May Favourites

Friday, 30 May 2014


So here it is, my first monthly favourites post and I must say it was so hard to choose, but these are some of my stand out products that I have either discovered or been using a lot of this month.

Superfacialist by Una Brennan Rose Brighten and Refine Facial Scrub

I have really been loving this brand since discovering it a couple of months ago. I also use the cleanser from this range and it is brilliant (you can read about it as part of my morning routine here). This scrub is pretty abrasive so I only use it once a week but it is such a nice exfoliation. The scent is really nice, not too overpowering as some rose scented products can be, and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth as a babies bum.

Antipodes Hosanna Intensive Hydrating Serum

This product is my new holy grail. It is one of my first products from Antipodes and I am super impressed with the brand. I have been using this serum at night before (or sometimes instead of) my moisturiser. It is great skin in a bottle, I wake up to the softest skin and it really helps with create plump healthy looking skin. This is definitely going to be a part of my skin routine FOREVER.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

This is a product that I have read about on many blogs but never really thought it was something I needed. However I picked it up during Superdrugs 3 for 2 and I love it. It makes the whole removing polish malarky so quick, fuss free and tidy! It is honestly a miracle in a bottle and I can't see myself ever being without it again.

Phyto 7 Hydrating Day Cream

I got this little beaut in my Selfridges Beauty Box (see here) and it is such a great product! I have bleach on my ends and usually just use an oil on them as I have always tended to shy away from using creams as sometimes they feel a bit heavy but not this one! It is so light and makes my ends look so healthy and shiny when I run a tiny blob through them after styling.

Models Own Polish for Tans in Shades

This is the colour that has been gracing my hands the most over the last month. I got it before I went on holiday and wore it on my toes and hands most of the time I was away and when I got back. As you can tell from the name this polish is great with a tan and just seems to make my hands look so much nicer! It is a great wearable neon coral/pink and definitely adds a bit of jazz to my talons.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

I got this powder only a week ago and it is already in my favourites, that is how much I love it! I managed to pick it up from House of Fraser in Guildford who had just got a delivery in of the new packaging and I was so excited to get it after it being sold out everywhere for so long!! I toyed with getting it a while ago but went for Lightscapade instead as I thought it was more me but I immediately regretted not getting this (as well!) It is such a lovely highlighting shade with the coral blushes that I tend to lean towards in the warmer months. And it looks great with the tiny bit of colour I have on my face post holiday. The only thing I will say is I really don't like the new packaging :( Mac what have you done!!!!

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette in Truth

One of my friends got me this palette a couple of months ago and it has been one I have been reaching for a lot recently to create a day to day neutral eye. I love all the shades in the palette and the formula is super creamy and stays put for the whole day.

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

I mentioned this blush the other day in my Selfridges Beauty Box which I received it in. The colour and formula are perfect. It is absolute perfection. Plus it is in a diddy little compact which I love. I would honestly buy this size over full size purely because it is so adorable.

So there are my favourites for May. I hope you enjoyed reading :)
