February Favourites

February Beauty Favourites
As February has drawn to a close I have found myself once again choosing my favourite products from the past month. It was quite an easy one this time around as I knew what I wanted to feature without having to narrow it down too much.

First up is my Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in Pink Flush. This was a limited edition shade from the Nude Glo Collection and has been pretty much the only lipstick product that I have used this month aside from a couple of lip crayons. I did a review on this along with one of the palettes from the collection here if you would like a closer look.

For Christmas my mom ordered me a gift set off the Boots website where at the time there was a free sample promotion running of the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara. I finally opened this at the beginning of the month and have really being enjoying it as it really has helped to keep my lashes separated as well as providing volume and length; I've also been quite impressed with how it holds the curl throughout the day. 

During the month of February I was super good and only purchased one skincare product (no makeup at all) as I'm on a mission to use some things up at the moment, although the current 3 for 2 at Boots is extremely tempting! The product I picked up was the new reformulated Effaclar Duo + by La Roche -Posay because I really wanted to give it a try. Way back last year I had tried the original version and had been left disappointed by it so what made me pick this up I have no idea however I'm super glad that I did because it has worked wonders for my skin so far. I've not had any break outs since using this which has to be over three weeks now, in general my skin looks quite a lot clearer too.

I may have featured the Una Brennan Clay Mask from Super Facialist in a favourite post here and there in the past yet I feel justified in featuring it again as it is a wonderful product that can be picked up in your Boots; the range is also on offer quite a lot of the time too! Clay masks are some of my favourite skincare products to use, not just because it's just a little bit fun but because they really help to clear the skin of any impurities that are lurking. 

My last product from February comes in the form of a fragrance, none other than a celebrity one which in general I tend to not like as I have never really found any nice ones. However for Christmas I received the Lady Gaga Fame gift set and have being wearing it none stop ever since. The fragrance itself is black inside the glass bottle but sprays on clear, it's really quite unusual. It smells really nice and for me is perfect for every day, I also don't mind using this so frequently because it is more affordable compared to some of my other fragrances that I like to save for nice occasions.

Youtube - My favourite YouTube channel that I have being watching this month is HelloOctoberxo, ran by Suzie. She has a beautiful blog to coincide with her channel and has recently featured the bag of my dreams.

Blog - My favourite blog of the month is The Celution, ran by Celina this is full of beauty and lifestyle posts. She's also pretty darn nice too so it's worth checking her out!

What have you being enjoying using this month?

  5. The Una Brennan Clay mask is brilliant, definitely one of my favourite drugstore products :) I just can't decide whether I want to try the new Effaclar Duo or not because the original version broke me out so badly :/

    1. The original affected me in the same way too but this one couldn't be any more different. I'm not entirely sure what the difference is between the two other than the new version helps to tackle scarring, in terms of ingredients it is one I want to check xx

  6. The new Effaclar Duo+ is really nice in my opinion! Much more hydrating than the old formulation.

  8. I'm quite tempted to give the new Effaclar Duo a go, but the original broke me out so much I'm a little scared to!

  14. I quite like The Fame as well, especially since it reminds me of my New York holiday in 2012. They were giving out free samples near the Empire State Building and I remember spraying it on my wrist and surprisingly finding the fragrance nicer than expected. I am curious about the reformulated Effaclar Duo, I also didn't find the original version anything spectacular so this new one might be better for me.
