A FEW NEW BEAUTY BITS


Over the past few months, I have really been that interested in purchasing new items on the beauty front, I've definitely been more into fashion and that's what I've been focussing on. Despite this, there are always a few new beauty bits that I need, whether it be repurchases or just new products to try, especially since my blog is still predominantly beauty related. 

I'm such a fan of the Deceim brand, particularly after having tried one of their products under the Niod brand. I recently read about another brand under Deciem called The Ordinary, in which it was praised for producing good quality products at such an affordable price. During one of my ASOS browses, I noticed that they were a stockist for The Ordinary and before I knew it, I had snapped up a handful of products. First up is the Hyaluronic Acid serum which I thought would be perfect for my dehydrated skin. As I also have blemishes, I picked up the Salicylic Acid solution which is supposed to be good at targeting blemishes. I thought I would pick up one of their High Spreadability Fluid Primer to see how well it would fair as a base for my makeup. Last but not least from The Ordinary is the Vitamin C Suspension is a another serum which is meant to help to brighten and protect the skin.

Boots had the best offer I've ever seen when it comes to Real Techniques makeup brushes - Buy one get one free! I was in such shock that I just picked up another Expert Face Brush as well as the Expert Eye Brush, which I had never seen before, but it will be perfect for concealer, either to apply concealer or set it with a powder. 

It's no secret that Pixi is one of my favourite skincare brands, and I been absolutely obsessed with the Rose Oil Blend. It's so nice applying this to my skin in the morning and evening and it feels like a real treat every time I use it. I used to have such bad connotations with face oils, but this one definitely exceeded my expectations and I've repurchased it two or three times already as it's an absolutely staple in my skincare routine. 

L'Oreal have released so many new facial cleansers recently, so I thought I would buy a couple of them and give them a go. Since I already have the Detox Face Mask, I picked up the corresponding Detox Face Wash to see if by using a couple products from the same range in conjunction with each other will get the results they claim. The other cleanser that I picked up from L'Oreal is the Fine Flowers Cleansing Wash as I wanted to try another cleanser from a different range within L'Oreal.

There were a few repurchases I had to make,the first was my beloved E45 Cream. I've tried so many moisturisers over the years and this is the only one that has really helped with my dry skin. It's not the most glamorous or luxurious product, but it works. Another repurchase I made was of Sudocrem, mainly due to the fact that it was in a cute little tube and I thought it would be great for travelling with. I also repurchased the Nivea Micellar Wipes which are my absolute favourite makeup wipes as they're so good at removing makeup gently and quickly. The last repurchase I made was the John Freida Frizz Ease Hair Serum which I first used when I was on holiday in Malia last year and despite all the sea water and chlorine that went in my hair, it helped keeping my hair soft and somewhat tamed and presentable.
