October Favourites

Wednesday, 1 November 2017


Somehow we're not at the end of October, I feel like I blinked and this month has totally disappeared. October through to December is my favourite time of the year and so I hate how quickly it's going. This month has been a bit of a crazy one for me as work is super busy, but I thought I'd share with you a few of the things I've been loving this month.

I recently reviewed the Estée Lauder Double Wear so I won't go into too much detail about it, but I've fallen in love with this foundation this month. It provides such a high coverage without being too heavy on my skin. I love that it comes in such a large array of shades which means that it's suitable for so many different skin tones. I've been reaching for this foundation so much more than any other this month, I love it!

Until recently, I'd never used a CC cream and didn't really know too much about their benefits. Instead I stuck to a trusted BB cream the I loved. If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know that I don't like to wear foundation on a daily basis as I find them too much and my skin doesn't like it. Therefore, when my friend recommended trying a CC cream, I was really intrigued and went into Boots to see what I could find. I came across the Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting cream and thought it was worth a try. Considering I bought it on a bit of a whim, I've absolutely been loving it. The coverage is really good, though obviously not as high as a foundation, but my skin is really grateful for that. Whilst it doesn't last all day, it is much better than any BB cream I've used, it's really easy to apply and blends so well. Annoyingly there are only two shades, but fortunately for me, one of the lightest shade 'Ivory' is perfect for my skin tone, it's so good a correcting all the redness on my face. I'm definitely going to be repurchasing another one as I've been so impressed.

Last month, I was in The Body Shop and they had a 3 for 2 offer on their skincare and as I needed two skincare products, I thought it was only right that I got a third for free! I came across the Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion and was really intrigued by it so thought it was worth a try. I apply this as a base to help prevent any oiliness throughout the day. I have combination skin and so I do have oily areas of skin and this is perfect at matifying that without causing any breakouts. The Tea Tree range at The Body Shop is designed for blemished skin and whilst my skin isn't too bad at the moment, I like the Tea Tree range as I know that it won't cause any breakouts. I like to use the Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion during the week underneath my CC cream and it's great at holding my make up in place for longer. I've been really impressed!

I don't need to go into too much detail about this product as everyone seems to be loving it at the moment, I also did a full review which you can check out here. However, what I will say is that I've been really loving this cleanser this month. It's great at removing my make-up and leaves my skin feeling really clean. I've really fallen in love with it!

I was recently in America and knew I had to get my hands on a Bath & Body Works candles as I'd heard such good things about them. Once in store, I spent ages smelling all the different candles trying to decide which one to get (much to my boyfriends dismay). Eventually, I settled on 'Leaves' as it's literally Autumn in a candle and I absolutely love it! It's really scented and there's no mistaking once you've lit it! I've been burning it so much this month and my flat has smelt incredible!

So that's everything I've been loving this October, I'd love to know what you've been loving!
