A small haul featuring Dior and Pixi!

Last year, I was hauling regularly but this year, I have cut back quite a bit for a number of reasons - I have so many products in my collection that weren't being used (hence the rediscoveries posts), I am trying to be more mindful with my spending and (probably the main reason!), I am going to America at the end of next month so I am saving to have a big splurge in Sephora! Rather than just jumping on all of the latest releases, I am only buying products that genuinely excite me/I have wanted for a while/I have run out of. Today, I have products that fill all of those criteria, so let's get started!

Pixi Glow Tonic: This is my favourite acid toner and I have raved about it several times on the blog so I won't waffle on for too long but I really love how soft and clear my skin is when I use this and no other acid toner is as effective as Glow Tonic on my skin. I am almost finished my current bottle so had to repurchase and this is probably my 6th/7th bottle, which speaks volumes about how much I love this product. I have sensitive skin but it doesn't cause any redness or adverse reaction so I would recommend it if you have similar skin issues to me.

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist: This is another repurchase as I recently finished a bottle and again, I love it. I use this after Glow Tonic to add some hydration to my skin. Unlike some facial mists, this actually does hydrate the skin as it contains hyaluronic acid and the benefits can be felt immediately. I like the fact that it is a small bottle so it is perfect for in your handbag for hydration top-ups during the day.

DIOR Addict Lip Glow Liner: This is a limited edition liner and, to be fair, is probably a bit of a Princess product but I really wanted it and it is limited edition. I bought it during the Escentual sale when it was reduced by 25% so that made me feel a little less guilty about buying it. It is supposed to boost the natural colour of the lips and therefore, be suitable for use with all lipstick and lip gloss colours. I will give it a go and report back to you on those claims!

DIOR Addict Lip Glow Lip Balm: This is a product that I have had my eye on for a few years but never actually got around to buying because I couldn't justify the price for a lip balm, albeit one in the prettiest packaging! I have read so many positive reviews on this product that I knew I would have to bite the bullet at some point and buy it, but so many sites exclude Dior from their sales, but Escentual don't so I bought it using the 25% discount code. It comes in 3 shades - Coral, Lilac and Original, which is the one I chose because I am likely to use this on a daily basis and would prefer a natural lip colour. Again, I will report back to you with my thoughts on this when I have been using it for a while.

So that's it - a short & sweet haul! Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! I'd also love to hear what you've bought recently and if you're a spender or a saver?
