Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Recent purchases #19 featuring GLAMGLOW, L'Occitane, Kat Von D, By Terry & more!

I've finished up a good number of products lately so needed to stock up again & also wanted to try some products that I have had my eye on for a while so this has culminated in a haul that I want to share with you today. I didn't buy all of these at once, but over the last few weeks but have kept them all unopened so I could put them all in one post!

First up is a repurchase, it's GLAMGLOW Youthmud mask. I finished a pot recently & even in the short few weeks I was without it, I could see a change in my skin's texture and it also looked more congested so I knew that I had to repurchase this. As soon as I finish this post, I will be applying this mask because my skin has been crying out for it.

I needed a new serum because my skin needs help with hydration and wanted to try a new one, so after a bit of research I decided on Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. This claims to plump the skin and significantly reduce the look of dull, tired-looking skin. Sounds like exactly what I need at the moment. I am hoping that the combination of both this & the Youthmud mask will have my skin behaving again. I will report back when I have been using it for a while.

I needed a new detangling spray because I have quite knotty hair, so I gave into the hype and bought Unite 7 Seconds Condition Leave in Detangler because I have heard Fleur de Force and Lily Pebbles both rave about this. I hope it lives up to my expectations because it was more expensive than the product I normally use! Again, I will let you know my thoughts in a few weeks.

In terms of make-up, I bought two products. Both eye products because I seem to be addicted to eye shadows (is there an eye-shadow-holics support group out there?!). As soon as I saw the Kat Von D Light & Shade Eye Contour Palette, I knew that I had to have it. I bought it from Rose's Beauty Store and it arrived within a week of despatch. I don't own any all matte palettes but I also really liked the layout of this one - it is in 3 sections and each section has 4 shadows that work well together to create each eye look. There are warm, cool & neutral tones in there and I can see myself using this A LOT! It is my first Kat Von D purchase so I am very excited to use it. I have wanted a By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow for over a year now but only succumbed recently when Feel Unique began to sell By Terry products. I had a £5 discount code, which eased the pain of the price (a little!). I chose Misty Rock because that is the one I have wanted from the start. It was either that or Bronze Moon so if I like this one, I may end up going back for more. I am very excited to finally own this & can't wait to use it.

Finally, I had a bit of a L'Occitane splurge! Summer is coming so it's time to start working on the skin that has been hidden under layers for a few months! I love the Amande Shower Oil, so repurchased that but also bought the matching Supple Skin Oil and Tonic Body Oil. The plan is to use the Tonic Body Oil on my legs, bum & tum and the Supple Skin Oil everywhere else. I will let you know if I see/feel any difference in my skin.

So that's the end of my haul. I am really excited to get using these products and will let you know my thoughts on them. Tell me what you have been buying recently in the comments below or your thoughts on any of the products above! I always love to hear about new products or repurchases that are staples.

  1. Love the purchases! I've been looking for a European place that ships Tarts and Kat von D for ages, so thanks a lot for the mention I directly placed an order! I'd love to read how the serum has been working out for you once you've tried it. xx


  2. That's great! There are many great products on that site - a but pricier than in the U.S. but great for us Europeans to be able to get our hands on them! I'll keep you posted on the serum! x

  3. Wow now that is a haul, some great products there. Can't wait to see how you get on with the Kat Von D palette as I have had my eye on that one. :)

  5. I definitely should be with you on that support group for eyeshadow palettes addicts, haha! Can't wait to see your review on the palette and also the Kiehl's serum sounds very intriguing! x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

  6. We should form our own support group - I'm sure the membership would be sky high! First impressions = it's love with the palette! xx

  7. I LOVEEEEEEe the glamglow mask. The black one is the ultimate! Am off to the U.S soon and have been recommended by lots of people to get some Kat Von D stuff xx

  8. I really wish we could get Kat Von D stuff over here because I am already in love with this palette & really want to try more of her products! I'm a huge Glamglow fan too! Can't be without this mask! xx

  9. Oh fabulous haul and you won't be disappointed with the UNITE - it's one of my fave hair products ever & if I could only have one, this would be it!

  10. Oh that sounds great! I'll be using it for the first time tomorrow & can't wait now! Thanks! xx

  11. Not that I want to be an enabler........... but do! My skin is so soft & I have only used the body oils once! You need some L'Occitane in your life! xx

  12. I love misty rock! It's one of my favourite products ever! If they weren't so darn expensive I'd have all the shades by now :) xx

  13. It's dangerous to even try one because no doubt I will end up wanting more! Pity they are so pricey! xx

  14. Such a great splurge, it makes me want to go out shopping haha! The Kat Von D palette sounds amazing, I'd love to try out the brand in the future as I have heard so many great things. I'd look forward to hearing how you get on with the L'Occitane products x

    Beauty with charm

  15. When I put them together for this post, it seemed very spendy but because I bought them at separate stages it didn't feel quite as splurgy! I think I do that to ease the guilt! I'm really loving the L'Occitane Tonic Oil already! xx


I really love to read your comments & appreciate all of them!
