May Favourites

Its official, we're half way through they year! Where the hell did that go?! I feel like the older I get, the quicker the years fly by! This month has had some good times and some not so good times, but these products have helped me through...

01.    Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil // My lips are dry pretty much all year round so I always have a lip balm or some sort of lip product on the go. I’ve done a post about this before (you can read that here if you like) so I won’t go in to too much detail, but I’ve been using this pretty much non-stop all month and I’ve really noticed a difference in the condition of my lips. I’ve been putting this on my lips as the last step in my skin care routine at night, so when I wake up in the morning my lips feel all nourished and soft! I would definitely recommend grabbing this if you can find it!

02.   Origins Drink Up Intense Overnight Moisture Mask // I’ve always had a thing for this mask but this month our love affair grew! There is nothing I don’t love about this mask. My skin loves it, it smells amazing and I wake up in the morning with plump, soft and very happy skin! If I’ve had a stressful day at work or an alcohol heavy night, I’ll make sure I put this on before my head hits the pillow and it’s like nothing ever happened! I use this about 2 maybe 3 times a week at the moment. I’m almost running out, I think it’s time I treat myself to the big tube of this stuff!

03.   YSL Shocking Mascara // This was a throwback purchase for me at the start of the month. I used to use this all the time and for some reason just stopped. I was wondering around Debenhams, I needed a new mascara so decided to pick this up again. It’s a bit clumpier than I remember, but I still really like it! It gives my lashes a ton of thickness, makes them super black and even though it’s not water proof (I don’t think), this mascara doesn’t budge!

04.   Burberry Kisses Lipstick in No. 05 Nude Pink // Yep, still on the nude lipstick bandwagon…I just can’t get enough! I’ve recently done a post about this beauty (you can read that here if you like) raving about how much I love it so I won’t go repeating myself here, but I love it! Besides the Clarins Lip Oil, this has been the only other lip product I’ve been reaching for this month!

05.   Ogx Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Hair Serum // Besides smelling great – I mean who doesn’t like the smell of coconut?! – This has also done wonders for my hair! I’ve been putting a small amount of this through the ends of my hair before blow-drying and I’ve also being using it as an overnight hair mask/treatment type of thing! My hair definitely feels softer…and hello, who wouldn’t want their locks to smell like a holiday? lol

06.   First Aid Beauty (FAB) Facial Radiance Pads // Ok so I’m pretty sure I mentioned these in my April Favourites, but if Caroline Heroines can mention them more than once, then so can I! I just can’t get over how much good these have done for my skin! The flaky dry patches have all but disappeared and my makeup sits SO much better on my skin! These are usually on offer on the Feel Unique website so I would definitely recommend picking up a pot and trying them out for yourself!

Honourable mention: An honourable May Favourites mention goes to Lindt Dark Chocolate with sea salt… I cannot put in to words how truly scrumptious this chocolate is! I swear to Odin that I could demolish a whole bar in like 5 minutes! (I totally did this last night, oops!) Seriously, go and try it!... You can thank me later ;) xo


  1. Those First Aid Beauty Face Pads sound amazing, think I might have to purchase them! xx

  2. you mentioned some really great products! I really want to try the clarins lip oil :)


  3. I'm so glad I found the coconut hair serum, I totally agree, it works wonders!


  4. I've been wanting to try the radiance pads but I haven't been super impressed with first aid beauty products in the past! Maybe this one could be an exception? I've heard so many rave reviews!

    Beautiful photo :) xx

  5. I've just bought the full size of the First Aid Beauty Pads, I've already gone through 2 of the mini tubs and I absolutely love them! I can't understand how something so gentile can do wonders for your skin.

  6. 3 Studies REVEAL How Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by eating coconut fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from major medical magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world around!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read and appriciate every single one of them <3
