Five Things I love – February 2018

February Favourites 2018PIN IT

I can’t believe it’s March already – this is horrifying.  I still feel the need to wish people a “Happy New Year.” I honestly feel like I just wrote the January Love List (although I was a bit late with it, so maybe that’s why) but now it’s time for the February one too.  I found February a lot easier to write as there were some stand out products that came to my beauty rescue.

It’s been a slow month for make-up, so I’ve mostly been sticking with trusted favourites with nothing majorly new appearing, other than the very exciting new Benefit Bad Gal Bang (£21.50 here – link) (full review here), which is such a fantastic mascara that’s a joy to use and really does give you ‘wow’ lashes.  The Beautiful Real Techniques Brush Crush (full range here – link) (full review here) brushes are also another highlight, with the 304 Fan brush becoming an absolute essential for adding a really natural glow with powder highlighters.

On to skincare…oh look! It’s Omorovicza again.  I cannot get enough of this brand as they do such effective products that are indulgent, luxurious and just fabulous.  The Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask (£90 here – link) (review here) has appeared in favourites before, but it’s here again as it’s just the best product for when you really can’t face a skincare routine as this does it all; just cleanse, then bung it on, no need for exfoliating toner, serum or moisturiser as this performs all three tasks. It’s amazing. A new member of my regular skincare routine is the Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Plumping Daily Booster (currently on special down from £22 to £16,50 here – link) which is a wonderfully hydrating serum that gives skin just enough hydration without leaving it feeling flooded or greasy – it sinks in quickly and removes tightness and dryness brilliantly; full review soon.

Finally, the oh-so-pretty L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Co. Hand Cream is giving me all the joy at bed time, as not only is it lovely to look at, it’s a fantastic night time hand cream too, that gives that rich, buttery hydration that you need in the Winter months – at the moment I’m doing a lot of cleaning and being rather rubbish at protecting my hands, so I need all the help I can get, and this hand cream is doing wonderful things, making me feel a lot less guilty about my raggedy cuticles and sore knuckles.  Check out my full review here and the lovely and large hand cream is here – link.

    The Vichy Mineral Booster looks so cool and interesting in the bottle! I’m tempted to buy it simply because of the novelty.
