May Favourites

I have a whole pile of favourites this month, which is highly unusual but this month I've been trying quite a few beautiful new products. 

Subtle Energies Facial Blend - This is the nicest smelling product I've ever used. It truly smells amazing. Every night I look forward to using it and I love it so much that a few nights when I've forgotten to put it on I've gotten out of bed just to use it. I kid you not. Since I've been using this along with the Subtle Energies moisturiser and ECO. C serum my skin has been glowing. 

Subtle Energies Mogra and Indian Rose Gold cream - This smells as lovely as the Facial Blend. It's a very rich, hydrating cream but it sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling wonderful. Normally I have dry patches this time of year, but I haven't had any this year, it's a miracle.

Chanel Chance - I have way too many perfumes and am currently on a mission to use most of them up. I've written a list of my all time favourites and when I've finished everything I'm going to buy all my favourites and have a nice small perfume collection. Well that's the plan, if it happens will be another matter. Chanel Chance is one of my all time favourite perfumes and will be part of my lovely small perfume collection. I've been wearing it every day this month and I've been reminded how much I truly love it.

ECO. C serum - I'm crediting this and the Subtle Energies products with making my skin glow. I started using them all at the same time and after about a week my skin started glowing. I haven't been using the C serum long enough to see huge changes in my skin, so I'll be interested to see how it goes long term, but so far I'm in love.
Lancome Lip Lover - I've been reading about the Lip Lovers on blogs for a few months now so was itching to get my hands on them. There's only one Lancome counter in my town and they are so behind, they only just got the Gloss in Love's so who knows when they'll get the Lip Lovers. I was thrilled when I found them at Fresh Fragrances and Cosmetics. I purchased shade 333 Rose des Nymphes. It's quite a bright colour, next time I'll get something a little subtler. Lip Lover looks like a gloss, has great pigmentation and feels like a lip balm. It's the best of everything. When I have this on I feel like I'm wearing lip balm, it's the type of lip product I've been wanting for years. I can see myself going through countless tubes of this gloss.

Lanolips Banana Balm - Banana Balm hasn't been released in Australia yet, it will be released exclusively to Priceline in July then other retailers will get it in August. Being the impatient person that I am I ordered mine from Victoria Health last year. I can see that this is going to be a winter staple, it's super hydrating and has a lovely shimmer to it, plus it smells amazing!

TBN lipstick -  People say that this is a knock off of Revlon Colourburst lip butters but it's not. Yes, the packaging looks similar however this is a lipstick not a balm. Considering these are only $2.50 at chemists, the quality is amazing. They smell pleasant, give great, opaque colour in one swipe and last well. If I wasn't doing the Beauty Diet I'd be buying more colours. 

Maybelline Colour Elixir - These got so much hype in the blogging world that I was expecting to be disappointed, but I wasn't. If you like the Lancome Lip Lover glosses you will like these as they are very, very similar. I'll be doing a comparison post soon, but suffice to say they are nearly identical in my opinion.  
1 Skin Solution Almond Biscotti tinted lip balm - I love all the 1 Skin Solution balms and wear them regularly. Lately I've been loving Almond Biscotti as it gives such a natural look. Added to that it tastes great!

Sisley Phyto Lip Twist - This is such a luxe, gorgeous product and it looks so pretty, how could I not love it? You can read my full review here.  

Eles Mixed Berries Mineral blush - This looks like a rather scary berry colour in the pan but it applies beautifully. I'm not too great with blush and prefer a light wash of natural colour, which is easily achievable. I've been using this almost daily and it really perks me up and makes me look awake and fresh, which I certainly have not been the last few weeks! 

Colgate Sweet Tea mouth wash - I don't like mouth wash, I don't like the taste and they make me super thirsty. That was until I discovered the Colgate Sweet Tea mouth wash. It tastes great and doesn't make me super thirsty. The only place I've found it is Chemist Warehouse, no-one else seems to stock it, not sure why.

Born to Balm lip balm -When Sophie sent me her balms to try it was horrible. I had the flu, didn't want to contaminate them with my germs and I couldn't smell a thing. I had to look at them sitting there calling to me for four days before I was well enough to use them. I've been using Berry Ripe daily for the last two weeks, I love the gorgeous berry scent and taste and feels lovely on my lips, very smooth and hydrating. I have a full review coming up soon so stay tuned.

That concludes my favourites this month. What have you been loving?
