February Favourites 2017

With February being the shortest month I shouldn't be surprised that it's over so quickly, yet I still am. However I am super excited because that means Spring is almost here!!

Here's what I've been loving throughout February...

Mini Eggs 

I know Easter is still over a month away but Mini Eggs are acceptable to eat anytime of the year.  I try and stock up on these because they're only around for a limited time (boo Cadbury) and even though some sweet shops sell them all year round, it's hard to find them. These are perfect as a snack when watching films/tv shows or even as your dinner if you're a die hard chocolate fan.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams 

These have been my go to liquid lipsticks this month. I just love the way they dry to a matte finish, and if they do fade throughout the day reapplying is quick and easy. I wrote a full review on these products which you can read here

Clinique Lash Power Flutter To Full Mascara 

I got given this Clinque mascara in a little gift set along with 2 eye liners for Christmas, and have found myself using it all throughout February. I really like this product because it lets you choose between 2 different lash looks, by twisting the barel in the middle. You can choose between subtle lashes or full lashes. It lasts all day and doesn't smudge (I wear this to work all the time and am seriously impressed) It's easy to remove as well with make up remover or just warm water.

Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover

Speaking of removing make up, this has been my go to eye make up remover this month. I've seen so many positive reviews about this product and it did not disappoint.  This removes my eye make up so effortlessly, including waterproof mascara. With some other products I found I was having to constantly scrub to get it off, which often left my skin red and irritated. However with this product you put a bit on a cotton wool pad, wipe and you're done. This product is also suitable for sensitive skin.

Simple Facial Toner

I love simple products and they work so well on my skin, so when it was time to get a new toner it was a no brainer really. I use this alongside their cleansing lotion and moisturiser and it makes my skin feel really refreshed. I particularly love that this toner doesn't leave my skin feeling dry as other toners I've used in the past have done, plus it's so affordable. This is another product that works great on sensitive skin.

The Moorside

A TV Show I was obsessed with during February was The Moorside. It was a 2 part BBC documentary based on the true story of the disappearance of Shannon Matthews. It starred Sherdian Smith (who is just amazing in every role she plays) as Julie Bushby who organises the search for Shannon. However after finding Shannon, Julie and the rest of the estate discover the real truth. I think the BBC did a fantastic job on this and if you haven't seen it I highly recommend you do. It's on BBC iPlayer for a few more weeks but I'm sure it's on YouTube somewhere too.
