Current Beauty Favourites!

current beauty favourites!

Hey people, I hope everyone is doing great. Can you imagine it’s almost the end of January? This post will be for my product junkies! As the title suggests, I will be talking about my current beauty products which are the products I have been reaching for the most this month with mini reviews with where to purchase

Let’s get started

Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes, £1 (on sale) from Superdrug

superdrug micellar wipes

You guys know I am obsessed with micellar water for removing makeup (did you read the micellar water post? Catch it here) but I find they hardly last – one bottle lasts me two weeks lol. So I have now switched to micellar cleansing wipes. I bought this one on impulse- it was on sale for £1 and I decided why not? And I am so glad I did!  It removes everything and feels really soft and gentle on the skin! (I even went back to purchase more: it’s now buy 1 get 1 free!!! Thank me later)

Ultrasun Face 50+ SPF, £34.52 from QVC

ultrasun 50 spf

Its winter and I have dark skin, do I really need that high of a SPF? Yes! Dark skin or not, summer or winter, skin needs protection all year round! Maybe I don’t need a very high SPF but I really love this one because it has anti pigmentation properties. This is perfect as I am working to get an even skin tone and on hyperpigmentation and it is imperative I use SPF!  I got this in my goody bag from the QVC ss16 event in November last year and I have been using it ever since! It’s a bit tricky to use because it leaves a white cast on my face lol but I always use it on top of  my Sukin Rosehip oil day cream ( which hasn’t got spf) before I apply my foundation.

Dr Dennis Gross extra strength alpha beta peel, £15 from Cult Beauty

Another favourite from the QVC ss16 goody bag. I have recently used one treatment and I loved how my skin felt afterwards! I will definitely be reviewing this once I finish the pack. I got the 3 pack treatment but you get the 5 pack treatment from Cult Beauty. Watch this space!

Face Brush, £1 from Primark

I love this brush for many reasons: it’s cheap, double sided and gets the job done lol. I use to it apply my face wash (currently using Lush Coal face soap, did you read my epic LUSH series? Search for lush on my blog for all the LUSH goodness!).  The bristles are not hard and it gives a gentle deep pore wash. The pink side can be used as a massager

Rogue by Rihanna EDP, £43 from Boots

I LOVE this perfume! I hardly ever get a perfume twice or buy a bigger size ( perfume collection on fleek) but I run out of my smaller bottle and seeing I loved it so much, I was gifted it for Christmas! This perfume is everything! Perfect for everyday and every occasion! And I always get compliments when I wear this too, basically you guys need this perfume!

George contour kit, £4 from George

Blogger box swap

I love the highlighter shade in this kit! I got it in my blogger box swap (read it here) and I have been using it ever since. The contour shade is way too light so I don’t bother with that but this highlighter!! I do have to be careful and use a light hand as too much can look chalky but it looks really beautiful on.

Sleek Luminous pressed powder, £7 from Sleek

I got this during their 50% off sale (girl you missed out if you didn’t take advantage lol) and I am so glad I did! It looks very shimmery but you don’t get all the glitter on your face when you set your whole face with it. It gives a subtle glow and looks very nice on. Lately I have been using it as a base for other highlighters (I’m all about that glow!)

Sleek Bronze block, £7.49 from Sleek

Another steal form their 50% from sale! The powder really warms up your face and that pink hue looks amazing as a blush alone! I usually swirl the colours together and use on my cheeks and down my nose.

L.A girl orange corrector, £ 3.99 from Beauty by Zara

corrector

Suffering from hyper pigmentation means colour correcting and this cheap and cheerful one does the trick! It’s very orange so it’s best to be used lightly but it does a very good job of cancelling out greyness/darkness. Orange correctors are perfect for darker skin tones!

 

That’s all folks! Which products are you absolutely loving at the moment?
