Dead Sea Spa Magik: BB Cream

dead sea spa magik beauty balm bb cream natural spf 15

One of the products that surprised me most over the last few months has been the Dead Sea Spa Magik BB cream in Natural. I found this in one of my LookFantastic beauty boxes and didn’t have high hopes, as I am not usually a fan of BB creams (or any product that feels the need to use silly letters like CC). This one is a little different though, as I kept reaching for it this summer.

This Works: In Transit Camera Close-Up

In Transit Camera close-up thisworks

If a brand claims a particular product does just about everything at once, I am usually rather sceptical. You know the type I mean: the serum that miraculously deals with twelve different issues at once. Usually, these products just leave me disappointed, even if they are actually quite nice, because they simply don’t live up to the bold claims on the packaging.  So, I approached the In Transit Camera Close-Up by Thisworks with caution as this claims to be a mask,moisturiser, and primer in one.

Goof Proof: Brow Pencil by Benefit

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil 2

When it comes to brows, I am quite lucky. I have natural deep and full brows and have never over-plucked them, so I was one happy camper when the fashion went my way and everybody started wearing clearly defined brows. Thank you Cara Delevigne! I don’t actually touch my brows on a daily basis, but they do look a little smarter for special occasions if filled in with a pencil and kept in place by some gel. So, I was curious to try something from Benefit’s new brow range: the Goof Proof Brow Pencil.

Purging my Stash

Purging the stash

This insane changeable summer weather of late -no honestly, right now it is pouring with rain and grey, yet two days ago I was wandering around in a dress enjoying the sunshine -has been irritating, but those dreary Sundays are perfect for cleaning and organising. Inspired by Stashy from Stash Matters, I decided it was time to get rid of some stuff I simply don’t use and older products that have passed their use by date (in some cases, I am a little ashamed to admit, by quite some margin). Let’s have a look at what is going into the trash.
