February Favourites!

It is the end of another month (already?!) so I have a few products I would like to share with you that I have been loving this month. They aren't the funnest of products as I was trying to save as much as possible last month, but I hope you find this interesting anyway!

First of all I have been loving the Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer - phew long name. This stuff is great to slap on in the morning when I can't really be bothered using a brush. It gives a really decent coverage for a tinted moisturiser too. The only problem I have with this is the colour range isn't great, I have the shade Extra Light and it's still a little dark for me, but I can make it work. 

The NARS Laguna Bronzer has been a go to to give my face some colour. It's an idiot proof product as I find you can never put too much on so I never look orange if I go a bit crazy with it. It has a slight hint of shimmer to it just to give a bit of glow, and I just think it's perfect. Need I say any more about this product?

Next up is the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner. I started using this stuff every night this month, and in conjunction with the next product it has really cleared up my skin. I still get the odd few spots on my jawline but nothing as big and as many as there used to be (gross I know). This stuff is a toner with tamarind fruit acids to eliminate impurities and dead skin cells, and white nettle extract to tighten to pores. I do find that this stuff really works, so if you're looking for an exfoliator that's very gentle and not a manual one, I would give this a try. This stuff works for every skin type too. 

The other product which has been saving my skin this month is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (the original, not the plus, as I haven't tried that yet!) I use this every night after the Clarins toner to help unblock any pores and help get rid of any spots I have and it has really been getting into my skin and getting it looking decent! I don't think I could live without this product!

And last but not least is a lipstick. I have been wanting to find a nude lipstick that would work on me for ages, i've been to the MAC counter, Bobbi Brown, all of them and nothing seemed to sit right on my lips. I have very brightly coloured lips naturally, and as I am so super pale it has been hard to find something that doesn't make me look ill. But I have found something, and I have been loving it. It is the the Stay Pout lipstick in the colour Going Steady by Seventeen. Yep, Seventeen. One of the most bargainous brands out there has supplied me with this beautiful peachy nude lipstick. This product doesn't have any glitter in it but it's not matte, it's kind of a sheeny finish which is perfect. If you have never tried a Seventeen lipstick, I am telling you now to get to a counter and try one. They have great pigmentation and lasting power. I have been loving layering this one with Tanya Burrs lip gloss in the colour Chic. 

Well that's everything for this month, my 5 most loved products of February.

What have you been loving this last month? Any recommendations for me? 

Lots of love,
