Fancy treating yourself to something this payday? I have three gorgeous products for three budgets for you today, starting at under £10!
Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara*: It's quite a while since I last tried a budget mascara but everyone raves about this brand, so I was delighted to receive their latest mascara release to try. It has a flexible wand, so it really is easy to get right in at the root of even the shortest lashes, as you can wiggle it to get right in there. Once you are at the very root, it's easy to go to the tip and one coat will give defined lashes, however it will take a few coats to build up some volume. It definitely adds length and definition more than volume, which makes me prefer it for daytime wear. It's very black, doesn't make lashes go crispy, doesn't smudge or flake, and best of all, it's easy to remove without lots of tugging. If you're in the market for a new mascara that doesn't break the bank, I'd highly recommend giving this a try. £9.99.
L'Occitane Purifying Freshness Dry Shampoo Mist*: Who hasn't been using dry shampoo a lot more than usual over the past few weeks? It really is an essential in summer! Most dry shampoos are in aerosol cans with a mist action, whereas this is in a recyclable plastic bottle, with a pump action, even though it's described as a mist. What I really love about this product (apart from the fact that it doesn't leave any white residue in the hair), is that it feels so refreshing, due to the peppermint it contains. It instantly revives the hair, absorbs excess oil and makes hair feel and smell fresh. I spray it at the roots, taking my hair in sections, and then massage it in, to ensure that it is evenly distributed. It doesn't weigh my hair down at all, extends time between washes, but also doesn't irritate my scalp. A tip is to apply it at night if you're going to the gym in the morning, or if you sweat a lot at night, as it really makes a difference and you wake to fresher hair. £16.50.
Maison Margiela Replica Sailing Day : I love aquatic fragrances in summer, and this is a really beautiful one as it doesn't smell synthetic. It's fresh and really does make you think of a breezy day at the beach, breathing in the sea air. The notes include juniper essence, iris absolute, rose super essence, coriander and orcanox. It's one that men could wear too, so if you prefer very sweet, feminine scents, you might want to skip this one, but I quite like a masculine scent, as they tend to be very fresh. My only qualm is that it only lasts around 4 hours on me, but I just re-apply. I have two other fragrances from this brand and didn't find this to be an issue, so it might just be my skin. If you want to go to the beach, but can't, bring it to you with this fragrance! £49.
Have you treated yourself to anything this month? I'd love to hear!
