November Favorites

Hello my lovelies,

So I cannot believe that November is almost over, Christmas is in full swing in my household. The darker nights and the colder weather and the leaves still falling – I love it. November has been an extremely tricky month for me and I have had to overcome a lot I am hoping December is a lot better for me. I have realised a lot this month especially that I have the worlds greatest friends and family around me and I couldn’t do this without them. November was the month I started this blog it was very scary but it has been so rewarding!

Anyway enough of me babbling on, I could go on forever! This month I have really enjoyed quite a few products and I thought I would share them with you.

  1. Lush, Snow Fairy Shower Gel – £7.95 Buy it here

I LOVE this shower gel. I am not a fan of baths – I’m sorry this may cause a bit of hate but it’s shower all the way for me. I have had this for around 3 years now every time it has come out and I cannot get enough. It smells absolutely wonderful, it is a extremely sweet scent so it may not be for everyone but it is definitely for me. It’s pink and glittery – what is not to love!

I always look forward to this time of year when it is back on sale I hate that it is limited addition. However, due to the price I think I am happy to have this as a treat in winter. I am normally the girl that buys whatever shower gel is on offer. This is a beautiful product and I cannot recommend lush products as a whole any higher.

2. Liz Earle, Deep Cleansing Mask – £15.75 Buy it here

At this time of year especially, I love to treat my skin. My skin is normally ok but there is nothing better than a pamper evening and putting a face mask on to relax. This is the perfect one for it – as you know I love Liz Earle products and this one does not disappoint. This face mask is for oily and combination skin as I do suffer from an oily t-zone from time to time so this is perfect. This is a clay mask that helps to draw out all of the impurities from the skin.

After I use this my skin feels so soft and clean and it has gone straight to the top of my list as my go to face mask. I’m going to be sad when this runs out and I will be heading to the shops as soon as this runs out!

3. Jo Malone, Wood Sage and Sea Salt – £43 Buy it here

My most recent post was on my Top 3 perfumes and this unfortunately did not make the list but I love this especially at this time of year. This is a beautiful aromatic perfume which I have been enjoying recently it is quite strong smelling and it lasts the whole day however this is more of a special scent for me so I wear this mainly for special occasions. I have quite a few scents from Jo Malone and they all add something different to my collection. Anyone that hasn’t tried a Jo Malone fragrance I would highly recommend going into a store the experience is amazing and the staff are so helpful at choosing the right scent for you.

4. Collection Mattifying Pore Minimiser – £4.99 Buy it here

I recently picked this primer up from the stand in Boots, I had heard so many good things about this product and it didn’t disappoint. I love finding such good products at good prices and this really it one of them. It is a transparent silicone based primer which contains Witch Hazel which aids with clearing the skin – what could be better! It blends so easily into the skins and keeps my makeup on all day. It is a mattifying primer so if you prefer a dewey look this may not be for you I suppose it can’t please everyone!

5. MAC Mineralise Skin finish in Soft and Gentle – £24 Buy it here

Who doesn’t love highlighter? I cannot live without highlighter especially not this one. I recently rediscovered this highlighter in my collection and I’m so glad I did. This is really quite a standout highlighter and it isn’t for the fainthearted. This is a perfect Christmas party go to product. Who doesn’t like glitter and shimmer at this time of year! It really is beautiful and the pigmentation is amazing!

6. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Mirage – £25 Buy it here

First off the packaging is beautiful. It is so elegant and simple like all Chanel products and I could not be happier. It is a beautiful shimmery brown with flecks of gold – my sort of colour let me tell you for eyeshadow. I have never had a product like this before which is a cream to powder finish and it just glides on my eye. It is extremely pigmented and lasts all day long. I normally use this just on its own as I don’t think it needs anything else. I cannot wait to buy more of these, they are absolutely wonderful!

7. MAC Matte Bronzing Power – Limited Eddition

Unfortunately this is limited edition and I brought it last year but I am sure MAC do something similar in the core collection.  I always have to use bronzer at this time of year I do not want a flat face and I  still want to look like I have a bit of colour to me. This is perfect for it, it has slight flecks of shimmer but nothing major and glides onto the skin creating a matte finish. I love a bronzer and this really is a perfect staple for my collection.

8. Vineyard Candles – Prosecco £19.50 Buy it here

I love prosecco so when I saw this I thought it was perfect! Who doesn’t love the smell of prosecco in candle form. This candle fills the room even when it is not alight and burns beautifully. For some reason I never have much luck with burning candles they never seem to burn evenly – somehow I have managed to do this! I love a good candle and although this is not a wintery scent it makes my room smell lovely and it fills me with happiness. It is on the sweeter side but anyone would know this if they have smelt prosecco. I haven’t heard much about this company but they really are wonderful!

  1. So many nice favourites! I’m like you with Snow Fairy, it’s kind of like a treat at this time of year but Christmas wouldn’t feel the same without it. I think I’ll pick up the Collection primer, it sounds like something my forehead needs haha!

  2. The snow fairy is a beautiful scent I had it last year. Hopefully on my next trip to lush they will still have some left. Wow I’ve never seen a prosecco candle before. Great post Alice, I loved reading it 😁 xxx
