May was all about trying to shop my stash and give neglected items some extra TLC. My skin also acted up and I needed to really look after it and found a routine that seems to work for me. It was quite easy to pick my favourites for this month and I am really happy with all of the products.
As you will see, it's really not that much. Let's get started.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution:
It's heaven sent! I no longer bother with baby wipes or cleansing milks. This is my new best friend when removing make-up. I will post a more detailed review/comparison of this product in the near future.
Avene Thermal Water:
I use this spray after I cleanse my skin or to spritz my face to get rid of the powdery look on days when I use powder. It's been a staple in my collection for over a year now.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair:
This is such a staple in so many people's night time routine. I use this serum most nights after I cleanse and before I use moisturizer. Not sure what it does exactly, but my skin likes it.
Caudalie Beauty Water:
There is such a hype surrounding this product and I totally caved in as well. I use it as a toner and love the herbal scent. Be warned tho, some people can't stand the scent.
Rival de Loop Regeneration rich eye cream:
This is a German drugstore eye cream. It's very basic but works to moisturize my under eye area.
Origins A Perfect World Moisturizer:
This is the moisturizer I got on Earth day. I really like it. It's light weight and doesn't clog my pores. I also like that it's not filled with chemicals and parabens.
Bourjouis Healthy Mix Foundation:
This has become such a favourite. It's light-weight, smells delicious and looks nice and glowy. I use this in 53.
MAC Dainty Mineralize blush:
This is my all time favourite blush. I always come back to this! It's a gorgeous peachy pink mineralize blush with a bit of sheen.
Milani Luminous blush:
Love the golgen sheen in this peachy blush. It's perfect for when I get a bit more tan.
MAC Bone Beige/Emphasize Sculpt and Shape powder:
This was part of the Dsquared collection a few years back. It had been sitting in my make-up collection unloved. I use the contour shade to contour below my cheek bones. I love it! You can get these seperately from the pro-store.
Catrice eye brow pencil in Brow-n eyed peas:
I use this ashy brown colour every day for my eye brows. Sometimes I even smudge it around my lower lash line. This is a great steal! It's cheap and cheerful!
Essence I love Extreme Mascara:
This is my mascara of choice. It gives me big, long and voluminious lashes. It can clump a little, but I don't mind that. Plus, the price is right!
Estee Lauder LE eyeshadow palette:
I love the shades Mocha Cup, Cinnamon, Roseberry Duo (brown) for the lid and Mink to smoke out the look or for the lower lash line. I believe they are all in the permanent line.
