December Favourites!

Hello Lovelies,
This is my very first favourites post and I'm super excited to share with you what I have been loving throughout December.
I have been using so many Lush products throughout December I found it difficult to wittle it down to just 3! As I live in Scotland it is sooo cold here just now which is why I have been using so many wintery skin care products :)

Lush Hot Toddy Shower Gel - This just smells amazing and has such a festive scent, I have been reaching for this over my other products throughout Dec. It has a little shimmer through it which I love!

BareMinerals Prime Time - I just love this primer! The one I have been using is for oily skin, I don't usually suffer oily skin but for some reason throughout the winter months it has been going oily towards the end of the day, but not anymore with this little gem. It really does work and keeps your make up fresh for hours on end. You can see my review on it here

Lush Santa's Lip Scrub - OMG, if you haven't used this you have never lived haha! This is sooo good and perfect for winter when your lips are dry. It has a cola taste to it which is delicious and safe to lick off, as is all their other lip scrub range. I haven't stopped using this and don't intend too - until it runs out *sad face*

Revolution Eye Palette - I have been using this eye palette nearly every day. My favourite shades to use are the first 5 of the palette for an every day look and they are long lasting with eye primer. The glittery shades rub off fairly quickly without primer but for the price it is well worth it! I have done a review on this here

Lush Millionaire Moisturiser - This has been an actual life saver this month, this keeps my skin silky smooth and I have been finding my foundation is looking flawless since using this. It smells amazing too - quite a sweet scent. It is really thick and rich so I would only use this in the cold winter months.

Maybelline Lipstick - This is in shade 630 velvet beige and is a darker nude shade, great for every day wear which has been my go to look throughout this month - love love love. Keep an eye out for my Maybelline lipstick review coming soon which will include more shades.
Have you used any of these products? What are your December Favourites, leave links below - I love reading them and gives me great ideas on what to purchase next.

  5. I have tried the LUSH lip scrubs but I have never purchased them as they are too tasty and I'm thinking I'd probably just end up eating it haha! I really want to try the prime time primer too, I know many people that swear by it! xx

    1. Haha - they are safe to lick off your lips but not sure it would be safe to eat too much ;) Yes, the primer is sooo good i defo recommend although it is a bit pricey x

  6. Love makeup revolution palettes! So cheap yet such pigmented eyeshadows!
