May Favourites 2015

These are all of the products I enjoyed during the month of May. Some are new finds, some are old staples.




Skincare


Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm
Space NK

This has been my obsession since I bought it! It is my desert island product and I couldn't be without it. Every night I look forward to cleansing, because with this, it's a pleasure not a chore. It smells incredible, and leaves my skin looking fresher and more radiant every single time. Full review posted.


La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water
Boots

I picked this up recently as a kind of 'substitute' for the Serozinc spray. I love spray toners and this one is particular is so hydrating and cooling on the skin. It contains anti-oxidants and is a great first step to adding moisture to your skin that won't dehydrate off.


Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturiser
Boots

This is my go to when my skin feels irritated, sore or tight/dry. Sometimes after treatments or hair removal my skin can get red and I know it needs something basic and calming. This moisturiser does exactly that, it's rich enough to soften and soothe without leaving you greasy. It's a great one for people with sensitive issues such as dryness, redness and tightness.

Bodycare


Mio Liquid Yoga
Space NK

This is a mini investment for those who have aches, pains and sore muscles. It's about £26 but is definitely worth it if you like relaxing baths, that ease muscle tension and really de stress. It has an amazing seaweed/minty smell and it instantly gives me a spa feeling.

Haircare


Tangle Teezer
Selfridges

I'll be honest and say I don't like this colour, at the time of buying it there was only this one, so I just picked it. For years I saw people talking about the Tangle Teezer but at that time I wasn't bothered about it. I don't get tangly hair, however I wanted something that will brush through my hair smoother than a comb. This does just that and I like it's tapered shape so it fits my hand perfectly.

Nails



I don't know a great deal about nail care, but I started using this cuticle remover and it has made a world of difference to how my nails look. When I use it, my nails look tidy, the edges are cleaner and makes it so much better when painting my nails. This softens the cuticles and makes it really easy to remove them. Staple in my nail care routine.

Make-up


Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Boots

This is the only mascara i've used throughout all of May. It adds volume, length and definition to both the top and bottom lashes. I love the shape of the wand, it curves around the lashes to coat, lift and separate. You can apply two, three coats and it still doesn't get clumpy. 


Milani Color Statement Lipstick - Nude Creme
Cocktail Cosmetics

I love everything about this lipstick from the packaging, formula, colour and pay off. It provides great coverage, it's super creamy and gives me the perfect medium nude pink lip.


MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - NC15
MAC 

I have been loving this through May, it gives me the coverage I want without caking in the certain areas I apply it. I use it as concealer, to tidy up my brows and even as an eyeshadow base under a smokey eye. It sets nicely and goes on smoothly. 


Milani Baked Blush -Luminoso
Cocktail Cosmetics

This is the perfect Spring/Summer blush. It's a beautiful peachy, pink coral shade that suits everyone. It has some shimmer through it, but when on the cheeks it just has a beautiful glow. It is very pigmented so a little gives the perfect pop on the cheeks.

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Lovely favorites Maiya! I can't brush my hair without my tangle teezer, I have fine hair that gets SO tangled! I really want to try the Maybelline mascara, but I have to use up some of my mascaras first hahaha! :) x

  2. Thank you for posting the first ever comment on my blog! The Tangle Teezer is the only thing I use now. You can never have too many to try haha :) I would definitely get the mascara! I actually use one mascara at a time, I just get awkward with having more than two open. It's probably the best drugstore mascara I've tried! x

    1. You're welcome dear :) I'm glad to be the first one!! I always use two mascaras when I do my makeup for better results. First I start with a rubber wand to give my lashes length and separation and then I use a regular wand that is big to get volume and drama! ;) x

    2. I'll have to try that! I don't normally pay attention to the wand material, more the shape. Your method sounds great. :) X
