May 2014 Beauty Favourites

Bleedin' heck it's June already.  I know it's a huge cliche to feign surprise at how quickly time passes but seriously this year is going quick, I mean in just over a month I'll be heading off to Spain and getting married!

Anyhow with the passing of another month comes the opportunity to once again discuss my favourites products of recent weeks.  There aren't as many for May as there have been in previous posts but I hope you might find something interesting...
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Bust, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent, Travolo and Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Bust Cream
(here) - a really sexy product for you to start off with!  In all seriousness though I've been making a real effort to improve my bodycare routine recently and whilst I've been loving lots of products from the Palmer's range, this one takes the prize for me.  It's got great ingredients like cocoa butter (obviously!) shea butter, collagen and elastin to help improve the firmness of the bust area.  It's early days but so far but I've seen some improvement in my skin's texture and tone in the bust area.  Hopefully continued use will pay dividends!

Estee Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent (here) - this fragrance is like summer in a bottle, it has notes of coconut, vanilla, amber and bergamot, and just smells lovely on everyone.  I'd drench myself in it if I could, but unfortunately its limited edition and I'm worried I'd run out too quickly!
Travolo Pure Essentials Refill Perfume Atomizer (here) -  I couldn't mention my favourite new perfume without the Travolo I've been using to carry it around everywhere with me.  I've had a few of these handy little atomisers over the years, they're really simple to fill from your perfume bottle and fantastic for topping up your favourite fragrance all day long.
Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub Self Preserving (here) - Grapefruit, salt, lime?  Add some vodka and you've got yourself a rather fabulous drink, without that, and with a few extra ingredients thrown in, it makes a fab exfoliator too.  I'm addicted to the smell of this, I use it a couple of times a week in the shower it's fab for softening the skin and making it feel really fresh.
MAC Powder Blush in Ripe for Love, Oriflame Wonderlash Mascara and MAC Mineralize Lipstick in Lady at Play

MAC Powder Blush in Ripe for Love
- I don't normally like to put anything in a favourites post that isn't part of a current collection (this was from Temperature Rising last summer) but as I found several of these lovely blushes in my local Cosmetics Company Outlet store there's still a possibility of finding it.  It's a perfect peachy colour with a satin finish and the barest hint of shimmer, I've worn it pretty much every day in May.

Oriflame Wonderlash Mascara* (here)- This is the only mascara I've worn for about two months now, it promises high impact lashes and it doesn't disappoint for me.  The wand is really interesting on this, it has a flat side with little ridges that lengthen your lashes and then more of a traditional brush/comb on the other side that gives really good volume.  I'm going to be really sad when this finally runs out, but I've got another Oriflame mascara to console myself with.
MAC Mineralize Lipstick in Lady at Play (here) - I'm a complete lipstick addict so I can't say I've worn this every day in the last month but it has been worn quite a few times.  Lady at Play is described a mid-tonal cool tangerine, the formula is fairly sheer but buildable and is a great way of doing an orange lip (very in right now) but in a non scary way.  I can tell I'll be wearing this a lot over the summer.

That's it for another favourites post - have you tried anything from my favourites, or have you been loving completely different products?  I'd love to hear from you.
