May Favourites

Hi guys ! Happy Friday . How has YOUR week been ?

Today I will be sharing my monthly favourites with you guys. There isn't too much picks - as I mostly kept to these products for most of the month - some of my favourites from April were still firm favourites - but to not sound too repetitive I tried not to mention the eyeshadows and Avon lipgloss again. (Although I still wore them most of the month )
So let's jump into the favourites :

Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss in Bright On ( nude) and Smile , Sparkle & Shine. 
As I mentioned last month - I was testing out some lipglosses and only mentioned the one - this month I'm mentioning these two gems. I rarely wear lipsticks in the last few months - and I blame it on finding some AMAZING hydrating lipglosses. Both glosses I got are from the Prisma Glow range The pink one has the most gorgeous blue toned shift that makes your teeth look whiter and your lips look plumper. The nude one goes with almost anything - and leaves your lips hydrated and smooth - and again looking plumper and healthier.
Carmien Revive Green Rooibos , Ginger & Chilli Tea
This might come as a HUGE shocker - as everyone that follows me or knows me know I LOVE coffee. If I could marry coffee - I would. But since picking up this tea - I fell in love. I have a few teas from the Carmien range - but this is hands down my favourite for cold and flu season. When my throat is sore or feeling scratchy - I make myself a cup of this tea and I do feel it helps me . The tea is a bit spicy - which I love .
Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy All Or Nothing & Cardshark polishes
Okay , I have a serious obsession with these gel nail polishes for the last few months - but May mostly consisted of me changing out these two colours . These polishes wear quite well on me and I get about 6/7 days of wear out of them - which for me at this stage is awesome. I HATE doing my nails when the weather gets colder . I feel the polishes really flatter my skin tone - and is just an all round awesome product for me.
Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water As I mentioned HERE - this is one of the most treasured skincare products in my routine. So much that I'm on my third big bottle already . I use this for mostly everything and anything. I use it after washing my face as a toner , make-up setting spray , after gym , on Alex's face after his sport practise at school - the possibilities are endless. I already re-purchased  - and I can see this being in my favourites for many months to come.
Avon Footworks Marine Foot Balm 
Most evening before bed I use this amazing foot balm, pop on some socks and wake up with amazingly soft smooth feet. I know with the colder months here in South Africa we tend to skip this until Spring and Summer time - but I want soft feet year round (who wouldn't ? ) . This balm is enriched with mineral rich sea salts - making sure your feet will be SUPER hydrated all year round. 

And that's all my monthly favourites for May, what was one of your favourite products for the month ?
