Insta-Beauty Shares

Time does not wait for anyone! Oh, how true that statement is and since I already knew that, like any task, I had to set aside a moment to gather a few gifts and items that I purchased some time ago. New beauty and items are always a pleasant treat for me.

Although, I don't typically do a beauty haul I wanted to share these items, since I have been frequently using them. Additionally, there wasn't a vast sum of product to upload via my mobile, which has also been an excellent aid for my Instagram snap-to-fashion moments for visual reminding


The Somerset Toiletry Company I have only used the soaps from this brand in the past, but my sister gave me this moisturising shower creme a couple months ago and I love it! Gifting bath items can be tricky, I don't tend to buy specific ones for others unless it's a very close friend or loved one. I'm just happy that my family knows me well and also love quality products.

Pulanna Green Tea Eye Gel: This is something that I picked up before Christmas as I was travelling, I forgot the actual name of the store that I bought it from, but I found a link with more info here and also here. So far, I like it. It has a nice refreshing and cooling effect when used as well, not as sticky or thick as some eye contour gels can be.

Luxo Laboratories Argan Plus and Phytorelax: If only these came in smaller size bottles! I have been using these and pouring them inside miniature travelling containers. I was a bit Argan oil obsessive since I already had the actual Argan oil, but then decided to try these two brands: one is a body wash, the other is a shower gel. I haven't tried these brands before, but both seemed to work great as well as smell really good! I think my favourite is the Phytorelax Olio Di Argan (above, on bottom) shower gel.

 
Yves Rocher has been a long time favourite, as you may know! I picked up their Wrinkles and Radiance Day Creme, but don't be judgmental of the title. Of course, I am not at the wrinkling stage yet, but that's beside the point. I found this to work wonderfully as a facial moistening creme for sun protection, and with over a month of using, (in addition to healthier eating habits) providing a healthier glow to my skin.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion: I normally don't use too many other toner brands, but when you are in various climates sometimes you need to give your skin a revival gift and change your beauty regimen accordingly. Clinique is a brand that I have used continually in previous years, but recently have tried this clarifying toner the past few months or so, which has worked well for my seasonal beauty transitions.

Spa Treatment-Sea Kelp Purifying Clay Facial Masque I bought this on Amazon. A friend of mine told me about this mask so I thought I'd give it a go! I loved it, however when you apply the mask it's quite stingy, I thought somewhat more than average. Afterward, it was smooth sailing, and my skin felt the way that it said it would: deep cleansed and soft complextion. Bottom line: I like it, and only use it once every two weeks, because I have another facial mask that I like to use once a week.  


The Green House Lavender and Citrus Bath Salts: 100% Natural ingredients. I cannot put enough emphasis on how much I love this product. I received this as a gift and already want to buy more! I really do love lavender, even though personally, sometimes it can be overpowering. Not only is the aroma in this addicting and refreshing ... it's also very relaxing! It definitely feels amazing after a labourious day at the office or if you are slightly stressed, and need to unwind. This will calm you right down.


Have you acquired any new beauty products (skin creams, makeup, facial masks, etc.) lately? What's your favourite of the moment?

  24. madison, you have a nice little bath & body arsenal girly girl! i would love to try that green tea eye gel. I bet it's so soothing and relaxing. I don't suffer from puffy eyes, but it looks really good. I love shea butter anything! it's so good for you! And I love bath salts!!! I haven't purchased any for a long time now, but will this spring. They truly soften your water and make your skin feel really good.  I think I put all my beauty and makeup stuff on the blog. HaHaHa I'm trying not to turn it into a beauty blog, but that is my vice. HAHAHAHA Have a great weekend beautiful girl!

  48. The only product I've ever used here is the Clinique toner - and it's good stuff!  Being a product junkie and I am just going to have to look the others up and perhaps snag a couple for myself - those lavender and citrus bath salts sounds lovely.

  49. I love Clinique and always use 3 step collection, also a big fan of bath salts-what can be better than relaxing in a bath after a long day:)
