October Favourites


Hello there! It's that time again, oh how I do love a good monthly favourites post! I realise I haven't posted one in absolutely ages, but I thought maybe the start of the new season would be a good time to jump back in. I've got a little mix of hair a beauty products here - all from the high street. Please excuse the poor quality of my photos, I haven't had a camera for a couple of days so I've had to use my trusty ole iPhone!  I've linked all the products below so you can see where I got them: 

As much I love trying out new products, I have been attempting to simplify my skincare routine as much as possible lately by cutting it down to a cleanser, scrub and moisturizer. Oh and maybe a face mask once or twice a week! I'm really loving the Botanics All Bright range right now, the scrub is nice and gentle and my face looks and feels so much better after just a few days. I've also swapped my foundation from a heavier liquid to a lighter matte foundation. The Clinque stay matte foundation has great coverage yet it still feels very light on my skin. I wear Linen 01 which is the lightest shade Clinique offer. 

Next up, I treated myself to this incredible eye shadow pallete from No7 and I can't get over how nice it is! It includes 20 of the most popular No7 shades, from light to dark,10 matte and 10 shimmering. I just know I'm going to use up every single one of them! The palette itself is actually pretty huge, but still slim and light enough to slip into a handbag. I've already mentioned my love for the Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks, but hey, I'll say it again - these are hands down some of the best lipsticks I've ever used! The lipstick is very easy to apply, the colours are so vibrant and it stays on all day. Perfection! 

Last but not least, the lovely Lily from Old Wives Tail sent me this gorgeous handmade organic hair treatment. I simply leave it in my hair like a hair mask (sometimes over night) and rinse it out. It takes my dry ends and leaves them feeling restored and silky smooth. It also smells incredible! I have also been using the Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil range (available in Boots) in my hair, and I can't recommend it enough. My hair feels healthier than it has in years and the bottles last for ages too. You can find out more about all the products Old Wives Tail by clicking here!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my October favourites!
