Review: ASOS Exclusive Nyx Cheek and Lip Duo Set

I recently treated myself to this exclusive-to-Asos Nyx set which cost £10. It is a Cheek Contour Duo Palette in the shade Cheek On Cheek and a Butter Gloss in the shade Sunday Mimosa. Both the shades look perfect for my fair skin and the contour powders are described as sheer and natural-looking which is my preference.

I went shopping at Wilko!

I recently treated myself to these great value Wilko goodies. I found some gorgeous items, particularly the Essence Rainbow Highlighter which I had been looking out for, and my whole basket totalled only £7.50.

Essence Shine and Sheer lipstick: £2
This beautiful lipstick is really a tinted lip balm: extremely moisturising and comfortable to wear, with a glossy hint of colour.

Review: Garnier Skinactive Honey Flower Range

I bought these Garnier SkinActive products myself and have been using them for over a month. This range contains 96% ingredients of natural origin with no parabens, silicones or artificial colourants. The products are all enriched with honey flower and designed for use on dry to very dry skin.

Nourishing Botanical Cleansing Milk £3.49
This cleanser dissolves makeup very gently and easily which means you do not need to rub at the skin. The whole range has a honey flower fragrance - not sickly sweet but subtle and floral. I only need to use a small amount of this on a soft cotton wool pad to cleanse my face at the end of the day, and my skin feels soothed and moisturised afterwards.

Drugstore Empties May 2017

I bought all these products myself and used them up completely. Everything here cost under £8.

Co-Op 25 Cleansing Wipes: £1
These are good quality, moisturising wipes containing soothing aloe vera. They are thick enough to cleanse my face effectively whilst feeling soft and comfortable on the skin.

Drugstore Makeup Review: Essence

I bought Essence's Satin Touch Blush and Matt Matt Matt Longlasting Lipgloss myself from Wilko, and the other products featured here were kindly sent to me. Nothing mentioned in this post costs more than £4.

Essence Volume Stylist 18 hour Lash Extension Mascara: £3
I had heard great things about Essence's mascara range but never tried one out until now. I like the chunky packaging of this Volume Stylist mascara and its textured top which allows you to get a good grip on the wand.

Review: Mediheal Sheet Masks

I bought these Korean sheet masks from TK Maxx for £1.99 each.

Pumpkin Ade Sheet Mask
These cheap and cheerful masks are made from Tencel which is a sustainable, environmentally friendly fabric similar to rayon and bamboo. You apply them for 15-20 minutes, allowing the ingredients to sink into the skin. The packaging is very appealing with the fresh, natural colours of tempting fruits and vegetables which caught my eye as I was browsing the large selection of face masks in TK Maxx.
