It’s that time of the month again where I round up all of the beauty must-haves I’ve been reaching for during the last 4 weeks. It’s mainly about skincare this month and a few of them have been beauty lifesavers when my skin has needed a little extra TLC. I’m even quite proud of myself as I managed to get through the whole month with only one makeup purchase, hurray, more money in my piggy bank towards Christmas!
So here’s the run down of all the beauty products I’ve loved using during October.
I’m such a big fan of the Lush Bath Bombs but last month I’ve been using one of their shower creams and it smells incredible! It has a warm blackberry and vanilla fragrance and my morning showers have been feeling very cosy indeed! Not only does it smell good enough to eat but it lathers up really well on my sponge. The Comforter shower creme is full of essential oils so it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised, the perfect start to a cold, chilly day.
This wonderful facial exfoliator from Bee Good is so gentle on my sensitive skin and doesn’t leave it feeling as though my face has been scrubbed with sand paper. It’s excellent for getting rid of any dry, flaky patches, it’s creamy consistency soaks into my skin which helps to moisturise and keeps it feeling extremely soft and smooth. Bee Good exfoliator really has brightened up my complexion since I’ve introduced it as part of my weekly skincare routine.
After trying quite a few face masks in the past year this one has to be my all time favourite and one I’ve been using over the last month to give my complexion an extra boost. This light pink clay mask smells absolutely amazing with a hint of natural rose, which is one of my favourite scents. It gives my skin a real deep clean and gently removes all the dirt and grime, helping to unclog my pores, especially around my nose area. This mask has a real soothing and calming effect on my sensitive skin which is looking more even toned and feeling super soft. This will be one of my skincare saviours for a long time to come!
During the colder months my skin does tend to feel slightly drier than normal, so I switch to a heavier moisturiser as part of my daily skincare routine. I’ve been using Liz Earle’s Superskin Moisturiser, which is is absolutely amazing. It’s lightweight enough to be applied during the day under makeup, yet thick and creamy enough to use as a night cream. It’s non greasy and absorbs really quickly into my skin, I love how soft and nourished my skin feels and it stays hydrated all day.
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in shade Dash
I’ve been so impressed with this MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer that I’ve been using it a lot during October. I really love how well it applies and the amount of time it lasts, it won’t budge until I physically take it off with cleanser at the end of the day. It’s also great that for a long lasting lip product it doesn’t dry my lips out, oh and Dash is just the most adorable berry shade ever!
That brings me to the end of my monthly beauty favourites. What products have you loved using this month?
