FEBRUARY FAVOURITES // BEAUTY


So sorry its taken a while for me to post this, I caught some nasty food poisoning last week and also had to move house and drive hundreds of miles whilst suffering with it! Something which I would definitely not recommend doing, who knew that vegans could still get food poisoning?!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Gel Cleanser
I originally bought the gel cleanser in a set which included the cleanser, toner and moisturiser (which is also shown here). I can honestly say I have had amazing results from using the La Roche-Posay Effaclar range, as it keeps my acne prone skin at bay from nasty blemishes and I think this is mainly down to the gel cleanser and moisturiser, even though the toner is still great! The gel cleanser lathers up like a dream and removes my make up quickly and throroughly, and afterwards leaves your face with that really clean, fresh feeling, without your face feeling stripped of natural oils.  It really has made a huge difference in the apperance of spots and blackheads, leaving my skin in a really great condition as I have massive acne troubles!

This can be purchased with the gel cleanser and I have been loving using this moisturiser for the past few months. I'm usually reluctant to trying new moisturisers and I'm always scared they're going to cause spots and leave me with makeup sliding down my face after a few hours. However this moisturiser is perfect at not just moisturising, but also as a primer. A few minutes after drying, it leaves your face feeling beautifully matte and ready for your foundation, and also doesn't contain any nasty parabens.

If I'm having a really bad skin day, I will also add this little treat into my skincare regime to give my skin that extra kick at reducing redness and those little nasty devils. This stuff is pretty strong, and after a few applications you can see a world of difference in size and redness in spots. A great one for travelling and keeping in your emergency makeup kit if you're away and have an important event!

Now I know this is an old favourite with a lot of girls out there but seriously, this has to be my most favourite beauty product in my makeup bag so far. The highlight is a beautiful shade- without being glittery which is always my main conern with highlighters, and doesn't fall down your face after a few hours! The highlighter is a stick on one end, and also has a sponge on the other end which can be used for blending. This highlighter also looks great if you have a tan (fake or real!).

Let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations for beauty products you've been loving recently! 

Love,
