3rd place – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Daily Defense’s Macadamia Oil hair products are brilliant!

Runner-Up – Boots Ingredients Cleansing & Purifying Sheet Face Mask With Charcoal & Willow Bark

This face mask from Boots is really powerful! I’ll use it regularly from now on!

This face mask is a revelation. 11 stars!

Onto the honourable mentions! Imperial Leather’s Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance shower gels are wonderful. Montagne Jeunesse’s purple face masks are all-time favourites. And the Sanctuary Spa’s Intensive Heel Balm is a new favourite!

100% Awesome – The Crème Shop Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop’s Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask. This sheet promises to draw out toxins to make skin appear purified and clear. It also claims to have antibacterial and brightening properties.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask is supposed to be left on for 20-30 minutes – or until it’s completely dry. Any excess serum should be massaged into the skin (face AND neck).

I always leave sheet masks on until they’re perfectly dry. Sometimes this can take an hour – but that’s OK. Sheet masks are for evenings, weekends and days off! I also don’t ‘waste’ the excess serum that’s left in the sachet. I just pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet – the new sheet mask will then absorb the excess serum, and I get another sheet mask that’s dripping with serum for free!

So what about the mask? This mask is simply sensational. It gave me incredible results after a single use. The mask made my skin feel deeply cleansed and refreshed. And it made my skin tone look perfectly even and insanely bright. This mask has set new standards because I still cannot believe what a difference it made. 24 hours ago I couldn’t have imagined that my skin could look half as good as it looks now. I am completely over the moon!

I would recommend this mask to anyone who’s looking for a product that brightens skin and evens out skin tone. If you want instant results, this mask is your cheapest and most effective option!

The Crème Shop’s Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Masks are £4.99 for a pack of 5 masks (TK Maxx). Outstanding value! 11 stars!

Haul! Nail Polish, Skin, Body & Hair Care, Korean Beauty, Sheet Masks, Scinic, Ciaté, L’Oréal, MoYou London, Revlon, Aussie & Many More!

Hi there! Today’s post is about the products I bought in November and December 2017. Well, it’s about most of the products I bought. I forgot to take pictures of a few things before I stashed them away… Anyway, let me show you the products I remembered to photograph. 🙂

1 Cellio It’s True Moisture Skin Pearl (£6) – this is, apparently, a toner. I’m looking forward to trying it.

2 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apricot (£4) – this is my 4th product from this brand. I can’t wait to give it a try!

3 Scinic Honey All In One Ampoule (£12.99) – I can’t believe it’s mine! Finally! At the moment I’m using Scinic’s Aqua Ampoule, so this one will have to wait…

4 The Crème Shop – Charcoal & Lemonade Fusion Sheet Masks (£4.99 for a pack of 5 masks) – I’ve already used one of these masks and I’ll post the review in a couple of days.

5 Luxe Beauty Care Charcoal Spa Treatment Mask (£4.99 for a pack of 5 masks) – I bought these because they looked similar to these fantastic masks. I’ll try to test and review these masks asap!

6 Cellio It’s True Moisture Cream (£8) – the awesome packaging lured me in. And I love that this skin care range is called “It’s True”.

7 Cellio It’s True Deep Cleansing & Massage Cream (£6) – this one looks awesome too!

8- 10 Radox Feel Free, Feel Lively & Feel Fresh (£1.48 each, photo deleted by accident) – I’ve never tried these shower gels, and when I spotted them for half price, I thought “why not”. 🙂

11 – 13 Superdrug Face Masks – 99p each with a 3 for 2 offer. 🙂

14 L’Oréal Multi-Masking Play Kit – this was £3.50 for 3 x 10ml which, I think, is good value. In addition, this set gives me the chance to try these L’Oréal masks without having to commit to buying 3 full-sized jars. 🙂

15 + 16 TRESemmé Colour Shampoo & Conditioner – these were £2.69 each (half price offer).

17- 21 MoYou London Stamping Plates (Sci-Fi 4 + 7, Hipster 18, Rebel 6 + 7) – these were between £4.50 and £5.99 with an additional 20% discount. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

22 – 25 Aussie Mega Shampoo & Conditioner, Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner – these were £1.95 each (half price offer).

26 Boots Time Delay Wrinkle Reduce Collage Boosting Wrinkle Filler – this was £5 only. Apparently the entire Time Delay collection is getting a makeover, so everything’s on special!

27 + 28 Revlon 050 White On White – I always pick up clear and white polishes from Poundworld and the likes. These were £1 each!

29 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this was £3 only!

30 Ciaté Mini Mani Month 2017 – this is £50 on Ciaté’s web site, but I got this for £13. The box was a little damaged, and I guess this is why they reduced the price, but all the seals were still intact, so I knew there weren’t any polishes misisng. 🙂

How pretty are those polishes?!

This is most of what I bought in November and December. But I’m sure I’ll buy a few more bits and bobs on Boxing Day… Anyway, have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!
