May Beauty Favourites

May Beauty Favourites


Hi everyone,

Here I come with my May beauty favourites post, my first one since I opened the blog. I hope you’ve had a great month and that all is well! I’m currently doing an internship at a company, as part of my degree, so my days all feel pretty much the same. Spending hours in front of the computer gives me headache and make me feel tired. I feel like I’m constantly sleepy and at the same time I feel guilty, because I’m not even studying for my exams (but I’ll go back to university in October), which is usually a lot more stressful.

I’m also getting ready to take an English exam at the end of June, so my nights at home are equally divided into reading blogs/exercising/studying English. I hate to admit it but this month has not been that different from the last one or the one before that! However, one highlight was running a 5km race in my hometown. Also, my boyfriend visited me at the beginning of May, every moment with him is a highlight.

Blogging is also giving me great satisfaction and I’m extremely proud of what I’ve done so far. I’ve only been blogging for a month! I thank you with all my heart for taking the time to read my posts.

Without further ado, these are the products that I’ve used the most in May:

A lovely scented body lotion. I love that it is a “green” product with lots of good ingredients. Unlike most other body lotions this one doesn’t have any parabens or silicones. The scent is difficult to describe, I’d say it is a light scent that is hard not to like, though it goes away quickly, once the cream is absorbed by the skin. Perfect for summer, the only downside is that it’s not the cheapest, €13/£10 for 200 ml. I also love the Vanilla/Cinnamon one from Korres.

I’ve only used this for a month but still I haven’t decided yet if this is a love or hate relationship. It’s an expensive foundation (£ 31/ 41€), with a sheer finish, not very good if you tend to have oily skin. Good coverage, though I only use a very small amount of it. My only doubt is that I don’t find it long-lasting, but in all other ways it’s great. I will write a full review on it later.

I took advantage of a 20% Easter discount to place my first order from BravuraLondon. I’d like to tell you more about its founder, Amanda, but that will probably come in a future post/review on it. So far I’m very pleased with the results I’ve been getting. I’ve used it in different ways, leaving it on my skin for different amounts of time, increasing each time. It leaves the skin very soft and exfoliates your outer layer of skin. I still can’t say if it has helped me with my scars, I definitely need to give it some more time, but so far so good. By the way, this brand has many products I’d like to try, I recommend you check them out! It's also very affordable, £ 9,60 for 30ml.

A wonderful butter that immediately turns into an oil. Slightly fragranced, I love it. There isn’t much to say about it, I’ve no complaints except for the packaging, which would be handier if it was made of plastic instead of metal. I’ve only used it to take-off my makeup (‘first cleanse’), removing it with a flannel. Great price (£ 13 for 100 ml )and I’d say it’s a must try!

Have you tried any of these products? If yes, let me know.

I’m going to the UK this week and I’m planning to do some skincare shopping, if you have any suggestions please write them in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you!

Have a lovely day!
