Lately I've Been Lovin' #3

Quite a lot of the products I've been loving and using to death lately are all in the same type of 'family'. I cant get enough of spritzers/toners and the two I've been using are the complete opposite of eachother.

The Love List

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - I started off with the 30ml bottle but after just a few days I knew it was a keeper! I went online and ordered the 100ml bottle which should be around £32 but I found it on GorgeousShop for £25. I havent even used 1/4 of the 100ml bottle yet but when Zuneta were having a flash sale I managed to get my hands on a Caudalie gift set containing 100ml Beauty Elixir, mask and moisturiser for under £26! Bargain. For me it isnt some miracle product, to be honest I havent noticed any difference in my skin, it hasnt tightened my pores and I cant say it adds a burst of radiance either but I love the tingling feeling it leaves on the skin, especially when my cheeks flare up. I dont find it adds any moisture to the skin so if thats something you're looking for then I wouldnt recommend this. I personally love the smell, its really fresh and calming but I know a lot of people cant stomach it. I've done a full review, you can read it here.(link)

Elizabeths Daughter The Skin Spritz* - If you're looking for a toner/spritz that adds a lot of moisture then this is one to have a look at. It can be used on the face and body but I mainly use it on my face. Elizabeths Daugther is an organic brand and none of the products contain harmful ingredients. The scent is gorgeous but I'm not sure exactly what it is, its just lovely. The spritz contains Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Strawberry Cells, Rose Water and glycoproteins from Mountain Balm. Used after cleansing, my skin feels as if it doesnt even need moisturiser. It soothes any irritated skin and has a brightening effect. I know its how well the product works that counts but like the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, The Skin Spritz feels special because of the glass packaging and the fine mist ensure you dont end up with product dripping off your face. The Skin Spritz £15 from ElizabethsDaughter.

Lavera All Round Cream - As the name suggests, its a brilliant all round cream! Sinks into the skin quickly, isnt heavy or greasy and has a fresh lemon sherbet type scent.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - I really dont know why I turned my nose up at this for so long! Read my full review here (link). I havent been wearing it in this weather, I havent been wearing any makeup at all but if any redness flares up I'll just buff on a tiny bit to cover it. £26.50 from Estee Lauder counters.

Lanolips* - By far the best lip treatment I've ever tried! My local Boots doesnt seem to stock Lanolips but I'll definitely pick up a few more at some point. The colour ointment contains SPF so its great for this weather. You can read more here (link). £7.99/£9.18

Nails Inc Peach Sorbet - Gorgeous colour - awful gloopy consistency, which makes it an absolute nightmare to apply but the colours just so summery and pretty :)

Benefit Brow Zings - I've mentioned this brow kit a few times before. I love it but was only ever using the wax as the powder was a bit too full on for me, I always ended up looking like someone had stuck two strips of felt above my eyes but lately I've been mixing the powder and wax together on the angled brush and it works great.

Green And Spring Reviving Face Mask* - I'm such a mask hoe! I'm flipping between about 6 different masks at the minute depending on what my skin needs but every 'mask night' I keep reaching for this, the rest arent even getting a look in. Full review will be up soon.

I'm still loving everything from my last Love List but I'm going off L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic a bit. It doesnt seem to have much hold so within a few hours my lashes drop and are almost straight, not a good look. If you've found any mascaras that are great at holding a curl let me know. :)
