October Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, and this means that today’s post is about the products I loved the most in October. I picked my TOP 3 as well as a few honourable mentions from all the products I’ve reviewed this past month. Let’s start with the TOP 3!

3rd place – Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk
Runner-Up – Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette

Yves Rocher did an amazing job with this cleansing milk. And J Lo’s Glow fragrance is incredibly lovely.

WINNER – Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream

Poundland’s £1 eye cream turned out to be the surprise hit of the month. I’m very happy with it, and I know I’ll buy it again.

Onto the honourable mentions! Jiinju‘s wonderful Avocado Sheet Mask came in 4th (it was close). I enjoyed By Nature‘s Nourishing & Firming Face Mask. And NSPA‘s Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub is the perfect body scrub.

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween! 😈 👻 🦇

Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the facial cleansing products I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk.

This product contains ash tree sap, and it’s aimed at people with dry to very dry skin. It promises to eliminate impurities as well as traces of makeup for perfectly cleansed skin that’s fresh and velvety.

Tihis product is easy to use – just use it like any other cleansing cream. 🙂

Alrighty… I’ve been using this product on and off for just over a month now, and I like it very much!

The cleansing milk dissolves and removes makeup well, and it feels great on my skin.

I love the honey fragrance – it’s simply wonderful!

What else? I think this cleansing milk is perfect for dry to very dry skin. My skin certainly agrees!

I would recommend this product if you want a gentle, yet effective cleansing milk.

Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk is available as 200ml. I paid £2.50 (special offer).
