Beauty picks for August
Estéban Teck and Tonka Refresher Oil
This refresher oil exudes elegance and style for your home. Brought to you by Jean-Max Estéban, he was a renowned storyteller who took joy in sharing the story as to how his company came about, and that it was love at first sight. To convey his emotions to her, he took to perfume and a collection was born.
This scent is deliciously warm with a hint of spice as it combines nutmeg, cinnamon and clove with amber, sandalwood and patchouli. Sweetness can be found from the dash of tonka bean that has been added too. An expert in fragrances for over 35 years, Estéban knows how to convey a fragrance in the home and this one really uplifts.

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara
With so many great reviews this is a must-try mascara. It adds volume to the lashes for a statement look and all without the dreaded clumping that you find with many mascaras. Not only that, it is also sweat-proof, smudge-proof and lasts for 24 hours.
This mascara from Rimmel has a patented extreme-wear formula with polymers, and it is this that build the lashes to give additional volume onto every single lash. The new tapered shape of the brush, with its soft, flexible bristles means it is easy to apply and gives full coverage from corner to corner. Also, the sleek design of the product makes it easy to carry, even in the smallest of clutch bags.
GOSH Argan Oil Conditioner
Argan oil has many qualities and for the hair, it has been nicknamed ‘liquid gold’ as it is known to thoroughly enrich, for hair that is healthy and ultra-shiny. Packed with nutrients, including fatty acids and vitamin E it makes a great conditioner and Gosh offers the perfect one.
There are many advantages to this product, the main ones being that it will treat split ends by providing plenty of nourishing moisture as well as taming frizzy locks to make it more manageable. This conditioner is also fortified with extra goodies such as shea butter, Pro-Vitamin B5 and keratin proteins to add further strength and shine.
Try once and notice a difference, it will quickly nourish, soften and strengthen the hair. To get the most out of this product, after washing your hair with GOSH Cosmetics shampoo, apply a generous amount of this conditioner to damp hair. Gently massage it into the hair and scalp, paying particular attention to the ends of the hair, and leave for up to 5 minutes. After this, rinse with warm water.
