Monthly Favourites: November

When I started rummaging through my things trying to think of what I used the most these past few weeks, I honestly didn't think I'd come up with six products! November was a busy month and without thinking I seem to have kept on reaching for the same products.

Toni & Guy Prep Smoothing Detangler

I bought this as part of a Toni & Guy gift set at Clicks. R199 got me a stunning makeup bag, smoothing detangler, as well as shampoo and conditioner (the shampoo and conditioner normally retails for R99 each). I'm not normally someone who uses detangling sprays or lotions, because I comb the knots out of my hair in the shower while I still have conditioner on. This smoothing detangler comes in a pump bottle and one pump dispenses a tiny amount of product. The product itself is of a liquidy consistency and it smells divine. I rub two small pumps into towel dry hair before combing it out and drying my hair. My hair is left soft and tangle free, hooray!

Korres Fig Showergel

Firstly, I absolutely love the packaging of this shower gel. Secondly, the smell. It smells exactly like fig jam, and although I'm not a fan of fig jam, I love this shower gel. I bought it on Look Fantastic when they had a promotion on a two-pack of these shower gels (so another one in the cupboard for me, score!), but you can buy Korres at selected Edgars stores.

Nivea In-shower Body Moisturiser for dry skin

I've only ever used the white bottle (for normal skins), but I thought that seeing as it's summer, the more moisture I can get the better. I can't really fault this product: it's cheap, it's effective, and it smells like Iced Zoo cookies. What's not to love?

Pureology Essential Repair Conditioner

I've been using the purple Pureology for a few months now and I absolutely love it. When my conditioner ran out, I decided to pick up a bottle along with a Retail Box Secret Box. As luck would have it, this Essential Repair conditioner was on special for R150. It's a thick and creamy conditioner and it makes my hair super soft and shiny. I love the amazing coconut scent that lingers in my hair throughout the day, but I'm not sure if coconut is actually one of the ingredients. 

Maybelline BabyLips in Electro

I have about five of the BabyLips variants, and this one is definitely part of the favourites group. The orange-tinted lip balm goes on creamy and smooth and tints my lips with only the lightest hint of orange. It smells like orange cooldrink and at the price of around R24.95 you can't go wrong.

Garnier BB Cream Eyes

This is the most recent purchase of the list and one I'm quite chuffed with. It normally retails for R69.95 at Clicks, so when they had it on offer for R54.95 I saw it as a sign! I'm a big fan of the Garnier BB cream (especially the Pure Active one), so I was keen to try this out. I'm always looking for an easy way to cover up the dark circles under my eyes and this product does not disappoint. The metal rollerball cools the skin while the little ball glides smoothly across the skin without tugging at it. A single swipe underneath each eye delivers the right amount of product to buff into the skin. It nicely covers my dark circles and the tube is small enough to pop into my handbag.

Have you ever used any of these products? Let me know in the comments section!

Until next time!
