Has Summer finally been and gone in the UK?? Honestly how lush has the weather been over the last few days, however typical that during said weather I've been ill in bed. Anyway since starting my mass declutter, I've been able to try and revisit some products which I have had and some new favourites have been found. First up to link in with the good weather is Clinique's City Block Sheer SPF 25, which I bought on the recommendation of Caroline Hirons. As I've moved into using acids on my skin (and the fact we have sun), I've been religiously reaching for this. There's no scent to this SPF and it's quickly absorbed into the skin, however this does leave my skin feeling tacky and I can feel it all day. Personally if I'm using this, the only make up I will wear is some blusher, brows and mascara. What I do like though is that this is slightly tinted, this does go once you rub it into your skin, however I do find this is a good guide to make sure that my face is covered.

Speaking of acids and another cult product started by the Hirons, is Pixi Glow Tonic. I bagged this little travel size bottle from ASOS for £10, just to try it and I will be buying a full size once this runs out. I've been using this for about three weeks now and I've really seen a difference in the texture of my skin. Does this live up to the hype - YES!! Keeping in with the skincare theme, I've finally opened (yes Angela) some of my Ordinary products and I'm really loving their Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. Again this in conjunction with the Pixi Glow Tonic has been working wonders on my skin. However, due to the recent controversy with the brand, this is a brand I cannot support any more, and once these products are used up, I won't be purchasing from Deciem anymore.

Whilst fighting over the swarms of people trying to get their hands on Revolution Conceal and Define aka the Tarte Shape Tape due (full review here), I ended up going to a mooch around Superdrug and spotted their new Argon Hair Range and picked up their Argon Hair Therapy Pre-Shampoo Treatment which is a cheaper version of the iconic Elasticizer from Philip Kingsley - £3.99 to be precise. Now that my hair is getting blonder, I've been making more of a conscious effort in keeping my hair in the best possible condition it can be in and this treatment has worked wonders. Basically you use it exactly the same as the PK Elasticizer and the results are the same. I've already recommended this to a few people at work. I find that using this over the PK is that I can get away with a day or two extra without my hair going super greasy. For the price, it's worth trying.

Finally, you know my love affair with Tarte and this teeny tiny blusher in Paaaaaarrrtttyyyy from the Sephora birthday gift last year is the perfect peachy pink which I have been wearing to work on a daily basis. I have seen many reviews saying how it's hard to see an impact when using these blushers however I've been using this with a Real Techniques Contour Brush and I'm starting to get through this quite quickly. Like all Tarte blushers when you swatch it with your finger, the colour is very pigmented, however depending on what type of brush you use to apply determines whether you want a sheer wash of colour, or actually show the world that you're wearing blush. Personally I like to go a little heavy handed with this, just so this lasts throughout the day, however if I go in too hard, it can easily be blended out. If you can get your hands on any of their blush sets you won't be disappointed.
