This month has been a bit boring for me, I havnt been buying any cosmetics since my birthday… but I see the newest trend is ‘shopping your own stash’ so I am happy enough with that! It saves me money too… were saving up to buy a dog!
I have a few favourites which have been treating me very well the past while and some I would definitely repurchase.
Liz Earle Moisturiser for Normal/Combination skin
I have yet to find a moisturiser that I like better than this one. I still consider myself a bit of a ‘noob’ when it comes to skincare, but this one has really taken care of my skin. Now that it is Winter I have to use more of this, but that’s no problem to me as it glides on effortlessly. It can feel a little oily so putting make up on over this is a must for me. I never really do ‘no make up days’ (you never know who’s going to call at the door). I may not buy this again right away as I have my Origins moisturiser to use… I just hope its good!
Liz Earle Superskin Body Cream
You can read my review on this here. Very heavy, thick and extremely moisturising… just perfect for me!
Trilogy Cream Cleanser
I wont go into too much detail here, because this really deserves a full review. But my skin has never looked so clean and even!
Nars Sheer Glow – Santa Fe
Still my favourite foundation, best applied with fingers and layered lightly, this gives me such glowy skin. I look so much healthier when I wear this!
Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil
An amazing oil, I have been using this for well over a month now and I love mixing it with my moisturiser. A full review to come!
MAC Lipstick – Syrup
This is my “go to” lip colour when I cant decide what to wear. It looks great with and without a tan and it is my favourite Lustre finish.
My two regrets for this month are:
Clinique All about Eyes
Seriously, I have never used such a bad eye cream… it doesn’t de-puff me, doesn’t get rid of dark circles and it seeps into my eye making it bloodshot and makes my vision cloudy. I talked to the girl at Clinique and she was saying I was just applying it too close to my lash line… but no… I tried not putting it anywhere near there and it still happened!! I have another sample of this and an All About Eyes Rich to use as well… but to be honest I will give them away. They are ridiculous.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Protector
Rubbish… This never lasts on my lips, every time I use it my lips get more and more chapped and its going down way too quick for my liking. Simply dont like it…
