New Skincare Additions

I've been really getting into skincare lately. My skin has never been bad, but I know that it could definitely be better. Even though I don't have particularly sensitive skin I always get a bit nervous trying new products so I always do a lot of research reading blogs before I buy things. I haven't used these products much so this is more of a haul with a first impression of a few thrown in there.

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
I've been looking at buying a lip scrub in ages and so many people seem to love this. Firstly, it's edible which is amazing. It also smells really really good. And obviously it's a really good lip scrub too!

Origins Clear Improvement Mask
I haven't tried this yet, but I have been getting really congested skin on my forehead and the sales assistant at Origins recommended this. I've read lots of really positive reviews about it so I'm excited to try it. I'm sure it will pop up in another post soon.

Origins GinZing Moisturiser
This moisturiser smells really lovely. It's very light weight but still really hydrating. I've only used it a few times, so I've not got an opinion on it quite yet. But so far so good!

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
I had been contemplating buying the Emma Hardie Cleansing balm but it is really pricey. Then I read Caroline Hirons and Ruth from A Model Recommends reviews on this balm and I was sold! I really trust the opinion of both these women and Caroline even said it was a dupe for the Emma Hardie. It doesn't really have any scent but this is great for people with sensitive skin. I'm also yet to try this, so keep a look out for a review soon!

I seem to be a bit addicted to buying skincare at the moment, so send in your recommendations!!

  4. I've been using the Clinique Cleanisng Balm for about 3/4 weeks now and it's so good! Removes all traces of make-up and feels lovely on the skin. I also use the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - it definitely prevents those dreaded dry autumn lips xx
