I have been trying out quite a few new things this month, a lot of which was sent to me, so “blogger mail” if you like. I often do unboxing’s on my snapchat so if you like that sort of thing then add me (jodiemelissaxo). I thought I would do a round up/ first impressions of the best bits and show you a few new things.
SHADOW SWITCH* – £5.99
If you are a little lazy when it comes to washing your brushes (like me) then I think you will love this. Honestly, I was sceptical as to how well this would work. Obviously this isn’t a deep cleanse for your brushes, but to take off excess eyeshadow this is pretty fab. I find it a really handy tool to clean my blending brush when doing a smokey eye look so I don’t have to have more than one brush. I think this would make a fab *dare I say it* stocking filler for any beauty lover.
What a gorgeous package to receive. Having never tried any Roger and Gallet products before I was so excited to get my hands on some. My favourite of the two has to be the Beauty Vinegar, I can’t even put into words how refreshing and lovely this feels on the skin. I have been using this as a toner after cleansing and before moisturising, I find that my skin feels refined and smooth after use, exactly as the product says. The ingredients are gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see the long term effects of integrating this into my routine.
When I saw the wand to this my first impression was that it just wouldn’t work. Typically I prefer bristles over plastic, so this was a little out of my comfort zone. I decided to go for it anyway, when I first used this it added a little too much volume for my liking, making my lashes look a little spider like – Now I have the hang of the applicator and how much to apply, I like how much volume this provides in just one coat, it is incredibly quick and easy to use leaving me with thick, long lashes all day. With no transfer either, which is a massive thing for me as a lot of mascaras let me down when it comes to this.
LITTLE KNOWN BOX* – £14.95
Subscription boxes are great, is there anything better than a little gift for yourself once a month? One thing I have been loving from the box in particular is the Lash Unlimited lashes in the style #8. They remind me of my absolute favourites – Ardell Wispies. Overall I love the packaging and branding of the box, a lovely one to check out if beauty boxes are your thing!
MAGNITONE* – £70
I thought I would save the best till last. I have been wanting to try a facial cleansing brush for about a year now, I have oily skin prone to blackheads and breakouts, so as you can imagine this really appealed to me. I don’t have one bad thing to say about this, if you are on the market for a reasonably priced daily cleansing brush then look out for my autumn/ winter skincare post where I’ll be doing a full review of this little gem!
