January Monthly Favourites | 2019

It has been so long since I have drafted up a monthly favourites post! I’m giving this series a re-boot which is refreshing for me because I have been meaning to share my love for a couple of products. I originally stopped this series this time last year actually due to the fact that I was running out of new favourites that had not already been mentioned on the blog. I was basically rotating my favourites around for months in use so it seemed pointless to continue writing them then. Now that my collection is entirely different, I’m ready to get back into the swing of posting Favourites!

My Favourite Beauty Combinations

I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time. It just occurred to me one evening whilst I was laying in bed (the best time for inspiration don’t you think?) and since then, I have been so excited to write this. This year probably marks the year where my routines are maturing. I know what I want to use, what product I’m looking for and which products I like using together or might possibly work well together. It’s less of the wishy-washy stuff and more of the products that really speak for themselves. Functionality over aesthetics. So without further ado, here it is, my favourite beauty combinations. No7 Youthful Eye Serum + Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream This is my favourite eyecare combo to date! I have long been a fan of the No7 Youthful Eye Serum so I would recommend it as a base for any of your eye creams. For me, once I introduced the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream along with it, it was a game-changer. I have been using eye cream …

January Monthly Favourites ft. Real Techniques and Bobbi Brown!

I am thrilled to talk about this month’s favourites!  Last month was quite a boring month (even if it was Christmas month…) because I didn’t really try anything new or if I did, it was very late within the month. Mainly, I stuck to my previous favourites so nothing changed. Despite so, my last favourites post actually fared really well, so thank you everyone! 🙂 I haven’t been beauty shopping much* because I am trying to use up what I do have whilst also resetting my current collection – both in skincare and makeup. This month’s buys consist only of two brushes (featured here) but everything else are months old in terms of purchase, so you can imagine my delight when I finally got round to trying (and loving) them! *I’ve bought bits and bobs from Home Bargains the other day, but they were extremely cheap and cheerful. Half were essentials and replacement items!  Here they are, in all their glory, my favourites of the month… Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil …

The Beauty Clean-Up #6 (empties) | HUGE Edition!

Overdue is largely an understatement right now but I’m glad I can actively throw away what’s been in my beauty junk box since the last time we spoke. [See: The Beauty Clean-up #5] I’ve been doing some major collecting to the point that my beauty junk box is well and truly overflowing. I need to throw these empty packets and bottles away! This is going to be a particularly long post so to (hopefully) make things easier, I’ll keep each product review as short as possible! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + Simple Micellar Cleansing Water – Simple Toning Cleanser = Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water + Bioderma Sébium H2O + The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc 1% + The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% + The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% + The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% + Boots No7 Youthful Eye Serum + Clinique All About Eyes + Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief – Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser * + Eucerin Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF 50+ …
