Some Favourites from May


Before we get into the products can we just take a minute and think about the fact that we are about to start the 6th month of the year! I honestly find that quite frightening, I know I have said it before but this year is just flying by. I am excited about what June has to bring, mainly because it will be my birthday!!! And on my birthday I will be playing with real life Meerkats, but more on that when it actually happens.

I have 5 things to share with you this month - things I have been loving due to the weather taking a very pleasant turn, so I'm sure I will continue to use them throughout this summer. First is SunSense Daily Face, this is a tinted moisturising sunscreen SPF 50+ for the face and neck. I first discovered it in a glossy box a short while ago but have started using it over the past couple of weeks as we finally have some sun. I am a huge believer in wearing sunscreen and I always go for factor 50, one because I am very fair and I'm to bothered about getting a tan and two, because I just feel better knowing that my skin is protected. So while that covers my face, for my body I have been using a new product from La Roche-Posay. This is also a SPF 50+ sunscreen and is described on the bottle as a "touch dry gel-cream". I am hugely impressed with these two products, so much so that I feel they need their own post so that will be coming soon.

My last 3 products are make-up. The first has been in a favourites post before but as I have been using it non-stop for more than a month now (really since I got it) it is only right that it is mentioned again. It is a NYX blush, sent to me by the lovely Ellie from Ellalogy and it is just such an amazing colour, she honestly could not have chosen a better one! It is a cream blush so just gives the most beautiful glowing finish to your cheeks and I love that for this time of year especially since in summer we all like to look a little more glowy and fresh faced. On my lips I have been using a new combination my very lovely friend brought back for me from her trip to America - along with lots of M&Ms and Oreos! Maybelline Color Whisper in Coral Ambition and a new EOS Balm because the one Ellie sent me along with the NYX blush is nearly gone - "my name is Shelley and I am addicted to lip balms!" I have been using them together, layering the Color Whisper over the lip balm so my lips have been lovely and soft and the colour goes on smooth and doesn't look cracked. As the name suggests it is coral, which is always such a huge shade in Summer, and it isn't to bright and is even lighter when used over a lip balm.

Hope you are all having a good week so far, do you have any plans for the weekend? I will now be counting down the days until my birthday!
