November 2013 Beauty Favourites!

During November, although there were a few days I found myself loving a bright lip, I mostly kept my make up to a minimum. I also indulged in one too many hot baths and discovered some really wonderful skin care products as well as something that has helped keep my hair feeling super soft despite the battering it's been getting from the cold winds. Even though it wasn't the most exciting month beauty wise, I thought I'd still share my favourites! 

Conscious Skincare Sweet Orange & Frangipani Bath Soak*
One day I will stop talking about this at every available opportunity. Hot baths in the evening before bed have become my new favourite thing and my number one go-to bath product for when I don't fancy bubbles has been this. I won't say too much because I have an entire post (yes I love it that much!) that you can find here.

Dove Style & Care Nourishing Dry Ends Serum*
When it comes to hair products I'm generally super minimal, mostly because I'm lazy but also partly because most products weigh my hair down. This serum it really light so my hair doesn't lose any of what little volume it has when I use it, which is the first thing I love about it. The second thing I love is how soft it makes my hair feel. I don't use this all the time because a lot of the time I quite like to wear my hair as messily as possible, but for those days I want a more sleek look, I always reach for this.

Good Things Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser
The first tube I had of this was gifted to me, I loved it so much I'm already on my second and I'm sure I'll continue to repurchase for a long time to come. This is by no means a miracle product, but it leaves my skin feeling super clean without drying it out. I'm having a bit of a nightmare with both blemishes and dryness, I think I'm just really stressed out and need to take some time over Christmas to slow down a bit but until then, this is my skin's saviour at the moment.

Organic Surge First Class Mask*
In conjunction with the cleanser I've been using this mask around twice a week, which has really been helping. I apply a thin layer all over my face and leave it for as long as I have time, usually around 20 minutes. It has a really fresh lemony scent and when I rinse it off my skin feels a lot smoother, hydrated and a lot more radiant. The rosemary and lemon really help to purify & cleanse and the aloe vera and sweet almond oil are beautifully calming and moisturising. A really lovely mask for under £10.

Maybelline Fit Me Powder*
My current favourite powder is this one from Maybelline and I think I've mentioned this way too many times in the last few months too. There's nothing particularly super-special about it, I just really like how light it feels on the skin and it never seems to look cakey even when I get a little carried away with my powder brush in the mornings. It seems to last forever too, I've been using this so much and I'm nowhere near hitting pan!

MAC Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush
I've had this in my collection for a really long time, it was part of a limited collection years ago and I had forgotten how pretty it is. I'm not hugely into MAC products but I would like to look into their mineralized blushes a little more because this one is lovely. It's really easy to apply, it blends like a dream and lasts pretty well on me throughout the day. I have my eye on the shade Warm Soul, which looks like a beautiful bronze-neutral colour, so that may be my next purchase. Although...I really don't need any more blushes!

Lime Crime Great Pink Planet Lipstick*
This is another product I feel like I've mentioned a lot already, so I won't say too much here. The packaging is amazing, I've really fallen for that holographic unicorn and it's always a talking point whenever I take this out of my make up bag. The colour is a really beautiful pink, it's quite unusual but wearable at the same time. I have a full review post here and I'm very tempted to invest in a few more shades! 

MAC Creme Cup Lipstick
My final favourite is a slightly more wearable pink lipstick. I've had creme cup in my collection for a really long time and I think it's time I tried to finally use it up. On me this is quite a nude pink and every time I start using it again I remember how much I love it. This will be a definite repurchase if I ever do manage to finally use this tube up. I have a full post on this here - I really need to start getting more organised with review posts, I used to write them all the time!

What was your favourite product during November? 

Love, Jennie

  17. The Dove hair serum sounds lovely! I really hate it when my hair gets weighed down, especially straight after washing and I find that some serums can make my hair look oily. I might try and hunt this one down :) xxx

  22. I've always wanted to know how well the Good Things products work as I've always been drawn in by the packaging but realised that's not a good enough reason to buy a face product, might give it a go since it works well!

  24. The Mineralise Blush is so so pretty. How disappointing that it was part of a collection. It looks like a shade that would suit you very well.

    I like the look of Creme Cup and the Dove Serum sounds great. I do find that Dove is an amazing hair care brand and it's definitely the brand I of hair care I use the most. Do you think it would work well for much curlier and somewhat coarse hair textures?

    You still have me longing to take a bath even though I never liked the idea beforehand!

  26. I only have one Lime Crime lipstick (Airborne Unicorn) but I forget sometimes how much I like it. It's a bit out there but it's so versatile to make any lip colour more purple. And the packaging is just so fun and childish in the best way :) Creme Cup is one of my favourite pinky nudes though sometimes I think it's too light for my complexion - I'm sure it's perfect on you though!
