Hope you're all keeping well? I've been a busy bee and went on a rather indulgent shopping trip today to celebrate Daniel's first class hons in Mechanical Engineering, but now I'm happy to be sat down enjoying a glass of champagne with Daniel and my family whilst enjoying another great win for Wales in the Euros! I'm here with a sneak peek of my recent monster skincare & beauty haul, which was a total moment of indulgence. I'm hugely into my skincare and of course beauty, and I couldn't wait any longer to share my purchases with you lovelies. However, I will be doing more in-depth reviews on a lot of the products in this post, so keep checking back if you're interested to see how I get along. I hope you enjoy this Post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below!
So what exactly Did I purchase?
Cult Beauty are quite possibly the biggest enablers ever!! Their campaigns are always on point, super informative and more importantly their product selection is just out of this world. I did consider un-subscribing from their e-mails for a while just to stop the temptation, but they are just too good to resist #GuiltyPleasure. As most of you know I'm a complete skincare Junkie and after speaking with a Cult Beauty specialist, along with reading an amazing post from Caroline Hirons I decided that I needed some Kyrpis in my life! Now I'm not going to go all out in this post, as it totally needs one of it's own, but the two products I purchased were Moonlight Catalyst & Beauty Elixir 1000 Roses. I'm already blown away. I also purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer which I've wanted for the longest time! The next day after making my order ABH released their new palettes on CB, so I will be checking them out soon! I don't think the eye palette for me, but the glow kit is 100% up my street. Not only did I get three amazing products, but I also qualified for the super amazing Summer Cult Beauty Goody Bag worth over £170!! Let me know if you would like to see a separate review on the Goody Bag?
I've been meaning to re-purchase the Clarins Water Comfort One Step Peach Cleanser for ages, as I've already got through two bottles of it. However, at £23 (Currently £18.45) it's pretty expensive for a cleansing water, so sometimes I just make do with other products I have waiting around to be used up. However, seeing as I was #FeelingSpendy I decided to treat myself to this fantastic product, which I either use alone in the morning, or follow it up with my Oskia Renaissance Gel for a more thorough morning cleanse. I obviously couldn't leave Essential without having a little browse around! I came across Vichy and their new masks, which all looked amazing (I have a thing for face masks) However, I went with the Quenching Mineral Mask, which only needs to be left on for 5 minutes to inject serious hydration to the skin. I haven't actually got anything that similar in my collection, so I'm excited to use this.
Anyone who knows me well, or reads my blog will know skincare is a big deal for me for many reasons. I've always been lucky to have good skin, but more than anything I love having an in depth routine, as it really helps to relax and ease my anxiety. I also love trying new products and of course keeping my skin in tip top condition, which gives me so much more confidence than make-up these days. Anyhoo, I'm quite into Clinique at the moment, so I decided to purchase their Moisture Surge Gift set, as I already use the Moisture Surge Thirst Relief Treatment and love it! I also purchased their NEW online exclusive Sun-kissed Face Jelee Complexion Multitasker, which I'm hoping will be fab to mix in with moisturisers, foundations and anything else I can use it for! I also got a free men's skincare set, which I have given to Daniel. I'm desperately trying to get him into skincare, as I can't bare to see him wash his face with soap anymore!
I hope you've enjoyed this post my lovelies and I will be back soon with more in-depth reviews! Please let me know if there are any specific products you would like to know about?
Lots of Love
