Currently Loving | May Favourites.






I've had a lot more than my fair share of hauling, and have found so many products that i am obsessed with! And thanks to the youtube community, came the idea to summarise all my favourites in a monthly blog post. 

First up is no surprise the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Mask (review here). My skin has been through hell and back but this has given it the little boost it's needed. Whilst in the shower, i just smooth this onto face to create a rich later and leave it on for about 5-10 minutes. I normally do this whilst i leave treatment to soak into my hair, two birds one stone. Then i just rinse this off and my skin is left feeling tightened, after a quick pat dry my face looks healthy and radiant. I love to use this when I'm feeling a bit dull and tired, it literally brightens my day!

On the subject of brightening, i recently went to the body shop and picked up something from their new Vitamin C skincare range (haul here). This hasn't been a monthly favourite but i have used it several times a day without fail, i am hooked! And wow was i blown away, the Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz has been fighting my dull skin for the past week or so. It brightens my face by leaving it refreshed and alive. This just pop's into my handbag and i can top up on the go when i need it. I've found that it works well on top of makeup and leaves my skin looking fresh and dewy. I recently mentioned this product doing exactly that in My Casual Summer Look post. 

This month i have been sticking with the healthy skin look and using the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle. A peachy bronze highlight that adds a natural glow to your skin. This is perfect for adding the perfect finish to a natural makeup look, i have been using in non stop for years and it's still one of my favourites. Watch this space a full review and my dedicating words of wisdom to come soon. 

I have something to admit, and it's not easy. But up until last month i had never tried a single product from bareMinerals. I know i know, shame on me. To be honest i am not a powder girl, i have a great fear of the cake face and won't touch it. However baby steps are being taken after the bareMinerals Eye Shadow in Precious came my way. Of course i use powder eye shadows all the time, but it's the formula of this product that astounded me. It's application was light and glided onto my lid like silk. Without turning this post fifty shades, the colour payoff was vivid and stayed on my lid all day. After such a great result i am going straight to the bareMinerals counter on payday to see what other knee trembling goodies they have!  

My nails have been a tad dry recently and my cuticles seem to grow at rapid pace. So i turned to good ol' Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover. I just popped a little bit around the edge of my nails and leave this to do it's thaaang for a few seconds. Then i just push them back and trim off the remains. Salon perfect cuticles in a matter of minutes. After using this i normally turn to my favourite nail polish at the moment, Chanel Nail Colour in Holiday. I haven't written a full review on this yet but it has been mentioned in a post here. Just to sum it up, if you are looking for a summer polish that gets all the attention, look no further. This blood orange shade has given me so many compliment's it's unreal. not to mention, even in this British weather i always feel like I'm going on holiday whenever i put it on. 

What products have you been loving through May? Do you have any products that you use to give your skin that healthy glow?
