February Favourites...

These are the products that I have been loving and using non-stop throughout February...

I'll start with MAKEUP...

















Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation - My favourite everyday foundation at the moment, gives a nice light to medium coverage and creates a natural looking healthy complexion! I apply it using a Real Techniques buffing brush.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Literally used this concealer pretty much everyday for the past year, haven't yet found anything that I like as much for covering under eye circles or redness! Nice smooth creamy formula with a medium coverage, I apply it using a RT eye shading brush.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - I use the shade Translucent, which is great as it eliminates shine without getting that 'cakey' powdery look! Creates a natural looking matte finish which lasts pretty much all day.

Louise Young Essential Eye Palette - Love love love this palette, I use it for my eyebrows, everyday eyeshadow looks, smokey eyes... It is such a versatile palette and very compact so perfect for putting in your makeup bag. I've pretty much used it everyday since I bought it!!

Sleek Blush, Pixie Pink - It looks a really scary bright barbie pink colour in the pan, BUT if you use it sparingly with a light hand and tap off the excess before you apply it, it gives a lovely glowing pinky flush! I've been loving this the past few months to brighten up my dull pale winter skin!

Maxfactor Clump Defy Mascara - Now, I only bought this half way through February, but I really have been enjoying using it! It is the newest addition to the Maxfactor mascara collection, so I had to try it given my obsession with these mascaras! I'm glad I did, it adds lots of length and separation to the lashes plus a touch of volume, making it the perfect everyday mascara for me! 

NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss, Beige - I really like the formula of this lipgloss, its lovely and creamy and not sticky! But it's the shade that I particularly like, it's a soft natural pink colour (not at all beige like its name suggests) It goes really well with a smokey eye look for an evening out, or even just to wear everyday to get a natural look.

Apivita Lip Balms - These lip balms have been my saviour over winter! I have had really dry sore lips with all the cold weather we have been having so I've been using these non stop! The formula is really rich and soft and keeps the lips moisturised for a good few hours! Another thing I love is that some of the 'flavours' are tinted giving a sheer touch of colour on the lips! I tried one at christmas time and loved it so much that I pretty much bought every one in the collection! These aren't the cheapest at £5 a pop, but for me it's so rare to find a lip balm that actually works, so I think they are worth every penny!!


HAIRCARE...


























Bedhead Hard Head Hairspray - My favourite strong hold hairspray EVER, great for updos, the hair will literally not move after a good coating of this!

Tresemme Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo - Does the job without leaving any powdery white residue and it smells nice and fresh!

Tresemme Heat Protectant - Again, does its job without leaving the hair feeling sticky or 'crispy'.

Moroccan Oil - After having my hair blonde for over a year my hair started to get quite dry and damaged at the ends, this has really rescued it! I apply a small amount to damp hair after washing and it leaves my hair looking healthy and shiny! 

V05 Give Me Texture Powder - I've been loving this for giving my hair and extra boost! It adds volume and texture at the roots, also good to use before backcombing to give extra hold and oomph!


SKINCARE...


























Bioderma Sensibo H2O - My favourite cleanser, just feels like water no stinging or tingling and no scent, yet it removes even the most stubborn makeup! Amazing!

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - I've already expressed my love for this many a time, really great for clearing up and also preventing breakouts! 

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream - Just a lovely moisturiser for dehydrated skin, leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated! 

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Softening Lotion - Now I don't agree that is keeps you moisturised for 7 days, but it certainly leaves you skin feeling soft and moisturised for a couple of days, has a nice texture, smell and absorbs quickly so you don't get that sticky feeling! There are also different ones available for different skin types, mine is the shea butter formula for dry skin.

Apivita Face Masks - A great little treat for you skin when it needs a pick me up, there are loads of different ones suited to different skin types. They cost £2.50 for two sachets which I think is pretty reasonable, especially as I get two uses out of each sachet!


Any products which I have not linked to a website can be purchased from Boots/ a supermarket.
