Beauty Favourites.


I haven't actually posted a monthly favourites since January! I got a little bored of posting them for a while, it all felt very samey on my blog for the longest time and change is good right?! I thought I'd post one today though because, well, why not! (It's a little early, but I'm just a keen been to share my favourites with you guys! ;))

I think everyone here knows I have had terrible skin for the past few months, I think I mention on the blog at least once a week. To combat it I've been using the Superfacialist Tea Flower Purifying Cleansing wash every morning & as a second cleanse in the evenings for a few weeks. I don't think it's anywhere near a miracle worker but it's affordable and makes my skin feel fresh and clean. I've also been using my DIY Clay Mask every few nights, either on it's own or with the REN Glycolactic mask first. I mix it with pure rosehip oil for the hopes of a miracle. Not quite yet but baby soft, decongested skin is a plus! So much love for such a simple mask.
The Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion has been mentioned approx 8 million times in the past few weeks and with good reason, it's SO incredible on nasty under the skin hormonal spots, a life saver I tell ya!

Makeup wise, the RMS Beauty 'Un' Powder is my new favourite possession. Pure silica this mattifies skin, sets makeup, gives a flawless smooth finish and without anyone guessing you've used powder. I imagine this is like many of the 'super powders' out lately, but there's no chemicals, fragrance, colour, talc or irritating ingredients. Just magic in a pot. 
I've also been looooving the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Bashful. A really pretty pinky nude shade that's nice and glossy, feels moisturising and is sheer enough for scaredy cats like me who shy away from colour.

Lastly! The only shade for summer appropriate toes this month, Mavala's Waikiki Orange. This has been a permenant fixture in the foot department for nearly the whole month, and it will be all of next month too I assume. The perfect orange/coral shade that makes me happy to stare at my feet! You can see it in action here when I swatched it for Nouvelle Daily. They're such a steal for only £4! 

What have you been loving beauty wise this month?
Did anyone try my DIY mask recipe?! ;)

  4. I've been reading a lot of the good things about the gloss stick from Soap and Glory. Gotta try that soon!

    Lately I've been loving the Rimmel Apocalips in Apocaliptic. It's such a bold lip color and the texture is really nice too.
