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.
People always laugh at my bathroom with the volume of products lying around. I don’t have the heart to tell them that it’s only scratching the surface and I have boxes of stuff dotted around the apartment! I probably need help! Following on from my favourite skincare products last week here are my top picks for bodycare and haircare products that were new to me in 2015.
The great thing about being a beauty blogger is that it’s pretty obvious what my gift of choice would be! This is not something which has gone unnoticed with my loved ones so generally at least half my gifts are beauty related. I’m also really greedy and tend to buy at least one or two things in the January sales. So I thought I’d give you a peek at the lovely beauty gifts I got for Christmas as well as the few bits I couldn’t resist in the sales!
I’ve been looking back over the year 2015 and I’ve been thinking about some of my beauty highlights. Over the next week or so I’ll bring you my favourites in bodycare, skincare and makeup. I was mostly skincare obsessed in 2015 so I’m going to start there. Here are my favourite products that were new to me in 2015.
Happy New Year everyone!! I know it’s not Christmas any more but I just think it’s really important that I show you how AMAZING this advent calendar was! Before Christmas I wrote a post here about my favourite of the beauty advent calendars for 2015. Among my picks were the rumours of the Marks and Spencer Beauty Advent calendar, I couldn’t get much details on this at the time but it launched in Ireland and sold out within a few hours.
