Monthly Favourites | October

Monthly Favourites | October

It creeps me out how quick these posts come around, where the heck did October go at all? Ive tried a bunch of new products this month; surprisingly most of the products I'm showing you this month are skincare and haircare, usually it's lots of beauty products but this month I've been working a lot so I've been sticking to a lot of the same products minus a few exceptions.

Collection Little Mix Full On Mascara in Jesy's Voluminous Black
I didn't even expect it to be that good, i don't even know what made me buy it but its a fab little mascara and i love how it makes my lashes look, it adds length, it volumises them and makes them appear much fuller and i just think for £2.99 this is brilliant.

Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Hot Chocolate
I've already professed my love for the shade 'vintage blush' in these products and i was so impressed that i went and got this shade 'hot chocolate' and i love it, it's a gorgeous brown shade and i love blending it out and wearing it alone with a bit of eyeliner as it quick make up look. It applies really nicely and lasts all day, you do have to be quick to blend because one this dries there ain't no moving it but i apply it bit by bit and blend as I'm going. I really like these, they are so cheap and really great quality products.

Nip+Fab Pistachio Sundae Dry Skin Fix Body Butter
I reviewed this product on my blog a couple of days ago so i won't go on about them too much but i just love this body butter, so much so that i pretty much ran out and bought back ups before they were discontinued. Its a really nice consistency and it absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling really moisturised and really soft. My favourite thing about this product is the scent - i was unaware as to what pistachio would smell like but this is incredible, i just love it and i love that i can still smell it on my skin hours later. I love this body butter so much and I'm so gutted that I've discovered as it's being discontinued.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner*
I'd never tried John Frieda before i was sent these and I'm honestly kicking myself for not trying them before as my hair feels incredible, since using these the condition of my hair really has improved, its softer, smoother and just much healthier. I'm honestly so impressed with these even a few days after washing my hair, it stills feels really nice and soft and i actually find myself enjoying washing my hair with them. If its possible to be in love with a shampoo and condition, then boy am i smitten.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque*
As well as the John Frieda Shampoo and Conditioner I've also really enjoyed using this hair masque too, i only use it every couple of washes or when i feel like my hair needs and extra boost and it makes my hair feel incredible and really hydrated. One thing i really love about this is that you only have to leave it on for 3-5 minutes most others usually say 10-15mins so i like that this is much quicker but still really effective!

Monu Calming Cream Specialist
This is actually an unexpected favourite as I've tried it a couple of times before and i didn't quite grasp the concept of it, id applied it all over and it gave my face a bit of a green tint so i wasn't that crazy but lately I've had a bunch of spots take resident on my chin and are refusing to budge and they are quite red so i decided to try this an see if it could help reduce the redness and make them easier for me to cover up and it worked like a dream. The green counteracts the redness and really makes a difference, although it hasn't got rid of the spots (they're proving to be very stubborn) it's really helped to tone down the redness and make them much easier to cover up with concealer - so I'm really impressed/grateful for this product.

and that is my monthly favourites; not a lot of favourites this month but these products have really stood out and impressed me!

What are some of your favourite products this month?
