AUGUST: TOP FIVE

My top products I’ve been enjoying in home, beauty and style for the month.
You can find last month’s here.

As life is starting to pick up the pace again, I’ve been appreciating time at home even more and seen it as such a comfort – so have been loving comfy clothes, robes and I’ve found the best sandals that don’t rub (even on first wear) and work in the rain, too (got to be ready in England!)

PAI CARBON STAR OIL
if you have combination skin that’s prone to breakouts like I do, the new Carbon Star oil from Pai is for you. I’ve never been so impressed by the overnight change in my skin! Even at first try I woke up with reduced redness, silky smooth, balanced and hydrated skin. It clears skin by balancing  the sebum production and fighting acne causing bacteria. And  of course it’s non scented and non comedogenic (pore blocking).
You can use my site wide 15% discount code EMMA15 at this link

GINA TRICOT SHIRT
I feel like we’ve all accepted that there is no longer a line between pyjamas and day wear – and this stripe pyjama shirt is just that. Made of a super soft cotton that works as well for day as in bed, I haven’t taken it off since buying. It’s a great price too – HERE

ARIZONA LOVE SANDALS
It’s probably been 3 years since I first coveted these sandals, and after my most trusty black sandals gave in to years of wear, I decided to get these as their replacement. I went for the black bandana colour (although they come in a variety of colours) as I like sandals that go with everything. They are insanely comfortable (thanks to the cotton wrapping around the straps I think) and the sole doesn’t get damaged by the rain. English summer win – HERE

ESTHEDERM ADAPTASUN TAN BOOSTER
if you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know I’m a huge fan of this product, as it is  truly one of a kind. It is a spray that wakes up the melanin in the skin, to prepare the skin for sun exposure (often why we burn on the first day of a holiday is because  our melanin (aka our tan) takes a few days to come to the surface to protect us naturally) and helps you get the most healthy, even, long lasting tan. I love using it after sun exposure too (where I’ve used sun protection too, of course) to help keep my tan looking good for weeks after! I’ve found it at 20% off  HERE

DEIJI STUDIOS ROBE
Made of sustainable soft french linen and modelled on a Japanese kimono, this robe is perhaps my prize possession. Yes, it’s a lot for a robe but when I wear it 10 hours a day it’s worth investing right? It makes doing my evening skincare routine and making morning coffee feel so much more *wholesome*. The detailing of the delicate pattern is so beautiful and it’s one size so super easy to order online – HERE

I’m a big fan of their pyjama shorts too.
