Hi guys! Long time no talk! It feels like it anyway! This last fortnight has been hectic (work, food poisoning, lounge room ceiling floods…) but hopefully I can get back to regular posting soon! This is a bit of a collective haul, some from Brisbane, some from online shopping, and some are PR samples (clearly marked). Either way, I wanted to go through the new stuff I’ve been trying out!
The Victoria Secret Pure Seduction Body Wash, Body Spray & Body Lotion (RRP $24.00) is a fragrance set I’ve been wanting to try for ages (one of Elle Fowler‘s favourites, and we tend to have a similar taste in scents). My goodness…this is an amazing scent! Red Plum & Freesia, get on me. While I can’t particularly vouch for the nourishing goodness of these products (they are pretty standard, don’t really do much except make you smell pretty) but I will repurchase these again for the scent alone. Well worth checking out the range!
I still haven’t had a chance to try out this range of Rosehip by Essano, but I’ve tested all of them smell wise and they are amazing! I can’t wait to provide you guys with a full review to come!
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (RRP $35.00) is the styling product that you want. Nay, require. It makes the disheveled, beachy wave look oh so easy and quick. I love using this spray so much, but it is quite pricey
I am still a little on the fence with the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Nude Beige (RRP $55.00) purely because I don’t think it is worth the RRP in Australia. It’s a great lipstick no doubt, packaging is gorgeous, with a smooth, easy application and great colour pay off. But $55? For a lipstick? I’ll be waiting til I can get more affordable European or US prices before I indulge in YSL lipsticks again.
The Kerastase Dermo-Calm Range*, Kerastase Chroma Thermique Thermo Shine* and Kerastase Fibre Architecte* have been my hair care treats this month and they have improved the quality of my hair & scalp so much! If anyone is interested in a full review, let me know!
One of my all time favourite BB Creams was the Orange version of the Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream Plus (RRP $22.00) and this one is, dare I say it, better! It’s a little more blendable and not quite as thick as the orange version (perhaps because of the SPF differences? This one is SPF30+ and the orange is 50+ I think). Again, full review to come. This post is becoming a ‘review preview’ post
After ordering from Memebox, I spotted Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream (RRP $19.95) and instantly fell in love with the packaging. How can you not? It’s a freaking snail!
What have you picked up in September?
