October Favourites!

Hello people! Sometimes i struggle with monthly favourites, in fact most months i find that i have too many products that i like or that nothing seems to have wowed me enough to call a favourite.
This month it was easy to pick 7 must have products for me as each one is pretty amazing, so here we go:

October Favourite Picks!

 Skincare saviours!

 My skin has been really playing me up lately. I had purchased the no7 hot cloth cleanser after reading a lot of reviews from other blogs. Lots of people comparing it to Liz Earle but for me it seriously did not work. It left me spotty and dull. (Not a good look)

Luckily this trio of products has helped create a huge turnaround in a very short space of time in using them :)

Savar Essential Cleansing Lotion: This cleanser is packed full of natural ingredients including New Zealand calendula extract and sweet orange extract. It smells amazing very fresh, slightly citrusy and feels rich and creamy on application.
You remove it with a hot damp cloth and it leaves skin fresh and really soft. I have noticed an immediate effect on my skin from using this its brilliant. It removes mascara as well so its perfect for me as I'm not keen on using a separate eye makeup remover. It is priced at £24 and available directly from the website 

Korres Pomegranate Tonic Lotion: I have not been using this for very long but it has again had a great effect on my skin. I'm a fan of products that contain salicylic acid as this one does, it really helps minimise my breakouts. The toner smells beautiful, slightly fruity but a nice natural gentle smell and it leaves my pores looking smaller and my skin brighter. This is a new product and i can see it becoming a best seller. Priced at  £14 for 200ml it is a bargain

Yes to Tomatoes Facial Hydrating Lotion: Again another natural based product which is aimed at oily/combination skins. What surprised me most about this moisturiser is the fact it feels quite rich when you first apply it. (Most creams for oily skins are very light) but it absorbs really well and leaves my skin quite matte. It contains Organic Tomatoes,Watermelon, Camomile and Dead Sea minerals. I find it very soothing and gentle on my skin. Priced at £12.35

Make up Staples!

Sleek Brow Kit: I was sent this kit for review purposes and i have used it everyday since. It's such a cute kit that has everything in it to keep brows tidy and groomed, the shade light which i have is perfect for filling in gaps without looking overly made up and the tweezers and tiny brush means you have everything to hand. 
Its also a steal at just £7.99 available online or from Superdrug

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage: As i said before i had been suffering with breakouts last month and a lot of late nights. This has been a godsend. I often use other concealers but this one i go back to time and time again. Brilliant for multipurpose concealing. Luckily my skin is a lot better now but I'm still using this under the eyes for covering dark circles and although its pricey it lasts amazingly well RRP £26

Avon SuperShock Mascara Black: An everyday no fail blackest of black liners that nothing else can touch in terms of depth and value for money. When you need a new liner I'd seriously think of giving this a go it's just fab. I know Avon don't always have it but check out ebay if you want to get your mitts on it

Body Treats!

Haus Of Gloi Pumpkin Butter: What can i say, the smell of this is just stunning. Described as cream glowing pumpkin, rich vanilla bean and the tiniest touch of nutmeg. Personally I'd describe it as a yummy delicious almost edible delight which i have been slathering on like mad when i want a treat.

So that's my October Favourites. If you would like to leave a link to yours below then feel free :) Have you tried any of the above products?


  1. I absolutely LOVE hHouse of Gloi pumpkin butter! I agree with you, smells yummy! xxx

  2. I love yes to tomatoes facial hydrating lotion. It made my beauty essentials list. Just gorgeous.

  3. Awh, what a shame the no 7 cleanser didn't work for you. I was not very excited about using it (and only purchased it because I had a No 7 voucher and my other hot cloth cleansers (liz earle and soap and glory) were running out)but so far, nothing bad to report and it seems to work really well with the rest of my current skin regime. I guess, everybodys skin is different and what works for some will not work for others.

  4. Yay! Pumpkin Eater! That's my absolute fave HoG scent EVER! I ordered the full-size and 2 minis.

  5. I really love products by Korres and Say Yes to Tomatoes (as well as the cucumber line). Really loved this recap of your favorites!
