Having not written any favourites for a good few months now I thought it was about time I rectify that. I thought I’d do things slightly differently and have decided to do a mid-month favourites as opposed to and end-of-month favourites. They will be mainly beauty favourites, but possibly with the odd other favourite
First up is an oil burner and rose oil I got as part of my Valentines present, and one I haven’t stopped using since use. I’ve never had an oil burner before but remember how well the smell filled the room when I worked at The Body Shop and this one doesn’t fail to impress. I love using it with the rose oil. the smell does instantly fill the room and lasts for hours on end. A definite favourite of mine this past month.
Next up is my MAC duo palette
from my recent haul, including the shades Beautiful Iris
. I love using Beautiful Iris, the purple colour, to brighten up my eyes. It doesn’t give the biggest colour payoff without being coated a couple of times but it’s worth the effort for the finished result. The darker red shade, Cranberry, works surpirsingly well alongside – I’ve been using this either to create a smoky look or just along my crease.
The Bleach Blonde Silver shampoo
is next on my favourites. I love how much of a difference this makes to my hair; it is instantly brighter after using this and has definitely been a big favourite of mine. Blonde hair fades, this has helped reverse that; I think any girl who has blonde hair should give it a go.
The Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge
is another product I have been loving, a product I’ve barely touched since purchasing but has been a lifesaver in recent weeks. For some reason my skin has decided it doesn’t like a brush being used to apply foundation and not blending particulaly well so I thought I’d give the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge a little go and haven’t looked back. Once popped in water to expand it seems to create the most flawless finish blending everything perfectly. I’m sure I will go back to using a brush but I am so glad I discovered how good this sponge is.
Ahh, the Rose Jam shower gel from Lush is amazing. Yes, another rose product this month (it’s my new favourite body product scent). I love how soft this leaves my skin feeling and is one I’ve been using nearly every shower/bath. I have actually finished the bottle now but I have to say I’m impressed, I defnitely need to try more of their shower gels. Besides, whenever I use a Lush product the whole flat ends up smelling of Lush, doesn’t everyone want that?
Next is the Indian Night Jamsine EDT from The Body Shop; a favourite of mine last summer has made it back into my favourites. I love this smell; I’d describe it as an evening sensual smell that’s fairly strong. The smell also lasts all day when used.
My last favourite is more of a lifestyle one; my yoga mat. I have been watching yoga videos a lot recently and have been loving using this to follow the routines. It means I don’t have to break my back on the hard floor either so a win win and favourite for me.
And, we’re done… if you managed to read all that you deserve a chocolate gold medal. That’s my favourites for the month; have you used any of the products I mentioned? What have you been loving lately?
