A Mini May Favourites

Caudalie Grape Water - I have the Beauty Elixer from Caudalie but was curious to see what this was as I had heard that it was even better for cheaper?! I'm not sure about those claims as it is only a facial mist and has as far as I can see only 2 ingredients (Fruit water and Grape juice (but with fancier names)). This however has been my go to product this week, as I'm sure the whole world knows by now England has been shockingly hot and I for one am not a big fan of melting so this has come in handy! It is instantly cooling, soothing and refreshing on uncomfortably hot skin. I've literally been spraying this top to toe and sighing in happiness as it cools me down. 

Clarins Wake-Up Booster - I have the whole clarins energizer range now and really love it but this is my favourite! I plan on reviewing it fully in the next week as it deserves it's own post! I use this in the mornings as a toner and it smells amazing, plus it makes my skin (and me!) feel more awake... probably because of the fancy coffee extracts? 

H&M 99p nail polish - I have the shades Coral Rose, Lime and Purple Glitter (very imaginative!) and for 99p there's not really much to fault. The shades are lovely, Purple glitter is my favourite and it's practically opaque in one impressive coat. I have quite strong nails so polish doesn't chip too easily on me, I got an easy 5 days wear out of Lime without a single chip before I removed it (base coat, 3 coats and a top coat) Not bad for 99p!

Inika Organic Eye Liner - I received this in Aprils Glossybox and was so pleased with it! I love a good black eye liner, I can't go without them. My face feels naked without a dark line on my waterline! (I'm deadly serious here people...) Bonus points for that line on my face being organic and cruelty free too! It doesn't drag at all either and has pretty good lasting power without smudging.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush - Where has this brush been all my life? That is all.

Have you been loving any of these products this month, or even loathing??

    The clarions range is really interesting especially as it's designed for young skin.

  5. I know! I'm really loving it at the moment :) xo

  6. Aw thank you so much! :) You should definitely hunt down the nail polish if you can, for only 99p it's a bargain :)

  7. I'm addicted to the expensive skincare recently it would seem, not good for my bank balance at all! 

  8. Jealous of you lucky duck! :P
