January Favourites!!!

product review

jan faves

It’s never too late to talk about favourites, especially when it comes to the products I plan on sharing with you today! In the last few weeks some of these gems have been an absolute saviour to me. So sit back and relax while I let you in on what products I found difficult to put down over January!

Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Scrub 100ml, €11.10, HICKEYS

eucerin jan faves

I wouldn’t be surprised if you guys are having dreams about Eucerin at this stage! This brand has been featured in my last few monthly favourites! I am honestly in love with the Dermo PURIFYER range as it has proved to work amazingly on my skin. This oil-free scrub works very gently on the skin, which makes it suitable for everyday use. Also, the lactic acid and pore-refining micro particles help reduce the appearance of blackheads and blemishes. Best part? It is non-comedogenic so it doesn’t block pores!

TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray 500ml, €6.73, BOOTS

tresemme jan faves

When it comes to my hair (slash weave) there are certain brands that I use repeatedly because they never fail to deliver. TRESemmé is up on the list so the results of this products didn’t come as a huge shock to me at all! It is fast drying, has a long-lasting hold, and doesn’t leave your with that awful dry feeling that some hair sprays do. J’adore!

Vera Wang Princess 30ml, €50.75, Debenhams

vera wang princess jan faves

They say the scent of every perfume you have reminds you of a certain period of your life. I first got Vera Wang Princess a good few years ago and then I stopped using it. I had forgotten how much I loved this scent until I started using it again only to fall in love with it all over again. I was absolutely thrilled to have this gifted to me in the last few weeks as I haven’t stopped using it since. It has a very feminine and youthful floral scent with a touch of dark chocolate. It is light, airy and not overpowering at all!

7th Heaven Dead Sea Mud Pac 20g, €1.40, HICKEYS

mud mask jan faves

I love a good face mask. Whether it is homemade or store-bought, I am all for a good face mask. Now, I don’t normally go for the little packets they sell in the chemist, but for some reason I decided to give this particular one try – and I’m glad I did! This hard drying cleansing mask leaves my skin feeling unbelievably smooth! Unlike some hard drying face mask, this comes off very easily! Cheap, cheerful, and does a good job! Can’t go wrong!

Lancôme Effortless Chic Eyes, €27.50, Arnotts

lancome jan faves

Yes, yes and yes! If I could only choose three products to give my face some life, then I would choose these three! This Lancôme set has a lash-lengthening mascara, a lip plumping gloss (slight obsession with making my lips appear bigger), and a kohl black liner. When I don’t have much time in the morning, I do my eyebrows (of course), then throw these little guys into my handbag! This trio will ensure your face never looks lifeless – even when you’re feeling basic! You’ll definitely get your money’s worth with this!

Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you’re a fan of any of these! Also, don’t forget to enter my YSL giveaway! I have up to €100 worth of YSL makeup to giveaway ! Again, may the best woman win! 🙂

    I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a fab New Years - I’m nearly certain I forgot to say it in my last blog post, sorry! But like always, I’ve been drooling over a couple of new products over the past few weeks and I just can’t help but share…

November favourites!!!

product review

Is it just me, or did November just fly by? I can’t believe it is December already! The countdown has begun for the day we’ll all be stuffing our faces with roast turkey, creamy gravy and everything & anything that has even a pinch of cinnamon in it – that’s right, I’m an animal!

But enough about Christmas weight gain, today’s post is about a much brighter and positive topic: my ultimate beauty faves in November! Since my last monthly favourites got so much positive feedback, I’ve decided to round up yet another list of what I’ve been loving over the past few weeks – gotta love those lists!

Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Cleanser 200ml,€11.17, HICKEY’S

nove gave

Where have you been all my life? Like seriously!? I bought this cleanser a few weeks ago (yes, bloggers buy things sometimes) and I honestly can’t see myself going back to anything else. It is super gentle on the skin, yet very effective at removing dirt and oil. It is also non-comedogenic, meaning it is formulated not to cause blocked pores. I think it helps to add that the Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Cleanser is effectively proven on patients with blemished or acne prone skin –safe to say that I can attest to that!

Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream 100ml, €17, Debenhams

nove 5

If there’s any feeling in the world that I just cannot handle, it is the feeling of dry hands. I am even known for it by my colleagues. In work, I leave lotion at handy to ensure that my skin is always soft to touch. Out of all the creams I have left in the till drawer, this hand cream is by far my favourite. The Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream is super rich, super effective and super soothing – it’s all in the name really! The tiniest amount makes such a huge difference as it soothes even the driest patches. This rich, moisture-replenishing cream is also great for treating areas like elbows or knees! A definite must try in my books, especially since it’s a limited edition!

Infinity Cellulose Sponge, 2 for €1.99, Pharmacies

nove 4

Okay, this might seem like an odd one because it isn’t exactly like any of the other two products I’ve mentioned so far, but nonetheless, I feel that they deserves just as much praise! I found that these little guys are brilliant for removing every trace of makeup. Along with a facial wash, a cellulose sponge can gently exfoliate the skin leaving it cleaner and fresher. They are naturally hypo allergenic meaning they are unlikely to cause a reaction. Lastly, they are cheap and cheerful, so if you’re anything like me, that’s enough of a reason for you to want to try one out!

Rituals Fortune Oil Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood 200ml, €8.50, Arnotts

nove faves

I got this shower oil in a set a good few months ago, but only started using it recently (beauty blogger problems). I must admit, I am glad I started using this when I did, otherwise I would be completely unaware of how amazing this product is. Not to throw shade at any of the other products that came in the set, this oil is a real star in the range. It becomes a soft and silky foam once in contact with water and leaves a lingering smell on the skin after the bath. And as you know, I love my baths and I love anything the plays with my sense of smell! J’adore!

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Skin Protectant Cream 50ml, €33, Arnotts

nove faves 3

Last, and certainly not least, is my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. There’s no better time to use this legendary skincare product than now! With the cold weather creeping in, our hands, lips and skin are subjected to dryness. This stuff does absolute wonders to the skin as it keeps it protected from harsh weather conditions. Some like to use it to shape their brows, or soothe dry hands, but I like to use it on my lips, my cuticles and in between my fingers.

I hope you enjoyed reading my monthly favourites as much as I enjoyed using them – okay, maybe not that much! Have a fabulous first of December and fingers crossed you close the final chapter of this year with a bang! 🙂

    There’s nothing worse than setting your eyes on a new lippy, falling in love with it and then realising that it is way over your normal lipstick budget. ‘Steal or splurge?’ is the question I find myself asking when I’m trying to decide how badly I really need –or want…
