Beauty Favourites #18


I've been a bit behind on beauty posts recently, as, well, I rarely wear makeup. Working from home means I slap on a full face maybe once a week, but I promise to get my testing hat on very soon and endeavour to bring you more beauty content from this moment forth. Anyway, you know the drill: 

Glossier exfoliating skin perfector solution 

B U Y   H E R E | Yes, Glossier have brought out their own acid toner which, to be honest, I'm surprised they didn't launch with. It's a mix of AHA, BHA and PHA so you get a range of acids in there. I've been testing it out for the last few days and, although it's early to throw it in a favourites, I'm including it here because it hasn't broken me out. Nearly every other acid toner I've tried has (usually across my cheeks), but this has been a-ok and my skin is glowing already. I'll check back in in a month and let you know how my skin has been! Oh and if you want 10% off, you can get it right here

L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream

B U Y   H E R E | I was lucky enough to get one of those amazing L'Occitane advent calendars last December and this was in there. I've been applying it before bed every night since and honestly, my paws have never been softer! It smells heavenly too. 

& Other Stories Mediterraneen Body Wash

Can you remember getting The Body Shop tangerine bath stuff as a kid? This is basically the grown up version of that. It smells like oranges and Mediterranean air - I know that sounds weird, but give it a sniff next time you're in the store if they still have it, as it's amazing!  


Glossier cloud paint in dusk

B U Y   H E R E | I've ranted about the Glossier Cloud Paints before (here) and this newer colour in my collection is just gorgeous. It's the ideal dirty rose shade for a barely there blush! 

NARS audacious lipstick in Lana

B U Y   H E R E | I feel like I'm going to be wearing this one a lot in S/S, as it's basically MAC Lady Danger but a million times better. Orange-red perfection!

Umberto Giannini Beach Wash Shampoo and Conditioner

B U Y   H E R E | I got these in a PR package back in Summer, but I had such a backlog of products that I only opened them in Jan (bad, I know). I wish I'd opened them sooner though as they are gorgeous! They actually make me look forward to washing my hair as they smell divine and make my hair so soft. 

NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer

B U Y   H E R E | Another one from NARS  - and one I've had before but in the totally wrong shade - but this one is perfect! I love layering this up with their Matte concealer for ultimate dark circle coverage. 

Pixi It's Eye Time Eyeshadow Palette

B U Y   H E R E | Another December discovery, but one I've been using a lot! It's just the perfect every day set of wearable, blendable shades and I adore it.
