October Favourites!

by - November 10, 2017

It feels like forever since I let you guys know what I've been loving so that's exactly what I'm going to do! I can't remember if I've included any of these products before so if I have I'm really sorry but they were too good not to include!

This body lotion was originally released in the 2016 Christmas range but everyone loved it so much that it was brought back in the end of summer! I didn't want to use mine until I knew I would be able to get another one so I was beyond excited when it was announced! It has a really relaxing scent of lavender and gingerbread which is perfect for this time of year as it's getting closer and closer to Christmas! I'd never really tried any of Lush's body lotions before this one and it absolutely smashed by expectations. It's really creamy and moisturising but it isn't sticky or greasy and sinks in almost immediately! This comes in the standard 95g (£7.95) and 215g (£13.95) - I have the 95g and it's lasted me ages!

Next up we have the Garnier Micellar oil-infused cleansing water, I have been absolutely loving using this when I need to take my make up off quickly, or to be completely honest can't be bothered to take my make up off! I usually use my Botanics hot cloth cleanser but this is a super quick alternative for me but it's still not bad for your skin! I have very dry skin so I find that sometimes the regular micellar waters can dry my face out if I use them too much but because this has the layer of oil that you shake in, it's really moisturising. It leaves a layer of moisture on your skin so sometimes I don't use my moisturiser alongside it because it can feel like my skin is blocked which I really don't like!

I did a review of this foundation so you'll know how much I love it but I really want to get into the nitty gritty of this product. I have the shade 1.5N and it's absolutely perfect for me - it's a complete "true match". I do find that I have to do 2 layers of my hydra genius moisturiser under this because it settles into pores and dry skin pretty quickly and I find that that really helps prevent it! I also love how nicely it blends in. I use my beauty blender and it's super easy - it literally only takes a few minutes. The only few complaints I have is that if you don't focus most of the blending under the eyes, the product does pull away a bit when you try and apply concealer but it just means a few more minutes blending!

An Instagram account I have been loving recently is Leah from @devotedtopink and I have been absolutely obsessed with Hannah's blog (www.hannahgale.com) so make sure you go and check them both out!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you all enjoyed this post and I will see you all again soon,
