Beauty Favourites

May Favourites.

&. The Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask: I purchased this recently with a £5 off discount voucher from Boots and I’ve been using it a lot ever since. I love self heating masks and scrubs, and this really relaxes the pores for deep cleansing. It’s really good for oily skin prone to blemishes as it absorbs excess oil and also softens the skin.

&. Soap & Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel: I usually don’t spend much on shower gel but this is quite a big bottle and it smells incredible! The signature S&G scent, if you’re wondering, which I love. It doesn’t linger but my bathroom smells of it all the time and it’s lovely to wake up to in the morning.

&. Laura Mercier Fresh Fig Hand Creme: I posted about this recently here and I’ve been using it every day since I got it. A lovely, lovely scent which I can’t get enough of.

&. Caviar Anti-Aging Hair Spray: This sample was sent in this months Glossybox and although I was slightly wary of putting caviar on my hair, this smells absolutely incredible (I’m really into scents this month!) and makes my hair feel and look lovely. I’d love to purchase more from this range, maybe when I’m a squillionairess.

&. NARS Powder Blusher in Orgasm: Full post here. I had to mention this as it’s still one of my favourite blushes. I know some people have said it doesn’t live up to the hype (well, it is a massive hype to live up to!) but I really think it does and it looks beautiful, blends incredibly and makes me skin look so smooth and flushed.

&. Simple Eye Makeup Remover Wipes. I’m one of those people who are completely against face wipes (awful things) but when it comes to the eye area and fussing around with cotton wool pads and makeup remover, I’d rather just have something I can grab and use then. These are great for taking off eye makeup (obviously) without being greasy or oily. I sometimes worry about getting too much oil near my skin as it screams breakout to me. I recommend!

&. Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser: I recently repurchased this as it’s lovely and really helps my skin. I use it every day (sometimes twice a day) and it removes every trace of makeup and generally just feeds my skin. This is another one of those products that has been massively hyped up, but definitely hits the nail on the head if you ask me.

  • I loved the anti-aging spray from the glossy box too! Definitely going to get the full version 🙂

  • That the sanctuary mask is so so so lovely, one of my all time favs. I don’t bother putting it on my cheeks as they never get oily, lasts loads longer if you just put it on the t-zone.x

  • I didn’t know you could buy eye makeup remover pads (where have I been?!) – will be getting some of these!

  • Oh, I love self heating face masks! They’re really weird in a good way haha.

    Hot cloth cleanser is AMAZING. I don’t care if people say it’s overhyped or whatever, it’s just brill xx

  • That hairspray is my new favourite product – I will be repurchasing! I spend stupid amounts of money on my hair though – I think more than I do on makeup!

  • Have to say I’m loving the caviar hair spray – didn’t think I would but you’re right the scent is gorge x

  • Wahhh I have the Orgasm Multiple and don’t really get on with it 🙁 really want the blush though even though I have loads of blush. Not as much as you though so I guess it’s acceptable?! Run out of C&P ages ago so crying my makeup off instead x

  • I have been meaning to get the S&G shower gel for ages as I LOVE the scent.
    I usually hate shower gel, but I have a feeling I will love it!
    On my list, now!
    xx, Essie!

  • Ooh I’m 2/3 of the way through my bottle of Clean on Me, I love it too! I have a massive stockpile of shower gels to get through after it’s finished so won’t be allowing myself a repurchase for a good while but one day I certainly will!

  • I love the S&G shower gel, just finished my bottle I got for Christmas! I’ve used it everyday as well! Luckily I have a second bottle ready! haha:)xxx

  • I’ve heard such good things about the Sanctuary face mask, think I’ll have to buy it! Same with hot cloth cleanser, although I may buy the No7 first to see how it goes, especially considering Boots are doing the £5 off vouchers again! xx

  • I keep hearing things about different Soap & Glory products, I will have to find a place that sells it near me and check it out!
    Great favorites!

  • Never heard of the The Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask until now, sounds great for my oily skin will def. have to try it out :}


  • Val

    Love Orgasm too, it totally lives up to the hype in my opinion! I have to remember to give my other blushes time, haha xo

  • Ahh, again – I’m so jealous you got the GlossyBox, the products seem amazing! Also want to try Orgasm, can’t believe I don’t have this blush yet, it seems like a must have 🙂
