I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Latest purchase: Bliss Steep Clean 15 Minute Facial Mask

I recently read a review over at Alpha Blonde about a face mask that she really loved, called Bliss Steep Clean 15 Minute Facial Mask. She seemed to love it so much I simply could not resist ordering this myself as well.

I got it over at my usual beauty haul headquarters ASOS, and even though it is a bit pricey, if it is anything at all like Alpha Blonde described, it should be well worth it.

I am really looking forward to trying this product, I can't wait for it to get here already!

Great beauty Christmas gifts

A lot of my friends really like beauty products as well, so I end up giving them beauty products for the holidays a lot of the time. If you would like to do that as well, here are some tips regarding what you could get them:
Freeze 24/7 Plump Lips Ice Sticks, that makes your lips bigger and fuller, while adding color at the same time. Available in several colors and really does work wonders! From Strawberrynet.
The Decleor Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Natural Beauty Collection, with a face cream, face mask and aromessence. A wonderful line (one of my favorites) that can really benefit anyone who lives in a bigger city (like me). Also available over at Strawberrynet.
Clarins Travel Vanity Collection, which is also available at Strawberrynet for a great price. Very useful for anyone who travels a lot and doesn’t want to lug tons of make up with them.
The Murad Blemish Control Starter Kit, which is a great kit for anyone who suffers from blemishes from time to time. I personally love this kit, which lasts for a really long time, and have previously mentioned that here. Also available on Strawberrynet.
Fun eyelashes, available for just £15.00 over at ASOS. Not something you would wear every day, I agree, but so much fun for parties!
A Clarisonic Mia, which will definitely be the best present the receiver has ever gotten if you give this to someone. Just ask any Clarisonic owner, they rock! You can get them in tons of different places, such as over at ASOS.
Any L Occitane set, because they are so luxurious, smell so nice and make awesome presents too. You can find these in any L Occitane store or over at ASOS.

Why did I choose to feature products from Strawberrynet and ASOS in this post?
The reason is simple, they both offer free shipping worldwide and great prices, so no matter where you live, ordering from them is a good idea.

Good luck!

My first Murad products

Something else I got recently was a Murad set for blemish prone skin, to use when I get blemishes. I got this set on ASOS, where it is still for sale.
This set consists of small bottles and tubes of Clarifying Cleanser, Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel, Acne Spot Treatment, Skin Perfecting Lotion, and Oil-Control Mattifier from the Murad skin care line, and I have to say I usually don't like ready sets like this, because I simply prefer buying full sized products, in case I like them and want to keep using them.
But these Murad products last for surprisingly long, even if they come in rather small packages, since you really don't have to use a lot of each product to see results.

So if you are also looking to try Murad's products, I very much recommend getting a trial set like this.

I really liked the products, they work well if you have blemishes, and most of them smell really good too. The only product that has a smell I am not too fond of is the Oil-Control Mattifier, but even the smell of that isn't really, really bad or anything.

To sum up: My first experience with Murad turned out to be a really positive one, and I will definitely be getting more of their products in the future.

My latest L'Occitane buys

I love L'Occitane and their products for most things. I actually only started using their products around 3 or 4 years ago, when I was given a very generous gift certificate by some friends for my birthday, to use at L'Occitane.

So I get L'Occitane products on a regular basis and one of my favorite lines by L'Occitane is the Red Rice skincare series. This skincare series is for people with oily or combination skin and I have to say it smells divine (like most L'Occitane products). It also does wonders for those with combination skin. You get the best results if you use the whole series, of course, but I tend to buy just the cleanser and toner, since the Red Rice moisturizer is really small, expensive and doesn't last very long. The cleanser and toner do, however, and that is the reason I have kept buying these.
I had also heard very good things about L'Occitane's scented candles, so I decided to get one of those as well. Since the holidays are quickly approaching, I decided to go for the Spicy Cinnamon one, which smells wonderful and last for ages (I have already started using it, and the scent is just perfect: noticeable but not too strong).
