I would really, really like to be one of these gorgeous girls who do beauty blogs, and get sent cool products and have people pay them 20 euros a month to advertise on their blogs. But blogging about beauty stuff is SUCH a faff. Not only do you have to make sure the products look cool, but you also should do swatches and find the info about them… writing about life and general stuff is so much easier. BUT I still want to blog about beauty stuff.
So, I thought I’d condense everything down to a monthly post about one product I really like, and one product I don’t like as much. Simples! I think I’ll try and do the empties as well, since that’s kind of fun.
My product of the month for October was this awesome shower gel I got for my birthday from the gorgeous Nicole. It’s the Rituals Zensation shower gel – she gave me one more but I’ve not tried it yet. The first time I used it, I wasn’t expecting it to… squirt… so strongly across the room. So it left my bathroom looking like… well… someone had sprayed white stuff all over it. But since then I know how to control it so it doesn’t spray everywhere!
The smell is gorgeous. And it lasts, too. I get wiffs of scent up until lunchtime at work. The thickness of the gel is awesome – so bubbly and foamy. It makes a great shaving aid.
I’d never used any Rituals stuff before but I’m definitely an addict now! I’ll be stocking up on more once these are used up, for sure!
My product that ISN’T the product of the month is this Iroisie BB cream. It came with my JolieBox last month and I was pretty excited to try it since I like BB creams.
It’s very thick – I tried using as little as possible but my face still felt like it was caked in makeup. It clung to my pores (despite me preparing my skin the way I usually do to hide my pores) and it also made me break out so much. I wore it for one day last week and I’m still getting rid of the spots I acquired from my day wearing this.
What’s more than that – I looked it up online and it’s almost 3o pounds to buy!!! On your bike, Iroisie! I’d rather spend the money on a high class foundation that won’t make me break out!
If you’ve tried either of these products, do let me know in the comments!
