May Favourites 2013

Hey guys!

First off, sorry for lack of blog posts but it’s exam season at the moment! (I only have three left! yippeee!!!) And i’d also like to apologize for the lateness of my Favourites, but as someone once said, better late than never…

Anyways, lets just get straight to it. 

Beauty wise, I wasn’t very experimental at all in May. I literally did the same face everyday…

I think this is partly because I had exams, but also because I couldn’t be bothered 😉 anyway..

Urban Decay NAKED Basics Pallette

I have been using the shade W.O.S (3rd shade in) all over my lid, and use Naked 2 (4th shade in)  in my crease and BAM. I’m good to go! I like this because it requires minimal effort, but it also looks quite polished, and makes me look awake when I’m probably asleep inside! 

Rimmel Natural Bronzer with SPF 8

I have liked using this as the weather got pretty nice towards the end of may. I use it where my cheekbones are, and on my temples to warm up my face. I like this bronzer (as you can see) because it doesn’t look orange or ‘muddy’ on my face.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush

Recently, I decided to buy the Real Techniques Core Collection and this was the brush I was most excited to try! I really like applying my foundation with this because it blends it out really easily, and I’m not left with that dreaded line on your chin/side of face! Its really soft, and washes well too. 

Moving on to random body/face products..

Garnier Hand Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Hand Cream Mango Oil

My hands are always really dry as I like to wash them all the time (weird I know) but this really helps. I love the smell as it is so summery, but also I like that this absorbs almost instantly. I wouldn’t say it lasts for 7 days but it does last a while. 

Hawaiian Tropic Sensitive Face Sun Lotion SPF 30

If you couldn’t tell by my blog name, Curious Ginger, I am ginger therefore going with the typical stereotype have fair skin. I hate applying suncream to my face when I’m out because it always makes me look greasy etc… but I really like this. It hasn’t broken me out and my face doesn’t get burnt 🙂 

Body Shop Mango Shower Gel

My friend got me a mango body shop gift for my birthday, and this is my favourite product from it! I love the smell, and just the consistency  It lathers up really well, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. A win for me! 

Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Overnight Treatment Gel

I have been using this a lot towards the end of May, and I really like it. It helped to clean away breakouts, and feels pleasant when you apply it. Its quite cooling and smells lush too!

So, thats what I was loving in the month of May 🙂 What about you? xx
