September 2017 Beauty Favourites & Life Update

September has been a bit of a rollercoaster of a month to say the least. Peppered with doctors and hospital visits, it’s fair to say that I’ll be glad to put this month behind me and welcome in Autumnal October! One of my most favourite months aside from December and February!

Thanks to me being stuck at home feeling a little worse for wear for much of this month, I haven’t got too much in the way of makeup favourites to share with you all this time. But what I do have are some gorgeous skin-boosting, radiance-filled beauty products that will make you look a million dollars and even feel that little bit better too. It’s been all about the natural look this month and about great products that perform amazingly to restore, rejuvenate pep up tired skin.

So without further ado, lets get into the video of my September 2017 Beauty Favourites and lifestyle update!

NYX Professional Makeup has arrived at lookfantastic!

NYX Professional Makeup hit us with a real bang last year, bringing a huge dose of explosive colours and exciting new products to our UK beauty market. After a long time of lusting over our American sisters’ NYX products, we finally got our chance to try out the range as it appeared in our local Boots stores seemingly overnight. I, for one, was absolutely thrilled with the launch of NYX in the UK and hotfooted it down to Boots with my lovely (equally beauty obsessed) friend to check out the range. It’s still a counter I frequent to this day and I still love spending a good portion of my trip to Boots swatching and oohing and ahhing over the goodies.

Imagine the excitement then when I saw that NYX Professional Makeup had only gone and arrived at lookfantastic too! Lookfantastic is seriously smashing the online beauty market this year calling itself home to many a cult beauty brand such as Bobbi Brown, NARS and even MAC, and now it can add NYX Professional Makeup to the list too.

NYX Professional Makeup is really a brand to get excited about for any makeup artist or beauty lover. As one of the fastest-growing brands in both cult-status and sales, it’s fast become the makeup brand of choice for millennials. Not only does it boast ultra affordable makeup, but it also hits the spot for quality, on-trend and innovative products too.

Named after the Greek goddess who ruled the night and symbolised beauty and power, there’s no wonder it scores so highly on my beauty radar. And lets not even delve into how incredible the NYX Face Awards are too (take a look here for more information).

If you haven’t tried NYX Professional Makeup yet, I highly recommend it to you and think you’ll love it too! Try the Butter Glosses or the amazing Micro Brow Pencils to ease yourself into the range – they’re amazing products to start with.

Decleor Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Hydrating Gel Cream review

It’s not often that I come across a moisturiser that stops me in my tracks and makes me fall in love all over again. I’ve tried many, many moisturisers out over the years. Some an absolute bargain and some worth a months wage, and all with very mixed results. It’s not always the most expensive of moisturisers that turn out to be the best for my skin. Brand wise, I have a real love for skincare from Decleor, Caudalie and Nuxe, so as soon as the Lookfantastic Birthday Edit Beauty Box arrived with a Decleor product, my hopes were so very high.

The Decleor Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Hydrating Gel Cream is 70% water-based in texture which helps it to really sink in and hydrate the skin without feeling heavy. It has a gorgeous scent of Neroli Essential oil to help calm and comfort our skin and is also fortified with Moringa Oleifera Extract (Moringa leaves are reportedly full of antioxidants like vitamins C, B and A). The gel cream is said to create a protective veil on the skin’s surface during wear to defend against pollution particles and dehydration all whilst restoring luminosity thanks to the anti-inflammatory effects of Centella Asiatica.

Decleor Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Hydrating Gel Cream review | Rachael Divers

Gels are something that I haven’t tended to get along with too well in the past, I’ve always found them a little wet and sticky to use and certainly haven’t found them the most hydrating. But the gel combined with a cream texture in this formula is an absolute dream to apply to the skin. I can’t tell you how soothing, comforting and luxurious this gorgeous gel cream feels to use, or how soft and nourished my skin feels after the application.

Thanks to the beautifully silky texture, this cream makes an excellent primer before makeup, and the most gorgeously nourishing moisturiser before bed too. It leaves my skin feeling soft, supple and well cared for.

Sometimes I find that skincare can feel like a chore if you’re not fully enjoying the products that you’re using, but I cannot tell you how lovely it feels to use this gorgeous moisturiser day in day out. I can’t praise it enough and highly recommend it for normal to combination skin types.

The Decleor Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Hydrating Gel Cream is currently on offer for £32.80 saving you £8.20.
