The autumnal weather has arrived and that means the autumnal beauty and skincare products have made their way to the dressing table rather than being hidden in the drawers. I love this time of year and have been loving some new and the trustee old beauty and skincare products and so today I thought I'd share with you the ones I’m most excited about!

L'Oreal Moisturising Gel
I was recommended this by EmmyWritesAbout when I asked on twitter for products that are good for dry skin and oh my god I love this. It's a gel consistency rather than a thick moisturiser but it makes my skin feel so good. My dry skin has pretty much vanished and my face looks glowing and healthy. I highly recommend trying it out. It's so affordable too.
I didn't cave into the hype when MAC Whirl was a big thing but I received it as a gift for my birthday last year and I LOVE whipping it out during the colder autumnal weather. The consistency is creamy and it applies so smoothly. I love the colour on me, it's a dark brown/nude and looks good whether I'm tanned or on the pale side!
Sleek Highlighter
I'm all about that dewy skin, even in the winter and I still love my trusty sleek highlighter which comes as part of the bronze, blush and highlight trio. This highlighter is really pigmented and a pearly white shade which looks great on your cheek bone! I really like it and a little goes a long way.
I recently attended an event at the Bodyshop in Leeds with my friend from work (who's best mate just so happens to be CAROLINE HIRONS!!!) and Caroline so kindly helped me pick out some of her favourite bodyshop products. One of the products she picked was the camomile cleansing oil and I was intrigued to try it out. I never usually use oils in my skincare routine however having dry skin, I've heard it's good to incorporate it so I gave it a go and I LOVE it. It makes my skin feel so smooth after using it and it's amazing how much more dirt and makeup is removed when using this in addition to my cleanser.
BodyShop Ethiopian Honey mask
I've tried a few of the Bodyshop masks before but had never thought to try the Ethiopian Honey mask. At the Bodyshop event I attended I was part of the mask demo and the lovely lady who was doing the presentation put the Ethiopian Honey mask on as I have dry skin with redness. It felt soo cooling on the skin and my skin felt smooth and soft. I tend to use this once a week during my Sunday evening pamper routine.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
If you've not heard about the Naked heat palette then where have you been? This is one of my all time favourite palettes. I absolutely love the colours in it and they're all so pigmented. I was apprehensive at first to use more bright and daring colours on my eyes but the colours look so nice complementing my blue eye colour. I would highly recommend the palette, you can see a full review here.
Rimmel 107 Lipstick
It's no secret that I love this lipstick during the autumn. It's the perfect berry shade and couldn't be more fitting for the winter months. I am not usually adventurous with my lip shades but I do get this one out every autumn and have repurchased it numerous times.  If you love a deep red lip, go grab one now - they're very affordable.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
This is my favourite trustee winter skincare must have. The 8 hour cream is a multipurpose product which I use on m lips, and dry skin. I don' think I could get through another winter without using this product. It's a saviour and although on the expensive side it's totally worth it. Check out my full review here.
