New In #2

From beauty, haircare and skincare, here's what I've been splurging on...


Hello you! Yep, it's been a while since I did a beauty post – you can thank the woes of being a student for that. But, that does mean that since my purse strings have been tightened, my reluctance to spend and only spend on products I'm sure of means I've got some corkers for you today, and all but one of them are under £10!

The Body Shop Almond Body Yogurt.  I've been using this moisturiser for the last four months and honestly it's the best body moisturiser I've ever tried! Bonus points for the affordable price too. It has a silky gel-like consistency which means it's lightweight, never greasy and locks in moisture, leaving my skin feeling super soft and smelling divine. Plus the simple almond formula is suitable for my sensitive and eczema prone skin which has magically disappeared since I started regularly using this – coincidence orrr?

NSPA Hot Cloth Polish.  An ASDA's own beauty product? Who'd have thunk it, eh. Better still, you're looking at a brilliant dupe for the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser for just a fraction of the price. Armed with its own muslin cloth, this polish is luxuriously buttery and smells incredible. Once wiped away with the hot cloth my skin feels well cleansed but never dry. Win.

GOT2B Twisted Frizz Free Curling Mousse*.  After years of bleaching and heated stylers, my hair had had enough of me. So for the last year I've been chopping it off in an attempt to get it back to its natural and healthy self. Just about getting there, my curls are returning and need to be brought back in check. This mousse is great at giving added body without being dry or crunchy yet has enough hold to keep my curls in shape. I do use this sparingly and only through the lengths of my hair though, or I run the risk of product build up at the roots – and no gal wants that.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Dare You*.  Bit more of a splurge on this one, but I find the moisturising yet durable cremesheen formulas are worth it. Plus I'd been on the hunt for this very specific shade for a long time; it's a deep wine shade with warm/orange undertones instead of the cool/pink undertones in most burgundy shades. Lightly applied or dabbed with a finger it can pass as a berry stain, or go heavy straight from the bullet for a vampy look. That versatility is what I'm all about. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational in Intense Black*.  I had success with the waterproof version of this formula when it was first released a few years back, but somehow forgot about it with numerous new releases. After doing the circuits, looking for a mascara that was easier to remove for everyday, I decided to come back and try the intense formula. Suffice to say I made the right move. The unique plastic wand grabs every tiny lash in jet black and keeps them lifted but never clumpy. It's cult for a reason.
