Monthly Favourites | February

Hi guys, so it's that time of the month again when I get to share with you all the products I have been loving this month. And this is what I got...

So as you can probably see it's much smaller than my last favourites post (here).
To start with I have just one skincare thing, or two it depends I'll say one because they are basically the same, but yes it is the Superdrug Face Masks. They have 31 different face masks, well 25 sachet/packet ones and 5 tube ones. I have used these masks for such a long time now and all them different. The masks include, Peel Off, Calms,Purifying, Exfoliating, Invigorating, and more. I love these not only as they are a bargain 99p(!) and also smell beautiful, but for the price they genuinely work and leave my skin feeling soft, looking much healthier and of course it does depend on which packet or tube you buy, on what they will do for you skin, but every one that I have tried...I loved! Check them out if you haven't already.

L-R Mac Angel & Mac Rebel and Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner Eastend Snob

Moving onto Make-up now, and there isn't a lot (as you can see) but I've been pretty boring this month and just stuck to minimal make-up. I've had Mac Angel for a real long time, and it's a bit of a re-discovery really as I did go off it for a while because I thought the colour didn't particularly suit me, also sometimes the 'Frost' texture didn't feel very inviting on the lips so it stayed in my draw. However, since I discovered the Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner, shown in my 'Breaking the Bank' haul, together these are the perfect couple. They match really well as they are similar shades of pink, and i've just been wearing this combination a lot during the month. Again in this months favourites I'm still loving Mac Rebel, it's just so edgy and I like to wear this mainly in the night time. I really love the intensity of the purple and the finish.

Hands next. I suffer with pretty dry hands because of my job and cleaning products arer very irritating for the skin on my fingers, which leaves them pretty itchy and sore (horrible I know) I have got hand cream from the doctors but can only using twice a day, morning and night, so I try to keep them moisturised during the day. These are the trick! The Soap and Glory Hand Food is the main cream I use in the day it is a little love hate relationship as I don't like the smell but I love the end result. It sets into the skin quickly so I can get on with things with out slipping out of my hands or my hands being to soggy, and it just completely clears up my dry areas leaving them soft. The next one is Avon Silicone Glove Hand Cream (see local Avon representative for book) this protects your hands from house hold detergents, which I only use before I clean things especially at work, the products we use are the most irritating for my skin, and this just calms it right down so I don't leave work with red, inflamed, 'angry' hands. Again it soaks quickly in to the skin so can get straight on with cleaning.

Lastly is two fragrances. As you may have guessed I am very fond of the Kate Moss perfume..a lot. But I have re-purchased and re-purchased this spray so many times, and I have a full one I received for christmas still waiting to be used. But I just feel really feminine when I wear it, and my boyfriend likes it as it 'helps him to fall asleep' haha. I also really like the bottle it just looks pretty sitting up there on my shelf smelling amazing.
Next perfume is the Marc Jacobs 'Dot' also a gift from my other half this valentines day post here. Like the Kate Moss one I also feel pretty and feminine and girly when I sprits this,  the packaging is just awesome and really stands out on my little shelf I have going on. This smell is just a winner and I don't want to run out.

  5. I had the Kate Moss perfume at one point, you're right that it's pretty feminine. Although I have to say Chloe is my scent. I'm currently on my 6th bottle which says it all, it smells slightly powdery, a bit like shake n vac? Haha, but it a nice way of course. xo
