The facial mist power trio!
If you have dry/combination skin like me you’ll know the importance of keeping your skin hydrated. I have been a big fan of the Mario Badescu range for a long time but my friend had told me about Revolution Beauty’s dupe of the power trio and for half of the price tag I snapped it up! This would make a great gift for one of your gals and would be perfect for anyone new to skincare as well as experienced glow-getters too. This set is the ultimate trio that encourages misting anytime, anywhere. REVOLUTION - MINI ESSENCE SPRAY COLLECTION: SO SOOTHING The threesome includes Niacinamide which is for clarifying blemish-prone skin, Glycolic Acid for revitalising dull skin and Tea Tree to soothing irritated skin. The products come in a small bag which fits perfectly in any overnight bag and is lightweight to carry too. These sprays actually did reduce redness immediately and left my skin feeling soft to the touch. I just spritz throughout the day whenever my skin feels a little thirsty. You just need to hold 20-25cm from your face and neck and spray. My favourite of the three has to be the Niacinamide as I give my makeup a dewy finish by spritzing my favorite brush/sponge before blending in my foundation or concealer. Once I’m done I also mist my face with the tea tree as a final step to add radiance. For an extra refreshing and cooling boost you can even store the bottles in your refrigerator! The bottles are cute enough to display on your skincare shelf and are all vegan and cruelty free too - what more could you ask for? Revolution Beauty are really stepping up their skincare game recently and I’m excited to see what's next from them as they provide affordable, quality products that all seem to deliver.

Daisy Love: The Set
The most perfect gift idea for a loved one. You’ve all seen the gift sets that feature a perfume plus a shower gel and a body lotion/cream. Now I’m not usually a fan of the whole (let’s buy everything in one scent) but in this case I HAVE to make an exception. I was given this by a friend for my birthday. It comes in a beautiful red box with ‘Daisy Love’ displayed on the front, which I am now using to store my nail varnishes inside! MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Daisy Love Eau de Toilette Set Daisy is a light floral fragrance, it’s not too sweet and has a slight woodsy base. This is my favorite spring/summer fragrance. I'd say this is a great first perfume for a teen and could be worn by anyone but in particular would be ideal for women aged from 13 to 40. But if you're older and want to feel that fresh youthful vibe of Daisy then give it a go! It doesn't last as long as other fragrances and you'll probably have to reapply at least once through the day. I absolutely love this shower gel! As I said I’m not usually a fan of these gels inside gift packs but this one is amazing. Marc Jacobs Daisy Love foaming shower gel gently cleanses and scents the skin with a delicate, creamy and radiant fragrance. This gel is obviously in the scent, Daisy Love and when foamed up leaves the skin feeling divine. I have just ordered a full size gel which will be delivered hopefully tomorrow. The lotion is also a great addition to the set. Although, not as nourishing as some of my other favourite lotions I still enjoy applying this after a morning shower. Even when I don’t apply the fragrance itself I get compliments throughout the day on how nice I smell! This would make a great gift for a friend or loved one!

Lilah b gift set : a gift to myself
I just bought this set from @lilahbeauty as a valentine gift to myself and I’m so impressed with it . This was my first from this brand and the set came with an eyeshadow pebble, a brush and a lip/cheek duo pebble. . . Super excited to try the lip and cheek duo as I love a multi purpose cream product . They’re definitely easier to use without requiring any brushes or blenders. . . I can totally see myself carrying the eyeshadow Pebble and the lip/cheek pebble with me while traveling! As you know I’m all about convenience of using a product while traveling or on the go.😅 . . And the best part Is it all came in this beautiful @lilahbeauty clutch/purse, that you can use to carry your makeup or carry just about anywhere. 😀 . . Packaging definitely has a major role in attracting me to a new brand or product sometimes and @lilahbeauty has nailed it beautifully . And it makes me happy that I’m venturing more into clean beauty brands . .

FARMACY-House of Gold Limited-Edition Holiday Gift Set
Origins Ginzing Gel Moisturizer & Eye Cream
For this past holiday season, Origins released a gift set with a few products from their GinZing line included for only $30, which is the retail price of the moisturizer alone, so you already know I snagged that awesome deal while it was available! As a result, I was able to try not only the ORIGINS - GinZing Oil-Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer , but also the ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff ! First of all, let me note that one of the main reasons I really enjoy the Origins GinZing line is because it's supposed to kind of stimulate and energize the skin when you apply the products - perfect for me, since I have narcolepsy and am literally always sleep-deprived and super tired. I've heard some things about how the term "oil-free" is just a gimmick when it comes to moisturizers and skincare products in general, but despite the fact that Origins went with a gimmicky name for the moisturizer, I actually really, really enjoyed using it. I have normal-to-dry skin, and I found this was hydrating enough most days, and when it wasn't, I just applied another layer of a different moisturizer over top of this Origins GinZing one. As for the eye cream, I didn't find it to do any kind of actual brightening - that would have been awesome if it did, but I still like it okay regardless. It's more of a cream than the gel-like moisturizer, but I feel like it didn't really do much to hydrate or moisturize my eye area... That said, I still did enjoy it because of the energizing, stimulating effect it has on the skin when applied. However, if you're looking for a product that's going to really make a difference in terms of dark undereye circles or puffiness or any other eye concerns, you should probably look elsewhere. Overall, I think I'll probably end up repurchasing the moisturizer eventually but I'm not in a rush to get my hands on it again since I have other moisturizers I'm currently working through. The eye cream, on the other hand, I most likely will not be repurchasing simply because I feel like my eye area needs more hydration than this product can provide.

Favourite highlighter for my skin tone ✨✨✨
Milk MAKEUP - Milk MAKEUP Highlighter This highlighter stick is probably ONE of my favourite ones to use for my skin tone. I have the mini travel size of this that I got as a Sephora gift set, BUT I LOVE HOW MINI IT IS 🥰🥰 it’s so cute aha. The highlighter is a really pretty colour for my skin tone because of the consistency it’s not a powder where it can be drying and glittery and it’s not a more water base where it can be sticky and weird🙃🙃 I love this consistency because it’s the perfect amount and it gives you such a beautiful colour. I have a light to med would probably just define it as a neutral skin colour with a hint of olive under tones and this just emphasizes the glow I already have ✨✨ It’s not a crazy pigment and you can definitely build it up if you want, but I love how subtle it can be with your makeup. It’s one of my favourites and it’s so easy to take with you when you need it. I took it with me on my trip to China and it helped so much with not putting too much makeup on where you can sweat, but having something to make you feel confident and put together. 👏🏼🥰🧡 I love it so much!
