May Favourites

This month I have been lucky enough to have got my mitts on some really lovely products. My skin is glowing, I’ve had more relaxing baths, face masks and tried more products than ever before. I’ve had my first experience of beauty boxes, and have really loved discovering new brands like Souk Souk, the Green People and Bodhi, to name a few! 
Here is a round up of some of my favourite products used in May….
May Favourites 


1. Nourish Balance Nutritious Peptide Serum* – £16.95 – this gorgeous serum includes antioxidant vitamins C & E to protect from collagen damage, vitamin B3 to stimulate nutrient flow to skin cells and vitamin B5 to moisturise and keep skin soft and healthy. I love the fresh apple scent and after a month of use my skin is so soft. 
2. Green People Gentle Cleanse & Make-up Remover* – £10.95 – this is my very favourite make-up remover and cleanser of all time. 91% organic and smells gorgeous, a little like Turkish delight I think. I struggle to find a good cleanser as my skin can be quite sensitive, and I also wear quite a bit of eyeliner and mascara which is a pain to remove with sensitive cleansers. This works a treat, it’s gentle, soft and takes all my make-up off in one go. Will be sticking with this product from now. 
3. Bodhi Neroli Lucé Revitalising Face Oil* – £12.00 – I was initially quite worried about adding oil to my face, we spend so much time trying to reduce oily skin and I was scared it would cause my skin to break out. However, I loved this product, it’s so thick but absorbs so quickly into the skin, not leaving a greasy residue at all. The scent is a gorgeous Mediterranean Orange Blossom, my skin was left feeling soft, toned and deeply moisturised. I use this once a week for an extra moisture boost in my routine.

4. ESPA Refining Skin Polish* – £13.00 (15ml) – I was lucky enough to be treated to a £30 voucher for ESPA at the Brighton Blogger meet and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this skin brightening polish. It’s not like any facial scrubs I’ve used before, the polish has a moisturiser like texture with a micro-fine scrub to lift pores, lift impurities and stimulate cell renewal. It has a lovely floral scent and is a real treat to use as it feels so luxurious.
5. ESPA Hydrating Floral Spafresh* – £13.50 (60ml) – I love this fresh, hydrating toner. This is perfect for an early morning when my skin is dull and tired. It’s so ideal to refresh and rejuvenate before applying my make-up. 

6. Washi! Skin Polishing Kit* – £5.95 – Another beauty picked up at the Brighton Blogger Meet that I’ve fallen in love with. We were all treated to a pack of pure Cotton Hot Cloths and and one Washi! Skin Polishing towel in cute Japanese packaging (I’m a sucker for anything Japanese!) I use the Hot Cloths daily, these great cloths retain the heat which is ideal for deep cleansing of the skin. The polishing towel is great on both wet or dry skin to buff away dead cells. The great thing about this product is that all the cloths can be washed in the washing machine. I just chuck mine in with the whites and they come out like new again. Highly recommend.

7. Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter* – £13.00 – I’m sure everyone reading this will have experienced Body Shop body butters so I won’t say too much about this one, other than it’s such a gorgeous sweet, scent. I love anything zesty and lemony. Perfect!

And just to add a couple of other favourite products in not in the ‘beauty’ category. I have been loving Yankee Candles, especially these smaller size beauties as I’ve been able to try so many different scents. They are available in Asda now for just 99p, which is a bargain.
If you read my post about Teapigs iced tea’s I have been experimenting with different flavours of teas and have fallen in love with Teapigs, they have such cute packaging and a great quality product. Their silky tea temples aren’t your standard cup of tea. I also love the fact they are fully biodegradable and support causes like the Rainforest Alliance and saving the planet.

Right, so that has been my favourite products for the month! I also want to add that I am aware this post is full of PR samples/gifts, however everything said here is my honest opinion and are all products I would buy myself and have been a joy to use.
