Oh hello May.
Such a lovely name for a beautiful time of year.
Yes it’s starting to get a bit chilly and fresh, but there’s still some lovely sunny days to make it enjoyable.
My lips and skin do start to struggle a little with the cool change, combined with indoor heating – so I’ve found some star products to keep lips and skin hydrated.
This month I’ve found a brilliant brow product, plus some luscious moisturising lip balms to keep lips smooth and soft, along with the ultimate Sodashi mask for breakouts, a pop of pink for your nails and a night cream for stressed and fatigued skin.
Benefit Gimme Brow: I have been looking for a brow product that’s quick and easy to use, which will tame my brows and fill them in ever so slightly – and this is the best product I’ve found so far. It’s a slightly coloured brush on fibre gel that gives brows shape with no flaking or rubbing off, plus it takes two seconds flat to apply.
Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm: These are a godsend for lips! I’ve been using Carmex since I was little when family friends would bring it back from the States. These lip balms are the perfect size for slipping in your pocket for touch ups whenever lips feel a bit dry, and they come in clear, sheer peach and sheer pink. I don’t leave home without at least one of them and use them on my girls lips.
Avon Anew Vitale Night Cream: I’m up for anything that helps reduce signs of stress and fatigue! This is a really lovely gel cream that absorbs very quickly into the skin and made my skin feel brighter and fresher the next day.
Sodashi Gentle Repair Clay Mask: This mask is the ultimate for breakouts. This gives my skin a big boost of zinc, reduces redness, refine pores and my skin is noticeably calmer and clearer afterwards. If you are experiencing problem skin – particularly if you are pregnant – you need this mask! No nasty chemicals mean you can use it as much as you want without worrying if it is adversely affecting your precious baby.
Bloom Nail Polish in Ingrid: I do love a pop of pink, and this is a gorgeous colour to help get through the cold Winter months. Bloom have over 80 nail polish shades to choose from, such a great way to add a fun splash of colour to your day!
Happy beauty shopping lovelies!!
