I’m still playing catch up and working on end of the year/beginning of new year things, so this week I’m taking a look back at the beauty products I tried last year. Here are my top 4 recommendations!
Hide it! Concealer Palette
Thanks to my dermatillomania spot out breaks for me are an even bigger nightmare. It has taken me years to finally find products that work for my skin and work to help hide the signs and scars. This product is not a BIG part of that routine (as you can see from the very used palette!). I find that I have two problems using just normal concealer; it doesn’t hide anything and makes it look even more big and obvious. By using the colour correcting concealers together I can merge and blend the perfect cover. And at £1.54 on Amazon, it’s an amazing price too! They also do a bigger 8 shade version as well which I might try in the future.
Lots of Bubbles Tantalising Gift Set
by I Love…Cosmetics
I tend to use a shower more than a bath and I prefer to have a variety of shower gels to use, not the same one every time. So I’m always on the look out for sets of small bottles of shower gels. This gift set by I Love… Cosmetics comes with 6 different flavours; coconut & cream, strawberries & cream, vanilla & ice cream (all pictured above), mango & papaya, lemons & limes, and raspberry & blackberry. I loved them! As you can see, there are only 3 left so they last quite a while and I also had the coconut & cream exfoliating shower smoothie (hence why the shower gel version is untouched so far) and that is also fantastic. These also double as bubble bath, so if you’re like me and use both or prefer one over the other you can still enjoy the gorgeous scents.
Their gift sets tend to come out more during the holiday season, but you can grab this one on Amazon for £9.99 and some of their others as well. Sadly it seems that some are only in holiday sets or have been retired, as their website only has certain flavours listed, as does Superdrug.
I was fortunate enough to get this to test from Bzz Agent and I was really happy with the product. As I’ve mentioned in previous product reviews, my skin does much better with light weight creams that hydrate. So this is perfect and it does exactly what it says it did. It hydrated and helped clean up my skin. There is one down side though; at £12.99 for 50ml it just isn’t worth it for the price. It’s good, and it does last a while, yet that is just a bit too pricey for my current budget. Especially if you use it every day, morning and night.
Flipbalm: Creamy Coconut
I am completely in love with this and have been addictively using it since I got it. It has done my lips a world of good and has a lovely sweet, but not sickening taste. The flip lid is easy to use, although it doesn’t travel very well and can open up in your bag if you’re not careful (yep, it happened). There’s plenty in it, so it’s a lip balm that will last a while no matter how often you use it! You can grab it for £4.99 from Amazon and other stockists. There are two other flavours; Juicy Watermelon and Ripe Mango.
Have you tried any of these? What did you think? What beauty products did you fall in love with in 2016?
