Oh wow! How quickly are the months going this year. It’s only 40 something days until the 6 weeks holidays and honestly it can’t come any sooner. I haven’t done one of these favourite posts for a while now but I feel that because of this the products I am discussing are those that I have been loving for a while now but I haven’t shared them. So lets get on with it…
Mac Blush in Harmony – Now because I went on holiday at Easter I have got quite the sun kissed skin and I found it tricky to find a bronzer that worked well as a contour. My brother bought me this blush for my birthday back in February but because it is quite dark I never got much use out of it. However, now my skin is darker it works perfectly! It’s a perfect contour colour, without being to orangey. I use my real techniques brush to apply it but I feel that this makes it go on a little streaky so if you have any contour brush recommendations please let me know!
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach – This is one of those lip products I am really starting to love now the sun is shining! I’m sort of feeling like this is a holiday makeup post but it’s not! I swear! This is such a gorgeous peachy pink colour without being too bold. I don’t tend to go for the bold lips, my favourite mac lipstick being crème cup! This shade looks gorgeous with a tan and you can tell I’ve used it that much the writing has all rubbed off. Whooops.
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream – Now to be honest I’m baffled by all of the CC, BB jargon. I just know that they are not as heavy as a foundation and I like that. I hate heavy foundations and only wear my Nars Sheer Glow for special occasions. I do prefer to go bare faced but when I feel I need a bit of cover this is perfect. Again it’s one of those products which is perfect for Summer, as it has an SPF 15 in. It basically covers any imperfections and hides any odd patches or discolouring in your skin. I definitely recommend this one I just wish they did darker shades.
Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray- This product is a little gem and if you don’t have it I recommend you go and buy it! I bought mine in duty free as they do a really good package where you get the eye roll on, the moisture surge moisturiser and this spray. It is so ideal for holidays, hot sunny days and travelling! I use it on the aeroplane to give my skin a little hydration. It’s basically a moisturising spray, which is the perfect size to fit in your travel makeup bag. It also works so well at cooling the skin down. I love you Clinique!
Natures Garden Sea Kelp – Now you may see that on the bottle it says these tablets are for weight management. However, this is not why I take them. Sea kelp is said to have ingredients which boost hair growth, nutrients to strengthen hair and it helps to prevent split ends and damage. Now I’ve tried every hair growth trick under the sun and I really do think these tablets are effective. I take them every day and my hair is getting longer (even though I get regular trims). It appears healthier and hey I’m happy with that! You can get these tablets from Holland and Barrett.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Light – I was so confused when I first saw these come out. Is it a mousse? Is it a conditioner? What is it? Well its basically a conditioning mousse you use after shampooing and it claims to boost volume whilst conditioning your hair. Now I am very much in love with the Aussie range and their amazing smells so I’ll try anything from them. But this product is something else. It makes my hair feel amazing and bouncy but without the crunchy mousse weighed down feeling. I really don’t know how it works because you wash it out of your hair. But it does? And who am I to question it! This has replaced my original take the heat 3 minute miracle for now and I’m definitely loving it!
So that’s it! My favourites for the very fast flying month of May! Let me know what you think of these products? What products have made it into your favourites this month?
