November Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post. 🙂 I’ve chosen my 3 favourite products from all the products I’ve reviewed this month, and there are a few honourable mentions as well!

3rd place – PS… Shine Bright Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask

Primark did a great job with this effective and fun bubble sheet mask. I enjoyed it very much!

Runner-Up – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24H Moisturising Shower Cream & Nourishing Body Butter

I love the Sanctuary Spa Kyphi body care products. It’s so sad that these gems were discontinued.

WINNER – Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil

This facial oil is one of the best skin care products I’ve ever tried. I love it!

Onto the honourable mentions! Montagne Jeunesse’s Purple Acai Peel Off Face Mask is excellent. Boots’ Garden Collection toiletries are wonderful, and Imperial Leather’s Mango & Papaya Shower Cream smells like summer in a bottle!

Which products have you been loving lately? Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading! 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Flutter Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream. It’s been a while since I bought this hand cream, but the Flutter brand always makes an appearance around Christmas and Valentine’s Day, and this year’s Christmas collection looks pretty much like last year’s! 😉 Now… onto the review!

I think this is a lovely hand cream. Whilst it’s more of a summer hand cream than a winter hand cream, I do enjoy the light formula because it’s absorbed almost instantly. This hand cream makes my hands feel super soft, and the subtle floral fragrance is very nice! I’d describe the fragrance as yellow and happy. 🙂

Superdrug‘s Flutter Hand Cream is available as 60ml for £1. In addition, this hand cream is suitable for vegans, and it’s certifed cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). I think Superdrug’s Flutter hand cream would make a great stocking filler!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Cucumber & Lime Crush Peel Off Face Mask.

This face mask promises to lift off dead skin cells and impurities, and to revive skin.

It works like any other peel-off mask: Apply it to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, and simply peel it off (then wash your face).

How’s the mask? I think this is an average face mask. Montagne Jeunesse has done a number of much better peel-off masks, so I don’t know why they keep pushing this one (this is a repackaged version of their cucumber peel-off mask).

In addition, this mask smells strongly of alcohol. It’s best to hold your breath when you apply this mask to your nose!

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this face mask. Like I said, there are quite a few great Montagne Jeunesse peel-off masks, but this isn’t one of them.

Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush is available as 10ml for 90p at Primark. This face mask is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry, Models Own Goose & Stamping With Pueen 84

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I stamped using Pueen‘s 84 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and the amazing Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize which is one of the best non-stamping polishes that stamp well.

Whilst I didn’t love this mani, I did like it. I think it looked cute and bright.

Boots Garden Collection – Rose Body Wash & Body Lotion, Lavender Body Wash & Body Lotion, Magnolia Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about BootsGarden Collection toiletries. Once a year, these products are available as a set of 5 travel-sized products (3x 100ml shower gel, 2x 75ml body lotion). The designs are different every year, but the products are always the same. Onto the reviews!

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Wash is very nice. It lathers up well, it cleanses my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The fresh rose fragrance is very well done.

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion is a light body moisturiser. It’s not sticky at all, and it’s absorbed in no time, so it would be perfect for the warmer seasons and for workday mornings (or whenever you’re in a hurry). The fragrance is fresh and rosey.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash is just as great as the rose body wash. The aromatic lavender fragrance is very authentic.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion is just as wonderful as the rose body lotion. It provides light hydration, and the lavender scent is simply lovely.

Boots Garden Collection Magnolia Body Wash has blown me away. The formula of the shower gel is great, and the fragrance is… floral, sunny, transparent… with a touch of honey. Gorgeous!

Boots did a great job with these Garden Collection toiletries. I paid £2.50 per set which is a total steal!

Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry

Hi there! Today’s post is about Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry.

This face wash contains salicylic acid, vitamin c, and grapefruit and cranberry extracts.

It promises to remove dirt, oil and impurities with ease, and to prevent spots and imperfections from forming.

The product is easy to use – just use it as you’d use any other face wash. 🙂

I’ve been using this product on and off for a few weeks now, and I’m happy with it.

This face wash is gentle on the skin, but it’s actually quite powerful. I can feel that it cleanses my skin properly without making it feel stripped. It even removes make-up with ease! This is truly great!

Whilst I don’t think that this face wash has any visible brightening effect, I’m happy with its overall performance and I would recommend it.

Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry is available as 150ml for £3.
