Current Beauty Favourites

Decleor moisturizer- I’ve been using this product every day for about two weeks now and really enjoy the thick, creamy texture of it. I can’t say I’ve noticed any significant difference in the firmness of my skin, but I’ve found it sits really well under my make-up and makes a lovely base for my primer. I also like that even though it’s a lovely thick cream going on, once rubbed in it doesn’t leave you face feeling sticky or caked with product. I’m not a massive fan of the smell but it’s not one that lingers around all day, so it’s not really an issue and it hasn’t brought me out in a rash which is a big plus. I’m not sure whether it’s a little early to start using anti-aging products but I’m sure it won’t do any harm!

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm- I used this product on and off for years, it tends to be one that I forget about then fall in love with all over again. It’s a great base for make-up, virtually fragrance free so great for sensitive skin, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on the skin. The thing I love about the Clarins Flash Balm is that you only need a tiny amount to cover the face so although it’s not cheap it does last a very long time. So all in all I’m in love with it again :)

L’oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil- This is probably my favourite thing that I’ve bought this month. I’ve tried a few other oils like the Kérastase Elixir Ultime Versatile Beautifying Oil, and the Percy and Reed No Oil Oil but this is by far my favourite, and it’s the cheapest! It’s such a lightweight oil once in your hair so that’s you’re not left with flat, sticky hair and it smells lovely. I use about 2 pumps per application after I’ve washed my hair or before bed, rub it between my hands and then run through the lengths of my hair. The thing I love the most about this is that unlike the Kérastase oil you’re not left with greasy, slimy product all over your hands, which is such a pain to wash off. I’ve been using this oil for just over 3 weeks now and I’d say I’ve already noticed a difference in the condition of my hair, it feels a lot thicker and healthier and I’d put it all down to this product. The beauty of this is as you use such a tiny amount per application a whole bottle will last for months.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel- I tend to switch my serums up a fair amount as I’m quite fickle so like to try different products all the time. However I seem to have been using the Jurlique gel quite religiously for the past few weeks, and I’ve been loving it. It has such a lovely, calming, lavender smell, which is perfect for a night time serum as it’s not overwhelming and puts you into the perfect Zen like mood before bed. The smell is pretty similar to the Kheils night serum, which is also a favourite of mine. I tend to use this under a moisturizer just at night time instead of day and night as I don’t really like wearing serums in the day as they tend to be a bit greasy.

Nivea Lip Butter Raspberry Rose- I’ve been looking for a new lip balm for a while as I just don’t find Vaseline does anything to my lips and burts bee’s seemed to make my lips even dryer. After hearing great things I thought I would give the Nivea Lip Butter’s a go as the whole range smells delicious. I bought the Raspberry Rose one, they come in a number of different flavours but this one smelt the most summery. This lip butter has a bit of a pale pink tint to it, which transfers to the lips a lot more than I thought and leaves quite a whitey/pinky residue on the lips. I’m not a massive fan of the tint it leaves but I’m really enjoying the smell and texture of this product so I’m tempted to try one of the other flavours as they’re only about £2!
