Mini Beauty Haul!

Hi Everybody,

I have a bag of beauty products that I picked up recently.

When I was in Latvia, I did purchase some products from Latvia’s best-known skincare company, Madara. Madara is an organic skincare company with a fantastic reputation for their high-quality products. I purchased their Multi Action Micellar Water with Hyaluronic Acid. This is great for all skin types, it dissolves make up and also cleanses and tones the skin. I also picked up their Exfoliating Oil-to-Milk Scrub. This is an exfolitator which I had to try to see how it compares to other exfolitators on the market. The ability to turn from an oil to a milk is interesting! I love toners so I had to pick up their Clarifying Toner as well.  I could have bought more as their range is fantastic.

Natura Siberica is a Russian skincare and bodycare company. Their range is organic and made in the EU. I bought their Aralia Mandshurica Day Cream, which is a SPF20 cream for nutrition and hydration. Looks good and looking forward to trying it. I also picked up their Sea Buckthorn and Honey body scrub. This has an unusual and lovely scent and the colour is amazing! A bright orange  scrub. I also like the packaging.

I have purchased some Beauty Pie products and I have been impressed by the quality. I did repurchase my Superbrow Precision Pencil in ‘perfect brown’. I really do like it and at the same time, I picked a new mascara called Uber Curl Drama Mascara. I did buy one of their new products, the Pro-Glow Sculpting Face Palette. They have also brought out a skincare range and I also needed a serum and eye cream. I bought the Jeju Daily Antioxidant Superinfusion and the Plantastic Youth Guard Eye Cream, so I will see what the skincare range can do, I’m hoping it will be as good as their make up.

When in London, I managed to visit Covent Garden Ordinary pop-up store and wanted to try a few things. Unfortunately a few things I wanted to try were out of stock but I did buy the Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 serum. 

I do love Neals Yard and I have a big list of products I want to try! I needed a toner and the Purifying Palmarosa Toner and this was one from my list. I finished my Body Shop so I bought this one to try and make the list shorter!

Boots is always good for daily stuff and I bought my Sanex deodorant as always. I re-purchased my Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle. As it was on offer, I purchased Klorane’s Mango Shampoo and conditioner as they are quite expensive.

L’Oreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream is a cleanser which is so affordable and so good!  The scent is lovely and I am using it already!

I have started using some products already so over time I will review them with my thoughts.







Latest Beauty Buys!


Hi Everybody,

When I go to Boots and other stores, I’m always amazed by the number of new products that come onto the market. Every day a new product is released and it’s so hard to keep up with everything! Here a few items, old and new in the market that I have purchased lately.

I do like TK Maxx for candles. I have picked Ralph Lauren and Miller Harris candles before. This time I found Payot candles at a reasonable price. I picked up a full-size Payot Bougie Relaxante candle and the smell is a fresh, clean scent.

Infinity Foods is a wonderful organic shop in the North Laines of Brighton.  They stock a wonderful selection of products and I did pick up  Weleda’s Almond Sensitive Skin Body Wash for a fiver! It is a lovely, cream shower gel and I never go wrong with Weleda products.

Brighton’s Mark & Spencer has a larger selection of beauty products than the one on Eastbourne and is well worth a look. I found REN’s Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel in a smart travel size and is a perfect tester. They have also collaborated with the celebrated podiatrist Margaret Dabbs for a new range of feet products called Bare Feet. I picked the set that includes a foot soak, foot scrub and foot cream. I do like foot products so I am looking forward to trying this set.

Body Shop had a sale and I couldn’t resist 2 nail varnishes for £2.00 each. I choose ‘Cupid Pink’, which is a bright pink and ‘Hemp Over Heals’, an olive green colour. Perfect for Autumn!

Superdrug stock Tanya Burr products and I picked one of the It’s Kissmas lip gloss sets for Christmas. There is 2 colours. A bright pink and a suitably festive red. I have tried and quite good quality and very reasonably priced.

Holland & Barrett stock essential oils  so I purchased Pine and Rose essential oils as I am thinking of doing some beauty experiments in the kitchen! I will keep you informed..

Now onto Boots, my favourite shop. I keep meaning to buy a Real Techniques complexion sponge. I have never used a sponge and I have just started to use it so I will post my thoughts later. I picked up Maybelline’s new mascara, Falsies Push Up Drama.

My husband has been reading with me Salli Hughes Fabulous new book, Pretty Iconic. He surprised me one day and did a beauty mini haul shop for me! I purchased Palmer’s Original Cocoa Butter.  It smells of chocolate, looking forward to trying this! He also purchased Ponds Cold Cream, beloved by so many people and I am looking forward to trying this as well to see what it can do for me!
