IN ROTATION: MAY


For this months in rotation post, i thought i'd do things a little differently. Partly because i've mainly been thinking about fashion and skincare lately rather than makeup, and partly because i expect i'll be using the same amazing makeup bits from the past few months! So this post includes a mix mash of all the beauty related things i'll be keeping close by during may.

First up, lets get the body bits out of the way. I've recently been trying out a bunch of Korres products after finding some for crazy good prices in my local home sense, and this shower gel in citrus is the one i can see myself using all through march. It's an odd smell, not really citrus, theres a slight musk to it but its still really refreshing and zingy meaning its the one i reach for the most of i'm feeling tired. The other item you may be wondering about is the weird pot of deodorant? Well i recently decided to leave the world of normal deodorants behind and try out an organic one. I spent a while looking at reviews as i didn't want to smell awful nor sweat, and the Soap Walla deodorant cream appeared to come out on top in terms as being the best for you and the most effective. The fact its in a pot and you have to rub it in with your fingers takes some getting used to, but the product itself works great and smells so fresh and zingy, so i'll be putting it to the test throughout this month to see if an organic deodorant can actually work!

Skincare wise, i recently bought the Korres wild rose brightening cream (you'll hear more about it in a review soon) and i can see it being a great moisturiser as its getting warmer. Its an almost whipped consistency, so it feels really light but still moisturising enough for my dehydrated skin. Day moisturiser of choice, definitely. I've also been using up the Ren evercalm cleansing milk and its a great morning time cleanser for when i want something a bit lighter and more refreshing. It doesn't strip the skin but also doesn't overload it which is perfect for the warmer weather which seems to be appearing!

Lastly for makeup, bases will most likely be the same as the past few months, except with the Chanel le blanc de chanel underneath as a primer/glow giver/general skin enhancer. I've written a full review of it here, but its basically an incredibly subtle radiance primer which just seems to even out the skin and keep makeup in place all day, love. Peach seems to be taking over my cheeks and lips as of late, and i've rediscovered the No.7 sheer temptation lipstick in coral peach, my perfect peachy lipstick for day to day. Now that its been found, it will be worn allll month long. To add a bit of colour to my chops i can see myself reaching for my new Bobbi Brown pot rouge in calypso coral on days where i want a dewy natural look, and the Laura Mercier second skin cheek colour when i want something a little more muted for the evening or to pair with heavier eye makeup. Both gorgeous, both necessities for anyone.

So, theres a few products i can see myself loving this month, what are you looking forward to using?
