Sales Shopping

I picked up a few great items in the sales (another post to follow!)


First up, a Laura Mercier souffle body cream sampler set which was down from £41.50 to £20.75 at Harvey Nichols (I got the last one).  I already love the creme brulee scent - it smells of vanilla and caramel.  Looking forward to trying the others - almond coconut milk, pistachio and fresh fig.  Each tube is 85g. 



I also got a Clarins gift set which was on sale for £30.80.  It contains a full size Hand and Nail Treatment (100ml) which retails at £18.  There is also a full size Beauty Flash Balm (50ml) which retails at £27.50.  The set also contains Moisture Rich Body Lotion (100ml), One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (75ml), Foot Beauty Treatment (30ml) and Hydra Quench Cream (15ml).  The set comes in a gold coloured toiletries bag.

Tesco Haul

Was in Tesco the other day and came across some great products!


I had been looking for the Johnson's 24 hour moisture radiance hand cream and the Pantene 2min Deep Shine Masque for a while so was pleased to pick these up.  The masque is great, retails at £4.49  I think it's as good as an expensive salon product - leaves the hair shiny and soft.

I also picked up a Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream - for hands, knees, elbows and feet.

Skin Wisdom body products were on 3 for 2 and I got Vanilla & Neroli Shower and Bath Gel, Rose & Geranium Shower and Bath Gel and Rose & Geranium Bath and Body Oil.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream 200ml


I got this body cream at the Harvey Nichols 15% off Christmas evening.  It retails at £49 so I got it for £41.65.  When I bought it I hadn't realised how expensive it is - if I had I'd never have purchased it. (I think the assistant saw how shocked I was so she gave me a few samples!)

The cream contains Padina Pavonica, a collagen boosting marine extract.  It is suitable for all skin types.  A rich gel serum like cream with a "Spa" scent.  I must admit I love it.  It contains a slight sparkle which makes skin luminous.  It contains oils of babussu (like coconut), castanha (brazil nut) and bilberry seed for anti-ageing.

I'm using it only on special occasions, its a real pampering product and I'd definitely re-purchase (if I could afford it!) x

Beauty Christmas Gifts

I got some really amazing beauty related Christmas gifts!  I love them all and can't wait to use them.

My hubby got me the Origins Ginger gift set (I sent him the link to the one I wanted!) and the gorgeous little Jo Malone set was a complete surprise!  I love it.



My mum and dad got me the Prada Candy Gift set - my favourite perfume of the moment.  It comes with 75ml of Shower gel and Body Lotion.


My sister and her family gave me a Sanctuary gift set.  Also the box is great for storing stuff.


One of my friends gave me a Lush gift set and Molton Brown handcream - which smells amazing.


My in-laws gave me a Lush gift card and a Boots gift card (I can't wait to hit the sales!)


Secret Santa Gifts

I took part in two Secret Santa's this year.  The first one was organised by Nav which you can read about here.  The second one was a Beauty Box Swaps one on Facebook.  A big thank you to my Secret Santas! x

Advent Calendar - My Buy Again Products

Here are the products from the Advent Calendar that I loved the most.  These are the ones I'd definitely repurchase.


From day 1, Lancome Eau Micellaire Douceur.  I really like this product.  It smells fresh and is light on the skin.  Only negative - its not great at removing waterproof mascara and eyeliner.  I tended to use it on a light make up days.

Day 2 - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream.  My winter dry skin just loved this cream.  I'm definitely going to be purchasing some more - I've nearly finished my 7ml sample.  I loved the fact that it wasn't scented, was quite light and just sunk into the skin.  

From Days 4 and 5 - YSL Rouge Pur Couture & Lancome Hypnose Mascara.  The lipstick was absolutely gorgeous, lovely wearable colour and really moisturising on the lips (as well as cute container).  I will definitely be checking out some more shades.  This mascara is my favourite and a great size for popping in my handbag.

Day 6 was a lovely re-introduction to Lancome Juicy Tubes in shade Lychee, a light pink shade, I used to wear this shade all the time.  I had forgotten how much I used to love these.

On Day 10 I found the most amazing eye cream Lancome Genifique Yeux which I absolutely adore.  It's got a gel like texture and sinks into the skin around the eye area - it's too early to say if it's doing anything for my fine lines but I'm loving using it.

On Day 11 I got Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb EDP.  Another perfume I've used before.  Have really enjoyed using it again.  

Day 12 was the day I got Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate.  This is an absolute gem of a product.  Makes skin look more radiant by morning.  Loving this.

On Day 14 I got Kiehl's Creme de Corps.  I love this body lotion.  It does take a bit of effort to get it out the bottle but it melts into dry skin areas.  Love that its got a neutral scent.

Day 15 saw me get YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil.  Love this product, staying power is amazing.  Going to check out the other shades.

On Day 16 I got Lancome Bi-Facil an eye make up remover.  This is great for removing waterproof mascara (and the eyeliner above).

Day 17 I got Armani Code EDP.  Love the orange blossom, vanilla, honey and jasmine notes.  Really wearable scent.

On Day 19, I got Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.  A great product.  A cream but feels a bit like a salve when you rub it into your hands. It's definitely helped my dry hands these last few days.

On Day 20, I got Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara.  I love Lancome mascaras so love this one.

On Day 23, I got shu uemura cleansing oil.  Love this, nice to try again.

All in all, I loved the calendar.  I have found 15 products I love.  The others I enjoyed using but wouldn't re-purchase (although there are a couple I've not tried fully yet) and even though I knew what products the calendar held I was still excited finding out what was behind each little door each day.  I'm going to start saving for next year! x

Merry Christmas!

Wishing all those who read my blog a very Merry Christmas! Hope you have a lovely day (and get many beauty related gifts as presents!) x

Day 24 - Lancome Visionnaire


Final day! Today I received Lancome Visionnaire (7ml).  Am keen to try this as when it launched a few months ago it got masses of press coverage.  It's an advanced skin corrector for wrinkles, pores and evenness.  On the web page it says to use this at night and genifique in the morning.  I'll give it a test and let you know what I think.

Friday, 23 December 2011

Day 23 -shu uemura Cleansing Oil


So excited to receive shu uemura cleansing oil (20ml).  I have used this before and loved it.  150ml retails at £28.  From last use I remember it being brilliant at removing waterproof mascara. 

Using dry hands spread over dry skin, add a few drops of warm water to the skin to emulsify.  The oil will turn milky and then rinse with warm water.

Thursday, 22 December 2011

Day 22 - Lancome Teint Miracle


Today I got a really cute foundation Teint Miracle.  Its 5ml and in a really great shade 03 which suits my skin tone.  I've never tried any Lancome foundations so looking forward to trying this out.  The luxe mini bottle looks a bit like a nail polish!  On the website it says "helps re-create and boost the skin's luminosity.  Immediately the complexion appears flawless and fresher-looking".

I am so sad I have only 2 days left of the Advent Calendar.  I'd definitely love to buy it next year as I have found so many brands and products I love.

Wednesday, 21 December 2011

Day 21 - YSL Belle D'Opium EDP 7.5ml

Another perfume mini!  Today it's YSL Belle D'Opium EDP (7.5ml) which retails at £56 for 50ml at Boots.


With notes of Casablanca Lily, Sandalwood, Gardenia, White Pepper, Jasmine and Narguile accord.  I'm not so sure of this one as it seems quite strong - I'll give it a test though.

Redken Nature's Rescue Refreshing Detox Shampoo

I read about this shampoo recently in Red Magazine.  You can buy it from salons or online from Feel Unique for £9.99.


Sulphate and Paraben free with plant and marine extracts which helps remove build up from styling products.  Suitable for all hair types, even coloured.

Smells of the ocean, and contains sea algae, aloe vera and oceanic calone.  The range includes Radiant Sea Spray 100ml (£13), Refining Sea Polish 100ml (£13.85) and Cooling Deep Conditioner 125ml (£11.30).

My only negative is there is not much lather due to it being a more natural product which does feel a bit odd and takes a bit of getting used to but it  does leaves hair soft and shiny and smelling amazing. You can use it every day or once a week.

Day 20 - Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

Today I got another Lancome mini Mascara.  This time Hypnose Drama (2ml) in black for full body volume.  Looking forward to trying this.  I normally use the original Hypnose.  Great handbag size.

JOLIEBOX - December



I was excited to receive my box this morning.  It's a compact black box (in the style of Glossybox) and filled with products (two extras).  I think it's a fab first box.  

It comes with a menu style card - listing what is included but doesn't list the size/price of the full size products.

OPI Gold Shatter Nail Lacquer 15ml - this is a full sized product which retails at £10.50. 

Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash 50ml - retails at £20 for 200ml.  This is a product I've been wanting to try as its free from parabens etc. but have been put off by the price - can't wait to try.  Smells lovely.  It's lightly scented with lavender, violet, ylang ylang and rose.

New CID i-gloss - full size product - Light up Gloss with Mirror in Shade Baby Doll.  Retails at £16.  A wearable pink shade.  As soon as you open the lid the light comes on - there is a mirror on the side of the tube.

Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust 1.8g - a multi-use shimmer powder in Rose Gold - can be used on eyes, cheeks, body, lips, hair.  Retails at £11.

Yon-Ka Vital Defense 5ml - Anti-Ageing Cream - never heard of this brand but will try the cream out.

Also included is two bonus items:

Kusmi Detox Tea - a blend of maté, Chinese green tea and lemongrass, full flavoured with lemon - love herbal teas so looking forward to trying this out. It comes in a cute little tin.

Joliebox Concealer brush - I don't have a concealer brush so happy to find this as an extra.  

A great box - such great value for money and fab contents. 


p.s. just had a mug of tea and its delicious with a strong taste of lemongrass and no green tea bitterness.  I just need to get a tea strainer rather than using a mini sieve!


I subscribe to all 5 - Joliebox, Amarya, Glossybox, Feel Unique and Carmine (for the moment).  The Amarya one I subscribed to first (for the year) before I realised other boxes existed.  Unfortunately, I can't keep all of the others on due to the cost.  Which one do you think I should give up? I am thinking either Glossybox or Carmine.  Ooh its so difficult to decide x

Day 19 - Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve


I was so happy to see this hand cream today - Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.  I got a 30ml tube.  Full size of 75ml retails at £14.  As with the other Kiehl's products received in the advent calendar I haven't used this product before.  It is lightly scented with eucalyptus oil (this scent disappears quite quickly when on hands) and also contains avocado and sesame oils.  On the website it says "forms glove-like protection barrier against moisture loss".  My hands are so dry at the moment so can't wait to use this!

Lavera Bath Salts


I noticed the other day that Naturisimo were selling gift boxes of Lavera bath salts (which I love!).

They usually retail around about £2 each (80g sachets).  This box cost £10 for 6 (that's 12 baths, usually get two baths a sachet - though on the sachet it says to use the whole lot per bath).  I have used the wild rose and lavender & aloe vera varieties before.


Looking forward to using them again and trying vanilla & coconut, orange & sea buckthorn, vervain & lime and milk &   honey.  I also picked up two free juice beauty sachets samples.

Day 18 - Lancome Genifique

Today I  got Lancome Genifique, a youth activating concentrate (7ml).  This is a generous sized sample in a little dropper bottle.  Full size of 30ml retails at £54.65.  


It says on the Lancome site to "apply daily, morning and evening before your normal skincare routine". I am looking forward to trying this out as I am loving the Genifique Yeux I got on day 10 (one product I'd definitely re-purchase, mainly due to loving its gel like texture and the way it feels on the eye area).



Saturday, 17 December 2011

Best of Boudoir Box

This morning I received my final Boudoir Prive box.  It cost £17 plus £2.95 P&P.  Here's what I got.


Day 17 - Armani Code Femme EDP

Today I got Armani Code Femme EDP - 3ml.


I haven't tried this perfume before.  It has notes of orange blossom, vanilla, honey and jasmine.  It smells really nice.

Friday, 16 December 2011

Day 16 - Lancome Bi-Facil and Secret Santa


Today I got Bi-Facil non-oily instant cleanser 30ml.  I could have done with this product earlier this morning to take my eye make up off!

At my work Xmas party I got this lovely candle in my Secret Santa.


I also receive my Beauty Box Swaps Secret Santa.  Just awaiting the Secret Santa that Nav organised.

Thursday, 15 December 2011

Day 15 - YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil

Today I got a mini YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil in black.  Looking forward to trying this.  Will probably take it to work today as it's my work's Christmas night out tonight and I'm getting ready at the hotel - It'll be great for a smoky eye look as you can use it as eye pencil or eye shadow due to its supple texture.


See you tomorrow! x

GLOSSYBOX - DECEMBER

Guess what arrived this morning!  My December Glossybox!  I had peeked on some blogs to see what it contained and I'm not disappointed!  I am loving the glossy red box (Christmas edition).  




Here's what I got:-

Full size Nouveau Lashes (8g) Noir Mascara.  Not heard of this brand before and keen to try.  Glossybox says "quick drying, flake-free formula and dramatic volume from just one application, excellent staying power".  Retails at £14.99.

Full size Rituals Foaming Shower Gel (200ml) in T'ai Chi (White Lotus & Green Tea).  Have used this before in another scent.  Great product.  Retails at £6.50.

Deborah Lippman Razzle Dazzle mini Nail Varnish - gorgeous red glittery shade with nail polish remover mitt.

Fab Face Cleanser 28.3g, "a mild nourishing cleanser that's ideal for all skin types.  Calms redness and reduces skin reactivity with regular use".  Keen to try this one as love cleansers.  Haven't heard of this brand but you can buy it at Boots and mini Cargo Lip Gloss in Paris.

I am really pleased with the box.  Which one did you get?

Day 14 - Kiehl's Creme de Corps

Today I got the cult product from Kiehl's - Creme de Corps body moisturiser.  It retails at £8.50 for 75ml.  The size I got is 30ml.  Great for dry skin, I've tried this lotion in the past and its fab although it does take a while to sink into the skin.

It contains beta-carotene, cocoa butter and sesame oil (its neutrally scented so won't clash with perfume).  I am loving all the Kiehl's products within the calendar and I'm definitely going to go in store to check out the full range.


Tuesday, 13 December 2011

Monu Freebies

Sam at Honey Go-Beauty posted about this freebie offer on Beauty Box Swaps on Facebook.  

I received three mini sample tubes (each 5ml) of Enriched Body Cream, Neck and Bust Cream and Hand and Nail Cream.  As well as a booklet about all the products and a price list.  You can find out more about Monu products here.


Day 13 - Lancome Miracle EDP

Today I got a 5ml EDP of Lancome Miracle which retails at £36 for 30ml.  I used to wear this scent  so it was nice to try it again.  With notes of Lychee, Freesia, Magnolia, Jasmine, Ginger, Pepper, Amber and Musk.  I'll enjoy using the sample but won't re-purchase.


Monday, 12 December 2011

Superdrug Freebies

I picked up a couple of items in Superdrug recently.  These were free as I used my points!  I first read about the Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Moisture Cream on Gemma's blog.  

I also picked up a Montagne Jeunesse Ultra Deep Cleanse Amore Rose face mask for normal, oily and t-zone skin.  

Have you bought anything with your points recently?

Day 12 - Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate


Today I received Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate.  This is 4ml size.  Full size retails at £36 for 30ml.

I am keen to try this product as the website says "One night.  A few drops.  Younger looking skin by morning".  The elixir is paraben free and stuffed with essential oils, Omega 6 fatty acids and evening primrose oil.  Good for dry and dehydrated skin. (perfect for this time of year) The website says to apply 2-3 drops onto cleansed skin and massage in.  Can be used alone or with moisturiser.  I am loving these mini products! x

Sunday, 11 December 2011

Day 11 - Flowerbomb EDP

How excited am I! Today I received a mini EDP of Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf (5ml).

I love this perfume so was pleased to get this.  If you click the link above you will see that Debenhams are offering 15% off the perfume and body lotion at present - a really good deal if you like this scent.

50ml is retailing at £43.35 instead of £51 and the body lotion is £34 instead of £40.

With notes of centifolia rose, Indian osmanthus, catleya orchid and sambac jasmine.  This is one of my favourite items from the Advent Calendar.

I'll be doing a post at the end of the month letting you know what my favourites have been and which I will definitely re-purchase.

Feel Unique Beauty Box - December

Imagine my excitement to hear the postman at the door this morning, especially as I knew I was due my Feel Unique Beauty Box!


It's a really fab box, I am really pleased with the contents. 

"Finishing Touches...add some magic to your Christmas...

Sparkle your way through the Festive season with this month's fabulous finishing touches.  With a sprinkle of sugar, a touch of gloss and a spritz of fragrance, all eyes will be on you!"

They are also giving £5 off any product if you spend £30 or more.

Onto the contents:

25ml Annick Goutal Mandragore EDT - this retails at £62.05 for 100ml.  It has notes of Bergamot, pepper, mint, star anise, boxwood, ginger and mandrake. It smells really fresh, fruity and minty on my skin.  A unisex scent, I love it!  I think it is a very generous addition to the box (its also in a cute little purple bag with tassled drawstring).  Would also make an excellent gift.

1g Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust a full size product at £9.35.  We got something similar in a previous box (which I haven't tried yet) but happy to give this a shot though.

30ml Clarisonic Nourishing Care Cleanser for normal/dry skin.  Not sure if I'll use this as I have combination skin although my skin is a bit dry this time of year.

4ml Nails Inc. in Oxford Circus, a candy pink colour.

8ml - full size Figs & Rouge Sweet Geranium Balm which retails at £3.49.  It can be used for cuticles, dry skin areas, lips etc.  Have used this before and loved it especially the smell of geranium.

Finally, a trio of Living Nature skin samples - all 2ml - vitalising cleanser, extra hydrating toning gel and nourishing day cream.

I was really pleased with this box and will probably use everything in it and thought it was excellent value.  Did you get this box?  What are your thoughts?

Days 9 and 10 - Lancome L'Absolu Nu Lip Colour and Lancome Genifique Yeux



Yesterday I got Lancome L'Absolu Nu Moisture Replenishing Bare Lip Colour in shade 302 (Voile de Rose).  It's a nice light colour and very moisturising on the lips. This is 1.42g.  A full size costs £21.

Today, I  got Lancome Genifique Yeux, an eye cream with a light gel texture (the kind of texture I like best in an eye cream).  Looking forward to trying this out as I don't know anything about this range.

P.S. Thanks so much to all my followers I am so excited to be nearing the dizzy heights of 100 followers! I really do appreciate it so much.  I am planning to do another giveaway in January and this will be international. x

Birthday Weekend

Last weekend we stayed at Knockinaam Lodge near Portpatrick in Dumfries and Galloway.  The lodge was once home to the Hunter-Blair family - its now a country hotel in 30 acres with its own private beach - though much too cold in December for swimming in the wild Irish sea!  (I took this photo from the beach).


Our room was Churchill, which had an amazing bathroom and huge bed!  The bath was ancient and really deep and was large enough to be able to float without touching the sides! (even hubby who hates baths loved it!)  There was even a step to help you climb in!



Each morning we had a full Scottish breakfast which was yummy (if highly calorific!) complete with toast, muffins, oatcakes, croissants and pots of leaf tea.


Here are the pampering products I took with me:


It was a great weekend away (even though the weather was cold and windy) x

Days 7 and 8 - Lancome Renergie Cream and Armani Diamonds EDP

With my excitement of getting the Amarya Beauty Box I forgot my Advent Calendar!

On day 7, I got Lancome Renergie Lift Volumetry Cream (15ml) which you can read about here.  It retails at £60.25 for 50ml. I'm looking forward to trying it out.  A generous size pot and would be good for travel too.  A review will follow.

Today I got Armani Diamonds EDP (5ml).  It's a fruity, floral scent with woods and amber - one for the handbag on nights out!  I really like the smell of this one!

Amarya Beauty Box - December

I was excited to receive my December Amarya box before I left for work this morning!  Included is a full size Christmas gift from REN worth £28!  The set contains Neroli & Grapefruit Body Wash and Body Cream (both 200ml). I've used the Rose Otto set before - lovely products so interested to try these ones.

The set comes in a beautiful gift box.  REN collaborated with de Gournay (a wallpaper company).  The designs are taken from Japanese and Korean hand-painted wallpaper designs.


Also included is a 10g sample of Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream and a spray vial of the new scent range by Acorelle in Citrus Verbena which you can find out about here.  It smells citrus-y and fresh.

I'm really pleased with the box this month x
