Benefit Stay Don’t Stray
I’m not really a primer fan in general. I’m not keen on strong silicone textures and some primers are just do nothing for me – I’m looking at you MAC Prep and Prime Primer. So I always approach a primer with a sceptical look on my face. I got a dinky pot of this Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eye primer in a minis set last Christmas but it had been lingering around my stash unused. I’ve recently been facing some serious undereye darkness and was finding my concealer wasn’t getting me through the day, so I decided I’d give this a try.
Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro
Well it must be at least a few weeks since I’ve mentioned Makeup Revolution, shock horror! I went to Superdrug in Tallaght recently and was delighted to see they had a brand new Makeup Revolution stand, I was far too excited about this and had to try and restrain myself from jumping up and down at it. Unfortunately the popularity of the brand has started to spread and a good few products were sold out but I managed to find a few that piqued my interest.
Ziaja Micellar Waters
If you haven’t heard of polish brand Ziaja you are really missing out. They do some great value skincare. The packaging isn’t always the fanciest but the contents inside really deliver what they promise. As we all know micellar waters are the new cleanser du jour. I like to use micellar water as a pre-cleanse before I get at my skin with a balm/oil using water and a flannel.
Last week I shared my recent beauty box purchase from Feel Unique here. The box contained four cult skincare products that I’ve wanted to try out for a while. The one I was looking forward to the most is the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. This has been creating a lot of buzz since it launched last year.
A few weeks ago I was invited to a lovely Sleek Makeup event. Sleek is not a new brand here but it’s one that’s growing and expanding and it was great to get the opportunity to play with the makeup and check out all the new releases. I was lucky enought to leave the event with a little goody bag of treats and one of them was this I-Divine Au Naturel Palette. I already own and love the Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special Palette especially the Organza shade which is pretty much all gone, so I was delighted to have another to play with.
I was recently sent this Dove Deeply Nourishing body wash to review. I’ve used Dove deodorant for years, there’s something familiar about the Dove scent to me, it just feels really fresh. I have to admit I don’t put a huge amount of thought into the body wash I use. I usually get loads of that type of thing for Christmas – looking at you Soap and Glory – and I use them up throughout the year. But I was intrigued by the claims of this one so thought I’d give it a whirl.
Feel Unique Radiant Skin Beauty Box
Well I’ve been trying my best not to spend any money but the weak willed beauty blogger that I am, that plan didn’t last too long. I was browsing Facebook and saw this beauty box pop up on my timeline. Feelunique do a range of beauty boxes that usually offer great value. This Radiant Skin box contains four classic Skincare products that I’ve been excited to try for a while, so of course I caved and swiftly added it to my basket. Here’s what’s in it…
