The Lancome Dream Team

If you're a follower of me on Instagram then you'll have seen that in late March I was sent an extremely exciting PR parcel from Lancome. Inside the elegantly presented box was the Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24h Foundation, La Base Pro Hydra Glow Primer and the All Foundation Brush. They immediately picqued my interest as I've not tried many base products from Lancome before(Teint Idole Cushion Foundation and Blush aside). Ever since then I've been using all three together to see how they worked as a trio and I'm happy to say that they've all exceeded my expectations.

The Blogger Made Me Buy It 2017

I have to admit ever since I started blogging and reading other beauty blogs I have found myself purchasing beauty products more now than ever before, most of which are influenced by my favourite bloggers. You can see it as a good thing or a bad thing. You may just discover an absolute gem that you'd never have heard of otherwise, but it can tug on the ol' purse strings and leave your purse as light as a feather. It depends on how you view it. I must admit not all products I've bought have become favourites of mine, in fact a fair few have been a disappointment and never been repurchased. I thought I'd share the products that have well and truly won me over.

Denman Strawberry Daiquiri Fragranced Brush

Hairbrushes aren't a product that I am excited by if I'm honest, although I've been an avid lover of the tangle teezer and the wet brush, but as of late I've been thoroughly enjoying using Denman brushes. Last year I was given the opportunity to try the Denman Boar Bristle Brush which I absolutely loved!(see that review here) and after trying it I was then giving the wonderful opportunity to try out one of their fragranced brushes from The Cocktail Collection, which I was so excited about. I don't know about you but fragranced hairbrushes somehow make me feel quite nostalgic. It takes me back to when I was a child. When I was younger I used to have the idea in my head that if I sprayed my hairbrush with a tonne of deodorant then my hair would smell amazing, and actually in a way, I was kinda right. It totally worked! Although I have to admit I haven't done that in years(Don't worry, I'm not lost in the 90's/early 00's again). I tend to stick with a 'normal' hairbrush now. Well, I did until most recently when I discovered the Denman Strawberry Daiquiri Fragranced Brush.

Dr Botanicals Advanced 8-Hour Overnight Renewal Cream | Review

I am always chopping and changing my skincare routine, especially where moisturiser is concerned. My skin is combination so it's oily in my t-zone and somewhat normal/dry elsewhere. It changes all the time, in fact it's become even more difficult to control since I became pregnant, which as you can imagine is really frustrating. For the last couple of months I have been using a new night time moisturiser within my routine, the Dr Botancals Advanced 8-Hour Overnight Renewal Cream. It is quite a mouthful to say aloud.

Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil with Rose Petals

For the best part of two years, maybe more, I've used the Garnier Micellar Water to remove my makeup. I guess you could say it's been an absolute staple within my skincare routine as I've purchased many a bottle. Micellar Water became such a big thing in skincare after it was first introduced by Bioderma. Admittedly I never tried the Bioderma version as I couldn't justify paying over £10 for something I wasn't quite sure of so I was relieved when the drugstore started picking up on the popularity of it and created their own versions. Now it seems that Micellar Waters are actually being pushed aside for the likes of Micellar Cleansing Oils instead. I was so intrigued by this and was curious to see if a Micellar Cleansing Oil was just as effective as the Micellar Water.

For the last month or so I've been testing out the brand new Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil with Rose Petals(£15) to see if it worked just as well as a normal Micellar Water and I am happy to report back that it is just as good, if not better.
