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.
