Beauty Haul! Ft. Fragrance Direct, The Body Shop & Boots

Yesterday was my first pay day in almost a year and a half! I might only be working part time, but seeing some money actually going into my bank account was incredibly exciting so I decided to go do some shopping. Here’s what I got:

Fragrance Direct

Fragrance Direct is an online shop, which sells a wide range of beauty products at discounted rates. Over the weekend, they had a free shipping offer which I took advantage of. Standard shipping is meant to take 5-7 working days and I got mine in 4. Very impressed. And everything was well packaged too, so it’s definitely worth checking them out. Here’s the deets:

What are your French beauty heroes?

Today my parents booked ferries to go visit my grandparents in France and my mum has offered to do some shopping for me whilst she’s there. Instantly my mind started racing, trying to think of French make up and skin care brands!

Of course, Bioderma, Clarins and the like have all crossed my mind and the thought of getting up to 25% reduced prices on some products is incredibly exciting and I kind of don’t know where to start!

So I want to know, what are YOUR French beauty heroes and make up must haves? Let me know in the comments and I’ll take look into them whilst I create my list. I know I’ve got a while before they go but man I’m excited at the prospect!

E.L.F. Haul Review – Part 1

Earlier this month, I went on a shopping spree on the E.L.F. website, taking advantage of the 50% off and free shipping. I got a total of 12 products for just over £20, which is such a bargain. I’ve now tried everything out thoroughly and so its time to review them. As there’s quite a lot, I’ve decided to split this into two posts so its easier to digest.

This part will focus on face products – the foundation, face powder, brushes and blusher that I bought – and the second will talk about everything else – the eye products, lip products and nail varnish. All the prices on the post are the RRP as shown on the E.L.F. website.

The Drugstore Favourites Tag!

Drugstore Favourites

So guys, I’ve been tagged by Glam Jar to do a drugstore favourites post. I personally love to shop at places like Boots, because of the variety of things on offer with a range of brands which go from cheap and cheerful to high end in the price range. Although I tend to steer clear of actually buying things in the high end price bracket because I find it hard to justify spending so much money on one item. In fact, out of all the make up I currently own, only two items would be classed as premium products…

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

As the name says, this is a cleansing water. I’m sure all of you have seen the hype around micellar waters over the past few months, which all started when Bioderma became more easily available here in the UK. Since then, other brands have been coming out with their own versions and I got curious so decided to give one a try.
