January Empties


I’m so looking forward to summer. Sure the warm weather and barbecues will be lovely, but it also means longer days and enough light to take decent pictures for this blog. The reason we’re halfway through Feb and I’m only just posting this now is because I was away last weekend and the weekend is the only time I see real daylight at home at the moment.

So this month I finished seven products:

  • Black Rose Cream Mask from Sisley
  • Nourishing Night Cream by Utan and tone
  • Mary-Lou Manager highlighter from theBalm
  • Clear Skin Daily Face Wash from AlphaH
  • Aromessence Néroli Hydrating Oil Serum from Decléor
  • Infallible 24 Hour Matte foundation by L’Oréal
