March Monthly Favourites

27 Mar

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a favorites post so I thought I show you the products that I’ve been using most through March.  I decided to do something a little different with the pictures rather just having  a white background, and I’d love to know what you prefer 🙂

First up is Clarins Daily Energizer Cream – I’ve been using this everyday since I bough it and it is definitely my favourite moisturiser at the moment and I really don’t see myself trying a new for quite a while.  I review it in full here.

Kate Moss Lipstick in 02 – I’ve been a big fan of bright lips recently and this has been my favourite bright lipstick this month.  It’s a gorgeous bright pink which looks amazing for Spring/Summer and I can see it being used quite a bit in the upcoming months.  If you fancy seeing some swatches of it click here.

Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation – I’ve been using this everyday since I got it and it’s the best matte foundation that I’ve tried.  I don’t want to go in to too much detail about it as I’m planning on doing a full review of it soon 🙂

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer – I love this primer and use it almost everyday.  It’s really light weight, helps to minimize pore and makes sure your make-up stays put all day.  It could be the perfect primer.

Models Co Lip Pencil – I got this free with a magazine (think it might have been Glamour?) and I’ve been using quite a bit.  It’s got a little sharpner in the lid meaning that you can sharpen it whenever you need to.  It’s nude in colour meaning that it goes with any lipstick.  (If you want a full review of it, just let me know).

 

So that’s my March favourites!  I hope that you liked them and I would love to know what you think of the photos 🙂  Do you prefer just plain white or would you rather see something like this?

 

 

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream Review

23 Mar

Life has kind of taken over recently meaning that I’ve had less time to blog, and although I promised in my last post to write another sooner than this,  found that it just seemed rushed. And I’d much rather publish a post which I feel that you would appreciate as I know I’m not a fan of reading post which seem to be quickly flung together in the need to let people know that your still writing your blog.  I’m really hoping that this time away from the blogging world (I haven’t been reading any blogs lately) will mean that hopefully I’ll have some new ideas for post too.  Anyway on with what I really want to talk to you about; Clarins Daily Energizer Cream.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream

I’d been given a sample of this at one of the counters and loved it so much that I went back and bought the full sized tub.  It feels a little bit thick and lovely and creamy.   I think that this would be best for dry/combination skin, and if you have oily skin you maybe better suited to the cream-gel formula. It comes in a really nice glass tub, which seems quite sturdy, but I haven’t dropped it yet so I’m not sure how it copes with this.  Like all the others in the daily energizers range the packaging is orange which I feel is a nice colour and helps you feel a little more awake in the morning.

The Daily Enegrizers range is specially developed for skin in its 20’s.  It aims to make skin appear bright and healthy while minimizing minor imperfections.  Other products in the range include, a cleansing gel, wake-up booster and the cream-gel moisturizer.

I really love this product and have been using it with the cleansing gel and I feel like it has improved the appearance of my skin.  I find that the moisturizer keeps my skin feeling nice and soft and helps to hydrate any part which are a little dry.

I definitely recommend this and it can be bought for £21.00 at any Clarins counter or from their website.

Have you tried any of the Clarins Daily Energizers range?  Let me know what you thought of it 🙂

Summer Essentials (5) – Skincare

24 Jun

Sorry this post is a little late I’ve been so busy the past few days and haven’t had a chance to write it.  Anyway this is the second last in the Summer Essentials series which will focus on skincare.  I’ll admit that I’m not a huge skincare person and tend to keep to the same products but I am aiming to branch out a little more.  For me the main thing is to make sure that skin is nice and clean and moisturized.

  • Nivea Daily Essentials  Exfoliating Scrub – I uses this scrub every three to four days just to exfoliate my skin.  I find that it’s really good and prevents my skin having any dry patches.
  • Nivea Express Hydration Primer – This is my go to moisturizer at the moment.  I do use it as a primer I also just like to use it as a moisturizer on days I’m not wearing any makeup.  I like this because it’s feels light and absorbs into the skin quickly.  You can see my full review here.
  • Sugar Stripease – Although not really a skincare item, I prefer to wax especially in summer.  This is even gentle enough to use on eyebrows 🙂  I find that it isn’t as harsh on skin as regular wax and I don’t have anywhere near as many red dots/redness in general.  You can see my full review here.
  • Clarins Daily Energizing Cleansing Gel – This has been my go to cleansing gel for quite a while now ever since I was given a sample of it to try from the Clarins counter.  I feel that this is good for cleaning skin and it doesn’t go overly soapy which is nice.  I find that you only need a little each time and therefore it last for quite a while.
  • Clarins Daily Energizer Wake Up Booster – I currently only have a sample size of this but I will definitely be investing in a full sized on once this is finished.  This helps make skin look more radiant while having toning effects.  I usually apply this before putting on my moisturizer.
  • The Body Shop Mango Body Butter – I can’t believe that I forgot to include this in the picture put it just popped into my head when I was writing the post.  This was my first Body Shop Body Butter but I’m sure it won’t be my last.  Not only does it smell amazing it really moisturizes the skin.  This comes in different scents so I’m sure there is one for everyone.

So that’s my Summer Essentials for skincare, what do you think and what are your summer essentials for skincare? 🙂
