October Favorites

 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5

Ah look at me 2 blog posts in one month, quite proud of myself ^_^ So I thought I'd do a monthly favourites because it's easy and I actually have a few products I've been loving this month.

Soap and Glory - Whipped Clean
My skin hates winter, it goes so dry and really sore so I have to buy a lot of moisturising washes. For a while I was eyeing up the L'occitane Almond Shower Oil but it was £16 (yes £16) so I decided I have to find something cheaper. I stumbled across this by chance in Boots, they where doing a 3 for 2 offer so I decided to treat myself to something from Soap and Glory. This was the first item to catch my eye and after reading the label realised it was exactly what I was looking for. It says you don't even need to moisturise afterwards but I find that I still have to but my skin is less dry than shower washes like Dove have left my skin. This really is a lovely product and is half the price of the Almond Shower Oil at £8, the packaging is also lovely so I think you all should go pick it up today ;D

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days
Like I mentioned above my skin is so dry atm and needs constant moisturising so this is perfect, ignore the 7 day promise like that is actually true but it does last me all day which is all I need! I absolutely love the smell of this it's lovely and it just does a really good job of keeping my skin moisturised

Redken Scalp Relief Oil Detox Shampoo
Let's just start by saying, I have Eczema its on my arms, legs, face and yes my scalp, you can't tell but once in a while I get a flare up and my hair suffers, I try not to wash it everyday but sometimes because it gets so oily and sore I find myself needing to. I decided to bite the bullet and order this from FeelUnique and all I can say is WOW, its just a great product that does exactly what it promises to do and I don't need to wash it as much. My scalp feels lovely and soothed and my hair is squeaky clean, I would however recommend using a conditioner on your ends as it can be quite drying on its own.

MAC Studio Sculp Foundation
I hated this when I first got it I found it made my skin so shiny looking so I put to the back of my make up draw and left it there. A few months went by and I got some control over my oily skin so decided to try it out again and now I'm in love, I wear it all the time, it's less shiny and lasts all day. You don't need a lot either (I apply it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush) and now I'm running low. I think I'm gonna have to take a trip to MAC very soon.....I need to stop spending money!

REN Clear Calm Clay Cleanser
That is a mouthful of a name try saying it out loud, I got tongue tied :') Anyway that doesn't matter the product itself is amazing. I don't think my skin is as bad as it was when I was a teenager but I do get blemishes at those special times of the month and I also suffer from alot of redness on and around my nose so I wanted something to just calm my skin down and this is exactly what this does. I like to use this of an evening after I've removed my make up to just keep those pesky spots from getting bigger. I find when I use this my skin is so soft, calm and stays as clear as it can. The one downside is the smell, it's just a blah smell but once you wash it off you can't smell it anymore. I would recommend this to people who suffer from blemish prone skin and/or alot of redness.

Body Shop Vanilla Eau De Toilette
What can I say, this just smells really lovely and is perfect for this time of year. It lasts all day long and I've had alot of compliments on it. One problem is the Body Shop have discontinued this so I cannot link it, why do this to me Body Shop! :(

Sorry for the awful photo quality, when I get home from work it's dark so this is the best I could do!
