Our October Beauty Favourites



1. Atkinsons Perfume Set

Product Pick: Atkinsons Discovery Set

Rosa: Some of my absolute favourites have been Posh on the green and Sicily neroli, they’re more of the zesty fresher ones, which I wasn’t expecting to like but I was surprised these ones I really really loved. They were beautiful.


2. Estee Lauder Beautiful Magnolia

Product Pick: Estee Lauder Beautiful Magnolia Eau de Parfum

Kalli: It’s not a heavy perfume but it lasts for hours. It’s a mix of flowers like a combination of different flowers magnolia and gardenia, it’s for every ocaisson for every day. I think it’s for all ages.

3. Serge Lutens Poivre Noir

Product Pick: Serge Lutens Poivre Noir Eau de Parfum

Beth: I tried this for a month I tried spraying it on my body, on my clothes, on my boyfriend I would say that on initial spray, it’s a lot more captivating. I love that the way that the peppery scent fills the air.




4. Avene Hydra-10 Cream

Product Pick: Avene Tolerance Hydra-10 Hydrating Cream

Ceryn: , I really like it even though it is a cream is more rich and potentially more heavy than the fluid option which is why I choose to wear it overnight but if you have got a drier skin type you could definitely use this in the day as well if you wanted to, but I just prefer to use it at night.

5. Avene Hydra-10 Fluid

Product Pick: Avene Tolerance Hydra-10 Hydrating Fluid

Ceryn: I’ve had no problems with it, my skin feels really calm hydrated when I use it. And also with regards to the fluid, my makeup sits really nicely on top. Even though it is lightweight, it makes my skin feel really hydrated, especially overnight my skin can become quite dry. So this is a nice kind of refreshing boost for my skin as my moisturising step in the morning.

6. Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

Product Pick: Caudalie Vinergetic C+ Instant Detox Mask

Zainab: It will last a long time. I found that it’s really good if you had decongested skin just to draw out all impurities and like brighten your skin. It’s not something I would use all the time which is why I like this little size because I can use it as and when and I don’t need to invest in the big one.

7. Caudalie Lip Balm

Product Pick: Caudalie Lip Conditioner

Hannah:  I’ve also really noticed a difference in the overall condition of my lips. I normally wake up and my lips are like really dry a bit flaky. But I’ve been putting this on at night and just throughout the day and it’s been a really really lovely lip balm.


8. Clarins Blemish Gel

Product Pick: Clarins My Clarins Re-Boost Mattifying Hydrating Blemish Gel

Beth: I felt like it absorbed into my skin it didn’t sit on the top but it’s definitely has a real mattifying effect. Whilst also feeling hydrating at the same time.

10. Clarins Lash Serum

Product Pick: Clarins SOS Lashes Serum Mascara

Zainab: I think my lashes are a lot fuller than they were at the beginning of the month. I wish I took before and afters I don’t think they’ve grown in length but there seems to be more which is good. I used it as a primer and mascara is and I didn’t feel like I needed like a second layer of mascara after using it.

11. Decleor Green Mandarin Mask

Product Pick: Decleor Green Mandarin Aromaplastie Glow Refining Mask

Darcey: I found this is really nice for really good like glowy boost it feels so hydrating when you put it on because it has a creamy texture and what I really like about it as you can just wipe it off the skin so you don’t have to use water and that’s really great.


12. Dermalogica Liquid Peel

Product Pick: Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Liquid Peel

Monika: I use it literally just once or twice a week at the evening so I did like it I like the texture is really light very nice and simple to use.

13. Clarins Lash and Brow Gel

Product Pick: Clarins Lash & Brow Double Fix Mascara

Ceryn: When I have used it as a mascara topcoat I found that it does really keep your mascara in place in terms of like when you’re taking off your mascara, you can really feel it and have to work it off. So I’m always using an oil cleanser to take it off.

14. Clarins Purifying Toner

Product Pick: Clarins My Clarins Clear-Out Purifying and Mattifying Toner

Kate: I definitely think it does what it says on the tin. It is really mattifying I love the texture I love the scent, it’s got of quite refreshing really liquidy texture so it glides across the skin really easily makes my skin feel really refreshed and clean after cleansing.

15. Clarins Blemish Lotion

Product Pick: Clarins My Clarins Clear-Out Targeted Blemish Lotion

Hannah: What I’ve actually found has been my favourite way to use it is on those spots that are just underneath the skin. And they’re just about to sort of come through I put this on overnight and they just never appear. They just never come into Whitehead or blackhead or anything like that they just never pop out.

16. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream

Product Pick: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme

Simona: I think is one of the best eye creams I’ve used so far. I love it. This texture is really lightweight and it feels so amazing on the skin absorbs very quick after the first week I’ve noticed big improvements. So we’ve worked very well on the puffiness on the dark circles around my eyes.


17. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum

Product Pick: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex

Zainab:  I use it overnight and when I wake up I feel like a changed person my skin is like visibly more hydrated, more plump. I also think it’s really good for your if you’ve got concerns with your skin barrier because I’ve noticed my skin has been a lot less sensitive this month as well.

18. Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara

Product Pick: Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara

Keavy: Double wear mascara is a firm favourite of mine now that I’ve tried it I’ve been using it every day absolutely love it. It’s like a full slash effect in a mascara only like two swipes and my lashes are so long and curled and I absolutely love this.

19. Urban Decay Robin Eisenburg Naked Palette

Product Pick: Urban Decay Naked Robin Eisenburg Eyeshadow Palette

Hannah: I’ve been obsessed with it I’ve been telling people to buy it. I love every single shade. I’ve tried every single shade. My favourite one is still Alien Baby.




20. Hair Gain Capsules

Product Pick: Hair Gain Hair Capsules

Simona: A I found it quite easy to take the two capsules a day I will carry on using it for two more months along with the hair mask as well and fingers crossed hopefully will work even more for me not just the hair but notice the difference in my nails. They don’t break as easily either.


21. Hair Gain Gummies


Product Pick: Hair Gain Hair Vegan Gummies

Zainab: I’ve been trying the gummies for about a month now I’ve noticed my hair shedding a lot less when I wash my hair or I brush my hair, which was my main concern. I haven’t noticed my hair has grown that much, but I know hair gain say to take them over three months. So I’m going to get another pack and see how it goes. They taste really good, they taste like apples. So I don’t find myself getting to take them because there’s actually quite nice little treat.


22. Hair Gain Mask

Product Pick: Hair Gain Hair Mask

Zainab: My hair was really nourished, it felt a lot shinier and looked really healthy. I was a bit apprehensive about using on my scalp because I usually just use masks on the ends of my hair, but it didn’t leave my hair feeling greasy or anything.
