February usually flies by but I don't think it has particularly this year. Saying that I don't think that 2017 has so far. I have not had too many new favourite product this month as I have been very much sticking to what I know, and I have not bought too many new makeup items.
At the start of the month I went into the Kiehl's store with the plan to buy their ultra facial face cream, as I have had so many bloggers recommending it to me. I went into the store and the sales assistant was extra helpful, and after a small discussion about my skin type she recommended trying the ultra facial oil-free gel cream. She explained that this is much less likely to clog my pores as it is oil free. She gave me a week's worth of samples and I went anyway and applied it every morning for a week. I loved it so much that I went and bought the 50ml size of the product a week later. This is a hydrating gel which is easy to apply and rubs in really nicely. It feels light and refreshing when first applied, and I find it instantly wakes up my skin. A massive thumbs up from me this month!
I have also been using my MAC mineralize skinfinish highlighter in beaming blush religiously this month. I have ditched all of my other highlighters and this has been my only go-to. I love that this is a pink shimmer based highlighter as I have found it adds more glow to my pale skin compared to a golden toned highlighter. This does not have big chunky pieces of glitter and the product applies evenly and easily, which is what I am always looking for in any highlighting product.
I have been loving the Real Techniques blush brush this month. At first I thought this was going to be a bit too big for my cheeks as compared to my other blush blushes it is huge. However, the pointed finish is the perfect size for application of blusher. It is able to apply product equally as the bristles are different lengths but tapered into a point. It is also super soft on the skin, which makes application even nicer.
What have you been loving this month?
