The best of what's left in the sales.....

I know that a lot of people are saying that 2019 is the year of the low buy and while I am not personally setting a monthly budget, I am trying to be more mindful of my purchases. In 2018, there were some months where nothing caught my eye and others where a number of products did - this is why I wouldn't set a monthly figure because I actually find it easy not to buy anything some months. That being said, for beauty lovers it isn't easy to go on a 'beauty diet' so if you do feel like treating yourself, I have a round up of the best of what's left in the sales to share with you.

The A-Z of my favourite beauty products

The A-Z of my favourite beauty products

Two years ago, I wrote The A-Z of my favourite beauty products - post here. I thought it would be fun to revisit it and see if I could manage to find to find a product for each letter of the alphabet again! I also wanted to try not to have any duplicates and apart from maybe 3 letters, they are all new products.  I would love you to tag me if any of you decide to do this post!

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm Review

Following on from parts 1 and 2 of my The Hype Is Real series, I'm back with another installment. This time I'm talking Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, which is a product that I've been using for around 19 years at this stage!

Cult Beauty exclusive Morphe palettes: 9A Always Golden, 9B Bronzed Babe, 9C Jewel Crew

Moprhe 9C Jewel Crew Review, Morphe 9B Bronzed Babe Review, Morphe 9A Always Golden Review,

If you read my Morphe post last month, you will have seen that I received three eyeshadows palettes, all of which are exclusive to Cult BeautyI already had a large Morphe eyeshadow palette and wondered how these smaller palettes would fare in comparison. I was very pleasantly surprised by the size of the palettes as I thought they would be similar in size to MAC 9 pan palettes, which are tiny but these are a very decent size with 13.5 of product. The packaging is slimline but sturdy and inside the lid is a mirror. For £12, that is a real bonus.

Clarins Spring Makeup!

Clarins Spring Makeup Collection 2019

When I received the Clarins Spring makeup press release, I got giddy! As much as I am a fan of the festive season, I really love Spring and all that it brings. For me, it brings hope and is the perfect time to make changes if you want to. Like their festive makeup collection (post here), there aren't a lot of products but I think that's really good because with each season, we don't need a whole new set of products, just a few to add into our everyday makeup to freshen it up.

The best Sunday Riley products for dry and sensitive skin. Cult Beauty Brand Of The Month

Sunday Riley Brand Overview

As most of you will know, every month Cult Beauty have a brand of the month and in January it's Sunday Riley, which means that there is free worldwide shipping on all products. In addition to that, while stocks last, if you spend £75 or more on the brand, you will receive a free deluxe sized Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment. Sunday Riley is not just a brand, it's the also the name of the founder of this cruelty-free brand. I have tried quite a few products from the brand and am a big fan because I find that everything I have tried is effective and gives quick results - what I like in my skincare! I love that most of the products are available in full and half sizes because it isn't the cheapest brand and this makes it more feasible for people to try the products. Today I want to share my top picks from the brand for dry and sensitive skin, although most of these products will work for all skin types.

The best discoveries I made in my Advent Calendars

I was lucky enough to have four beauty advent calendars in December (and the all important chocolate one!) and although I had tried some of the products they contained previously (so was happy to find backups or minis for holidays), I also made some new discoveries. These are products that I will repurchase when I finish them. I think that's the best thing about advent calendars and beauty boxes - it gives opportunity to try products that you might not otherwise or that have been on your radar for a while.

Five overnight masks to clarify, brighten, hydrate and repair the skin

Five overnight masks to clarify, brighten, hydrate and repair the skin. Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask Review

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! I really enjoyed the break catching up with family and friends and spending lots of quality time with my husband. I don't know about you but my skin is kinda hating me a little after the Christmas holidays - pretty much two weeks of eating and drinking more than I usually would, not making the best food choices and less sleep than normal means that my skin is crying out for some T.L.C. Masks are always the most effective way to treat my skin and overnight masks take it one step further as they have nothing else to compete with (makeup, SPF etc). Luckily, I have a number of masks in my stash that I can depend on to clarify, brighten, repair and hydrate my skin. It's not necessary to own so many masks but what can I say? I'm a bit extra when it comes to my skincare!
