December Favourites

I like most people love reading monthly favourite posts - It gives me a chance to see what products people have been loving recently and why. This may be the reason why I have a very long wishlist as I've been seeing too many products that I'm wanting which other people have said that they've loved.

I'm finally back to using a toner and I've really been loving Boots Botanics Organic Face Rosewater Toner. This cleanses and tones my skin whilst leaving it not feeling stripped of my skins essential oils. When I first started using this, I thought that it was breaking me out when actually it wasn't and now I love using this! It contains only five ingredients, four of which are all organic so I know that its leaving my skin feeling and looking good.

I'm a lipstick addict although I must admit that I don't wear it enough despite buying a new lipstick often. I've found myself layering Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Lipstick in 13 Satin Bow over VIVO Lipstick in Barely There which leaves my lips with a really nice silky pink colour to them. I'm not a fan of bright, noticeable lips so this combination is a really good everyday nude lip almost. I make sure that I always apply a lipbalm before applying a lipstick so throughout December, I've been slathering Lacura's Lip Balm nonstop. It was featured in last months favourites as well purely because its a good base for lipstick as well as making sure that they stay moisturised throughout the day.

I've rediscovered my love for Benefit IT Stick after finding a sharpener to sharpen it. It's the perfect under eye concealer as it really brightens up the eye area as well as concealing any blemishes or dark bags under the eyes. I'm not sure if you can still get this so it might be worth checking out your local Benefit counter or just doing a google search. After finishing a foundation this month, I've found myself going back to Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation which has been giving me skin a nice glow to it. This provides just enough coverage to conceal blemishes and any skin imperfections as well as giving my skin a nice dewy look to it.
