I know it’s not quite the end of May yet, but I wanted to post thing before I had my surgery (which is in less than 12 hours!!), as I’m not sure how able I was going to be to take photos etc. So here is my early May 2017 favourites!
MARIO BADESCU DRYING LOTION AND ROSEWATER FACIAL SPRAY
First I thought I’d start this with my one true love. Both of these products have honestly changed my skin in so many ways. The drying lotion is something I had seen before, but never plucked up the courage to buy, and can I say how glad I am that I did. I pop a q-tip into the pink solution, and pop it on to any spots, old or new. In the morning, they’ve completely disappeared, or at the very least, faded so much that you can hardly seem them. Recommended this to anyone.
The facial spray was something that I purchased alongside with the drying lotion, as it was advertised very well. I honestly didn’t think I would like this that much. It has such a cooling effect on this, that I’m tempted to bring it into work with me for when its a busy shift! I also read how people have used this as a makeup primer and a setting spray, which I cannot wait to try out.
PIXI GLOW TONIC EXFOLIATING TONER
Again, this is something which is new to me. My mum had also brought this, and hadn’t liked it that much, so ended up sending it back. If I had heard this first, I most likely wouldn’t have ended up buying it. I use this morning and night, and usually look forward to using a face scrub. I now find myself not looking forward to my scrub that much, as this seems to have taken all of that dry, dead skin off! Love it, love it, love it!
BENEFIT THE POREFESSIONAL FACE PRIMER
I recently searched eBay to find a cheaper version of this. After coming across many fakes, and actually buying a few, I realised how the price is definitely worth it. This stuff makes my skin look and feel amazing. I suffer from oily skin, and tend to find other primers look amazing for about 10 minutes, and then its back to its usual oily self. This does not do that. My face stays so matte all day and doesn’t cause any breakouts. I’m nearly out of this, so definitely will need to repurchase soon!
L’OREAL PARIS MISS BABY ROLL MASCARA
I don’t think I’ll ever find the ‘perfect’ mascara. But this is definitely up there. This stuff literally makes my eyes look like I have false eyelashes on, and for someone who’s never been good at applying them, I’ll take whatever I can to give the same effect. Now, I do have my eyelashes permed (upcoming post on that soon), so I’m not sure what they would look like on un-permed lashes, but this is definitely my new go-to mascara.
THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR BY SHARI LAPENA
The couple next door is about a husband and wife, Anne and Marco, who join their next-door neighbours for dinner over their house, but they’re told they’re not allowed to bring their new-born baby. When they arrive home, their baby has disappeared.
This book honestly had me gripped for so long. I cannot stop talking about it. Every chapter had a new twist to add. If you haven’t read this yet, you’re 100% missing out.
