A mixed bag of favourites, this month (last month, rather – so sorry it’s late!) but there are a few real beauty crackers for you. I have been testing out eye makeup removers recently, and I will do a bigger post on my findings, but I couldn’t wait to tell you about the two budget versions that have come up trumps. The Camomile Waterproof Makeup Remover from The Body Shop is excellent; feels gentle, doesn’t make my eyes red, doesn’t fill them with oil so that I’m rendered blind for the next two and a half hours. It’s eight quid, which I think is a really great price. (Find it here.) The All Bright Soothing Makeup Remover, however, is just £3.99! Again, does a great job and feels gentle. This removed everything from stubborn mascara to Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil, which usually needs a blowtorch to remove. You can find it at Boots.com here.
The other beauty star that’s new in my life is the Age Support Radiance Mask from Emma Hardie. I loved the effect of this; nice and soft and plumping. I have to say that my skin did drink it up quite fast, so if you were going to follow the instructions and leave it on for 5-10 minutes, you’d need more of a layer than I applied. I did a thinnish application and after three or four minutes my skin was plumptious and radiant and I went straight in over the top with foundation. Lovely for dry or dull skin, for a bit of a pep up if you don’t want to do the full works with a hardcore exfoliating mask. You can find Emma’s mask here at Cult Beauty, it’s £36.
Right: on with the show. You’ll see that Sali Hughes’ excellent new book makes another appearance – if you want more detail on that then you can read the full post here. You’ll also see my new Warehouse Cricket Jumper and a neon orange bra. Enjoy!
