new beauty bit’s

IMG_3214

Over the holidays I added a few new things to my ever growing collection on beauty bits. There is nothing I like more than opening, trying and loving a product for the very first time. As you may know, the most makeup I wear is mascara and lip tint so the majority of my beauty cabinet is skincare/ body care items. I have been on Pinterest a lot lately and have been feeling inspired to try out some colorful eye shadow and to start painting my nails in the weekends. I believe that having a little routine for school day and weekends in terms of day and night skin care is really important. I love the feeling of a cleansed toned and moisturised face and try to do this every morning and night, but I get tired sometimes as everyone does and this doesn’t always happen.  I will share more about this later.

Now onto the products:

I spoilt myself with my birthday money and got a tube of the Aesop Rind Concentrate Body Balm. I love citrus scents so pink grapefruit,  mandarin rind, and lemon balm totally float my citrus smelling boat.  It’s everything a body/ hand cream should be, a little thick, not sticky, very nice to look at, and gorgeous to smell. Once it’s all gone I’ll buy another!

The other Aesop product was an instore gift as it was my birthday! It was actually so surreal when she gave me 2 mini bottles of product. The one pictured is the Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser. I’m not a fan of Geranium but as it has Mandarin the two scents blend really nicely and the scent actually stays on your body after washing which is a plus. The other little bottle I got given was the Rind Concentrate body balm like above and she said the two scents pair really nicely which I agree with. I think these are going to be great for traveling.

Third and final is the LUSH breath of fresh air toner. I love spray toners and toners in general and I have wanted this salty and fresh scented one for ages. I love it, its great, it does it job and very well too.  The only thing is when you spray it a lot come out so it’s easiest to spray it onto a cotton pad and wipe it on your face that way.

so these are my new things and I highly recommend you buy them too!

Hello lovelies!

I popped into the brand spanking new Aesop in newmarket and oh me oh my it’s gorgeous! The shop’s fittings are inspired by the “kiwi way of life”. The sinks look like water troughs with industrial taps and pipes and the shelves are inspired by metal baking trays. You definitely need to pop in to take a look for yourself!

To go along with the gorgeous interiors are all their gorgeous products! I love how they are all plant based and heavenly scented. There are testers all over the shop to try while you browse which is really nice. The lovely lady in store talked to me about my skin and what she recommended! She sent my mum and me home with a brown paper bag filled with testers!

01.  Aesop Amazing Face Cleanser

I love citrus scents so not only is this cleanser gently foaming, cleansing and leaves you skin feeling fresh, it does so while smelling amazing! It is gentle and fresh and for my sensitive and slightly oily skin it is perfect and is definitely a product I want to purchase.

02. Aesop B & Tea Balancing toner

Most toners sting my skin but this one is so gentle but still removes the oil gross stuff from my skin. It’s really nice to use after the cleanser and the green tea smell goes really nicely with the mandarin scent of the cleanser. If you are looking for a new toner this one is worth a try.

03. Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion

the lady recommended this as she said it’s great as a moisturizer and a skin protector. it’s kind of like a leave on mask because it is a post-shave lotion it’s very gentle on your skin but still protects and moisturizes it. It has the normal texture and consistency of a regular moisturizer too!

04. Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream

Out of the two moisturisers, this was my favorite, mainly because of the scent though. I absolutely adored how this felt on my cleansed and toned face and citrus scents like I said before totally float my boat. I would very much like to buy this beauty as I think it was my fav!

Hopefully my tips and recommendations were jolly good and if so go buy yourself some Aesop products lovelies!
