Monthly Favourites... Bumper Edition

Ah a monthly faves post, something I plan, but fail to do most months... but not this month. So here are the products I've been loving most in May...

Lancôme Flash Bronzer Anti Age
I've finally found a self tan that doesn't clog the pores or result in black heads. I've been using this since I returned from holiday (back in March) to prolong the my tan and it's working a treat. It has a silky cream texture that blends easy with no streaks and is enriched with active ingredients to help fight the signs of anti-aging. Now anti-aging isn't top of my wish list (yet) but a self tan that isn't drying and doesn't clog the pores is! Comes in two shades Golden and Bronze, I've got Bronze which is the darker of the two. It is pretty dark on application but not at all orange. £25/50ml Feel Unique and Boots

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil
Clearly I've been enjoying this a LOT. You know how much I love my body oils and last time I ran out of Weleda Pomegrante Body Oil I went in search of a purse friendly alternative... and this is it. Palmer’s Cocoa butter used to be one of my staples until I ditched it for oil, so thank Palmers for bringing this out. With pure Cocoa Butter enriched with Vitamin E. Oh how I’ve missed that trademark cocoa scent. This oil is just lush. I slap it on after showers and baths, it absorbs pretty quickly, isn't sticky and keeps my skin soft all day. £4.60/250ml Amazon here or  £5.10/250ml Boots 3 for 2 here.

EOS Lip Balm
How can something so small and simple bring so much joy? This little cutie is the best lip balm I’ve ever used (Thank You Yessie). They smell divine (I have Summer fruits and my sister has Starwberry Sorbet Smoothie) and they’re over 95% natural. Easy to use without getting sticky fingers and keep lips soft and supple for hours... they’ve even had the Kim Kardashian seal of approval. If you live in the US you can pick these lovelies up for less than $3 in the likes of Walmart and Target. I’ve found a couple of sites selling them in the UK but they’re three times the price.. Cute Cosmetics £5.99 delivered here and Bath and Body shop £4.99 plus p&p here.

Bourjois Khol and Contour Eye LinerEasily my most loved product over the last month. In fact I haven’t put it down. It’s the perfect everyday liner and helps to create a gorgeous brown/bronze smoky eye. See my full review here.

Nioxin Starter Kit System 1
I didn’t really have high hopes for the latest product promising thicker hair – I mean I’ve used them all over the years and none have revolutionised my fine, flat hair... until now. So it’s early days (I’ve been using the system for three weeks, and Nioxin promises thicker hair after 30 days) but my hair already feels thicker. And not just immediately after use but all the time. I’m going to keep using Nioxin for now and I’ll let you know my final verdict. Find out more about Nioxin here If you’re intested in trying it, Lookfantastic seems to be the cheapest

MAC RiRi Woo
Oh I love you RiRi Woo! Now I know I suit nudes more than I suit reds but I can’t help falling in love with Rihanna’s take on MAC’s Rudy Woo.  I wore it last Friday night and it did make me feel sexy... enough said! Read my full review here.

So there you have it, this months long list of favourites. I’d love to hear what you’re loving right now.
