I'm very lucky that I get sent some amazing products, and today I wanted to share with you a handful that are currently on trial in my collection, along with my first impressions.
First up is this By Terry Travel Exclusive* from World Duty Free, which has miniatures of some of the brand's beauty favourites including their Ombre Blackstar and Baume De Rose. You get a generous amount of each product, which will be perfect for trying it out to see whether you like it before committing to purchasing the full sized versions. The Ombre Blackstars are already one of my favourite cream eyeshadows and the shade Bronze Moon looks beautiful in the Summertime.
Fresh are one of my all-time favourite skincare brands because there isn't a product that my complexion hasn't absolutely loved, plus some of my go-to skin saviours come from this brand. When this parcel turned up I was super excited as I haven't tried them before which is always exciting. The first product I was attracted to was the Sugar Chocolate Lip Balm* which is exactly what it says on the tin. It smells exactly like chocolate, which isn't something I usually enjoy, but it's now enticed me to possibly try their Mango option too.
Next is their Peony Instant Brightening Face Serum* which I was so excited to get my hands on as I love a lightweight formula in the Summer and just having the word 'peony' in the name makes me happy. I've tried it a fair few times and my first impressions is that my skin absolutely loves it. It instantly perks up my complexion and using it before makeup makes my base go on much smoother - we shall see!
Lastly is the Black Tea Overnight Mask* which I slathered on pretty sharpish after it arrived as their Rose Face Mask* is one of my most reached for treatments when my skin is playing havoc. It smells delicious and the formula works well with my dry skin, but I will have to report back at a later date.
An exciting Cult Beauty package arrived and I was so excited to delve in as their deliveries have served me some of this year's favourite products. The Ecococo Body Scrubs* were the first thing I spotted and I was so intrigued by them that I used the coconut vanilla offering that night. They can be used as both body scrubs to help prep your limbs and get rid of dry patches, or sprinkled in your bath to help you relax. Let me tell you now, the vanilla one smells absolutely insane; like so yummy you could actually eat it.
Next up is the Lixir Soft Clay Rubber* mask which has a clay-type formula and helps to exfoliate too. I think the name suggested to me that it was going to be like one of those rubber masks that cover your eyes and lips and this was going to be an convenient at-home version, but having another clay mask to try is exciting nevertheless.
I haven't really given the new Becca collection a second look until the Chrissy Teigen Glow Gloss* came through and now I'm intrigued. Despite it being a lipgloss formula, it's quite pigmented and the shade Beach Bum is a summery nude hue.
Nuxe have now come out with fragrances and I got sent two of them, Le Matin Des Possibles* and Le Soir Des Possibles*, the latter being my favourite of the two as it's slightly fresher and easier to wear. They are both eau de perfumes which means they last a long time on the skin and both of these seriously pack a punch - perfect for those who love a strong fragrance.
