but this night cream from Biotherm is such a winner for younger skin. It hasn’t broken me out and I don’t wake up with a oil slick. Phew!

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Minis Collection – $24.95 (AUD) for 4 x 3.75ml

A limited edition collection of four mini swashbuckling shades from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. The OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Minis Collection contains: Skull + Glossbones: a khaki gray shade; Planks A Lot: a lavender shade; Sparrow Me The Drama: a strawberry pink shade; Stranger Tides: a sage green shade. I love all the colours and they all apply like a dream!

Rahua Finishing Treatment – $65.00 (AUD) for 2oz

A finishing treatment that rivals the famed Morrocanoil (in my opinion). Super-fine Rahua oil molecules deeply penetrate the hair’s cortex to rebuild even the most damaged tresses – strengthens strands and leaving hair smooth, shiny and frizz-free. Silicone-free, it strengthens and allows hair to grow longer while providing a glossy, weightless finish. Rich with organic and 100% natural ingredients… oh and it smells nommy!

Have you tried any of these? 

Tell me, do you have any favourites that I MUST try?

    The White D-Tox cleanser sure does sound tempting, you may have just created a new lemming.

    Sorry to hear about your tooth problems, that is my worst nightmare!

    Oh and your header is fabulous by the way, love it!

      Thanks Gilly! Tooth problems are by far the worst and most expensive. ICK! The White D-Tox range is great… especially for someone like me who has freckles and is always trying to find a wonder product to fade them – THIS IS IT! I have tried many products and I would have to say that this cleanser and microdermabrasion are my HG pigmentation faders. Just be warned that the cleanser is drying and only really suitable for oily skin.

    NOICE Favs! The Blush Patrol sounds fabbo, I am loving Biotherms White d-tox BB cream, does marvellous things to nudey skin post gym etc when I cant be arsed putting make-up on!!

    Very interesting re Rahua & silicone free, Ive been wondering are there any oils like that out there sans silicones

      Thanks Julie 🙂 I am so in love with Biotherm lately… I tried a sample of that BB Cream and was quite impressed. Although I do like a bit of coverage, it would be awesome to just ‘slap on’ like you said. I’ll be doing a post on the Rahua Finishing Treatment soon!

    Your poor thing with your tooth troubles, I hope they get better soon!

    Love the favourites (especially the OPI Pirates minis – great collection) and I’m interested in Rahua as I don’t mind Moroccanoil, but the smell gets to me after a while.

    • hip&haute July 27, 2011 at 12:10 pm #

      I have only just fully bounced back (i.e. no tooth pain and no more pain killers)… what a month! Glad that it’s over. Thanks for your kind comment! I like both the Moroccanoil and the Rahua. I will be doing a post soon on the Rahua and I might do some comparisons between the two!

    Stupid Dentists causing pain and torment :p I know exactly what it’s like!!!

    I’ve been eyeing Biotherm for a while but haven’t taken the purchasing plunge… now I will I think! Anything that helps with pigmentation!

    As for a product you HAVE to try…? ROUGE COCO SHINES. hehehehehehehe! ❤

      Wahhh, yes I don’t ever want to go back to the Dentist. But I guess it’s not their fault I was naughty and left it so long. YES YES try out Biotherm. I love it. Recently converted my Mum too and she absolutely loves it.

    I haven’t tried any of these, but I just ordered the Copacabana Illuminator 😀

      Oh jealous… Copacabana looks amazeballs.
      Thanks for the hug 🙂
