October Favorites


Clipper Sleep Easy Tea
For those occasional bouts of I-wanna-sleep-but-can’t.
This to me tastes the best out of Twinings Sleep and Pukka Night Time Tea.

Loreal Hair Expertise EverRiche Norshing Shampoo

I think, this might be one of the best shampoos I have tried. In the sense of how it made my hair feel after. It’s a thick lotion like texture, sulphate-free and smells like creamy honey and flowers? So lovely! The entire range seems quite nice and I’ keen on trying out the EverStrong shampoo. EverRiche Norishing conditioner is nice too, with the same fragrance and no-sulphate formula but didn’t stand out to me as much as the shampoo. The mask however, looks like it might be good. Except, it seems to be sold out everywhere!

Boots Feminine Wipes

I go through these so quickly! Love the cute little packaging. Sucks that it is limited edition though, they are always sold out at boots!

Dove Nourishing Body Oil in Pistachio Cream & Magnolia

Oils are a nice addition to a pampering bath/shower time. The only downside is the slippery mess that comes with it… This oil eliminated that. It’s got that slip for a massage but then it doesn’t leave a greasy film on the surface but just a sheen. The pistachio and magnolia fragrance is quite strong but nice. While I didn’t feel like it did a great moisturizing job on it’s own, it’s great as a layer on top of another moisturizer.


The holy-grail of dry skin conditions. It’s non-greasy, soothing, non-perfumed and can be used on face.

Options Instant

They are pretty much always on offer. I love the portioned sachets. Not sure how many flavors they have.. Belgian chocolate and praline hot chocolate..OMG. Heaven.

La Roche Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Light

When Ruth Crilly described this sunscreen in one of her videos, I knew I had to try it. I have been stuck with Neutrogena Ultra sheer sunscreen for too long. Hydraphase UV is amazing, it’s moisturizing enough without being greasy and it glides on so beautifully. The fragrance reminds me of J&J baby talc, which I like actually. It’s got SPF 20 in it, bit under my preferred number but it works for Autumn/winter months in England.

Essie in Allure

I love neutral nail paints. Essie formulations are so beautiful. Allure is a a beautiful sheer-looking white. I know it’s the season to bring out darker, bolder hues, but I am not feeling it just yet. Any suggestions?

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick

Mine is in the shade Frambourjoise. It’s a beautiful pinky-red. What I love most about it is how you can layer the colour. Swipe a teeny bit with your finger for a tint or use the applicator for a full-on gorgeous bright lippy. People have complained it being too dry. But if you use a good base, that shouldn’t be a problem. Absolutely love it! Buy it from Superdrug.

Loreal Age Perfect Toner
This smells and makes me feel fresh. Read the full review here. Absolutely buying this again!
