But let's start with some hair products - I was so happy to find Macadamia products in one of the hair care shops that I got a rejuvenating shampoo and a moisturizing rinse in the smaller size, which is just perfect for trying something new. I did a review of the deep repair masque and the hair oil a while back and since I was very impressed by those products I'm now very excited to try these new ones. I will of course come back with a separate review of them in a little while.
Isadora, and they have amazing shades and products at very affordable prices. the nail polishes are in the same price range as Barry M and the other makeup products are about the same as Maybelline. I know that you can get Isadora products in other countries, but for some reason we don't have it here in the UK and there's not even a decent selection online. So if you know where to get hold of Isadora in the UK - please do let me know! So based on that, I stocked up on some of the things that I'd seen lately. I got a few different nail polishes - a gorgeous lustruous opaque purple, a browny olive bronze and a sky blue shade in a textured formula that reminds me of Zoya's Pixie Dust, and if you've read my blog previously you know how much I love this sugar crusted concept, so I'm really looking forward to trying this.
I also got a palette (yes I know... not another one) with only matte shades in gorgeous soft neutral greys and pinks - LOVE it, a lovely bubblegum pink gloss chubby stick for lips, eyeliners in a dark metallic olive green, a metallic steel blue and a nude eyeliner for the lower waterline for a neutral bright eyed look and again I'll let you know more about them once I've had a chance to try them properly.
Now we come to the batch from Sephora, where I picked up some items from the Sephora body care collection that I had tested a very long time ago, and regretted not buying when I had the chance then. But I wasn't going to miss out again and I got a smoothing body scrub, a moisturizing body lotion, a fragrance spray and two bath tablets in the most amazing Mango scent ever. I know that the Body Shop has a very popular and nice Mango range, but for me it lacks that soft musky richness of a genuine mango smell. The Sephora collection scent is nothing like that; it's juicy and zesty but at the same time delicate, soft and sweet without being sickly - it's truly delicious and I've already worn it a few times since I came back, getting lots of compliments for it.
I have been planning a giveaway for a while to celebrate my first 100 followers both on GFC and Bloglovin, and since I love these products so much I thought I would give one of you the chance to get the same mini pampering set in Mango from Sephora. To my international followers - I'm really sorry, but unfortunately this giveaway is for UK only but I am planning on doing an international giveaway at my next milestone which is 200 followers.
A big thank you to everyone for following me and for all of your lovely comments, and don't forget to enter the giveaway below! Good luck!
