Last week was spent in gorgeous Somerset. As a known over-packer, my friends warned me to not go overboard. Believe me this was no easy feat! Everytime I took something out, I put two things in. After a lot of consideration and willpower, this is what I ended up with.
L'Oreal Ever Riche shampoo and conditioner- The most perfect affordable deep conditioning duo I've ever tried. This has been a firm favourite since it's release. Such a gorgeous scent too.
Kerastase Nectar Thermique- A heat protection blow dry lotion that gives my hair a lovely smooth finish. Kerastase is my ultimate hair luxury, such a treat.
Batiste dry shampoo- Representing the lazy girls.
Vaseline Spray and Go- It's not the most moisturising thing that I have ever used but props for the ease!
Wilko shower gel in rhubarb and vanilla- Pretty self explanatory really, but that scent... it's what dreams are made of. It smells just like rhubarb and custard sweets. It smells good enough to eat, believe me I've been tempted from time to time.
Origins Drink Up mask- One of my holy grail face masks right here boys and girls. A moisturising mask is a must for me when on holiday, as the sun can be quite harsh on your skin so an extra boost of moistrue never goes a miss.
Garnier micellar water- I always like to remove the bulk of my makeup with a micellar water before doing a proper cleanse, or my skin has a full on freak out. This is a decent Bioderma dupe.
Clarins Take The Day Off cleansing oil- This my new fave. It's relatively new and trust me when I tell you that you need it! I bloomin' love a cleansing oil and this is a fantastic offering. It leaves the skin completely cleansed without feeling stripped and tight. I popped 5 days worth into a travel size squirty bottle thingy ma jig.
Clarins Lotus oil- My SOS product, I couldn't live without it. Everytime I have a skin nightmare, this saves me and banishes all those pesky blemishes.
Clarins Gentle Exfoliating toner- This is highly raved about and rightly so. It is great for evening out skin tone, texture and helps reduce the size of blemishes. What more could you want?
La Roche Posay Toleriane- This is such a lovely simple moisturiser that can be used both morning and night.
Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado- I have been using this since the beginning of July and I am already noticing a huge difference. It's a nice compromise between a gel and a thick cream, perfect for summer.
Nuxe Reve De Miel- Best lip balm ever...SIMPLE.
Razor- Yanno, just cuz.
