(Belated) February Beauty Favourites

As a bit of a change to the norm, I've decided to do a beauty based post! A) Because I love reading them on other blogs, and B) Because I've fallen in love with so many products over February and I wanted to share! I didn't really know what would be the best way to photograph/format this post, so bear with me here! As it was so sunny I thought it would be a shame to waste the lovely natural light, but unfortunately the logos don't show up very well as a result. Anyway, here are my absolute favourite new discoveries for the month...

1) Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer So for me personally, I don't know that this makes an enormous amount of difference to my skin, but the spray method of applying toner is lovely, I feel refreshed after using it, and it has such a relaxing (but subtle) fragrance. I use this at night after cleansing and before mouisturising.

2) Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water I was really excited to use this product as Micellar waters seem to be everywhere at the moment, and at £4.99 this one was such a snip that I decided to ditch the face wipes and give it a go. I was dubious at first and didn't think it would live up to the hype, but it definitely does! It helps my makeup come off like a dream, and I am delighted to say my sensitive skin has had no issue with this product.

3) Lee Stafford Argan Oil Nourishing Miracle Oil* If this were a perfume, I would wear it always. It smells amazing - somehow simultaneously spicy and sweet, and gives ends of hair some nice, shiny TLC. I also love that at 50ml this is perfect for overnight stays and holidays - mine will be coming to Malta with me in April!

4) The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter I can't imagine many people haven't tried The Body Shop Body Butters at some point, they are classic - hydrating, smell lovely and are a bit of a fail safe beauty buy. But I think this one is a bit special, as it's the perfect relaxed, pampering smell. I highly recommend everyone go in store and smell this for themselves!!

5) The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter The freshest, zingiest smell, bound to get anyone ready for spring (and get me out of bed in the morning!)

6) Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm in Not An Illusion Phew! Long name! The packaging has started to wear a bit so apologies for that in the pictures, but I rather like the packaging for carrying about day to day. Beautiful natural rosey colour and very mouisturising... it's only a shame about the coco buttery/vanillery scent (which you may love, but I'm not an enormous sugary sweet scent lover!)

7) Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium* Last but not least is, technically, a March favourite as I received it this week, but I love it so much I had to share it with you as soon as possible! I also received the darker shade which is also just as good, but for me personally I prefer the lighter shade. I was sceptical about this product initially as I love the Benefit Browzings compact so very much I didn't think this could live up to it..but alas it has! I find this is a fantastic product for day to day wear as it is quick and easy to apply, looks super natural and once it's on, it won't budge all day.
