February Favourites

Just in the nick of time I'm popping up my favourite products from February, phew! Anybody else not like posting favourite posts if they fall into the wrong month? No....just me then.























I have being using the Collection Sheer Loose Powder over the last two weeks so I think I can justify it making it to a monthly favourite. I really like this at the moment as I find it to be better than the Rimmel Stay Matte; I find it much lighter on my skin as well as less powdery if that makes sense. This product is a complete bargain at £2.99; remember students can get it even cheaper at Superdrug with that nifty nus card! 

I'm completely in love with my LUSH Feeling Younger Skin Tint which for me is basically a highlighter. I use this on my brow bone as well as my cheek bones, where I find it creates a lovely sheen to my skin, I fully recommend giving this a go! At £12 it is not the cheapest highlighter product but I find that there is something with LUSH products that just entices me, I cannot keep away.

I've being using my Nail Envy by OPI more and more and I'm still in love with it, I've seen results so I know it is not just psychological from all the good reviews I've read in the past. This is pretty expensive to me so I'm hoping it lasts me a while as £18 for a nail product is extortionate! I'm not entirely sure where OPI are in terms of cruelty free, they are owned by a company that tests on animals but I do not know if they have remained independent.

I did a review on the B.Pure Micellar Water here of which I still stand by what I said. I really do like this product as I find it does the job pretty darn well and for £4.99 I can find no fault in it other than to say provide a bigger bottle B.

Lastly is the Effaclar Duo by La Roche-Posay, I'm sure you've seen this little gem crop up a number of times. However, it is new to me this month so allow me to get all excited about it and not get too annoyed. I had being suffering with my skin for the last month or so, break out after break out and I did not know why, it was rather unusual for my skin. I purchased this after reading numerous reviews on it and after using it for a week I have to say my skin was pretty much back to normal, the only issue I have with it is that it can be quite drying on the area around my nose. This product costs £13 however; I picked up two products in the Effaclar range for £15 from Boots so look out for the offers guys. La Roche-Posay is not cruelty free.

    1. It is so expensive! I purchased it on offer and with some Christmas money so I didn't feel too bad about picking it up, otherwise I wouldn't have got it.

      Crazy price! Oh, you're most welcome :D xx

  7. The micellar water is something I'm really drawn to buying, it looks like one of those products that is simple, but good. As for the La Roche-Posay product, funnily enough someone JUST recommended it to me, I definitely need to look more into it to see if it'll work for me. :)

    (As for the comment on my braces blog - getting teeth removed definitely was definitely scary, as it was a new and really kind of strange experience when I had the first two out (strange as in... someone drills your teeth and then removes them from your mouth?!) BUT, by the time I had the next two I knew what to expect and it was not scary at all!)

    1. I recommend the La Roche-Posay even though it isn't cruelty free, I found it does do what it claims :)

      I'm so scared of the dentist! I guess once you know what to expect though it is better as the fear of the unknown isn't there anymore. Thanks for getting back to me Catherine :) xx
