Shahnaz Loves Beauty

This year is flying by at even a crazier pace than last year and we are already in June! Its that time when I share my monthly beauty favourite items and for the month of May is been more focused on face and body than makeup. Its definitely products that are all about glowing skin especially during the colder time of year I need all the glow I can get. So here it is my May beauty favs:

1.Starting with hair I have been loving the L’Oreal Studio Line Boost and Gloss volume spray for shoots and for myself. Its a hair spray that holds your hair in no matter how much dancing is going on (tried and tested and my friends wedding) plus it doesn’t leave hair feeling hard and sticky even after you brush out. Its been my go to for shoots the last month and actually gives the hair a nice shine as well and great for holding that curl or wave all day long. Plus it won’t break the bank so hands up for this one.

2.Thanks to one of my friends I got the Jo Malone French Lime Blossom bath oil as a birthday gift and its just heavenly. I am a lover of anything for the body with oils and this one is perfect to keep my skin hydrated through winter plus it smells amazing. The blossom scent is just the right amount as I am not a fan of strong scents. Infused with sweet almond, jojoba seed and avocado oils this one is a real treat at bath time.

3.I am totally loving the new Clarins Bright Plus Tri Active Brightening Serum (R660) thats part of my daily beauty regime. The serum melts into my skin leaving my complexion feeling smooth and super soft as well as a gorgeous natural glow to my skin even before I apply any makeup. My skin is definitely more luminous in the time I have been using but will need to keep using to see if my dark spots are reduced by so far so good. Its definitely on the pricier side of skincare but Clarins is one of those brands that you know works well so a great investment.

4.The Max Factor Miracle Match foundation is my new favourite base. I have been using it for the day time fresh face look or when I go out for an event or a party. I out the foundation to the test in Italy and it didn’t let me down. My skin looks dewy without being too shiny and blends in beautifully. For a fuller coverage use a foundation brush or if you want that more natural look blend in with fingers. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

5.Recently purchased on my trip overseas the Soap and Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash that promises clean, fresh and bright skin. This face wash is a 3-1 daily detox infused with natural superfruit Yuzu and ultra soft scrub beads that exfoliates as well as cleans your complexion. This bad boy not only leaves your skin glowing and feeling so fresh its also packed with antioxidants, rejuvenates, energises and brightens the complexion. My skin is definitely feeling happier since using and feels so unbelievably soft this face wash is definitely going to be a firm favourite for quite some time.
