Love At First Use!

20 Dec 2013

Ever bought a product and fell in love straight away? Sometimes I think you just know whether you're going to get along with a product or not, and for me, the three products above are those in question. I bought all three products nearly two weeks ago, and literally can't stop using them! So here is a mini review of each, with my initial thoughts. :)

Soap and Glory products have long been a fixture in my bathroom cabinet, but somehow I hadn't tried the Pulp Fiction Body Scrub before. Now I don't know how I lived without it! It has a gorgeous scent, really fruity as the name suggests and although its grainy and feels like its really buffing your skin, its not painful like some body scrubs can be. I've used this every day in the shower now for about 2 weeks, and my skin really does feel noticeably smoother and softer. I slather on the Sugar Crush Body Wash (my favourite scent!) after using the scrub, and it literally feels like a dream smoothing it on. Just SO soft! So far? Its love. :)

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is most likely a staple in many a beauty bloggers stash, but I hadn't gotten around to trying it. When I saw it with £3 off in Boots a few weeks back however, I couldn't resist! I use it before my morning routine and last thing at night. My skin really does seem noticeably clearer and its helped to clear up a little breakout I had recently. I loveee how quickly it sinks into the skin without leaving you feeling tacky. Only needing a small amount for the whole face and neck is great too, it'll definitely last a while! So far? Its love. :)

Lastly, after re-purchasing the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer a zillion times I decided to branch out and finally try the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. I loved the foundation throughout summer when I wanted a healthy glow, but I'd never gotten round to trying the concealer. I love the consistency of this, its so creamy and blends out really well. Its quite a high coverage which is great, and brightens under my eyes nicely. I hear its a dupe for the Nars Creamy Concealer which just makes me want to try the Nars version even more! So far? Its love. :)

Do you find yourself loving products straight away, or does it take you a while to decide?



  1. I really want to try the La Roche- Posay Effaclar Duo, heard so many amazing things about it!
