January Beauty Awards

Hi there! Since it’s the last day of the month, today’s post is about all the products I loved the most in January. It’s quite a few products this month. Let’s start with the Top 3, and there are a few honourable mentions further down.

3rd place – Jil Sander Simply Elixir Eau De Parfum & Rich Body Cream

Jil Sander Simply Elixir was a lovely surpise! The fragrance smells a lot more expensive that it is. You could call it a female version of Dior Fahrenheit!

Runner-Up – Agent Provocateur Fatale Intense Eau De Parfum

Fatale Intense smells like a lighter version of Angel. What a great find!

WINNER – Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner

Whilst the 2 fragrances above have really blown me away, this toner is in another dimension. I worship this toner!

Onto the honourable mentions! Skin Treats Aloe Vera Restoring Sheet Mask and Skin Treats Fennel Brightening Sheet Mask were lovely. Westlab Reviving Epsom Bath Salts are a new household favourite. And Carex’s gentle shower products definitely deserve a mention too!

Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel is a brilliant facial moisturiser, whilst Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Fragrance-Free Non-Greasy Lotion is wonderful for the body. Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss 06 Soft Almond is my current favourite lip product, and Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water is already on my list of products to buy again.

Wow, so many favourites! Have you tried any of these products? Which products have been your beauty heroes lately? Feel free to let me know via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! xo

Pure Awesomeness – Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner which I found at TK Maxx. This toner with sodium hyaluronate, lemon, lime and plenty more botanical extracts promises to remove sebum and dead skin cells, to soothe the skin and to make pores appear smaller.

I’ve been using this toner for a few weeks now, and I love it! Wow, what a product! Since this toner contains lemon and lime extracts as well as other fruit extracts, it has a brightening effect on the skin. It’s amazing! This toner has insane cleansing powers. It makes my face look and feel clean and clear, but at the same time it doesn’t feel drying at all. This is, without doubt, one of the best toners I’ve ever used!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this awesome toner. If you’re interested, Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner is available as 150ml. I paid £6 at TK Maxx.

Major Haul! Awesome New Products / Beauty Stuff I Bought In September And October

Hi there! I forgot to do a haul post last month, so today I’m showing you what I bought in September and October. 🙂

I bought a set of 5 SpaScriptions face masks – the set was £4.99. I also bought a set of 5 panda face masks – this set was £4.99 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Mask (£4), a large 1kg Kallos Multivitamin hair mask (£7.99), and a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser (£4). TK Maxx

I picked up 3 Superdrug items – a Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak (£1.47), a Glycolic Tonic (=toner) and another Glycolic Overnight Peel to replace the one I finished. The last 2 products were £5.99 each, but there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, so I paid £5.99 in total for the 2 Naturally Radiant products.

I got a few more masks – I couldn’t resist those Hunny Bee grapefruit masks (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks), and I bought another SpaScriptions mask set (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks). TK Maxx

I found an Argan & Marula shampoo and conditioner combo (99p each) and a My Little Pony shower gel (99p). Home Bargains

I got another Superfacialist Rose Hydrate product – I bought the Day Cream (£6.99), and I picked up 2 Sanctuary Spa Being fragrances (£3.75 each). And I spent £6.99 on my Superfacialist Vitamin C + Brighten night cream. TK Maxx, Boots

The Zatik Passionfruit Cacao Lotion was £5, the Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream was £6, and the Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner was £6 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a big It’s True Moisture Cream (£9.99), a Smack Beauty Firming Night Cream (£3), and another Hunny Bee mask set (£4.99 for 5 masks). TK Maxx

I got my hands on a Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil (£3), and I bought a Sukin Chia Seed Oil+ Foaming Facial Cleanser set. The set was £7.99 which is excellent value because the chia seed oil is usually £14.95 on its own! TK Maxx

And I bought 2 big jars of compressed sheet masks. These were £4.99 each. The bamboo jar contained 22 masks, the assorted jar contained 23 masks. TK Maxx

This is everything I bought in September and October. It’s quite a lot, I think. 🙂 Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
