June Favourites 2019

If you've been with me a while, you'll remember I used to do a favourites list each month that would focus on the five products I favoured most of all, but I recently decided to lift that limit so I could include more of the things I love.  Today, I regret that, as my June 2019 Favourites list is huge! There have been so many great products making their way into my regular routine, so I had to share them all.  Get comfy, this is a long one...[...]

May Favourites (2019)

Disclaimer: Some PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature. May was a mega beauty month for me, with lots of new favourite slotting into my routine, as well as the rediscovery of some older stars, which is why this'll probably be quite a long post! Kicking off with skincare, the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (£15) has been in my collection for a while, but it's only recently that I've started using it so regularly[...]

March Favourites (2019)

*PR Samples/Personal Purchases/Aff.Links* [lookbook id="25953" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] As you can see in the picture above, I've had a lot of things to love in March - all nine of them! There have been some real standout favourites in both skincare and make-up, so let's get right to it: I've been really enjoying the Rita Rakus Daily Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF50 (although I still have no idea why they refer to[...]

Love List – October 2018

I'm still pretty sporadic with my Love List features, but in October there were a few products that really did it for me, so it was easy for me to put together a list of favourites.  I've lifted my five product limit for my love lists which means I don't have to narrow it down and I can waffle away about any and all of my monthly favourites, which is what I'm planning to do now... The ELF Hydrating Booster Drops (£10 here - link) are a pe[...]

July Love List

I mentioned in my last Love List post that I would be removing my five product limit, so here we have my very first Love List with as many products as I fancy! The July Love List is a mix of skincare and make-up, with a few old favourites and a couple of new loves: Starting with skincare, the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream (£36.95 here - link - here's my original review) was a product I quite liked to start with, but it ar[...]

Love List: May 2018

I've been posting my Love Lists on and off since I started this blog seven years ago, and I always called them "Five Things I Love" with the idea being that I pick my five favourite things from that month...I realise that's probably pretty self-explanatory, but still.  I've decided from this month forward I'll remove the limits and include as many or as few products as I like each month, as I keep finding myself having to narrow it down.  I've s[...]

Five Things I Love – April 2018

I'm a little late with my April Love List but I figured better late than never.  My favourites for April were pretty obvious as there are definitely a few products I've been reaching for more than others.  I did struggle to narrow it down as there were a few more I was loving, but they're still new to my routine, so if it's still the case by May then they'll probably show up then.  Anyway! Here are my April favourites: I've been so impre[...]

Five Things I love – February 2018

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 stick[...]

Five Things I Love: January 2018

I'm a little late with my January Love List, and, predictably, it's skincare heavy, since my spots are now gone and I'm revisiting the joy that is trying new and exciting skincare that isn't necessarily for getting rid of spots.  These are the products I was reaching for most last month: Predictably, the Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream got lots of use as it's such a lovely product that gives just the right amount of hydration without[...]

Five Things I Love – September 2017

I thought I'd better publish my September love list before it gets a bit too far into October for it to count.  It's been really easy to work out my favourites for September as there were some very clear winners - these are the things I've been reaching for most of all, with some total finds in both skincare and make-up. Starting with the two skincare items, both of which I have reviewed already.  The Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Face Mas[...]

Five Things I Love: June 2017

My favourites for this month have a few bits that I don't think I've mentioned at all, either on here or on Instagram and/or Twitter; I put a lot of thought into my favourites for June (I often just look at my beauty table and work out what I've been reaching for most or what has got me most excited) but over the past few weeks a few products have really stuck out for me, so here they are: Oh look, it's Oxygenetix again! There have been so[...]
