New Products I've Bought

Recent products I've bought: In this blog post I will just be listing a few of the new products I have bought recently, these just a few but I just wanted to include them as part of a blog post. I think I may also do inidividual reviews on each of the products in some other blog posts too, so you can find out what I think about the products.

The products I bought are all MUA products, I really wanted to try them out so I bought three of the eyeshadow palettes, these are... The Undressed Palette, Undress Me Too Palette and the Heaven and Earth Palette.

I've wanted to try these out for a while so I decided to get them, since they've had good reviews and are meant to be similar to the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I don't have any Urban Decay Palettes yet but I really would like to get one, so maybe I will have to try one of those soon too.

I have included a picture of eyeshadows below and will hopefully be doing individual reviews of them soon and maybe get some Urban Decay eyeshadows too.

I really like the look of the eyeshadows they are neutral warm shades that can be easily adapted for an everyday look or changed into a more dramatic smokey eye. They are also really great for travelling and have a variety of different shades for any occasion, so I'm really looking forward to using them over the next few months.

Beauty Products I've Used Up #1

Beauty Products I've Used Up - This is just a quick blog post to tell you about some of the products I've used up recently, theres only a few so I will give them each a little review of their own.

The first product I have used up is the Soap and Glory mini Righteous Butter, I love this product its really moisturising and the mini version means that it is great for traveling. I really like the Soap and Glory range and this is a great product to try, it works really well too and the packaging it so lovely. I love having some of the products out on my desk, so I can always find them as well as them brightening up my room. I have another one of these at home already, so I must like it :)

The next product is the Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Replemishing Body Lotion with L-Bifidus. The fragrance that I bought is in Nutritive Mango Oil. I LOVE the smell of this its smells so clean and fresh, which makes it a great product to use instead of a pefume. I bought the 250ml bottle and its lasted quite a while, I would repurchase this because I love the scent and how well it moisturises the skin. It leaves the skin soft but not greasy and dries quite quickly. Its one of my new favourite products. There are a few different frangrances in the body lotion range that I've not tried yet, so I will be trying some of them out soon too.

The last product is the Anotomicals Don't Just Clean It Woman, Scrub it Body Scrub. I really liked this product, I got it in a monthly subscription beauty box and really liked it. Its smells fresh and its gentle on the skin, I like that it isn't too scratchy and is really easy to use.

If you have any request for blogs or beauty products (makeup, skincare or haircare) you would like me to try out you can always leave me a comment below. And if you would like to find out when my next blog will be you can follow me on Twitter if you like too :)    at @laureninparis

Products I'm loving at the moment

Beauty Products I'm loving at the moment: There are so many new makeup, skincare and haircare products out there, the list of new products to try is endless. In this blog post I want to list some of the products I have enjoyed using and the moment and share my thoughts on them with you.

Firstly I will start with skincare and my favourite facial cleaners which is Boots No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser, this has worked really well on my skin and leaves it feeling soft and moisturised while still removing makeup. I really like the smell to it smells nice and clean and is easy to use.
Although, I think this version of the product has changed recently and is now called No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've not tried it since the name has changed or the packaging has changed but I will certainly try it out the next time I got into Boots to see if it is the same as the Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser that I have at home.  The No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser reatails for £9.95 and can be found in most Boots stores. They sometimes have offers on too, like the £5 off No7 vouchers or 3 for 2 on selected skincare.

Alternatively, I've also been loving the Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser with pethenol, sweet almond, orange and lavender oils. This cleanser smells so nice, you can really smell the lavender  which I love. Its moisturising and smells clean and fresh, whilst still thouroughly cleansing your face. This cleanser can be found in Boots and retails for £10 for a 100ml.

Talking of Soap and Glory, recently I have been loving the mini Righteous Butter they sell. I thought I'd try the smaller 50ml sample size/travel size. This makes it a great option to travel with or just to put in your handbag. The mini Righteous butter retails for £2.50 and for the full 300ml it is £10.50, both the full and travel size can be found at Boots.

And finally, I've really enjoyed using The Body Shop Eye Definer in Black. This eyeliner works really well and stays on they eyes all day. The colour is buildable so you can create a subtle everyday makeup look, or create a more dramatic smokey eye.  Its a product that I have been using for the last couple of months and it is still in my makeup bag. It retails for £8 at The Body Shop.
