Here we are again, another monthly favourites post! I feel like February flew by even with the extra day. But hurrah, March is here so thankfully Winter is now behind us and hopefully the warmer weather will arrive soon? We can hope! It also means one month until my trip to Amsterdam so I’m excited about that! Anyway, this month’s favourites are a little varied. It includes a rediscovery, a christmas present and the most stunning make up brushes ever..
When it comes to hair products, I’ve been always been a bit sceptical. I rarely ever buy them, most of them are samples I’ve received. This is because I find they never do anything, nothing ever changes, my hair always looks and feels the same. I’ve always thought of them as a fad. That is until I tried the Shine Spray from Label.M aka a product that actually works! This spray really transforms dull hair with it’s blend of bamboo, fig, echinacea and juniper. It also protects hair from the affects of hair styling and the sun’s UV rays. The result is gorgeous, glossy hair with a lovely shine.
A re discovery this month comes from Sleek and it’s their amazing Face Contour Kit in Light. I can’t believe I forgot I owned this. I’m not big on contouring but I’ve decided to give it another go and I don’t think I’d ever use anything else. It includes a silky matte contour powder that blends like a dream and a stunning illuminating highlighter to add a natural glow. The shades are the perfect match for pale skin!
In this month’s Birchbox, they gave us the chance to try out a product from their new in house beauty line, LOC. The LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Champagne Problems is stunning and I’ve been wearing it a lot this month as it just makes life so much easier, just one swipe and you’re done. No need to blend with brushes so if you’re in a rush, it’s perfect! It also lasts really well without primer.
Back in January, I managed to pick up the beautiful Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Essentials Set on sale from £64 down to £25 which was an amazing bargain and I’m so glad I bought them. Not only are they beautiful, they work well too. My favourite has to be the 300 Tapered Blush brush which offers flawless application of blush and highlighter.
A skincare item I’ve been loving this month is the Codage Paris Eclat & Energie serum which I’ve been able to try thanks to the Look Fantastic Beauty Box.. this serum is incredible and has become an essential in my skincare routine. It’s specially formulated to banish fatigue and ageing in tired dull skin and it does exactly that, my skin looks so radiant after use. I just wish it wasn’t so pricey!
The last item is my gorgeous Pandora bracelet that I got from my best friend at Christmas. I just adore this so much, everything about it is so thoughtful. I love that Pandora charms signify something special such as the Paw charm for my three dogs and the best friend charm that was bought along with the bracelet. I can’t wait until I can add some more charms as it does look a little bare at the moment!
