blogmas day eleven ... december beauty favourites

Happy Friday friends! With the arrival of Summer, I've been paying extra attention to my skin this month, prepping it for my wedding and trying out some new products which are helping me recreate that smooth, glowy skin effect.



Medik8 Retinol 6 TR - I picked up this product just over a month ago after having a facial at Keturah Day Spa (which is amazing by the way - if you live in WA, get down to one immediately and treat yourself)! I apply this at night, after my toner and before my serum and moisturiser. I've been using this for about a month now and I am seriously loving the effect it has on my skin. Every time I use this I wake up with glowing, hydrated skin. Apart from the obvious anti-aging benefits you get by using a retinor, I feel like my monthly breakouts have gone away quicker and my face is less congested.

Rimmel Waterproof Eyeliner in Nude - The perfect pick-me-up, this nude eyeliner immediately brightens your face and makes your eyes pop. I've also got the Chanel nude eyeliner and personally feel like this Rimmel one is better. It's creamier, more longlasting and doesn't budge all day.

Maybelline Colour Whisper Lipstick in Pink Possibilities - I use this every day at some point - it's one of those lipsticks you can just throw on without looking in the mirror. 

Alpha H Daily Moisturiser with SPF - this hard working product doubles up as my face SPF and daytime moisturiser. I apply this every morning - it goes on super lightly and is non-greasy, the perfect formulation.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation - A tried and true favourite - this foundation goes on smoothly and provides full coverage without being too heavy on your skin. I would reccomend this time and time again and will keep repurchasing.

Kim Kardashian True Reflection Perfume - Another favourite perfume - very subtle and feminine. This does not smell like any of Kim's other fragrances - definitely no sickly sweet or fruity notes. I can pick up the gardenia, orchid and patchouli, with a musky vanilla undertone. One to try even if you are not a fan of LA's golden family.

Have a lovely weekend!
