May Beauty Favourites

Here are a few of my beauty favourites this month. I’ve been trying to buy more natural products because I think my skin prefers it. Of course it is a lot better fore the environment too. What are your monthly favourites?

Seventeen Instant Glow Tan Cream Bronzer

I bought this during my discounted Seventeen makeup haul – view my post here. This is a cream bronzer housed in a pan style container. Because of this I can apply it with a Beauty Blender instead of other cream bronzers I’ve had in the past that are in stick form. The consistency is light and blends easily. The colour is great for me and gives a natural tanned look. I would recommend seeing if your local Boots is selling off old Seventeen branded products as this is only £1.50.

Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask

I’ve been using this mask for about a year now but more so in the past month when doing my at home facial – read my post here. It’s a hydrating mask that works quickly. The scent is fruity and refreshing. It leaves the skin soft and the product is natural (not vegan as it contains beeswax and honey).

Lanolips 101 Ointment

I’ve been using this lip balm for the past couple of months now. Before I used to religiously buy the Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm but I couldn’t buy it locally anymore and happened to see this for sale. The product works just as well. It’s a lot more convenient too because it is in a squeezy tube. The balm can become quite solid in cold conditions so sometimes you have to warm it up by massaging the tube to get the product out. I think the branding is quite cute, I like to see it on my bedside table. The actual product is made from a natural wax that is produced by woollen animals to keep their wool protected. The balm is therefore natural and cruelty free.

Nuxe Nuxellence Éclat Radiance Anti-Ageing Care

I bought this from a small sale I saw in Boots, I think I must have got it for around £5. Only looking it up now for this review do I see that it’s about £30-40 normally – what a discount! I’ve used this cream everyday. The smell is really nice, the packaging and scent reminds me faintly of parma violets. The weight of the cream is light and pleasant to use, it’s made from 90% natural ingredients. I use it in the morning and it can be used alone or as well as moisturiser. It’s designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth the skin.

Tosowoong Black Sugar Facial Scrub

This is a great exfoliator for my skin. I don’t feel like the sugar is too rough on my skin and I like to rub it on my face until it dissolves into a oily residue which feels hydrating. The smell is just like what you’d expect from a sugar scrub and leaves the skin lovely and soft.

Nature Love Natural Deodorant Stick in Cucumber Aloe

I have been purchasing and testing natural deodorants for a few years now and this so far is the best I’ve tried. I picked it up in TK Maxx so it could be worth looking there for it as I can’t find many sellers online. It’s 100% natural and works really well. More recently in the summer months I have noticed it not being as foolproof but definitely in less humid weather it prevents the majority of body odour. I would give this a go if you are looking to try natural deodorants.

Buy it in Tk Maxx.

Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation

I feel like I’ve mentioned this so many times on my blog but this cushion foundation is the one I’ve been using the most this month. The coverage is really great and it has good longevity. I think the packaging is sleek and really functional for taking on holiday and even touching up throughout the day. Read my longer review here.
