Monday 16 February 2015


I've not actually done a favourites post before so I figured February was the perfect month to start as there are quite a few products i've fallen in love with this month.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter has to be my favourite body moisturiser its extremely moisturising leaves my skin feeling super soft and it smells amazing, I personally think it smells like coconut others may disagree but either way I love it it's my go to body moisturiser when it's cold and my skin is dry and in need of a little love.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream I love this face moisturiser because it's so hydrating and while its cold my face gets really dry and this helps to keep that dryness at bay, I love using it just before bed and I always wake up with my skin feeling super soft each morning.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara this was a freebie with the March edition of Elle magazine and even though i've had a love/hate relationship with this mascara I thought I'd add it to my favourites, what I liked about it was how easy it was to remove, it didn't make my lashes clumpy or crispy and it did indeed curl and add volume them so it does what the package says. But what I didn't like was the fact that it is also suppose to be lengthening and I didn't see much improvement in that department, but because it didn't make my lashes crispy I was able to layer it on which I really liked so it may well be a mascara I do purchase in the near future.

Burt's Bees Replenishing LipBalm with Pomegranate Oil Im a lipbalm fanatic so when I find a 100% natural lipbalm that works for me I'm really happy and this one definitely works, It smells yummy and stops my lips peeling which they often do when its cold.

Sephora Eyeshadow Pallet 4 I pretty much use this pallet for everything, Eyeliner, Eyebrows, Contouring and of course as an eyeshadow, nude pallets are a must for everyones make up kit and I like this one so much because its not to big so it fits in my bag and I can take it with me. Also because it was part of a prezzie from my boyfriend when he came back from holiday and in London we don't have a Sephora. 

Lancome Advanced Genifique has become a part of my skincare routine and I like it because I actually feel like its doing something I skin feels firmer and more hydrated since i've started using it and because its such a simple step it doesn't feel like a chore or an added part of my routine the bottle is also self loading so you get the perfect amount each time which is so handy.

Lush Dirty Shower Gel has become one of my favourite shower gels because I am not a morning person but the smell of this Shower gel wakes me up in the morning it smells like spearmint and is so refreshing it wakes me up.

Illamasqua Translucent Loose Powder has been my go to finishing powder recently, I have a few that I like but I think this one will always be my first love because it doesn't change the colour of my foundation in any way where as other powders that are coloured darken my foundation or make me go a redish colour which I don't like. 

Illamasqua Blush Up Brush Is my favourite make up tool this month it makes applying blush and contouring so easy and because its so soft I figured I'd try using it to apply my foundation and it gave me a flawless finish I was so impressed, because it has sharp edges i found that it applied my foundation so much better than a stippling brush or a foundation brush.

What are some of your favourite products this month?
