This month I've teamed up with the lovely Holly from Typically Holly to do our beauty favourites for the past month!
Lush's Cosmetic Warrior fresh face mask
The first thing I have been loving is Lush's Cosmetic Warrior, which is one of their fresh face masks. I feel like before I gush about it, I should warn you; this face mask smells awful. It's not a fun, calming scent. Mostly it smells like garlic, eggs, and honey which weren't picked for their scent but rather for what they can do for your skin. I broke out pretty badly and had so many spots this month, so I went into Lush and asked what they reckoned, and came home with this. Yes, it smells bad, but this clears up your skin so much! My skin is the best it's been in ages so I will definitely purchasing this again.

TonyMoly sheet masks
I bought a lot of these sheet masks the other day when I was in a Korean skincare and beauty store in the city (If you're in Melbourne- it's in the same building as the Priceline on Bourke street- check it out!!). I really like using these in the evening while I'm reading a book or watching a tv show, and they feel very moisturising and keep my skin from getting too dry!
I unfortunately can't find these online on a site that ships to Australia. If you're in Melbourne there's the store in the city but otherwise I'm sorry!
I finally decided to try this after hearing so many rave about witch hazel, and this is so, so amazing. So good. I think it was only about seven dollars from Priceline, and after using it only twice my skin was twenty times clearer and smoother, and that's not an exaggeration. Obviously different things work for different people's skin but this is definitely something I would ten out of ten recommend giving this a go, especially when it doesn't cost very much. Really, I can't rave about this enough.

Bioré deep cleansing pore strips
Putting together this post, I'm now noticing how many new skincare products I tried this month! I've tried pore strips before, but they've never really done much for me- probably because I was buying cheap ones and thinking I was saving so much money! While I usually think that brand name isn't necessarily better, in my experience it's true for pore strips. As far as I know Bioré are the original pore strips?? Could be wrong. But anyway, these worked for me, and certainly took out quite a lot of blackheads and other crap from my skin. TMI?? Maybe, but I would definitely give these a try, especially if you get a lot of blackheads on your nose.

NYX's Strobe Of Genius illuminating palette
This beautiful palette is honestly just so dreamy. The consistency of the powders is soft and velvety and all of them are so g l o w y. If you know me and my cheekbones blind you, well, sorry. You've been warned.
I can't find this anywhere online- that ships to Australia, that is- but check in store at Target! I know Priceline sells NYX but I'm 99% sure they don't stock this palette.
