February Beauty Favourites

So February is finally over, which means it's time for a round up of my favourite beauty items for this month. I must admit that I found it really hard to narrow it down this month as I have discovered some real gems. I've picked 5 products that range from skincare to nail polish, and here is what I have picked.

Cyclax Aloe Vera Revitalising Cream, Soap and Glory Hand Food, No7 BB Lips, Glam Polish Bellatrix and No7 Pore Vacuum Mask.

I picked this Aloe Vera cream as I have fallen in love with it again recently. I bought 2 big tubs of this when I was on holiday in Tenerife last October. They cost me just 5 Euros for 2. The Spanish seem to be really into their Aloe Vera products and they were in practically every single shop I went into. 

This cream is so moisturising and smells lovely. It sinks in really quickly so you aren't waiting around for ages before getting dressed. I love the fact that its so soothing, and its absolutely perfect for the horrible winter months. I have seen this brand in the UK before in a few random budget beauty shops, but if you come across it then I would definitely recommend picking a tub up.

I got this Soap and Glory hand cream in a gift set which I bought in the half price Boots sale after Christmas. I'm a massive fan of hand cream and have one in practically every room in the house, as well as in my handbag and on my desk at work. 

This is one of the nicest hand creams I think I have ever owned. I have tried Soap and Glory Hand Food before, but I have never owned a tube, and I already know that I will be buying another one as soon as this has gone. It sinks in so quickly, doesn't leave a horrible greasy residue on your hands like a lot of hand creams do, and it smells gorgeous. It has helped my hands so much over the past couple of months, and has really helped to keep away those dreaded dry knuckles and cuticles.

No7 BB Lips in Belle Pink might just be my favourite lip product ever. I was really sceptical when I bought it as I thought it would be just another lip gloss that I don't use, but that isn't the case at all. It is a lipstick-lipgloss hybrid and give such a beautiful subtle colouring to the lips. It's also really moisturising and doesn't completely dry my lips out like most lipsticks do. It's long lasting and doesn't have a sticky finish like most glosses. I definitely want to get more of these in some brighter colours for spring and summer.

Next is Glam Polish in Bellatrix. I wasn't 100% sure which nail product to pick as I've tried some really lovely ones this month, but this is definitely one of my favourites. Everything about it is perfect from the application to the colour. This is a great all round colour, and I will be using this again and again as a base coat for nail art. Please see below for a swatch of this polish and a beautiful macro bottle shot that I took.

You can really see the gorgeous colours come through in the macro shot.

Finally, I chose the No7 Pore Vacuum Mask. I have written a full review post about this product which you can find here. I love this product as it has really helped with my clogged pores, and has made my skin so much clearer and fresher. I have been using this once a week for the past month, and it's one of the best skincare investments that I have made.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your favourite beauty products from February? Let me know in the comments.
