First I'd like to congratulate the lovely @wordsfromsarah over on Twitter for being the winner in my 4,444 follower Giveaway (previous post)! There will be a rather mouthwateringly cute cream blush on its way to her shortly! And thank you so much to all my followers for following me and for entering my comps! Keep your eyes open for more Christmas run up comps and giveaways!
Second, we come to this post! I had a small amount in my PayPal account so I challenged myself to order some essential only items, and get at least 3 items for under £22 including P&P! As I'm, shall we say, fonder of the higher end beauty goodies, this is a challenge! Essential, quality, at least 3, under £22.
So, off I toddled to my favourite online beauty retailer Escentual.com to see what I could come up with, but still needing the excitement of something cute! That's just all part of the fun isn't it?
So within 10 minutes, I'd met my challenge (far too easily I must say!) and stocked up on my Bioderma Micellar water at £6.66 each (oh yes, they had my beloved 1/3 off French Pharmacy goods!), I had to get two of these because they go out of stock so quickly, and my most favourite lip balm EVER, which feels so good, its a perfect rival to my previously favoured Sisley lip balm at the mad, but justified, price of £40! But no, my Nuxe Reve De Miel Honey nourishing lip balm is of equal quality, although at a usual RRP of no less than £9, its still something I don't buy too often. So with the 1/3 off, giving a sale price of £6.33 it was perfect! And to add to the treat factor, it was in limited edition colours to celebrate 20 years of this nourishing and famed lip balm! You could choose the colour too, so I went for this lovely green, just because it made it look very vintage, much like its original jar.
I can't begin to tell you how much you must try this lip balm, it really IS an essential, albeit more on the luxury rather than budget side! And Bioderma, well, I can't live without my Bioderma, its just perfect for my combination skin!
I will have to leave you there, with a pretty picture as my 8 week old kitten has decided to fall asleep on my iPad which is making typing rather difficult!
Take care my lovelies!
