October, well that was over quicker than you can say NARS. Speaking of NARS, the new Steven Klien collection is utterly incredible if I do say so myself. Anyhow, I do somewhat digress as I am here to discuss with you my October beauty favourites.
Liz Earle has been a staple within my skincare routine now for pretty much the entire time that I have being blogging. I think I initially purchased this around six months into my blog journey and ever since I have found myself not looking back. The brand on a whole is great, the products work and they for me always smell incredible. For sake of repeating myself over and over I will not harp on about the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish too much, suffice to say that it is once again leaving my skin feeling great. The Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator however is a new product to me and for a while had been one that I wished to try. Naturally we had a counter open up at the new John Lewis here in Birmingham so I popped along and came away with this; I mean a purchase of something was inevitable.
It is safe to say that whilst I don’t think this particular is product is ground breaking, I do think that it provides a lovely mid-week exfoliation to my skin which it most certainly needs in the midst of autumn. For me what is key here is that this is very gentle on my skin, this is a must. Whilst I am not opposed to physical exfoliation I do tend to veer towards more chemical options these days, however it has been nice to mix things up a little.
This product hardly needs an introduction in my opinion as it is safe to say that I have seen this floating around a lot lately. Essentially this is The Comforter Bubble Bar scent only in shower gel form; if you are a fan of the bubble bar then I’d hazard a guess that you will like this. I will be honest in that it isn’t the best in terms of lathering up, however for someone who is a huge fan of the bubble bar and hasn’t had a bath (we moved house back in March and now have just a shower) then it’s safe to say that I am more than happy to have something almost identical back in my life.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – Deauville (because hardly anybody ever states their shade these days)
Again I feel as though this product needs no introduction as it is without doubt one of the most discussed foundations that I have witnessed in the three years I have being writing this blog. I was quite late to the party with this one however it’s better to be late then to never turn up at all right? This truly is a great foundation for me as it provides a pretty much flawless base every time; the only niggle I have with it was that I had to buy a pump for £3 afterwards, oh and the lid now no longer fits.
Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish in Soul Session
It is incredibly ironic that as I sit here now writing about this nail polish that I have, in the space of ten minutes chewed all my nails off. Call it stress, call it frustration, call it what you will; all I know is that I now have no nails and find myself feeling foolish writing this particular paragraph. Despite this sad tale I can tell you that this nail polish has been worn constantly this month. It is a gorgeous nude which has a tinge of mauve to it making it incredibly flattering on the nails. Shade aside the formula of this range from Rimmel is also pretty great, it’s certainly one to check out if you haven’t already.
