September favourites

Ok, seriously, September's over already?  This was one of the busiest months ever both in real life and in the blogging world but it was a great one.  We turned two and are having lots and lots of giveaways so click on the Giveaways tab at the top there to be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes!

So here are the products I've reached for again and again over the last month.  As a beauty blogger, if I'm using something all the time, that means it's good squishy.

Cicaplast Baume B5 (€12.50)- For me, with the colder weather comes seriously cracked lips and my Cicacplast Baume B5 from La Roche Posay has been such a saviour for me and dare I say that it's a Holy Grail product now.  I'm so annoying, my lips get dry and I pick at the dry skin, lips get dry again and the cycle continues.  Cicaplast repairs my lips fully overnight and I'm telling you, there's nothing else like it and I know my lip stuff.  Also, I now have a stupid cold and can't breathe through my nose so lips are as dry as can be, but Cicaplast is helping them along with my little schnozz that I keep having to blow!

Dior lippie and gloss (€16.99 each) - These were really unexpected purchases a couple of weeks ago in TK Maxx.  I'm on a little shopping ban and have been so virtuous every time I go in to a chemist and keep smugly pointing out the fact that I didn't buy anything to Joanne.  But come on, you see Dior at a discounted price, you buy it.  No discussions.  I've worn these two products almost every day for the past two weeks and if you want to see them up close and personal, just let me know.

Stila In The Light Palette (€34.00) - Bye bye Urban Decay Naked Palette is all I can say.  The In The Light palette from Stila is full of wearable colours, rather than the three or four I find myself using from the Naked Palette.  I'm in the love with the four matte shades and I've used no other shadows since getting this a couple of weeks ago!  I just wish it had a mirror in the lid...

Loreal Mythic Oil (€19.00)- Want to know how much I love this stuff?  I gave samples to the girls at work that should keep them going for ages even though I love it loads.  I sacrificed some of this golden oil, this elixir if you will, to show others how amazing it is and they loved it.  Hair oils and in particular this one are the reason why I've gone so long without getting my hair cut.  A quick squirt or two into the palm of my hands and all is well with my hair, ends and all.  You need this.

Origins Clean Energy gentle cleansing oil (€24.00) - As the weather changes, so does my skincare and I learned that last winter.  I've used this every day since buying it at the end of last month and can't say enough good things about it.  It thoroughly cleanses my skin without drying it out and without going into it all again, I'll just say "Go try it".

So that's it for this month!  I've gotten a lot of gorgeous products in the post recently that I've been trying out and I know that some of them will make it to next month's favourites, so stay tuned and bye bye September!


  1. Love love love mythic oil too karen- the stuff has worked wonders on my gruaig. defo gonna pick up cicaplast for my lips,been using lrp ceralip past few days. stila palette looks lush:)

  2. Do you prefer mythic to orofludio ??

    1. Mythic oil is much lighter than Orofluido and it knocks it out of the water in my humble opinion :)

  4. Let me know how you get on, I absolutely swear by it!

  5. I'm going to try the ciclaplast, could be just what I need on lips when kayaking in the colder months.
