Home bargains reusable face pads are a bargain and they are saving the planet at the same time.
Washing machine safe and can be reused again and again.
Use them like you would a normal cotton wool pad and then rinse well. It’s up to you how often you use it before you decide to bung it into the machine.
They come in a pack of 4 so you won’t be left without one.
You can also get them in bulk on the likes of amazon and they look just like cotton wool pads as they are white. But I like my colourful ones. Call me crazy but a bit of colour adds a bit of fun to your skincare routine.
I love a little chemist /drugstore splurge. Didn’t buy too much this time.
So here’s what fell into the basket 😂
I wanted a mascara that’s not too dramatic like my milani one but enough to look like I’ve made an effort and this is what I chose soap and glory thick and fast
I am nearly at the end of my Mac fluidline gel liner and I wanted to see if I could save the pennies and find something that does the same job so this Carter Beauty gel liner is on trial to see if he’s got the position.
We all love a concealer that covers a multitude of sons and this one is one I always go back to after trying others. It’s collection lasting perfection and it is just what it says in its name… Perfection
This wasn’t the shade I was expecting as online it looked lighter but this Collection lipstick is an absolute beaut of a colour for the autumn winter months. I can be a bit daring.
For years I have used olay in one way or another and this is something that I am just renewing that I think helps my dry skin. Daily facials and double action day cream. I recommend it if your combo like me.
Then if you spent over £20 you got this gift for free. I have 3 of the lipsticks to give away to whoever wants them as they are brown and not my colour. But the other goodies will come in handy.
I paint my nails myself, I’ve never been and had any sort of extensions or gels. My nails are natural and I’m proud of them… Not so when they break right in the quick but let’s hope they don’t do that for a while or else they’ll all have the chop 🙈
So here’s this week’s look
Taken out in my garden as there was sunlight and needed to take advantage of it.
These are the nail varnishes used and I love the 60 second ones from Rimmel.
The technic one is very old but still adds a little something to a plain colour.
I reckon the price was about £9 for all 3 so that’s alot cheaper than going to the salon.
I must say we had a treat this July with some glorious sunshine so that was a fave. Though it’s lovely now having a bit of breeze.
I have a nice handful of my favourite things I’ve been loving this month to show you, so let’s get into it.
Oh my goodness I have literally fell in love with this 24 hr moisturiser from Palmers. You can imagine the cocoa makes me smell of chocolate, which is a good thing as I’m a bit of a chocoholic. A little bit goes a long long way. Highly recommend it.
If you suffer with anxiety like me a little lavender essential oil will be your new best friend. I have used a little spray bottle added a few drops of lavender and then filled it up with water. Now I have my homemade anxiety reliever to spray on me, my pillows or in the air around me.
This was part of my childhood and then I saw they still sold them I was so happy. They’ve been my go to snack when I’ve needed that sugar fix.
Oh wow, these tick so many boxes. As a lover of houmous. These chickpea crisps that are sea salt flavour, gluten free, vegan and 40% less fat. To top it off they are 50p at the mo for a big bag 😋
Through being lacking energy lately and then being put on tablets because I’m low on iron I thought I need something that has all the goodness but is still yum and these tea bags from Tetley are just that.
BITS AND BOBS
I have bought / had as a present a few notepads this month and as a stationery addict one can never have too many.
I have wanted to get stuck into a series and then I saw Derry Girls was on my recommendations on Netflix so I’ve watched the first season. The second season is on 4 on demand so I can’t wait to finish watching them all. The girls are balshy, Irish school girls standing up for what they believe. I love the Irish accent and it’s something to get stuck into. I’ll let you know what I think of the second once I’ve binge watched it.
I have really loved Vogues makeup /self care routines with well known celebs and I have always adored Liv Tyler from a young age so watched her self care routine this week. Worth a watch just to get the tips.
