Monthly Favourites | October 2016

Hello again,

For the first time in a very long time, I thought I’d share my monthly favourites. Although I love reading these types of posts, I always forget to post my own. I’ve also written another similar post about all of the things I did this month.

Estée Lauder Shape + Fill Expert Serum

I’ve only started using this recently but it’s such an effective serum that it felt wrong not to include it. I basically use this after I’ve cleansed my face, I’ve applied my under-eye cream and I’m about to go to bed. When I wake up, my skin still feels smooth and hydrated as opposed to the dry mess that it’s usually in.

Rimmel Rita Ora nail polish in ‘Lose Your Lingerie’

This polish is literally ALWAYS on my nails. It’s such a pretty but subtle colour so it’s really wearable. I used to be into really deep, berry toned polishes but recently I’ve been gravitating to more natural colours. This polish is really affordable so I’ll definitely buy it again. I’m pretty sure mine is nearly all gone…

The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser

I was really surprised at how effective this product turned out to be. I expected it to clean my face thoroughly because it’s from The Body Shop and I trust their products. However, I didn’t expect it to remove all of my makeup and in particular my waterproof mascara. I rub a small amount into my face with my fingers and then wipe it off with a damp cloth. It gets rid of my makeup after one use but I always do a second one just in case.

Clinique Lash Building Primer

As mentioned in my review of this product, this primer is amazing! If you’re looking to invest in a good eye product, let it be this one. I’m a firm believer that eyelash primers are more important that mascaras. How else do people make their mascara stay on all day?

Palmer’s Coconut Moisture Gro

I absolutely despise coconut and anything that smells like coconut but my nanan assured me that this would make my hair a lot softer and more hydrated. Since I had my hair done it’s been a bit dry so once a week I’ve started leaving this oil all over my hair for the night and washing it off in the morning. It makes my hair so soft and easy to style. I think I’m willing to move past the coconut smell.

Lush ‘Mask of Magnaminty’ 

I only bought this at the beginning of the month but I already love it. Although mint isn’t one of my favourite smells, this product feels amazing on my skin. This product was recommended to be by a Lush sales assistant who even showed me how the mask felt on my skin in the store. I loved it so much when I got home that I wrote a whole blog post about it.

MUA Radiant Illumination Highlighting Kit

This product was released at the beginning of October (or the end of September – I can’t actually remember). I think I saw it in one of the many emails that Superdrug seem to send me. This palette was meant to be £6 but Superdrug were offering students a 20% discount when I bought it so I got it for quite a bit cheaper.

Dark Places

I’ve only just started this book but I’ve been binging on it since I turned the first place. It’s just as dark as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, which is also one of my favourites, but it’s a lot less predictable. I haven’t finished it yet but so far I’m in love.
