Currently Loving

You can never go wrong with a favourites post! I used always do these monthly back in the day and then stopped for some reason. I love doing these now and again to catch ye up on what I've been using lately and what I've been loving. So here you go, these are my current favourites. 
Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm
Sometimes a lip balm is just a lip balm until you find a great moisturising one. This is definitely the best lip bam out there, well in my opinion anyway. It smells amazing, kind of like Terry's Chocolate Orange. When you first put it on it's quite a dry formula and you mightn't think it's that moisturising but once it sinks in your lips feel so nourished and soft, it's so amazing. This is also great under lipsticks because it has a matte finish so it's very easy to layer products over it. This has definitely helped my lips so much during the cold weather and I will definitely be repurchasing it again, especially when next winter rolls around. 
Lush Shower Gel - Bubbly
A shower gel is quite a weird thing to have in a favourites post, but this just smells so damn good! This was a part of Lush's Christmas collection but I'm sure they still have some left somewhere. They had a body lotion called 'Celebrate' last year that I adored and sadly they discontinued it. This shower gel has the exact same scent as that, which is probably why I love it so much. It is jam packed of sweet orange oil and grape juice so you can guess it smells very citrusy and fresh. Lush shower gels always leave a light scent on your skin and lather up amazingly when you use them with a loofa (they also last ages that way). If you have never used a Lush shower gel why not treat yo'self to one? 
Sanctuary Spa Body Butter - White Lily & Damask Rose
On St. Stephens Day I wen ta bit mad in Boots (if  you follow me on Snapchat you would have seen the damage!) and this body butter came in one of the gift sets I picked up. Before this I had never tried anything from Sanctuary Spa but I have always heard great things about the products. This body butter has a really light fresh scent and isn't the usual old granny rose scent. It is quite a light body  butter which I love because it sinks it quickly while still being really moisturising. I can't wait to try more from the brand and I definitely recommend giving their products a go if you enjoy a good pamper like myself. 
Benefit Porefessional Primer
I have always had little sample tubes of this over the years and have loved it when I have used it but I never wanted to commit to the big price tag. I was so lucky to receive it from my brothers for this past Christmas. I love using this when I want my makeup to last. It creates a layer between my makeup and my skin and it fill is pores and it smooths over breakouts so foundation or concealer won't cling to dry patches or anything like that. A little goes a long way with this as you only need a tiny bit to cover your whole face because of its silicone feel. If you have large pores or blemish prone skin I would highly recommend picking up one of the little sample sizes and trying it out.  
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - 010 Light Porcelain
This has been my go to foundation of the moment. If I'm going out for the night, if I'm doing something during the day, it's just fab for everything. It has a medium buildable coverage which is perfect for me as I want to cover up acne scars and current breakouts. Although it covers loads it still looks like skin because of its dewy finish which is probably what I love most about this foundation. The colour is perfect, it covers what I want it to cover but it lets my skin shine through and doesn't look like a complete mask and it always looks good no matter how my skin is acting that day. 
Umberto Gianni Pick Me Up Moisturising Nutrient Spray
If you haven't noticed I chopped my hair fairly short just before Christmas. I was getting sick and tired of how long it took me to wash, dry and style my hair so I decided to go for the chop. Although some people may think it isn't short at all, it's the shortest I have ever had my hair so it's short to me! I always used oils on my long hair but I felt like they were weighing my shorter hair down so I picked up this leave in conditioner in Boots one day after work. First of all the packaging is divine and it smells amazing and secondly I really love how my hair looks when I use it. It lightly conditions the hair without weighing it down or making it look greasy in any way. After I wash my hair I spray this into towel dried hair and style as usual. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! What have you been loving lately?
