I have been spending all the money lately and one of my favourite places to splash the cash is TK Maxx because they have some epic deals. Stupidly, I took all the labels off on the actual products so I can't tell you how much I saved. I know everything was under £10. So let's just jump into what I bought and see if I can give you some mini reviews as we go through everything as I have tried everything. Some items, like the Kale Clay Fix mask, only once so I will revisit them in future posts.
Skin Food Nourishing Moisturiser (£10.96 - Amazon, £3 - TK Maxx) I really need a good moisturiser, why is it so hard for me to find one? The term "nourishing" really speaks to me, I thought it would be lightweight and extremely hydrating but it is thick and feels like a Nivea hand cream. Do not recommend at all, sorry. I do love the name of the brand though, think it is really clever. Please leave your favourite moisturisers in the comments because I can't find one.
Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Exfoliating Face Wash (£3 - Tesco) I really love this face wash, it has a beady consistency which is super gentle on my skin and removes my makeup really well just on its own. I love the way this feels on my skin, it isn't drying at all and my face just feels smooth, fresh and clean after use. Great product.
Nip + Fab Kale Fix Clay Mask (£13 - Nip + Fab, £8 - TK Maxx) As mentioned, I have only used this once which isn't enough time to form a solid opinion. So far, I don't hate it. It is for tired skin. I didn't notice a massive different after using it, but it is thin and lightweight with a nice healthy smell. It has some nice ingredients in it like Kaolin, Witch Hazel and Sweet Almond Oil but it also has fragrance (parfum) and a lot of chemical sounding ingredients. I prefer masks that are mostly natural to be honest, but that might just be me. I will try this a few more times and review properly in due course.
Good Things Argan Oil Perfecting Face Oil (£7 - Boots, £4 - TK Maxx) Honestly, I purchased this because I needed a less expensive beauty oil to mix with my foundation. I have used it as a skincare item and find that this would be best for people with quite dry skin. My skin sometimes can become dry, usually due to a product on trial that pisses my skin right off, so I love having this on hand. It is not as luxurious as other oils I have used and hasn't wowed me, but it is good in a pinch and works fabulously mixed in with my foundation to make it look smooth and silky on my skin. Yes Gawd.
Nivea In Shower Firming Moisturiser (£3.35 - Superdrug) I have tried the blue version of this before and it is running out, so I picked up a new one when I found that it was discounted. I joined a gym so anything firming is right up my street. It's very hydrating and I have been using it on and off for a few weeks now, I don't notice a lot of firming but that might come with time.
Nip + Fab Yoga Blend Body Scrub (£10 - Nip + Fab, £8 - TK Maxx) This is amazing after a sweaty gym session. So relaxing, I love the scent of lavender and find it refreshing yet calming at the same time. A great way to end the day, It's not too rough either, a great exfoliator that moisturises and smells like a gorgeous mix of lavender, coconut and rose. Love this, will definitely repurchase.
