Have you entered my Pat McGrath giveaway here?
I skipped my monthly 3 treats for 3 budgets post in July because I was on my blogging break but thought I'd bring it back this month. I know during lockdown, people were either shopping a lot more or not at all, whereas now I think things are a little more 'normal' in some respects and are possibly treating themselves a little now. I have three great products for three budgets so let's get into it.....
Under £20: Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray: I really didn't want to buy this or plan on it because I'm sick of the constant churning out of products by this brand but when I saw Wayne Goss' video of this, showing that it was bulletproof, I thought I'd buy the mini. The main reason is that I constantly have a temperature of over 38 degrees and I need something as strong as this spray to keep my makeup completely in place, if I decide to wear some, especially on humid days. It really does work brilliantly as keeping makeup exactly as applied for hours and hours on end, however if you have dry skin (like I do), you really need to do your skin prep well or it will make skin look ever more dry. Anyone with oily skin or anyone who finds it hard to keep makeup in place, will LOVE this spray. £15.
£20-50: Jo Malone Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist: I reviewed this back in March (here) and absolutely loved it so I was delighted to receive a new one as a birthday gift a few weeks back. It really is the most relaxing scent - I think that even those who don't like lavender would enjoy this as the combination with musk dulls it. I spray it on my pillow and bed linen around 15 minutes before I get into bed to let it settle, rather than immediately before I go to bed. It really is a treat and makes a beautiful gift. £25.
£50+: Jo Loves Orange Butterflies Perfume: First of all, how pretty is the bottle?! The more I try from Jo Loves, the more I love the brand (if you weren't aware, she is actually Jo Malone who started the brand but sold it when she became ill and this is her new brand - I say new but it's been around.a few years and her scent combinations are unrivalled). The scent itself combines orange blossom, mandarin, neroli and petitgrain and it makes me think of warm summer nights - the closest I'll get to those gorgeous holiday evenings after long days lounging in the sun with an Aperol Spritz in hand! This was another gorgeous birthday gift and it really is a treat. I can see myself turning into a Jo Loves addict! £70.
Will you be treating yourself to anything this month (or have you already)? Has anything here caught your eye? I'd love to hear!
Thanks for reading!
