February Favourites

Friday, 28 February 2014


Another month has come and gone and I must say I am glad to see this one end. It means we are a little bit closer to spring and March is also the month of my birthday. I am going to be 29 this year and while it never bothered me before I am starting to dread getting closer to 30. One more year left until the big 30. I know its only a number and it doesn't mean much but sometimes I do worry. I have so many plans for my life ahead that I often feel like I running out of time. After all I don't want to be old to achieve some of my life goals. But never mind nobody stays young forever so I should not be worried and 30 is not really old even tough I sometimes feel like it.;-)
Anyway lets not go on about my age, lets look at some of this month favourites!!

Number one has to be the Clarins Lotus Face Oil Treatment. Gosh has this changed my skin. Since using this every night for two weeks now, I have seen a huge reduction of spots and my old acne scars are fading away fast. My skin looks plump and radiant in the morning and putting on my make up has never been easier. It smoothed out my skins texture and helps with any unevenness. The only thing is my husband hates the smell of this and doesn't come close to me after I put this on but I am sorry hubby how can I stop using this lovely essential oil after seeing such amazing results?

The next thing I have been loving this month is my new cleanser. Its the OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel. Its not just like any ordinary gel cleanser that I have used before, no its a gel based cleanser that turns to a luxurious oil and melts into skin to quickly and gently remove make up and any other impurities while it nourishes and brightens the skin. Wash of  with a flannel and you will be left with balanced, clean, fresh and radiant skin that feels soft and smooth.

Make up wise I have been returning to my old and faithful Laura Mercier Mineral Powder. This was my staple foundation last year and it looks like it will continue to be the one I reach for the most. I like that its a powder, so it doesn't have the heavy feeling that most liquid foundations have. It also gives great coverage that you can build up to a full without ever looking cakey or powdery. And it last on my oily skin for up to 8 hours. Pretty impressive for a powder, right??

This wouldn't be a favourites post without me throwing in a lippy! This month I have been loving my Topshop Ohh La La Lipstick. The colour of this lipstick reminds me of the 60s, its mostly because I have been watching season 6 of MAD MEN and wanting to look like the girls in the show! There is just something about that era, women looked so chic and the dresses they wore are just so pretty and feminine. Maybe the fashion will come back some day, a girl can dream!! I like to pair this lipstick with a nice cat eye feline flick and a bit of blusher and I am good to go!

Lastly I want to talk about my all time favourite perfume. If you like floral scents like me you will love the Kenzo Flower Perfume! I remember smelling this for the first time, I knew I had to have it and since then it has become my go to perfume. If there was a smell that would describe me it would be this. Sadly I run out of it but my lovely husband remembered how much I loved it and got me a new bottle on Valentines day! Its a vibrant, fresh and sensual scent that smells of rose and vanilla. Sweet Bliss!!

  1. I have seen a lot about the OSKIA cleanser and now I really want to give it a go! And I love the shade of the top shop lipstick, I have 'sartorial' myself which is a lovely orangey red, perfect for the summer, so I can't wait to use it again!
