I feel like I say this every year and it’s probably starting to sound like a broken record but I still CAN’T BELIEVE that May is already over. This year has been such a blur.
Anyway, on to the favourites!
First up, we have my absolute all-time favourite face wipes. I have tried so many brands of face wipes it’s not funny and honestly have never come close to finding anything I like nearly as much.
These are the Crop Natural Skincare double-sided facial wipes. I have never found something that takes the grime off my face quite as well. I have super frustrating skin, it’s combination to the extreme. I will manage to have fairly dry skin while also having an extremely oily t-zone so my nose area gets a bit clogged up if I don’t pay special attention to keeping my face well cleaned. The texture on these wipes is amazing. One side is for exfoliating, and it almost feels like I’ve used an exfoliating scrub when I’m done with it – just not quite as harsh. The other side is the complete opposite – super soft! I’m yet to find a wipe that feels as soft (though the Burt’s Bees ones probably come close – but that’s all I liked about those wipes). For some reason this brand is only being sold at Coles so if you want some, you’ll have to grab some next time you’re buying groceries 😉
Next up, we have my go-to foundation. The Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Ivory for Combination/Oily skin is my FAVOURITE foundation. I’ve tried a few liquid foundations but always been super hesitant to change too often because of the price of some liquid foundations, but after hearing so many good reviews on this one I had to give it a go and I’m so glad that I did. It stays in place all day, even with my terribly oily skin. It has great, build-able coverage and doesn’t leave me feeling super cake-y. Plus, they actually have a shade that suits my skin tone! I have found it really difficult to find foundations to match my skin tone, and one of the (many) reasons I love this line of foundation is the awesome range of colours.
Hand in hand with that, I use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I’m sure if you watch beauty videos on YouTube or read blogs relating to beauty you will have heard of this concealer because it’s a favourite for sure and I can see why. I struggled for ages because I loved the concealer but I had the wrong shade and was for some silly reason under the impression that because it’s ‘technically’ the lightest shade that there wouldn’t be another that would suite me – boy was I wrong! I love this concealer, it doesn’t crease under my eyes, provides really good coverage and is super affordable.
Speaking of hands! My favourite hand cream of the moment is by Thank You. I didn’t know they’d brought out hand cream until I walked past them at the shops the other day. If you don’t know much about the brand, head over here to find out more about what they do and how they do it. It’s always nice to know that what you’re purchasing is going to go on to help other people. The cream itself is great, it smells great and soaks in really quickly which is primarily what I like in a hand cream.
Honourable mention to the new Cotton On hand creams. The Pomegranate one in the photo smells so good. A little goes a long way, I’ve so far gotten 6 uses out of one of the sachets! The cream also soaks in really well.
Speaking of things that smell good (my goodness I’m on a roll with that line…) this deodorant smells SO GOOD. I’ll be honest, I have to reapply once or twice if I really want to continue to free of stink, but I am just so over aerosol deodorant it’s not funny. They all smell the same, they all make me not want to breathe the stuff in because chemicals and just… I’m not into it. So I’m trying some natural deodorants. If you have any suggestions please let me know!!
These Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment shave heads are so good. I’ve always hated shaving because I have dry skin and would always feel like I was aggravating my skin whenever I shaved – these solve that problem! They make the shaver glide over my skin and afterwards my skin feels so soft, not dry at all!
I’d have to say this is my favourite Scentsy Bar of the month. I’ve been craving cookies something fierce (probably because of the sugar) but I’ve been trying really hard to avoid things that are super super high in carbs when they’re not totally necessary. It’s not something I’ll always be doing, it’s more to wean myself off a little, but either way, it’s been so nice to have my room smell like cookies!
These Scent Circles are so so good to have in my car. They make the whole car smell so good and they last a good amount of time! The ones I’ve got in the picture here are quite old ones, they’ve come out with some cute new designs recently, but the product is still the same and still amazing. I love changing them up whenever the scent starts to fade.
There you have it folks, my favourites for the month! As I’m writing this I feel like there’s probably a few things I’ve forgotten but that’s ok – they’ll probably feature in next month’s post!
