So before you even get to peek inside this bag of treats you notice the pretty metallic rose gold makeup bag, its quite large, has two compartments  and is very well made, it would make the perfect travel makeup bag. I have no idea how Harrods have managed to squeeze all these beauty treats inside but you get up to 18 cult, luxurious and some of Harrods top selling beauty products. So many brands and products you will recognise.

A few of the items I’m most excited about are,

Rodial Dragon Blood Eye Masks Pack of 6 – I love using eye masks, they’re so good for giving your peepers a pick me up after a long flight or late night. I haven’t tried anything from Rodial but I have heard lots of good things about their Rodial range. These are designed to hydrate and refresh whilst also de puffing and giving an instantly bright eyed appearance.

Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base 5ml – I have only heard positive things about the Burberry makeup range and it always looks so beautifully packaged. This is a multi tasking base that will protect, moisturise and illuminate your complexion. It can be used alone, as a primer or blended with foundation.

By Terry Baume De Rose 3g – I have had one of these super cute mini pots before & absolutely fell for the hype. I can 100% see why this is a cult favourite in the beauty world. This lipbalm is soothing, hydrating and nourishing, so your lips are getting quite the VIP treatment with this. Its so good to have this back in my makeup bag and I am going to enjoying using it.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer 8ml – A great quality nail polish & a sweet Spring shade. This will be going straight on my toes. All I need now is for the weather to bring some sunshine & my feet will be flip flop ready.

Decléor Life Radiance – Double Radiance Scrub 15ml – A wonderful spa brand with an emphasis on quality, I have tried a few products from this brand & never been disappointed. This scrub combats dullness and restores radiance to your skin. Perfect for using during Summer when you want to wear a light base, this will help your skin look full of life & radiant.

Diptyque Roses Scented Candle 70g – This is my first Diptyque candle & its just beautiful. The scent is floral & fresh, so this is the perfect time of year to burn it. I was so very happy to see this included in the GWP. Its a mini version but still it will last a decent amount of time.

Eve Lom Cleanser & Muslin Cloth 30ml – This pioneering beauty balm was first introduced to the beauty industry 29 years ago, so it is a cult classic & very much at the forefront of balm cleansers. I am addicted to cleansing and think this will be so good at taking my makeup off and leaving my skin soft and clean.

Givenchy Phenomen’eyes Mascara 4g – This mascara has spherical brush designed to be precise and give you ultimate control over the brush. I love trying new mascaras, especially high end ones, so this is a very exciting addition to my makeup stash.

Kiehl’s Créme De Corps 30ml – I have used this quite a few times and have to say its one of the best body lotions out there. Its jam packed with so many skin beneficial ingredients including vitamins A & E, beta carotene and aloe vera. You apply this lotion to damp skin and you’re left with nourished, smooth & beautiful looking skin. This is 100% a body lotion you need to try.

Shopping With Zeek

Zeek is a free gift vouchers marketplace app that will make sure you always make good use of your vouchers. You can download Zeek via the App Store or Google Play.
With Zeek you can:

* Sell the gift vouchers or gift cards that you don’t need

* Buy gift vouchers for your favourite brands (like Amazon, Boots, Zara, John Lewis, Primark and much more) at a discount.

Zeek supports physical gift vouchers as well as electronic vouchers (e-vouchers), which can be redeemed immediately in-store and online.

So you could save a little cash buying vouchers or offload any vouchers you receive from an outlet you’re not that keen on. Its a win win, right!

Zeek Phone AppZeek Smartphone App

So when you purchase vouchers via the Zeek App you can get a great deal, many people sell their vouchers with up to 25% discounts, my vouchers were worth a face value of £56 but I paid £49. The app is also very clear at letting you know if your vouchers will be a physical card or an electronic voucher and they let you know if there is an expiry date on them, so you have all the information about the vouchers before you commit to purchasing them.

Zeek kindly gifted me £50* to spend using the App & being a beauty blogger I had to get some Boots vouchers, although I was tempted to get a John Lewis voucher. I bought 2 Boots Vouchers & they both arrived within 3 days of buying them, which I thought was very speedy & delivered via 1st class recorded mail, so secure too.

Boots Haul with Zeek

I am so excited to use the new L’Oreal La Palette Nude in Beige, I have the Rose one and although I like that one this Nude one is perfect for me. You get 10 shadows & they’re a mixture of matte and shimmer. The colours are beautiful and ideal for creating a neutral smoky eye. Its such a slim palette and you get a mirror in there too.

I have been using the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation since I bought it & I have fallen for it in a big way. I love the medium coverage it gives my skin and the velvet finish. Its so nice to apply and you need the smallest amount, it is a very thin and watery consistency and doesn’t have a pump. I wish it had a pump, but I really like this foundation and it might be the best foundation I have tried.

I had to take advantage of the Soap & Glory cleanser offer, these new 350ml sizes were only £6 and I couldn’t decide which one to buy so I had to get both. I have never tried a cleanser from them & I love that they the Peaches & Clean one has a pump, makes life so much easier. The Peaches & Clean also smells incredible and so many people on Twitter recommended that one to me. The Vitamin C one might be nice for the morning to wake my skin up.

The Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara was a total blind purchase, I haven’t read anything about it but decided the packaging looked pretty & it contains Argan Oil so its nourishing for your lashes & my lashes could use a little TLC. I have used quite a few Rimmel Mascara’s and I tend to like them so I am looking forward to using this.

I love Soap & Glory makeup, I’m getting quite a collection of their powder products. I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous WonderBronze for a while, I bought their Love At First Blush a couple of months ago & like that so I thought this bronzing one would be pretty for Summer. Even in the pan it looks so pretty.

The Bourjois CC Cream I am hoping can be my Summer Base – I am looking for something that is lightweight and evens out my skin tone and some of the imperfections. This sounds like a good bet. I have never tried a CC cream before, I love BB creams so looking forward to giving this a go

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Gorgeous Berries – I would have gladly bought any of these new blush releases from Max Factor. They’re baked and all look gorgeous, I settled for this berry coloured one and it looks so pretty on, it is so pigmented and adds not only colour to my cheeks but also a slight highlight too. I am going to wear this a lot as the weather gets warmer.

This is Rimmel Polish in Breakfast in Bed a pretty Spring shade, I love this shade of green & think it looks pretty on fingers & toes. I can’t wait to paint my nails. I like this formula and think it drys so quickly and lasts a long time on my nails. I have a few shades now and think I will pop back and get a few brighter shades, maybe an orange and a bold pink.

So that is what I bought with my Boots vouchers, let me know if you have used Zeek to either sell or treat yourself to some vouchers. I would highly recommend it & as I said it was easy to use and I’m addicted to browsing for bargain vouchers on there now, you can get some very good deals.

If you sign up using this link or use the Promo Code 2q5rjh you will get £5 towards your first voucher purchase.

Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Saviours

Origins Mega Mushroom Skincare

The Mega Mushroom range from Origins has been a favourite of mine for a couple of years. For the simple fact its hydrating, great at soothing redness and combating the effects of winter on the skin. I always turn to this range it as the temperature drops and this duo have been my skin saviours for the past few months.

The Mega Mushroom Collection has undergone some changes & is back with an even better formula

‘The Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection is developed to target irritation and boost cellular energy. These newly added and naturally-derived “miracle worker” ingredients include the powerhouse Sea Buckthorn Berry and the trio of mushrooms, Chaga, Resihi and Cordyceps. Which help promote skin’s resilience, evenness and an overall healthy appearance.’

Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum*

This serum was a new addition to the Mega Mushroom line this Summer & its been a welcomed addition to my skincare routine.

This serum looks quite thick when you first apply it but once you start to massage it in it feels cool and light on the skin. It absorbs easily and quickly without leaving a greasy residue and even leaves my skin looking slightly matte. This has that strong botanical Mega Mushroom scent, which I know is not to everyones liking but the scent doesn’t linger too long on the skin.

This serum has also been developed to help protect skin from internal and external aggressors that can lead to increased sensitivity, irritation and premature signs of ageing.

I like how smooth and hydrating this serum makes my skin feel and it sits so well under my moisturiser. I can really see a positive difference in my skin when I use it for a couple of weeks. Its packed full of the following skin benefits,

‘This potent serum is fortified with omega-rich Sea Buckthorn plus skin-repairing Reishi, irritant-soothing Chaga and Cordyceps mushrooms – long used in Chinese medicine to heal, promote longevity and improve health. Used faithfully, skin is transformed from reactive to resilient and from stressed to soothed to reveal a healthier, more radiant appearance.’

Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face*

This like the Serum also includes the new cocktail of ingredients which quiet and calm our skin to protect skin’s barrier. I find this face cream to be such an intense hydrating cream. Its very calming and it helps reduce breakouts too.

The smallest amount warmed up between your fingers would be enough to moisturise my whole face. It is targeted at people who suffer from redness and the first signs of ageing and that is me to a T.  This is not specifically a night cream but it feels so nice used as a night cream, I apply a thick layer of it on top of my serum and let it work its magic (well its not magic but science). I feel my skin looks better for using it overnight, I wake up to smooth, hydrated and radiant skin. I love it so much.

The Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection is made up of 7 products all designed to strengthen and soothe sensitive skin. Its a range I love and always go back too. I haven’t tried the whole range but I hope to try the Eye Serum & Cleanser this year.

Let me know if this is a range you’ve tried and how you got on with it.
