Monthly Favourites | February

 
It's the end of the month, that means it's time for February Favourites!
Read on to see what I've been loving this month and why...
 
  
Moroccanoil Oil Treatment for All Hair Types
At first, I didn't expect myself to fall for the Moroccan Oil hype, I thought that I'd just stick with the cheaper alternatives and everything would all be fine and dandy, but after receiving this small bottle for Christmas I have realised that Moroccan Oil deserves every single little praise that it receives and it really is 'the best'. Take it from somebody who owns 11 hair oils.. this one knocks them all out of the park. A definite favourite of all hair products that I have used and I already have plans to buy a larger 100ml bottle - £30 is worth it, honest! It makes such a difference to the general quality of my hair, making it so much less frizzy and a lot more soft and smooth but it feels completely free of product; it's magic.
 
 

 

Ciate Nail Varnish - 'Cupcake Queen'
I shouldn't even have to say words to be able to convince you all of why I love this nail varnish; just look at that colour! It's amazing! It's a super vibrant, hot hot hot pink with slight blue undertones that just makes it even more pink. Ciate polishes are high quality with wide brushes for easy application, non-streaky formula that coats the nail in one application and a long lasting chip-free finish.
 


Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers - 'Nova'
I've not gone totally ga-ga over the whole Apocalips phase, I like them but I don't love them, with the exception of one shade in particular: Nova. Nova is a dusky pink suitable for everday wear if you like to carry a bright lip. It's bright and super pigmented but still not too in your face. These have a glossy finish that wear down to a matte stain with incredibly staying power so no wonder they've been popular recently, but it's just this certain shade that's won it for me. I've done a full review of these lip lacquers including three other shades which you can see here: link.

 
Burts Bees Mango Lip Balm
Everybody needs a good quality lip balm in cold, frosty weather and this one that I call my 'coat pocket' lip balm (I hope someone else has those); the one that is needed the most and is always in reach right there in your jacket pocket. Burts Bees lip balms are 100% natual and leave the lips feeling nourishing and moisturised, but not 'sticky', just velvety smooth. Plus it's got a super fresh and fruity scent of mango - yummy! As an added bonus these are only £2.99 from Feel Unique (link) - they're one of the best lip balms I've ever tried so I would definitely recommend them.



Lush 'Grease Lightning' Spot Treatment
I don't know what it is that's brought this on, but a family of spots have decided that my face is a good place to hang out for the past few weeks - nice one guys. And it's that annoying situation where as soon as you think you've said goodbye to one, you wake up and another has appeared somewhere else. This spot treatment from Lush is what I've been using to tackle the little buggars these past few weeks and it's really effective (although I don't know what's making them appear, this sure makes them disappear fast!). It's a clear gel that contains tea tree and witch hazel - two super spot fighting ingredients - and it gets to work super quick and making both the size and redness reduce dramatically. In the majority of cases the spot would 100% be gone after 24 hours, redness and all! I can see me buying this again and not needing any other spot treatments in my life.



And that's it for my favourites this month!
Hope you've enjoyed reading.
Do we have any faves in common?

  14. That Ciate nail polish is such a beautiful shade! The only problem I have with them is that the bows fall off so quickly :( I love how pretty they look with them on, especially against that pink colour! xx
