At the start of this year in a post called The Beauty Edit – My January Favourites, a little someone said she would be doing a monthly roundup of her favourite products. Well it didn’t quite happen and perhaps I was being slightly ambitious but just goes to show how quickly this year is already gathering pace. Here are my little helpers this month:
1)Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Nourishing Moisturiser
A cult favorite since the 1950s rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins. I’ve noticed my skin is a lot smoother since I’ve started applying this cream especially great for dry skin. I don’t think I’ve actually read a negative review about this product and I came across it whilst watching the Pixiwoo makeup tutorials. I can see why this cream is a classic amongst the stars.
2)MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
I have returned to my wedding day oil free long wearing foundation which gives medium to full coverage. I actually mix two shades to get a flawless natural-matte finish and although some MAC foundations can be quite yellow in pigment I find it helps cover uneven skin tone once blended. The liquid includes SPF 15 for everyday sun protection which is a must in my book.
3)Dior Addict Gloss
I have my firm Givenchy favourite lip gloss but decided to try Dior Addict for a change. The gloss does not disappoint and plumps lips for an intensified volume-boosting effect and gives a mirror shine. I love pink gloss and I wear this daily.
4)Murin Drops Bright & Moist Eyes
With some nocturnal episodes this month I have found that my eyes haven’t been their usual selves. These drops are specially formulated to give white bright eyes are fast acting and ideal for great looking eyes in an instant.
5)Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream
This daily moisturiser has really helped my make-up go on well and as I have dry sensitive skin I love how its rich texture is very soothing. The formulation with Vitamin E helps to protect the skin from sunlight with the added bonus of SPF15. It’s fairly thick but non greasy, with a lovely scent and sinks into my skin quickly and keeps my skin hydrated all day without hurting my bank balance.
