This month was a good month for trying new products and here is my picks for the month:
|Middle - Lush R & B Hair Moisturiser|
Clockwise from the top - Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal, Lacura Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Gel,
L'oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint, Lola Marc Jacobs.
Claire and I got given a sample of this when we attended a Lush Event a good few months back. I fell in love with the scent immediately as soon as I opened it. Once I finished my sample I bought a full size straight away. This stuff is great at taming fly aways and a little goes a very long way. You only need a dab of this other wise it is really easy to end up with greasy looking hair. You can also use this on wet hair too for blow drying to 'lock in the oils'.
Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal
I got this in a beauty box a while back and this stuff is great! Really lightweight and moisturising and doesn't leave my skin feeling oily. This lotion also contains Hyaluronic Acid - which I am obsessed with at the moment! Not sure if I would buy this again though just because it's not the easiest to get hold of.
Lacura Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Gel
This has been a favourite of mine for a couple of months now. This is really cheap from Aldi and only comes in every now and again. If you see it don't buy just one of them, buy two. Otherwise you'll regret it once you fall in love. It's more purse friendly than the Indeed Labs Hyaluron and it only around £5. Hyaluronic Acid is the latest IT product at the moment in terms of moisturisation and anti-ageing and for good reason - It really is a wonder ingredient! I'm rationing mine out at the moment because I don't want to run out as I haven't seen it in my local Aldi for a while. The serum itself sinks in really nicely and very quickly. My mam has also been using this too and her skin is looking visibly younger and smoother.
When I first tried this I thought it was a bit weird. At first test it seemed to be like a oily water type liquid which wasn't getting me very excited at all. I haven't tried or seen a product anything like this - like the advert says it really is lighter than water! After giving it a good shake I applied a drop to my finger following the directions on the back of the bottle and applied it to my face using only my fingers. I was really surprised to see that it dried semi matte and blended really nicely. It's a very very light coverage but creates a lovely sheer wash of colour which does well in evening out the skin.
Lola Marc Jacobs
This is my first fragrance from Marc Jacobs and I absolutely love it! I'm rubbish at describing fragrances so I'm not going to bother. Have a sniff in boots next time you're in!
|Mid-week dinner - Avocado, Grass Fed Feta Cheese, Spinach Salad with a homemade mayonnaise dressing. |
Paleo Scotch Egg and homemade caramelised red onions.
|Paleo weekend breakfast - Fried Egg, Kohlrabi 'hash' and liver and bacon.|
Next month I'm looking forward to...
- Getting closer to putting the Xmas tree up!
- Finishing off my Xmas shopping so I can relax for the rest of the month.
