Beauty Haul: The Body Shop, Essie, Macadamia & More

Beauty Haul

The Body Shop

Bioderma Essie Pupa

Macadamia Hair

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire

Hi girls! Hope you are all well! <3 So I recently went shopping and got some lovely beauty bits and I decided that it would be fun to share them with you today! I got some really exciting things from Macadamia, Essie, The Body Shop and some other places too, hope you’ll enjoy! ((:

Pupa Professionals Smoothing Foundation Primer in #1

The first thing I got was actually a gift from my mum. She got me this Pupa Professionals Smoothing Foundation Primer in #1 while she was abroad for a business meeting. I was pleasantly surprised to see this product since I would never actually pick it up myself. For some reason I am not a huge fan of Pupa makeup but this primer sounds very promising! It is a silicone base foundation primer which is supposed to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to minimize the appearance of pores. Plus, on the packaging it says that it enhances the staying power of the foundation. :) This primer comes in four different versions: #1 TRANSERENT (mine) which is great for all skin types, #2 GREEN - corrects skin redness and couperose, #03 VIOLET - great for olive skins and #4 ROSE - mattifies mixed to oily skins. I am super excited to try this out and I will surely do a review on it soon! :)

The Body Shop - Body Butter Duo with Floral Acai

I absolutely love The Body Shop’s skin care products and their body butters are my all-time favorites. I’ve been using only the regular butters so when I saw the Duo version I decided to give it a go and see what the difference is. I picked up the Floral Acai one because I heard someone rave about the scent and I quite like it too. It definitely smells like some exotic fruit! :) The Body Butter Duo comes with two different in consistency body moisturizers, one for normal and one for dry skin. The Normal Skin one looks more like a lotion rather than butter to me, whereas the Dry Skin one has the same thick consistency as the original butters from The Body Shop. I’m planning on using the lotion on my entire body and the butter just on the places where my skin is really dry (knees, elbows etc.). I will certainly update you guys on how I get along with this stuff! (:

The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

If you are a long term reader of my blog then you probably know about my obsession with TBS’s Coconut Body Butter. I absolutely ADORE this product! It not only smells divine and reminds me of the hot summer beach days, but it makes my skin super soft! It is so rich and hydrating and if you haven’t tried it – you should! I feel like I will continue repurchase this forever haha! I even did a post on it and you can have a peek here.

The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Hand Cleanse Gel

The last thing I picked up from The Body Shop is this lovely hand sanitizer. I am obsessed with hand sanitizers and I am even planning on doing an entire ‘Hand Sanitizer Collection’ post. I just love how clean and refreshing they make my hands feel! The one I got from TBS is the Pink Grapefruit one because I have the scrub in this scent and I seriously can’t stop sniffing it – it smells incredible! I think that this is my new favorite beauty product smell (sorry Soap & Glory!) and you should go and at least sniff this hand cleanser! I’m sure you’ll love it if you are someone like me who loves citrusy scents. :))

Macadamia Travel Bag Set

As you may know I am a massive fan of Macadamia! I have their Deep Repair Hair Masque and I seriously can’t imagine my life without it lol! It works absolute wonder on my hair and so when I saw the Travel Set a few weeks ago I needed to pick it up because it contains six Macadamia minis and this is a great way to try out new products! The set come with:

1. Rejuvenating Shampoo 3.3oz
2. Moisturizing Rinse 2oz
3. Healing Oil Treatment 1oz
4. Deep Repair Masque 3.3oz
5. Nourishing Leave-In Cream 2oz
6. Healing Oil Infused Comb
7. Travel Bag

I already tried the shampoo and the Healing Oil and they are both amazing!! As soon as I try everything out I will do a full on review on everything so keep your eyes peeled for that! :)

Essie – Cute as a Button

Another Essie nail polish, I know… but I can’t help it! I love Essie so much and I was on a hunt for the perfect summer nail color and then I saw it staring at me – Cute as a Button! The most beautiful coraly pink! I am wearing at the moment and I am already in-love! It applied well (even though it was a bit runny) and it has a fab glossy finish! *review and swatches coming up soon*

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

Yet another bottle of my favorite skin care products! This is probably the 10th time I’ve repurchased Bioderma and I feel like I will be always rebuying it. It removes my makeup and tones my skin amazingly! I can’t recommend this enough and highly suggest you giving it a go if you haven’t already! <33

Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Perfume

And the steal the show, I finally got the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Perfume, which I have had my eyes (or nose?) for a while! A month or so ago I went to Sephora and bought some things and they gave me a sample of this heaven sent fragrance. I loved it straight away but since I have way too many perfumes at the moment I couldn’t justify buying a new one… But I honestly couldn’t resist it and eventually caved and I am so happy that I did! It has definitely become my new favorite perfume it smells so wonderful!  La Petite Robe Noire has notes of black cherry, almond, berries, rose, licorice, black tea, tonka bean, vanilla, and patchouli (according to Temptalia). Oh, and how beautiful the bottle is, such a masterpiece! <33

Thank you lovelies so much for reading and I will talk to you again really soon! Have a great week! (:

Lots of love,
Andrea
