May Favourites | 2016

May is over and June is now in full swing, I love reading and seeing what people have been loving each month and I've used again (as per usual) many a product in May, it's very difficult to cherry pick the 'best ones' as I've used so many different things, and been impressed with SO many.....so here are my May favourites.

First up is my Nuxe Lip Balm, I get incredibly dry and scaly lips quite often and I hate it, however I purchased this little gem well over 3 weeks ago now &, I've honestly never been impressed this much with a lip balm before in my entire life. I apply this last thing at night, & by the time I wake up IT'S STILL THERE!!! It's really nourishing and just glides on like a butter, the smell I love to as it's like a club biscuit, works wonders and smells divine too.

I tend to fall in and out of love with fragrances so I'm always on the look out for a new one, so whilst on a recent trip to boots I came across this very cute looking perfume bottle & it's Estee Lauder's Modern Muse Le Rouge Perfume, I was pretty much sold by the packaging in the first place as it's so adorable, a little spritz later & I was sold even more! It's a very sweet, summery and uplifting scent, I've used this non-stop It's one of them perfumes that everyone will fall in love with, it's just so summery & just smells like spring & summer.

Lipstick wise Charlotte Tilbury 'Nude Kate' has been my favourite. Now this shade is SO completely & utterly gorgeous. I'm again yet to be disappointed by a Tilbury product it's formula is very creamy, luxurious & the best thing it's non drying to my lips, it's just my dream lipstick all in one. The colour is this gorgeous neutral shade with a little dash of a peachy pink it's just stunning, I'm loving a classic nude lip at the moment & this one has been my most grabbed throughout May it's just a simple classic, I have to say Charlotte Tilbury Lippies are probably my most favourite highend lipstick formula. Seriously they are so good and cased in side rose gold packaging, what more could I wish for.

The Sanctuary Air Whipped Creme Souffle has been my favourite body moisturiser, as you can see it's completely gone, smells divine. It feels completely nourishing to my skin it's just an all round great body souffle. It's really light and doesn't feel greasy, the only thing I'm not to sure I like is as it's air whipped I kind of got through it quite quickly. which don't get me wrong is awesome because it means I loved it, but I feel like It would be better if it was a little bit less air whipped as I felt I had to use more (if that makes sense).

Sticking with Sanctuary another moisturising product I've also been loving is the cooling body sorbet, now this along with the shower gel is just my dream summer scent, it's extremely fresh and just smells like summer in a bottle, now this sorbet contains waterlilly, aloe vera & cucumber water, it's very hydrating to the skin and the best thing is  this sorbet lotion instantly cools you down, it has a cooling affect when applied to your skin, so you longer feel like a sweaty mess, and as the weather here in the UK at the moment is seriosuly hot this is my on the go moisturiser, and it actually does work at cooling you down! Seriously try this it will change your sun life.

Pixi Glow Tonic Water, is something I've heard SO many good things about so I bought one towards the middle of may and have been loving it non stop, it's really brightened my skin and makes my skin feel that much fresher, The Pixi Glow Tonic is a very gentle toner, it's oil-free & alcohol free too. It's enriched with goodness as it's filled with aloe vera & witch-hazel which is really good for oily skin, it also tones & firms your skin it's just my favourite toner, it's not too pricey and the appearance of my skin looks so much better. I have combination skin and this has really helped with the oilyness of my skin, the best thing about this is that it's designed for ALL SKIN TYPES!!! (can I get a whoop whoop!?!?!?) It's super affordable too coming in at £18.

And that my internet chums is everything I've loved throughout May, let me know what you've been loving recently.
