A slightly vast collection of beauty products!

Hi everyone!

So in this post I thought that I would cover a few recent items I have bought over the last few weeks and haven’t had chance to review yet, so with this in mind I thought I would squish a few in one post to make it more digestible! 🙂

Bioré Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser – 

This was a good buy although rather pricey for a cleanser in my opinion as I tend to go for cheaper ones and I think this was like £4-5, although I am super happy with it because it does clean my face well and leaves it fresh and doesn’t dry it out. As for the blemish fighting/complexion clearing side to it, I believe this actually has worked! I have noticed my skin has been a lot better recently after using this for just over a week or so. This is also my first Bioré experience and product as I haven’t ever bought anything from the range before but I can say I will be certainly looking for other products within the range to use after this one!

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser Youth Protect –

This little moisturiser was a impulse buy from boots, it contains royal jelly and bee venom apparently and is free from parabens, sodium laureth sulphate and mineral oils. I primarily bought it because I needed a new moisturiser and I had products before that have contained bee venom and they’ve been really wonderful so I thought this would be the same and it is. It smells like a bit pot of honey and milk and leaves my skin feeling really soft and fresh, which is great!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum –

So this was probably one of the most pricey things I have bought, I have been looking for a serum for a long time that works really well and is effective however in today’s market mostly all serums are above £10 at least which is a little bit of pain considering most of them come in tiny tubs or tubes! However I really like this serum, you only need a little tiny bit in my opinion to cover the whole face generously and it smells like fruit as well which is a bonus. This and the Bioré face cleanser could be the reason my skin is looking so much better recently because before using these two products my skin looked and felt dry and dull but now I can safely say it is spot free (touch-wood no jinxing!) and soft. Again I’ve never used any of the Nip + Fab products but they’re definitely something I am going to look into long term.

Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Lotion – 

I already mentioned one moisturiser however I bought this one when I realised my other moisturisers haven’t got any sun protection in! I have been going jogging a lot lately and the sun has made its return, so I thought that it was best to maybe get a moisturiser with some protection in it and this one has UVA & UVB protection of all skins types and it was mega cheap so win win!

Argan Dew Replenishing Hair Mask & Miraculous Argan Oil Samples review*

So the lovely Marine over at Argan Dew emailed and said I could review some of their Argan Dew samples! I naturally was super happy about this because I love trying new things on my hair, it really has been through the works with bleaching and dying etc and a little tender loving care wouldn’t go a miss right now so I was happy to review the samples naturally! 🙂 I had heard a lot of good things about Argan oil originally and I have always been keen to give it a go!

I got sent a little package and inside was some samples of Argan Dew Replenishing Hair Mask and some samples of the Argan Dew Miraculous Argan Oil. Now firstly the Argan Dew Replenishing Hair Mask states that it will restore your hair’s natural beauty and health whilst the Argan Dew Miraculous Argan Oil Daily Hair Treatment says on the sample packet that it will protect and restore your hair’s natural shine and vitality – all things my poor hair needs right now!

Overall the samples were a pleasure to use, they smelt AMAZING! and were not thick or greasy at all which is something that is important to me when I use any sort of hair treatment. I have nearly ran out of the samples as I used them very frequently because I did notice a difference in my hair, it looked and felt much more stronger and silkier which was great!

A big thank you to Marine and the people over at Argan Dew for the quality samples! Take a look at their website or social networks if you want to know more!
