September Favourites! | 2013

Some might say the 9th is too late in the month to do a monthly favourites, but better late than never eh?
That has been my excuse for everything lately I need to stop.
Anyway, so I tried out a few new products during September and I thought they deserved a mention because I have really enjoyed using them.

Firstly I have really liked using the Original Source shower gel in Lime.
This was a last resort buy because I needed a shower gel for Belgium and there were no others which I liked or that were quite cheap. I don't usually like zesty smells in shower products or in general so I tend to avoid lemon, orange and lime scents. I never expected to like this shower gel as much as I did, it's really refreshing so I like using it on a morning to wake me up. I feel like I can now branch out with shower products, I might finally try the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush body wash.

This next one is quite well known and won't be anything new to most people, however it is new for me, it's the Liz Earl Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser.
I was on the search for a new cleanser and I've been wanting to give this one a go for months, and it has definitely met the expectation I had for it. It takes my my makeup off really easily and helps to balance out the oils in my skin. It also isn't too harsh which I really like because sometimes my skin can get a little sensitive.

Next is the Sleek blush in the colour Rose Gold.
This wasn't a recent purchase, in fact it has been sat in my drawer for weeks but I decided I should start using it. It's a really pretty coral colour with a shimmer running through it and I find that I don't need to use a highlighter when I wear it because it has a beautiful shine by itself. It slightly reminds me of the Nars blushes, so this kind of like a cheaper alternative.

This was quite a late favourite in September but I had to include it, it's the Essie nail polish in Wicked.
I absolutely love this nail polish, under different lights it changes from deep red to black, which I particularly like because it isn't as harsh on the nails as a jet black nail polish but it's still quite dark. I think it's a perfect colour for the Autumn/Winter months.

And finally I have been loving the Jane Iredale Crease brush.
I hadn't heard of this brand before, but I went into my local apothecary and they had a small Jane Iredale stand filled with makeup and brushes. I immediately got drawn to the brushes because I am in need of a few and I noticed the crease brush. Its made from natural hair, so its super soft and isn't scratchy at all. I also like the shape of it, it's quite fluffy and has a pointed end, it blends my eyeshadow really well.
