November Beauty Favourites
Happy 1st of December everyone! Before I dive into the Christmas Gift Guides (these are coming up next week!), it's time for a quick recap of my November Beauty Favourites.

Botanicals Hands & Nails Replenishing Serum
 Botanicals Hands & Nails Replenishing Serum* (10ml, £14, link)

I haven't been using this product for very long, but after testing it out every day for just under two weeks, I'm already smitten with it. I usually am with anything from Botanicals, and this Replenishing Serum for Hands & Nails is no exception! Made from an exquisite blend of cold-pressed organic oils, this serum has been specially formulated to give your hands and nails a seriously good rejuvenating treatment. It tones, gently tightens, reduces the appearance of micro-wrinkles, and helps to soften dry cuticles. I also find it very relaxing and therapeutic to massage a few drops of it in - a perfect self-care product to add to your me-time routine.

DHC Beauty Lift Eye Care Essence Roll On
 DHC Beauty Lift Eye Care Essence Roll On* (6ml, £24, link)

If you're looking for a great anti-ageing eye treatment, this new one from DHC has been keeping my peepers happy this month. Their Eye Care Essence Roll On is the latest addition to their popular Beauty Lift range, and is packed full of peptides and beta-glucans to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet. The treatment is packaged in a convenient clicky pen that dispenses a little of the essence through the top where three massaging beads are, and these feel lovely and cooling on the skin. It hydrates my dry undereye without overloading it and smoothes out fine lines so that my eyes look brighter and younger. Perfect to use first thing in the morning before applying concealer.

Vee Beauty LDN Lash & Brow Serum
 Vee Beauty LDN Lash & Brow Serum* (10ml, £10.95, link)

Vee Beauty LDN are a new natural and cruelty-free British brand that I came across on Instagram recently, and I was curious to try out their Lash & Brow Serum. Made from 100% natural ingredients, it uses a blend of oils which have been revered for their natural nourishing properties that help to promote hair growth naturally; Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil and Vitamin E (sourced from Wheatgerm Oil). I've been using this on my lashes and brows every night for about a month now and I've started to see some differences, mainly in that my lashes feel stronger and more resilient (I'm not getting the odd one on my cheek that comes out after I take my mascara off anymore), and my brows are starting to look a little fuller than they were before. I'm hoping that with continued use I'll see even more results, but I'm loving it so far!

Fushi 100% Pure Organic Shea Butter
 Fushi 100% Pure Organic Shea Butter* (300ml, £11, link)

Shea Butter is one of my go-to multi-purpose products in the Winter months and this stuff is literally magical at saving dry skin. I always recommend buying unrefined, pure and organic shea butter wherever possible because a lot of products on the market that are labelled as 'shea butter' often only contain 5 or 10% (usually in a cheap mineral oil base - no thanks!), so I was very happy to stumble across this one from Fushi

Not only does it tick all of those boxes, but this shea butter has also been ethically sourced from the Yumzaa Women's Association which is a community based cooperative in Ghana. In addition, Fushi donates 50p from the sale of every jar to Tree Aid, which goes towards the Women's Enterprise Group that helps teach local women how to use the nuts from the shea trees, to make and sell products like soaps and butters. This means they can make their own livelihoods, support their families and further their education and independence. A brilliant initiative that results in a brilliant product! 

Aveda Pramāsana Exfoliating Scalp Brush
Aveda Pramāsana Exfoliating Scalp Brush* (£16.50, link)

Earlier this year, I wrote about Aveda's new Pramāsana range (full post here) which is a dedicated range for 'scalp-care'. If you have an itchy, dry or flaky scalp, using exfoliating products and properly massaging it, can really make a big difference and I've had a lot of success with changing one or two things around in my own haircare routine to accommodate a few extra massaging steps. I recently managed to get my hands on the Exfoliating Scalp Brush from this range and I love it. The brush is so lightweight and features soft, looped bristles which gently massage your scalp to loosen dirt and dead skin, plus it helps to increase microcirculation for a healthy scalp that leads to happy hair days - win win!

What are your beauty faves this month?
