October favourites

These days, as soon as the weather starts to gets cold, my skin becomes more dehydrated and dry. Which is why in October I really focused on using quality products in order to inject as much moisture as I could back into the skin:

Ren no 1 purity cleansing balm, Heal gel intensive, Soap and glory sexy mother pucker 3d gloss stick, La maison de senteurs hand cream, Neom real luxury organic room mist
October favourites

Starting off with this Ren no 1 purity cleansing balm, which contains sweet almond oil, shea butter and chamomile oil. It's got rose extracts too, which gives it's signature light floral scent. Because it's so thick, it needs to be warmed up first before applying, but once it does it feels very luxurious on the skin. It's an emulsifying balm, so washes off easily once in contact with water. Most importantly, it leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished. I would recommend going for the tub version though, as it can be quite difficult to squeeze out at times.

Another new addtion is Heal gel intensive. This was originally created for post surgical patients, but it works well on dry patches too, something which I have been taking full advantage of. What with harsh winds and runny noses, my skin can become quite irritated during the winter, but using this has really helped to soothe the area and prevent any further irritation. It's good for fading acne scars too.

Make up wise I've been loving Soap and gloy sexy mother pucker 3D gloss stick in Bashful. Like the original gloss sticks, these have the texture of a lipbalm, the finish of a lip gloss and the pigmentation of a sheer lipstick. Perfect for those low maintence days when I want something that's quick and easy, yet still girly and pink on the lips.

This month, I've been moisturizing my hands more regularly too. At night I'm still using The Body Shop hemp hand cream, but during the day it's all about La maison de senteurs fleur d'orangies hand cream. My main reason for liking this is because it's quick absorbing, but still hydrating enough to keep any dry patches at bay. Plus anything citrus scented always get a big thumbs up from me.

Finally I've been obsessed with Neom real luxury organic room mist. Granted it's not the cheapest of room sprays but as always with Neom you get what you pay for, and it just adds the most amazing smell to any room. Plus it's nice to treat yourself every now and again!

Have you tried any of these products? What were your October favourites?

    1. Unfortunately I don't own any Revlon balm stains. I've swatched it in store though and from what I can remember the S+G has more of a glossy finish x
