Hey lovelies, it’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a blog post for you guys! I’m still trying to get into a routine of being able to go to work, clean the house and find time to write but I’m slowly getting there (I hope).
With the beauty industry constantly changing and new products being released practically every day it’s no surprise really that us beauty lovers favourite products are constantly changing too. As I haven’t been able to put up a monthly favourites post for a while I thought I’d share the products I’m loving at the minute with you all!
Pixi Glow Tonic
I heard SO many bloggers talk about Pixi Glow Tonic and 99% of those people absolutely loved it so when it finally came to Boots I thought I’d pick up one of the small bottles to test… let me tell you it was the best decision I’ve ever made!
I’ve been using the Pixi Glow Tonic as part of my everyday skincare routine along with a lot of the Revolution Skincare products (post coming soon) and it’s really helped. I hardly ever get any spots now and when I do they are gone within a day or two using this, I can’t recommend it enough, it’s such a good exfoliating toner!
Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover
I’m sure you’ve all seen the TV advert for the Nivea eye makeup remover, the girl wipes her really dark eye makeup with a cotton pad covered in this and it’s gone within seconds? This was a product I was really dubious about when I first purchased it because I was sure it wouldn’t be THAT easy but I was actually super impressed with it.
Don’t get me wrong you do still have to work with this product and rub at the cotton pad a little to get all of your mascara off but it’s nothing like having to scrub at your eyes leaving them sore and red like some products. This has become a staple in my skincare collection now and I never remove my makeup without it, it’s made my life so much easier and it definitely does the job quicker than using makeup wipes!
Revolution Pro Foundation Drops
I did a full review on the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops here if you’re interested in how they perform but this has become one of my favourite foundations at the minute! I own about 20 foundations but recently every time I pull out my collection it always seems to be this I’m reaching for which has to be a good sign doesn’t it?
This product blends so quickly and easily onto my skin that it makes it great for days when I’m in a rush. Also, with the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately it’s perfect because it’s really lightweight so you can barely feel it on your skin but it still gives a nice coverage!
This is the foundation that will be coming abroad with me in a few weeks too which shows how amazing it is if I’m trusting it for a week when I’ll have no other options right?!
Wet N Wild Colour Icon Bronzer
This bronzer from Wet N Wild has become another favourite due to the heatwave we’ve had the past few days! I’m naturally as pale as a milk bottle so I really struggle to find bronzers which match my skin tone without making me look too muddy, I have this in the shade ‘Ticket To Brazil’ but they actually do an even lighter one if you’re paler than me!
I love this bronzer because it applies beautifully on my skin and doesn’t take a lot of blending but it leaves me with a lovely sun-kissed glow! I purchased mine from Beauty Bay when I tested a whole face of Wet N Wild makeup but their products are actually stocked in a lot of Boots stores now too so I’d definitely recommend picking one up if you see them!
L’Oreal Infallible More Than Concealer
The final product in my current beauty favourites is a pretty new purchase and it’s the L’Oreal Infallible concealer, the foundation in this range used to be my absolute holy grail so when they re-released it with concealers too I knew I had to try them.
Previously I wore their lightest foundation shade ‘015 Porcelain’ but it was a little too light for me so I actually went up a shade this time and got ’20 Ivory’ but I still got a lighter concealer ‘321 Eggshell’ in the hopes it would be light enough to brighten my under eyes.
I am SO happy with this concealer, it gives a very full coverage and it is the first concealer I’ve ever found which is light enough to give me that ‘under eye brightness’ when I wear it with the Infallible foundation. The shade I have in the concealer isn’t the lightest either, there is another which is one shade lighter so if you’re pale skinned like me I cannot recommend this range enough!
So there you have it, my current beauty favourites! I haven’t purchased much new makeup recently because bills are obviously the priority now but please let me know in the comments what your favourite products are at the minute and if there is anything I should pick up!
Until next time,
