February Favourites 2016

Hi everyone,

I have been meaning to do a favourites post for the last few months but then the end of the month rolls round quicker than I expected and I’ve already scheduled a ton of posts, so in the end I don’t end up doing it! For February though, I planned it in advance as there are a few products that I have really enjoyed using and wanted to share :)

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish had been on my wish list forever and I finally got my hands on it for Christmas last year. I love how easily it removes my makeup and even really stubborn eye makeup comes off in no time. My skin also feels lovely and soft after I have used it which is no mean feat at the moment with my skin being so dry. The only problem I have with it is that sometimes I’m feeling really lazy and like to just use a quick face wash or scrub whilst I’m in the shower instead but that really is just me being super lazy!

Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Daydream

Recently I have found myself thinking that my makeup collection would benefit from more nude shades as more often than not I am drawn towards the pink and red colours. I have had my eye on this lipgloss for a while but wasn’t sure if the colour would suit me very much. I’m so glad that I bought it though as it is perfect for every day or when you have done something a bit more dramatic with your eye makeup. I have to be careful not to apply too much as I don’t think it suits me when I pile it on but one sweep gives me the perfect nude, natural lip colour.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder

I won’t go on about this one too much as I have recently written a full review on it which you can read here. All I will say is that this product is one of my most favourite products that I have bought recently and even though it costs a small fortune, it is worth every penny. I have used it pretty much every day in February and will definitely be looking to buy it in some of the other shades that are available.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser

Have I mentioned that my skin has been dry recently? You’re probably sick of me going on about it but that is why the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser has been a favourite product of mine during February. I have been exfoliating well but my foundation has still been clinging in areas that are particularly bad so I decided to try mixing in a little tinted moisturiser to see if it would help. It has worked a little bit and it looks better than just the foundation on its own. Although it doesn’t last quite as long on my skin, I have found that it’s better to powder a couple of times throughout the day that have dry patches covered in foundation everywhere!

Marks and Spencer La Maison De Senteurs Body Wash

I’m not usually too fussy about which body wash or shower gels I use but this is one of the few that I think is worth a mention. I’ve tried a couple in the range now but my favourite scent has got to be the Fleur d’ Orangier which is lovely and fresh and my skin always feels softer after I have used it. There are also candles, hand washes and body lotions amongst other things available in this scent, some of which I have tried and others I haven’t yet but will definitely need adding to my wish list!

  3. This is a great list of favourites, Hannah! I never tried Becca powder, the only two things I have are highlighters. I am planning to try more from Becca so I'll be adding the powder into my list!

  5. I haven't seen many reviews of the Tanya Burr collection since it launched, so it's great to know this lipgloss acts as a lovely natural nude after one swipe! :)
