November Beauty Favourites

  • Save

November is another month that’s bitten the dust and we’re nearly at the end of this year! Here are my favourites for last month!


OPI Nail Envy 

(For Dry and Brittle Nails) I swear when the weather gets colder my whole body shuts down. I’m always much more hungry than usual, my lips, hair and skin get super dry, and my nails become brittle and break much more easily. I’ve only been using this for a couple of weeks but its already strengthened my nails and since using it none of them have broken or spilt!

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Refining Moisture Cream Complex 

I recently bought this at Superdrug in the Black Friday sales as it was majorly reduced and had such great reviews (it’s no longer available there, sorry!). I’ve only used it a few times so far but have found it so effective. I have to say, I prefer the texture of my Clinique Moisture Surge moisturiser, but I tend to use that in the evenings and have been using the Elizabeth Arden in the mornings. I can’t fault the product results in the slightest, my make-up goes on nicely after it and I can really see a difference in how long my skin stays looking hydrated and looking awake.

*Grape Energy Face Serum Hyaluron +

I was recently recieved this face serum by ERA Natur and was absolutely blown away. I’m usually a sucker for high end packaging and probably would have walked right by this if I’d have seen it in a store. This is a classic don’t judge a book by its cover scenario because this serum itself is amazing. I usually use the No7 Protect and Perfect serum, and this Bilka product has a very similar consistency. Its hydrating, feels lovely and soothing on the skin, and smells good too, which is just a nice bonus!

Mad Beauty Disney Range

I’ve already written a more in depth review of the Mad Beauty range. Throughout November I’ve really enjoyed using these products, particularly the bath petals and make up palette!



Going out to Arbuckle’s with a few work friends for a cocktail (or four) was a highlight of November. I’m always so busy with work, social media and study that I never seem to make enough time to actually enjoy myself. This is an issue that I’ll definitely be tackling in the New Year. Its so important to take some time away from working to actually relax and enjoy yourself!

Black Friday Sales

You’re officially an adult when you’re excited about buying a Dyson in the Tesco sales. However I also utilised 50% off clothing on Pretty Little Thing, 20% off ASOS, plus decent discounts at both Superdrug and Debenhams. Who doesn’t love a good bargain?!

Christmas Decorations

I don’t decorate my own house until the beginning of December. That doesn’t stop me loving that the stores and high-streets are covered in lights and decorations beforehand. Theres something so magical about Christmas lights glowing in the dark. They’re so festive and excited for the whole Christmas period.

Are any of your November highlights similar to mine? I’d love to hear all about them in the comments!

    Sadly I was a little broke for Black Friday this year but that’s ok, there were some great deals and no doubt many will be back around next year. Thanks for sharing your favourites, love the OPI.

    So I’ve never tried a single one of those beauty products which is almost unheard of for me but I think I need that OPI stuff. I;m quite fortunate that my nails are so string they’re basically the only part of me that continues to function when it gets cold but a little extra boost never hurts! x
