September Favourites

Wednesday, 30 September 2015

September favourites, Essence, yankee candles, the body shop, sierra bees

Another month has gone by and I didn't even notice! I have to say that September came and went the fastest out of the last few months, probably because it the last month of summer and I was trying to make the most out of it. Now let's get on with my favourites.

Essence maximum definition volume mascara // I picked up this mascara a few weeks ago and I have been wearing it nearly every day since. Although it states that it's a volume mascara I feel like it is more of a lengthening one. The brush design is new to me as I had never tried a plastic one. The bristles are really close together and coat even the smallest lashes while they don't clump them together. I was wearing this mascara in a recent post and as you can see it looks lovely and natural.

The Body Shop blueberry body scrub-gelee // I found this scrub during a late August sale with a 40% off deal and I couldn't leave it there! Upon the first impression I was not as pleased with the scent but I have grown to love it. The scrub is a jelly like texture with seeds and small granules that help to exfoliate the skin. It was a special edition product so I don't think that it is available anymore although you may still find it in some shops.

Yankee Candle honey glow // If you didn't know already, I am a crazy candle lady especially during Autumn as I think that you can find the best scents during this time. This candle has a sweet scent which creates a warm and cozy atmosphere. I used this candle in my Autumn post and many of you seemed interested in it and I definitely recommend checking it out! You can check out my candle collection, although it has obviously grown since.

The Body Shop tea tree oil // My my skin is quite sensitive and very prone to breakouts. It starts to act up even with a slight change in weather and after only a few days of neglecting my skin care routine. Tea tree oil has been my savior lately. I apply this with a cotton pad to my my breakouts and it has been helping a lot with keeping the pimples at bay. (I may or may not have smashed it right after taking the photo. Fortunately I had a an empty bottle laying around and I was able to save some of the oil)

Sierra Bees pomegranate lipbalm // Lately my lips have been feeling a little dry and this lipbalm is the only one I have been using. It really nourishes the lips and I love the scent.

Have you tried any of these products?

Thanks for stopping by :)

  15. I really love Yankee candles too. I mean seriously they are just heaven for your nose :-)

    The other day I was in a card shop and they were selling them, I spent at least 5 mins smelling all the candles and was getting very funny looks from the sales assistant. I think she thought I had an addiction... maybe I do? Haha

  16. I love these kinds of posts =) I have actually tried the Blueberry body butter from the body shop, it smells yummy, I was tempted by the scrub at the time but didn't go for it. =( and I love yankee candles, don't think they have honey glow in my local one, but it sounds amazing!

  28. I have also tried out the lip balm and I love it! It makes my lips feel so smooth! Now that I've read your post I would also really want to try the tea tree oil for my skin because my skin is also quite sensitive and faces similar problems to what you described your skin goes through during the weather change! <3 Laura
