Do you ever do that thing where you go online with the intention of buying just one thing? One thing. Then in order to get free delivery you have to meet a minimum requirement, in this case £15, and the next thing you know you’ve spent £54.50 on 3 items only, when all you wanted was one £10 item. . . this is why I can’t have nice things. I know you’ve been there. Every time. It happens every single time.
It all started with the Milani 2 in 1 Conceal & Perfect Foundation (£10). Everyone everywhere seems to rave about this foundation, not only my favourite bloggers (like Glam Life Guru) but also makeup artists. The one problem is just trying to find the right shade, Beauty Bay recently restocked all the shades so after watching countless YouTube reviews and scrutinising swatches on Google Images I decided on the shade Sand described as being “for medium skin tones with neutral undertones”. I actually have warm undertones so Sand Beige was what I would have initially went for, however, it seems a little dark for my skin especially with winter coming. #WinterIsComing
So as discussed earlier, I was £5 away from the £15 Free Express Delivery threshold so naturally I pick up products I have had my eye on. Recently, I have been so excited about trying new skincare products. I really want to find the perfect skincare routine because my skin is all over the place. These are two totally new brands to me, although I have heard of them I have never tried anything from either Pai or First Aid Beauty, but both items had exceedingly good (sorry Mr Kipling) reviews.
Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit and Seed Oil (£22) This oil has brilliant reviews on Beauty Bay, from all skin types. If I am honest I saw a beautiful photo of this oil on Twitter and just felt like I needed it in my life. In addition, my current go-to oil is almost done so I am in need. Oils are very popular and there are plenty of articles discussing what oils are best and I think rosehip oil is supposed to be phenomenal for your skin. I am so excited to try this.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Overnight Mask (£22.50). I was keen to try this product because I love face masks and the idea of something working overnight to make me look like I got a full night’s sleep sounds like the answer to all my prayers. As someone who has trouble getting the requisite amount of sleep, I am all for products that can fake that well rested look.
Thank you so much for reading about this little haul. Stay tuned for some full reviews. In the meantime let me know what you have your eye on too. There's so many great products out there. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to attack the week ahead. Make me proud. Take care.
What is the next thing you want to buy?
