Hey lovelies, how are you all today? I would imagine you're all pretty happy that it's Friday! I know I would be too, but as I've mentioned before, I'm taking my holiday from work, so I have been off all week!
I've purchased and acquired a few new beauty products this week, so I thought I woud share them with you all now, and then write some reviews on them later on when I've had a bit more experience with using them.

So, first of all, I picked up the Caudalie Cleansing Water. I have just finished my big tube of my beloved Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, and while I will definitely be repurchasing, I thought it might be nice to try something a bit different in the meantime. Actually, I wanted to get a cleanser by Caudalie too, but as it wasn't available from the store I purchased the other items from on Ebay, I decided to wait, and use the Micellar solution in conjunction with my travel-size Cleanse and Polish. Then, as I was buying something by Caudalie anyway, I thought I might as well give in and finally purchase the massively hyped Beauty Elixir! It's not so much that I'm behind the times on this one as that I wasn't intending to try it any time soon, as I often find that such raved-about products can't live up to my expectations. But I've got it now, so I shall let you know!
When my bits from Ebay arrived, I found that the seller had kindly popped a sample sachet of Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel in with them. I really like Dermalogica, so I was happy to try this, although as it only contains about two applications, I don't really feel that I'm going to have had enough experience with it to review it fully. I think that you really need to try out skincare products for a good couple of weeks - preferably more - before you can possibly start to talk about the effects they have had on your skin, although some products to seem to make an impression straight away, in one way or another.

My skin has been looking a bit dull this week, so I decided to try out this L'oreal Pure Zone Mask, which is designed to be applied only on the T-Zone and dies to form a peel-off layer. I like the fact that my local pharmacy sell this in sachets, as buying large tubs or tubes of face masks can be quite expensive, and it's really nice to have a chance to try before you buy. The mask claims to banish excess oil and to help clear blocked pores, and if you read this my Beauty SOS post this month, you'll know that this is one of the things I've been on the lookout for, as I do tend to suffer from blocked pores on my nose.

Last but not least, I grabbed a Eucerin Dermo-Purifier Exfoliator, as let's face it, we all need to slough away those dead skin cells every now and again. I usually do find that my Cleanse and Polish does a good job of keeping my skin looking bright and fresh, but sometimes it just seems as though it could do with a little extra help, usually in the winter or when I have just been ill.

So that's my little lot! I hope you enjoyed having a nose at my stash and you can expect some reviews on these coming up in the near future.
What are your current favourite skincare products? Have you tried anything by Caudalie, Eucerin, Dermalogica or Liz Earle?



  1. I haven't tried the caudalie either but if in a few weeks time you end up raving about it too I may have to give in! x

    1. I will definitely give it a mention then! Clue: So far, I AM enjoying it.....but I'm not finding it to be as ridiculously amazing as many people seem to. But that might change, we'll see!xx
