4 treats for 4 budgets

3 treats for 3 budgets, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Clarins Comfort Scrub, Natasha Denona Tan Palette, Nest Candles

It's that time of the month again (payday!) and if you're in the mood for treating yourself, I have three great products to share with you today! As I always say, you don't need to spend a fortune to treat yourself.

Under £20:

Nest Candles: I'm a huge candle fiend but it can be a really expensive love affair! Luxury candles aren't always the best but I quite often find that 'budget price' candles don't give off much scent so I'm usually happy to pay a little more but I have found a real gem in Nest. I love the simple aesthetic and the fact that this is a small business, which I am always happy to support if I can. Currently, there are six scents available and I bought Maison De Plage, which is a unique scent. It contains notes of lime and grapefruit but they are combined with cacao and blue agava flower so it's quite warm but with a hint of zestiness. I'm really enjoying it for summer. I find that the further down I burn it, the more intense the scent so for my first few burns, the scent was very subtle but it definitely gets better with time. I'll definitely be buying more! £15.


Clarins Comfort Scrub: Clarins have released a new range of three masks, one for dry skin, one for oily skin and one for dehydrated skin. Comfort Scrub is perfect for dry and sensitive skin (exactly my skin!). I love that they are housed in tubes as it keeps the product fresh and it's also easy to travel with. This mask has a gel in oil formula and is infused with sugar microcrystals, which gently exfoliate the skin and wild mango butter, which nourishes the skin. I have to emphasise that this is a very gentle scrub, yet the results are impressive in terms of how smooth it leaves the skin but also in how radiant the skin looks after use. If you have sensitive skin and are worried about using anything too harsh on your skin, this is the mask for you. £26.

£31 - 50:

Caudalie Beauty Elixir: This cult face mist has a new limited edition bottle this summer! The light pink ombré bottle is stunning and reminiscent of a summer garden. The mist can be used as part of your skincare routine or throughout the day to refresh makeup. It can also be used as a finishing spray if your makeup looks a little too powdery. It's formulated with 100% natural origin ingredients. It smells really refreshing due to the inclusion of mint balm but isn't too harsh as it also contains rose, among other ingredients. Over the past week or so when the weather was humid, I kept this in my fridge for the ultimate refreshing treat! The bottle is so pretty that I'll be tempted to keep it when I finish it! £32.


Natasha Denona Tan Palette: The perfect summer face palette! The bronzer adds some warmth but it also works well to add some definition to the cheekbones without looking at all muddy. The formula of the powder products is very finely milled, which means that it blends evenly into the skin. The cream highlighter has a light texture, which doesn't feel at all heavy on the skin and doesn't disturb the base underneath. Wearing one of the highlighting products adds some glow and when layered with the powder highlighter, it really intensifies the effect to take you from day to night. For holidays, this is a great palette because the bronzer and highlighters can also be used on the eyes. The overall look is radiance with holiday skin. The only criticism is that I think it may only be suited to medium skin tones. £51.

Have any of these tempted you? Will you be treating yourself to anything this month?
