My October Favorites



I cannot believe that it is already November, the year has flown by and Christmas is just around the corner. This post I have put together all of the Makeup and Skincare products I have been obsessed with this October and the products I will continue to use for the rest of the year!

This isn't a new foundation in my collection but recently I have been using it daily. I was very reluctant to buy this foundation in the beginning because it didn't get the best reviews but I actually love this foundation. This foundation is very different to the others that I have because it has a very thin consistency and doesn't dry matte. This product blends into the skin in seconds and gives the skin a lovely glow. I have been wearing this foundation on a daily basis for a lightweight and natural foundation look. To get the matte look that I desire I just apply a translucent or powder foundation and I'm ready to go. 

This blush gives me major summer vibes and that's why I'm was wearing it nearly every day during October. The bright coral colour is just what I love most about this blush as it really compliments my skin tone. This blush has a slight shimmer which gives a really pretty glow to the skin but it isn't too glittery which I find some shimmery blushers can be. The formula of this product is also really great as it is really nicely pigmented and shows up really well on the skin and doesn't fade away during the day. Another plus about this blush is that it has the best scent to it, it just smells like summer but I also like that it doesn't linger and once applied to the skin you don't smell it anymore. 


This is a newer addition to my skincare collection, I must say that I have really slacked with exfoliating my skin but now that the weather has dropped my skin was really needing it. I actually used to use this product as a teenager when I had pretty bad skin and loved it but just gradually stopped using it and sadly forgot about it, then I rediscovered this exfoliator having a look around Savers. This exfoliator is soft on the skin but still has enough granules to smooth the skin and remove dead skin cells. My skin feels really soft and smooth after using this exfoliator and its so gentle that I've been using it every day.

I have mentioned this mask in a few previous posts including my Review of this mask and also my Autumn Pamper Night In post. This little product has really made a difference in my life (sounds dramatic but it's true). I sometimes get really bad headaches and migraines and for some reason, I had quite a few in October and I have been using this mask constantly. I like to use this mask hot by putting it in the microwave for a few seconds, Then I like to wear this before I go to bed as its really relaxing and soothing on the eyes. I wouldn't say this mask completely helps to get rid of my headache but it really reduces it while the headache tablets kick in. 


On an annual trip to Primark (I go there way too much!), I stumbled upon this item and wanted to try it out straight away and it was only £2 for 2. I have been seeing a lot of electrical cleansing brushes online and haven't been able to afford one so I thought I would give this little gadget a try. I like to use this product with a foaming gel and use it to really remove all traces of makeup. The little groves that this cleaning pad has really helped to smooth my skin and help with the exfoliation process. After using this cleansing pad my skin really does feel amazing.

  1. I don't think I have any favourites from last month to be totally honest! I don't usually stray from my usual skincare routine.

    1. I would definitely reccomend that eyemask! Works wonders. Dry shampoo is amazing, when you can wash your hair too often! Xx

  3. i’ve never seen that maybelline foundation, it sounds lovely though! I love hot/cold eye masks I also like to use them for when I get headaches. Recently during my period i’ve been getting hormonal headaches and putting a cold mask over my eyes is a life saver! xx

  9. Some great products here! I haven't tried any of them myself but all sound good. The Hot and Cold Eyemask sounds good! I think I need to invest in something like that. It's always good to have something like that on hand if you have headaches.
