November Favourites

Tylenol Cold and Flu is currently my number one favourite. With that being said this is a beauty blog so Tylenol, chicken noodle soup and Halls aside these are my beauty favourites for the month of November.
And there are some good ones so be prepared! 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Pallet
This pallet is so amazing good! Not only are all three colors completely breath-taking but the formula itself has to be one of the best out there. They’re pigmented, bendable and leave the skin with a beautiful natural glow.  These blushes have to be some of the best in my collection. I am in love!  If you have a makeup addict you’re shopping for this Christmas I highly suggest this pallet.
For more information I did a review whole review here!

The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Body Polish  
Usually I like a quite an aggressive style scrub but I have to hand it to the Body Shop this delivers!
First off I love the tube packaging; I made a vow to myself to never use a potted scrub ever again. Potted products in the shower only means one and one thing only… swamp water.  As far as the performance goes while it’s quite gentle it leaves skin feeling very soft and smooth. Then there is the scent factor which really makes this product amazing to me. Vanilla Brulee smells like, honey, vanilla and cream its absolutely yummy!

The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Body Butter
Okay so I went a little crazy with the Vanilla Brulee this month!
Again this smells so amazing it kind of makes me wonder if it’s safe to eat. With the consistency of vanilla pudding Vanilla Brulee leaves the skin feeling soft and smelling sweet. Vanilla fans and Body Shop fans I highly suggest you try this range of products it does not disappoint!

NUXE Reve De Miel Hand Cream
With winter comes chapped lips and dry skin. Come to think about it the Reve De Miel line up really has us covered, but that is another post. This beautiful hand cream features coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil making it super rich without being super greasy.
Interestingly this product was tested in extreme Canadian climates. 91% of volunteers claimed to nourished and soothed hands. As a Canadian living in extreme weather I am happy to have an answer my seasonally dry hands.

Avène Hydrance Optimale Serum
Meant for dehydrated skin Hydrance Optimale provides the skin with a nourishing drink of water. Unlike others this light weight consistency makes this serum a winner.  Honestly this feels like a refreshing splash of hydration on the skin it is absolutely amazing. This effective yet mild serum is perfect for sensitive skin type. However I think its light weight formula would be an excellent choice for oily dehydrated skin types too. I have a whole review on this product here.

Chanel Sable Emouvant
This duo was a limited edition so I will refrain from talking your ear off but it is a very pretty duo. 
Both warm toned neutrals look amazing worn alone and also work well together. In terms of quality I think this Chanel duo is pigmented, effortless and everything a prestige product should be. For those of you who already have this in your collection cherish it! For those of you who don’t I found this duo at winners for half the retail value, I highly suggest checking out your local store. Again I have a whole review including swatches here.

 Leave me a comment what are some of your favourites this month? 


  1. Lovely favourites! I've never tried the Vanilla Brulee scent, but it seems right up my alley. Love the idea of a scrub in a tube, swampy tubs of scrubs drive me nuts!

    1. Glad I'm not alone in the hatred of swampy tubs!

  2. Some great favourites!! :)


  3. Thank you!

  4. Gorgeous picks, Tanya! The Hourglass blush palette is totally stunning and I love the scent of the Body Shop's vanilla range :)
