Painterly prints

To look at this outfit you'd probably think that I'd bought the top and the shoes at the same time but their similarity was a pure fluke. I bought the top from Ebay (one of my favourite places to grab a bargain) and realised while getting ready for work one day that the shoes were the same colours and design. I kept the rest of my outfit black to make the bright colours pop.

October skincare haul

A change in the weather calls for a skincare rethink and this month I’ve got plenty of new products to try out. The best thing is they were all incredible bargains! My local Factory Shop is selling Sanctuary skincare at rock bottom prices, with gift sets at just £6 and moisturisers and serums for £5. Naturally I snapped up a few items for myself and I may well store a few more away for Christmas presents. I’m most excited about trying the 30 Day Youth Revolution…I love those peel-off face masks!

The cherry on the cake was this gift with purchase for spending £20 on skincare. I wasn’t expecting it, but it was a nice surprise at the checkout!

The second amazing skincare bargain I bagged is this set from Sk:n which was a Groupon offer. The bundle is said to be worth £140 and it was being offered on Groupon for just £25.  I had never tried the brand before but for that price I thought it was worth a punt.  The only slight downside was I had to collect it from one of the Sk:n clinics as home delivery was not an option. Luckily there is one a short tram ride from where I work near Manchester so it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience, especially for that price. There were different options to choose from depending on skin type. I opted for the anti-ageing set which should have included a neck cream, but they had run out of that so gave me a cream to treat mature and sun-damaged skin instead. Included in the set is a voucher for £25 off a treatment at the clinic. I’ll be testing out all of these products and posting a review soon!

 

Have you tried any of these products and if so what did you think to them?
