Monthly Favourites - October

 October, as is every month, was a crazy one. Time just flew by and things were happening all over the place, it was remarkably difficult to keep up. Anyhow, here are my October favourites, and I'll tell you in advance that I did cheat a bit.

First up is the face category, and my Wotnot facial wipes win without a doubt. I didn't wear much foundation and concealer this month because I was camping and crazy busy, and I also found myself getting lazy and reaching for these more often than not. Whilst they are great and I loved using them, I really must get back into my old skincare routine...

You can actually try a full packet of these out for free, information about it is on this post of mine.

Next up is lips, and throughout October I found myself going to my Baby lips balm in Mango pie over and over again. I don't know what it is about this particular flavour, but I've been using it to death. I also love the packaging, it's so eye-catching.

Then comes eyes, and whilst I technically use this on my eyebrows, since it has the word 'eye' in it, it totally counts. I have been using my Essence lash and brow gel\ so often. It is half used up, grotty as anything and has horrible packaging but it does the job and was terribly cheap - my kind of product!

Here is where I cheated - normally would be something from the nails category, and then from the 'other' category, but since I didn't do anything with my nails in October and had two 'others' I figured I would do that instead.

For the first "other" product, we have a new bracelet of mine that I literally haven't taken off. I love this so much and am so pleased that I purchased it in a 3 for $10 deal with two other similar ones. Perfect!

For the second "other" product is a candle. Many YouTube beauty gurus rave about candles all the time, and I finally know why. The particular candle I have been burning is from Glasshouse Fragrances in Kakadu Waterlily and it is so lovely. I love the little glass jar with its adorable lid too, perhaps even more than the candle itself. According to the website, this candle is an "exotic blend of water lily, spring orange blossom, precious woods and amber" - in other words not at all what I would usually go for, but nice all the same.

    1. As far as I can recall, this candle was given to me as a gift but if you go onto the Glasshouse Fragrances website and click on the 'stockists' link, you can type in your postcode and it will direct you to the closest places to buy some. I have a feeling they are a little expensive, but perhaps worth treating yourself :)

  3. Been a while since I burned a candle - it just doesn't seem to be something I'd do when it's spring/summer, but perhaps in winter :) Love Maybelline Baby Lips - though my fav is still the menthol one!

    1. It really is a bit strange of me to be getting into candles now, totally the wrong time of the year, but fun all the same! :)
