Collective Haul – Mallorca.

 

Here comes another part of much-awaited haul series and if you haven’t checked out my previous episode of haul, then click here: Beauty Haul – Mallorca where I’ve covered most of the beauty items that I’ve bought from Sephora whereas this post includes products from makeup to skin care and from nail care to perfume and last-but-not-least, some fashion items too and, on the other side, it have made a small dent in my purse but never mind as some of the items are investment beauty staples and so, I could say it as beauty justified. Hence, let’s get, set, ready for the preview of collective haul.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Kiss Perfume:

You know I’m a great fan of perfumes and most of all, I’m totally obsessed with Marc Jacob Perfumes and the other perfume that I’ve tried from their range was Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I loved it a lot and in which it gave me a huge inspiration to buy this perfume.

Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner:

Here, I have a confession to make that I’m seriously addicted to airport duty-free shopping and I’m guessing that I’m not the only with this same mindset (Haha!). Now, let’s get into the product and to be honest, I’ve been eyeing on this product for a while as it has been hyped among the blogging community a lot. I’ve tried it today and viola! What an amazing invention as it gives a splendid gel eyeliner look with one single stroke and every penny is well justified.

Clarins Hand And Nail Treatment Cream:

17apr171

This was a bargain purchase as it was priced at €12.99 and I know it is one of their besting products from Clarins and so, I can’t be wrong with it as the brand name itself narrates everything. Well, what a coincidence as I was totally running out of hand cream and there comes another excuse to buy this product.

OPI Nail & Fly:

 

Another great find from airport duty-free shopping is OPI Nail & Fly, which is a collective gift set that includes OPI Bubble Bath, Rapid Dry Top Coat and Avoplex Replenishing Nail & Cuticle Oil.

Bracelets:

17apr173

I love to do street shopping from local vendors and these are some of the amazing bracelets which is ideal to give it as a gift.

Scarves:

17apr174

I love scarves and these outstanding laced scarves is a must have for this season as it brings in a new dimension for your weekend getaway.

Here comes yet another month of beauty empties and before, having completed so many beauty products in April, this month, I’ve managed to empty a few of them and I’m so glad that I’ve used up until its last drop lasts. Meanwhile, moving along to its category, it varies from perfume to skincare and from body care to nail care. Well, having said that I liked the contents of these products yet I’m also happy with the brands that I’ve been sticking onto as well. Hence, time has finally come in to share some of the amazing experiences that I’ve been carrying along last month and so, let’s get started.

Hollister California – Solana Beach – Body Mist:

Hollister California solana beach body mist

First of all, this is the debutant that I’m trying from Hollister California and I’m totally loving it a lot. In further, as we are residing in warmer months, a lighter perfume is always an absolute beauty staple and swapping a good quality body mist instead of a heavier perfume is always the best alternative and this incredible body mist is not in exception either.

Highlights:

  • Light-weight body mist
  • Fruity scent
  • High mileage
  • Long lasting lingering effect

Carter Baiser Vole Lys Rose:

Now, let’s move on from fruity to floral scent. Well, Spring means flowers and lilies are one of the most favourite spring flowers that I know and the gorgeous essence extract from pink lilies is one of the best aroma that one could look for this Spring. Besides, with the humongous accent of raspberry fruity notes, one could feel like the blooming Spring garden is finally at their doorstep. So, if you are looking for a lighter perfume, then I would highly recommend this perfume that is quintessential to use for this season.

Spring Mini Beauty Haul.

18apr

As sun was shining brightly, I hit the store last week and I made a sensible buy and not spending too much. Besides, just like you, I also love to read beauty haul and I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers doing it. Hence, here comes my beauty haul and before heading onto the actual drop down list, let me tell you a brief intro about the products that I purchased and most of the items are from high street based brands that are high in quality and also available at an affordable price too and the range includes skincare, makeup and bath products. Having said all that, now it is the right time to hit onto the actual haul and hence, let’s get started and stay tuned girls!

The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream:

First of all, let me start with the body shop product. Basically, I love skincare products from TBS and especially, hand creams as they are displayed gorgeously on multiple baskets next to pay point in the store and hence, there is no way to miss it at all. So, how can I compare TBS hand cream with general other hand creams? The answer is simple as it comes as light weighted, creamy in consistency, scented mildly, sinks right into the skin without leaving a grease and finally, very affordable to buy.

Marks&Spencer Shower Gel With Added Moisturiser:

I love this shower collection from M&S and it looks like luxe in a tube and it works exemplarily well as it does triple action effects namely, cleanse, moisturise and also, leaving an amazing aroma to your skin. Besides, it is accompanied with some vital features such as added moisturiser, free from fragrance and extract from the nature. Anyways, what else could you ask for from a bath product, isn’t it? Well, this shower gel collection comes in three flavours:

  • Peach & Almond
  • Coconut
  • Lemon Verbena

Of all the flavours, I really love the lemon verbena range as it reminds me of the Loccitane verbena shower gel. Score! Moreover, one can’t go wrong with these travel friendly shower gel collection.

Soap&Glory Solar Powder:

With so many bloggers raving about this drugstore bronzing staple, I thought of give it a go and oh my! The bronzing and illuminator brick combo is totally divine and it fulfils the greatest glow on earth which I all wanted for warm sunny days for this Spring/Summer.

LUSH Lip Scrub:

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

I have mentioned about the real goodness of this product in my previous post, My 3-Step Lip Care Routine and click here to catch up with all the updates. Apparently, this lip scrub has been created with great inspiration from the bubblegum flavour and its aroma smells exactly like a sweet candy floss. Besides, the inbuilt components of caster sugar and jojoba oil works exemplarily well as an exfoliator and moisturiser.

Have you ever used any of these products before and if so, share your personal experiences with me and as always, I would love to read them. Have a great start of the week.
