So, mini products, they just the cutest huh? Beauty monthly subscription boxes, free gifts with purchases, and all that jazz doing the rounds around the beauty world – I end up just throwing them in a big box, and never really give them any attention.
So I have picked out the best of the best of the minis in my stash, and have finally give them the attention they most definitely deserve.
Bioderma Sensibio H20: The queen of micellar waters. Yes it is a tad more expensive than the highstreet ones, but this is streets ahead. This removes everything, heavy eye-make up, hard core stay on all day foundation. No rubbing, no scent, no irritation. It is just a pure pleasure to use.
Pixi Glow Tonic: I have used this for many years now, an exfoliating toner that I use a couple of times a week. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and exfoliated, without the use of any micro-beads. It is a very easy, and quick way to revitalise, brighten, and soften dull, and tired skin.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum: First time trying this cult product, and I like. I use every other night, it feels cooling and hydrating on the skin, and sinks in pretty quickly. I am not to sure about the scent. Overall improvements include texture, and my skin feeling tighter and firmer.
Emma Hardie Radiance Facial Oil: A sucker for a facial oil, as you all have gathered, the smell of this oil is by far the nicest I have ever smelt. Packed full of 9 essential oils, I suppose you wouldn’t expect anything less. It feels super luxurious, nourishing and non greasy. An absolute treat.
Foreo: This sample Foreo caught my eye, and I thought I would try the £30 sample (100, one minute uses) before forking out on the £90 rechargeable one. Less scary than a Clarisonic, this cleansing device vibrates its way around the face. Aiming to help de-clog pores, and loosen dead skin cells, this baby pimps up the whole taking the make-up off lark, to a new level. I use with my second cleanse, and I love the way my skin feels after.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream: The serums Sista, from another mister. This is cooling, hydrating, my eyes are less puffy and dry when using this every night. A little goes a long way. I love the texture, it feels a little like a serum, but with the creaminess and nourishing factor that a moisturiser would offer.
All hail the minis!
