Sometimes a tiny shift in plans can bring up unwanted comedy.
You see, when I planned my content for September, which was long before my summer holiday started mid-august, the last prerecorded video was an Empties one (here in case you missed it). And to go with the video, I wrote a whole post on how little I was buying, how sensible and mindful I was with my shopping, yada yada yada.
Originally I had planned to upload a holiday vlog next, but then I last minute decided to post my vlogs on Wednesdays (here and here if you missed them) and instead film a fashion haul.
To go with the fashion filmed I wanted to share my skincare and makeup shopping on the blog and it turns out it was quite a bit. Which is a little ironic, reading me bang on about how little I buy on Monday and then see the gigantic amount of skincare I shopped just a week later.
But such is life, so please smile, forgive me and keep on reading for my skincare haul summer 2017.
The ones I repurchased
Every woman, even one with an overflowing stash, has products she doesn´t want to be without. And if they are French, you shop them in France.
My love for face mists is evident when you look through my routines, and the Caudalie Grape Water (Review here) is one that I really wanted a backup of. One huge bottle for my skincare drawer, a tiny one for my necessities drawer at the office and I am well prepared for the heating period to start.
Another (almost) repurchase is the Klorane Dry shampoo, this time in the version with nettle for oily hair. I have used the original version for a long time and now want to see if this one works even better.
And a staple for the colder months: The Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm. It is a thick and matte one, not one to reapply throughout the day, but a layer of this at night keeps my lips from suffering too much through cold and wind.
The only makeup item
Have you ever been to Sephora and left with just one item? No, me neither. Until now. I was wandering the isles for a long time, but the only thing I picked up in the end was the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I wanted to pick up the version for oil control too, to compare them, but after minutes staring at the ingredient list I couldn´t for the life of me notice anything that was different, so I went for the original.
The ones bloggers made me buy
On my recent post on hyperpigmentation (here), the lovely Shireen from Reflection of Sanity mentioned the La Roche Posay Reviderm C as a great and underrated product. I hadn´t even heard of it before, but took the opportunity to pick one up and put it to the test.
A brand that I have seen popping up on blogs I follow was the brand Darphin. And as it is a French brand and they had a cute little trial set on offer when I visited the pharmacie, it would have been rude not to pick something up. With the colder months fastly approaching I went for the hydrating option. The kit contains the Hydraskin Light, the Hydraskin serum and the Rose essential oil.
And because the bottles looked fun and I had forgotten to bring one, I picked up the Honey shampoo and the White Peach and nectarine shower gel from Le Petit Marseillais. The scent on both is amazing, I enjoy using them, but I don’t really feel the need to rushout and buy backups. Which, to be honest, is rarely ever the case with body and hair care.
