It gives a shimmery finish when applied on the skin. I like this shade as it is a cool yellow but it warms up on the skin and makes the face brighter. It is water based and has a consistency of a soft crayon, it is easy to apply and blends in easily with foundation. A make-up junkie must-have. Available from Asos, £6.50.
Once again it is favourites time! I hope you have got your halloween outfit and makeup ready! I will be posting some Halloween posts and looks on my Instagram so make sure you stay updated! This month’s favourites are filled with skincare, bodycare and makeup as I had more time for pampering!
Bean Body Coffee Bean Scrub Coconut
There is nothing better during a cold Autumn morning than a hot shower with a coffee scrub. Coffee Scrub has great benefits for the skin such as anti-cellulite properties, reduction of scars and blemishes and it nourishes the skin.
The Bean Body Coconut Coffee Scrub is made with organic Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil. The coffee beans, the pink salt, sugar and Cacao are great exfoliants which effectively remove dead skin cells. The scrub is quite tough, which is exactly what you need to get rid of the unwanted skin layer. The cold pressed coconut oil combined with Vitamin E are ideal for nourishing the skin after exfoliation, leaving it silky smooth. Available from my Libbie Club, £14.95.
iMantara Peaceful Palms Balancing Jasmine and Citrus Hand Lotion
You know that everything that has Neroli and Jasmine is right up my street so this hand lotion won me over straight away. The scent is a combination of Neroli water, Mandarin essential oil, Coconut, Jojoba and Sweet Almond oil and anti-ageing Honeysuckle extract.
It is a non-greasy hand lotion, which sinks in quickly and leaves your hands feeling smooth and nourished. I find it hard to find a good hand cream, and this actually is one of my latests hand cream favourites as not only it does the job but also looks lovely and the smell is divine. And let’s not forget the packaging – it looks stunning on my makeup table. I love it! Available here, £3.99.
Tofu Moritaya Soy Milk Yogurt Facial Mask
My flatmate from Beijing introduced this face mask to me recently and Wow, it is so great! The brand is from Japan, and this mask is a very popular drugstore mask amongst the Asian consumers. The main ingredients include soy milk, soya bean, yogurt and honey which are well known for their beneficial skincare properties.
This mask is a rinse-off mask, so you apply it onto the cleansed skin, wait 5 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. I loved my skin after each application as it is very hydrating and nourishing, leaving my skin plump and healthy looking. There is hardly any smell, and the consistency is like one of a face cream. It comes in this cute plastic box, and there is a lot of product so it will last you for a while. I am a fan! Available from Amazon, for £17.17.
Nouveau Lashes Eye Make-up Remover
I recently received this lovely micellar gel Eye Make-Up Remover from Nouveau Lashes and I was amazed at how gently it removed the eye makeup. I usually struggle to remove eye makeup, and I feel that most products irritate the eye area, but this micellar gel is really gentle and efficient (no need for rubbing or rinsing off).
I never used micellar gel so this is something new for me, but I will definitely repurchase this item as it leaves the eye area cleansed and hydrated as well, thanks to the prebiotic ingredients. It is suitable for both lash extensions and natural lashes. Available here, £14.99.
NYX Hydra Touch Brightener (HTB02 Glow)
Since NYX came to the UK I cannot stop using their products. This is my new favourite from this brand, the Hydra Touch Brightener in Glow Shade. It is designed to illuminate the face so should be applied to cheekbones, cupid bow and temples.
Jane Iredale 24- Karat Gold Dust Shimmer Powder
I recently discovered this brand during the Beauty Bloggers awards. Jane Iredale makes mineral makeup products which not only look good on the skin, but are also great for the skin. All products are multipurpose so you are free to experiment with how you use them.
I was really excited to try the 24-Karat Gold Dust as I love wearing gold as an eyeshadow or as a highlighter. I found that this product looked great as an eyeshadow as it brightened my eye area and added a touch of glamour to my makeup. It comes in a loose powder, so you need to use the pot to sprinkle some inside, and a brush to apply. Overall it was long-lasting, looked very glamorous, and could be layered for a more evening look. Available from Jane Iredale, £15.
