Recent favourite beauty products

These are some of my favourite beauty products at the moment. All were bought on sale and were well worth it.

I have always wanted to try Briogeo conditioning masks but the price point at full price is too much for me. I have long, thick hair and I use conditioner as a shampoo much of the time. This one was a salon size so great value for money at half price and I love it. Most people wouldn’t say this but I love heavy conditioners and hair masks that weigh down my hair and take away the frizz. Left to it’s own devices, my hair is a frizzy cloud around my head

Sorbet is a great brand, and is very very common in South Africa. Their nail polishes were 3 for 2 when I was there and this colour is gorgeous. It stays on perfectly for about 10 days. This colour was great in summer in South Africa, and now I paint it on my ring fingers, while my other fingers are in dark nude. It’s a great pop of colour in the dark of winter, and I expect to be using it on all my fingers in March. My only regret is that I did not buy more – I would have chosen lemon yellow and pretty pink.

This Nuxe Insta-Masque is interesting. It has a gel texture that turns to an oily scrub which is gentle, smells great, and is not too harsh. It rinses off very easily. I will definitely buy again.

Body Shop Rose products are something I have tried before, but my nose must have been ready for them this time because I am absolutely loving it. Rose-scented products often smell fake, but this is delicate and authentic. Catching a small whiff of it during the day makes me feel happy.
