May favourites


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.

Skincare:


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.

Make-up:


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.


What did you love in May?

  1. The Estee Lauder eyeshadows are so pretty, they look perfect for daytime wear :) I'm really curious to try the Advanced Night Repair, I've seen it raved about on so many blogs. I use Healthy Mix Serum and really like it, I wonder what the difference between it and the original Healthy Mix are :)

    1. The advanced night repair is such a hit all over the beauty world. Try to get a sample and see if you like it. That's how I started too.

      I have both Healthy Mix foundations and I like the regular one more. It seems to give a bit more coverage. I will get around reviewing them eventually.

    1. Is it even possible to love a product more each day? That's what's happening with bioderma. Kinda silly, but it's true!

      Estee Lauder has some amazing quality shadows and nice deals sometimes. Definitely check them out.

    1. You should try it. But maybe smell it first to make sure it's not too strong. Some people really hate the scent.
