Day 13 Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Shampoo

My hair has been through the dry, damaged stages of winter so I need all the TLC I can get, this shampoo gently cleanses my hair and scalp with ingredients Camellia Oil to condition my dry hair and White Tea Extract being the main ingredient to help restore my hair to look healthy and encourage hair growth.

Day 14 Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser
I used to own this in full size which is in a skincare routine post I did last year here. I’m glad I got a little travel size again though because since using it, it’s made me realise how much I love the cream and the smell. If you love the smell of citrus and oranges then give this a go as it’s suited to all skin types and keeps my face moisturised all day.

Day 15 Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil
I’ve used Nuxe oils before they are all designed for multi-use for hair, face & body, these oil’s just work wonders at adding shine and moisture. This version is aimed for adding a healthy glow to your skin. Yes you can see little bits of shimmer but I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’s a fake tan as I saw little change to my skin colour. I will be saving this for when we eventually have summer though and see how it looks then.

Day 16 Pur Minerals Impact Plus Mascara
If you’re after really natural looking lashes with a bit of length added then this is the perfect mascara, no clumping with just one coat. It’s 100% cruelty, gluten and vegan free and suitable for sensitive skin which means this hasn’t irritated my eyes. This would be a perfect mascara to apply with false eyelashes.

Day 17 Bellapierre Cosmetics Gel Eye Liner – Ebony
I used this eyeliner on the weekend on my waterline and I was very impressed to see that it was still there at the end of the day. It’s waterproof which is always a good thing if your eyes water a lot and isn’t like a regular kohl liner because it’s a gel pencil which helps with it being so long lasting, if you want to create a smokey smudge line then you can achieve this by smudging it with a brush which I like to do sometimes.

Day 18 CODAGE Micro-Peeling Mask
Masks are always a favourite of mine because I love a good pamper, this mask appears clear which I didn’t really like as I like to see where I’ve applied but after 15 minutes it didn’t make my skin feel all tight and I noticed a difference as it cleared away the impurities and left my skin looking fresh.


Day 19 Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
The dark circles, tired eyes are creeping in but thanks to this eye cream every morning my eye area appears more brightened and leaves behind a smooth base for applying my concealer, I’ve enjoyed using this cream every day since but it’s finally come to an end as it was only a sample size.

Day 20 Redken One United Multi-Benefit Treatment
Something my hair craves the most is conditioners and sometimes a leave in conditioner spray is all I need with the added benefit of detangling my wet hair. After using this spray my hair feels softer and easy to manage.

Day 21 Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
A product which is something I’ve never experienced before, a powder which turns to paste when mixed with wet hands is great at gently exfoliating the dead skin away leaving my face to feel smoother. Although I’m not really a fan of this powder paste formula I can’t see myself purchasing the full-size version.

Day 22 Molton Brown Pink Peppermint Body Wash
Milton Brown are known for their well-scented soaps & body washes so it’s always nice to have a little pamper with a luxury shower gel, this lathers up really nicely leaving behind a seasonal pink peppermint scent, for me though I personally won’t be buying this full size mainly because of the price as Lush do strongly scented shower gels for half the price but it’s personal preference I suppose.

Day 23 Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths
I’m not really a fan of face wipes after using only face wipes to remove my make up years ago this method is just something I stay away from now. I haven’t been using this to remove my make up but more of a second cleanser or to freshen up and the first thing I love about using this is the orangey scent which is very similar Origins Gin Zing range, I didn’t find these wipes at all drying so they are good for sensitive skin. My skin felt lovely and glowy after using these.

Day 24 Look Good Feel Better Eye Shading Brush
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with this brush but it’s been made all for a good cause as Look Feel Good are a charity that works with women suffering from cancer. Some days when I use this brush I find the bristle are just a bit rough on my lids and doesn’t blend as well, it’s probably me just being fussy and everyone who uses this brush loves it but that’s just my experience with this.

Day 25 Illamasqua Look Fantastic Exclusive Palette
Merry Christmas indeed! when I opened this window how I was surprised to see a full sized exclusive to Look Fantastic warm toned eyeshadow quad, this is such a beaut and I’m happy I can actually wear all these shades. I wore this over the winter period and they are so pigmented and blend really well, really really happy with this.
