Favourites I’ve Loved In February 2014

Affiliate links used help me to keep my blog running at no cost to my reader.

I’ll apologise now for how late that my favourites are only just going up now but I promise there shouldn’t be any big breaks for a while.These favourites are a little obvious with the release of those matte balms and my love of The Body Shop but I just kept coming back to these in particular. I’ve been trying to take better care of my hair this month and I’m considering trying the Lush Henna again.

Febuary 2014 Favourites

Dove Nourishing Oil Care

This is a fantastic light weight bio phase spray leave in oil now that’s a bit of a mouth full. It’s one of my favourites because it smells fab to the point of spraying it just to add the scent to my hair and really makes my hair feel like I’ve not completely wrecked it. It’s not a miracle worker but I can feel the difference this has made and would love to try out the other version for coloured hair.It helps keep those dry ends from looking so frizzy and smooths then down.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner

As you can see it’s almost empty and this for me has really helped keep my skin clear and I went into more detail here. It makes my skin tingle a bit but not anything I have worried over as it’s really helped with spots. Only minor annoyance is the residue that you have to shake each morning to get it to mix back in to the liquid, bearing that in mind I’ve already repurchased a new one.

Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm in Sultry

There has been a divide in the blogging world over these balms. Some hate the and some like me just think they will be one of my long time favourites. I’ve bought one of the less bright shades which for me is more wearable. If you’ve read about lipsticks from me you know I have a love for mattes. These go on very easily and this lasts around 4 hours before I can see signs of wear , yes the balm dries out but mattes tend too these just take a bit longer. I hope they bring out more easy wear shades rather than those crazy bright ones as they are so easy and quick to apply. See a sneak preview when I first got mine here.

Laura Mercier Longwear Creme Eye Pencil

I’m still working on getting these to do more than just my waterline but the shade Espresso has become a great way of keeping my love of liner going while toning it down at the same time. They are really creamy and last most of the day but I’m trying to wear it above the line as when I swatch them on my had it really is smudge proof I just haven’t got the technique right yet.

Neutrogena Nourishing Lip Care with Nordic Berry

A very thick balm consistency with a nice natural berry scent that has become part of my morning routine. The hydration lasts much longer than my Nivea Hydro Care that I use at work and I prefer the berry scent to the classic Nivea one. Great for applying before I start putting make up on as it really softens the lips before I add colour to them.

Revlon Cream Blush in Charmed

I had a moment in Boots 3 for 2 when I didn’t know what to get as a third when it was just on Revlon and I ended up getting this. It’s the first cream blush I own and it’s one of those product where It would be near impossible to over apply unless you scooped it out. I can just dab my finger tip into it and take my time applying where I want it but can be blended out easily if you do go wrong. Only issue is I don’t much like the other two shades available and wish they had more choice. Charmed is a natural flushed shade in a satin finish.

My empties will be appearing in a few days if you like seeing what I’ve been using up this month, hope you have a lovely relaxing Sunday.
