December Favourites

Hey lovelies, Happy New year! I hope you’re all doing well and excited for the new year. I haven’t done a monthly Favourites in a little while. There were a few things I was loving during the month of December so here I am with a few favourites.


This beauty of a product has done wonders for my red and spot prone skin. It’s an antiseptic healing cream. At night I put it on my blemishes and redness and I wake up with visibly reduced redness its fab! Full review here of how its helped wih.

Huda – Mauve obsessions palette

Do I need to even say anything about this? The product speaks for itself! It’s got 3 gorgeous textured shades and 6 buttery mattes. There are so many looks you can create with this and I have used it pretty much everyday.

Fan brush – Ebay

I got this brush as part of a unicorn set I bought on eBay recently and I have loved using it to apply my highlighter. It’s the first time I’ve owned a fan brush and I didn’t realise how amazing it would be. It makes such a difference to how you apply you highlight and how it sits on your skin.

Primark Highlighter brunch club

If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know how much I raved about this Primark mermaid highlighter here. So when my local Primark restocked all the highlighters they’ve sold this year I HAD to buy another, after taking ages to decide I went with this golden shade in the colour “brunch club” and of course I’ve fallen in love and used it everyday.

 7th heaven Charcoal facemasks

As I have problematic spot prone skin, one ingredient I love using in my skincare is charcoal. It’s known for drawing out dirt and leaving skin clean. I spoke about a charcoal cleanser HERE which has helped my skin a lot. At £1 a pack for the 7th heaven charcoal facemasks I keep picking up 3 at a time as they are just so great. They peel off so you can see all the dirt it’s trapped and it leaves skin soft and clear.

What did you love during December?

    Can’t wait for that healing cream review. I’m always so worried with skin cream because my skin is so sensitive to that stuff!!

    Love the palette!

    I’ve been wanted to try sudocrem for so long now! I have very red spot prone skin but I’ve been a bit scared to use it incase it makes me skin feel greasy/oily. My skin is already quite oily and shiny so I don’t want to make it worse!! Should I give it a go?? Xx

      Oh no it won’t! I’ve actually found it drys my spots out a bit and I have to use extra moisturiser so I reckon it would be great on your skin! Xx

    I actually want to try Sudocream as I have hormonal breakouts and redness, it just came to Bosnia so I’m hunting it down in local stores. Lovely favorites. xx

    I’d really love the Huda palette. The shades are stunning and just my colours. I’ve been eyeing up Huda for ages. Might have to go for it. The highlighter looks fab too. I bought my daughter the Primark Insta girl finishing powder (so I can use it) for her stocking. It’s meant to diffuse the light with blue reflecting particles! Yet to try it properly but love the concept.
    Lovely post as always.

    Love using sudocream, not many people know but it’s actually one of the best things to use when it comes to spots. I’ve been using it for years now.
