September Favourites




Garnier Ambre Solaire Golden Protect Lotion SPF 30: Although this is a bit of an irrelevant favourite now as I doubt we'll be getting any sun until next year I really enjoyed using this on holiday at the beginning of the month. It gives the skin a subtle shimmering glow that makes your tan (or lack of in my case) look all the better.

L'Oreal Kids Sweet Pear Tangle Tamer: A bit of a random favourite but this stuff really works! It reduces brushing time by half and smells absolutely divine. Bringing back all those childhood memories!

Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo: This shampoo is literally made up of gritty chunks of salt that dissolve into the hair while the product laters up, giving the scalp a nice bit of exfoliation and also leaving an amazing amount of volume and bounce.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: This appeared in my lasts months favourites but I can't help it, I'm in love. I haven't even reached for another foundation since the bringing of August which for someone with a stash like mine is a very big deal! Beautiful full coverage whilst still feeling soft and lightweight on the skin and leaving a gorgeous glow.

Collection Cream Puff In Fairy Cake: I don't really wear a lot on my lips other than reds but recently I've been getting a bit more into colour. I love the formula of these and wish they did more than five colours! They apply like a lipgloss but with a matte texture and give that same amount of colour as a lipstick. This colour is a warm coral toned pink which I've been wearing practically everyday.

Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipstick in Pleasure Me Red: I'm starting to get into those deep Autumn reds and this one has proven to be my favourite so far. I'm surprised at the quality actually as it's only Maybelline but it's so pigmented and extra moisturising.

MAC Harmony Blush: My go to brozing/contour colour at the minute. It's perfect for those with fair skins like me as it's quite a cool toned taupe colour but still gives that warm look without being orange at all.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow in Eternal Gold: I bought this back when the Colour Tattoo eyeshadows were quite big but forgot about it almost right away. I took it on holiday with me though for a quick and easy eyeshadow that would stay on well in the heat but I've been using it all month too. I love using this on it's own with just a few coats of mascara for a natural but brightened eye.

Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil: I've been loving this new dry oil spray from Garnier which leaves my skin feeling so plumped up and nourished, great for the cold winter months when my skin becomes unbearably dehydrated!

Lush King of Skin Body Butter: Another body product I've been using religiously. This is a solid body butter that you rub into your skin (like a bar of soap) after a bath or shower before you dry yourself off. It smoothes on to the skin so quickly and is a really easy way of getting an intense body treatment without having to rub in a lotion then waddle waiting for it to dry for ten minutes. Just apply, pat dry and you're done with this one.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Rose and Lavender Special Edition: My all time favourite cleanser has had a make over. I wasn't sure I wanted to buy this as I love the original so much but I'm glad I did. The scent isn't too different, it's still very herbal and botanical, but you can really smell the lavender in it, something which I don't usually like at all. I've found though that combined with the Rose fragrance makes it very refreshing and calming.

Prada Candy Eau de Parfum: This is the only perfume I've found myself reaching for this month. It's sweet but warm and makes feel oh-so cosy when I wear it.
