Monthly Favourites: October


I could kick myself sometimes, I'm such a bad blogger. Life got a bit hectic and all of a sudden, the blogging mojo was gone. Anyway I am back and I will not be straying. You lovely readers have my undivided attention so lets kick it off with my October favourites.

Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil That's a mouthful. When I first bought some of the Una Brennan skincare products I was disappointed, I knew many bloggers loved them so automatically thought I would but to no avail, I didn't so I chucked this cleansing oil to one side and totally neglected it. Having run out of my Elemis Cleansing Balm, I knew before I could buy a new cleanser I'd have to use up my stash. A tiny bit of this cleansing oil rubbed together in my hands and massaged all over my skin melts make up off instantly and leaves my skin thoroughly cleansed and super soft. The scent is oranges is divine and very freshing for that 7am cleanse.

CND Shellac Polish in Pink Bikini A beautiful bright pink albeit totally unseasonal but gorgeous nevertheless. I've recently bought myself all the gear to do Shellac and I've not yet gone back to ordinary polish. Long gone are the hours of waiting for polish to dry. A full set of polished nails takes about 30-40 minutes and lasts 2 weeks chip free. I am a fully fledged Shellac convert.

Quinoderm 5% Cream My skin has been so temperamental last month, I've been spotty, dry, flakey, dehydrated so my skin has never looked so bad but my main concern was spots. I have some hormonal blemishes and pesky under the skin spots on my forehead that I was desperate to get rid of. I picked up this cream at work after hearing some recommendations from the pharmacist and I'm so glad I did. A little goes a long way and this can be very drying on the skin, but used in the appropriate places, blemishes are dramatically reduced and healing time is cut much shorter.

Make Believe Enhance Sunbeam Bronzer I won this in a giveaway ages ago and it was sat in my stash. My beloved Nars Laguna has nearly come to an end and to prolong its life, I've dug this out and been using it as my daily bronzer. This bronzer is very similar to Nars Laguna, more of brown undertone than orange and a finely milled powder so a little dusting gives me a sunkissed golden glow without looking too OTT. Now it's not as good as the Nars Laguna but it fills the bronze shaped holes in my life... For now at least.

What are you October favourites?

  4. I'm thinking of buying that cleansing oil, and using it in my Rose Hydrate oil's bottle because I know if I try to use it without a pump it would probably spill everywhere!

    1. I thought that too. You only need the tiniest bit but even if you did spill it, it's not like it's overly expensive xx

    1. I would recommend this cleanser and their cleansing mask but avoid the vitamin c range, it's a waste of money xx
