May Favourites

May has completely flown by for me, I spent two weeks in Edinburgh with my boyfriend after handing in my last ever assignment for university and now I'm back home after moving out of my flat; just in the nick of time to post my favourite products of the month.
























First up I've been really liking the No7 BB Lips in Blush Coral which I picked up whilst the No7 vouchers were floating around a number of weeks ago. I really do like this as they provide a nice bit of moisture to the lips whilst also adding colour, they're glossy but not sticky in the slightest. These get thumbs up from me!

A while ago balance Me had the Wonder Eye Cream free with a magazine, needless to say I quickly picked this up. I have however only opened it this month and I wish I had sooner as it is such a nice product. It is a nice light cream with a slight scent to it which isn't overwhelming in the least, I have found that it really does brighten up my eye area which in the world of eye creams is something to take note of as I never find any that work; this however is a new found love and I would definitely purchase the bigger version in the future.

Another product from balance Me is within my favourites this month, with this being the Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm*. I've being using this ever since I received it and I simply adore it, I did a review here if you would like to read more.

Next up is the Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil by Una Brennan. I use this oil a couple times of week to take my make up off as I do like to use different things on my skin; I'm forever switching it up. I find this works beautifully, with it leaving my skin feeling fantastic; it removes my entire make up wonderfully. My only real criticism of this is that the dispenser can pump out quite a bit if you're not careful, so the product could easily be wasted; I also wish the bottle was bigger.

Last up is a MAC Lipstick in the shade patisserie which has become my go to lipstick this last month, I simply adore it. I have Anna at 'viviannadoesmakeup' to thank for this as I saw her using it and completely fell in love. I wanted to see what it was like in the flesh so to speak, so after stopping by at the MAC counter in Edinburgh I finally swatched it and made my mind up that yes, patisserie would be coming home with me that day; it's love. I must note that MAC are no longer cruelty free as they sell in China.

*This product was kindly sent to me for consideration.

  15. As if I need more lipsticks, love the look of that one though! Also tempted to try the No7 lip product too, I always look for things that give shine without being gross and sticky! Great post.

  20. I really want to try the Balance Me cleansing balm, it sounds so lovely. I've only tried one thing from them, which is the Radiance Oil, and while I think it's an absolutely lovely product it unfortunately broke me out so has had to be shelved :(
    Patisserie looks lovely, such a shame that Mac have sold out on the cruelty-free thing though, very disappointing. :(

    1. Oh no that is such a shame :( Hopefully the cleansing balm would be better, at least I hope so as it is so nice.

      I know, it's irritating hence me not buying from them hardly ever, in fact I've only ever purchased from them once to date which was to buy this lipstick xx
