Monthly Favourites | May


I haven't got many favourites this month as I've been busy with exams and revision so I haven't had the opportunity to try out any new products. However, I thought I would still share with you the few products that I have enjoyed using.

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Soothing Lotion with Calming Honey for Sensitive Skin LINK
I am one of the worst and most unreliable people when it comes to moisturising my arms and legs regularly and my legs especially can be very sensitive. During the month of May, I have been making myself use this again and regularly to get some moisture back into my skin and it leaves my arms and legs very soft and smooth without causing any sensitivity.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara LINK
This month, ELLE magazine were giving away free mini samples of Benefit's They're Real! Mascara. This is a very popular and raved about product by beauty lovers and I have wanted to try it out for a while but I couldn't justify spending £19.50 on a mascara that I might not like. I can now definitely see how this is of holy grail standard and will definitely be repurchasing the full size when I can. It lengthens, separates and adds some volume to your lashes whilst keeping it looking natural because of the name 'They're Real!'

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat LINK
This is a mini bottle that I received in a Nails Inc gift set at Christmas and haven't really given it much of a trial until recently. I have been using this throughout the end of April and the month of May and I have been a lot more impressed with it than I thought I would be! This has kept my nail polish in place for the last month or so with only minor and recent chipping. I'm not sure whether it is better than the OPI top coat and I'm waiting to give Seche Vite a try when I can get my hands on it. However I have still enjoyed using this.

Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner LINK
I finished my bigger bottle of this a while ago but never seemed to remember to pick up a new one. My TIGI conditioner is starting to run out and it is a little pricey for me to repurchase at the moment so I thought I would purchase a small bottle of this for the time being and switch it between my deep conditioners and the remainder of my TIGI conditioner. I have been using this for the majority of May more than the others I own and I have no idea why I left it so long to purchase it and have definitely rediscovered my love for this product. If you have dry or damaged hair then I definitely advise you to give this a try!

Essie Nail Polish - Fiji LINK
Another cult and raved about beauty product is Essie's nail polish in 'Fiji'. I think every nail polish/beauty lover owns this and I have only heard good reviews about it! I finally decided to pick it up at the end of April as Topshop didn't have the polish which I was looking for and it gave me the opportunity to give this a go. I can definitely see why this is such a popular product and it is one of the perfect polishes for the end of Spring and all of Summer. This has lovely pigmentation and a lovely formula to it which allows the colour to be built up or sheered out as much as you would like.

Thank you for reading.
