September & October Favourites

Hello everyone! It's favourites time again! I didn't do one last month because I didn't really feel like I was using anything new, so I hope 2 months merged into one is ok with you all?! As Christmas is fast approaching, I don't know if I'll be buying much else for myself from now until then, but if you have anything you've been absolutely loving then do let me know! I do love trying new things! :)

Bath & Body Works Hawaii Passionfruit Kiss Ultra Shea Body Cream -
Yes, I'm here again babbling on about my undying love for B&BW and how much I wish they existed in the UK! I've been using this stuff ever since my lovely Watermelon Lemonade Hand Cream ran out.

In all honesty, before that, regardless of how much I enjoyed the smell of it - I did push it to the back of the cupboard for a while. I now use this every single day and it's brilliant. It claims to be 24 hour moisturiser, although I do find I have to apply it a few times a day because I have to constantly wash my hands. Even though this isn't a hand cream as such, is does the job just as well!

Soap & Glory 'One Heck Of A Blot' All Day Liquid-To-Powder Foundation in Cool Sand
This is so wonderful. I love that it isn't really on the pricier side of foundations and it literally does everything it claims on the bottle, without the designer price. I won't go on too much about it because I recently reviewed it in a separate post (which you can find hereThis foundation is great for combination-to-oily skin, as it leaves your face matte all day long, reduces pores, redness or any fine lines and provides a perfect full coverage.

Garnier Pure Active Matte Control Moisturiser here- I bought this the other day and I have to say I'm already seeing results. Due to the nature of my skin, I struggle to combat the shine on my T-Zone a lot of the time. This smells absolutely incredible and it really does do its job. Another plus side is that I now no longer glow like a McDonalds chip. Woop. I was previously using Garnier Moisture Matte + which kept my skin at bay for a while but not for the whole day. This is more focused on oily areas of the face and it works a treat - there's no way I'll be using anything else for a good while now!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge here- Yet again, I am ridiculously late to jump on the bandwagon of beauty blenders, so I had to snap this up when I saw it in Superdrug for £5.99! I had been told about these vaguely in Sephora when I went to America earlier this year, but never really delved into the idea as I almost passed out at the thought of $20 for a sponge. However, I started to become more intrigued when lots of other bloggers started raving about how great they were.

I didn't like it to start with because I was using it oh so wrong and dragging it along my face, as opposed to dabbing in said make-up. So it quite rightly did not leave a nice finish at all. I use this to blend in my concealer, as personally I find it a lot less harsh than a brush, particularly on the more sensitive sections of my face. The only downfall I have with this, is that it's very delicate to clean and mine has a rip in it where I was too rough with it. Oops? I would like to try some different ones after this has had its time, but for now it's one of my make-up bag staples!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 477 Black Cherry - With Autumn getting into full swing, another berry coloured lipstick was destined to find its way into my collection somehow! What is it with bloggers and seasonal lipsticks?! I've taken a great liking to Revlon quite recently, as I never really checked them out before.

This lipstick is quite a severe colour, so not one for someone who plays it safe with lipstick! It comes out a very dark, vampy purple/red colour and leaves a nice moisturising finish. The stay power is pretty good for your average drugstore lipstick and had a nice pigment of colour in it. If you can, I'd definitely urge you to exfoliate your lips before you apply this as it can show any marks or bits of dry skin you may have. I'd also strongly recommend you use a lip liner, as this can get very messy and if you're not careful it can spill out of your lips!

Palmers Coconut Oil Formula Conditioning Shampoo here - Ever since I had my hair bleached a while back, my hair hasn't really been my BFF. With that being said, I am more than willing to spend a little more on hair care than I normally would. To be honest, I have come to realise over the last year that my appearance is actually really important and sometimes it does pay to feel/look good (unless I'm slobbing at home in my PJ's of course!).

I am more than happy to spend a little more than normal on things that I know will work, and coconut oil is basically a holy grail ingredient to anything that needs a bit of nourishment and moisture. I found this on Feel Unique and I wasn't aware that Palmers did any coconut oil hair care products, I'd only ever been familiar with the cocoa butter body care bits on the shelves.

The shampoo lathers up really well and gives my hair such great shine and condition. It's thick but not too thick, which is fab because there's nothing I hate more than a shampoo which doesn't bubble up well and you have to use pretty much half of the bottle in one wash! It's really affordable too at £3.99, so it's a pretty big saving in comparison to the £6.99 I was paying for OGX stuff. This is definitely one to add to the hair care routine!

What have your favourites been over the last 2 months? :)

  1. Palmer's is an amazing brand, I use their moisturizer and body scrub daily and it's incredible as I have such dry skin! I didn't even know that they had a hair care range! Will definitely have to see if I can get my hands on it! I am absolutely in love with my real techniques sponge, it's such a good beauty blender dupe for less than half the cost, such a winner! Great picks and love your blog! xx

    1. Aww, thank you so much! That's so sweet of you to say :) Yes their stuff really is amazing for dry skin! I've used their stuff since I was about 13 and have only just become aware of the hair care range! I know they're slowly bringing them into some Superdrug stores, so definitely keep an eye out- they're so worth it and affordable too! :)
