May Favourites

01 June 2014



I cant believe its June already! Its an exciting month for me as I'm going on a girls holiday at the end of the month woohoo i cant wait, unfortunately this means putting my organizational skills to the test to try and get posts planned, written and scheduled before then! Anyway i didn't do a favorites post last month i don't think i had many new favorites i wanted to rave about however this month i do. Some are new to the blog some i've blogged about but all i have been loving using this past month.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water-
I have been using Michellar waters to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin at night now for about eighteen months. I started off using Bioderma which i used religiously until some of the highstreet beauty brands started to bring out their own versions. As much as i loved Bioderma is was a royal pain in my behind to get hold off so i decided to try a different one. I've tried the L'oreal and Garnier versions and to be honest i don't see a lot of difference in either both are good, the only reason i've stuck with the Garnier one is it seems better value for money. You get 400ml of product which will last you months and its a very reasonable price, i actually picked up my latest bottle on offer in Superdrug for under £4 which is just amazing.

V05 Plump it up Dry Backcombing Spray-
I am useless at actually backcombing my hair i just end up with a very knotty mess and most definitely not the volumous Cheryl Cole esque hair I'm after so i thought i would see if i could find a product to do it for me. I picked up the V05 Backcombing Spray and I'm really enjoying using it, you just shake and spray it onto the hair and it really does give a nice boost. Its my roots that i have a problem with my hair is fine and sits so flat but this gives a nice bit of volume and its so easy to use.

Soap&Glory One Heck Of A Blot-
I reviewed this product a few weeks back and am happy to report Im loving still loving it very much which is why its made the favorites post. It sets my makeup really well so well in-fact that i've noticed i don't need to touch up during the day as much. The only small thing that concerns me is i've actually hit pan already, only slightly in the middle but i am interested to see how much longer it will last as my Rimmel Stay Matte used to last a fair few months.

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosenip Oil-
I tend to use this oil quite on and off, i like to use it when my skins been breaking out as its great to slather on at night to heal and reduce any scarring or marks. As me skin had been clear for a while i had not been using it but lately my skins started breaking out again so i brought this little beauty back out.  I've been applying a few drops to my face at night and gentle rubbing it in, in the morning my skin always looks fresh, bright and nourished.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream-
This seems to have become my new day base of choice, since i bought it this is pretty much all i wear at work and on days off when i don't want a full made up look i reach for this too. Its so light on the skin, the colour match is great for me and it gives a decent amount of coverage exactly what i want.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush-
This is the first time i've featured a makeup brush in my favorites, however i really do feel it deserves it. I use the Expert face brush to apply my foundations and sometimes also my concealer. Its quite a firm brush which is incredibly soft which makes it great for applying and blending foundations. I find this blends the foundation so well and leaves the skin with an amazing finish, i really so love it.

Bourjois Little Pot Blush Rose de Jaspe-
This month this has become my new everyday blush, my poor Sleek Rose Gold blush hasn't had a look in. The beautiful rose colour is so flattering and goes well with all makeup looks, and the subtle hint of shimmer also looks so pretty.

So that was my May favorites, what have you been loving lately?
