Loving Lately #12

After forgetting to post a Loving Lately last week, this is combined favourites of the past two weeks (luckily I took the photo in advance when the sun was shining!). This week has been pretty grey and miserable for the most part so I've not been all that adventurous on the beauty front.

I recently picked up the new Schwarzkopf Texturising Salt Spray as it was on offer for only £3 in boots because 1) I need texture in my boring thick flat hair, and 2) I was excited because it's brand new & I'm a fan of some of their other hair bits, mainly the dry shampoo. I really like it, I was a little put off at first because the spray is terrible, but I've discovered spraying it into my hand and scrunching it into my hair works well. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or heavy in any way, just adds a little definition where I want it.

Next up I have been loving the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Purifying Cleansing Wash, I bought this quite a few weeks ago now and I'm shocked it hasn't been mentioned yet! I've been using this in the shower with my clarisonic for a really deep clean a couple of times a week. Warning! this stuff foams up like nothing else (amazing seeing as it's SLS free) and I end up having to hold my breath to avoid breathing in bubbles sometimes! I've also been using this as a second cleanse after my EH balm to leave my skin squeaky clean. It's non drying and helps keep breakouts at bay with salicylic acid. I'm really impressed and want to try more from the range.

Lastly is a mascara, I know... crazy! Are you reading the right blog? I always moan that I can never find mascara for me and my sensitive eyes (that also doesn't smudge onto my glasses throughout the day), well ladies and gentlemen, I've found one. I got this little mini No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara in a GWP at christmas time and it's just been sitting in my makeup bag ever since. I gave it a go last week and have been hooked ever since. I can't tell it's there, no itchiness, no flaking. It has a fancy 3 way brush that I pay no attention to but hey, I'm happy. Leave me be. I would consider buying this full size, now that's a commitment!
