Autumn Favourites

IMG_0575IMG_0592

I haven’t written a favourite blog post in a while so I thought it was about time to show you what I have been loving over the past couple of months, and throughout Autumn. As you may know I have done a bit of traveling throughout Autumn and decided to switch out most of my skincare products so there are a few new pieces and some trusty old favourite too.

Starting off with skincare and a new product that has worked wonders on my blemishes. Over the last month or two I have been using the Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum and I have really been impressed with the results. I have been having really bad hormonal breakouts on my chin and found I have been left with a lot of scarring. This product has salicylic acid, which helps to unclog your pores in turn reducing your spots. It also gently exfoliates the skin, using the light acid to help reduce the appearance of any blemishes left behind from spots. I use this every morning and night before my moisturiser and I have been loving it.

With the temperatures dropping I have found that I have been using The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 again, as my skin is really lacking hydration at the moment. I started using this product last Winter and was so impressed with how much of a difference it made to my skin. I am now using this product every morning and evening, just to give my skin a boost. If you haven’t tried Hyaluronic acid then you need to, it should be in everyones winter skincare routine, even if you have combination or oily skin. The Hyaluronic acid attracts up to 1,000 times its weight in water and draws moisture deep into your skin, which is where the hydration is needed.

Lip wise I have been using Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Rose exclusively. This lip treatment is just the best out there, I personally think. I love the sheerness of the colour and it keeps my lips hydrated for hours, even after food and drink. From a very subtle lip product to a great concealer, my trusty Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is my go to concealer this autumn. I seem to always be talking about this concealer, but it’s just so good. I have found in the colder months a liquid concealer works so much better, than a cream. I also use this concealer in a shade lighter than my foundation, so it helps to illuminate and brighten my skin at the same time. I love the coverage of this product and it’s lasting power too.

An old mascara favourite of mine is the Mac False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara, which I have in a little travel size. I like to have quite natural looking eyelashes, which have a nice amount of volume and definition. This mascara does all of that without clumping, which is amazing. The brush on this mascara allows you to apply the perfect amount of mascara, without it getting clumpy and difficult to separate the lashes.

Lifestyle Pieces

Some of you may know that it was my birthday in October and one of the pieces of my birthday wish was the Pandora Shimmering Wish Ring, which my husband surprised me with. I have been eyeing up this ring for months and I was over the moon when I opened it up. I love wearing simple pieces of jewellery and love the look of stacked rings, which this ring is perfect for. This ring is a beautiful rose colour with Cubic Zirconia, on the top half. I’m so excited to add this ring to my jewellery collection, which is slowly growing.

I can’t believe today is the last day in November meaning tomorrow is the 1st December and I can go Christmas Crazy. I can finally watch my first Christmas movie this year!
