Anyone know how September is almost over? It literally came and went in the blink of an eye, and I have to admit I’m pretty bummed that October is just around the corner.
October brings the start of a new term at uni, which in turn brings a lot of work – something I’m not really feeling right now. It also brings freezing weather, and as a self-proclaimed summer baby I’m strongly against that. The only good thing is that we’re one month closer to Christmas!
This month I’ve really been into face masks, something about the cold weather has just made me want to have a lot of pamper sessions. I’ve actually been into skincare in general – when the weather changes my skin really freaks out, so tackling that situation has led me to a few new amazing products!
Here’s what I’ve been loving throughout the month of September.
I’ve used this mask a couple of times in the past and I always thought it was amazing, but I’ve been using this religiously for the past couple of weeks and I can’t get enough – this is a cult favourite for a reason.
Not only is it super fun to use (it’s silver and it’s a peel-off, what more could you want?), it also delivers some seriously awesome results. This tightens my pores, reduces my smile lines and just generally makes my skin look a lot firmer – I can’t get enough. If you want to try this out but don’t want to splurge £42 on a mask, grab the travel size for only £16!
WOW YOU! Z’EST LA VIE MASK
Cold weather always makes my skin so dry and dull, so a radiance-boosting exfoliating mask is much appreciated. I love this because it makes my skin soft and bright but doesn’t irritate my skin the way most exfoliating masks do.
This also smells incredible, and uses all natural ingredients so you know it’s good. It contains tons of product too, so I don’t have to worry about finishing it after only 3 uses.
YES TO TOMATOES 2-IN-1 SCRUB & CLEANSER STICK
For some reason my skin has gone totally crazy this month and become super dry but also had a ton of breakouts – this product basically fixed both problems in one foul swoop.
It contains charcoal which helps to detoxify the skin, and the scrub element gets rid of all of my dry patches, leaving my skin feeling baby soft. I only use this a couple of times a week because I don’t want to irritate my skin, but so far I’ve had no problems!
MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD INVISIBLE COVER STICK FOUNDATION
I haven’t used this foundation in a while, but I recently picked this back up and instantly remembered why I loved it so much. Although this is a stick foundation, it’s not too thick or heavy so it doesn’t look cakey on the skin. It’s also super creamy and has a soft, dewy finish – making this perfect for us dry-skinned folk.
This shade is actually too light for me so I definitely need to pick up a darker one, but I’m loving mixing this with my BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation for the glowiest, most beautiful skin ever.
SLEEK BLUSH IN ‘ANTIQUE’
I love changing up my blush when the weather gets cooler, and this is the perfect blush for autumn. It’s a dusty rose-mauve that looks absolutely stunning on the cheeks, and I love that it has a little shimmer for an extra bit of glow.
This has some serious pigment to it, so you definitely want to be gentle with how you apply it!
CODE BEAUTIFUL SOFT SMOOTH LIP LINER
A rosy-nude is always my favourite shade to wear, and this lip liner has been my go-to for the past month. It’s really smooth and not drying at all, despite the matte finish. I love smudging this to create a soft, rosy pout that lasts all day.
My favourite thing about this lip liner is that it sharpens itself, I love anything that makes my life just a little bit easier.
So those were my favourites this month, let me know in the comments what you’ve been loving throughout September! See you next time,
