Paula’s Choice Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion
– I’ve been through quite a lot of these hydralight lotions, and it’s safe to say they are my favourite from the Paula’s Choice range of day moisturisers. This is a great product to use year-round if you have normal skin. It does a great job of hydrating while being nice and lightweight, and I find that it sinks into the skin really easily. I’m still not a huge
fan of the scent (a bit like what I imagine a sea cucumber would smell like), but at this point I think I’m just used to it.
Paula’s Choice Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner – Similarly to the lotion, I’ve been through a large number of these toners, and they’re definitely one of my favourites. This is also a product that works well year-round if you have normal skin. As with most toners, I don’t notice a huge difference in my skin when using this, but my face always felt nicely refreshed and that’s good enough for me.
Glasshouse Candle in Montego Bay – It took me about six months to burn through this candle, I know this because I ordered a few when I first moved from Perth to Adelaide. This candle was in my office, and I would burn it in the afternoons while I worked or when I would sit in my reading chair on weekends. This remains one of my favourite fragrances from Glasshouse, the combination of coconut and lime is nice and bright and smells really refreshing.
Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturiser – This has been kicking around in my cupboard for quite a while now, and it was nice to finally use it up. I love this as a body moisturiser, it feels rich and nourishing on the skin and the shea butter fragrance was lovely. Unfortunately Jergen are not cruelty-free, so I will not be repurchasing this and will be making a conscious effort to seek out a cruelty-free product instead.
Firebird Perfume Oil in Almond Milk – This is an old-school product for me — I’ve had this sitting in my perfume collection for YEARS because I didn’t want to finish it. Because I’ve been working from home this year I haven’t been wearing as much perfume, and when I did want to wear a fragrance I would reach for this because it was lovely and subtle. This has reignited my interest in these perfume oils, and I’m planning on browsing Etsy at some stage in the near future to see what is currently available.
[sample] Tatcha Violet-C Mask – My friend Caitlin had been raving about this mask for ages, so I picked up a sample when I was shopping at Mecca recently. I absolutely love this mask. So much so that I purchased a full-size version after using up this sample. I highly recommend checking this out if you’re in the market for a brightening mask that will help even out your skintone.
[sample] SK-II R.N.A Power – This was a sample that came with my recent Adore Beauty order, and I was excited to try my first ever SK-II product. I liked this as a day cream, but it was nothing groundbreaking for me and certainly nothing that I could justify the price tag for.
