I obsess about buying beauty products pretty much throughout the year and Easter is no eggception (sorry!). I’ve tried a varied mix. Here’s my Easter beauty top 5…
Everon Lip Balm, Weleda, £3.95
I can’t stress enough how wonderful this lip balm is. It’s basically heaven in a tube. I regularly try lots of lip balms but somehow I always keep coming back to this one. I love the subtle vanilla and rose scent.
Made with natural ingredients such as organic jojoba oil, precious rose wax and organic shea butter, it nourishes and protects my lips against cold weather (we’re not in summer yet!) and stops them feeling dry.
Concealer in 01, Alverde at dm-drogerie markt, £1.93
I don’t usually buy lots of different concealers but I thought I’d make an exception with this one. I mean, just LOOK at the price. You can’t go wrong for £1.93 can you? It’s lovely to use, the applicator is super soft on my skin and the precious mineral pigments help brighten any dullness on my face. It’s a great under-eye concealer.
Face Renew Muslin Cloth, Zur Skincare, £6.95
Muslin cloths are a great way of exfoliating your skin without being too harsh. This one is made from 100% cotton and it’s very soft on my skin. I use it in circular motions with a gentle foam cleanser.
Doll Lashes Mascara, Alverde at dm-drogerie markt, £2.96
If you’re not familiar with dm-drogerie markt, then you need to be. You might have seen from my other posts that I’m quite a big fan of this European beauty shop. Ok, that’s a MASSIVE understatement but when a shop uses natural ingredients and has such good prices, you can hardly fault me for popping in every now and again can you? Surely you wouldn’t be that cruel.
Anyway, moving onto the mascara…
Usually, I prefer mascaras that give full volume and a false lash effect but I was intrigued to try this because doll lashes look so adorable. It’s a cute mascara to use and I can’t fault it on the price but I’m not entirely sure I’d buy this again. It’s great at separating lashes but after a few hours it kind of looks like I’m not wearing anything. Maybe more than two coats of it are needed…
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum, Estée Lauder at allbeauty.com, £46
We’ve all been there: our eyes look tired with visible fine lines and dark circles. Why, oh why is this happening? As well as taking care of our bodies from the inside out (staying hydrated is crucial for eliminating the above problems) it’s still good to use a beauty product for an extra boost.
This serum is perfect to layer underneath my usual eye cream and because the texture is light I don’t have to worry about it clogging my skin. It hydrates and helps combat dryness and puffiness. A key ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which keeps in moisture and protect skin. After using this for a few weeks, the skin around my eyes looks firmer and more radiant.
How about you? Which products will you be trying this Easter?
