So…. Its November? October has flown by! I love this time of year, it’s the start of the festivities and all the shops are getting festive, I love it. October, November and December are the BEST months of the year in my opinion. Anyway here are some things I’ve been loving in October.
I am obsessed with candles I have so many that I have made a candle cupboard in my room but that doesn’t stop me buying more. I have been loving autumnal style candles such as my Salted Caramel Candle , Frankincense and Myrrh Candle which is £2.50 from Sainsbury’s so cheap and looks so pretty (you will need to go into store to pick one up) and my Snickerdoodle Candle which is very strong scented.
Cleansing,Toning & Lips
My Nan got me a load of Caudalie Minis when she went to France and the gentle cleansing milk was my favourite product out of them all and I had to purchase the full-sized product. It is as the name says a very gentle cleansing milk, it makes my skin feel very moisturised and radiant.
The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a real princess product, it isn’t a necessity in your skin care routine but it is a lovely luxurious product, I bought this from Space NK when I purchased the cleansing milk. I love Caudlie products they are worth every penny. I use the Elixir before and after my makeup and just to brighten my skin when needed.
I have also been loving the Zoella Vanilla Lip Balm. I have been using this lip balm at work and I’ve been loving it. Especially with the change in seasons my lips are needing a bit more TLC than usual so this lip balm is perfect.
I have never used a Garnier moisturiser until this one, I’m not entirely sure why but I am always drawn to the more high-end brands for skin care and never give the high-street brands a chance. This was on offer in boots in September and I thought I would give it a ago, I find this is more of day cream than night as it is very light, it’s a gel consistency it slightly resembles the Clinque moisture surge gel cream which is a lot more pricey.
I wish we had Bath and Body Works in England 😦 the products are so lovely and I can’t wait to grab some more when I go to the states next month. This body cream is so soft and creamy and doesn’t leave me feeling all sticky. It smells so nice.
I have been loving this foundation, I have wanted to try it for a while now but I have never been able to find a Space NK which stocks it so I can choose a shade. I actually found this in TK MAX for £10 such a bargain. I love looking at the makeup in TK MAX you can find really good things in there if you have a rummage. This foundation is very flawless and dewy, it has SPF 20 which is always a good thing (unless your taking photos with the flash).
I have heard a lot about this mascara so I thought I would try it out, I didn’t like it at first but once it dried out slightly I really liked it, it is very lengthening.
Powder & Bronzer
I got the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder at the beginning of September and I have honestly used it everyday since I got it. I spoke about both these products in detail on my Autumn Makeup Essentials blog post so head over there for more info!
Note Books & Writing
This is quite a random favourite but very similar to my candle obsession I have a note-book obsession I have so many. I got these 3 in Cornwall a couple of weekends ago. I love writing to do lists and planning things on paper instead of on technology sometimes.
Do you have any October Favourites?
