At Wicks End Pink Rhubarb & Blackberry Candle
I absolutely loved this! It didn't fill the whole room with scent, but I burnt it whilst I was doing some work at my desk and it smelt like retro sweeties. Lovely.
Karm Restore Candle*
This was such a beautiful warm vanilla scent but I must admit the candle didn't last as long as I was hoping. It did burn evenly though so absolutely nothing was wasted.
Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Day Cream
This is a really, really lovely day cream. It really surprised me and if it were cruelty free I would absolutely repurchase. It gave my skin enough moisture, it wasn't greasy at all and absorbed quickly. I'm not sure I believe all the marketing spiel about how it prompts skin cells to regenerate faster, who knows, but it's a great moisturiser.
L'Occitane Precious Cream
I used this on my legs because unfortunately I couldn't stand the scent but it felt beautifully moisturising without being too heavy. It's been getting a lot of praise and L'Occitane always pack their products full of really lovely ingredients.
Tresemme Nourish & Renew Shampoo and Conditioner
It's difficult to form an opinion on something after just one use but it cleansed my hair well, moisturising enough without weighing my hair down.
Nivea Sensitive Cleansing Wipes*
I'm not a huge fan of cleansing wipes in general, but I used these to remove my mascara before removing the rest of my make up and they did a pretty good job! They didn't sting my eyes like a lot of cleansing wipes do, so they do seem to live up to their sensitive claims.
Revlon Cherries in the Snow Lipstick
A beautiful bright pink red colour that I wore a lot in my early twenties. The super lustrous formula is a brilliant, it glides on without highlighting any dryness & the colour is incredibly rich and pigmented.
W7 Lashtastic Mascara*
A £2.99 mascara that gives very full, defined looking lashes, proving that you don't need to spend a lot of money on make up. The wand is on the larger side, but it's not so large that it's impossible to work with and the formula is neither too dry or too wet. The packaging is a little garish, but I was definitely always able to find it easily in my make up bag!
Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm*
An incredibly moisturising lip balm packed full of lovely ingredients, but unfortunately I wasn't a fan of the scent. It's fruity but there's something a little overwhelmingly strong about it that meant I barely ever reached for it.
ELF Tinted Lip Balm
Tinted balms are my best friend over the colder months and I've really enjoyed using this one. The mint scent made a nice change from the usual vanilla and it gave a hint of a red tint to my lips, which was very wearable and never patchy or too bright.
L'Oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash in Juliet
This formula is really lovely. The glossy shine lasts really well before fading evenly and leaving a stain on the lips. Juliet is a very pretty, wearable red shade and I'm sad to see this one go.
