Day two of #blogmas is a post dedicated to my most loved items throughout November!
My favourite products this month are a mixture of makeup, bath & body and skincare. I’ve not really bought many new beauty products for months now, simply because firstly, I don’t need anymore and secondly I stopped being so frivolous when Dom & I decided to buy a house together. It’s a huge step for us, but something we are SO excited about & I can’t wait to document our journey on my blog. We’ve had a bit of bad luck with the process so far, with our dream house being sold right in front of our eyes but that’s okay, it’s all a learning game & hopefully something better will come along!
Anyway, that’s not what this post is all about, my first favourite is LUSH Snow Fairy Shower Gel of course! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now then you’ll know I’m pretty obsessed with this stuff. I can’t resist the sweet candy scent that lingers in the bathroom & on your skin for ages after using it!
I ran out of my Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Moisturiser so had a hunt around in my collection & I've been using the Creighton's Squeaky Clean Body Better Body Lotion* to keep my skin soft & hydrated. I'm usually a big fan of cocoa butter & vanilla scents but this one has a fresh clean smell, similar to baby powder & it's a thin formula so theres no waiting around for it to soak in.
The only new beauty purchase of the month was a foundation, Rimmel have added another one to their product range & I've been meaning to test it out for a while! Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation is formulated to last all day without being a thick and cakey. I seriously love this foundation so so much, my work hours are long & whilst I've not worn it for 25 hours I can confirm it lasts the whole day for me without requiring touch ups. It makes my skin look smooth, covers most imperfections & blends in really easily. Rimmel are a firm favourite of mine when it comes to drugstore foundations!
This months issue of Glamour Magazine had a free Nails Inc Polish, I chose 'Marylebone Mews' a lilac grey shade. It's a really chic looking colour & is super chip resistant, I wore it for 8 days without a single chip occurring which is kind of a miracle considering I spend most of my life working in retail or tapping away on my keyboard! The finish of this polish reminds me of a gel manicure, it's so shiny & looks as though I've had a professional do my nails, I'm terrible at painting nails so this polish really is a miracle worker haha.
I'm so impressed with how good it makes my nails look when I wear it! (excuse the pug hair all over my scarf...)
When I attended the Lush Blogger Event at the beginning of November, Dani gave me some skin care advice & provided me with a few little samples to take home with me. I've really been suffering with my skin recently, along with it being dull & tired looking I've also had quite bad breakouts. One of the products I've been using is the Dark Angels Cleanser to give my skin a good scrub to waken it up basically! It's filled with black sugar, charcoal & rhassoul mud to exfoliate & cleanse the skin but it also contains avocado oil & vegetable glycerine which soften & moisturise the skin after scrubbing. I've used this quite a lot but still got loads left, a tiny pea sized amount is all thats needed as you add water to it which turns it to a paste that can be applied all over your face. It smells really natural & feels like it's fixing my skin, as my skin feels so much better after I use it!
Last but definitely not least is the Makeup Revolution One Blush Stick in 'Rush'*, the rose gold blush thats almost certainly a dupe for Nars Orgasm! I haven't used any other blush product since receiving these, I love the shimmery finish & the colour really suits my complexion, in fact I think it would suit anybody!
