It’s that time again where I share with you my favourite products of the month! I have made some great discoveries this month, so lets get stuck in and see what I have been loving!

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist

I have a bit of a face mist obsession, I seriously love them! I use them day and night as part of my skincare routine, and throughout the day and could seriously not be with them, they are a necessity for my dehydrated skin! My latest purchase is the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist which I got as part of the Anna & Lily Cult Beauty Box, and is a product that I had been meaning to try for some time now as I love Pixi Skincare. This does not disappoint, the spray dispenses the perfect amount of product in a fine spray so that your skin gets a good amount of product without being dripping wet! It feels very lightweight on the skin as well as being cooling and soothing too! It also contains hyaluronic acid which instantly hydrates my skin, I cannot get enough of this!

Origins Smoothing Ginger Body Scrub

I bought this because I absolutely love the scent of Origins Ginger products and needed a new body scrub. I feel I am quite picky when it comes to body scrubs, I like them on the grittier side, so feel disappointed when they lack in grit! This has a good amount of grains but doesn’t not feel overly harsh at all, it buffs away at the skin and then gently dissolves into a creamy lather that is adequate to cleanse your body without having to use a separate shower gel. This is one of my all time favorite scents, it smells incredible and feels very uplifting to use and leaves my skin soft and smooth.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

Flowerbomb is a fragrance that I have worn for years, I remember when I first discovered it, probably about 9-10 years ago it was actually quite hard to get hold of, (but of course now it is everywhere) and I actually wore it on my wedding day. I haven’t had it for a few years, but recently got it as a gift for Mothers Day, and have worn it pretty much every day since. I love its sweetness that is not overbearing and includes notes of Jasmine which is one of my favorite scents. I am so glad to have this back in my collection, and now also have a mini rollerball that I can take on my travels too!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara

This mascara is incredible, it gives that dramatic false lash effect with an easy-to-use brush that doesn’t clump. It gives amazing volume and length, and stays put all day with no flaking or smudging! It is pretty much everything I want out of a mascara! This is just a sample size I got with my Sephora points, but I will definitely buy the full size once I have used up my current stash!

BareMinerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

I bought this due to all the rave reviews it has been receiving and thought I would switch it up a bit from my ever faithful Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I absolutely love the serum-like consistency of this that glides onto the skin effortlessly, it blends nicely and covers well. I bought the shade medium so I could use it both under the eyes and to cover blemishes and whilst it does both well, I definitely prefer it for under my eyes as I prefer a thicker, drier concealer for my blemishes. That said it would be a great one to pop into your handbag for touch-ups on-the-go. I will be doing a full comparison between this, the Nars and also the Urban Decay alternative very soon, so watch out for that!

Too Faced Love Flush Long Lasting 16-Hour Blush in Baby Love

This blush is gorgeous, the shade Baby Love is a soft dusty nude that has a very fine golden shimmer running through it that doesn’t look shimmery on the skin at all, it just prevents this nude shade from looking flat. It is the perfect everyday shade that seems to go with everything, it applies and blends  beautiful and really does last well on the skin. I am already eyeing up other shades of this blush as I love the formula!

My Kit Co. My Ultra Multi Brush

This is one of my latest purchases from My Kit Co., which if you didn’t see this post, you wouldn’t know how much I absolutely love this new brush brand. The Ultra Multi brush is, as its name suggests a great multi-tasker, perfect for setting powder, highlighting and blending. My favorite use for this brush though is the last step of my eyeshadow, for blending everything seamlessly together. As with all My Kit Co. brushes, the quality is amazing and I highly recommend you checking them out if you haven’t already!
