November Favourites 2013

Another month = another monthly favourites post... (a little bit late)

  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 103 True Ivory
    This foundation is probably my second favourite (after Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum of course), and I recently bought it again and have been loving it for every day.  I haven't actually done a review on this foundation so I might just have to!
  • Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant*
    I was contacted by the lovely people behind the website beauty900.co.uk, who asked if I would like to try some Dermalogica skincare samples from their website.  This is the only product I've tried so far and I've been absolutely loving it.  Once I've had a good try of all of the items I received I will do a full review.
    The Daily Microfoliant comes in a powder form, which, when mixed with water turns into a white paste.  I've been using this on an evening after my cleansing routine and I've truly noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin.  The product aims to unclog pores, gets rid of surface skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion.  I usually shy away from harsh exfoliators, as my skin is so sensitive - but this is perfect.  It exfoliates without feeling like it is scrubbing your skin.  I might even splash out on the full size!!
  • Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer (dry/sensitive)
    I've been using this every day, and it's been doing a good job at providing a nice smooth base for my makeup.  I won't say anything else as I wrote a full review (here).
  • GOSH Cosmetics Eyebrow Kit
    I won't say too much on this product either as I wrote a review (here), except that I have used this every single day since I bought it, haha!
  • Maxfactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 14 Soft Pink
    Ohhh I just LOVEE this blush!!  I do love a good cream blush, and I've been using my beloved Bourjois Cream Blush for a good few months, but I thought I'd give this a go as I'd heard lots of good things.  I honestly think I prefer it to the Bourjois one.  It's a bit more of a sticky consistency, but I find it works much better in achieving a dewy look.  Winner!
  • Maybelline Baby Lips in Mint Fresh
    I got this in the Glamour Beauty Edit box (which I wrote about here).  Obviously I only received this at the end of November, but I have been using it every day since, so wanted to include it.  It's a really lovely lip balm, with a menthol-style freshness that just feels and tastes gorge! mmm ha!

I'd love to know what your November favourites were...
