Obsessions #3 ♡

Keeping it small this time around I actually don't have that many products I'm really obsessing over at the moment. I'm not sure why I think it might be because its been that time of the month and my skins been reacting really badly to it especially around my chin and jawline, I have no idea why as it's never usually this bad but I can only assume that the heat isn't helping with keeping my skin clear and oil free, let me know if you have any recommendations on how to control hormonal spots or adult acne I'd really appreciate any tips or help. With that being said a few of the products I've been enjoying using are skincare related but I'm still currently experimenting with products to help with my breakouts so there aren't that many and I've been almost detoxing from makeup to help were possible and as I've been off from work for over a week on annual leave and not necessarily going out this has been a great opportunity to go makeup free.

 P.S Pro Brush Primark £1.00: - After seeing all of these oval precision brushes all of the internet I was like no way is this for me and dismissed it pretty much straight away. Let much just say how wrong was I? I mean move over your generic foundation brush and Beauty Blender because I ain't looking back! This has completely changed the way I apply my make up and I couldn't be more than happier with the results it gives. I swear it honestly leaves my skin looking airbrushed it applies foundation that well. I've also been using it to apply my concealer under my eyes, on my nose and on my chin/ jawline area and again brilliant. The P.S Pro Brush just literally works wonders in buffs in my foundation so smoothly and my concealer application has never looked so faultless leaving no creased lines or patchiness. I'm almost tempted to purchase the amazing 8 piece Makeup Revolution Precision Brush Collection but at £45.00 at the moment it's a tad out of my price range even if that equates to just over £5.50 per brush, the struggles of saving hey?

Benefit They're Real Mascara Mini £9.95: - On my quest to use up some of my mini products, seriously I don't know how I accumulate so many of them, I took a couple of my mini Benefit mascaras to London with me including this one and Benefit Badgal Lash Mini Mascara £5.00. Although I did like the Badgal mascara I felt the applicator was a little bit OTT for me and the size of it scared me a tad, not something I'd want to be putting near to my eyes on a restless morning of fears of poking my eyes out. But the applicator on the They're Real mascara is ideal for me and something I feel much more comfortable using. I will say Benefit have done a great job with these mascaras as they hold out incredibly well and once the end of the day comes I struggle to remove every last trace of mascara all be it I try my hardest. The They're Real adds a nice bit of length to my lashes and since using it in London my love for mascaras is starting to grow again as before I could take it or leave it... yes I know shocking, people always find that bizarre as mascara is something they can't do without even if it's the only piece of makeup they're applying but I can honestly be happy without it. I'd certainly recommend the mini mascaras if you are travelling anywhere as they come in super cute small packaging suitable to pop in either your handbag or makeup bag for the journey, plus they last out really well considering they are in miniature version.  

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter £6.00 50ml: - Admittedly I would have never have purchased this myself but The Body Shop kindly gifted it to me when I attended an event a few months ago and I've been using it on and off ever since. The strawberry scent seriously lingers longingly once applied to the skin, I like to use it just after I've showered and am about to jump in to my pyjamas for the night, with that being said I can actually smell it on my pyjamas right now after it's transferred on to them. Despite it being a smaller body butter I've almost used it all up and that's a great achievement within my skincare routine because I almost hate moisturising my body and I have a lot of products to choose from so to be nearly coming to an end I'd say it's done well. 

 Revolution Radiant Lights Glow £5.00: - I honestly can't believe this is the first time I'm talking about this product as I'm absolutely in love with it, so much so I use it more or less every single day to the point I've had to swap it out to allow my other highlighting products to get some use. Paul actually brought this for me for my birthday all the way back in June a I'd popped it on my birthday list, believe me the Makeup Revolution list was looooong as they are one or if not my favourite makeup brand for both quality and affordability and I'd be shock if a day goes by without a Makeup Revolution product being in my makeup routine. Initially when I opened up this highlighter I gasped and thought I wouldn't be able to pull it off but it transfers as such a beautiful light bronze shimmery highlighter on to my skin and has been the perfect highlighting buddy for the summertime. 

Clean and Clear Advantage Spot Treatment Gel £2.90 15ml: - What an absolute lifesaver this has been over the past fortnight. In times of need or shell we say "that time of the month" I needed something to help with a) my spots in general and b) the horrendous redness that came with them. Luckily I remember I had this 10ml sample size of Johnson & Johnson Clean & Clear from when I attended one of Abbigayle's from Stealstylist events Summer Scoop. This teamed with my Tea Tree oil treatment has worked wonders and I've really seen my spots reduce over night once I've applied the treatment gel. I'll certainly be keeping this one handy for the next time I suffer from any hormonal breakouts that's for sure. 

Little bit Lavish subscription box included in £20.00 per month Satin Leg Gloss £9.00 30ML: - Included in a subscription box gifted to me at the #BloggerTikiParty was this gorgeous Satin Leg Gloss by Evolve Beauty. The subscription box it came in was the Little bit Lavish box a brand new pamper product service perfect for pampering yourself with every month. Inside the box you will receive beautiful products to help you relax including face masks, lips balm or even a luxurious bathbomb the possibilities of pamper are endless believe me. The satin leg gloss that came inside the box is an impressive full size product designed to give your legs a glossy high shine finish and it does just that. I've been applying this dry body oil frequently throughout the summer as not only is it perfect at making your pins look banging in that playsuit it actually helps keep them soft and smooth after shaves. Just to make it even more fancy the mineral mica and titanium, yea I said titanium, will add a sparkle to your legs and the scent of sweet candy will leave peoples mouths watering, okay maybe a tad too far. 

 Heavan by Deborah Mitchell Weekenders Skincare Kit £28.00 10ml per product: - I couldn't contain my excitement when the lovely girls from Heaven at the #BloggerTikiParty said we could take some of the full size products home, what a kind gesture and a brilliant way to try out a new skincare brand. Lucky for me I got to take home the Weekenders Skincare Kit Anti Ageing, there are also other variations of the kit including acne, eczema and rosacea to name a few out of the 9 available, but considering the consultant ladies only had this one available this is the one I was gifted plus although I don't like to admit it, it is more than likely the one I would have opted for myself as I'm pushing thirty now. Included in the set you get Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydro-gel, Bee Polish, Hydro Cleansing Milk these are pictured above as well as Age Defiance Moisturiser 5ml and sachets of Willow Bee Mask and Bee Bee Cream. I've included the 3 products above as these are the only once I've had the opportunity to try out so far plus I want to save the sachets for when I really need them, preferably when I need some youth restoring in to my face at the end of a working week. These are the perfect trio to pack away in your travel bag for your skincare routine and at the moment I tend to use them of a night time once I've removed all of my makeup. The hydro-gel in particular has to be my favourite as it freshens up my skin so much after a long day and you can even double it up and use it as a primer. After trying out these products I'll certainly be looking towards the Heaven brand more for skincare especially since I'm approaching my thirties and I honestly believe in looking after your skin at all ages but do we truly care about it until we get that little bit older? 

Although a small collection of products this time around I'm proud to say that there are some different brands included that might actually be new to some people out there. Hopefully you've taken some inspiration from my recommended products and will be excited to potentially try them out as well. I'd love to hear if you have tried out any of the above products in particular anything from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell, Evolve or if you are interested in signing up to the Little bit Lavish subscription box.
