"I never knew exfoliating powder was a thing." 11 lifestyle things we're loving sick this month.

June is the month where we put ourselves first — just ask the team at Mamamia.

It's been all about putting our bodies, our mindset and our lifestyles all on the right path — maybe it's because the weather is colder or maybe it's because we've hit that (exhausting) mid-point of year — but regardless of our reasons, we thought it would be downright rude not to share just what exactly is filling our cups as of late. 

From outrageously luxurious skincare to a perfect pair of figure-hugging jeans, there's a lot to rave about. 

Here you’ll find reviews of the best lifestyle products that we’ve rediscovered and fallen in love with this month. 

Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant, $99.

"I used to believe scrubbing my skin raw and overusing skincare products was what I needed for perfect skin. Then I met the Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant and basically... where have I been? I NEVER knew exfoliating powder was a thing! 

"All you need to do is take about half a teaspoon (I use a little less than that) of the exfoliating powder with wet hands and begin rubbing together to make the most creamy lather. It's changed the game for me. It's evened out my skin texture and tone, plus it's SO easy to use. 

"I feel extra better using the Daily Milkfoliant knowing it's made with completely vegan ingredients and is cruelty free.

"It's no surprise people tend to lean away from exfoliating, but Dermalogica's latest release is the most gentle way to polish my face and leave me feeling smooth and luxurious! The Daily Milkfoliant is the only product I will use to exfoliate now, and my friends/housemates have taken a shining to stealing mine... Yes, it's seriously that good and now I have Christmas presents sorted.

"The sleek blue bottle is made from 50 per cent recycled plastic and has a vegan formula that gently polishes away dead skin cells and any nasty impurities (it's packed with oat, coconut, botanical extracts, Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids).

"It's been in my routine for a month now and it has completely changed my skin for the better." - Shannen.

Embody Women Jeans, $259.99.

"I tried out the Embody Women Jacqui Vintage Blue denim jeans, and I love them! They're really snug and smooth on the legs without being uncomfortable. I'm typically a size 18-20 and fit the size 20 the best. 

"They're super versatile and can be styled so many different ways so I absolutely recommend!" - Rose.

Le Labo Santal 26 Candle, $120.

"The scent of this candle makes me SO happy. Even when it's not lit, I still get wafts of it and it brings so much joy to my day. It is a pricey candle, but the quality is out of this world. It's a woody, leathery scent made out of 100 per cent soy wax and while the smell is hard to describe, it has a lot of depth and character.

"The best part is you can personalise the fragrance yourself by adding yours or a loved one's name on the candle label!" - Talia.

Nanoleaf Lines, $349.

"I'm a big lighting person. It sets a special ambience and vibe. I have had many lights over the years, but without a doubt, Nanoleaf Lines are my favourite. You can pair it to your Google Home and adjust the lighting from your phone. There's so many colours and features you can play around with too. 

"We put ours behind our cloud mirror just to add something special to our living room and I am OBSESSED!" - Yahn.

An English breakfast.

"I've been incorporating new lifestyle choices that have been filling my cup exponentially and that includes a good ol' English brekky with milk and sugar on the side. 

"It brings me joy to be able to chill out in the mornings without any stress. It's relatively cheap to do as well, and it is just a perfect way for me to get me-time!" - Eleanor.

One Pat, Pan, Planet, $35.75.

"I love to cook and recently I've been making a more concerted effort to cook with a bunch of delicious vegetables. Once you know how to cook them, they're so yum and healthy (two things I thought couldn't co-exist). 

"I've been using the One Pot, Plan, Plan Recipes book by Anna Jones for guidance. Game changer!" - Emmeline.

Bed Thread Linens set, $340.

"I've put this off for so long but this week, I finally caved and invested in some new Bed Threads linen sheets and a quilt cover set, and its changed the game!

"The fabric is so soft and buttery, made from 100 per cent French Flax Linen. The colours are to die for as well." - Lisa. 

Satechi Eco Leather Deskmate, $39.99.

"It's bizarre how happy something can make you when you're an adult, but the Eco Leather Deskmate by Satechi genuinely does. 

"I have one in navy and find it really matches the aesthetic of my room beautifully without being too overbearing. So nice!" - Mitchell.

Cotton On Trackpants, $34.99.

"I bought a pair of cotton on track pants and I refuse to wear anything else. They're so soft and comfy and cute!" - Rose. 

Upcycling old glass jars.

"This is quite random, but I've been planting cuttings of my plants into random old jars and they look so sweet! It makes your room/home so much happier and alive. Highly recommend." - Rose.

Fashion Mode Jewellery, $49.99.

"I have new pieces, which are sterling silver/gold plated. I’m a sucker for gold jewellery, I find it goes well with any outfit and elevates it, plus it just makes me very happy! I’m a jewellery gal, so any opportunity to add a new piece to my collection is a yes for me.

"I have the 14K Gold Plated Mini CZ Chain Link Earrings and the Link Chain Bracelet. Both around $40 each!" - Isabella.
