First up skincare, I have dug out an old favourite which has been a must have for my Winter skin. The Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner, the name sums this one up pretty well. It's a gentle exfoliator which makes the skin look so smooth and fresh. The next product is the L'oreal Absolute Make-Up Remover Eye & Lip, i've heard good things about this lately so decided to give it a go, it is the perfect product for removing heavy eye makeup in seconds without leaving any residue behind. I would definitely recommend it.
A product I love whenever Christmas is near is The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter, it has a lovely fruity scent and makes my skin feel super moisturised. It also makes your whole room smell lovely once you've used it. Something I picked up recently which has been helping me have a good nights sleep is the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, this has mixture of a lavender and camomile scent to it which once sprayed on your pillow smells so relaxing.
My skin always seems to look a little tired in Winter, to help get rid of this i've been applying the Revlon Photoready SkinLights Face Illuminator in Bare Light underneath my foundation. It adds a lovely sutble glow to the skin without looking over the top. I've been using a few different foundations this month, a stand out has been the Bourjous Happy Light Foundation, this is the perfect light to medium coverage with a semi matte finish. The shade 50 is a touch dark so i've been mixing it with a lighter foundation which works really well. I picked up a new under eye concealer this month; the Bourjous Touche Healthy Mix, which covers really well but feels light on the skin and doesn't crease. Perfect.
I've definitely been having a thing for Bourjous products this month, the next one is the Cream Blush in 03 Rose Tender, this is a lovely light pink blush which has a lovely brightening effect to the skin. This month if you spent £15 on Bourjous in Boots you got a free gift. One of the product was the 3D Effect Gloss in 06 Rouge Democratic, I'm definitely not a gloss person but this one feels like a balm on the lips and isn't sticky, the colour is a lovely plum red shade with a slight shimmer to it, perfect for this time of year. The last product is one I picked up when I was in America and i've only just got round to opening. It's the Almay One Coat Get Up and Grow mascara, this is the perfect all round mascara as it adds length and volume whilst being super black. Definitely one to pick up if you live or are visit the States.
So that's this months favourites, as you can see i've had a thing for Bourjous recently, their base products are definitely my favourite from the drugstore. What have been your favourite products this month?
