♡ New In : Bits and Bobs

September 30, 2013

I've actually had this candle for quite a while but as we've had such an amazing summer, I haven't really been in the candle burning kind of mood. Now that Autumn is officially here I've dug this out of storage and have been really enjoying snuggling up with a cup of tea whilst this burns in the background - so cosy!

With my Bioderma running low I thought I would test out the L'Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution as it was on offer at boots and I'd heard they were quite similar. I haven't been using this for long but so far so good. I wouldn't say it's quite as good as Bioderma at removing makeup but it's not bad either, plus it hasn't irritated my skin. If your looking for a cheaper alternative to Bioderma this would be a good one to try.

I'd mentioned in my Daily Haircare Post that I was thinking of purchasing the L'Oreal EverRiche Nourishing and Taming Shampoo and Conditioner, so when I spotted a 3 for 2 offer at boots I just couldn't resist. I've been using these for just over two weeks now and I love them. They leave my hair feeling so soft and smelling amazing! 

These cute little owls are actually salt and pepper pots that I found whilst browsing a local gift shop. At the moment i'm just using them as ornaments on my shelf but perhaps i'll eventually get round to filling them with salt and pepper, we'll see!

As I don't live anywhere near a Kiko retailer I was super excited when I stumbled across one of their stores in Palma whilst on holiday. Despite a hefty session of swatching I left with only this Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in the colour 06. It was a pretty good choice though as it's been my 'go-to' eye colour for the past two weeks. It looks gorgeous swiped across the lid and blended out with a finger - It also lasts all day without smudging and hardly any fading. 

What do you think of my purchases?

  7. I've bought the same cleansing water from Loreal and it burned to bad, I just use a small amount each time now, but I'm not 100% happy with that.
    However, I also got a small cute porcelain owl and I love it :D
