Current Favourites

Some current favourites

Oh what a pink post this will be – not intentional. These are a few products I have been using alot the past few weeks. I must be feeling pretty in pink.

L’Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution £4.99 for 200ml

I bought this when it was better than half price in Superdrug a while back and really like it at a pre cleanse solution to take of the majority of my makeup. The packaging is really nice and has a great opening and only lets a little product out at once, so I’m not wasting any. I normally shake out far to much of these waters and go through them so fast but this L’Oreal Micellar Water packaging is well designed and it has been lasting me a long time.

It contains no alcohol or parabens so this doesn’t leave my skin dry or feeling tight. It is really good at removing my mascara & I have to say it works well to remove even waterproof mascara! This micellar water is handy to have and I will be repurchasing it once it runs out.

Garnier Roll On Anti Dark Circles 15ml for £10.19

I use this before my concealer and really like how it evens out my undereye and adds extra coverage. It is quite a thin formulation and I like it. I leave it on my skin for about a minute before patting it in with my finger. I find this lets the product warm up a little and is easier to blend in. On a day where I’m wearing little makeup I would just sweep a little of this along my under eye area and wear it alone. It provides quite a good coverage. This has lasted me almost a year which is such a long time, I’m impressed. This is so easy to apply and is just handy to have in my collection. I have the shade meduim.

Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in the shade L.A £4.79

This is a pretty glossy light pink shade, very easy to apply and the packaging has a mirror in to which is so handy! Very cute idea. It gives your lips a wash of colour without being too intense, so they’re great for me. This is the only seventeen lipstick I own and will be popping back in for more shades as I love the formula, it is very creamy and hydrating although its not super long lasting but I don’t mind that. If you have any colour recommendations let me know.

A few favourite products

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief - This is a gel like consistency which is oil free, it provides good hydration and is soothing on the skin. I find it cooling too so it calms my skin. It works well as a base for makeup and I find no need to use a separate primer as this cream leaves my face smooth. It is very light and absorbs well but takes a few minutes to fully sink in. If you’re looking for a hydrating day cream that is good for oily skin then I recommend trying this one.

Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher in Scandal

I am so into baked products at the moment & bought a load from elf recently, I’ve had this one for a couple of years now and it hardly looks like it’s been used. This Accessorize blush is a pretty rose gold with light golden shimmery veins running through. It gives me a nice flush of colour and is buildable. The packaging is lovely and girly and you get alot of product too. This is one of my favourite blushes and I’m so happy to have rediscovered it.

balance Me rose otto handcream100ml £14.50

I have a handcream on my desk at all times, as I suffer from really dry skin and this balance Me one not only smells fresh and floral but it is very hydrating too. You get a 100ml of product in this tube and it is lasting me ages. I like to take my time and massage this into my hands, it leaves them so soft and not greasy at all. It soaks right in to my skin and gets working keeping them silky soft. Perfect for the winter months.

What have you been loving at the moment?

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.

    I love the L’Oreal micellar water, such a great budget alternative for Bioderma! The dark circle roll on looks great too, just what I’m needing for these horrible dark mornings!

    I really want to try the L’Oreal micellar water but its not available in the US. I just used up my Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Toner and I’m sad to come to the end of it.
