February Favourites | Just Add Ginger

Just Add Ginger blog

As a self-professed creature of habit, favourites posts are somewhat of a rarity for me. Don't get me wrong, I love trying out new products, but time and time again find myself coming back to using products/brands that I've been using for a good while, and have never let me down.

But this month I have not only been using products that I absolutely love, but have also brought out items that I haven't used in a while. I'm doing my best at the moment to use up what is in my beauty drawer before I re-stock, and this has meant I've rekindled old flames when it comes to make up. 

Urban Decay Brow Beater: I was very kindly sent this from Urban Decay last year to test out. At the time it arrived, I was using the Soap & Glory Brow Archery, so this lay dormant in my drawer. But one morning, unable to find my current brow product of choice, I cracked open this Urban Decay beauty and haven't looked back. It's amazing. The pencil is smooth and easy to apply, filling in sparse areas and helping you define your brow shape with ease. It's fabulous, fool-proof, and stays in place for hours. I'm now on my second one, and it's one of those products I just can't live without. 

NYX Rouge Cream Blush: I'm not going to lie. When I first got this blush, I really didn't like it I thought it was too sheer, and found it really difficult to apply. However, after a while of bearing with it, and experimenting with different ways to apply it, it is now my everyday colour (I have it in "Natural.") It gives me that "pinched cheeks" affect which is perfect for the winter/spring months, and just gives me a slight glow, which, when you are really fair, is very welcome indeed! 

ESPA Bergamot & Jasmine Foam Bath: If you are a follower of my blog, you will know I could sing about ESPA until the cows come home.So don't worry, I won't too much this time! With the wedding under a month away, baths have been a great escapism for me, and have put a stopper on any stressful/ Bridezilla moments I have had, and the ESPA foam bath, with it's warming scent has been my bath product of choice.

Bath & Body Works - Amsterdam Tulips & Windmills Candle: This was a recent present from a dear friend, and I have just been burning this candle non-stop. Not usually one for burning floral scented candles in the living room (these I save for bath times,) this has even overtaking my beloved ESPA Winter Spice candle! I've always loved the look of Bath & Body Works candles and heard so many great thinga about them that I was over the moon to receive this! The scent is right on, and fills the room with a light floral scent that brings such a lovely, calming atmosphere to the space. Unfortunately I don't think this candle is available on the website any more, but I did find one on Amazon (check the link above.) 

What have you been loving using lately?
