May Beauty Favourites!

May has been a busy month with exams, finishing my 2nd year of Uni (eek!) and decorating my bedroom but whilst all that has been going on i've had a few stand out products which i've been loving. 
First up I have skincare, I haven't bought that much skincare this month since i'm saving to get some bits in Paris next month. Something I did pick up is the Clarins Lotus Face Oil, this stuff is so lovely. It smells great and is a great oil for oily skin because it isn't too heavy but makes my skin feel so hydrated. I also think this is helping with redness and scaring. Full review coming soon. Next is my current go to Summer day cream, the La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat, this is such a good day moisturiser for oily skin and I think it also helps keep my make-up in pace during the day. Another Summer favourite product, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I was so happy to be able to dig this out again this month. I love spritzing this on my face after applying my make-up or as a mid day refresher the skin. 
Onto this months make-up picks. First up is my current go to foundation, the Bourjous Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation (review here). This has a great medium coverage and as a lovely glowy finish. It also stays in place really well on my oily skin, perfect. Next I have two cream blushes i'm loving lately. First being the Bourjous Cream Blush in Healthy Glow. This is a lovely peachy coral shade which gives a lovely glow to the cheeks. (full review here). The other being the Illamasqua Cream Blush in Dixie, when they had 50% off everything the other day I had to snap this up. It is a lovely peachy pink shade which looks so natural on the skin and is very buildable. 
I've been loving anything coral lately and one of my favourite coral lipsticks in the Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick in the shade Stay With Me Coral . This is a lovely pinky coral shade which alone can be a little drying but with a lip balm underneath looks lovely and bright. Another Maybelline product I picked up in America. This trio is called Bronze Haze from the Modern Metallics Collection and has some lovely bronzey shades which i've been loving lately and the quality of the shadows is really nice too.
I did a whole post on my love for mint polishes recently and one of my favourites is the Bourjous Amande Defile polish, it's a lovely apple white pastel shade which is perfect for Spring/Summer. A body product i've dug back out this month is the Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Gel Cream, I love these creams when I can't be bothered sitting around waiting for my body butter to sink it because it dries so quickly so is perfect for Summer. 

So that's this month beauty favourites. I'm looking forward to having a relaxed month in June after being so busy the past few months. I'm also off to London and Paris at the end of June so expect some packing post and haul posts coming your way.

What have been your beauty favourites this month?

  3. I've been wanting to try the Beauty Elixir, but I'm worried it may be a little much for my extremely sensitive skin.

    1. I've had no reactions to it personally, maybe try the smaller bottle first :)

  5. Wow at the cream blush!~
    I'm too scared to use LRP products again, it dried out my skin horribly the first time I used 3 products from the brand. ): Glad it's working for you, though!~
