Smoothie Star Deep Moisture Body Milk - Moisturising is no longer a chore for me and to say that is quite an achievement! Smoothie Star has a lovely light formula & smells divine which really encourages me to stop being so lazy and moisturise every day. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - I absolutely hate having blackheads & excess oil around my nose and chin, but I've never really found anything that is good at combating this problem. I've been using this morning and night after I've cleansed & toned & I've honestly seen amazing results. My pores are refined and seem to be less clogged up than usual, plus Effaclar Duo is great as a makeup base. 

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint 'Prickly Pear' - I'd been after a pastel lilac nail polish for ages as it seemed to be the only colour missing from my ridiculous collection and when I saw Barry M had a 3 for 2 offer I decided to try the Hi Shine Gel Effect polishes that a few beauty gurus had raved about! The polish applies well and definitely has a glossy shine to it, which is achieved with only one coat although I do prefer two because the colour isn't opaque enough.  

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation '010 Light Porcelain' - My Revlon PhotoReady foundation is almost finished and I needed a cheaper foundation to use everyday rather than my YSL touche eclat foundation so when I saw this for only £5 I couldn't leave it behind. The shade is a really good match for my ghostly complexion, coverage is medium and it has a dewy finish, all features I look for in a foundation!

LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub - Religiously found myself reaching for this handy little scrub throughout January. My lips have been so thankful for this delicious product!

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic - This little tonic spritzer was included in the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish set I picked up in John Lewis a few weeks ago. I use this after I've cleansed my face with C&P by spraying some on to a cotton pad and wiping it all over my face. My skin feels refreshed and revitalised, ready for the next stage of my skincare & makeup application if I'm using it in the morning.

  8. I've been using that Rimmel foundation too, I'm very impressed! It feels really good quality, and it reminds me of Revlon's Photo Ready but about £5 cheaper. I love the colour of the nail polish too!

  9. I really want to try La Rouche Posay Effaclar Duo I've read so many amazing reviews. Do you use this instead of a moisturiser? X

    1. I use this after I've cleansed and toned my face in the evening before bed & then I use it as a base for makeup but I also apply a little moisturiser too, I don't really know the proper way to use it tbh! X
