It’s December and I’m in full on carol-playing, gluten-free-mince-pie-eating, Baileys-drinking, festive-jumper-wearing, annoyingly-chirpy Christmas mode. But before I get too excited about the coming festivities, let’s take a look back at my November monthly favourites 2015. There are some old favourites, a few new bits and pieces and some book recommendations (as always), don’t forget to tell me your faves from the month too!
Another month comes to an end and another favourites blog post compiled. I love writing these as I really enjoy looking back over the month and thinking about what I’ve used and why. It’s a nice little snapshot of my month. This one is mostly beauty with the usual Kindle recommendations as well. So let’s go!
My Wedding Make Up and Skincare
I’ve just posted a video of my beauty favourites for the run up to the wedding and also the make up I used on my wedding day,
I hope you like it!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I mentioned in my Dermalex review post that I have recently rehauled my skincare regime and have seen great results. Dermalex really helped with controlling my rosacea flare ups and redness but this product is what has helped with everything else.
When I researched Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair before buying it, everybody raved about it’s magical properties but they also made sure that I was under no illusions that it was a instant miracle product. I don’t trust skin care products that promise an instant change – a true, positive change to your skin care regime takes time and patience.
I have been using this serum for about a month and the changes were so subtle that I didn’t even notice them happening.
All of a sudden I realised that my skin was better than it’s ever been: the tone is more even, the dry patches on my cheeks are gone, my skin looks more luminous, smoother and plumped up. If I sound like I’m raving…I am. This stuff is my new ‘can’t live without’ product. As you can see from the pictures, I even got a mini version from eBay so that I can still have it with me on holiday! This product is an investment – by which I mean it’s fairly expensive. It’s £70 for 50ml from Boots. But I only use half a pipette per day so it will last me ages. Plus, from what it does to my face, I don’t begrudge paying it!
