August 2016 Favourites


I’ve kept my promise to try and do a Monthly Favourites for beauty products, and here we’ve got the August 2016 Favourites! A lot of new product came across my desk this month, so I hope you enjoy having a peek at what I’ve been loving.


As mentioned in my Skincare Routine for Dry/Combination Skin post, I’ve really been loving the Hydrabio range from Bioderma. The Bioderma Hydrabio Micellaire Water (RRP $31.99) and Bioderma Hydrabio Serum (RRP $45.99) have been used every day without fail. I love that it’s hydrating and moisturising for the skin, but it’s not oily, greasy or too heavy. At the end of the day, my skin is always changing. And while most days it’s dry, overall it’s more like Combination. I explain my skincare routine in this post, so be sure to have a read if you’re interested!

Another favourite this month in terms of skin and body care, is the MooGoo Fresh Cream Natural Deodorant (RRP $8.50). After participating in the 28 Day Challenge set by the lovely team at MooGoo, I am an advocate for their natural deodorant. After some initial challenges, I’ve learnt that sweating is GOOD. Seriously though, think about it. If you aren’t sweating out those nasties that your body doesn’t want or need, where does it go?

Now, onto the makeup I’ve been loving.

It’s no secret that both the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation and the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner have been my fast favourites. I picked them up at the end of July from Sephora during a sneaky trip to Gold Coast. You can check out my in depth reviews on the foundation and liner from earlier in the week to see if you would love them as much as I do!

Lastly, and possibly the star of the show, is the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil (RRP $42.00). I was lucky enough to attend the Brow Masterclass Event in August, and receive some of their new brow goodies! This brow pencil is super fine and precise for creating small, hair like strokes and quite frankly – I’m in love!

What have been your August 2016 Favourites?

  • I am also loving the fresh cream deodorant! It’s so nice for a natural one! I must pull that serum out of my collection and start using it! I’ve heard such good things! <3

      Definitely do, it’s magical! I need to buy a refill of it 🙂

  • The Precisely my brow has been a firm favourite of mine as well! I will have to add it to my September faves because I actually forgot to include it in my Aug Faves, probably because it was in my handbag because I can’t seem to be without it now!!! Great favourites! I also love the Bioderma Hydrabio serum! It’s so hydrating but not greasy at all. I will have to check out your full review of the Kat Von D foundation! I haven’t tried it yet! xo

      Haha I know right, it’s amazing! I’ve gotten more compliments on my brows now that I’ve been using this pencil and using Hannah’s tips!

  • Love that serum!! That was in my last favourites as well 🙂 I received the micellar water from them as well so I’ll be giving that a go soon – hoping to do a micellar water comparison post with all those I currently have.

    The Benefit brow products seems pretty awesome – I’ll have to get my hands on some more of the new stuff, I’ve only tried the older range of stuff.

      I definitely see a little difference between the two micellar waters – I did a post on it a few weeks ago! 🙂 Hope you enjoy it! I’m keen to get my hands on the 3D Brows from the new range 🙂 x

    I’ve heard great things about that Kat von D foundation. x
