Beauty Haul & Favourites

So I've been meaning to do a beauty haul for a while and I thought whilst I was at it I would write a little personal review about the items featured. In the last year my interest in skin products in particular has grown. I was so surprised with how much a skin regime can help with my dry skin! If any of you who read this post have any suggestions on anything that could help my dry skin I would love to hear from you! 

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash: 
So I have loved the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush range for a long time. My addiction started with their exfoliating scrub (which Is my favourite exfoliater ever!). The scent is gorgeous. It's very limey and fresh and really wakes you up in the morning. It retails at £6.50 which I think for the size of the body wash is great value for money.

Malin + Gotez Vitamin b5 body moisturiser:
I stumbled across this moisturiser and it's amazing. My face went through a stage of being prone to spots and this moisturiser really helped to give me a clearer complexion. It's a little pricier than I would like but I would definitely recommend it if your budget stretches to it.

Argan Oil of Morocco:
The reviews for this argan oil are really good and I can't say I'm surprised. The oil makes my hair feel super soft and I'm seriously hoping over time it will help improve my split ends (as It claims too). For the price I would definitely recommend this great product!

Ultimate Blends Shampoo & Conditioner:
Now I know you're supposed to change your shampoo and conditioner every 2 weeks (to protect your hair), but this set is the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used. And I've used a lot. It contains argan oil which I think is probably the reason why I love the effect it has on my hair. It's so much glossier when I use this product and in general makes my hair much softer.

Arbonne Make up Primer:
Arbonne is a bit different to other companies, so don't be surprised if you haven't come across them yet. I was lucky enough to trial their 'genius' products and a few other of their skin range products and I fell in love with the quality. The reason why I bought this primer Is because it almost feels matte when you apply it to your skin but doesn't dry your skin out. I was so impressed with the affect it had on my make up staying in place and I'm so happy to share this company with you. If you would like to purchase anything from Arbonne visit their website.

DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY LUSH'S SHOP. I absolutely love lush. I know a lot of people find the smell of the shop overwhelming, but the people are so friendly every time I go into lush.

The butter ball is very similar to the king of skin. It's a bath bomb which leaves residue floating in your bath (It sounds weirder than it is) which you can grab and rub into your skin. It's very moisturising and great for dry skin, it also has a lovely vanillary/creamy smell to it.

 King of Skin:
Many of you beauty bloggers/readers will be fully aware of this product thanks to the wonderful Tanya Burr. I love the residue that this product leaves on my skin. It makes it SO soft and it's just in general a lovely touch. If you couldn't tell from the other products I have purchased I have really dry skin so products like this really save my arse as they nourish my skin.

Yuzu & Cocoa:
I have mentioned this product before and I have to say it is my favourite product by lush ever! It smells like a pina colada in bubble bar form. It is simply amazing and lasts so long = great value for money.
Buy now:

Dream Time:
I have actually never used this product (but my mum has) and It's supposed to promote a good nights sleep, not that I need help with that, and it smells wonderful. It's a bath melt! 
Buy now:

 Charity Pot Moisturiser:
I only bought a £1tester of this moisturiser and it makes my skin sooooo soft it's shocking. And it's for a great cause, I would definitely recommend at least trying a tester of this moisturiser.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Coverage:
Lasting cover with varying cover for different skin types, a foundation that claims to stay on for 25 hours is something I had to try. The coverage lasts me all day, and I like the thicker cover as I have super pink cheeks naturally.

Baby Lips Hydrations:
I have dry skin... I have dry lips. So a lip balm that 'hydrates' your lips is perfect for me. I take this with me in my pocket to whip out when I'm on the go. I also apply it before and sometimes after lipstick as I find lipstick can dry my lips out.

Rimmel London Wonder'full Mascara with Argan Oil: 
I didn't like this mascara at first (I have to admit). I have tried so many drug store mascaras and never has a mascara made my eyelashes grow as long as they currently are. I would recommend this mascara to anyone who wants to give their eyelashes some TLC.
