Goodbye September! Is all I can say about the month, it was almost like a whirlwind romance, it was all rose tinted glasses in the beginning with my birthday and all the family and friend meetings but, when reality struck at that end of the month, I had to face the fact that I was going to leave. The flight was rough, not just in the constant turbulences but in the fact that my emotions were all over the place, this was going to be my final year, the last year to do my best before I step foot into the business world. To some people this is a relief and an exciting road to go on. But to me it is an event that I have been putting off since I left secondary school (high school).
Anyways here are my favourites for this month:
This month, I haven’t had anything I particularly loved so much that I would put them in my favourites but here are some that I thought were almost “essentials” for the month.
Hope Girl: Donkey Milk HKD$350/2
As I am back in the UK after my flight my skin was screaming for a good cleanse and moisture. I often get very dry skin nearer the winter months in the UK, and I often find that waking up in the morning, my skin feels cracked and rough from the night. I bought this product particularly for the winter months as it is wayyyy too rich for the summer! I tried it once and woke up to greasy skin, almost like I rubbed butter all over my face Good for coating the bottom of a cake pan but not my face. It contains, 20% Donkey milk and gold leaf inside of product which I feel is very cool and makes it feel very luxurious. Super moisturising and rich your face feels super supple in the morning! This has been my go to and I have been using this every night after a shower.
Mabelline Instant Age rewind Brightening under-eye concealer HKD$120
I have been eyeing up this under-eye concealer after I saw so many people raving about how good it was and you know what! I took my birthday lai see and bought one in Dudes in Causeway bay. I had previously used the Here we Seoul dual ended concealer. However, I think I know why people rave about it so much. It is so good! It doesn’t crease on me and brightens my under-eyes.
I chose the brightening shade thinking that it would be better for my skin colour as I am fairly pale and found that it is great for getting rid of discolouration as it has a salmony shade to them. Just like Mcdonald’s says “I’m lovin’ it” 🙂
Organic Raw Chocolate Raisins
This has been my dessert every night since I first found about it a few days ago. Its crazy yummy! I love the look of them, they almost have a brain like look to them and for a chocolate lover
I love all things coconuts. Coconut chips, coconut curry, coconut milk, coconut body wash etc. I am the coconut queen! Whenever I am craving something sweet and crunchy like crisps, coconut chips are something I reach for. They are sweet from the coconut sugar and they are crunchy like crisps. Struggling tot choose wether I should use crisp or chips as I know there is a whole debate about what is what.
AHC Collagen Capture Ampoule set (HKD$1400) NOW: $450 @ Colormix!
This was one of the “I have to have one” sets you see in the shop. They are originally HKD$1000- 1500 for a set but was reduced to only HKD$400. The packaging is very unique as it reminds me of eye drops haha! The Collagen Ampoule is supposed to be used twice however, I found that you can definitely use it 3-4 times. I use this before the donkey milk moisturiser. It really adds another layer of moisture. You get 30 in a set which will definitely last at least 2 months.
I forgot to take a photo of the full packaging but found one online taken by a japanese blogger. My Happy Life.
I couldn’t believe that this was only HKD$400!
Hope you like this monthly favourite! Not sure if I like this month’s monthly favourites or last months…
