You may be able to tell I've paid yet another visit to The Body Shop, among other places. I just love it there okay! June has come so quickly and it's just over a month until A So Called Beauty Blog turns 1 years old. It's just crazy! I started this Currently Loving series because although I used to do a monthly favourites post, I never had enough good things to talk about. So, with Currently Loving, whenever I fancy sticking a few items that I've been loving over the weeks here on my blog, I can share them at any time with you guys. With it being summer, my beauty routine has slightly changed, but as always, the fruity smells are still present. 

This month in the makeup department, I've been using Le Lip Liner Magique in L'oreal Paris' Colour Riche collection. For those of you who aren't familiar with this product or like me, have been walking past it for months wondering what exactly it does, then you'll be happy to know that it goes a long way in protecting and prolonging the life of your lip liner or lipstick. It acts as a top coat protectant or a base coat lip primer. If you're wearing a heavy lip liner and a dark shade of lip stick, this magic stick can prime the lips for just that and make sure it lasts the whole day (or night for you party goers). I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I've noticed a huge difference in the wear of my liners and lip sticks! The only issue I have with this product is how the actual stick doesn't last very long and after around 10 uses I have to repurchase it. Ironic really!

Another makeup favourite which you may have seen on my blog before, is in Born Pretty's UBUB range and it's the Deep Sea Elements Double Liquid Liner*. Unlike most liquid liners, this one is super easy to apply and looks so beautiful on. If you'd like to read a full review then just head on over to my previous post. I also have a discount code for Born Pretty (CALLG10) for 10% off!
In the body care department, I have yet another Body Shop favourite. If you're a fan of Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleansing balm then you'll be very familiar with the beautiful aroma of the moringa plant. I have loved the smell ever since I started using the balm, so who could blame me for wanting more? The Body Shop have a wonderful Moringa Sorbet which is like a light body moisturiser, perfect for the summer when you don't want or need to cake you body in too much thick moisturiser. It's smell is not to offensive but stays with you just enough for you to enjoy. My skin is noticeably smoother and feels amazing after use. 

The Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash is a rather new product for me, but I'm certainly not new to the range itself! I've used almost all of the Body Shops Vitamin E range, so I just knew I had to try out this one. If you like foaming cleansers, like me, but due to recent warnings that what they contain is bad for your skin have been scared to use them, then this cleanser may just allow some repose. It does have a lovely foam but isn't blatantly foaming and doesn't contain the typical nasties that foaming cleansers unfortunately have. This all in one cleanser, is perfect for a single morning cleanse or a second evening cleanse (it's also perfect when used with an exfoliating brush like my one). 
Last but not least, I've been enjoying the Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream and I'm really loving it. This product is a Birch Box exclusive and I got it as a sample quite a while ago. When I went looking for it I found out it was £50 for the full tub! Maybe in a few months I might invest! As for the cream, I can see why its so expensive. It works on the skins issues straight away and the results are amazing. My skin was smoother, my blemishes were hugely reduced and the best thing is that although it's highly moisturising, it's not greasy at all. It has a lovely smell and a little certainly goes a long way. This is an investment, but definitely worth it! 

What have you been lovely lately? Tried any of my favourites?
