2015 Top 5 Favourites!

Well at midnight tomorrow 2015 will be officially over, and a part of me is so damn happy. I hated this year for various reasons, mostly due to stress, and my anxiety going from good to worse. Alas, 2016 is looking bright already and I really hope it is my year to improve myself and begin a new and exciting life with my boyfriend.

However, something I did like about 2015 was my blog, and how much it has gone from strength to strength. One of my regular monthly posts being my monthly favourites, and I couldn’t go without mentioning all my favourites from the year.

So here are my favourites from 2015!

  • Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer

If there is a product I have discovered this year and truly fallen in love with, it is this one. I used to only use this on my t-zone where my skin would look shiny. This has a matte affect to it, so it was leaving my oily t-zone go away. However, I didn’t find it was working just on my t-zone so I started to use it all over my face, and it worked a hell of a lot better! I’ve nearly finished my first tube now, but I have another one already which I bought before I went on holiday. I have used this throughout the year, and it’s always done wonders for my skin.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Masochist (review)

I LOVED Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks this year! I haven’t owned Masochist and Hoe Hoe Hoe THAT long, but even so I love them. I get nothing but compliments about them from people at work, people in general, family, and friends. They just stay on all day long, and look gorgeous and eye catching too. I hope to own more of these in 2016… I’m after the Valentine’s Day shade next, and Abused.

  • Dior Addict Eau de Parfum

My mom bought me this perfect at the start of the year whilst we were on holiday and it is probably one of my most reached for scents this year. I really can’t describe what it is like. So I’ll just insert a quote from The Perfume Shop here, “A sophisticated oriental fragrance with a floral heart, for the passionate, intuitive woman who ignores dictates and follows her own rules. The Dior Addict attitude is best incarnated by its compelling heart note of the Jamaican ‘Queen of the Night’ a rare and elusive flower that blooms only for a few hours and is considered the soul of enchantment. Intensely seductive.” It is a very unique scent and reminds me of a mature, sweet smell. It’s right up my street either way, lasts for ages, and I can’t wait to wear it more throughout 2016.

  • L’Occitane Zesty Lime Hand Cream

I own so many of these hand creams and I only realised recently whilst having a clear out of my beauty drawer. I took one on holiday with me to use everyday and it was really lovely to use. I haven’t been using it so much at home since I got back from holiday, but this seems to be one of the only things that keeps my hands lovely and soft, even with my eczema flaring up! It also smells absolutely amazing, really zesty as the name suggests, and fresh. I have the lip balm to match, which is really to use nice in the summer, the same with the hand cream really.

  • MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder

I received this powder for Christmas from my mom last year, and I still have some left! Even if I have hit pan… This is an amazing pressed powder and one I was going to repurchase, but my mom has bought me a new one by Laura Geller. It’s just so smooth to apply to the skin and a little bit really does go a long way. I use it over the top of my POREfessional primer and it sets it for the day! It has a handy mirror inside too so when I used to have this for on the go it was really handy. I intend to finish this soon and I’ll probably buy myself another one soon enough, as for just over £20 it is a complete bargain for how long it has lasted me!

So those were my five favourite products from 2015! I would have mentioned more, but I wanted to make it look more condensed down to beauty products I really loved, and couldn’t really live without in 2015.

I will of course continue with my monthly favourites, the next one being at the start of February now! They will remain to be 5 top items of the month, like what I did throughout 2015.

What were your favourite beauty products of 2015? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until 2016, take care all and have a Happy New Year! ^_^

Free L’Occitane Hand Cream In Marie Claire!

This is just a quick post today to let you know about what freebie you can pick up in Marie Claire this month!

I only found out about this on Sunday night and I’m really glad I did, otherwise I wouldn’t have known about it.

Marie Claire are offering 4 free L’Occitane hand creams with this months (November) magazine.

You can choose from their classic Shea Butter, Vanilla Bouquet, Delightful Rose or the one I picked up Zesty Lime.

Nice soft hands! 😀

I love L’Occitane’s hand creams as they’re so moisturising and such a treat for hands in the cold weather.

The magazine is £3.99 and as the hand creams themselves are £6.00-£8.00 to buy you’ll be saving some pennies by picking one of these up.

But that isn’t all! Marie Claire also have a readers offer where you can get a Hugs & Kisses gift set FREE with any purchase from L’Occitane both online and in store. However I went online to pick up a hand cream I’ve had my eye on for a while and when I went to claim my gift set I was told they were no longer available due to high demand and to check in my local store. I won’t lie, I am gutted but at some point in the week I may pop into a L’Occitane store to treat myself.

The Hugs & Kisses gift set is one of the hand creams that Marie Claire are giving away alongside a matching lip balm. They’re worth £16 so no wonder they’re selling fast!

I want the Zesty Lime gift set as whilst I’ve only had the hand cream a day, I’m really in love with it. The lime scent is really uplifting and my hands feel lovely and soft after use. I have it on now and it smells amazing. I want to stock up on these before I go on holiday as I think the lime will work beautifully with the warm weather.

Either way pick up a copy of Marie Claire ASAP if you want to get your hands on a free hand cream as I can see these selling out quickly. I actually didn’t have much issue when I went to pick my copy up and I was tempted to pick up one of each… But I was good. 😛

If you think about it though if you were to pick up all 4 hand creams it would cost you £15.96 instead of £24.00-£32.00… So now I think about it I might just be daft and do such a thing! I need some new hand creams to get me through the summer!

Have you picked one of these up yet, if not do you intend to? Which scent would you pick up and if you already have bought this, which scent have you picked up? Let me know your answers in the comments below!

Until next time all, take care!
