September Favourites

September Favourites
So long, farewell to yet another month honestly I could have sworn I was only writing my August Favourites last week. So as we say goodbye to another month we are finally saying farewell to summer and hello to autumn. I love the weather change it excites me as I can finally start digging out my knits and stock up on LUSH bath products. I decided to conclude September with a favourites post on all the bits and pieces I have been enjoying recently and why.

LUSH Big Sea Salt Shampoo - My hair desperately needs cut so to prevent paying £30+ for a trim I decided to pick up a volume shampoo from LUSH in the hope it will give my hair some temp-life (until payday). I surprisingly love this shampoo I mean, the salt grains did freak me out a bit but once rubbed into your scalp it's quite relaxing. This leaves my hair smelling amazing and really helps restore some life to my hair without having to blow-dry upside down for volume. I actually really like this shampoo so I will definitely be checking LUSH's hair care range out more in the future!

L'Oreal Infallible Foundation - I mentioned in my Drugstore Makeup Tryouts post (here) that I was starting to not see the benefits of Double Wear foundation so I opted for a cheaper alternative. I've never tried L'Oreal foundation before and since purchasing it I have been wearing this on my face almost every day since, it is amazing. This gives you a medium coverage with a light finish that doesn't melt off throughout the day. I love how light and healthy this feels on my skin, it has really made me think twice about splurging on high-end foundations as often.

Gold Makeup Brushes - I discovered these Zoeva dupe type brushes here on Aliexpress and decided to try them out. I never thought I would like them as much as I did but they are amazing! I find my eyeshadows blend in so nicely and there are so many brushes to play around with. I have been using some for highlight, powder all sorts! They are so inexpensive as well I think its £2.50 for like 12 or something.

St Tropez Instant Tan - I think I got this in a magazine one time and only now have I started to really get into it. I have been applying this tan all over my body for that instant tanned look. It is very blendable, natural and builds up so nicely, I am never left with any streaks, orange patches and when it washes off in the shower it all washes off nicely. I really like this tan and I can definitely see me purchasing the large version.

Nivea Micellar Water - Every time I look up micellar waters this one is always recommended, I have tried pretty much most of the drugstore brands apart from this one so I decided to give it a try. This takes my makeup off so much better than other brands I have tried, it definitely gets the job done quicker. I do find I go through this bottle a lot faster than the likes of Garnier but, it does leave my skin super hydrated and clean. I really like this product it doesn't dry my skin out and gets the job done fast.

Other Random Bits - Other things I've been loving this month includes chokers I am really digging that 90s vibe at the moment. I think they are so trendy and really help bring together a simple outfit. I've also been enjoying a documentary on Netflix called 72 Most Dangerous Animals in Australia, I've really been getting into that and discovering stories behind each animal.


What have you been loving this month??

  1. It's nice to hear the Zoeva dupes are as great as the original, I tend to be iffy to these no-name brushes, but sometimes they can surprise you ;)

  6. Everyone seems to be loving the Big Shampoo right now. I guess I´ll have to check it out on my next trip to Lush. My hair is so soft (which is amazing, obviously) but that also means it has basically no volume at all.
