Five Things I Love (September 2013)


I’m still being fairly sporadic with my Love Lists as I think I mentioned in the last one (July 2013) that I started to find them a bit of a hassle, so when I fancy doing one, you’ll see it here.  This month is quite a good mix of skincare, make-up and fragrance.  Nothing makes me feel more fickle than doing a list like this as if I were to put it together again right now, it’d probably be slightly different…however, as it stood in September, these are the five products I was loving:

Stila All You Need is Love blush


A pink blusher with a Beatles song in the title? It’s as if this was designed with me in mind.  I haven’t actually reviewed this yet as the finish is quite different once the gold overlay is used up, so I wanted to take snaps that showed the true c0lour of the blush shades themselves, which are beautifully pink in that ‘flushed from a run’ finish that so many brands try to emulate and very few succeed with.  This is so reasonably priced at £12 and will last ages due to being a very decent size; I will review this fully soon, but in the meantime, head to Stila to find out more – link.

Roses de Chloe EDT


Of all the beautiful fragrances I’ve been sent lately, this is the one I’m finding myself reaching for the most.  It’s so easy; it isn’t making any huge statements and it’s just a pretty, girly, floral fragrance that I still cannot get enough of.  Check out my original review here.

Biologique Recherche P50W


There are two standout products for spot-fighting from BR that I’m currently using; the P50 lotion and the mask which I’ll be reviewing soon.  The P50 lotions are the most famous from the BR line and for very good reason as they’re just so obviously effective and work extremely quickly on tricky skin like mine.  I’m using quite a few BR products which you can read about here.

Boots No7 Eyeshadow Trio in Good Earth


This had to be included even though it isn’t the most exciting product, purely due to the fact that I think it’s one of those staple sets that should feature in all make-up kits.  Put it this way, if someone turned up at my door one day and said they wanted to start wearing make-up, what should they start with, this would definitely be a product I’d recommend as the colours work both independently and as a base for other looks.  Here’s my review.

Konjac Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal


Yes, I’m sure you were shocked, *shocked* to find a Konjac Sponge appear in my love list…my addiction continues (seriously, even just writing this means I’m going to have to go and work one over my face; it has to be the pregnancy doesn’t it? As this is just too strange) and I’m still loving using mine several times a day.  I’m actually using a lot of masks lately, and I’m pleased to say that they work just as brilliantly on really tough, dried-on clay masks that are usually a nightmare to remove.  Here’s my original, long and rambling review and here you will find five additional uses for Konjac Sponges.
