A Few September Favourites



Over the last couple of months I haven’t really tried out any new product and just used my trusty products I know and love. As September brings cooler weather I switched up a lot of my beauty products and decided to give a few of my new purchases a go. So my September favourites is a mixture of new finds and a few products I have been using for year.

Starting off with skincare and two new products I have given a go and really enjoyed. The first products is the Ren Clarimatte T-Zone Controlling Cleansing Gel. I started using this as I have been having a lot of breakout on my chin and thought this would be a good products to try out. I have only been using this cleaner for a couple of weeks but so far I have been loving it. I find gel cleansers are great for oily skin as they help get rid of any dirt in your pores and reduce your natural excess oils. I have been using this product morning and evening and have notices that my breakouts are reducing, which is brilliant.

A new brand I have discovered is Lumene, a Finnish beauty brand who use amazing  nordic ingredients and artic spring water in all of their products. I picked up the Lumene Hydrating Eye Gel, a light-weight gel made from Artic Spring Water and Nordic Birch sap to provide instant and long lasting hydration. Since using this products I have noticed the darkness under my eyes has nearly disappeared, which is incredible. My eye area also feels more hydrated and looks brighter. I am really impressed with this brand and can’t wait to try out more of their products.


I am always on the hunt for new lip balms to try and when my Glossier Balm Dotcom ran out it was the perfect opportunity to give the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment a go. I have to say this products really lived up to my expectation, I love using the Fresh Advance Therapy Lip Treatment at night and then the rose tinted lip treatment during the day. This lip treatment hydrates my lips for hours and  I love that the Rose tint means I can get away with not having to put a lipstick on top. This product now lives in my handbag as I just can’t live with out it.

The Rimmel Sculpting Palette in Coral Glow is an old favourite of mine, which I have started reaching for again now that the weather has cooled down. I really like wearing a bit of bronzer in the autumn, to keep that Summer glow going. I love this bronzer as it’s the perfect matt bronzer with a cool undertone, so I don’t look orange. I love that this product is finely milled so you don’t look powdery when it’s applied. I also love the blush in this palette, the perfect subtle rosey blush colour.

My last favourite is the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense, which is a perfume I have loved for years. I tend to wear different perfumes, depending on what I fancy wearing on the day. This is the perfect everyday perfume that I just never get bored of and isn’t an overpowering scent.

What were your favourites from September?
