It’s been so long since I’ve written a Tag post. I really like them though as it’s a great way get you thinking about your beauty stash. I was tagged by the lovely Leanne over at Blather and Beauty to do this one – you can see her post here. For this tag you pick your top 10 makeup products and after a LOT of deliberation here’s what I’ve picked…
Well I think this week is the week of the overdue review! On Monday I spoke about the fab Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which I’ve had for yonks and today I bring you the Pixi Glow Tonic which I’ve had in my stash for aaages. Now if you’re a seasoned skincare pro you’ll have heard of this or probably own it. It’s a bit of a cult product thanks to Caroline Hirons skincare guru seal of approval.
I have had this product absolutely ages so I’m not sure why I haven’t reviewed it sooner. It might have to do with my large skincare stash, I forget what I own! I first discovered this when I had a Dermalogica facial many moons ago and the therapist recommended it as a good exfoliator for my sensitive skin.
Well if you’re going to buy me a present it will come as no shock that beauty products are probably the best choice. My friend Steph really hit the jackpot for my birthday as she bought me a selection of goodies from Makeup Revolution – yay! This palette is the one that got the most oohs and ahhhs from me when I opened it. I already own two Makeup Revolution palettes so I know how good they are. Here is a peek at the gorgeousness!
I was doing a bit of a clear out of my stash the other day and it made me realise how many products I own or have owned in the past from Elemis. It’s a brand that I really like and have had a lot of success with over the years. Elemis is a British Spa based brand. You will mainly find Elemis for sale in Spas although you can buy it in the likes of Debenhams and plenty of places online.
Oh it’s that time of year again when you snuggle up on the couch with the fire lit and some lovely candles burning. I don’t actually have a fire but I definitely do have candles! I’ve been a long time devotee of Yankee candles but I love to try out some home grown brands. I was at the Pro Beauty Show on Monday and came across the Celtic Candles stand. One sniff of the candles and I was hooked.
The Pro Beauty Show handily falls on the weekend of my birthday so it gives me a great excuse to treat myself a little bit! I got a bit carried away last year and bought a few too many nail polishes so I swore I wouldn’t buy as many this year. The show is held in the RDS and is mainly aimed at Beauty Salons and Therapists but I always gatecrash under the guise of blogging!
Happy Sunday everyone, hope you’re having a nice relaxing day! Raging I missed the Irish Blog Awards last night but hope anyone there had a great time. For a bit of light reading of a Sunday I’ll give you a quick run through of what I’ve been writing about, other blog posts I’ve enjoyed and any beauty bits I’ve bought!
I think Guinot is really under rated as a skincare brand. I think maybe because it’s been around so long that it’s gotten an old-fashioned vibe about it. It’s not hip or cool or down with the kids but it’s some really good skincare. It’s not a range I ever would have tried only my mam had some products knocking around that she hadn’t used so I “borrowed” them.
