After a weekend of birthday spoiling I am excited to tell you about some of the beauty gifts I received (and the ones I bought for myself).

My birthday presents and purchases were circulated around my favourite products, some expensive ones and some new ones for me to try, my ultimate favourite present has to be my EVE LOM cleanser! Girls! If you do not currently have this little beauty in your bathroom, INVEST! My skin is like silk, I also got some beautiful EVE LOM muslin cloths to go with the cleanser, I swear it is the best treat you could give your skin morning and evening and the feel, oh wow! I have noticed a distinct difference in my daily glow and my skin’s overall appearance, it seems much more healthy and bouncy! (in a plumping youthful good way, not bouncing as in my cheeks are by my chin!)
To go with the cleanser I also received a luxurious lip balm by NUXE, their Reve de Miel, ultra-nourishing lip balm with honey and precious oils. Quite a large sized tub for a lip balm I thought, so you definitely get your moneys worth. It’s a creamy balm, and I swear it smells a little like Terrys Chocolate Orange, so it has been over applied on my lips daily. Very moisturising, and super soft, not sticky in the slightest, works as a great primer for lips before lipstick, absolutely love it!

Next on my list of loves was a purchase, from on of my favourite stores, SPACE NK. I cannot go into this shop without buying something and I always want everything so there is no shortage of wants in that store. They also have loyalty Ndulge points so the more you spend the more offers you receive throughout the year, needless to say I use mine up all of the time, but it is a great little incentive and almost makes the spending part more justifiable!
Anyway back to the purchase, I have been in love with facial toning sprays fro a while, I have a handbag sized rose spray from L’occitane which is so refreshing on the skin and it has really helped with the dryness I have been experiencing lately. I decided to purchase another perhaps with more brightening qualities. After testing many and googling some reviews, I decided on the Jurlique Purely White Skin Brightening Mist. The product is very lightweight, and contains VitabrightKX to help soften skin and restore a youthful glow for a more radiant appearance. It smells divine and you know what? After a few sprays morning noon and evening my skin does look more youthful and glowing, this product is definitely a keeper 😉

I also purchased my long time love of a bronzer, Nars in Casino. Now most people tend to go for Laguna, I just happen to have tried the Casino first and became hooked. If you have not ever encountered this product, I suggest you get yourself down to your nearest Nars counter and ask them to demonstrate the product by testing it on your skin, with summer coming up this is the ultimate bronzer to have, it is perfect in every way. I love love love it!

Face cream, I opted for the Elemental Herbology Plumping cream, consistency of the cream is not too thick, smells quite nice and aims to help cell production and boost skin rejuvenation. So far so good with this product, it’s a little pricey RRP £40 but I am very satisfied with the results so far, my skin feels fresh, very youthfully fresh!

Amongst other gifts was a voucher for a facial, various Sanctuary Spa facial kits (there are amazing at home facial kits for around £10 perfect for keeping your skin topped up between facial appointments). Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, excellent for beautiful beachy tousled hair, a must have handbag product for the summer, simply spritz and scrunch your hair throughout the day for maximum boho chic hair.

Those are the best bits of my newly added skincare and beauty products.

Hope you all have a glorious Tuesday, it is sunny and hot here by the sea… Spring is on its way.
