November Beauty Favourites

Friday, December 05, 2014
I cannot believe it is December already! This year has gone so quickly! Now it is time for my November favourites which is a little later this month as I've had so many blog posts to publish, including my big international christmas giveaway - don't forgot to enter! Here are the skincare, body care, makeup, haircare and makeup tools I have been loving throughout November. 

Firstly, skincare. I love been obsessed with the Rodial Stemcell Superfood Facial Oil for the past few months, it has quickly become a daily staple in my skincare routine. It gives my skin an instant moisture boost and radiance although it absorbs fairly quickly and doesn't leave my skin greasy - check out my full review, here. My next skincare favourite is the fantastic Nivea Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Water which is just as amazing as Bioderma, in my opinion. It leaves my skin so smooth, soft and cleansed without stripping the skin - however I wish it was better at removing waterproof mascara! My final skincare favourite for November is the Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream which I have almost finished. This day cream is so hydrating and smoothing, although I assume that is because it contains silicones (which aren't amazing for the skin) but its a great day cream for those bad skin days. 

Onto my haircare favourite of the month, the Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Conditioner which I received as a sample from Hairtrade to review. It is a massive 500ml bottle, it smells DIVINE and it is incredibly moisturising yet it doesn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy! I think I have found my perfect conditioner! Full review coming soon. 

I only have one body care favourite and it is the gorgeous Body Shop Glazed Apple Hand Cream (full review here) which doesn't irritate my eczema at all, it smells really nice and it absorbs quickly - what more could you ask for in a hand cream. Also it is so inexpensive!

My only makeup favourite of the month is a mascara! Shock horror! It is the Rimmel 100% Waterproof Mascara which gives natural but fluttery long lashes instantly and it definitely is waterproof; it is also very affordable. 

My last beauty favourites for November are makeup brushes, the first is from Bare Minerals and it is their Flawless Face Brush which is one of the softest brushes I have used and it is travel sized so it is great to keep in your handbag. I received it as part of a christmas starter kit from House of Fraser (full review here). My last favourite is a powder brush from Spectrum Brushes. I have reviewed their brushes previously and I cannot rate them enough! The brushes are cruelty free, incredibly soft and affordable. I would definitely recommend them. I recently bought a set and some individual brushes from their sale, some of which were only 99p!

There are my beauty favourites, what beauty products have you been loving recently? Have you tried any of the products featured in my post?


  1. Looking forward to the review of the hair conditioner - I'm always looking for one that does't make my scalp greasy and even when I only put it on the lengths it seems to weigh hair down.
