The festive season is officially upon us, and if you're a Christmas lover like I am, I'm sure you're extremely excited that in just 20 sleeps, it will be the big day. I haven't even begun to think about shopping yet, let alone start it, but with just a matter of weeks to go, the Christmas shopping rush is officially on, and the clock is ticking to find the perfect gifts for your family and loved ones.

It's 1st December which means one thing. Well, aside from the fact that the festive season has officially started and it's acceptable to now play Christmas songs on repeat, It's also monthly favourites time! I've been using all of the products I'm talking about today throughout November, and love all of them so much that I had to share them with you all. Included this month are some new makeup bag additions, an AMAZING dry shampoo, and also some skincare thrown in for good measure. As always, I'd love to hear what are your favourite products at the moment, and whether you have tried and loved/ hated any of the ones I'm featuring today.

Lypsyl* is a name that I've been familiar with for as long as I can remember. Yep, in those days before my friends and I were allowed to wear makeup, we would also carry a lipbalm around everywhere with us and take great delight in applying it whilst pretending it was a lipstick. I remember the original Lypsyl balm so clearly, in it's bright blue tube with white writing, and would get so excited whenever I got a new one.
Fast forward 20 years- Lypsyl have re branded, and have just launched an exciting range for AW16, which includes six new flavours alongside, of course, the original.

It's been a while since I added some new additions to my makeup bag. Although I'm constantly on the hunt for new 'hero' products that will make me look like a supermodel, I have a tendency to always revert back to my favourites. That being said, I'm also very fickle when it comes to cosmetics, and if I have an ugly day or see bad picture of myself whilst wearing one of said hero products, it'll go to the bottom of my makeup bag, and I'll be onto the next. I'm going through one of those phases at the moment and decided my makeup bag needed some newness and love, so headed to my nearest high street to have a spend up. I'm always very open about the fact that I love high end products, but likewise have a lot of time for budget beauty as well. There are so many amazing brands out there now, and gone are the days when you had to spend a small fortune to look good. For just over £40, I got 8 new products, including 3 palettes, a makeup brush, and an amazing matte lip product.

If you're a regular to My So Kohl'd Life, you'll know how I have a constant love/hair (mostly hate) relationship with my hair. After years of dabbling in various colours and styles, I've finally got the colour and cut nailed, but when it comes to styling it, well, let's just say I need all the help I can get. I'm the girl who struggles to put her hair in a ponytail half the time (HOW do people get that amazing messy finish without it looking, well, messy?) and am always complaining about how thin and lank my hair is. Needless to say, I am forever searching for products that will add lots of volume, and general oompf to my hair, whilst protecting it from heat damage and the elements. Step forward Sexy hair*. The name had me hooked before I'd even tried the product, after all, who doesn't want their hair to look sexy?? Today's post is a review of two of their best selling products, one which promises to offer 'big sexy hair,' and the other 'healthy sexy hair.'
What more could a gal want?

White teeth are something we all aspire to have. I personally always notice people's teeth when I first meet them, and because of that I've always been very over critical of my own. I had braces when I was younger to fix my wonky smile, and despite years of orthodontic work (I ended up having them twice in the end) I've never been completely happy and have always felt that they could be whiter. I've tried various whitening toothpastes and treatments over the years, but haven't ever really found one that gives me the long lasting results I desire, so am forever trying out different brands and products, in the hope of achieving my desired white smile.
Today I am talking about BlanX*, who offer some of the most popular, and affordable whitening toothpastes on the market. Their range starts at just £5.00, and they also offer products under their BlanX White Shock sub brand including LED light products and an innovative whitening formula. I've reviewed 2 of their best selling toothpastes- one is from the BlanX main range, and the other from the Blanx White Shock range.
