February Favourites

Swatches from left to right - Maxfactor Rosewood, KIKO 112 / Pearly Desert Rose, KIKO 208, Revolution Peachy Lights 

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish | £20.75 150 ml pump + two mulin cloths
Ok, so this isn't a new product to me and if you've been reading my blog or following me on twitter you will know that this is a staple in my skin care routine. I use it daily and repurchase it every couple of months when it runs out. This however is a Rose and Cedrat scented limited edition which is new and i have never used before, the smell is really lovely and the rose isn't over powering in the slightest. The formula is still classic Liz Earle Cleanser and Polish but with a floral twist.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water | £20.00 116ml
I was so excited when i received this for Christmas. I have never tried any setting sprays so was eager to give this Smashbox product a go. What i love most about this product is how versatile it is, you can either use it before make-up as a primer, after make-up as a setting spray or you can even use it to refresh your make-up throughout the day and wake yourself up. I think i might actually like this better then silicone based primer and it really locks in any product I'm wearing.

Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter | £25.00 200 ml

I also received this for Christmas and it's another product i now religiously swear by. I'm pretty sure i had an allergic reaction to trying the Glam Glow cleanser, my skin was SO sore and i now look like a scaly lizard.. which is pretty fantastic! Anyway, I've been smothering this on my face as it's scent free and thought there was no way i could make it any worse. It's worked really well and my skin appears to be improving daily! It's quite a pricey product, but you do receive a huge amount for your money and it feels really high end.

Mintycoco Oil Pulling* | £19.99 14 day supply

Having been a brace wearer and also a smoker for many years, my teeth could be whiter. They aren't super brown, but i would love to lighten them a few shades - so when i got the opportunity to review these oil pulling sachets i jumped at the chance. I've really been loving these in February, I don't want to give way to many details as i will be giving an in-depth blog post on these soon.. however my teeth are already whiter and looking great

KIKO Supergloss in 112 / Pearly Desert Rose | £4.90
I bought this when i was in Paris last year and have really been loving the gold shimmer it adds to a matte lipstick. It doesn't have the best staying power, but it's not sticky at all which is a huge plus for me! I don't mind re-applying a few times a day in order to avoid horrendous sticky lipgloss, i really love the colour and it was super cheap.

Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Rosewood | £7.99
Ok ok, so hands up who also bought this lipstick just because it was the town name of their favourite TV show?! I'm really glad i did though as I've been wearing it non stop, it's a beautiful dusky rose colour and looks gorgeous with a gold / bronze smokey eye! The staying power is fantastic and it's really pigmented. I really love this lipstick and i think i might pick up a few more!

KIKO 208 Watershadow | £8.90
URGHHHHHHH, can we PLEASE just take a moment to see the absolute beauty of this product? It's so beautiful, i can't even deal. This 208 water shadow has been the bane of my life for about half a year, it's always sold out as it's a dupe for MAC Whisper of Gilt. When me and LWFS saw this in Paris we both bought one and potentially got over excited about the prospect of looking as glowy as the sun.. It is INSANELY pigmented and really does look like a dream. If you want to turn up the intensity of the product you can even use it wet.

The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter | £14.00 200ml
Because as I've mentioned above my horrific dry skin, i have also been loving the body shop coconut body butter. Coconut is one of my favourite scents and this keeps me hydrated all day long with a gorgeous lingering smell.


Revolution Peach Lights | £3.00
I picked this up on one of my mad Superdrug dashes where i wanted to buy everything. I had heard a few reviews of this highlighter saying that it was good so i thought at £3 i couldn't really say no. First of all the quality and the amount of product you get for £3 is insane, this is by far one of my favourite highlighters and has quickly become an everyday staple for me (Yessss.. don't judge me i just like to be glowy and highlighted.. even at work) It gives a really gorgeous pink highlight to my cheek bones and it suits my fair skin perfectly. They also have another two shades.. and i really want to try the golden light!

  1. You've made me want to try Kiko even more now. SO many people are going nuts on how affordable and high quality all the products are. Also mega jealous you've got that primer water! I don't think I can budget spending 20 quid on it but so nice to receive it as a gift. I'll find some sort of excuse to be able to get it and not feel so guilty.

    Great post,
