November Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post. This post is a bit awkward because the top 3 products are all from Superdrug! Well, the reason is that I’ve simply tried lots of Superdrug products recently. But I’ll definitely do a few Boots products reviews next month, I promise! But let’s get to the favourites now!

3rd place – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Intensive All Over Body Cream

Whilst I prefer body creams that are a little less rich, I still think Superdrug’s Vitamin E Intensive All Over Body Cream is really good. It smells extremely nice (you’d think it’s a high-end product!) and it’s very nourishing. I’ll be using it a lot this winter!

Runner-Up – Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum

I’ve been using Superdrug’s Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum for a few months now – and I think it’s great. It’s made quite a difference to my skin, and I’ve already repurchased it.

WINNER – Superdrug Dehydrated Facial Konjac Sponge

I loooooove my konjac sponge. I never want to be without a konjac sponge again. If you’ve never used a konjac sponge, you really need to change that! Thank you Stashy and Kathy for making me curious about konjac sponges!

Now on to the honourable mentions! I really like Superdrug’s Vitamin E Eye Cream and Superdrug’s Flutter Lip Balm. And I’m impressed with Burt’s Bees Calla Lily Tinted Lip Balm.

This is it for this month! Feel free to let me know what you think of my favourites. Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try any of them? And which products did you enjoy this month? Get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Friday 18 Nov – Superdrug Clearly Youthful Resurfacing Night Serum

Superdrug’s Night Serum isn’t perfect – but it’s a decent product that does what it’s supposed to do. I’m glad I bought it – and I already bought a back-up bottle. If you want to read the full review, click here.

Burt’s Bees Calla Lily Tinted Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about my new Burt’s Bees Calla Lily Tinted Lip Balm which I found at my local Poundland a few days ago. As they only had one shade, I only picked up one lip balm. But that’s not really a bad thing because I have too many lip balms and glosses anyway. 🙂

So whilst I’m drowning in lip balms (well, almost), I couldn’t resist the urge to try this product right away. And now let me tell you if it’s any good.

First of all, I was surprised by the colour of the lip balm. I thought calla lilies were white(ish)? But nevermind, I’d rather use a red-tinted lip balm than a white(ish)-tinted one.

And how’s the lip balm? I think it’s very nice. The formula is lovely, the lip balm just glides on – but it doesn’t feel sticky. Great! I also like the subtle and natural colour which doesn’t settle in the fine lines of my lips. So yes, I’d recommend this lip balm, and I’ll go back to Poundland to stock up (if they have any lip balms left…). 🙂
