Just lately I have really been using products up. Both skincare and makeup. Being the skincare lover that I am, imagine my horror the other day, when I came to the end of all cleansing oils! Ahh, I was stuck and knew then it was time to invest in a few new products. Cue Cult Beauty!
I had been resisting shopping for a while, however needs must and I fancied trying some completely new products. It seems a long time ago that I shared a haul with you on my page, so it’s about time for you to see what I stocked up on.
Cleansers were top of my list. I had seen the brand Farmacy all over Cult Beauty but had never tried anything from their range. Clear Bloom is packed with a patented Echinacea GreenEnvy Complex, which firms skin and protects against pollution. Safflower and Sunflower oils remove makeup and nourish the skin. As with many cleansers, it’s recommended to massage into dry skin and then introduce water to form a milky cleanser. I cannot wait to get started!
Zelens Z Pure is something of an impulse buy. I have seen this brand plastered all over YouTube among some of my favourite bloggers. Another cleanser designed to use on dry skin, add water and massage in, it’s said to leave skin ‘clear, plump and glowing’. I have high hopes and will report back on both once they have had a proper road test.
Pixi sell amazing mists and after only a couple of uses their Vitamin Wake Up Mist is becoming a firm favourite. Zingy and refreshing, this orange blossom and citrus scented spritz is just what the Doctor ordered first thing in the morning. It feels slightly on the oily side but a couple of sprays soak quickly into the skin to leave a lovely fresh base ready for makeup. Hooked! The perfect treat for tired skin.
I snapped up Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, more out of intrigue than anything else. Charlotte claims it’s an expert facial in just 15 minutes. It’s a dry formula, however the cocktail of floral extracts, oils, peptides and vitamins are meant to offer a much needed moisture hit. Instant Magic claims to tighten, lift and smooth skin. The results sound amazing, it was something I just had to try for myself. Expensive at £18, you are meant to be able to re-use this mask up to 3 times. The Tilbury team claim it’s the key to ‘HD ready skin’. Only time will tell!
After a mass makeup cull, it became apparent I was seriously lacking in the eyeshadow department. Not an everyday eyeshadow wearer, I was still keen to have a palette which offers something more than just matte browns and neutral tones. Huda Beauty’s Textured Shadows Palette is ‘the’ palette to own offering a choice of matte, satin and foil effects in a selection of copper, claret, bronze and rose gold tones. Being a makeup junkie, I was please to add this to my collection and am keen to see what it can do. I am quite sure I will need to practise a little more to master certain looks!
I just love adding new skincare and makeup items to my collection. Lovely to have a little refresh now and then especially when you have got rid of soooo much stuff!
