What's in my Travel Makeup Bag

I've been travelling around a lot lately so I thought I'd do a little "What's in my Travel Makeup Bag" post.

The Bag

Let's start with the make up bag shall we? Isn't it gorgeous? This was a Christmas present from Lora and I believe it's from Oliver Bonas. I don't think they stock these anymore but they do have some similar (ish) ones.


Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation - £10.99

I've recently rediscovered the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. It provides such a beautiful finish and the colour is a perfect match for me. I love this during the day but it's also gorgeous for summer evenings with a soft smoky eye or a bright lip.

Review: Sanctuary Face Masks

I picked up these Sanctuary Spa face masks in Boots the other day on a 3 for 2 offer so I thought the only sensible thing to do would be to get one of each and share my thoughts.

Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask £2.50

This is my favourite of the three. After spending a couple of days working in London my skin was looking a dull and clogged. This is a charcoal thermal mask so it self heats on application. I expected the texture to be more like a clay mask. This has a gel like texture that doesn't have the same drying, cracking effect. The warming sensation is a bit odd to begin with. Not unpleasant at all, just a little strange. I left this on for a little longer than the recommended 5 minutes (I like to fill my face mask time with YouTube Beauty videos so I lost track). I rinsed my face and then used a face wash to remove any excess. Having quite sensitive skin my main concerns were that this would cause some irritation or break me out. 

Well ladies and gentlemen it did not. I was left with smooth, fresh, clean, glowing skin. This didn't dry my skin at all and frankly I can't remember the last time my skin looked this good. Such an amazing mask, I will definitely be purchasing the full size version come pay day. 

New Nails! Essie Fiji and Urban Jungle

I accidentally bought more Essie nail polishes. I think I need to enforce a ban because it's becoming a bit of a problem. The reason I bought them, and somehow managed to justify the purchase (knowing full well that I absolutely do not need any more nail polish) was that they seemed different. And they are.
