Weekend Wonders #1

 I've been meaning to start this new series of posts- Weekend Wonders! Each Weekend I'm going to share with you the products which I'm enjoying at that time.


I like to use minimal makeup at the weekends if I can get away with it, the products which help me look alive and but overly made up is the Dr.Jart* BB Cream Water Fuse, this is from the Dr. Jart* BB Cream collection and is aimed towards, oily-combination skin types. It helps control sebum production, it's perfect for me also because it contains a SPF25.  To combat and diminish my mummy eyes I use and have been using for some time is the RITUALS... Lighten Up Concealer Pen. This has the perfect salmon shade to conceal my blue toned dark circles.
I'm totally smitten with the new limited edition Dr.Hauschka 'Dear Eyes' Spring/Summer eye palette. This has a stunning trio of shadows which look very natural for daytime but can also be intensified with the use of a dark brown matt shade. This is my go-to palette at the moment. I finish off with a coating of mascara, I like to use the Avon Super Extreme Extend. I bought this when it was half price and must say it's actually really good. I like the silicone wand, the formulation is nice and not drying like so many mascaras are. Sticking to my 'minimal' look I like to use a tinted lip balm which so happens to be the KORRES Jasmine Lip Butter, smells scrummy and leaves lips hydrated and pearlescent.


 I enjoy giving my hair an extra treat at the weekend, this so happens to be It's a 10 Leave-In Treatment which smells lovely! I spray this through freshly washed hair and then comb through so all my hair gets a nice little treat. Once my hair is near dry I like to spray a little of the Caudalie Divine Oil on my finger tips, then gently add the majority through the ends first then I normally just sporadically run my hands through all my hair giving it a nice healthy finish. My hair feels really soft and shiney after using this friendly duo!

On the body I'm using the Boots Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub, this was a surprise actually because I pulled this out from my heap of scrubs to use up and found it amazingly good! It smells of yummy cocoa butter. the Sugar Scrub is like a thick paste, I've been scooping out a generous amount and then massaging all over the body. Skin is super soft and hydrated after using this, I couldn't believe how good my skin felt after the first time using this. Then I give my skin another treat using the Caudalie Divine Oil, I spray this over my legs and arms giving my skin a double whammy of hydration! The scent is stunning and lingers on the skin for a little while after.

My skin seems to be a little confused at the moment, one minute it's dry then the next it's greasy! I think it's a sign of dehydration so I've made sure I have used some really hydrating creams and oils on my skin. I've talked about my love for the Clarins Santal Facial Oil many times so I won't bore you all again but it's a god send! If I'm ever in doubt about my skin I always come back to this oil and it seems to correct itself. I was recently sent the L'OCCITANE 25% Shea Butter Ultra Rich Facial Cream. It smells lovely as you would expect and feels so luxurious. You only need a little bit, it's very thick, it works best by warming a little of the product in your hands first and then applying it to the face. Review to follow shortly! Then onto the eyes, I am loving the Clinique Even Better Eyes. I apply this using the cooling tip applicator by gently massaging the peachy cream into my dark circles. You can see how much I'm using this because the writing has nearly come off the tube! Always a good sign a product is weel used and loved in opinion! 

 Then for some relaxation I like to use the BADGER Cheerful Mind Balm during the day or early evening, and light one of my favourite candles- Neom of course! Then snuggle up with my Crochet! I have been contemplating whether to share my latest crafty antics on here but think I may well do a post and see what you all think.
