So i’ve been MIA for the last month or so, what with exam stress and life in general getting in the way, it’s meant that i’ve abandoned my little blog for what seems like too long. Hence why now I thought it’d be a good chance you bring you lovely lot all up to speed with some of the things that i’ve been loving lately.
Let’s start with skincare shall we, and i’m not sure whether or not i’ve mentioned this first product on my blog before. It’s the Garnier Moisture + Matte Moisturiser from their Moisture Match range. My skin tends to be on the combination side, with dry patches appearing here and there I can’t skip the moisturiser step in the mornings. However, my T-Zone tends to get very oily throughout the day, so I can’t be dealing with greasy products emphasising the oiliness. That’s why I love this product. It hydrates the skin but leaves it feeling matte, making a great base for foundation.
Micellar Water’s seem to be the talk of the blogging/youtubing beauty community as of late, and i’m no stranger to their makeup removing and cleansing abilities. The Garnier one has always been a favourite of mine, so when I saw that they came out with a green version (targeting at combination and sensitive skin) I was all for giving it a try. Not going to lie, it doesn’t seem to be much different than the original for me, both doing a great job at removing my makeup. However, still one i’m obsessed with and one that’s well worth the try if you haven’t already.
I love nothing better than a good old hand cream, so when i saw that Marie Claire had Neal’s Yard’s Geranium and Orange hand cream free in their May Issue, I went straight down to Tesco to pick up my own copy. This is probably the most gorgeous scent, one that leaves you relaxed and feeling like you’ve just come back from the spa. Not to mention the cream itself leaves your hands smooth and soft. Love this one.
Makeup time, and one to one of my favourite discoveries probably of the year. I’m talking Mac’s Patisserie Lipstick. This is the perfect nude on my skin tone and one which goes with anything you throw at it. Defiantly a new staple in my collection.
New foundation alert..well new to me anyway. Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Nude is one that I picked up fairly recently and one that i’ve been giving a go for the last week or so. So far so good. I love the finish it gives to the skin, medium coverage but still looking natural and slightly dewy. I’ll keep you updated!
And last but not least is a Barry M Jelly High shine. In the shade Sugar Plum, this is probably the most gorgeous bubblegum pink shade I have ever come across, and what’s more, it’s in my favourite nail polish formula of all time. I can already tell that this is one that I’m going to constantly be wearing on my nails this summer.
What are you current favourites? I would love to know and maybe try out for myself!
