February Favourites

This month I've stumbled across some really gorgeous products (as well as enjoying some that I've had in my stash for a while). Boiling it down to my favourites was really difficult but I managed to pick seven products that I really couldn't have gone without this month.

MaxFactor's Clump Defy Mascara is just amazing, I really love it and it has very quickly become my absolute favourite mascaras. I've got an in depth review post on it coming up soon so if you're interesting in reading about it keep your eyes peeled for that! On my lips I've been wearing Lush's The Kiss Lip Gloss which is actually feels a lot more like a balm on the lips. It's a lovely pearlescent pink shade and it provides fantastic moisturisation. The other lip product I've been really loving is 17's Mirror Shine Lipstick in the shade Shouty. I can't get enough of this lipstick's formula, it is just the perfect sheer lipstick, and Shouty is a really wearable bright pink. This is another product that I'll be reviewing soon (along with a couple of other shades that I couldn't help but pick up). 

To keep my skin soft and hydrated I've been using Nivea's Firming Body Oil. I haven't really noticed any firming benefits but I have really loved how moisturised my skin feels after I use it- especially as it only cost me about £3.50 (which is a lot cheaper than the Weleda body oil I used up before this). On my hands I've been using L'Occitane's Honey Hand Cream* and couldn't recommend it more! It is a gorgeous product and has completely transformed my dry skin, plus the scent is fantastic. I've suffered from a few break outs this month (which I think was to do with changing my cleanser). I was very kindly sent a bottle of Skinetica* to try and I have found that it rapidly improves the appearance of blemishes and spots, a godsend when you're suffering from regular breakouts! And lastly, my final favourite this month is a product I received for Christmas, the Body Shop's Atlas Mountain Rose Eau de Toilette*. It's a gorgeous rose fragrance that feels very spring appropriate, I'd definitely recommend it.

So, those were my favourites this month! What product couldn't you have lived without this month?
