Pay day is the best day isn’t it? Certainly perks you up after a long month working away (unless you work in a school like me where at the end of August you get paid for doing absolutely nothing – score!). I like to go a bit crazy on Pay Day and allow myself to treat myself to a few bits and bobs I’ve been lusting after – I mostly pick up beauty treats but occasionally it’s clothes or shoes. This month it’s all three. Woops. This post is about the beauty things that I bought myself and I might do another post on the clothes and shoes I bought if you’d like that?
Dove Summer Glow Moisturiser
I bought this moisturiser as I currently have a very tanned chest and feet and ghostly pallor elsewhere, I thought this might even out my tan a little bit for when I’m wearing skirts and things. I bought the medium/dark one as everyone says it works quicker so I’m looking forward to giving this a try.
L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Solution
This is a repurchase as I’ve been using this product for a couple of months now and I love it, it’s so quick and easy to use and it really does work. I use it to remove all of my make-up before I do a deep cleanse, it’s also perfect for cleaning up little mistakes.
Bourjois Blush Exclusif
I was really excited when I spied this little beauty on the shelves of Boots as I’d heard lots of nice things about it, it’s a blush that’s shade depends on the warmth and PH of your skin so it creates a bespoke shade for you. Kind of like the Barry M ‘green’ lipstick that’s pink colour depends on your skin. I’ve not tried this out yet but when I do I’ll do a post about it.
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
Another repurchase for me, I love this stuff. It’s a lightweight oil for your hair that really smoothes out any frizziness and leaves hair feeling amazing. I think I will always have a bottle of this stuff lurking in my bathroom.
Superfacialist by Una Brennan Intense Moisture Mask
A blogger favourite that I’ve been lusting after for a little while now, my skin tends to get quite dehydrated in the winter due to the heating being on all the time so I thought this would be perfect. I love doing face masks as I find them to be quite therapeutic and it’s nice to take the time to sit and relax. They also offer big results, I almost always notice a difference in my skin after using a mask – hopefully this one will be the same.
Veet Precision Wax & Care
Such a glamorous purchase I’m sure you’ll agree, I’ve wanted to try out this product for a long time but it’s quite expensive. In Boots when I bought this there was an offer on making it a more reasonable price so I popped it in the basket. I’m going to attempt to wax my top lip with this as I’ve noticed the hairs in some of my pictures lately and I don’t like it! I might also try it on my brows if it’s a success elsewhere.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat
And another repurchase! I really like this topcoat as it dries your nails super fast, my last bottle has gone a bit gloopy now though so it was time to get a new one. I’ve been using a different topcoat lately but it really frustrates me as I have to wait ages for my nails to dry.
