Current Favourites

There have been a few products that have become firm favourites over the last couple of months so I felt the need to share!

Nivea Cleanser
First up, the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Cream Wash (£1.99). Earlier this year I was having issues with redness and nothing seemed to help, until I bought this product on a whim in Boots about a month ago. It is so creamy and feels really nice and hydrating. I kid you not, after one use of this I noticed a difference in the redness on my cheeks. I was so happy! This product definitely rescued my skin, and for £1.99 it doesn’t get much better! 

La Roche Posay
Another product I’ve found to help me out with my pesky red cheeks is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ (£15.50). I’ve been using this morning and night for just over a month now and I think it has definitely helped with left over redness from spots and my general cheek redness as well.

Pai Rosehip Oil
Next up we’ve got the Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil (£20.00). Everyone should have this in their lineup in my opinion, it’s so lovely. A couple of drops of this in the evening, massaged in. It makes my skin feel so much more hydrated and very soft.

Some make up products I’m really enjoying using right now are the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus Instant Flaw-Softening Illuminator (£11.00) and the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (£9.99). Hocus Focus gives a beautiful subtle glow. Having dry skin I need a product like this to add some radiance. You can apply it all over the face before foundation or you can just use it as a highlighter.
The Bourjois CC Cream is extremely hydrating, blends really well and is great for anyone with dry skin. It’s very build-able so you can go for a nice sheer coverage or build it up in areas that may need a little more help…like my pesky chin! I use the shade Ivory.

Barry M Nail Polish
Finally, the Barry M Hi-Shine Gel Effect Nail Polishes (£3.99) have been bringing a little bit of sunshine into my days recently! I picked up 3 of these at Boots with the 3 for 2 deal. I love the pastel colours and I also really wanted a nice nude colour, so I bought ‘Huckleberry’, ‘Rose Hip’, and ‘Lychee’. I’m nuts about the colours and the formula is great too!


So those are all my current favourites. As you can see, other than the Pai Rosehip Oil the rest are all drugstore purchases. As much as I would love to buy some high-end products, I can’t at the moment (so says my bank account!) so I’m grateful for the good quality products the drugstore brands keep producing! Do you use any of the things I’ve mentioned? What are some items you’re loving at the moment? Let me know!

Feeling Blue

Barry M Blue Moon Bourjois Blue No Blues

I’ve been all about the blue nail polish recently.  This first one is Bourjois Blue No Blues which is a bright turquoise blue that is sure to brighten up any rainy Autumn day!  The brush for this polish is the best I’ve ever used.  It’s a fan brush and your whole nail is covered after literally one swipe.  I still do two coats but it takes about two minutes to do both hands!  I wish every nail polish came with this brush because it’s seriously brilliant.

The next colour I just purchased is the Barry M Blue Moon.   I saw the always beautiful Lily Pepples wearing it recently and knew it had to be mine!  This colour is a stunning dusty blue that is a pastel lovers dream.  The consistency of the polish is very thin and sheer so taking a tip from Lily I did three coats to get this look.  It’s such a gorgeous and unique colour!

Also, on a random note….Isabel Marant for H&M was released today!  I couldn’t even get onto the H&M website this morning to have a browse (probably a good thing) as there is a queue!  It’s said to be one of the best collaborations H&M have ever done so if you managed to pick up any items good job and congrats!!!
