First of all, yes this is really only the second update. I was so surprised when I realised I've only updated once before this year, but at least I'm getting around to it now. So without further ado, let's see how I've done since last time.
I wasn't sure if there was any point to writing a review on this as it's pretty much sold out everywhere, but decided to make a review of it anyway. Partly due to whisperings that this will indeed become a permanent part of the Tom Ford lineup (Nude Dip came back, so why not this?), partly because it is still available some places and most of all because I know that I still love to read wether limited edition items I missed out on were really worth it or if I can try to move on from my "skippers regret".
Toners are probably the skincare product most are divided on wether or not is necessary to use. You'll find just as knowledgeable professionals as the other either recommending them wholeheartedly, or telling you it's one to skip. Personally I love toner and could never skip the step. I've found some absolute favourites I've shared before and am always looking to try new ones. As a fan of quite a few of La Prairie's products it was just a matter of time before I picked up one of their beautifully packaged toners. I ended up with the Cellular Refining Lotion, or the blue one as I like to call it.
There's quite a few products for my August empties post! I've finally finished a few hair styling products which I'm very excited about. I've got way too many and they seem to take an absolute lifetime to finish. I've got a few skincare staples in here and unfortunately just a small amount of makeup items. I thought I'd have some more, but those products will be in my September empties instead! With just a few months left of the year I need to step up my game if I want to even come close to my final numbers for last year!
August was quite a month for me. My brother got married, I started looking for jobs and got one, and started it straight! I've let the blog on the side as I've gotten used to the new job, which I'm sure you all understand! My August favourites are a mix of favourites I've re-purchased for my brothers wedding and fool-proof ones to make sure I've got my best face on for interviews and eventually the first days at my new job. All absolutely great products that I'm excited to share with you all.
Kate Somerville's Goat Milk Cream has been consistently raved about for years and is something I've always wanted to try. When Megan and I did a swap around new years I knew this was the number one thing I wanted to request. I was super excited when it finally landed at my doorstep and I'm happy to say I haven't been the least bit disappointed.
After the very successful launch of the Dual Intensity eyeshadows Nars is now following up with the first limited edition versions as part of their Fall 2015 Collection called 'Private Screening'. The collection also consists of another Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in 'Telesto' which is a beautiful warm bronze brown. I've only picked up Pasipahae from the collection and that is what I'll be talking about today.
Rodin's Olio Lusso is one of those products I wanted to try for the longest time, but never did. Mostly as it's quite expensive and I've always got so much other skincare on rotation I never felt I could quite justify it. However, around new years my curiosity got the better of me and I bought it after all. It was all very exciting.
I had never heard of Pangea Organics either, until this year. Pangea takes organic to the next level, where it's also about sustainable production and using packaging that can be recycled. The products themselves are 100% plant-based, but the boxes the products come in is what I find amazing. The boxes incorporate organic seeds, so if you take the label off and soak the box in water you can actually plant it! I'm all for preserving the earth, so when I learned this I got really excited to try the brand and really wanted to like it.
I guess I kind of ended up taking a bit of an unplanned break from the blog, sorry guys! I had my brothers wedding and then I've felt a bit under the weather so this post has taken a while to finish. There's quite a lot of stuff here though, which I'm of course excited about. There's also a lot of good products so you'll probably get a mini review of at least something you've been curious about!
