I’m a little bit late with this post, but better late than never and I’ve got a great selection of products for my favourites this month. I know I don’t do this every month but I’ve really been enjoying using so many things this month that I just felt that it was a must. So, here goes nothing…
Soap & Glory ‘Clean on Me’ Clarifying Shower Gel
This little beauty has been in my collection for a long time but only recently have I come to using it religiously. It’s beautifully creamy consistency leaves my skin feeling so lovely and soft after use and the smell is just delicious! The built in body lotion means my skin feels nourished and isn’t left feeling tight and dry. The best is that you only need a small amount to get a very generous lather, so the massive 500ml bottle lasts ages!
Soap & Glory ‘Girligo’ Body Moisturising Mist
This is the perfect partner to the ‘Clean on Me’ shower gel. Again, a little goes a long way and after you’ve showered this gem just adds that signature S&G scent to body to leave you feeling fresh and moisturised for longer. I’ve loved using these two products together all month and will probably continue the routine for a while to come.
Soap & Glory ‘Peaches & Clean’ 4 in 1 Deep Cleansing Milk
A bit of a S&G heavy month, this was a new find for me this month. I’d been looking for a new cleanser to try for a while which wouldn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight, and this seems to be the one for me! I’ve been using after removing the majority of my make up with facial wipes and it removes any excess foundation brilliantly and leaves my face beautifully soft, fresh and clean It’s not broken me out and also doesn’t dry out my skin at all. The smell is also delicious!
Simple Kind to Skin Vital Vitamin Night Cream
This is an old faithful for me and something I use daily and will never get bored or tired of. It nourishes my skin perfectly meaning my skin is replenished through the night and soft and supple when I wake up in the morning. It also great for tackling stubborn dry patches around my nose and forehead.
Lynx Attract for Her
I’m quite surprised I haven’t seen more about this product around the blogosphere. I have to admit I was dubious about it, thinking it was just another gimmick, an excuse for Lynx to advertise more skantly-clad women throwing themselves at men. That, and also the fact that I hate any scent of Lynx for men. Having said that, when I smelt it out of curiosity in the shop my mind quickly changed. The scent is very fresh and feminine and just really pleasant to wear. It stays on your skin and clothes for a long time as well, which for body spray I find is quite rare. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and just a little tip, it’s much cheaper in Superdrug than in Boots 😉
Dove Fresh Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena
One of the best deodorants I’ve ever used. It lasts for hours and hours, leaving you feeling clean and fresh and the smell is to die for! I’d say you definitely have a good deodorant on your hands when you can still get bursts of the scent throughout the day.
I’ve only had this January and now I don’t know what I would do without it! I have very fine hair which is easily damaged through brushing so a product that claims to prevent damage to your hair and doesn’t tug and pull at the hair was something that certainly appealed to me. I’ve found I have a lot less hair falling out while brushing since using this and a lot less effort is required to remove those stubborn knots in my mangled mane. As an added bonus mine is purple and sparkly… it’s the little things!
17 Peep Show Mascara – Brown/Black
I bought this an an emergency mascara when I realised I’d completely forgotten to put mascara on on my way to work one morning. I bought it as it was the cheapest I could find in Boots in a brown shade. I really wasn’t expecting much from it at all but I have been so impressed with it I’ve used it everyday since. It doesn’t clump or flake, stays put all day and separates my lashes effortlessly giving great length. I’ve also been loving Topshop’s Lash Catcher Mascara when I’ve been feeling like a black liner and mascara combo 😉
Topshop Kohl Pencil – Saddle
My ultimate eyeliner pencil!! A beautiful brown with a hint of shimmer, it’s creamy consistency means it easy to apply and easy to blend. As you can probably tell from the size of mine in the picture this gets a hell of a lot of use and I’ll be stocking up ready for when this is all gone. I don’t think I’ll use any other eyeliner ever again this is definitely my staple item and at only £4 it doesn’t break the bank either.
Natural Collection Powder Blush – Peach Melba
A subtle peach which gives a healthy and cute flush to my pale complexion. It suits my skin tone and hair colour really nicely. It’s really easy to blend and a little goes a long way. You also get a great amount of product for your money at only £1.99. A really pretty shade and perfect for the spring/summer season.
Yankee Candle Lip Balm – Christmas Cookie
I had absolutely no idea these existed, so when I saw them on eBay I couldn’t resist buying one as a self confessed Yankee Candle junkie. Not only does this smell delicious (one of my favourite scents!) it’s really moisturising on the lips and leaves that nourished feeling for a good few hours and even when the majority has worn off it still leaves your lips lovely and soft. The balms also contain SPF 15 which is an added bonus. The cute packaging in the form of a mini jar is also really cute! As far as I know you can’t buy these in the UK but i bought mine here from a UK Seller on eBay. They currently have a few different flavours for sale too.
MUA Immaculate Collection Pallette
I’ve been getting a lot of use out of this this month and experimenting with brighter colours to get me out of the habit of constantly only using my Heaven and Earth Pallette. The pigmentation of the colours in the immaculate collection is amazing. They do not crease and stay put all day even without the use of primer beforehand. My most reached for shades have been Number 15, a pale green/teal shimmer (helps bring out the blue in my eyes) Number 20, a matte white for brightening my eyes and great for blending with darker colours so as not to look so heavy and Number 14, a beautiful copper shimmer for a great neutral look with a hint of glam!
So, those are all the products I’ve loved this month (told you there were a lot!) What have you been enjoying this month? Have you used any of the products I’ve mentioned, what did you think?
