Last month saw quite a mix of products being used, which I always love. It’s great when you find products you have loved and forgotten about in your stash!
First up is the newest Garnier body gel-cream which is a great price – £1.99 for 250ml! I actually really liked their original version of this which I have somewhere, but decided to get this as I liked the sound of it. Let me start by saying, I actually hate the feel of this when I apply it. The gel-cream has a really strange consistency and texture, a bit like gunge! This would have put me off right away except that it leaves my skin feeling gorgeous. I’ve never really used a body moisturiser which has left my skin feeling this great. I usually apply it after a shower or bath at night and wake up with lovely soft and nourished skin.
I’d never heard of theBalm before, but Lily got this blush in her Carmine box (RIP) and I fell in love. I hunted this down (I didn’t want to pay the full £16 when I knew there would be someone who got it in their box and didn’t fancy it) and Lucy came to my rescue. This is a gorgeous peachy pink blush which leaves my cheeks looking so smooth and flushed. I’ve not stopped using this since I got it, which is made as I must have over 50 blushers in my collection. A great blush/eyeshadow (I only use it as a blusher) and definitely one I would recommend.
I hadn’t really heard a lot about MACs Fix +, but I wanted to see what it was like so I picked it up at Duty Free when I was flying home before Christmas. This is a mineral and vitamin based water which sets makeup and adds a lovely glow to skin. It contains lots of lovely ingredients to help skin and keep it hydrated. I spray it on after applying foundation, before powder, to give my skin a glow and to set makeup for the day.
I really do think this keeps my makeup in place for longer, and I know it really does benefit my skin so much.
