May Favourites

May favourites

This month I waved my brother off to Australia for a year and also ran my first 10k alongside my mum. I have been eating paleo and working to the Whole30 plan (see http://www.whole9life.com for details) which has surprisingly seen great results for my skin. Consequently I’ve not needed much make up so have been favouring these products:

Elemis Fresh Skin Mattifying Moisturiser: I normally have really dry skin but recently my T-zone has been totally unmanageable. This is a great product for combination skin and essentially acts as a primer as well as a moisturiser. I find it compliments my Revlon Photo Ready foundation perfectly and helps it stay in place all day. I got this free with a magazine a few months a go but will definitely be purchasing the real thing when I run out.

Yes To Carrots C Through the Night: I have never used a night cream before and this has been a good one for me to start with. It is paraben free and made for normal/dry skin and goes on beautifully. I apply after cleansing just before bed and it smells heavenly as well as feeling really luxurious. Love it!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer: This has been a cult favourite for ages now but I really have been in love with this product this month. When my skin feels great all I need it a dab of this on my blemishes and I don’t even need foundation. I like to use a little and add some mascara if I’m heading out for a run or to the gym. Perfect!

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge: I use this lip and cheek product in shade ‘blushed rose 3’ which I find works well with my pale skin tone. During the Spring/Summer months I always reach for a cream blush because its just so easy to use and feels light on the skin. Paired with the Elemis moisturiser above this will stay put on my cheeks for a good 6 hours without budging.

Benefit World Famous Neutrals: I bought this palette when Debenhams had 10% off and kind of bought it on a whim. I hadn’t read any reviews or really heard about it at all but I’m so pleased with the results. It comes with 2 cream eye shadows which I have actually used before and loved (‘r.s.v.p.’ and ‘no pressure!’) as well as four regular shadows which can be used to create a variety of looks. I know I’ll use this everyday until its empty. I am in love!
