Thursday 5 December 2013

It's the 5th December already, where has this year gone?! It seems to have flown by! Anyway, here are my 5 favourites for November (featuring mostly skincare products and a couple of other bits). I've mentioned all of these on my blog before in haul/spotlight posts!

The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Body Lotion - found here

I featured this body lotion on a haul post a few weeks back and it has quickly become one of my favourite scents. I use the White Musk perfume in another scent, and I think this is a lot newer than that one, but I love this one already. It's very musky and smells amazing! I keep smelling myself whenever I wear it because it smells that good. The Body Shop's website describes it as a 'blend of cruelty-free musk, tobacco flower and notes of black rose.' It leaves my skin feeling amazing and is definitely worth the £10 pricetag.

Essie Nail Polish in Chinchilly 

This nail polish came in an Essie nail set (Favourites to Fall For), I can't seem to find it on the Boots website, and it's sold out on Superdrug's website, but it's £7.99. Apparently, according to Superdrug, it was a breakthrough shade because it was the first true greige - that might mean more to you than it does to me! It's just a really nice shade, I don't usually go for shades like this but it is very sophisticated!

Soap & Glory For Daily Youth Foamy Moisture Face Wash - found here

You will have seen this in my 'Spotlight' post for Soap & Glory. I've been using it for over a month now and it is truly amazing! I wanted to use it for quite a while before I shared my opinion on it. My skin has improved so much since I've been using it - it's clearer and less oily. It's £9 which is quite expensive for a face wash but I now know it's totally worth the money.

Natural Collection Pressed Powder - found here

I've mentioned my oily skin on here before and discovered that pressed powders are pretty good at combating excess oil. Natural Collection is slowly becoming a favourite brand of mine because it is so affordable! Most of their cosmetics are £1.99 (maybe it's all of their products but I'm not quite sure). I apply this powder with a standard kabuki brush from Superdrug. My face stops looking so greasy at work, which is a massive improvement!

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Moisturiser - found here

I was getting bored of my moisturiser because it didn't seem to be doing anything for my skin. I wanted an oil free moisturiser with a nice smell and that's where Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit range came in! It doesn't clog my pores at all, which is a massive bonus considering I suffer from adult acne (although not that badly anymore). This, paired with the S&G face wash, has left my skin feeling so much better during these bitter cold months. It's good value for money at £4.99, I cannot recommend enough!

much love,
