Favourite products at the moment

Hello there! Long time, no speak. Being a hard working, diligent 6th year (hint of sarcasm here) this little blog has taken a bit of a backseat. I've been longing to do a favourites, and as a result of having some free time on this Sunday evening I decided to take the plunge and do it, because if I didn't, we would have to wait another month, and we don't want that now do we! I was going to christen this a 'February Favourites', but honestly I've been loving these products for a couple of months now.. 'So far my 2013 favourites' shall we say?

Left-Right. Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula; The Body Shop 'Born Lippy'; MAC Blush in 'Frankly Scarlet'; Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Wash; Essence Nail Varnish in 'Free Hugs'; H&M Candy Pink Body Splash; Blank Canvas Cosmetics F20 Brush

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula- One sniff of this, and I was sold. If you haven't smell/bought this already, that needs to change! Oh, and its good at moisturising too. :)

The Body Shop 'Born Lippy'- Being honest, I haven't a clue as to what made me pick this product up, but I am very glad I did. Its so moisturising, long lasting, I apply this a few times during the day, and at night just after I exfoliate my lips, & wake up with smooth, soft lips. I laaaaaaave this shit.

MAC Blush in 'Frankly Scarlet'- I had to insert a picture of this just so yee can get a fair idea of its colour. Some would call this pink, but I would definitely see it as red. It is scary, I will admit, but applied with a light hand and blended out slightly, it turns into a gorgeous glowing, almost coral colour. 

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Wash- Without sounding shallow, I could not live without this product. I'm sure I've spoken of my skin here before, but basically, I am very prone to acne. My skin reacts to everything, regardless of me using products for sensitive skin, and cleansing religiously morning and evening. I have tried everything under the sun to clear up my acne & this has finally done it.. Granted, I'm left with plenty of scars from the last few months so my skin is far from clear, but this is preventing further scarring which is all I want from a product. I've heard millions of reviews raving about this but some reason I never tried it & I am so happy I did. I would say it is quite drying, but use a good moisturiser afterwards and everything is ceart go leor. This is my 2nd bottle of this.

Essence Nail Varnish in 'Free Hugs'- I feel this quite a 'pink themed' post, but this is the winner. I have been searching for a blue toned pink nail varnish, one that was reeeeally opaque, & this is it. Retailing at €1.79, pair this with a top coat and it will last days.

H&M Candy Pink Body Splash- I initially picked this up because it was under €2 and I liked the look of it, but I am so glad I did! Being so cheap, I expected it to have no staying power and last about an hour. If I spray this on a top/scarf in the morning, its still lingering on it that evening. Definitely a favourite.

Blank Canvas Cosmetics F20 Brush- How could I do a favourites without mentioning something from this brand! I also wanted to include a up close picture of this baby, to give yee all a better idea of it. Now, if you have read my review on Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes, then you'll know how much I love them. I have many favourites from their range of products, but this beats all. With any foundation, powder, or even turn it at an angle for contour, this brush makes it flawless! If I could recommend any brush to you, beginner or advanced, this would be it. Its only just €13.99 and worth every penny. To fit in with this pink themed post, BCC have also brought out a limited edition bright pink one which I really want! Go onnn, treat yourself :) http://www.blankcanvascosmetics.com/

I hope you all had a great February, and enjoyed reading this post. Let me know if you've tried anything new recently, I would love to hear from you :)


  1. Ohh all these products sound fabulous, specially the body shop lip balm! If only you had the F20 in the hot pink, would be a total pink post:P Great faves!
