October Faves '14

I had to pinch myself a little, just to believe that it's November. It is very crazy how quickly this year is going but you know that because every faves for the last few months I've mentioned it! I'm very excited for the next two months because I always like to plan so much during this time as I really love winter. I just have six items this month, I haven't exactly been spendy spendy over October so i'll just show you a few things that I love that I've had for a while.
I want to start off with my absolute holy grail skincare product for this month and probably many months to come. It is the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1, which is a wash, a mask and a scrub all in one and it is just so good! I will wash my face with it at night, then in the shower in the mornings I use it as a mask for a really good cleanse. I love it so much as I can feel it working and I know it's strange to say but its like a slight cooling or minty feeling so I feel like it's working. I've noticed a hell of difference in my skin since using this, I would recommend it to anyone.
During the colder times, I step up my foundation into a slightly more thicker consistency as I want that stuff to stick around whilst the wind and rain is battering my face! So I opt for the Max Factor Whipped Creme foundation as its a slightly heavier consistency and I find that it bodes well with my skin and stays put. To go with this, I am really obsessed with the new cream blush sticks that Makeup Revolution have come out with and my favourite one is Matte Dream as I am really into the soft baby pink colour on the cheeks. I find it really fresh looking and I don't want to wear a warmer coloured blush just because of the season change! I reviewed the whole range of blush sticks here.
I love love love a bargain and that cute little George from Asda nail polish is the This little polish is £1 and it is actually a Matte top coat. WHAT? you're saying.. Yes, you don't need to splurge out on expensive top coats in order to get a great finish. I have been layering this on top of some pale colours because I'm into the pale manicure look at the moment as it looks fresh and clean which I like. Im really into the fresh look at the minute!
My hair hated me BIG BIG BIG time. So I needed to sort my s**t out and get some decent moisture into it before it just all fell out. I picked this up from Tesco whilst on the food shop (you know half of my food shop actually goes on beauty products) and I think that it was actually half price so I picked it up because you know I love a bargain. This has really hydrated the ends of my hair and has made it look less dry and just more full of life. On the plus side also, it smells really really good! I would recommend the whole range, I just have to use a really light shampoo at the moment so I can't use it as much but it has helped my hair a lot.
Last but not least, a newbie into my makeup draws is the Makeup Revolution Awesome Double Flick Liquid Eyeliner. I have such a hard time doing my liner and I find that its the one thing that can really pull a look together is liner. This has made my liner so much easier as the tips give you much more precision and I've noticed with liquid pens like this that they don't mark as well when you have shadow on but this glides right over that. I would definitely recommend to a liner newbie as it has helped me out so much!

Let me know what all of your favourites are for the month of October and Happy November!
