The Weekend Edit #8: February Favourites

It’s nearing the end of the month so I thought that it would be the perfect time to show you the products I’ve been loving this month.

The first product I’ve been loving this month is the Elasticizer from Philip Kingsley.  It’s a pre shampoo hair treatment that restores the hair, making it feel amazing.  I did a full review of this hair mask on my blog yesterday.

The Elasticizer is available from Feel Unique.

Next up is another mask but this time for the face.  The Good Things Five Minute Facial Mask is packed full of Good Things, funnily enough.  I apply this just before getting in the bath and after it has worked it’s magic, my skin is left super soft and ready to face the day.  I’ve done a full review of this mask here.

You can read all about Good Things on their website and their products are available to buy from BootsSuperdrug and Sainsburys.

This month, I’ve put together a make up bag of older products that I’m trying to use up but one new piece managed to sneak in there.  The Illusion D’Ombre in Emerveille from Chanel makes the perfect rose gold eye shadow base and looks gorgeous even just as a wash of colour over the lid with some winged black eye liner and lashings of mascara.  The colour is so beautiful, it reminds me of a cream version of MAC’s All That Glitters.  It is available online and from all Chanel counters, like those in Debenhams and House of Fraser.

The fragrance I’ve been wearing this month is this eau de parfum from Orla Kiely.  It’s a gorgeous feminine fragrance that has one of my favourite base notes- musk.  I did a full review of this perfume as part of one of my Christmas Gift Guides here.

This perfume came as part of an Orla Kiely gift set and is available online from the Orla Kiely website and also from big department stores like DebenhamsHeals, Fenwicks, other independent stores and giftshops.

Finally, I’ve got the photo shoot for my Simply Be dress coming up so I’ve been working hard to make sure my body is in the best condition possible.  I’ve been focusing really hard on my skin and I’ve found two products that have really been helping me with this.  They are both by a brand called Etat Pur that is available direct from their website.

The product on the left is the B60 Firming Reshaping Body Care body milk (£14.70 for 150ml).  It has a light, fresh fragrance and it is light in texture too.  It’s an absolute joy to use as it quickly sinks into the skin leaving it feeling soft without being tacky or sticky.  I have been applying this morning and night to my whole body, really working it into my particularly wobbly areas and I’ve found that when combined with the A90 on the right and with toning exercises at the gym three times per week, it’s really helped to firm up my skin, making it look healthier and feel moisturised throughout the day.  The product on the right is the A90 Caffeine (£11.30) which is a targeted treatment for cellulite as it hits right at the fat cells under the skin which can cause the orange peel effect on even the slimmest girls skin.  You can read more about the science behind this product on the Etat Pur website here but with regards to the effect it has had on my skin, I’ve been loving using it before the B60.  I pump a generous amount into my palms and apply it in circular motions to my stomach and thighs, wait a few seconds for it to absorb into my skin and then I follow up with the Firming Reshaping Body Care milk.  I’ve been using this since the end of January and I’m really enjoying the results of firmer skin so far.  I’m going to continue using them until they’re gone and if the results continue as they have done so far then I definitely think I’d repurchase the pair as they’ve really improved the appearance of my skin.
