What I’m Loving: May 2014



It is that time of the year again, exam time (save me). However, luckily it is also that time of the month (albeit a little late), Favourites time 🙂

If you have been following me on Instagram, then you will know that I have been doing the #100happydays challenge where I take a picture everyday of something or someone that has made my day happier. As you can imagine from a beauty junkie as myself, some of these shots are of products that I have been loving lately. 

Firstly, I am currently madly in love with The Body Shop. During May I finished off my Moroccan Rose, Eau de Toilette, which smells really fresh and not too sweet. Since then I have gotten myself the newer version of this scent which is the Atlas Mountain Rose scent. I have also been loving The Body Shop, Honey and Oat 3-in-1 Scrub Mask. I use this mask once a week, sometimes twice, and it works wonders on my sensitive skin. It helps clear out any impurities and leaves the skin soft and hydrated. I am already halfway through this cute tub and have used it multiple times, so it’s well worth getting.

Next item in my May addictions is the Batiste Dry Shampoo. During May I was getting slightly greasy roots on second day hair, thus was on the lookout for a good dry shampoo to refresh my hair between washes and get some volume back into it. Enter the Batiste big & bouncy XXL volume Dry Shampoo. I am loving the different variants of the Batiste Dry Shampoos, not a big fan of the white powder but once I massage it into the roots, it all looks quite fresh. Also hair related, I have been loving the Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair which has Liquid Keratin in it. I am currently trying to grow my hair out and haven’t gone to the hair dresser in what feels like forever. So I need to keep my hair in great shape and protected since I use lots of heat styling tools. This product works wonders and leaving the hair quite smooth as well, so that it is easier to smooth and work with after a wash.

Another May favourite was nails. During the month I tried the Rimmel Pro Matte Finish Top Coat which is amazing at giving you matte nails in any colour. I tried mine with the Inglot Nail Enamel in the 860 Red shade and loved it. I also was loving pink during the month and if you want some gorgeous pink nails, just try some of the Essence ones, I think I might have most of their pinks. The ones shown from Left to Right are; 104 Sweet as Candy, 106 Free Hugs, 107 Naughty and Pink, 108 Ultimate Pink and 110 Modern Romance.

Some random favourites are the Nivea Aqua Effect Face Mask for sensitive skin with honey, which was surprisingly good for Nivea masks. I also tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer, which no surprise I got in a shade that is a bit too dark for me at the moment. However, I liked the consistency and will surely get much use of it in the Summer months. I am also loving these chubby stick pencil type lip products. I have the Clinique Chubby Stick in 15 Pudgy Peony, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Honey and the No 7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink.

Last but definitely not least, I am loving the La Roche Posay Toleraine Soothing Protective Skincare Face Cream. It has seriously changed my skin. It calms any irritations on my skin which is usually what leads to more breakouts for me. I love applying it at night or during the day if I am having a no makeup, relax at home, kind of day. This one is a little bit too shiny for under makeup, but I just got myself the combination to oily version so cannot wait to use it every day.

What have you been loving lately? Any common favourites? 🙂
