A few things I really like at the moment!


This week a few products have really impressed me and rather than waiting until the end of the month for a favourites post, I thought I'd share them now in case they sound like something that you'd also like to try! It's nice talking about products that really work and after clearing out some of the things I wasn't using last week, I've been enjoying using the things I have left!

Balance Me Rose Otto Hand Cream* (£10)
This was a really sweet Valentine's Day gift from Balance Me and it's a really beautiful hand cream. In fact, I actually think it rivals my all time favourite L'Occitane hand cream and that's really saying something! The rose scent is really delicate and beautiful, it's not one of those 'old' rose scents, it's very classic, natural and lovely.

Organic Surge Orange Flower Toner* (£6.50)
I've been using the Odylique Balancing Citrus Super Tonic* for the past couple of months and I adore that, so I've been intrigued to see how this toner from Organic Surge would compare. I have a feeling I'm going to like them both equally. This lends itself perfectly as a post-cleanse toner at night time and the other is beautiful to spritz over my face in the mornings. Orange flower water is supposed to have wonderful healing and regenerating properties & I don't want to speak too soon because I've only been using this for a week or so, but I think it's really helping to calm my skin down. I hope it keeps working!

The Bakewell Soap Company Multi-Purpose Pocket Balm* (£4.95)
This came in last month's Love Me Beauty Box and I've been using it consistently ever since. I don't live too far from Bakewell, so it's really lovely to use a local product. I've been keeping this on my bedside table and I use it every evening as an intensive lip balm. It's beautiful.  

Illamasqua Lover Powder Blush (£26 in a duo with Hussy blush)
Since finally ditching my pink ombre hair I've been embracing the ability to wear peach blushes again and I'm loving it. This is the perfect peach shade that just adds a touch of warmth to my complexion that I'm definitely appreciating now that it's finally nearing the end of winter. 

Are there any products that you've been particularly enjoying this week?

  22. I really need to get into the habit of using my hand lotions! It just seems like I throw them somewhere and forget about them.
    I've set my eye on a peach blush, I've always used only pinks and I want to break the chains sort of, so thank you for posting this!
