Every month I plan on doing a favourites post, but I never quite get down to it! I am starting this month, and hopefully continue every month.
Revlon CC Cream
I am loving this CC cream, it has quite good coverage, and has become my go to CC cream for both day and night. It has spf 30, which is very important to me, and should be to everyone else too. It gives a glowing finish which I love, I am not much of a matte look fan. If you are looking for a good coverage CC cream, this is for you!
Essence Silky Touch Blush in 10 ‘Adorable’
This is the perfect colour blush for a healthy flushed look. And it is so affordable. Great pigment, and just one small swipe of your brush gives glowing cheeks.
Maybelline Colour Pop
I found this in the Maybelline sale box a while ago at my Dischem for only R46. It gives a slight tint to the lips, with a glossy finish. I love it, an is my go to lip product for quick make up days.
La Mer eye cream
I have started using this eye cream religiously morning and evening recently, apparently you are meant to start using eye cream from 25 years old, two years later I have started, but better late then never, right? It is creamy and rich, but not greasy, and La Mer, so why not!
Loreal Magic Blur Finishing Cream
I use this most days as a primer over my moisturiser and under my BB/CC cream. It blurs the skin, reducing the look of pores and fine lines. It really does blur the skin, and is amazing!
This was the first argan oil product I bought a couple of years ago, and promptly forgot about as I bought more and more. It has a lovely smell, and I use it on damp hair, as well as on my ends if my hair is looking scraggly. It is quite thick and gloopy, but once you rub it between your hands it becomes thin. It makes my hair super soft and smelling pretty.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream
I bought this recently, and I use it every night without fail! It looks very rich and thick, but it is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is not greasy at all, and I will definitely continue using it, and repurchase once it is finished.
Elim Medi Heel
This foot cream is amazing! No dry feet in sight for me this winter. It has a very nice smell, and has a sort of powder finish when it dries, which I love. There is nothing worse than putting moisturised feet in shoes and sliding all over the place! I would definitely buy this again!
Elim Medi Hand
This hand cream is very moisturising and non greasy. The cream has an aromatherapy smell to it, but it doesn’t last very long. I use this every time I wash my hands, and even in this dry winter I have not had dry nails or cuticles once. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from dry hands. The one thing I wish this product had is an spf, it is as important on your hands as on your face.
Great Bargain Update!
I bought all of this at Truworths yesterday for only R620, it is worth more than R1200. More details on the great bargains page here
