Top Ten Skincare products of 2015 featuring Oskia, Estee Lauder, Omorovicza, Aurelia & more!

On Saturday I posted my top fifteen make-up items from 2015 (here) but I've been quite restrained today and have narrowed it down to my top ten skincare items from the year. Realistically, I could have written about my top twenty, being the skincare addict that I am, but I pushed myself to just pick ten products. These have all featured heavily throughout the year so I won't waffle on for too long about them but will briefly explain why each one made the final cut. Let's get started!

Top 15 Make-up items from 2015 featuring Kat Von D, Too Faced, Clinique & more!

You've no idea how difficult it was to narrow my 2015 make-up favourites down to just 15 products! There was absolutely no way I could have included skincare, body care, hair care and make-up in just one top 15 post so I've decided to divide them up, starting today with make-up. I wasn't sure how to approach narrowing my favourite products down initially so I decided to choose the products that were most worn during the year, rather than just new products in my collection. Let's get started!

The only nail polish I'll be wearing this Christmas - Burberry Military Red

I'm back from my brief hiatus - I was really ill and couldn't even contemplate blogging but I'm feeling a little better now so today I am sharing with you the only nail polish that I will be wearing this Christmas season! It isn't exactly budget-friendly (€19 for 8ml) but if you can't treat yourself at Christmas, then when can you?!

20 brilliant beauty products under €20

Although I feature a lot of high end beauty products on this blog, I am also a fan of budget products. Budget doesn't have to mean lower quality, just like a large price tag doesn't necessarily mean great quality (I learned that the hard way!). When the lovely Edel from The Pharmer's Journal tagged me to do Thirty under €20, I was up for the challenge but I had to change it to 20 under €20 because I couldn't find another ten products in my current collection under €20 but if you read my blog regularly, you will know that I love budget body lotions (Nivea, Garnier, Vaseline Intensive Care etc) but I just don't have any at the moment, also I love Soap & Glory foot & hand creams but again, don't have any at the moment. I wanted to only feature products that I actually use and have in my collection at the moment. I have a mixture of make-up, bodycare and a few miscellaneous products, so let's get started!

Recent purchases #26 A Sephora haul featuring Marc Jacobs, Tatcha, Kat Von D & more!

I'm back with another haul and this is a really good one because it's a Sephora haul! No, I didn't just sneak across the Atlantic without telling you all - my best friend was on holiday in New York recently and she very kindly offered to pick up some of my wishlist products for me while she was there! She's also a VIB rouge member so she bought all of these with her 20% discount in the sale, which happened to be on whilst she was there. I am very excited to show you what I got!

Speedy reviews #5 featuring REN Wake Wonderful Night-time Facial & Alpha-h Liquid Laser

Another pair of speedy reviews today & both of these items are skincare products from brands that I like other products from so I was pretty confident when purchasing that I would be happy with these. Unfortunately I can't say that it's love, but it's not a case of hate either. Let me tell you why...

The repurchases: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Oskia Renaissance Mask & GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud

Don't you just hate when your favourite skincare products all run out at the same time?! I have quite a large skincare stash but these three products are Holy Grail for me and I had to replace them immediately, rather than after using up some other products in my stash - bold, I know!
