May/June Favourites



Soap & Glory Heel Genius - I'll admit that I'm one of those people who totally neglect their feet. I always have good intentions to keep them nice and soft but I always forget. After wearing wellies for most of the Winter due to lots rain my feet have become horrible. Heel Genius has started to soften them up and make them lovely and soft again just in time for summer even though it's raining again so I'll probably end up back to square one ha.

Lush Dream Cream -  I received this as a gift for Valentine's day but didn't really pay it much attention until I decided to give it a whirl this month. I have been pleasantly surprised! Dream Cream is really lovely for sensitive skin, something which I have always suffered from. I've started to use this every time I shave or epilate my legs and it leaves them soft and smooth and it's a lot lighter than the Cocoa Butter that I normally use.

Bioderma - A make up remover that doesn't leave my eyes stinging for hours after?! Although pricey I have been enjoying this product and don't dread taking my make up off as much. NO MORE PUFFY SKIN!

Nuxe Reve de Miel - What a little beauty! I discovered this little gem when watching Lisa Eldridge's video on French Pharmacy skincare and fancied giving it a try. It's matte, nourishing and smells orangey. Kind of. Although it is pretty expensive for a lipbalm it does last a long time, and I have well and truly given mine a hammering ha.

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre - Most people have something beauty related they can't quite get right. Mine is face cream and eye cream. I suffer with dry and oily skin so it's normally hard to find something to fit both. This is a really nice light cream that sinks in really fast and leaves your face feeling smooth without that heavy feeling. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Another lip product to add to the other 500, yes ha. I have been lusting after one of these for ages. They're strongly pigmented, soft and they dry matte. They can become a little bit slippy if you apply too much so the trick is to add more when it's dried to build up the colour intensity. I'm really impressed with these. 

Avene - I've switched back to my Avene Gel Cleanser lately. Apart from the fact that I always manage to get it in my mouth, I really like it. I find this Avene cleanser better for keeping acne at bay more than 'healing' it although this could just be my skin. Rubbing this in your face for a few seconds leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh, and to me, there is no better feeling in the the hot sticky weather.

Clarasonic Mia - I've had my Mia for a fair few months and can honestly say that I love it. I normally use it in the evening to thoroughly wash away everything but now it's hot, humid and raining I like to use it morning and night.

N-Spa Lemon Souffle Body Scrub - I could smell this all day! This smells of gorgeous sweet lemons, a little bit like sherbet, and is really refreshing and gentle. N Spa need to make this in to a normal shower gel.
