Favorites | October 2017

Another month of new products in my stash and now I can't help but use them on a daily basis.  These products have readily become a staple in my routine.

1. ELF Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer

This was the very first eyelid primer I used.  At the time, the Urban Decay Primer Potion was blowing up on social media.  Being a 14 year old with very few pennies in my pocket, I couldn't help but look for a cheaper alternative.  7 years later, I am still repurchasing the same eyelid primer.  The eyeshadow does not budge and is long lasting.  Nothing smudges and I look as fresh as a daisy at the end of the day on my eyelids.

Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer in Sheer: £3.00

2. Aerin Rose Lip Conditioner

I am always skeptical with overly priced, daily-use products. This lip conditioner's aroma is that of a beautiful and fresh bed of roses.  It certainly feels luxurious on the lips; eliminating chapped cracks instantaneously.  When I feel my lips are struggling from over-use of liquid lipsticks, this is a very refreshing therapy.  Although I am hesitant on purchasing the product in the future due to the price, I do recommend it to those who can afford it.

Aerin Rose Lip Conditioner: £21.00

3. Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

Washing my hair is the bane of my existence.  As it is so thick and unruly, washing it is extremely stressful.  I wish I could say I resemble the girls in shampoo adverts, but instead I come out red-eyed with tired forearms.  It truly is a work out.  Therefore, dry shampoo is my saviour on lazy days.  This one smells delightful and isn't too expensive though there are cheaper alternatives I enjoy using too (such as Batiste).  Although it is slightly on the higher price mark for dry shampoos, it does smell lovely and is easy to rub out.  It take's away the oil slick that tends to build up at the roots with fast absorbance powers.  I felt that four sprays was more than enough at my roots to get rid of all the excess oil.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk 150mL: £8.00

4. Coconut Body Butter by The Body Shop

Unfortunately, I left all of my perfumes back in America prior to my move to England.  This was highly saddening as all I had was deodorant.  Thank goodness that my good friend came to the rescue and had gifted my mother (I'm 'borrowing' the body butter) a Body Shop coconut gift set (purchase here).  I absolutely love how this butter leaves my skin feeling glorious throughout the day and the scent isn't too overpowering but lasting enough.  Personally, my main aim was to smell neutral or good with my lack of perfume options.  I absolutely love the Body Shop body butters so this was for sure a hit I've been using every morning of October.

Coconut Body Butter 50mL: £6.00
Coconut Body Butter 200mL: £15.00

5. Jersey Shore Cosmetics My Last Secret Eyelash Curler

I never thought I would be someone that would fandom over a 'Jersey Shore' item but here I am.  I got scent this Eyelash Curler in a Test Tube beauty box.  I was using an ELF eyelash curler for over 7 years and only changed the sponge once.  Thus, to have a new one was quite the present.  I find that it does indeed curl my eyelashes, giving them a very natural lift from the roots and holds in place throughout the day.  If I want to give my lashes a break from mascara, I will just curl them and head out the door.
