Mini Beauty Haul

I feel a bit out of practice sat here writing this post, and that’s because it really has been a while since I’ve had time to focus on my blog. These past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind for me as you know I started a new job in August and ever since haven’t felt as though I’ve stopped. Don’t get me wrong I am enjoying my new job and all it has to entail but unfortunately my blog has suffered somewhat severely because of it. I can safely say I have a whole new respect for those people who hold down a full time job and still dedicate the time to their blog, they really are saints! I am hoping though that now I have settled into my hours I will be able to spend a little more time writing and keeping you all up to date what I have been up to!

Last weekend my sister and I popped out for a bit of retail therapy and I managed to pick up a few new beauty bits which I’d like to share with you all! I have been using a few of them for the past two weeks so I can give a good review of how they have worked for me!

Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser –  I have delved into the world of hot cloth cleansers before with Liz Earle a few years ago and my skin reacted so badly to it it really put me off trying another but I love the feeling of your skin after using a hot cloth cleanser and this one is a beaut.  This Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser is one of Superdrug’s own brand products (£3.32) and before buying it I did my research on a few blogs and found that it had been successful with sensitive skin which is a huge bonus for me as well as doing wonders for your skin at a great price…amazing right! You do get a muslin cloth with your cleanser but it is a little rough so I used my previous Liz Earle ones which are much softer but if you suffer from sensitive skin then this could be the product for you!

Simply Sensitive Toner Again another own brand product but this time it is from Boots. Looking for products which cater to my sensitive skin has been a high priority recently and I am so glad I picked this up on a whim. I usually use the Simple toner but I can sometimes find it is quite drying and leaves your skin feeling uncomfortably tight where as this toner is refreshing and I can certainly see a difference since using it. I have found my skin to be much more radiant and soft so big thumbs up from me, as well as an amazing price of £2.69…bargain.

Simply Sensitive Deep Hydrating Mask – Normally the words deep hydrating scare the life out of me because if anything within an inch of being too rich touches my skin I am bound to have a reaction to it. But I was feeling quite brave the day I bought this and thought I would give it a go because it does say it is for sensitive skin after all so I put it to the test. It is sort of like a hot cloth cleanser in the way you have to apply the product to a dry face then wipe away after 3 minutes and I definitely found that my skin was softer and more evenly toned if that makes sense. This was £2.99 and I think it will come in handy during the cold winter months when my skin will be feeling a little sorry for itself and in need of a pick me up.

Rimmel Pro Nail Varnish Blue Vogue – I love a good nail varnish and Barry M are usually my go to brand but I picked this up from the poundshop and thought that it was a good deal. I haven’t got a dark blue in my collection and I thought for the autumn winter it would be quite a nice shade and a good alternative to wearing black. It is just the same as the other rimmel pro varnishes as it has a large spade type brush which allows you to sweep on the colour in one stroke making it even more easy to paint your nails!

Impulse Spray True Love – Again this item was from the poundshop and it is my favourite scent from Impulse, my sister even commented saying how  nice it smelt so it’s a winner all round. I throw this in my handbag for emergency spritzes at work when I don’t want to haul my huge glass Paco Rabanne bottle around. I think it would also be great for after the gym or even just to ensure your always smelling fresh as a daisy!

Primark Pink Powder Brush – I snapped this up in Primark for a pound and I use it just to throw in my bag to apply my setting powder instead of damaging my real techniques powder brush. It isn’t amazing but for on a night out or for an on the go sweep it does it’s job well!
