Small Drugstore Palette Declutter, Summer 2017

Small Drugstore Palette Declutter | Essential Twenty

A short but sweet declutter post, mainly because there are only two reasons I’m getting rid of these: either they’re old or the pigmentation isn’t there. Whatever the reason, I don’t use the eyeshadow quads (and mini palettes of similar sizes) at all anymore so I’m saying goodbye to them.

An Act Of Kindness | Essential Twenty

Just over a month ago, an invite landed in my inbox to attend the London preview of An Act Of Kindness*. It was due to hit the Edinburgh Fringe a couple of weeks later, but due to being on holiday I was unable to make it.

Last year, the beauty world was hit by the L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks.

When they were offering 30% off, a few free gifts when you spent over £25, and I had two £5 reward vouchers to use, I was game to treat myself to some new products (and some repeat favourites).

Dermalogica Precleanse

Dermalogica Precleanse | Essential Twenty

I’ve mentioned on a number of occasions that I’m definitely a balm and oil cleanser girl over cream cleansers, and over the past few months I’ve found a firm favourite. On evenings that I’ve forgotten to take my makeup off with micellar water before getting to the bathroom, I’ve been using the Dermalogica Precleanse*, an oil cleanser perfect to removing the majority of makeup before a deeper cleanse.
