I’m pretty sure it comes across that I’m a shopaholic sometimes but that’s probably but that’s only a half truth. I tend to go on shopping splurges once in a while because I run out of stuff but then I also have to buy lots of stuff for work so it just feels like I’m shopping all the time, though this year I have kind of treated myself a little more that usual. The worse time is walking into TK Maxx when they’ve just had a new shipment of beauty products in, I’m a sucker for beauty products, not that you could tell because half the time I cannot be bothered to put my face on!
My skin has been feeling a little tired lately, stress of trying to get finish up my epic stock clear out and use up old stuff and pack the shop out ready for busy season (which has been done), poorly family member’s (who are now on the mend) has resulted in a crappy diet and lack of sleep over the last few months and it’s showing in my skin.
I popped into TK Maxx and was having a browse and decided to try out some more beauty products. I opted for some Rose themed products mainly because I love the smell of roses and it’s also supposed to help brighten up tired skin. I already use Boot’s rosewater and glycerine toner daily which is fab and fairly cheap. I Hibiscus and Rose bath bomb bar was at the counter and I actually picked it up thinking it was chocolate at first but it smells lush, so it’s waiting for when I actually decide to chill out and have a relaxing bath!
Not one to be ever suckered in by pretty packaging and the promise of rejuvenated skin, I spent a little more on this than I would normally for a face cream. The serum is dispensed by a little pippet as you only need a few tiny drops for your face and neck. It’s silky smooth and has nice matt finish and soaks into the skin really well. It also leaves a lively light rose scent, so for £12.99 I’m not grumbling, in fact I might be hunting this out again.
I’ve been look for a face sponge/exfoliator for a while now that I’m stopping using exfoliating face washes because they contain plastic beads. So I picked up this Konjac Sponge for £3.99. This sponge is made of natural vegetable fibres, it’s very soft on the skin and therefore can be used daily and lasts about 3 months, so I might go back and stock up on some more.
I’m a bit obsessed with face masks at the moment and have stocked up on loads to test drive, especially as my skin suffers so much in the colder months. These ones came with five in a box for £4.99.
I also opted for some vitamin c masks because I’m planning on having a weekly face mask session because well I can and I want to and now winter is coming, I can finally get back to using all those saved up lush bath bombs and get back to my weekly soak in a hot bath, slap on a face mask and read a book!
Also made some random purchases off the clearance shelf. I’m not sure what possessed me to buy false eyelashes especially with my fear of gluing my eyes shut!
But this Tarina Tarantino under eye brightener is the bomb! (do people even say that any more, I’m showing my age aren’t I?) Anyway this Eye Dream Hyperlight combats my tired baggy eyes no end and is now my go to under eye highlighter. I think was about a fiver, I’ve lost the receipt but it was worth it whatever it was.
We don’t have Sephora over here, well I think there’s an outlet shop somewhere but generally if you want Sephore products, you either need to buy online or stock up when your abroad. So I stocked up a few face and eye masks this time, probably a little too many because my French is rubbish and I’m typically British when it comes to these things and was just like yes I’ll take all of them to be polite! I have yet to try these ones out because I have a stack of face mask packs to get through, so we’ll ahve to wait and see what they’re like.
Oh but before I go I left these little wonders behind! You may have caught my what the hell are these moment on either Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram because basically I’m a child and found these hilarious. Though I have it on good authority that the Hellpore mask for the same range is brilliant.
So I don’t know whether beauty products will feature to much on here but I have some Kat Von D eyeliner and lipstick I bought in April to still test out and some new Lime Crime Lipsticks, so there maybe a few more posts!
