May Favourites 2014


You know time is flying by when May is already over and exams are just round corner! I was quite hesitant in gathering my May favourites because it’s the first time I had to look back on what I loved the past month. Without rambling on too much, here are a couple of things that stood out the most in May. Enjoy!

The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist – €10.50

This just smells gorgeous. I mentioned this product in my recent Body Shop Haul, if you want to go check that out 😉 This stays on for a good 4 hours i would say which is very good for a mist as they aren’t as strong as perfumes. If you like the smell of coconut, I definitely recommend this!


The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil – €13.70

I’ve been using this all month long to see how it works with my skin – and I absolutely love it! It removes waterproof makeup really easily leaving your skin so clean and soft. I find that it also doesn’t dry the skin like some other cleansers do – and it’s good for all skin types, which is a plus. Oil-based products are really good for the skin as they don’t strip the skin from its natural oils, but on the contrary, they balance and nourish the skin which really helps with breakouts and acne-prone skin.


Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Light Beige – €14.07

I’ve never had a CC cream before, so I was really excited to try this. It goes on really smoothly, easily an blends beautifully. It’s medium coverage but it is quite buildable so that doesn’t bother me. There are days where I really don’t feel like putting on foundation (especially because it’s so hot and humid in Malta!), so this really comes in handy. I apply it by dotting it onto my face and blending with my fingers as I find that it gives me easier and even application.


Nivea Original Lip Butter – €3

I think I have just found one of my all time lip care products! This lip butter keeps your lips so moisturised and hydrated, making them so so soft! Since the product comes in a tin container (i don’t really know how to explain it..), just make sure that you have clean hands when applying the lip butter because otherwise you’ll make the product inside the tin container really yucky and full of bacteria.


 Darkhorse by Katy Perry

I must admit, when I first heard the song, I REALLY didn’t like it. But it seems that it’s stuck on replay on radio because they can’t seem to stop playing it. This is one of those songs that I start liking after listening to it over and over. And now, I can actually say that I love it! And being honest, my favourite bit is Juicy J’s part. I try so hard to have the rapper swag when singing along…and needless to say, I fail MISERABLY. A for effort, I suppose.


Becky’s by Rebecca Borg

My favourite person of the month has to be my friend, Rebecca from Becky’s. Not only is she one of the sweetest people I know, but she is also SUPER talented at creating all kinds of yummy treats – go check her out now! For all you Maltese people who would like to try out some of her yummy goodness, you can always contact her to make an order, and believe me – you won’t be disappointed! (She had made me a dark chocolate birthday cake and it was DIVINE). Oh and Reb, if you’re reading this – SURPRISE! 🙂 x
