Products I'm loving right now!

Thought I'd do a post on what beauty products I'm in love with right now, since I've found some really amazing things over the past few weeks that I thought I should share with you!

The first product is the 'Clarins Daily Energizing Cleanser':

This is probably my favourite product I've discovered this month! I've never bought anything from Clarins before, but I was shopping with one of my friends at Boots when they were promoting the 'Daily Energizers' range and we got give samples.. we got give sample sizes of the daily energizing cleanser, the daily energizing wake up booster and the daily energizing gel. I was especially exctied to hear that the range was targeted at 'younger skin' and 'radiance boosting'.. because that's exactly what I needed for my skin! I enjoyed all of the products I got given and I'm definitely planning on buying some more from this range.. But the cleanser stood out to me. For a start the smell is gorgeous. It's very fresh, and 'clean' smelling.. it's addicting! It lathers up extremely well, so you only need the tiniest amount to clean your whole face, which is great because I know it's going to last me a while.. but the biggest reason why I love this product is because it leaves my skin feeling amazing! My skin doesn't feel dry after I've cleansed it, it feels smooth, clean and moisturised. It leaves my complexion radiate and brighter after the first use, and it clears my skin up so I don't have to deal with stressful breakouts! It's £10.50 for 75ml, which I think is very reasonable considering how fantastic the product is. It's safe to say I am completely in love with this product! :-)

What it says on the box:  

The next product is a Sleek Blush in 'Pixie Pink':

I really can't get enough of this blush! As you can see it's a rather bright, true pink.. with a slight lilac undertone. The picture of the blush is pretty true to colour. I love this blush because you can wear it very sheer so it's sutible for every day, but you can then build it up for a more special occasion. It's a very versatile product. I also love the formula. The pigmentation is great, and it blends naturally on my skin. I haven't stopped wearing this blush since I got it and at £4.29 I really need to invest in some more! :-)

My last product is the 'One-by-One Volum' Express Mascara' by Maybelline New York

I've always been a fan of the Maybelline mascara's but this one is definitely my favourite! Unlike their other mascara's this one does not clump..at all. It separates my lashes very well, and no matter how many layers I apply.. it refuses to clump.It also does not collect under my eyes, which I find happens a lot with mascara's I try. I was very impressed with this product, that I've re-purchased, which doesn't happen to often when it comes to mascara's. I find it very comparable to 'Volume Million Lashes' by L'Oreal but at a much cheaper price! The usual price of this product is £8.49 but they have an offer at boots right now where you can save £2 on selected Maybelline products.. so you can pick this up at £6.49, which is a steal!

Another thing I've been loving recently, is curling my lashes. I think it makes such a big difference to how my eyes look, and it elongates my lashes, making my eyes seem wider, and in turn I look more awake. I've been using a pair from Primark which were just £1.. they do the job well, and you can't really go wrong for the price :-)

  1. I love Clarins! I don't think it gets half as much recognition as it should do.

  2. That blush looks gorgeous, like a brighter 'well dressed'!

  3. I totally agree! I really need to invest in more Clarins products!

    I am in love with the blush! I haven't stopped wearing it, and next time I go to MAC I'm thinking about picking up the well dressed blush so I'm glad you've said that :-)
