May Beauty Favourites 2016

beauty, favourites, makeup, skincare

These favourites posts come around far too fast, Summer has finally arrived [well, apparently...], let's hope it's a good one! 
It was difficult deciding between all my favourites from May, I had so many great products I wanted to share with you, but after much deliberation I've managed to round it down to the usual 5.
So, here are the 5 beauty products I've been enjoying using this past month...

olay, beauty, skincare, night cream

Olay Anti Wrinkle Pro Vital Night Cream (£9.99/Boots)
I seem to have taken an interest in skincare aimed at more mature skin lately. Now, I do have fine lines, so I do like to use anti ageing products, but I've found the more mature skincare to make my skin feel absolutely amazing, possibly due to it working that little bit harder to combat dryness and help my skin feel more plumper and firmer. I look forward to using this at the end of every day, which makes it a big favourite! It feels so so good on my skin and smells lush!

beauty, fragrance, summer, body spray

Avon Brazil Beat Body Mist (£2.00)
As I've mentioned before, I much prefer to use body sprays in the warmer weather, rather than a heavy perfume. This dragon fruit, white musk and water lily scent from Avon is just THE perfect Summer fragrance! It's the perfect mixture of fruity and sweet, a tropical island in a bottle! It doesn't have amazing longevity but a body spray never really does, it's easy to keep spritzing throughout the day though as it's a pleasure to sniff!! ;)

beauty, whitening toothpaste, nuskin

NuSkin AP24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste* (£10.00)
I've tried whitening toothpastes before but always end up going back to normal toothpastes as I'm always worried about the amount of peroxide or similar in them, and how they're not protecting my teeth as well as others, but this contains fluoride so claims to fight cavities and protect teeth as good as any other toothpaste, plus it doesn't contain peroxide. It has a pleasant minty vanilla scent and is a pleasure to use. Both myself and James have been using it for the past 2 of weeks and seeing a few shades difference already! 

beauty, makeup, benefit, eye makeup

Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Contour Kit (£25.50)
I've been using this almost every day lately. It contains Boi-ing concealer for those dark circles, although I tend not to use this as prefer my usual concealer, plus 3 gorgeous shades to create the perfect contoured eyes. It also contains an illustrated booklet with tips and advice on how to use the kit best. Great little kit!

beauty, skincare, makeup remover, micellar water

Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water (£5.99/Boots)
Micellar water has been my choice of make up remover since it came onto the scene and I was intrigued to try out the new oil-infused version when it was released. I've always been wary of using oils on my face, but I've since learn how beneficial it is so when my previous micellar water ran out, I grabbed the oil infused water and absolutely loved it. Firstly, it smells ah-mazing!! And it feels so so good on my skin. I love taking off my make up with it at the end of the day!

What beauty products have you been loving lately?

  1. I really do need to invest in (and actually use) a night cream! I have bought them over the years but always tend to just pass out in a coma by bed time and forget to use them (in fact my pillow has been my make up remover for years now tut tut!) This looks a great recommendation.

  2. Great ideas, dont use any of these brands but will look into them more x

  3. The Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water sound so clever x

  4. I like the idea of the often worry my facewash makes my skin so dry! Also I'm after a good anti-ager after hitting 30. Will check some of these out! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst xx

  5. I've been loving the Garnier Micellar Water too!

    xo, Liz

  6. What a lovely set of products I love the sound of the oil infused cleaning water.

  7. That benefit palette is one of my all time favourites but I havent used it recently so I am glad you have reminded me to!

  8. I've been on the look out for tooth whitener recently, as my teeth have always had a bit of a yellow tint which I've recently become more aware of and anxious about. Would you recommend the tooth paste as a healthier alternative for cosmetic tooth whitening?


  9. I have been hearing great things about the Micellar Water. I am determined to start taking better care of myself.

  10. I am loving my La Roche Pose face creams

  11. I can't believe I haven't tried Benefit's Big Beautiful Eyes yet, it sounds perfect for me

  12. Ooh thanks for the tip about the toothpaste, will invest in that one I think. Can I ask what you use instead of Boing? I've been using that for under eye circles but find it really heavy sometimes. x x

  13. Thanks for sharing these - my great aunt swore by Olay products. She looked amazing at 95 so that was enough to sell it to me. Thanks for linking to #sharewithme - hope to see you again

  14. I love benefit and like the sound of that palette and I'm intrigued by the oil infused misceller water which I already love (the original one)

  15. Ooh I like the idea of wearing a body mist in the summer too

  16. I really need a cream to sort the lines forming around my eyes...any recommendations?! Frightened I'm starting to look my age! Argh, we can't have that! :( #FriYAYLinky

  17. Ooh I am definitely going to try the oil infused micellar water, I love mine but don't feel it does much for the hydration of my skin, this may perk it up a bit! I've just started as an Avon rep so I can't wait to try lots of their goodies! Thanks for linking up #friyaylinky xx

  18. These all sound brilliant - I really do need to invest in some beauty products other than the ones I already have. Thanks for linking up to #justanotherlinky xx

  19. Only just catching up on posts!!! I just got this toothpaste and have been using it for nearly two weeks, not sure on results yet though! I also have the Garner regular micellar water but this one sounds even better!!


Thanks for reading!
