It’s been a few months since my last favourites and there’s been some standout products I keep finding myself reaching for over and over again!
& Other Stories Punk Bouquet Body Wash
This smells absolutely lovely, sometimes I find myself just opening this up for a quick sniff in the bathroom even if I’m not hopping in the shower. This is described as a frothy vanilla soda on a rebellious rose bouquet. This is sweet and feminine and I want everything in my life to smell like this. Definitely need to get myself more from this range. I also really enjoy that this has a pump, it makes life much easier and I’m less wasteful.
Tom Ford Black Orchid
Another amazing fragrance is Tom Ford’s Black Orchid, this is my favourite perfume ever and I always start pulling it out in autumn and winter. I keep this one for special occasions as it’s so pricey but it’s so warm and wintery I’d love to drench myself in it daily if I could. I’m going to go and check out some other Tom Ford fragrances as this lasts all day – and even a second if I’ve sprayed it on a jumper or something and have reworn it the next day and I think that might make a good recipe for a wedding perfume, but definitely need something a bit more spring/summer friendly than this glorious dark autumn winter fragrance.
The Hero Project Glow Drops
I recently reviewed this skincare range from the Hero Project and if I’d not already finished up the moisturiser that would have featured as well. I’ve been so impressed with the difference that this range made to my skin and these glow drops make such a difference to my complexion. The full review is here so I won’t talk about it too much – but these are still a nightly staple.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye
I’ve had this in the best part of 6 months now and I’ve barely used this. 2 weekends ago I had a reaction to a new eyeshadow that made me want to scratch my eyeballs out, following that I was left with dry eyelids and a dry under area. After trying a lot of creams I found ones that helped relieve the itching whilst this actually speedily improved the situation. I’m going to use this for another week or so before I write up my full review, but it got the dryness under control in no time.
Makeup Geek Manny MUA Palette
I’ve actually had to hide this form myself at points since getting in to stop myself reaching for it as much. This palette is really versatile and you can create everything from an everyday light and wearable look to a heavier night look. What I love about this palette is that it’s not a bunch of boring neutrals but it’s still completely wearable. I posted a first impressions, swatches and looks post here using this palette.
NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade
I’ve had this for ages and had only used it a couple of times, I found myself reaching for this recently after I seem to have misplaced my Benefit Gimme Brow in my draw (seriously need to find that because it’s so quick for mornings). I ended up using this for the for my work Christmas party and the guy who did my eye makeup in MAC said, I’m not going to touch your brows as you’ve already done them perfectly. Considering I have no experience with brow pomades that’s great. I’ll be posting a review of this once I’ve used it for a bit longer as I want to see how it fairs for drying out, but for the past few weeks I’ve been loving this. This dark cool brown is the perfect shade and it doesn’t break the bank either.
