Monthly Favourites: November

While typing this I'm trying not to think how little time there is left of this year! It feels like the sand in the hourglass is running out quicker and quicker each year, and sometime in the future December is going to be following Easter! Anyway, on to my favourites for the past month!

Sampar Crazy Cream*

I spoke about Sampar's Crazy Cream here. Although it's a bit of a weird product in terms of where in your skincare/makeup routine to use it, I've really been getting into it these past few weeks. It adds a nice glow and a burst of hydration to the skin and makes everything I put on top just look that much better.

Max Factor Creme Puff blush in "Lovely pink"

I was so excited when these were finally available! Unfortunately we only get four of the shades and I picked up two. My favourite is "Lovely pink" which is a light warm pink with a bit of shimmer running through it. The blushes are small and compact and you can throw them in your bag without worrying that they'll suddenly open. The colour also makes me look awake and healthy, which is never a bad thing.

Benefit Roller Lash mascara

I received this sample when I attended the opening of the Benefit counter in Menlyn. The wand is curved and separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. I find that this is also one of the only mascaras that I can use on my bottom lashes, win!

Morgan Taylor nail polish in "Lip service"

I once had this colour painted on my toenails when I went for a pedicure and I fell in love. I finally bought a bottle and it's been on my toenails ever since. It's a gorgeous bubblegum pink, perfect for summer! The formula is also what you would expect from Morgan Taylor polishes: creamy, opaque, and long lasting.

The Body Shop Japanese Camellia Body Butter & Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil

This has to be my favourite combo of the moment: mixing The Body Shop's Japanese Camellia body butter with a few drops of Polynesian Monoi radiance oil before slapping it on my skin. The Japanese Camellia body butter is air light and sinks into the skin beautifully without leaving any sort of tackiness. The smell is absolutely incredible without being overpowering. The Polynesian oil can be used on anything from the face to the hair, and also smells incredible. The two mixed together gives the skin a slight sheen but without stickiness, and smells delicious.

What were your favourites for the month? Let me know in the comment section!

Until next time!
