Ok so it's that time of week again for my beauty round up! Here are the products I have been loving this week...
This stuff is literally amazing! This is a simple to use and incredibly moisturising self tanner for the face by Clarins. It's great for maintaing a tan or just to get a healthy glow. I put it on before bed and in the morning I have naturally bronzed looking and soft skin. You don't have to be meticulous at all when applying this and I have never had streaks or an uneven appearance. Love love love it!
Next is the beautiful new fragrance from Jo Malone called Blackberry & Bay. As some of you guys will know I'm an avid Jo Malone fan and this fragrance is the perfect new addition to their wonderful fragrance line! It's a gorgeous and warm scent but is not too over powering or heady, a perfect one for both day and night. It's a rich scent but has a floral and fresh edge which I just love. Jo Malone has said the scent is inspired by childhood memories of blackberry picking which I just think is such a cute idea. Look out for it on counters soon!
This has been a firm favourite for a very long time but recently I find myself reaching for it more and more. It is the most heavenly of body creams... richly moisturising with the most amazingly fresh and zingy ginger scent which stays lingering on the skin all day. A 200ml tub will last me ages as well as a little product spreads a long way with this. If you are ever passing an Origins counter go and give it a smell - it's addictive!
Clinque's high impact extreme volume mascara is their latest one and another attribute to their established and diverse mascara range. This a completely fuss free and fast mascara, taking only seconds to achieve a voluminous and full lash look. I wouldn't necessarily it adds 'extreme' volume (something I am automatically drawn to!) but I like the fluttery finish for an everyday mascara.
Finally for this week is Rimmel's Stay Matte powder. I have been loving so much Rimmel recently and this powder I think is absolutely brilliant for a drug store brand. It instantly takes away unwanted shine but doesn't sit on the skin like others in a similar market do. It lasts as well which is something I think is important for a powder to deliver on. Definitely worth purchasing for any of you looking to try a new powder and definitely one of my all time favourite drug store products!
Have a great bank holiday weekend guys whatever you are up to!
I love your bog and videos Tanya! Always helpful and informative. I haven't brought one product which you have recommended that I am disappointed with, all amazing products! Keep up the good work xx

Loving this Stay Matte too! Awesome product and also really affordable. Not to sure about the Clinique Mascara. I have it found it doesn't really work for me.

The Stay Matte Pressed Powder was the first I bought when I was younger. I didn't really use powder until I was 15. I really love the Rimmel one! I think its pretty hard to over do with this powder ,however somehow my old self found a way - oh dear. Lovely post (:

I Love the Origins Ginger Souffle and I agree the smell is addictive! I saw it on one of your youtube videos and I bought it for myself and both of my sisters and we all love it!
