December has been a busy month which is something I am used to, Work Party's, a few of my friends birthdays alongside planning for the big day (which has somehow been and gone already!) and other festive events. I have been trying and testing lots of new products this month and have found some that I can't even imagine not having in my life now! January's favourites might be even bigger after some of the goodies I have recieved for Christmas! I can't wait to get testing! Come and see which items I have narrowed down in my last favourites post of 2016!
Yankee Candle - Snowflake Cookie
If you're someone who doesn't really like sweet smells, then hold your nose now, because this scent really won't be for you. However, if, like me, you LOVE a bitta' sweet stuff then I suggest you get your nose into this. It has been filling my home with sweetness all Decemeber and thankfully due to the GIANT jar I still have some left. I am a big fan of Yankee Candles, I find the scents are super strong but not overpowering and the scent lingers for a while after burning. Its a big thumbs up from me!
Dove - Soft Feel Deodorant
I have been using Dove Deodorant for as long as I can remember, I have always just used the original one and never even considered using anything else from any other brands. So naturally when Dove contacted me asking if I would like to try the Soft Feel range I jumped at the chance. They reminded me that with winter being upon us it is so important to keep our skin hydrated, not forgetting our underarms, which when you think about is so true? When do you ever think about moisturising your underarms? This soft feel deodrant has a beautiful scent that reminds me of baby powder (which I love). It is super gentle on your underarms and leaves you feeling so soft and moisturised all day long. I would highly recommend trying DOVE if you haven't already! You can read more about it here.
NUXE - Precious Scented Shower Oil
I recently sampled the NUXE shower oil in a Glossybox/Birchbox and I instantly LOVED it. I virtually used the whole sample tube up in one shower. I knew right away that I had to pick up some full sized ones, and at £10 each they are obviously quite pricey for shower gels. However they are currently on 3 for 2 at bootshere, making them a little more easy to justify! I love every single thing about them, they feel luxurious on the skin, they smell spa-like and leave you with a light scent all day. After showering with them I notice my skin feels softer and more moisturised than with other shower gels and the touch of golder shimmer leaves a slight sheen on my skin that gives me a bit of a glow! If you are into luxury bath/shower products I can guarantee you would love this! Pick one uphere.
Stila - Stay All Day Liquid Liner- Intense Black
I'm sure I have mentioned this product a million times before, but after repurchasing it AGAIN this month, I thought it was time I added it to a favourites post, because, quick frankly, it's my favourite. After years and years of being a winged liner gal, I can tell you that I have tried my fair share of liquid liners over the years, and simply nothing compares to this. The felt tip end is so easy to use and direct allowing me to create perfect, even flicks, which isn't something that comes natural to me, trust me! The shade "intense black" really is the blackest of blacks and is highly pigmented. A final point is that when I say it lasts all day, I am not lying. I can apply this at 6am in the morning and it will still be perfect at 10pm at night when I take my make up off. It's a dream. Pick one up and give it a try yourself here from my favourite online beauty store.
Grow Gorgeous Shine Serum
Grow Gorgeous is a fairly new brand that I have been introduced to, and also one that I fell for pretty quickly. The easy to use, simply explained products are exactly what I like to see. They don't give you huge false promises and the products ACTUALLY work. The newest product to be added to my collection is the Shine Serum, it is a leave in treatment which instantly gives my hair life and shine. I use the product just after washing my hair, I towel dry it and apply a few drops and rub between my hands before applying all over my hair. (I do however avoid my roots as I like to keep that area as clean as possible to prevent any greasy looking effect). When I then dry and style my hair I instantly notice a difference in the look and feel of my hair. It looks so much healthier and has a natural shine to it which makes it look so smooth. I have also found that it has helped with my frizz and fly away ends making the whole look of my hair improve! Yet another product from Grow Gorgeous I have loved and I already can't wait to try more! Get yours here.
Perricone MD Skincare
Being a brand I have always been eager to try, and after only using the skincare for a few weeks I have been so excited to tell you about it. I was lucky enough to recieve the Plasma Essentials set to test out the best of what Perricone MD has to offer! The set comes with 4 very generous sized products and each and everyone have impressed me far more than I could have ever expected. The range is designed to attack dead skin cells and help hydrate the skin. To give you a good idea of what you can expect from the set, I thought I'd give you a quick breakdown of the products included and what you can expect from them:
Blue Plasma Cleasning Treatment: A Deep Cleansing treatment which cleanses, exfoliates and conditions the skin.
Hyalo Plasma: Used 3 types of hyaluronic acid to create a visibly hydrated and firm surface which smoothing lines and wrinkles.
Cold Plasma Eye: This product gives amazing hydration to your eye area, whilst instantly helping with the apperance of puffiness and dark circles.
Photo Plasma: A super hydrating moisturiser that also benefits from SPF30 protecting your skin from harmful rays.
The products have all taken me by suprise, especially by the ease of use! When I first opened the set, the names confused me a little and I felt a little worried I wouldn't know how to use them! However after a quick read of the box, they are all so easy to use and it is such a simple routine to follow, with quick and great results. I use all the products together but the ones that really stand out for me has to be the cleansing treatment as it leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh, I also love the photo plasma as I love knowing that not only does it make my skin feel amazing, but I also have the SPF back up.
You can pick up the same set as me here or you can see the full range of perricone products here.
