Tomorrow I’m off to France with two of my best blogging babes – Hayley and Katie – and since we’re all beauty bloggers we’re obviously going to be taking a trip to Sephora. After browsing for hours on the French website a week or two ago, I’ve realised that not a lot of it is any cheaper that getting it here, but a few bits have caught my eye. Much of what I want to try out are the Sephora own-brand products, but there are a couple of other products thrown into the mix too.
I always catch the news about the Estée Lauder company beauty bags far too late. They’re sold out and the bargains have been picked up before I even hear a whisper of them. But not this time, oh no! This time I spotted it early on and managed to grab a beauty bargain. The most recent beauty bag was the Estée Lauder Beautiful Escape, containing £73 worth of products from a variety of Estée Lauder owned brands for just £25!
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.
Last year, the beauty world was hit by the L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks. I feel like this was the first time multi-masking really hit the mass market and it took me ages to get hold of the original three masks. They were sold out everywhere! L’Oreal have now released another two masks to add to the range which haven’t had as much hype as the original three, but I still want to talk about them. Which masks are for your specific skin type? Which masks will do what you want from a face mask? I’m about to break it all down for you and essentially give you the hard sell as I really rate these face masks.
It’s been less than a month since I last shared a haul from The Body Shop, but as I mentioned last time, I’m pretty obsessed with their products at the moment. 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).
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.
