October Favourites

So it's been a minute since my last monthly favourites and I'm not really sure why but today I'm bringing them back! Recently I've been venturing out a bit more with my beauty purchases and have added some new brands/products into my daily routine. They've all received my seal of approval so today I thought I would show you all of the bits I've been loving over the past few weeks! 
october favourites 2018 blog post
Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Booster* | I've realized that I only really tend to get blemishes around that time of the month and when I do they're a right pain but this booster has been amazing for speeding up the healing process and stopping them becoming more inflamed. Salicylic Acid kills bacteria that causes spots and Niacinamide reinforces the skin's defence barrier and helps even out skin tone. It has a thin serum like texture and is completely clear so no-one will know you've got it on. How amazing is that?

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel | I mentioned this in my Morning Skincare Routine post last month and it's still the product I've been reaching for the most. Sometimes oil based cleansers can be a little heavy for everyday use but this leaves my skin feeling beautifully clean and soft with no greasy film. The Pumpkin Enzymes help gently exfoliate while Vitamins C & E restore and nourish the skin. I've only had it a few months and I'm already nearly halfway through it! 

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer | ChantillyIt was hard to decide whether to include this or my trusty Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer but I've included the NARS one as it's slightly more natural and not as thick. It's not as 'radiant' as they claim but it still has a beautiful satin finish that you can leave or set depending on your skin type. I also love the subtle yellow undertone it has as it makes it perfect for concealing redness/discolouration! 

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick | Pillow Talk | I think every CT fan will tell you that once you try one of her lipsticks, there's no turning back. I don't how what it is about this formula but it gives you the smoothest/plumpest pout whilst still being matte and hydrating! I need some new shades asap! If you have any suggestions holla at me! 

Nivea Sun UV Face Sunscreen Shine Control SPF 50* | We all know we're supposed to apply SPF all year round but during the winter months, it can be really off-putting having a thick, gloopy cream sitting on your face. If I don't get sun protection from my foundation I love using this new mattifying lotion from Nivea. It has such a lovely texture that doesn't disrupt makeup and has the classic scent which always perks me up and makes me think of Summer! 

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo | Lightning Dust & Fire Crystal | If I said this was the most intense, wet looking, dreamiest highlighter I've ever used I'd be seriously understating! There was so much hype around this brand and particularly these duos when they first launched but at the time I wasn't very interested. Fast forward a year later and I'm completely obsessed! It's obvious by now that I'm into the glowy look and a mix of these shades dusted on the cheekbones, cupids bow and nose will make you look angelic!

Gosh Cosmetics Velvet Touch Lip Liner | Nougat Crisp | This has been one of my favourite lip pencils for years. It has just the right amount of pink and brown and helps define and shape the lips without being too noticeable against my fair skin. The texture is super smooth and easy to apply and it lasts a lot longer than others I've tried. And it's only £4.99 - bargain! 


Have you tried any of these products recently?
