Monthly Favourites | May 2013



Am I seriously writing a monthly favourites post already?! It never ceases to amaze me how quickly this post comes around! 

This Nip+Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter is actually from April's Glossybox but it's taken me until nearly the end of May to appreciate it fully. It smells beautiful and really does leave your skin smooth and noticeably moisturised, I need to get my hands on a full size version of this before it's all gone! I've had my eye on MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel for ages now and all it took was a 10% Debenhams discount to nudge me in the right direction. I only use this on my cheeks as it's quite pink in colour but it leaves such a lovely rosey sheen and the glow lasts all day. I haven't used another tanning product since I bought Palmer's Natural Bronze Body Lotion (full review here) for saying it's a gradual  tanner it acts fast and I usually only need one layer to make me look a level of sun kissed that I'm really happy with. The only thing that gets me down about this product is that if your elbows are even the slightest bit dry it sticks to them and no amount of scrubbing is removing that baby! Exfoliate, exfoliate, efoliate unless you want to rock the 'I've leant in mud look'! If there was such a thing I would be a strong contender for the messiest nail varnish application in the world. Ever. award so this Barry M Nail Paint Corrector Pen (full review here) is a god send for me. It's the perfect shape to get in all the tricky bits and is just such a handy little thing if you need to do a bit of tidying up. This Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream is something else that I got in a Glossbox but because it's a kind of mousse and a leave in product I was slightly hesitant to give it a go in case it left my hair all sticky. Well, it doesn't!! I love this stuff, it's so easy to use, just comb it through your hair and leave it, that's it, no stickiness just super soft manageable hair that smells AMAZING! I think you could count on the fingers of one hand the days that I haven't worn Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer (full review here) this month. I cannot rave about this enough, just go out and get one right now! We had a couple of days of sunshine this month and as soon as the sun starts shining my nails need to be bright, Hedonist needed a break so I got this Models Own Ice Neon nail varnish in Bubblegum, it applies really well and is meant to be matte but I find after a day or so wear it does start to have a shine to it. A perfect bright summer shade that should be getting more wear than it has but the sun is in hiding, boohoo!
