A few of these products I've had for a while which are rediscovers and others are brand new which i can't get enough of.
Tea Tree is one of my favourite scents. I have pretty much the whole tea tree collection from The Body Shop and every now and again i'll go back to their products, this month it's been the facial wash. A lovely wake up call in the morning. I've been using a day cream from The Body Shop but it's recently ran out so i headed to my samples draw and pulled out this Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme by Estee Lauder. I have noticed such a difference with my complexion, my skin is a lot brighter and i've noticed my under eyes aren't as dark. Obviously i can't say it's solely down to this, but i would be tempted to place a tiny bet on that being the reason. I know this isn't cheap, i know it will be out of a lot of peoples budgets but if you can spare the pennies then it is worth investing in. I picked up Lush's Mask Of Magnaminty towards the start of the month, I've used a lot of their masks over the years but i wanted something new to try which was good all round. This multi-purpose mask is perfect for me as i have relatively good skin, but during a certain time of the month it could do with a helping hand. Made with peppermint oil, honey and vanilla with evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate this mask is a lovely little treat for my skin. You can use this anywhere too, it's not specifically designed for the face. New from Benefit is Majorette, a natural peachy creme blush which can be used as a base for your favourite blush or used on it's own. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with creme blushers, I've tried some absolute belters but then tried others which lasted about an hour, rubbish. This however is up there with the good ones, all hail Benefit once again! I've been using this a lot in October, which i'm sure you can see. It gives me really natural healthy looking cheeks and it's still giving me colour at the end of the day. I have tried this with Coralista but i personally prefer it on it's own. It's quite heavily scented which i know won't be to everyone's taste but it doesn't bother me and it's currently my go to blush first thing in the morning.
I have a couple of lip products for October, up first are these lipsticks from Lidl. I've never actually tried beauty products from Lidl but after receiving a lovely little parcel i decided to give them a go. They're quite pigmented, but not as true as the colour in the picture but that suits me better. They give a lovely shine with hint of gold. At only £1.99 these are a right bargain. I'd be really interested in trying more products from Lidl! The other lip product i've been using is Max Factor Lipfinity, this product has been brillaint for the days where I've been suffering with dry lips as the balm keeps them moistured but locks the colour in too. I recently used this on a night out and it was brilliant, i hardly had to touch it up! This one is in shade 335 but there are 25 to choose from.
