Usually I’m the source of cool beauty finds in the family but I was in my Mams bathroom recently and this little pot from L’Occitane (never pronounce that correctly!) was sitting on the ledge. Not one to resist a new beauty product I had to try it out. I’m a big fan of L’Occitane hand creams so was expecting good things!
It’s been a while since I’ve brought you some of my latest favourite products. Some of these are brand new to me and some have been knocking around in my stash to be discovered again.The one benefit of moving recently was I found many products I had completely forgotten about!
I have wanted to try this for aaagggees. I had tried a few cheaper Beauty Blender dupes and wasn’t massively impressed but I couldn’t ignore the glowing reviews of my fellow beauty bloggers. My mam kindly brought me this back from her hols and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Apologies that it doesn’t look the best above I broke the blogger cardinal rule and didn’t take photos of it before I used it and you can read about my cleansing woes below!
I’d like to start by apologising for my lack of posts over the last few weeks. I had to move out of my lovely apartment and things have been a bit all over the place. Moving is definitely not a fun experience! I find it very hard to blog when I’m stressed but fortunately things have calmed down a bit and my blogging mojo is slowly arriving back. So I thought I’d start back by giving you a review of the famous Alpha H Liquid Gold…
I’ve been writing more empties posts than ever over the last year, I’m not sure what this says about my cosmetic use but it’s clearly on the rise. The only good thing about empties is it can be an excuse to shop for replacements but that doesn’t help when you’re stoney broke! Here are the latest lot of products that are headed for my bin…
It’s been a few years since I bought a product from Collection (or Collection 2000 as it will be forever known to me!) but their current Pro Palette range is looking pretty good. It’s a new range of eye and face palettes at bargain prices. I was spending the last of a voucher and picked up this little blush palette to get as close to my voucher total as possible!
In 2015 I became truly obsessed with skincare and with cleansers in particular! I’ve now about 10 regularly on the go so I thought I’d share these with you and some speedy reviews. I have three main types of cleanser on the go, balms, creams and gels. I did have one pure oil cleanser in the mix but sadly that is all gone and I’m on the hunt for a new one – am eyeing up the new Elemis one. I’ve divided the speed reviews by the type of cleanser below. Where I’ve done a full review of the cleanser the link is in the name.
I tend not to go on too much about products I don’t like as I can’t really recommend them and what doesn’t work for me may well work for someone else. But I’ve been posting my favourite products of 2015 so I thought it only fair that I balance this a bit with a few products that I didn’t love or just didn’t work for me in 2015!
It’s rare that I purchase a product based on one of those tiny sachet samples that you get but this is one of them! I was going away for a night and took a small sample of this cleanser with me as I thought it’d do for a night away.
