I’ve been struggling a little with blog post ideas this week so I thought that I would share with you some of the products I have been loving over the last couple of days. I love these sort of posts as they’re a nice way to talk about a range of products that I’ve really been loving.
Last week I met with two of the Murad girls, I think sometimes I need to feel someones love and passion for a brand before I too can get into it, especially with a brand that’s more science than luxury. I’ve used items from Murad before but their AHA/BHA Cleanser scared me a little as it sounds quite intense but after hearing the girls talk about it I literally got home removed all my makeup and used this. It’s a little different to most other cleansers I love, it’s an exfoliating cleanser with Jojoba beads, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid so it’s definitely not one to be used to remove eye makeup and instead more of a second cleanse. Since my first use I have been using this every 2/3 days and really fallen it love, it really helps get rid of that dull look my skin gets every so often and leaves it smoother and healthier looking. I’ve also tried using this as a quick face mask and left it on for a couple of minutes, it’s not really what it’s recommended for but works beautifully at waking up the skin. I would say that it may not work for people with sensitive skin but I’ve fallen in love with it quite quickly.
I had a beautiful pale pink gel polish applied about ten days ago but last night I really had the urge to paint them a darker more autumnal colour. I’ve never painted over gels but it worked surprisingly well! I didn’t want the normal burgundy wine autumn shade and therefore was automatically drawn to this Soigne shade in Mysterieuse. I love khaki nails as an alternative to more traditional autumn shades and this one in particular is just perfect as it has a hint of grey.
The Sisley So Intense Eyeliner is one of the most expensive eyeliners I own and I know that it isn’t for anyone but it’s by far the best liner I have tried in years. This is one of the first time Sisley has made liners but they’ve done it so well! It’s a super intense black felt tip, with a sturdy nip and packaging too. Although I think there isn’t often a huge difference between liners there are some awful ones and some great ones with this being the best of the best. It’s easy to apply and lasts all day without any movement which is exactly what I want. If you’re a Tom Ford Eyeliner lover I would highly recommend swapping over to this one as it really outshines the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen.
Another recent discover is black toothpaste, Curaprox makes Black is White toothpaste designed to whiten the teeth which is black in colour. Admittedly it is very strange to brush your teeth with a black paste and almost looks like coal but I’ve actually been really enjoying it. It came with a great toothbrush which has it’s own little lid which I love and I’ve actually found my teeth to be a little whiter, not anything drastic but I haven’t been using it for very long but I will update in a few weeks time.
My current favourite fragrance which was also in my September favourites is the Jimmy Choo Illicit Fragrance, I’m awful at describing scents but I think it’s a floral/sweet scent which I find really comforting for Autumn/Winter. If you’re looking for a new fragrance than I would recommend checking this one out, I’ve hardly been wearing anything else!
