I should probably annotate this as 'the beauty box edition' as that's where I discovered a lot of the products. Anyway I'm in the middle of two 4000 word essays due in on the 13th May so my usual end/start of the month posts might be a little late. While I'm busy typing away, here are some things on my (probably imaginary) shopping list.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne I'm currently burning a candle in this scent on my desk while I write. One of my essays is on Oscar Wilde and Orientalism so I was hoping the heady pomegranate and woody scent would inspire me a bit. No such luck, but I have taken to dipping my finger into the wax after I've blown it out and rubbing a tiny bit of the wax onto my wrists. It smells absolutely incredible but I think I need to buy the fragrance before I completely destroy the candle.
Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover These kinds of nail polish removers are nothing new, although I still find the sticking-your-finger-in bit a little weird. However I've heard lots of good things about this offering from Bourjois. It's acetone free and contains sweet almond oil, which sounds ideal for my dry nails.
Bobbi Brown Corrector I've just finished up my usual under-eye concealer and this corrector might be just the thing to replace it and tackle my hideous dark circles.
Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum A sample of this new Caudalie serum was included in this month's Glossybox. My skin loved it and it feels very hydrating whilst still being super light on the skin.
KMS Free Shape Hot Flex Spray Another beauty box sample, this time from Joliebox. I'm really picky about hair products but this is really light and holds the style of your hair without making it feel crispy or weighed down with product.
balance Me. Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm Again a product discovered via Joliebox - I think this will be my next cleanser when I've finished the last of my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. It smells amazing and is very gentle but still makes short work of eye makeup.
Have you got your eye on anything?
