Favourite new beauty additions.

I recently bought a few bits and pieces from the Body Shop after they had an online offer on of spend £40 and save £20. I couldn't really say no to this so decided to snap up a few key skincare pieces. One of which was the camomile make up remover. I've seen loads of bloggers rave about this product so I thought I would have to give it a go. Truth be told that before I bought this I didn't own any kind of make up remover product and have simply used face cleansing wipes to remove make up and then wash my face with face wash to remove any residue. However, this has been wrecking my face and leaving it pretty sensitive amongst yanking a few eyelashes out in the process, I decided this needed to stop hence the purchase. It's simply amazing! Apply a small amount of the product on to a cotton wool ball and wipe your mascara off with a few wipes. Brilliant. I've also been using this to remove lipstick as well as some lipsticks stain quite heavily and when washed off leave quite a lot of staining to my lip area. I'm so happy with this product!

Another product I've been using a lot lately is the Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer. I'm funny about changing up my skincare regime as I have really sensitive skin and often when I try new products I have allergies around my area which cause them to swell and water, it's pretty nasty and equally as annoying! After seeing that they had released the product for dry and sensitive skin I thought I would give it a try. Another product which I had managed to avoid the blogger hype until now. I picked this up on offer from Boots for £3.99 so I didn't mind so much if it didn't work. And it does work! I'm so happy about that. If I'm wearing make up that day I will avoid moisturising and apply this instead. It soaks in lovely and leaves my skin feeling hydrated without feeling oily and leaves a really nice primed base for my foundation. 

These two will definitely be on my repurchasing list!


  1. I very nearly got the Nivea Express Hydration Primer not long back when I was in town. I wasn't too sure if it'd be any good but after reading this I may purchase it :) Raspberrykiss xo

    1. It's really good, normally I'm straight up with blogger hype but for some reason I restricted myself this time. I wish I'd bought it earlier! x
