FEBRUARY FAVOURITES





Hello lovelies! Hope you're all doing well and are having a great day. I've just got back from work to find out my Boyfriend has just got a great new job, so that's exciting. I've been trying to get a post up everyday lately, but I missed yesterday - boo! Attempting to juggle two jobs and a social life gets in the way at times but I'm doing my best!
So, it's almost a week into March already so I figured it was about time to do my February favourites. I have quite a few favourites this time around. February's such a short month, so when I was pulling all my favourites together, I was surprised to realise just how many things I had to include in this post. I've been trying lots of new things and rediscovering some old favourites this month. It's not an insane amount but I'll try not to ramble on too much as this post could get quite long! If you'd like any full reviews of anything, let me know as I'd be more than happy to do them. Anyway, let's get into the favourites!

Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Body Spray
I bought this on a whim a while ago while Soap & Glory was on 3 for 2 and I absolutely love it. I'm not usually one for body sprays, but this is really lovely. It lasts quite a while, particularly when I spray it on my hair and clothes and it has that classic gorgeous Soap & Glory 'Pink' scent.

Soap & Glory Sit Tight Intense XS
I did a full review of this last month so if you'd like more details you can see that here. But basically, this product actually does what it says on the tin and I love it! It's generally made the skin on my thighs and bum feel smoother and tighter. Keep in mind that my thighs and bum weren't too wobbly in the first place as I do exercise to keep them toned! This is no quick fix, but it does make a difference.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Shampoo
I've had an on off relationship with this Shampoo for about 2 or 3 years now and I'm sure they've reformulated it or something because it's amazing now! I usually touch up my roots every 2 to 3 weeks as I can't stand any growth showing, but using this, its been just over 4 weeks and I only just need to do them. It also gives great natural highlights to my hair. This is fab if you want to be just a bit blonder for summer. I've heard mixed reviews about this saying it's drying or makes the hair yellow, but I use this with a toning shampoo and a hydrating conditioner and haven't had any problems with it.

Abercrombie 8 Perfume
I bought this ages ago in New York and loved it for a while, then forgot about it. I rediscovered it the other day and absolutely fell in love with it again. The scent has notes of Ginger, Peach and Jasmine, which of course, I got from the website as I'm awful at describing scents. In simple terms, I'd say this is a girly, but sophisticated scent. Love!

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub
I doubt I even need to tell you all anything about this as I've seen so many bloggers rave about it! This is such a lovely scrub, it's not too rough, but not so gentle it doesn't do anything either. This smells like maple syrup, so not one for those who don't like sweet scents! What I love about this, is I can use it every other day, or probably even every day, although, I'd only do this if your skin really needs it - i.e. dry winter skin - as over exfoliating can irritate the skin.

Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Mask
I've been absolutely loving using this as my weekly (or twice weekly!) face mask this month. It smooths the skin, clears pores and reduces any redness after even the first use. My skin type is normal with a sometimes very slightly oily t-zone and this seems perfect for it. I don't tend to get severe blackheads, but the pores around my nose are slightly larger than anywhere else on my face and can sometimes get a bit clogged but this sorts that right out, which is fab.

CND Solar Oil Cuticle Oil
This is easily the best cuticle oil I've ever tried. I use it on all my clients too! This softens the cuticles and seriously strengthens the nails with continued use. I use this every night before bed and it's completely stopped my nails from peeling and breaking and they've been growing so much faster. I bought this from a genuine ebay seller as it's not the easiest stuff to get hold of. Link here.

Soap & Glory Lid Stuff
Are we seeing a pattern here? It wouldn't be right if my favourites posts weren't full of Soap & Glory would it? It's a fab palette for everyday looks as it's fantastic quality and only £10, which is great for four, good sized eyeshadows. I reviewed this in full here and showed it in an eye makeup post here.

Soap & Glory Supercat Liner
This is a gorgeous eyeliner, it's super black and easy to use. Again, I won't talk about this too much as I reviewed it in full here and showed it in an eye makeup post here, however if you're after a good, easy to use, very black liquid liner, give this a go!

MAC Coral Bliss Lipstick
This is another product I've reviewed in full so check that out here for more info and swatches. I've been loving this this month, even though it's quite a summery colour. I've loved mixing this with MAC's Creme D'nude to tone it down a little and make it slightly more appropriate for the season.

Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub
I'm sure you've all heard loads about these already but they really are great. I use this whenever my lips are looking a bit dry and flaky and it makes them completely smooth and kissable again! This one smells and tastes like chocolate which is lovely. If you haven't already used a lip scrub, it's definitely worth giving one a go, particularly if you're prone to getting dry lips. It makes lipstick go on a lot smoother too, so if you like a matte lipstick, but hate that it shows every little flaw in your lips, it's definitely worth giving one of these a try.

Hope you enjoyed reading! Let me know what some of your favourites have been this month.
