Skincare Samples - Perfect for a weekend away.

Hello my name is Louise and I am a massive hoarder. I’m a magpie to samples, especially the REN and Origins ones. I think it is just an amazing way to try out new products and they are just so travel friendly; especially if you are only away for a night or two and you do not want to be lugging your entire skincare collection with you! As I am away for the next few days (I’m currently writing this on the train) I thought I would share with you what I packed:

Mary-Lou Manizer AKA 'The Luminizer'

So this product definitely adds a lot of luminosity to your complexion, but be warned it is highly pigmented so a little goes a very long way! 

Estee Lauder ANR II & ANR Eye Recovery

2013 was the year I got serious about my skincare and one of my purchases was the newly formulated Advanced Night Repair serum and their Advance Night Eye Recovery Cream. I had not read a bad review of these products so justified to myself that although they do dent the bank balance they will be worth it in the long run. Plus the gift bag you received for buying both was amazing and came with mini sample bottles of both! I have been using both of these for well over six months now and can safely say I love them. I use the eye cream every night whilst the ANR serum gets used most nights, depending on whether I am using an oil or not.

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

I absolutely adore the latest addition to my skincare. I tend to be underwhelmed by products and always want them to work immediately, however I am pleased to say that this ticks all the boxes.

Review | Sleek Face Form

A picture of the Sleek Face Form kit in Light
If you want affordable makeup then Sleek is a brand that you should really check out. I particularly loved their contour kit so when they brought out this Face Form palate I knew I wouldn't be able to resist, especially at the very reasonable price of £9.99. It comes in the very elegant black packaging making it perfect for your daily make up bag or for travelling.
