February Beauty Favourites!

When looking around to see which products I have been loving this month I noticed there wasn't that many, some things i'm still loving from last month but there have been a few stand out products I have to share with you. 
Only one skincare favourite this month which is the REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate has stood out to me. It's similar to the Alpha H Liquid Gold but I think I prefer it, it doesn't feel as harsh but makes my skin look so fresh, glowing and helps with redness. Full review to comes soon. I'm still loving my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua but i've been loving a new release which is the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation (review). It's feels so light has a good light to medium coverage, is buildable, makes my skin look lovely and lasts a good amount of time. For me it ticks all the boxes. 
For eyes i've been wearing pretty much the same smokey eye look all month. Starting with MAC Groundwork Paint Pot which I love, on top of the MAC Soba eyeshadow which is a golden brown colour with a slight shimmer and the two work so well together. For mascara i've been enjoying the Rimmel Accelerator Endless Mascara (review) which defines my lashes and adds volume. It can look a little clumpy but it is very black which I really like. 
For the first half of the month i rediscovered MAC Desert Rose, which is a matte dusky pink shade that gives a lovely just been out in the cold look to the cheeks. For the end of the month I was craving coral cheeks so dug out Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels, with is a cream to powder finish and adds a lovely warmth of coral to the cheeks.

For nails i've been loving Essie Tour De Finance again, it's a lovely fuchsia colour with a blue shimmer going through it. I've also been loving Barry M Gelly High Shine in Blueberry, which is a lovely pastel blue shade that wears amazing on the nails, I got a good 7 days without chipping!
Finally some body products, first Natural Collection Passionfruit Body Spray which has a lovely fruity scent but actually smells grown up and more expensive than it is. It's a great refresher spray that goes with a lot of perfumes too. The other being The Body Shop Body Butter Duo in Vanilla, this smells lovely and has really helped to moisturise my skin. I love that it has both a lotion and a body butter in it too.
So those have been my favourite products this month, what have been some of your favourites?


  1. I need to get a new body shop butter, I usually go for coconut but I might try this vanilla one next!
