Current Favourites

 It's been a good while since I last shared a 'monthly favourites' with you guys, although to be completely honest, these days I don't try enough products to justify posting one every four weeks! However after receiving a few goodies for Christmas and treating myself in the sales I couldn't wait to share my current loves with you guys!

Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (£8.00/250ml) - Containing 'weet almond oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil and cocoa & shea butters and fragranced with delectable pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla' This is one of my favourite scents which Soap & Glory have to offer. This shower butter reminds an awful lot me of the wonderful Smoothie star body milk and has a smell which resembles cakes! I'm unsure If I'd buy this again as £8 is a lot for what is essentially a shower gel, however was a lovely treat!

Simple Moisturising Facial Wash (£3.49/150ml) - When I was home for Christmas I sneakily managed to finish one of these off as I forgot my own face wash and enjoyed using it so much that I picked up another. I cant quite put my finger on why I loved this so much, however it does a fab job at cleansing my face and works a lot better than products three times the price. A great little budget buy in my opinion.

Origins Out of Trouble Face Mask (£23.00/100ml) - In the Christmas sales I managed to bag three Origins masks for £20. My favourite of which happens to be 'out of trouble' which is ideal for when your skin isn't at its clearest as this mask helps to calm my skin down. My last tube lasted me ages so I'm hoping this one does too as it  has become a complete must have over the past few weeks. 
Benefit Benebalm (£14.50) - I managed to pick this up along with lolibalm and two tints in the sales for £13! While I think this was a fab price for the duo, I don't think I'd have paid £14.50 for a single balm. I have however really enjoyed using them, especially Benebalm which offers more colour to the lips making it a firm favourite this month and something I hope to review very soon.

Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks (£8.00) - I don't actually have a specific shade favourite when it comes to these crayons as I own three and tend to grab whatever is closest.  I do however really enjoy wearing them and have been reaching for them a lot in the past few weeks. I wont give too much away now as these are something I really want to review of you guys, but I will say that these give a wonderful glossy pop of colour without any stickiness and are possibly my favourite crayon product on the high street.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (£19.00) - I absolute hated this product when I first tried it, however now its been open for a while and the formula has dried a bit I have truly come to love it. This gives one of the best 'false lash looks' on the market and I love the effect it has on my lashes.

Yankee Candles - The Christmas cookie sampler pictured above is to represent the love affair I'm currently having with Yankee as a brand. I'm currently making my way through a mountain of samplers and wax tarts, along with three large glass jars as I was a very lucky girl for Christmas. Lately I've been burning Christmas Cookie which was a lovely gift, although I'm looking forward to trying Candy Cane Lane, which I just picked up in the sales with 50% off!

What have you been loving recently?

  1. Years ago I used to love the S&G Shower Butter I'm not sure why I forgot about it over the years as it's such a lovely product smells really nice too :). The Too Faced mascara looks interesting though :D xx
