Products I have been loving

Helloo! Recently I have been trying to use up products that I own and found that I have been reaching for these quite a bit.

Products shown:

Missha Super Aqua Bergamot aroma deep sea water micro mist - wow that name was really long. This is essentially a water mist you spray onto your face whenever you feel dry or want to be refreshed. I really like this. The scent is quite subtle and soft (not really sure what bergamot is meant to smell like). As the name suggests it is a micromist so it sprays out really fine mist compared to the Avene Eau Thermale spray which tends to leave small droplets of water on my face :S

Anna Sui lip balm - This is my second tub. It smells so good! It is a very soft rose scent that is present in all Anna Sui products <3 Absolutely love this stuff. It moisturises the lips really well as well. And the lid screw on so I don't have to worry whether the tin is closed properly.

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie - I have been obsessed with berry coloured lips and nails recently. Berry Smoothie is quite sheer and has a few shimmer particles in it but they are not that noticeable on the lips. It is really moisturising as well.

L'Occitane hand cream in lavender - Love the texture of L'Occitane hand creams. This one is gel like and absorbs instantly leaving my hands really soft and smelling like lavender. I find that L'Occitane lavender scent smells nicer than Crabtree & Evelyn's lavender.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - I usually spray this when I feel tired because it has a minty sensation which helps keep me awake haha. As for the smoothing and glowing properties I can't really say I have seen much of a difference. Before this big bottle I used up 2 smaller sized ones and also could not see much of an effect. I use this for the minty sensation and scent as a pick me up really... it is pricey but I really like it for that purpose.

Pampering time

I usually try to set aside an hour or so each week to pamper myself :P

I always have a large amount of face masks on hand and like to do the whole exfoliate, cleanse, toner, serum then face masks routine. Usually if i miss a couple of weeks I find that my skin tends to look a bit dull. After a good pampering session my skin is restored to being fresh and bright :)

Ishizawa white wash foaming cleanser/mask
Jurlique herbal recovery gel
Biotherm Aquasource skin perfector exfoliating cleanser
Sukin hydrating mist toner
My Scheming Deep Cleansing mask

Essie Bikini so Teeny

Yay the weather in Melbourne is warming up :) it's time for some brighter nail colours. One of my favourites is Essie Bikini so Teeny. I just love how blue and unique this looks.
