February Beauty Favourites 2015

Thursday, February 26, 2015
Another month, another favourites post! This month I have discovered some amazing new products that I have kindly been sent, products I've bought myself and some re-discoveries. My February favourites are a mixture of makeup, tools, skincare, body care and deodorants. 

Makeup: First up, an unusual product, the Smashbox Primer Water which I have been testing for a few weeks. It is the only primer that has ever wowed me! It you have dry, combination or dull skin then you definitely need to give this primer/setting spray a try. Another makeup favourite is my new Kiko Cosmetics Clic Eyeshadow Palette which I made myself and the palette and shadows were all on sale! Kiko eyeshadows are so pigmented, smooth and easy to blend with minimal fall down. I will have a full review of the palette on my blog soon. My final makeup favourite is a re-discovery, the Loreal Brow Artist Pencil which I already have in a lighter/warmer shade but I received the Dark Brunette shade in February's My Little Box and I LOVE it. 

Beauty tools: Now onto beauty tools, two of which are from one of my favourite brow brands, Tweezerman. The Tweezerman Eyelash Curlers are in my opinion, so much better than the Shu Uemura ones that I have. The Tweezerman Curler fits my eye shape so well, reaching all of the lashes from the inner to the outer corner easily without pinching the skin - amazing! I've also been loving the Tweezerman Tweezers which I've been a fan of for years, they are just so effective. The last beauty tool favourite is the Crown Brushes SS021 which is perfect for blending eyeshadow or concealer - I just wish the numbers were printed into the handles!

Body + Skincare: I have two body care product favourites this month, the first is a re-discovery, the Thea Super Nourish Body Butter which is so moisturising but it doesn't irritate my skin at all and it absorbs very quickly - I definitely want to try more of their body products. The second body product is rather expensive, it is the La Vanilla Vanilla Lemon Deodorant which is £10...yes, and I have bought another since! They are all natural, they smell incredible and they don't contain aluminium which is the main reason I wanted to switch to natural deodorants. As they are an American product they are expensive and until now they haven't been available at all in the UK - they are sold on Net-A-Porter. 

Onto skincare, a new product I have been testing out is the Antipodes Hosanna Serum which I have completely fallen in love with; it is so hydrating and plumping! Full review, here. My penultimate favourite is the Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Hydrator SPF8 which I have had in my skincare drawer for a while but I have only just started using it - it leaves my skin hydrated and so glowing! Last but not least a new mask, the Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Face Mask which is only a magazine sample but I have managed to get five full uses out of it. It is so hydrating, my skin drinks this mask up so quickly and it doesn't irritate my skin. 

I also have a couple of honourable mentions such as the Yes! Nurse Hand Cream which I am still loving along with the FAME Vanilla and Coffee scrub - I'm using it so much, it is wearing down quite quickly. There are all of my favourites and honourable mentions for February!

What have been your favourite beauty products for February?
