Why, oh why, do all of my products seem to run out at the same time, resulting in an expensive receipt and a trip to the shops? Whoops. Oh and maybe a cheeky purchase here and there!
The Skincare Section
My skincare tends to last me a very long time but when it runs out I slightly dread having to go and get more, I either have to pick new things but this time I am very happy with the brand I use. Una Brennan can be purchased from Boots and is affordable. It's not as affordable as L'Oreal or Garnier, but it's definitely worth the money. The products I needed to replace were the Vitamin C+ Glow Boost Skin Serum (What a mouthful!) I have previously mentioned this in a previous blog post and I was very keen to repurchase as soon as possible. It claims to help to brighten the skin whilst also restoring the skins even appearance.
I had previously used the Vitamin C+ Moisturiser, but felt I wanted to try something else in the range. The Rose Hydrate Radiance Day Cream claimed to moisture and protect for even the most sensitive skin. I have quite sensitive skin so I though this would be perfect for me. Also, this particular part of the range had a 3rd off, which definitely made my decision easier!I also found in the same range the Rose Hydrate Peaceful Skin Night Cream that helps to rejuvenate and protect the skin. This also was on offer so it made the price worthwhile. The cream is a lot thicker and nourishing; definitely something I feel I need overnight.
The Make Up Section
Recently I have been in a bit of a make up funk. In particular my foundation and mascara has not been performing as well as I like them to. My eyelashes are not fluttery and I love a good fluttery eyelash and my foundation looks patchy and no one loves the patchy foundation look.
To combat this I decided to invest in a few new products, the first is my ever trusty MAC Studio Fix Powder – I have over the past year raved about this powder. I used to swear by it but I did recently change to see if it would affect my make up, after only a few months I have reverted back!
The second two are both from Too Faced; I cannot say I have ever used any products from Too Faced so I was excited with my purchases. The first is the Hangover Primer; through extensive research I found this to be the best primer to purchase. It claims to be hydrating and also brightening, and any way I could get moisture into my face I was happy! I also picked up the Better Than Sex Mascara in hopes it would help my lashes.
