I am a bit late with the November Favourites but that's mainly because I was on holiday and work was so busy when I got back. Apart from that, most of the products I have been loving from my October Favourites have been pretty much the same. I have a few new products so I thought I may share them with you.
Skincare Favourite Products
During Winter, my skin just goes completely nuts and it was even worse when I went on holiday but I think it may have been down to the junk food I was eating. Anyway, I put in a little more effort during Winter so my skin looks good and withstands all the dryness that comes with Winter. I have been using more oils and moisturising skincare products. I recently stumbled upon facial massaging which you can do for yourself and I love it. I picked up the Body Shop Facial Massager/Roller which is amazing for massaging the face and helps in ensuring any facial oil used is well absorbed. I just love it! Moving on to Body Care/Body Skin Care, I generally hate using creams on my body because I just feel it's too much of a palaver and faff in the morning and I hardly use any body cream on the regular. I guess I am just lucky that I have oily skin so it goes unnoticed during the warmer weather but during Winter, I am forced to use a moisturiser for my body because it feels really dry and ashy especially around my elbows. I have gone back to my old love and all-time favourite body cream which is the E-45 Moisturising Lotion and it is very good for all skin types but particularly if you have drier skin. It is non-greasy and absorbs really easily into my skin while keeping it moisturised and fresh all day.
Makeup and Makeup Brushes Favourites
As mentioned earlier, I have been loving and using pretty much the same makeup as always but I recently made two new additions. I picked up the Makeup Forever HD Foundation during my last trip to Paris and I have not stopped using it ever since. I love it and it has been on my wish list for the longest time but it's sadly not sold in the UK. I plan a full review soon so I won't give away too much but I really like it. I have also been loving the Sleek Blush in Sahara which is also an old favourite and I think it was one of the first blushes I bought from Sleek . I have repurchased it a couple of times and I think it is one of the most flattering blushes they make. It can be used as a blush, transition eye shadow colour and even a contour/bronzer. I use it mainly as a blush and as an eyeshadow transition colour and I am obsessed with it. I have also been using my YSL Baby Doll Mascara non-stop because it does such an excellent job for my eyelashes. It holds a curl, lengthens and volumizes the lashes without any clumping. It's so worth the hefty price tag. I have also been unhealthily obsessed with my Sephora Brushes which I picked up from Sephora in Paris. Again, I have used them every single day and I love them. I picked up the Multi tasker brush #45 and Pro Air Brush #55 but I would review them separately so watch out for that.
Fragrance and Nail Care Favourites
Although it is Winter an I think I should be going for heavier scents, I just find myself picking up the Zara Oriental Fragrance because I just love it. It smells like a mix of fruity and floral scent with a twist of musk. I love how simple it is but the lasting power is not the best although I don't mind reapplying it during the day. For Nail Polish, I have been loving the Barry M Nail Polishes in Bright Red and Bright Purple (and yes, those are their names) and I think they are very appropriate for the season (Christmas and A/W). They are so easy to apply and they do not chip easily especially when you pair it with the ultimate Top Coat-Seche Vite. That's it folks and I hope you had an amazing month and you are enjoying December. See you in my next post...x
