I have decided to put together a collection of products I have been loving so much I have used them all up!
Kerastase Ciment Thermique
This is a heat protecting hair serum from Kerastase. It is a hair repairing balm which protects hair from heat styling and repairs hair that is over processed and over styled. I use this on towel dried hair just before straightening it. It reduces overall frizziness and makes my hair feel silky smooth. It also smells amazing!
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat
Everyone in the beauty industry freaked out when YSL changed their holy grail foundation formula and re-branded it as a full coverage foundation, but not me! This is my all time favourite base. It is light in formula and doesn’t feel too heavy on, but it is full coverage! It comes in a range of shades, both yellow based and pinky based, I wear the shade BD01, it is a little pricey at €42 a bottle, but it last ages!
It gives a gorgeous dewy glow while perfecting the skin and blurring any imperfections on the face. It lasts all day and due to the lack of SPF in it it is perfect for nights out and photographs as it has a no flash back. I am also completely in love with the gold YSL packaging! I buff this into the skin daily using the Real Techniques buffing brush! I bought this from Brown Thomas Cork but can be bought on YSL counters nationwide.
Lancome Mousse Eclat
I bought this on a whim when I needed a new facial cleanser. I prefer foam cleansers as I find them a little gentler on the skin. I was nervous about trying this out as I had never used the Lancome skincare range before but I loved it. It lasted ages as one pump of the foaming cleanser washed my whole face. It removed any scrape of makeup or dirt from it leaving my face feel squeaky clean. I will definitely be repurchasing!
Nuxe Precious Scented Shower Oil
I love this range from Nuxe, it literally smells like you have stepped into a spa. I got this shower gel as part of a free gift and I love it so much. I normally don’t have much of an affinity with shower gels but this one was different. It has the same scent as Nuxe’s cult classic multi-use oil and its oil infused formula leaves the skin feeling super soft. It also has gold flecks throughout the shower oil which gives your skin a beautiful glow, it’s gorgeous with a tan!
Lancome Advanced Genefique
I have been using this serum for a good while and I can seriously see what the hype is! It is a FANTASTIC product. Its youth activating concentrate promises younger-looking, radiant skin! Skin is immediately soothed and smoothed, soft to the touch while its anti-ageing properties plumps and nourishes the skin for an all over radiant glow! While it is expensive at €73 for a 30ml bottle this serum should last you a long time as you need only apply 3 drops of the serum across the face and neck!
Lancome Grandiose Liner
The latest innovation in liquid eyeliner comes from Lancome’s bendable brush. It adapts to everyone’s unique eye shape for easy application. It has an incredibly thin tip allows for a precise line and its highly pigmented formula gives a long lasting matte finish that dries in super quickly!
So there you have the products I have loved so much that I used up!
Until next time….
