For a while there I wasn't venturing too far from my usual makeup and skincare routines but after a few shopping trips I've found some really beautiful products that I just had to share with you.
Ever since I can remember I've been a terrible sleeper, all my good ideas come at night and my brain goes in to action. As a kid I'd always have lavender scented pillow spray and so when I saw that This Works had a Deep Sleep range I had to give this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray a whirl. It's a really comforting smell to me and I always feel really relaxed and calm after dousing my bedding with this. Whereas some scented products can smell quite synthetic, this has a beautiful scent and it never fails to help me unwind.
I've mixed up my skincare routine lately and added a few new gems. This Estée Lauder Pore Minimising Skin Refresher has made my skin feel so soft and smoothed over. It works instantly to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores for a refined finish. I cannot tell you enough how amazing this is!
Oh how I do love a mask! This Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, a new launch from Clinique which should be on counters from January, absorbs into my face really quickly without feeling heavy. I'm not a massive fan of overnight masks, I usually find them rich and tacky and the scent too overpowering but after one use of this mask, it made such a difference to my skin that I've changed my mind! I don't have dry skin but I notice my skin is more supple and smooth after a night with this slathered on.
Yes, you're seeing correctly; two cheek products I've been wearing lately - I won't ever curb my blusher habit so we may as well embrace it. First up is the Hourglass Illume Cream to Powder Bronzer duo in Sunset. I love Hourglass products and fancied getting a cream bronzer to sculpt me some cheekbones as bronzer isn't something I have a lot of. I've been using the two shades together, blending the blush in to the top of my cheeks and contouring with the bronzer. The two work well together and it's pretty hassle free.
Lastly, this Laura Mercier set was in the Space NK sale for just £10, it would have been rude not to buy it as I almost purchased it at full price. The palette is lovely, it contains Topaz, Kir Royal, Morning Dew and Primrose eye shades which are all beautiful. The shades can be popped out so I swapped Vintage Pink blusher for one of my old favourites, Lush Nectarine as I know I'll get more use out of it. I took this away with me last night and its so compact and perfect.
As you can see, quite a few new products have taken my fancy lately. What are your thoughts on this weeks most loved?
