I'm going to sound like an old lady now, but it's scary how fast this year is flying at I can't believe it's summer already and we're over half way through the year! To celebrate the summer, which is absolutely gorgeous at the minute, we're holding a giveaway. The prize is an amazing one, and we've chosen our favourite product from each of the last 6 month's favourite posts, and you're bound to love them just as much as we do. So what will you be winning?

If you've been following my healthy eating story here you'll know that I have finally got sick of my fussy, faddy eating ways after 28 years and decided it's time to really shake my diet and my life up and try new foods. Where do you start though when you've only eaten the same few foods for your whole life, and never cooked anything more exciting than a spag bol? Well, you go to Gousto*. Gousto is like a subscription box but for food, and if that doesn't sound like the most exciting thing ever then I don't know what does!
I'm always torn in summer between a pretty pastel shade on my nails or a vivid, tan-enhancing neon and tend to find myself switching between them. Bright, pretty colours on my nails never fails to cheer me up and I particularly love colours that clash with my outfits and are always noticeable. This spring and summer I've been favouring these 5 and they're mostly new finds for me too.
Like many people, I love Bioderma and it's a staple in my collection. You can't beat it for taking makeup off quickly and I love everything about it, so when I was contacted recently and asked if I'd like to try the new Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Micellar Cleansing Fluid* alternative, I jumped at the chance! Eucerin is a brand I haven't tried much of and I don't know why because the few products I've tried I've adored, plus they sell it in my favourite online store Escentual so I have no excuse really.
Finding the perfect summer base has been tricky for me this year, until I came across the Rodial Instaglam Skin Tint*. I like a lightweight base in the warmer months but with having acne scarring I also need something which is going to give me coverage. I also have freckles though which I don't like to hide, and dry skin which I like to keep moisturised and looking luminous too, so to be fair it is a big ask! I've found everything I could want in this beautiful tinted moisturiser though and I've really been enjoying wearing it.
I posted recently about the amazing Makeup Revolution Naked 3 dupe, and I continue to be utterly amazed with how close a dupe it actually is and what great quality you get for your money. I bought the other 2 palettes in the series too, the dupes for the Naked 1 and 2, and seeing as I already had the MUA Undressed palettes which are also Naked dupes, I thought it'd be interesting to do a comparison post. Both dupe palettes are £4 but which is better and which one should you be spending your money on? Is there even anything in it or are they both essentially the same thing?
