I’ve got quite a few favourites this month, I’ve been quite boring this month and have used a lot of the same products all month, I’ve been trying to save myself some time getting ready and go for a lighter look. I’ve changed my skincare quite a lot recently, I’m still using mainly natural products aimed at sensitive skin, but less less aimed at oily and acne prone skin. My skin has cleared up a lot recently and I feel like it needs a bit more moisture.

Like most bloggers I have been loving the Caudalie Beauty Elixir I keep the travel size in my bag and the full size on my dresser, I love the smell, and find it really refreshing on my skin. I’ve been hunting for the perfect cleanser to use with my Clarisonic, and the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser is pretty close, I got this sample in a Glossybox, and didn’t like it at first, but when paired with the Clarisonic it works amazingly well, the texture is perfect it isn’t so thick that it is hard to use, or so thin that it just disappears into the brush, I will be buying the full size! I’ve reviewed the REN Glycolatic Radiance Renewal Mask here, so I won’t go on about it again!

The The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter has been my moisturiser of choice this month, and I’d happily smell it all day, it smells amazing. Just go to the Body Shop sniff a tub and you’ll understand my obsession!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is still my base of choice, it just works and lasts so well for me that I just don’t feel the need to use anything else. If you can find a colour match I would really recommend this. I use NARS Pro Prime Multi Protect Primer SPF 30 as my primer and SPF, it has a light formula, perfect if you don’t enjoy silicone heavy products. Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF15 is a new favourite of mine, it sets my foundation without being too heavy and gives a nice soft glow. I’ve been keeping eyes and lips simple using Revlon Lip Butter Berry Smoothie almost daily, and MAC’s Shroom and Wedge for a daytime eye look. I then use Dior Amber Diamond Highlighter to highlight my cheekbones.

What products have you been loving lately?


  1. Such lovely favourites you have this month. I'm hoping to try that REN mask soon and I'm hoping to give a Laura Mercier product a go. I just can't decide on what to try. :p x

  2. I've just recently got the Bourjois healthy mix gel serum foundation and I am loving it! xo
