Feel Unique and Body Shop Haul
Apologies for the very delayed post, I felt like I was on a roll but recently I've been working/studying/ill so that hasn't left me much time to put a post together.
But I'm back and feeling much better so I thought I'd share some of the things I've bought recently..
Usually on the run up to payday I find myself trawling through beauty and fashion websites sizing up what I'm going to purchase when my money comes in at midnight every Friday. A couple of weeks ago I suddenly realised that I hadn't purchased anything from the Tanya Burr range (sacrilege I know).
So I purchased a nail varnish in the shade 'Mischief Managed', and two lipglosses; 'Picnic in the Park' and 'Vampire Kiss'
My terrible nail painting skills aside, the Mischief Managed shade is a gorgeous summer red colour and best of all it took about a week before I started to notice any obvious chipping.
I chose 'Vampire Kiss' because I love red lip colours of all kinds, I've found it to be very similar to my YSL lip lacquer in shade 10. I also got 'Picnic in the Park' because it looked so lovely in Tanya Burrs photos and I wanted something a bit more neutral for every day wear. The formula of the glosses is brilliant, they're very moisturising and have great staying power.
I'm still on my mission to improve my skin care so I purchased some more products to add to my collection...
Once again late on the bandwagon with this one but I've heard so much about the wonders of Rosehip oil I couldn't not pick up this serum. And it was so cheap, I think it was only around £13. I won't bore you too much with the science but according to Trilogy studies have shown their Rosehip oil visibly improves the appearance of scars (41%), stretch marks (43%) and fine lines and wrinkles (23%). These aren't generally problems I am facing at present however I'm a great believer in that prevention is better than cure, and these properties aside Rosehip oil also helps to moisturise, nourish and soften the skin.
I've been using it by applying 3 drops to my face every morning and It has been leaving my skin feeling amazingly soft.
And last but not least I went into body shop as I was enticed by the promise of amazing offers in the window, and of course they did not disappoint.
What should have been about £24, this was actually £16 *(£14 with my loyalty card). The vitamin E overnight serum in oil is one of the newer products in the range. It claims to be 8 hours beauty sleep for your skin by replenishing and recharging the skin helping it to look more radiant in the mornings. Although I've only been using this a couple of weeks I can really notice the difference in my skin. Not only does it feel so soft but It looks much healthier recently.
The Vitamin E sink in moisture mask if I'm not wrong is a best seller at the body shop. I've used it a couple of times already and I love it. I apply a layer to my skin after removing all my make up and literally let it all sink in. It is unbelievably hydrating and the effects are really long lasting so It's probably going to last me ages which is always good.
So that's everything from my haul, I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've bought. Have you purchased and used any of these products? If so what did you think? I love reading and responding to all your comments so please drop me one below.
