So this is a first for me. I thought I’d share what products I was loving over the last month.
1. Make Up Revolution Pro Looks Palette in Stripped & Bare
I’ve been familiar with Make Up Revolution, have seen them around and have owned a few items from them in the past. But it wasn’t until I started looking more into blogging that I discovered just how amazing they are as a brand and clearly a bloggers favourite.
One of the recent items I picked up was the Stripped & Bare Palette. Originally launched with 2 other limited collections – Big Love and Sleep, Makeup, Repeat. Each palette contains 3 collections made up of 5 eyeshadows to help you create your own looks. I’ve been mainly using 2 of the 3 palettes as it’s a touch to light for me but they’ve been great for my days and nights out and at just £6 you can’t go wrong with these beauties.
2. Soap and Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter
I love a good lathering up in the shower, but it’s just gotten a whole lot more fun thanks to Soap & Glory. This shower butter was part of the Hattie Stewart Gift Box I treated myself to at Christmas from Boots.
The label describes it as a luxe shower cream and it really is truly indulgent in every way. It’s thicker than the average body cream in consistency but the minute you start putting it on your skin, you are instantly teased with the beautiful smells of Almonds and Macadamia, I can only liken it to cookies or fresh baking. I’ve always said a girls should smell edible, well Soap and glory can deliver on that front. At £7 I’d say very reasonable considering how gorgeous the product is. I absolutely love this wash which I’m sadly coming to the end of, but you can guarantee I’ll be popping to Boots and making a purchase of this gorgeous cream!
3. Cow Shed Anti Ageing Night Serum
The serum is more of an oil but it is extremely light and sinks into the skin immediately. Before this I was using Clarins rebalancing oil, so if you’re familiar with their oils, I can confirm Cowshed’s is much lighter in texture. The scent is to just beautiful. I can’t put my finger on the scent itself, but it feels somewhat familiar. It’s perfect for bedtime as it’s soothing, relaxing and just so great for your skin.
After a good nights sleep my skin feels and looks so much better. As a member of the combination/oily club I’d highly recommend as it really does balance the skin and I noticed within the week I had less shine during the course of my make up day!
As I’m verging close to requiring anti ageing products I figured this would be perfect to ease me in. Cowshed state that the serum targets all anti-ageing concerns including helping to increase cell renewal, firms and plump the skin, improve tone, texture and elasticity, balances oil production, and and much more. It’s also suitable for those with sensitive skin.
At £48 it is one of the more expensive products I have purchased but I would have to say it has been one the best investments I’ve made. It comes in a pump action bottle, which delivers the smallest amount of serum per shot but enough to use for your evening beauty routine.
4. Herbal Teas
Since starting my food combining, I’ve taken to having tea again. A new tea I discovered recently whilst perusing the aisles in Sainsburys was Pukka Womankind. Designed to help women balance and bloom, it’s flavoured with Cranberry, Rose and Vanilla. A light and delicious flavour tea which I love to have in the afternoon whilst working away.
I’m quite the night owl and often suffer insomnia, thanks to Clipper Snore & Peace, those nights are now far and few. I kid you not, I’ve had meds that have taken longer to put me to sleep. I’ve been drinking this tea since last year and just love it. I’m asleep within a good hour of drinking.
A mixture of chamomile, lemon balm and lavender make the perfect little cocktail to to gently ease you into slumberland!
5. Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner
This is hands down my most used, recommended and loved product. Whilst the sun is shining so beautifully outside, that wind is there to remind us that we are still in winter and with that comes danger to your pretty lips.
I use this little pot of goodness all day everyday. I especially love putting it on at bedtime and wake up with soft, supple lips ready to kiss my boys!
Have you tried any of these products before? What’s been your February favourites? I’d love to hear from you.
