So lately my wallet has been a hellova lot fuller and I have been treating myself to new products and branching out from my usual purchases into the unknown. Realistically I should be saving but I thought screw it lets go forth and shop! It is always exciting to try out new products and discover something that becomes a staple part of your beauty routine.
Like most of you I think, I base a great deal of my purchases on reviews from online beauty bloggers and youtubers because they give you an honest review which is so important when you are forking out for expensive products or simply want a good opinion on something you want to try out. Lately I have bought some new prettys, most in use, some waiting on the wings - those ones I am especially psyched about! I will try not to ramble but I probably will so I apologise in advance! I hope ye find it helpful come pay day when you 'need' to buy that amazing face serum etc!
First off is haircare. Now like most I have my hair dyed and like most I have some lowlights/balayage blondiness goin' on. And like most (yes I've said that 3 times now) I suffer from dry hair which ain't pretty. So I decided that colour conditioner wasn't enough and invested in some (1) Hair Xpertise Argan oil. Boy was I not disappointed. Since using it over the past two weeks I have been asked 3 times have I redone my hair - success! This oil is a little miracle worker, not only does it soften your hair it also gives it a healthy shimmer especially to straightened hair. I have been using this and my (2) Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (wow mouthful) sporadically depending on my mood i.e. whether I want my mane wavy/straight. This texturising spray is brilliant; it volumises and helps your natural waves/curls to develop without clogging up and weighing down the hair. It doesn't have an over powering odour and a little goes a long way. An excellent product for anyone to have which doesn't break the bank.
I recently invested in a new under eye cream and chose a (3) La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Eyes product thanks to my partner in crime Aoife. I have previously used this skincare line and have always found it suits my skin well (dry/very dry). I was using an Origins eyecream but....it fell down the toilet. Yes I know how did that happen you ask?! Bad reflexes I'm afraid. I was pretty gutted as there was a THIRD left in the little pot but enough about that...more about La Roche-Posay. I have noticed a marked difference in my under eye bags thanks to this. They are less pronounced after using it in the mornings and a TINY bit is enough for each eye as it spreads easily. My makeup hasn't been caked under my eyes either even after 13/14 hours of wear which shows the quality of the eye cream. Still in the early stages of use I would highly recommend this product as it has firmly replaced my Origins eye cream.
The (4) Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum and the (5) iwhite Instant Teeth Whitening kit are very recent buys (literally this week) so they have yet to be cracked open. I am excited about trying these out as I have heard rave reviews from various bloggers about this little Estée Lauder gem and I am DYING to whiten my teeth. This has been getting me down lately and I cannot wait to see the results!
Hope ye found my little review as such interesting/helpful/not too annoying and I would love if ye gave me a little incite into whats rocking ye're beauty world!
Have a lovely weekend!
