November Favourites

I genuinely cannot believe it's the end of November. Where has this year gone? Christmas is only next month and I haven't even started my Christmas shopping. This month I've had a couple of cold/flu stints which my skin has definitely not thanked me for. It's been really dry and I've had masses of break outs so this months favourites are pretty much centered around this.

Firstly, the Seventeen On The Spot Concealer. I love this stuff, not only does it cover up my blemishes but it also treats them at the same time and this month I've had so many breakouts this has been my life saver. Another skin saviour is the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, I love this stuff...it's so nourishing and soothing on the skin but also feels really lightweight. It removes really easily, no scrubbing needed to the face and my skin is left feeling clean, fresh and nourished. With other products I have tried whilst, yes, they do leave my skin feeling clean, they also leave my skin feeling tight which this definitely doesn't do.

My skin has felt really sensitive with these germs this month so I haven't wanted to use anything other than the Mandara Spa Blooming Bath & Shower Oil*. When dispensed it's an oil but the moment it is within contact of water or applied to the body it turns into a rich creamy milk. It contains coconut and sweet almond oil that both help to nourish and moisturise the skin. I use this in the shower and also pour into my baths, after using this my skin feels so soft and moisturised. The scent of this product just instantly relaxes me.

The Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque in shade 07 Fuchsia Perche has normally only ever been in my Summer makeup bag but actually it's a really lovely shade for this time of year. It's a really pretty deep pink shade that's perfect for this time of year for adding a slight warmth to the skin.

Then lastly is the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, now you all know how much I love my big voluminous hair and these two little beauties have been a god send. They give my hair a lovely natural bounce without the heaviness that most products leave.

What have been your November favourites?
