New In My Beauty Stash #4

new in my beauty stash May 2017

Over the past 5 weeks or so I have made a few purchases so I thought I would give you a quick low down on them.

Nip & Fab Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Sculpted £10.95

I know most of you are aware that Nip & Fab have added makeup to their range and it is available in some Superdrug stores. I was super excited to see the stand in my local store and I was very restrained to only buy one item, when I could have gone to town and bought the entire collection. I almost bought the foundation but I just couldn’t resist this beautiful 12 pan neutral eyeshadow palette, it is so ‘me’ and all the shades are ones I wear on a daily basis which means I will (and have been) get alot of use from it.

The packaging is slim, sleek and feels so nice, I like that it is clear so you’re able to see all the shadows, there is something so satisfying about that! As I said you get 12 shades and they’re a good mix of creams, deep browns and taupes. 8 of the shades matte but you also get 2 shimmers and 2 shimmer infused mattes, so a great selection.

Bath & Body Works Pocketbac in Melon Forever £2.50

I always have a couple of these hand sanitisers on the go they’re so good to pop in your handbag for keeping those pesky germs at bay. This Melon scent is from their new Summer launches and it smells damn good, a mix of sweet and fruity. Let me know what your favourite scents are, I quite often get the Warm Vanilla Sugar or anything Christmas scented.

B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes £2.99

I have bought a few products this year from the B. Pure range which is exclusive to Superdrug & I have been impressed with them all so far. These Micellar Wipes were free when I bought their Exfoliating Cleanser and I have to say as far as face wipes go these are very good. You get 25 wipes in a pack and they have a hard plastic close top which is fantastic at keeping the wipes fresh and moist for longer. The wipes are soft, fragrance free and gentle on the skin, they are enriched with Witch Hazel, Vitamin E, Aloe and Cucumber extract. So very hydrating, antibacterial and soothing for the skin. I have purchased a second pack of these because they’re super handy to have in my makeup bag. If you haven’t tried the B. Range from Superdrug then I highly recommend checking them out, they have a great selection of makeup and skincare.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser £5.99

I can’t get enough of the Superdrug own brand skincare, they have a few collections all focused on different skin concerns. This time I picked up their hot cloth cleanser which also came with a muslin cloth & it was only £4 which is an utter bargain. This has such a creamy texture which feels so nice on the skin when you’re massaging it in. It breaks down makeup with ease but I would say if you like to wear quite heavy eye makeup then you might want to go in first with an eye makeup remover as this doesn’t always remove all my mascara. Using a muslin cloth is a great way to gently exfoliate the skin without being abrasive and I love the feeling of cleansing my face using a warm cloth. The cleanser was so gentle, it didn’t sting or irritate my eyes and it left my skin feeling smooth, clean and refreshed, I might even go so far as to say radiant.

essence luminous matte bronzing powder

Essence Luminous Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 Sunshine £3.00

Essence have released some beautiful products into their Spring / Summer collection and I couldn’t leave the shop without this bronzer. This bronzer is available in two shades, I opted for the lighter of the two and it gives me that perfect mix of warm and glow. The outer bronze ring is matte and the inner ring has a subtle luminous glow. I swirl my brush so it picks up both colours and add it to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose and it leaves my skin looking healthy, bronzed but with a subtle fresh glow.

The powder feels silky smooth and it reminds me of my beloved Soap & Glory Solar Powder and it gives a very similar satin finish. As I said it has quite a subtle colour pay off which makes it a great everyday bronzer.

So those are a few new additions to my stash this month, let me know if you have tried anything from my roundup & let me know what new products you have discovered recently.

Collagenesis by Skinn Stem Rejen Facial Serum

I am excited to use this, it contains ingredients to help firm, lift and contour the skin’s appearance it is formulated with three new active ingredients: Glacier Water, Snow Algae Powder and Alp Rose. This serum sounds hydrating and just what my skins needs right now

KIKO Less is Better Eyeshadow Palette 

I’m going to be that person who declares their love for a palette that has sold out. The lovely Steph gifted me this KIKO palette which was from their recent 20th Anniversary Collection which centres around the no makeup, makeup trend. It is such a cute size and you get 9 neutral, wearable colours. They’re not all incredibly pigmented but you can build them up. I am excited to use it a little more.

New Beauty Products

Tangle Angel Detangling Brush 

If it is good enough for Kim Kardashian, the word on the grapevine is that she uses one of these Tangle Angel Brushes and she has gorgeous hair. The Tangle Angel brush has flexible detangling bristles. It is anti static, antibacterial and heat resistant oh & it is also pink! My niece keeps trying to pinch it, so I am going to have to buy her one too.

The Body Shop Eye Colour Stick in Nevada Gold 

I love an eyeshadow stick – they’re great for applying your makeup super quick and you don’t need to use a brush, just blend it out with your finger. These ones from The Body Shop are waterproof and enriched with babassu oil and beeswax. They don’t crease and the colour stays put. I have the Nevada Gold shade which a pretty champagne gold which works for me as an everyday colour.

New in beauty 2017

Lancome LA Base Pro Hydra Glow 

I have only used this a couple of times but it does give a nice subtle dewy, glow to your skin and it makes a lovely primer. Unlike most primers this Lancome offering is formulated to have some fantastic skincare benefits too. It contains a, Cocktail blend of 14 actives, the Nourishing-sensation intensely hydrates, plumps, and continuously charges the complexion with moisture for rose petal smooth and healthy skin, perfectly prepared for the layering of foundations, with extend wear all day long.

DHC Oil Blotting Paper

These are handy to have in you bag for days you want your makeup to last but you don’t want to keep applying powder to dull the shine. These natural hemp fiber papers are brilliant for discreetly stopping shine on the go and are more effective at absorbing oil than synthetic alternative. I always have a pack in my handbag, they don’t lift off your makeup but are great at absorbing oil.

B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes

Theses were free when you purchased another product from B at Superdrug. These wipes are very moist and great at removing eye makeup. They don’t try out my skin or leaving it feeling tight. I have since purchased a couple more packs, great for having in the cupboard.
