Christmas Beauty Products

Every time my friend comes over she always she always seems to have a nosy at my dressing table to check up on the makeup and products I am using.  The evening always results in me and her having a lengthy discussion on the pros and cons of most of the various moisturisers and exfoliators etc. that I use daily. I thought that this may benefit not just my friend, but many people that are looking to add a little extra to their beauty routine. So these are my Christmas Beauty Products - all of the things that I've collected over the Christmas period!

I don't really want to do full scale reviews on each and every one of these things for fear of beng boring, as several items have been included. Instead, I will give them my rating out of five stars and a little sentence or two to justify that. I only included my favourite things so don't think I am over rating anything, they all scored quite highly. Enjoy!



Archipelago, Grapefruit Lip Butter

★★★
The packaging and the product are both nice and pretty. It works effectively and is very cute. It missed out on two stars because I could definitely say I have tried out more moisturising lip balms in the past that seem to have a longer term affect than this one.



Tabitha James Kraan, Hair Perfume

★★★★
It has a really good scent to it and is very, very easy to apply.



Yves Saint Laurent, Touch Éclat
Radiant Touch

 ★★★★★
This is my most loved makeup product right now. It is really natural looking once applied and it works well as both a highlighter and a concealer without being cakey.



hj Manicure, Subzero

★★★★
It is a really nice product that it doesn't tend to chip for a long while. Plus, this grey colour goes with almost anything.




Organic Vanilla and Pomegranate Lip Balm

 ★★★★
Although the tub isn't that exciting, the lip balm smells really good and does the trick. It is a small size and easy to carry in your handbag.



Lush, Each Peach (and Two's a Pear) Massage Balm

★★★★★
Finally, this is something I keep replacing once it runs out because I love the smell so much. I use it as if it were a sort of rub on body butter or moisturiser. I like how it is in this form because it isn't freezing cold to apply when you get out of the bath.
