February 2017 Favourites

Hello everyone! I can't quite believe we are now in March, the year is going so quickly- which can only mean one thing, it's February favourites time!

My favourites this month have primarily been skincare based, but this is solely down to the fact I really want to get my skin to the best it can be, and I'm making a conscious effort to do so. A couple of days ago I spoke about my love for the Origins Clear Improvements Mask (you can read that here), and I've also previously written about the Out of Trouble Mask (read more here). I honestly believe that these two masks are the reason my skin is improving so much. I alternate my uses depending on what I need to target at the specific moment, and I can honestly say that these two masks make me want to try and potentially switch to an all Origins based skincare routine. 

The L'oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Wash was a discovery I had no idea about at the start of the month, however I can't recommend it enough. This product was introduced to my Mum and I from a friend and between the two of us we can't get enough. I wouldn't say I prefer it to my La Roche Posay cleanser down to the fact that the Effaclar Cleanser really helps heal and 'cleanse' my skin, where as I prefer this on days where I am having a pamper, as it feels a little more luxurious and calmer towards my skin.

I have a feeling I've already mentioned the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye cream at some point during 2017, and I can assure you all I will continue to do so. I am obsessed with this eye cream, it is so soothing and gentle towards the eyes and I feel like it really is benefitting and looking after my skin that is surrounding my eye.  I was lucky enough to get a small travel sample for Christmas, and even though it is pricey, somehow I think I will need to purchase the full size when it runs out, due to how wonderful it is.

I picked up Rimmel's Brow This Way Gel with Argon Oil completely on a whim when Rimmel was on offer in Boots, and I haven't looked back since. Generally, I will use a clear mascara from Collection or Nyx (basically something fairly cheap) to keep my brows in place as that is essentially all it is. This product has simply become my holy grail, when I use this I can see that my brows don't budge at all throughout the day, and the Argon Oil is really helping my brows to grow.

MAC's lipstick in Violetta has been on my wish list since the moment I first started to wonder into MAC and fall in love. I finally plucked up the courage to purchase this colour this month. I know what you're thinking- its just a lipstick. I'm still not 100% sure if purples suit my skin tone, but nonetheless, I adore this colour and will find a way to wear it one way or another!

And finally is the Jo Malone fragrance in Blue Agava and Cacao. This scent is so unique and muted yet equally as long lasting and intense it is beautiful. Cacao is one of the stronger notes, and whilst lots of people may not appeal to smelling similar to chocolate, combined with the Agava I find it slightly masculine, and I really love it. It is nothing like anything else I own, and that is another reason why I love it. Unfortunately it is now discontinues, but I do have a post that is solely dedicated to the perfume which you can read here.

What have been your favourites this February?
