So it's that time of month again where i share with you some products that I've been loving for the month of November, I've actually got quite a few products this month as Ive been trying out more things as well as just rediscovering products that i already own.

Enrapture Encode Totem Styler
I'm going to be doing a full review on this soon as I'm so impressed with it. I love curling my hair and with this it literally takes me 15-20mins to do, its so versatile thanks to the changeable temperature, it determines how tight or loose your curls will be. Its so easy to use and i love it so much. These are normally around the £59.99 mark, i did get this for £17.99 thanks to Home Bargains but i would genuinely pay the £59.99 for it as it's an incredible hair product.

John Frieda Full Repair Sheer Ends Mist*
This is one of those products that isn't a necessity to have but it is a nice product all the same. The ends of my hair often look bitty and just not very nice (especially when i curl it) and a spritz of this helps disguise them a little bit and adds a hint of shine to the hair too.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil
Im kind of a lazy girl when it comes to removing my make-up; its boring and it takes too long but with this cleansing oil it takes a matter of seconds to remove it, even the really stubborns bits like mascara its so easy. I honestly don't know what i did without this in my routine because its so quick and easy and it really does remove every last bit of make up.

Q Awe The Fine Fragrance Body Spray*
I love using body sprays as they are really quick and easy to take with you on the go, i use them mostly for work as i like to spray myself multiple times throughout the day and i don't want to waste my perfumes for it. This has a really nice mature scent, its not like the usual girly fruit scents i go for, this is more floral and musky but its a really nice scent. This is not a product i probably would have picked up myself but I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to try it as i really like it.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
This is no stranger to my favourites and I've fallen back in love with this mascara - i had a little dabble with some others but i couldn't stay away from this one. It just lengthens my lashes so much and the little ball on the end is great for separating them so there are no clumps, i just love how this mascara makes my eyelashes look and even though its a little pricey at £18 its worth every penny.

Rose & Co Apothecary Rose Salve
This is one of those all round products that you can use on your lips, dry patches, brows, lashes etc... i use it mostly on my lips and I've really been enjoying using it, it's got quite a strong rose scent which isn't normally a scent id opt for but its actually growing on me. It's really nice to wear and it leaves my lips smooth and soft.

Shaka Blush in Scarlett
This is the perfect autumnal blush; it's a lovely dark pink and it gives a really nice flush of colour in the cheeks. I like to build this colour up to avoid looking like a ragdoll but for quite a cheap blush it does have good colour pay off and it lasts on me most of the day.

MUA 'Ever After' Matte Eyeshadow Palette
This is a bit of a funny one because in my review of this i said that i thought this is one of MUA weaker palettes and i still agree with that but i do actually like this palette all the same. Even though pigmentation is quite weak the colours are quite buildable and I've been able to create a number of make up looks with this palette and I've really been enjoying using it, its practical for work because the colours are very neutral but the you can build up the colours and use the darker ones to create more intense eye looks too.

and those are my monthly favourites, I've been loving trying some new products this month as well as rediscovering old ones!
What are some of your favourite products?

  1. The Totem Styler was such a find! I thought I was seeing things when I saw it was only £17.99, definitely a bargain. Do you think it helps curls stay in longer? Whenever I curl my hair it seems to straighten out after half hour :/

    1. The curls stay in pretty well in my hair - i still have curls in the day after, but i use sea salt spray or hair spray which i think helps them stay in!
