It might be a little bit early for a favourites post but I thought it was time as I’ve been loving all of these products for the past few weeks. There’s a mix of beauty, skincare, fashion and a tea in here, all perfect for the springtime.
First up are the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Cleansing Wipes. These are new in the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Range and they’re the perfect morning pick me up for a quick cleanse or as the first step in my evening skincare routine to take off all my gunky makeup before going in with a cleansing gel or balm. Next and lastly in skincare is an eye cream. My love for avocados is growing by the day so it was only a matter of time until I picked up the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. I feel like my skin is definitely getting more dry in texture as I’m getting older and especially the skin around my eyes can feel like it needs some TLC so this is perfect as it’s super hydrating.
Onto makeup now and I’ve had a small revamp. Since dying my hair I felt like my current makeup wasn’t really working for me and I didn’t really know what colours to be wearing. I had a consultation at John Lewis in Nottingham and ended up picking up the Bobbi Brown Blusher in Coral Sugar. It’s a much pinker colour than I was used to but I really like it on my skin and it goes much better with my new hair colour.
I’ve also taken the plunge into Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics and absolutely love them already. I picked up the Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher Conceal & Treat Stick and it’s just as fab as the YSL Touche Eclat. I also picked up a couple of samples of the Magic Foundation and I’m definitely going to be picking this up come payday, it’s just beautiful and really sat well on my skin and lasted like nothing else I’ve ever tried. Along the same complexion-related lines I bought the Clarins Instant Concealer in 01 and it’s a really great coverage concealer when used with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This thing really is a miracle. I’ve never tried a beautyblender or this Real Techniques sponge before, I just wasn’t convinced that they’d really do anything as I’ve tried normal makeup sponges in the past and obviously, they were useless. I can’t get over how great this blends make-up in. I’m a complete convert!
A little bit of lifestyle in here too this month, I’ve been trying out the Teami Relax Blend Tea as an alternative to my usual brew before bed and I’ve been really liking it. It tastes really nice, isn’t too herbally and is great for me as I can’t stand green tea but like to have a hot drink in the evening. You can grab 10% off Teami with my code FRIDAY10 if you fancy giving that a go like I did.
Finally, a fashion piece to round things up. I’ve been absolutely living in this Boohoo Nap Queen Sweatshirt, it’s perfect for chilling at home or warming up in at the gym. This is from their Petite range so I sized up and it’s pretty perfect!
