September Favourites

Today I'm going to be showing you my favourite products from September. I'm a day late in posting this, I'm so particular about things like that! Anyhow, throughout September I was so good in terms of not buying random stuff that I didn't really need, I think I literally spent £10 on make-up and body care items which is pretty good for me!
I finally got my hands on the MUA Undressed palette from my local Superdrug and I have to say, oh my days....it is amazing; like I had no idea it was going to be this good. If you so far have withheld from buying this gem then I suggest you go and grab one as soon as possible as it is just superb! This palette cost me just £4, it was even less with student discount so for that price it just exceeded all expectations. The shades are so pigmented and last very well throughout the day in my opinion. I cannot compare it to the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 as I do not own that and to be honest; I probably will not rush to buy it now I have this.

The second item is The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist which smells so good; I often find myself using this just to smell the fragrance! I use this after the shower, I find a little goes a long way and it doesn't leave my skin feeling 'damp' afterwards. A truly lovely product of which there are a number of other scents available. This retails at £7.50 which I can say I would pay again, I love it!

My third item is something which I wasn't sure whether to include but then when I saw something very similar in Rachael's September Favourites I was reassured to pop it in, so thanks Rachael! Therefore, my third item from the month is from The Body Shop which is the 'Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist' which I purchased earlier on this year. I remember buying this when I was literally at crisis point when I could not sleep whilst at University. I had ear plugs and everything just to block any amount of noise out, I get so easily irritated when trying to drift off. I really like this product, don't get me wrong it doesn't send me to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow but I can say it makes me feel more relaxed. I only use this on my bedding as to be honest, I didn't even realise I could use it on my body! The smell at first I found to be quite sure and I feared I had wasted my money but I've got used to it and I really quite like it now, it smells of Lavender and Camomile. This costs £10 and I think if I were to struggle sleeping again I would buy it again however, I will be finishing University this April so hopefully no more struggles!

Lastly is my current favourite nail polish by Barry M 'Raspberry' which I did a review on here. I love this shade; it is perfect for autumn....perfect! These cost £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug or indeed Barry M themselves.

I hope you all enjoyed my monthly favourites, have any of you used these products? If so let me know what you think!
