I know I’m a few days late with this post but it’s round to Monthly Beauty Favourites time again! November really did seem to fly past so quickly and here we are, only a few weeks away from Christmas! I’ve been playing Christmas music for a few weeks now and singing along to all my favourite songs, it doesn’t matter that I can’t sing a note in tune because I’m having fun and that’s all that matters!
I’ve had a great time discovering some new brands this month and I thought I’d share five products I’ve loved using and have been reaching for the most during November.
This is such a gorgeous thick body cream that makes my skin feel as soft as silk, which is absolutely wonderful during the winter months when my skin can feel a bit drier than normal. I’ve been applying this after my bath in the evenings and it just smells divine. This is the first time I’ve tried a product from Rituals and I think I’ll definitely be testing out a few more in their range!
I know, before anyone says it, this cream is aimed at a much maturer lady than I am, but I have been using this every night for a month and my skin is so soft! I’ve been using a few other items from the B range and absolutely love them, the only reason I picked this one up was because 1. I had run out of night cream and 2. Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer on and this was the only night cream in store. My skin is going through a few changes at the moment, mainly down to some medication I’m on and I’d noticed how dull it was looking. This night cream is a wonderful thick consistency that just melts nicely into my skin leaving it feeling so soft. My complexion looked so much brighter the following morning and my skin felt super hydrated. I shall be returning to trying out some more products as I’m seriously loving Superdrug’s B range at the moment.
No one wants dry lips, especially when you’re wearing a dark lip colour. My lips seem to get really dry and sore during the colder months so I never go anywhere without a good lip balm. I’ve recently discovered this gorgeous one by Hurrah which has made my lips super soft and has completely gotten rid of any dry, flaky areas. I’ve been wearing it alone on a “no makeup day” and, because it’s not too greasy, it’s also perfect for applying underneath a matte lip colour.
ELF Studio Blush in shade Berry Merry
I had been looking for a berry toned blusher for Autumn to replace the pastels of summer. Then I saw this Elf Blusher in Honestly Aine’s YouTube video and it seemed the perfect one. I’ve used Elf eyeshadows before and absolutely loved them, so I was really pleased to get hold of this blusher. It’s the most gorgeous berry blusher for this time of year, you don’t need a lot of it but it just gives you a really nice healthy glow and perfect for my hair and skin tones. It’s also such a great bargain at only £4.50!
Elf Lipstick in shade Red Carpet
I actually bought this to wear in the lead up to Christmas but when it arrived I loved it so much that I’ve worn it a lot through November already! It is a beautiful shade of red, but not so bold that it’s in your face. It inspired me to dig out my Urban Decay Naked palette and have worn this lipstick with gold and neutral toned eyeshadows. I bought the Moisturising Lipstick which is a velvety, soft texture and glides on really lovely without dragging the skin. It also contains Shea Butter and Vitamins to help hydrate the lips and it’s just so comfortable to wear. The colour stays on really well throughout the day, with only one touch up after lunch, but if you’re after something that’s going to last a lot longer then maybe the Matte version would have more staying power.
