Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer - I usually love anything from Charlotte Tilbury but this falls a bit flat for me. It not bad but I don’t love it. It’s hydrating and gives skin a nice shimmer.

Rodial Rose Gold serum - nice enough but nothing special. Was barely enough in the sample to cover my face! The last Rodial serum sample I used was the same, I thought it was a one off. 

Veneffect Anti-Aging Intense Moisturiser - second sample. Loved it as much as the first!

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam* - very gentle, didn’t strip my skin or dry it like other foams. I liked it! 

Skinfood Gummy Bear jelly hand gel - I won this in a competition last year and am gutted it’s ran out! It smells of Pineapple. It’s an amazing texture, a rich gel that leaves your hands incredibly soft but not greasy. Loved it!

Aurelia Miracle cleanser* - really liked this. Beautiful rich cream cleanser. Removes makeup really well. Leaves skin soft, smells gorgeous. Would buy full sized.

Benefit Hello Happy Foundation mini* - absolutely loved this! Full review a few posts back.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye mask - these were part of my giveaway prize from @sidraimtiaz. These were the best eye mask I’ve ever used! My under eyes looked really hydrated, so much that my tear trough was almost gone! Very impressed. 

Commleaf AHA Green Tea Peeling mask - I really like this! It was pretty unusual having to soak it myself but my skin was soft and refreshed after. 

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - a cult product for a reason! This stuff is amazing! So thick and rich it stays on your lips all night. Love it and will definitely buy again. 

Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior serum - sample. I’ve tried this before and love it! Really nice serum, would definitely buy. 

Kate Somerville Eradikate Treatment - I’ve already got another bottle of this, it’s fabulous. My holy grail spot treatment. For a full review, see a good few posts back on the blog.

Rossano Ferretti Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner - sample. I didn't like these at all! The shampoo didn't foam up at all and felt like it stripped my hair. So much so that I had to wash it again with another shampoo. The conditioner wasn't particularly great either.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour All Over Miracle Oil* - I absolutely love this! It's incredibly hydrating, I usually apply to still damp skin straight from the shower to lock moisture in. It's a dry oil, not greasy at all. It's pleasantly fragranced too. I'd definitely buy it again.

Aurelia Aromatic Repair and Brighten Hand Cream* - I'd picked this as part of last months Latest In Beauty subscription box. This is an absolutely gorgeous cream! It's rich but not greasy.  It absorbs well and keeps hands feeling soft, even after washing again. But the main thing I loved about this is the scent! It's quite strong but so nice. It's thanks to it containing Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Patchouli. I'd taken this to work to use during the day. Literally ever time I used it, one of my colleagues would go "Ooh what's that lovely smell?" - it smells that good! I'd definitely buy it again.

And that’s it for this month! Did you spot any favourites?
