I’ve bought a few new things and I’ve also been sent a few bits too so I thought I’d put them all together in a what’s new post.
I have used Ben & Anna’s deodorants before and really liked them so when I made a recent Content Beauty order, I added one on as I’d run out. I like the scent of this one as it’s not too strong and it works fairly well on a day to day basis. I like the fact that its in a tube so I don’t have to stick my fingers into a pot to apply.
Also on my Content Beauty order was this mascara as I’d used up my Inika one. I really like this so far – I had a recommendation for it on Instagram and I don’t use much from Lily Lolo apart from their eyeshadow but I would definitely consider buying this again in the future. It’s volumising and thickening without being clumpy or flaky.
Neom have recently launched their own skincare line and I’ve been using the face wash and serum from the Great Day Glow range. I love the scent of the serum and I think it definitely makes a difference when I use the serum overnight – my skin looks plumper in the mornings. The only thing that’s a bit annoying is the pump – you have to squeeze really hard to get a lot in the pipette.
I was recently sent these bamboo cotton buds to try which I was looking forward to as this was one of the things I had been meaning to swap over to a more eco alternative but hadn’t made the switch yet. I think they’re great – they do a good job and they’re just the right size.
This luxury mask can be used on your face or your body, simply apply with the (beautiful) face mask brush and leave on for 3 minutes. It’s a warming mask and it doesn’t set hard like other clay masks do which I like as sometimes I leave them on for too long and it dries my skin out. I haven’t tried it on my body yet but I definitely will do! It smooths out my skin and reduces redness. A great one to try if you don’t like to leave masks on for too long!
I was recently sent a trio of Tropic’s body velvet creams and my favourite scent of the three was the Pomelo scent. The cream reminds me a bit of the creams I used to make years ago when I dabbled in DIY natural skincare but they have a lovely light whipped texture which is also intensely moisturising on your skin so I’ll definitely be using these more over the colder months.
I saw Ana Goes Green write about this and immediately bought one for myself. A file for your tweezers – not something I ever thought I needed but something that has made a huge difference. I have a few pairs of tweezers I’ve gathered over the years but my favourite are a pink pair of Tweezerman – but they were pretty blunt! All you do is put the tweezers on either size of the file (it’s on both sides) and rub up and down – voila sharp tweezers!
