November Beauty Favourites

Neal's Yard Remedies - Aromatic Foaming Bath
(Included in the herbal organic bathing collection) £13.00 *

So as you may be aware from my last post, I was recently introduced to the brand Neal's Yard Remedies. Although I've heard of this brand for a long time I had never tried there products. Since I don't have a bath (just a shower, I miss my bath) I have been using the Aromatic Foaming Bath product to soak my feet. I never thought this would work but I've found it so relaxing. The smell is also incredible and soothing. I'm not normally a fan of herbal smelling products but I've found it very relaxing (obviously a glass of wine in hand helps too)

The Body Shop - Vitamin C Skin revive 30ml £13.00
The body shop is a brand I'm much more familiar with. I often forger to look in the body shop for good quality affordable make up and skin care, yet upon my little visit there last week to pick up a secret Santa present for a girl at work I noticed the skin revive cream/primer what I had tried a while back at there make up master class. I'm not sure whether to refer to this as a cream or a serum as it's texture is a little more unusual compared to other face creams. The reviver gives an instant radiance boost to skin and contains light reflecting practicals so it can be worn on its own or as a primer. I have noticed it makes my skin instantly more radiant and you can almost see the sparkling shimmer-esk effect (in a good way, it won't leave you with a shiny face). In addition I've found it helps my make up glide on so much easier. 

I've only worn this product a handful of times so far (it's not exactly day wear make up) yet every time I've had amazing compliments. Everyone seems to instantly assure with the bright blue colour its Urban Decay and are shocked when I tell them it's Rimmel. The colour is very easy to apply considering the pencil is chunky. The colour is very pigmented and is very easy to apply. The colour lasts well, in fact it lasts so well its a little hard to remove. Considering that's my only complaint the products an absolute bargain. Since I'm so impressed I can't wait to treat myself to a few more shades, the bad girl bronze looks pretty festive. 

Maybelline - Super stay 10hour tint gloss, timeless plum 380 £6.99
The product gives a nice tint and although the colour isn't as vibrant as other long wear lip glosses and lip tints the colour is good for both day and night wear. The shape of the brush is a little too round what makes it a little difficult to apply but this is just a small criticism. The price is very reasonable and one of the cheapest on the market for long wear lip tints. 

Show Beauty - Treatment oil  60ml £50.00
I've been raving to anyone and everyone about this products, looking a little weird asking my friends to feel my hair. For me this is my ultimate hair care product at the moment.
