My February favourites!

I was pretty hesitant to do this post as I thought to myself is anybody really interested in what I've bought? Nevertheless I pulled myself together and thought WHY THE HELL NOT!

If you know me personally, you'll know I am OBSESSED with Lush!! I think their products are amazing and I am yet to buy something from their store that I don't like. Sticking to the theme of my blog, I also love floral themed items. So no surprise in guessing Cath Kidston is heaven for me, like seriously I think I'd buy the whole shop if I could.

Anyway, here are my February Favourites.

1. My Cath Kidston purchases include - Mews Ditsy Flora scented candle/Blossom Bath Crystals/ Pink Rose Make up bag. 

Admittedly I'm yet to use the candle, but it smells amazing! The actual candle is in a little glass holder which comes packaged in a lovely floral cardboard cylinder. I bought it whilst shopping in their Portsmouth store, they had lots of sales on and I couldn't resist! Currently the candle is £10 on their website. Great little investment for something that smells so great.

I have to say I wasn't all too impressed with the Blossom Bath Crystals. I bought two sachets of them which are £1.50 each. If you like quite strong scents like myself I wouldn't say it's the best product to purchase as they didn't really have much smell to them at all.

My last purchase from Cath Kidston was the Pink Rose washable accessories bag. This was £16 down to £12 only a small save but still so worth it! It is now my new make up bag and I love it. It's quite big and comes with a floral covered compact mirror inside. It also has an extra pouch on the outside of the bag, which could be used for lipsticks and small brushes. Massively recommended!

2. Lush products include- Bubblegum lip scrub (bought previously)/ Dream Cream hand & body lotion/ The Godmother & Rock star soap/ Prince Charming shower gel/ Breath of fresh air Toner/ Love lettuce Face mask.

Now this isn't the first time I've used it nor will it be the last but if there is one thing I can say to you right now it's GO BUY YOURSELF A FACE MASK FROM LUSH!! Especially Love Lettuce. Okay I admit the name of the product isn't the most appealing but it works miracles. It clears up spots, reduces redness and gets rid of any patches of dry skin. If you're looking for an eye appealing, lovely smelling face mask Love Lettuce won't give you justice because honestly it's neither. But the effects of using the product overpowers all them desires.

Following on from the Face Mask, my next favourite is the Dream Cream. Oh my gosh, what can I say. So I know it says for the hands and body but using this beautiful little product on your face after using Love Lettuce just keeps my face looking fresh and feeling lovely! Of course it's also great for the body too. The only negative I can say about it, is if you put too much on it can leave your skin feeling a little bit greasy so ensure to only use a very small amount as it goes a long way!

Sticking with products for the skin and face, the Breath Of fresh Air toner water is a product I bought for absolutely no reason at all, I do that A LOT. Don't tell me I'm the only one, I bet we all do it. I can't say I'm in love with the product, it has seaweed extracts and rose absolute to tone and balance the skin. I haven't seen much effect since using it BUT it leaves your face feeling really refreshed.

The Lush valentine collection was just amazing this year! I found myself in my local Lush store just before valentines day so I ended up buying half of their collection. But my favourite had to be the Prince Charming shower gel, ughhh I can't describe how amazing it smells. It smells so sweet and the scent stays on your skin for the next day or two after using it. I'm gutted they don't sell it all year round.

Other products I'm currently using are the Bubblegum lip scrub, The Godmother soap and Rock star soap. Bubblegum lip scrub is an all time favourite of mine! I don't know anybody who loves lush that doesn't have this product. 

Don't forget to look out for Lush's Easter range, I've seen some amazing products on their website already.

3. Fujifilm instax mini 8

I had to leave THE BEST purchase of this month till last because I absolutely love it. The Fujifilm instax mini 8 is a fantastic instant disposable camera. I bought mine off of Amazon for £77.99 (before post and packaging). You can order the camera alone for a little cheaper at £57.99 but I'd recommend buying the full package of camera and film pack. There are a collection of different colours to choose from!

Using the camera is so easy and the quality of the photos are amazing. I like the thought of being able to take a picture of a memory and instantly being able to hold the photo in your hand. The style of the photos come out looking quite old fashioned and I really love that quality.

You only get 10 shots at a time in a film so you tend to be more selective with what you take photos of, meaning the photos have a little more sentimental value to them. The film packs are a little pricey at £14 but the effect from the photos you get from this camera are so different to photos you take on your phone or a DSLR camera.

The camera is definitely my favourite buy from the month, if not the year so far and I can't wait to capture so many more memories with it. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, I'm really getting into all this blogging now & I'm constantly coming up with new content to post on here. Leave me a comment telling me what your February favourites are :)
