Goodbye September, and hello October AND autumn! I was seriously loving some products in September and I have been so excited to share them with you all today. So let’s just get on with it!
- The Body Shop Glazed Apply Bath Jelly.
I know this is a product from Christmas 2014, but I don’t care. I fell in love with this when it first came out, so I picked it up in the January sales. Since then I have used it once in a while as a treat and this stuff lasts ages! Only recently have I used it more than previously and I am really sad that I am one or two more uses away from this being finished. I don’t think Glazed Apple is coming back this year, instead it appears to be being replaced by Glazed Plum… Which I don’t think will be as good but whatever. This has left me feeling lovely and soft after a long soak, and smelling of yummy apples. I hope The Body Shop bring back the bath jellies so that I can pick up the other scents this year.
- Jo Malone Cologne in Earl Grey & Cucumber (review here).
Ever since getting this thanks to my job, I have loved it and let me tell you, it has lasted AGES! I used this on a shopping afternoon and drinks evening out recently in September and I really loved using it. It lasts ages, smells gorgeous and lady like, as well as just being a complete classic for me now. It’s definitely going to be my scent for my graduation! It’s just a shame it costs so much, but I can see this bottle lasting me years as I only use it when I really fancy it. I don’t go crazy with the bottle otherwise it’ll all be used up really quickly.
- Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm.
If there is a lip balm that I go back to every autumn and winter, it’s this. It’s just so creamy and moisturising and it really does help me when my lips are incredibly dry, which they have been a lot lately. Not only that, but I haven’t been that bothered about wearing lipstick this month and I really don’t know why. I’ve just felt “meh” whenever I look at my lipsticks and end up slathering this on before I leave the house. It’s just perfect, and I can never say anything wrong about it!
- Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Softening Nourishing Lotion.
I stopped using this a while ago, only recently remembering that I owned it when going through my beauty cupboard. Instead of using this as a body lotion I’ve been using it as a in shower body lotion, and also to shave with and I don’t care if you’re not meant to do this, because it works really well for me. I don’t get time to apply body lotion after I get out of the shower or bath these days, so I need to keep moisturised somehow. Being able to apply this all over and rinse it off after I’ve used a shower gel is really good, and it leaves me feeling soft and smooth all day! It also smells really nice! For shaving it really does the job, and has saved me using all my expensive shave gel too.
- Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lip Gloss.
I picked this up a couple of months ago and have been using it none stop. It’s a really summery moisturising lip gloss with SPF 15, perfect for holidays, which is why I picked it up. I didn’t really wear any lipstick when I went on holiday so I doubt I will do the next time I go, so this is a great option to wear from day to evening. This smells and tastes delicious, just like island berries and has a light pink/red shade to it. I keep this in my backpack to apply when out on the go. It isn’t sticky which I really like, but due to that it doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to, which is pretty annoying. I picked this up in Asda for £3, but in Boots it retails for for nearly £8, shocker! So if you’re wanting to pick this up, go to your local Asda and pick up a bargain!
So, those are my favourites from September. They’re nothing special, I’ll admit that but they’re essentials to be honest and ones I have been loving this month for sure.
