February Favourites

It's that time of month again, favourites time! 
I have tried a lot of new products this month and I have really found some that I have been loving, also a few golden oldies!


Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
I have been loving this since I got it in my Yule Monty set. It is the perfect wash for waking you up in the morning, with the good enough to eat, limey, zesty scent. I actually think this smells a lot like cola cubes, you know those little cola sweets you get in pic 'n' mix. This wash is very conditioning and leaves skin feeling super soft and silky.  It leaves me feeling alive and fresh as a daisy, ready to conquer the day.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer
I bought this, this month and have been loving using it. I have already wrote a blog post about this highlighter that you can read here, Mary-Lou Manizer
This is the perfect golden, champagne shimmer to give you a bit of a glow on a dull day. It is very pigmented and you don't need a lot at all to give you a pretty shimmer.

Rimel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
I have always loved this foundation, but it has recently come out in a lighter shade "010 Light Porcelain". This shade is the perfect shade for me as the original lightest shade"Ivory" was a bit too orange for me which was the only thing that let this one down. This foundation is very long lasting (I'm not sure about 25 hours though, who needs to wear it for 25 hours, yucky!) It gives medium to full coverage and it is very build able.


Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
I recently purchased this on my quest to find the perfect skincare products. I have really enjoyed using this! I have normal/combination skin that is prone to the odd breakout. My skin has been out of control for the past few months, but since using this I have really noticed it calm down a lot! It does get rid of my make-up, although I do like to remove my make-up before cleansing to give my skin a deep clean. It does feel weird rubbing a balm that can feel a tad greasy/oily on my skin to try and clear it up, but it really has helped and hasn't made my skin greasy or oily at all! Don't be afraid to use a oily textured cleanser on your combination skin, it's probably what your skin is craving!

Origins Super Spot Remover
I also bought this on my quest to find the perfect skin care products, to clear up my troubled skin. I'm not sure if it's the cleanser that has completely helped or this has played a part, but I like to think it has. I use this twice a day on any problem areas. I do think that it has helped my skin look less "angry" and irritated. This really does help to calm and slowly remove spots.

Maybelline Color Tattoo On and On Bronze
I've been feeling rather lazy lately when it comes to eye make-up and this is great for these days! I love to apply this gorgeous bronze colour to the lid using my ring finger, then maybe added a lil highlight in the corners and a crease shade and I'm good to go. You really don't need to put too much effort in to create a gorgeous look with this one, it almost creates a whole eye look on its own!


Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Pink In Confidence
I'm one for a bright lip, but recently I have been loving the girly pinks including this one. I have mentioned this in my Everyday Pink Lips post you can see here for a more details, and also pics on the lips. This is a perfect nourishing, pale pink shade for everyday, that you can build up for a more dramatic look too. It's so versatile and a joy to use. Of course the packing is just beautiful and  makes it that extra bit more special when you whip it out to reapply. I love a moisturising lipstick that doesn't dry out the lips, so this is great for me! 

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
This has been a life saver, a holy grail product for thousands of beauty bloggers for years, but I have only just tried this out! I wish I tried it sooner, I can see why everyone loves this. It gives that little bit of extra coverage you want whilst setting your foundation, whilst controlling shine. For the price, you really need to try this out, you cant go wrong!

OPI Avojuice Mango Hand & Body Lotion
For valentines day, my lovely boyfriend booked me an appointment to get my nails done. Whilst I was having them done, I was eyeing up the hand lotions and couldn't wait to use this one. I wasn't disappointed when I gave it a go! First of all let me mention the scent, the scent is so gorgeous, good enough to eat! It really gets you ready for Spring/Summer and fruit cocktails and smoothies. The smell is also very long lasting and I am pleasantly welcomed by it throughout the day. It leaves hands and nails feeling healthy, moisturised and hydrated. As soon as I used this I checked on-line for where I could get this for myself. I ordered this little travel size bottle from Amazon, as its the perfect size to slip in your bag or pocket on the go. I am also going to purchase the full size bottle so I can top up and never be without my beloved Mango lotion!

I hope you have enjoyed reading my February favourites.
