October Favourites

The temperatures really have dropped this month, and the favourites I have for the past few weeks all show that! Please share what you’ve been loving this month as well 🙂

I started going back to work again in the past month so haven’t had as much time to discover new brands and products but I’ve got a few here which I had never tried before.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

Believe it or not I had never used a single product from Kiehl’s before, but I changed that recently by getting the gentle liquid facial cleanser, and this ultra facial cream. This has become my favourite for fall and a daily essential. Its super hydrating, and gentle and doesn’t leave my skin greasy which is a really important factor for me when it comes to moisturiser. The colder weather always leaves my skin feeling drier and more sensitive, especially after coming back from work or a shower, and this moisturiser has kept my skin soft and plump throughout the cold days.

 

Garnier Ultimate Blends – The marvellous transformer balm

After having dry and frazzled hair for a couple of months now I thought I would try out a hair balm and sort it out once and for all. The hair treatments can be quite expensive, and as I wasn’t sure it it would even make a visible difference or not, I tried out the Garnier Ultimate Blends hair balm which has organ oil Camellia. I use it after shampooing my hair, and then slather this on generously and leave it in while I wash the rest of my body. I started off with using it pretty much every day, and saw a difference from Day 1. My hair was a lot softer and tameable with no flyaway bits. This is easily one of the best hair products I’ve purchased, and at £5 its a bargain!

Sephora Green clay mask

I got this back in September in Portugal, but been using it weekly in the evenings and it has made a massive difference in the skin around my nose and chin. This clay mask is extremely gentle, and because it isn’t one of those that completely dies on your face, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling over tight or dry. It clears up my pores and reduces their appearance, as well as making my skin feel softer and more absorbent for toner and moisturiser to follow. It says on the packet that there are 4 uses, but I’ve been using it only on my chin and nose area, and it has lasted me ages!

 

Joules Bracken Scarf

I desperately needed a scarf as the weather in London plummeted overnight and I found this one by Joules, which I got in the cream/black/white checked pattern. Its so soft and long enough to really wrap around you depending on how cold it is. Theres a variety of colours, and can be washed in the washing machine, which for me is a must. The quality of the material was completely unchanged when washed which is amazing! Its also only £15 which is fantastic for such a great quality product.

 

Leg warmers

Bit of a random one but I’ve been wearing leg warmers to work every day. Its been so cold while I’m on my commute, and keeping areas like your neck, wrists and ankles can help to keep you warm. You can wear them inside your boots and take them off while at work, or if you’ve got a more relaxed dress code, you can keep them on all day!

 

Haunting of Hill House

This new Netflix show which aired this month was recommended to me by numerous people, and we started watching an episode a night, before bed (I think you need the darkness and ambience for the full effect!). The story follows a family with five children, and flips back and forth between the present day and their past, growing up in a haunted house. Its quite a sad story but wonderfully produced and would recommend it to any horror show lovers out there!

 

As always, thank you so much for reading and please let me know any comments and suggestions down below or on Twitter/Instagram. I’d love to know what you’ve been loving this month and if you’re using any of the products too 🙂

See you in the next one!
