It’s halfway through March and i’m only just getting to my February favourites – apologies! My next monthly favourites post won’t be until the end of April. You know that i’m a beauty addict, so most of these products are makeup, skincare or haircare. However, there is a couple of lifestyle favourites in there too.Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer – £4, Superdrug
This has been talked about a lot online and hailed as a miracle concealer at a bargain price, so I had to pick one up when I was in Superdrug. I think it’s great! It’s a lightweight liquid concealer that blends beautifully to both hide blemishes and counteract dark circles/even skin tone. It doesn’t crease and it stays put for ages. A definite high-street hero!Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer – £34, Look Fantastic
I’m sure that I’ve featured this product on this blog years and years ago, but I picked up a new one last month and I’ve been loving it as a stage of prepping my face for makeup. It’s a wobbly jelly that melts into a hydrating gel that plumps the skin. It contains micro algae, plant extracts, Vitamin C and Vitamin B3 to hydrate and give you a brighter, healthier complexion. Love!

This is my totally favourite makeup item at the moment. I’m obsessed. It was in my stash and I had forgotten about it. Now, I need it every day!

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer – £36, Cult Beauty
I have definitely featured this before, but I recently discovered it again and I’m obsessed. This is definitely my favourite beauty product so far this year and it’s not even new. This little pot of lightweight cream highlighter gives such a dewy finish to the skin, and a sheen that looks natural instead of obvious strobing from a product. It’s a miracle in a pot.Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo* – £18, Living Proof
This is a fabulous dry shampoo that doesn’t cause that white chalky effect, and smells great. It not only eliminates oil from your hair like other dry shampoos do, but it actually cleans your hair and countersacts odours too. Yes, it’s expensive for a dry shampoo and there are great ones on the high street for much less, but, if you exercise before work or go out a lot after work in a food environment (where smells can infiltrate your hair), this would definitely be a product for you to consider.Gorgias London Marula Oil-Based Shampoo & Conditioner* – £14.95, Gorgias London
I love discovering new amazing shampoos and conditioners. I’ve loved Marula Oil hair products since Paul Mitchell started off using it as an ingredient years ago, so I knew that i’d probably like this duo. They smell so clean and fresh, and they leave my hair smooth, sleek and glossy after every wash. These will be great for people with frizzy or flyaway hair, as they really give you a very groomed and shiny look.Frances Prescott Tri-Balm* – £46, Cult Beauty
I wrote a whole post on the Frances Prescott Tri-Balm, and it has been right at the front of my cleanser cabinet ever since. It was even one of my favourite products from 2018 on Twitter. It’s basically a balm cleanser in a stick, but now it comes in fully recyclable packaging – recyclable cardboard, Type 2 plastic and compostable cellophane wrap. This is a cleanser, moisturiser and exfoliator (pumpkin enzymes and natural AHAs) in one – it’s not only a balm cleanser, but it can be left on overnight as a mask too. Groundbreaking!Bilou Cotton Candy Shower Foam* – £3.99, Superdrug
If you love sweet-smelling products in the shower, your love this candy floss-scented shower mousse. A little goes a long way and it leaves your skin feeling really soft and delicately scented. It’s just a really nice product to brighten up those cold mornings we’ve had recently.

The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton* – £7.99, Waterstones
This is an amazing novel. It tells the story of Lily/Juliette, who was dumped by her boyfriend 7 months ago and who has been keeping tabs on him, and coming up with a plan to get him back, ever since. She has some serious problems and the story is all told in 1st-person, so we can get right inside her head. The book starts when she is nearly ready to put the final part of her plan into action. She now works for the same company as him, but under a different name, and is now ready to reveal herself to win him back. It’s a psychological thriller that will grip you right from the start. You’ll gasp at nearly every page!Bedtime Bliss Bamboo Sleep Mask – £8.90, Amazon
I do love a sleep mask, and this one has been the one I’ve been reaching for this year. It’s so soft but is moulded to fit around the eyes, with a socket for your eyes to comfortably sit in without your long lashes touching the fabric. It blocks out all light, and has an adjustable head band to fit everyone.
