February Favourites

Recently Ive made a habit of doing my monthly favourites on my youtube channel, but this month my brother has borrowed my video camera to take on his skiing holiday, so my favourites are here as a blog post!

Ive been trying a lot out this month but havent got a chance to give a lot of things a proper go, so it was hard to choose my favourites but theres a sneak peak above.

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning For Face
This stuff is amazing. SWalkerMakeUp recommended it ages ago and since then it has been in the back of my mind to pick it up, and now I have and Im so glad. It is what it says on the bottle, a self tnner for your face. Im not one to use my body tanner on my ace as I dont want my face to be quite as dark as th tan on my body, just a nice golden glow. Also those tanners have broken me out on my face before so when I heard about this I was excited to try it. Im going to a ull review on this sometime this week so I wont go too much into it, but its now in my everyday routine. I got mine from Feel Unique for £17.


MAC Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom
I just had this in my last MAC haul post, but Im already in love with it. It looks so gorgeous in the pan and just as pretty on the face. I just swril my brush in it and it gives a lovely light pink colour. Its one of those great blushes that you dont have to worry about applying too much, as its quite light so its very hard to aply too much all at once, which I often do with my more pigmented blushes! Also this is absolutely huge for a blush, the same size as and MSF, so its going to last forever. It was limited edition and the collection seems to have disappeared from the website so I think its over now, sorry guys!

Kleenex Extra Gentre Facial Cleansing Wipes
Im not really a huge fan of make-up wipes, and only every use them to apply the bulk of eyemakeup etc before cleansing properly, and since getting these Ive been using them alone which is something Ive never done for ages, and probably a bad habit to pick up. They feel so much softer and more gentle than other wipes, they are made from an amazingly oft material which feels very soothing on the skin, you wont understand until you try them out. Theyre s ogood at getting rid of stubborn mascara and eye makeul and as of yet they havent made my skin red or irritiated like others do. Also theyre very eco-friendly because of their material, according to the packaging, so thats good too. Big thumbs up, highly recommend trying these out! These were on an introductory sale price of around £1.50 in Superdrug when I got mine a few weeks ago, but they arent more than around £4 normally.

Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme in Iced Gold
I bought this from recommedations from some of my most trusted youtubers and they came up trumps, this stuff is amazing! Its the best highlighter Ive ever used, bold statement there. It gives a lovely dewy sheen to the skin (I mostly just use it on the tops of the cheekbones and the excess down my nose), without being overly glittery. I just apply this with my finger and it goes on a dream. It catches the light beautifully and loks very natural for daytime, but can be built up for a more dramatic night time look. Theres not much more I can say really, its just fab. I got it from Feel Unique for £17.

Origins Eye Doctor Eye Cream
This is the eye cream I use every night before bed. (A full video coming soom on my skincare routine) It is a little pricey at £25 for 15ml, but you can see how much Ive used and Ive used it every night since the first week of January. This tiny pot could literally last me well over a year! The product is amazing. So creamy and moisturising like you wouldnt believe. I used to get rather dry under my eyes and my concealer could look cakey, but that is a thing of the past because of this! Its just really great at keeping you soft around your eye area, and like I said you need the tiniest amount so its actually good value for money. I wouldnt go a night without this!

Thanks for reading!
