Dior j'adore Eau de Parfum

Dior j'adore Eau de Parfum 50ml

This is a recent addition to my perfume collection and although it isn't a fragrance I would usually consider, it has been pleasant to use. J'adore is pure femininity in a bottle, it has a seductive and sophisticated scent which is sure to attract attention. Blended with Ylang Ylang, Rose and a base note of Jasmine, this is a beautiful floral perfume. It's not overpowering on the skin but it does linger throughout the day which makes it perfect for long wear. The bottle itself is just as sultry as the product, with it's curvaceous shape and chic gold detail, it looks stunning placed on my dressing table. I tend to wear this for formal or special occasions as it definitely has a mature manner to it.

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter - £12.00

With all the hype of cleansing balms that arose late last year, I of course chose to feed my curiosity and see how they would work for me. After doing some research I settled on trying out the Clinique Take The Day Off cleansing balm which has served me well for a good 5 months and I adore it! However, as expected, a single tub of this glorious skin saviour does not come cheap selling at £21 and although it could be said it's worth the price you pay, considering how long it's lasted me, it still seems to be quite a large investment. As with most high end products I use I always set out to try and find a more affordable alternative and it seems I have been successful yet again!

Primark Beauty Fashion Nails

Primark Beauty Fashion Nails - £1/50p

On one of my regular browses through Primark I decided to pick up these acrylic nail sets that I had noticed a few of my favourite beauty bloggers posting about. There is a large selection of designs and colours to choose from, typically my local branch had a very limited selection so I was only able to grab a cute apple and spotty/cat printed set to put to the test. Each pack can be bought for just a pound although I have noticed that they are often knocked down to half price. I have never applied false nails in my lifetime and honestly I was slightly apprehensive on using adhesive upon my natural nails but I figured they can't cause that much harm if so many people rave about them.
