Guest Post | Favourite Autumn/Winter Products

Today's post is a guest post from Alex Georgie from her self entitled blog. Make sure to check out her blog!

Hi everyone!
 I’m Alex Georgie and I blog here!

Firstly I’d like to thank Stephanie so much for letting me guest post on her blog. I absolutely love Autumn so I’ll be telling you all about my favourite products this season. Onto the products...

With the colder weather drawing in, you definitely need a good moisturiser on hand (don’t want to be seeing any dry bits!). For this, I love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter. It’s so nourishing, has a lovely scent and this one has an added bonus of gradual tanning. I’m still convincing people that I “just got a really good holiday tan!”

I’m quite the flirt with face moisturisers, I flit between a few but currently I’ve been liking this one from Good Things. It’s not too heavy and I like that it has SPF in it for those bright Autumnal days. Plus this product has none of the nasty chemicals in and the fruity scent is divine!

I love darker polishes for Autumn/Winter and this glossy looking navy one is lovely. This is Collection (2000)’s 12 Blue My Mind. Opaque in one coat and with a pearl finish, this polish has been gracing my nails a lot more recently.

I’m a neutrals girl all year round but I love deepening the look with darker browns in Autumn/Winter, it just feels appropriate! I’ve been using Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze as a base, then 'Fiery' from MUA’s Undress Me Too palette all over the lid with 'Obsessed' for the outer corner and the crease. My go-to Autumn/Winter look right there!

In contrast to light, floral summer scents, I like my Autumn/ Winter scents to be heavier. I like this Diesel Plus Plus Feminine one because it’s still quite not too heavy, not too light (great description there Alex!). Like most beauty bloggers, I can’t describe scents but the top notes are bitter orange, lily-of-the-valley, cassis, pineapple and fruity notes.

I feel like I’m committing a beauty crime here including this candle. A sweet candle for Autumn?! No cinnamon, spicy, mulled wine like offering? I’m sorry! I had to include this candle as I’ve been burning it non-stop recently. Now I’d love this to be a Yankee Vanilla Cupcake candle but I just can’t bear to part with that much money for it (...yet) so instead I picked up this cheaper version of it in my local Dunelm Mill. The scent isn’t quite as strong but it smells like I’m constantly baking cupcakes so I’m happy!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into my favourite Autumn/Winter products!
