May Favourites

Another month has come to an end! May was an incredibly busy month as I celebrated my 24th birthday and jetted off on a long weekend to Rome (take me back!). May was also the start of the slow transition into summer as I welcomed more corally shades to my beauty collection, switched up my foundation to something a bit lighter and started to get myself "summer body ready". Here are some of the products I have been loving this month....

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter New Summer makeup launches make me very happy and I think that Urban Decay has excelled with its latest collection. I did a full review of the range here but one of my particular favourites is the Afterglow highlighter. I often tend to skip highlighter from my daily makeup routine and save it for special occasions but now love using it to brighten my skin and add a subtle glow!

La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque Sitting in an air conditioned office for eight hours every day has caused havoc with my skin and sucked every ounce of moisture out of it. I try to drink at least two litres of water each day to re-hydrate but also love using this mask for dehydrated skin to soothe my face. It contains Hyaluronic Acid as well as La Roche Posay's signature Thermal Spring Water, perfect for calming and moisturising sensitive skin.

Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment Avocado is EVERYWHERE at the moment and I love the benefits of it in this eye cream. It is the thickest, creamiest eye cream I've tried and it instantly plumps and hydrates my skin. This has become one of my holy grail skincare products and I'm so glad I recently discovered it!

Bean Burst Coffee Scrub - Peppermint Blend This body scrub is the stuff of dreams! Exfoliating, moisturising and it smells divine. All Bean Burst scrubs are made with Indian Robusta coffee to remove dead skin cells and create a smooth, healthy skin tone. As Robusta coffee contains twice the amount of caffeine as usual coffee, it wakes up the skin and improves texture - helping to remove cellulite. The scrubs are also blended with marula and coconut oil to hydrate skin. There are three scents available; orange, grapefruit and peppermint. I tried out the peppermint blend and it is so dreamy! I can't wait to try out the other scents.

Cover FX Blotting Powder The only bad thing about the weather getting warmer is the hot and sweaty commute to work on the tube! I love using this handy compact powder from Cover FX to mop up any excess oil and shine. It is mattifying without being overly cakey or chalky and also contains Green Tea Leaf to soothe skin. Plus it is free of any parabens, fragrances and talc - ideal for sensitive skin!

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm in 'Robust Rhubard' As we get ready for summer I love using more coral shades and sheer products. I've ditched my pink powder blush which can look a bit harsh on my skin and opted for this creamy cheek colour balm from Clinique. It is a lovely coral shade and just adds a pop of colour.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lipstick in 'Pretty Muted' This lipstick shade has become my ultimate nude pink and is one of the most long-lasting lipsticks for daily wear. I did a full review last month which you can check out here. This lipstick will carry me all through summer!

Have you tried any of these products before? What have been your favourites in May?
