January is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. I am using this opportunity to not just make some lifestyle changes, but also some beauty changes… Here are some bits that are new to me in 2018 that I can’t get enough of at the moment that I picked up on Fragrance Direct!
So, this is a product that I’ve heard a lot about in the YouTube community but had no idea if I’d love
or hate. These are the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blushes, and this one is in the shade ‘Icing’ – a beautiful, pearlescent pink. I’m not overly fond of liquid face products – be that highlighters, bronzers or blushes – but so many people rave about the Watercolour Blushes that when I saw them on Fragrance Direct for only £13, I decided it was worth the plunge. Liquid face products are completely new territory for me but I am obsessed with this one. It’s got such a lovely sheen to it – kind of like a highlighter cross blush – and makes me look so alive. It’s also incredibly sheer and buildable so it’s really easy to work with meaning you can easily avoid looking like a clown. I think this is going to be an absolute staple for me as we’re coming into spring time as it makes me look so fresh, alive and dewy.
The Clinique Take The Day Off Make Up Remover is one that I’ve heard everyone rave about. It’s one I’ve heard talked about all over the internet but I’ve just never picked up – mostly because I assumed that my Nivea remover could do the same job but at a fraction of the price. However, I was wrong. You barely even need to rub your eye or lips to remove even the toughest of mascaras or liquid lips. For me, this is amazing as sometimes when I take my eye make up off I find it that my eyes can become irritated from excess rubbing. However, with the Clinique one, it’s extremely gentle and there’s no chance of sensitivity or redness. The only thing I don’t like about this product is the lid. It’s got a child-proof lid and, well, it turns out that I’m clearly a child as I can literally never open this by myself. This is currently £15.15 on Fragrance Direct, saving you £1.75, and I highly recommend picking it up.
Elemis have been on my list of ‘to-try’ brands for ever. I was in the market for a new face wash so when I saw the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash on Fragrance Direct for only £21 when it retails at £30, I knew that this was the perfect time to try it. First off, this stuff smells absolutely divine. It’s not strongly scented so won’t irritate sensitive skin and is very gentle as exfoliants go. Elemis say that this is for “dull, uneven skin” which is definitely something I’ve been suffering from in the last couple of weeks. I think it might just be my skin adjusting to Christmas and the obscene amount of rubbish I ate over that period and the large amount of gin and tonics I consumed. However, this wash really seems to be working. I use it morning and evening and it makes my skin feel so lovely and soft after use.
