As you know, I don't do monthly favourites posts (I do post about what I've loved each month, but they aren't necessarily product-focused), but I love to share products that I'm really enjoying and using consistently. Today I have five  products that I love and want to tell you about!

Roger & Gallet Rose Soothing Shower Gel*: I think that this brand is so underrated - they sell products with a beautiful blend of notes, and they're all affordable, yet feel luxurious. I adore anything rose scented (not artificial rose though - I like authentic scents), as the scent brings back SO MANY happy memories from my childhood. My Granda had a huge rose garden and would give me a bouquet every Sunday during the summer, so it really is a nostalgic scent for me. This shower gel is perfect for this time of year, and the warmer weather we've been having! I love that it's in a tube, so I'll be able to get every last drop out, and I adore the gentle scent. I was lucky enough to be sent the fragrance too, which I layer with the shower gel and extend the wear time of this beautiful fragrance. If rose isn't your thing, try one of their other scents and I bet you won't. regret it. Any product from this brand would make a gorgeous gift too!

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil*: It's years since I used anything from this brand, but was lucky enough to have been sent a few products recently. I used a few bottles of the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate when it was first released and I remember trying to get my hands on this cleansing oil after its launch, but it was sold out everywhere! This couldn't arrived at a better time because I am steadily working my way through my stash, and whilst I do have micellar water products, I realised that I didn't have a cleansing oil. I know that some people can be put off by essential oils (and I also find some products to be too harsh for my skin), but this cleansing oil also contains squalane and evening primrose oil, both of which are really nourishing, so for me, they balance the (sometimes harsh) effects of essential oils.  I massage it into a full face of makeup and I don't need to tug at the eye area at all - just gentle massaging motions will remove my mascara and eye liner with ease. After emulsifying with water, I rinse thoroughly and then go in with a second cleanse, to ensure that my skin is completely clean. This oil is a dream to work with - all makeup just melts away so easily - from full coverage, to just SPF and a hint of tinted moisturiser, but I am most impressed with the way is which it removes my eye makeup, without stinging or leaving a film, plus my skin feels clean and comfortable, rather than stripped. I highly recommend if you're in the market for a new cleansing oil.

Laura Mercier Coconut & Almond Hand Cream: I just adore anything from this line - the sweet scent feels so comforting on the skin and this is so nourishing, without being greasy. There are other scents available if this doesn't sound like your type of fragrance, but I adore this one and have the matching fragrance too. I just need to re-stock on the body soufflé. It's a nice, relatively inexpensive, way of adding some luxury to your everyday life. Ii honestly couldn't even guess how many tubes of hand cream I have used since Covid started! I was always a hand cream fan, but even more so over the past 15 months!

Marc Jacobs At Lash'd Lengthening & Curling Mascara: This mascara is different from what I usually go for, because I like quite dense wands that will give me lots of volume, but this mascara focuses on definition, lengthening and curling. I've been asked if I've had a lash lift or lash extensions when wearing this, because it makes my lashes look so long! I've almost pulled lashes out at times, thinking that they were loose ones, but it's just a case of them being that long! It's a truly amazing mascara & I love that it doesn't feel at all crispy, doesn't flake or doesn't smudge! 10/10 from me!

Nars Sunkissed Bronzing Cream: Finally, I am really enjoying using this bronzing cream, which I reviewed here. The texture is so creamy, but not greasy and I just find that it gives my skin a very natural, sun-kissed glow. It's very forgiving on dry skin, but think it would work well on normal/combination too. I fake tan weekly, so this is perfect for making sure that my neck and face match, as my face never tans as dark as my body. It can be used either to add some gentle definition or an all over bronzer, for a sunkissed look - whichever takes your fancy.

Have you used any of these? I'd love to hear what your current favourite products are?
