My May beauty favourites!

Sunday, June 05, 2016

Today, I decided to share with you a few beauty products I enjoyed using last month. 

1. L'Oréal Skin Perfection Micellar Water.

I am constantly discussing my problem skin and the fact I used to suffer badly with spot-prone skin. However, if I am honest, I am guilty of getting home late at night and grabbing a face wipe to remove my make-up, for no other reason than the quick and convenient aspect of it. All I want to do after a late night is crawl into bed, but, I also choose to grab a wipe to avoid waking up to make-up under my eyes or even worse, across my pillow. Anyway, after seeing this product in a few magazines and a friends recommendation, I decided I would give it a try! Although I am SO late to the party, I am so glad I did! I chose the L'Oréal  product, over many others in the market, because it is hypo-allergenic and doesn't contain any alcohol. I have found it very easy to remove my make up and it leaves my skin feeling silky smooth, there isn't any tightness that I have previously found with other make-up removing products.

This Micellar Water does claim to unblock pores and tone but I purely use this to remove my make-up and continue to use my go-to cleanser and toner in addition. 

2. Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. 

I know this has been around for a long time now, but I have only been using it for the past few weeks.  Of course, the taste for me was a motivational factor, I don't think you can beat the smell of bubblegum! Seriously though, my lips have been very dry for a while now, despite using regular lip balms. I have found using this scrub before the application of lip balm has really helped, my dry patches have been removed and it creates the perfect base for applying lipstick or balm.

3. Revlon Lotus Flower All in One Hair Treatment*. 

When it comes to hair treatments, I am always willing to try out different products. I often vary between different companies and different price ranges as I have found that expensive products do not guarantee the best result, and of course, everyones hair is different. I am sure I can speak for us ladies in saying that if we can save money and still get terrific results we will aim to do so!

This product claims to repair dry and damaged hair, protect from heat and protect coloured hair with UVA and UVB filters. Crazy, I know, is there anything it can't do?! After washing my hair I sprayed the product directly onto my hair and then combed through and blow-dried as normal. I have to say, my hair did seem somewhat easier to comb through, something that is usually a bit of a nightmare as my hair is very fine but there is lots of it, and it appeared softer in texture.

I also used on dry hair prior to straightening and again it appeared to look, and feel softer. I also had a noticeable shine so, all in all I will continue to use this product. 

4. AYVA Make-Up Brush*.

"Densely packed with over 100,000 animal free, ultra fine bristles for that flawless application with an airbrush look. " 

AYVA are a UK based company having recently launched their first product, the AO6 brush, ideal for foundation and concealer. Upon application it felt a little odd at first as I hadn't used a product of this type before. I used to always rely on my beauty blender for foundation application but I am a big believer of trying new things! Once I had got used to what movements and motions to use to apply ,(circular and sweeping) I am amazed at the finish look. It creates a completely even look and takes half the time to apply! 

5. Girls With Attitude Eyeshadow Palette*. 

Finally, my current fave eyeshadow palette by the babes at Girls with Attitude! I am a big lover of nude and neutral colours, particularly as I have big brown eyes and so I was very excited to receive this. I am particularly loving how pigmented every shade is and the texture is incredibly soft and silky on the eye. Admittedly, I have been a little useless at blending in the past but this palette appears to blend in perfectly! I have actually used this everyday since I received it and have found that a little definitely goes a long way, so don't worry about it running out within a week! 

Thanks for reading!
