Eid Mubarak! and an Escentual Haul =)

A belated Eid Mubarak to all my readers! It's been a busy few days with lots of henna, baking, food and visiting relatives! Anyway, here's what I treated myself to from Escentual.com (a sort of Eid present to myself) =)

What was originally meant to be a repurchase of my Bare Minerals foundation, turned into a miniature haul from Escentual (oops!). Alongside my foundation, I also ordered the Bioderma Skincare Sample Set, which consisted of 27 sample sizes of Bioderma products. Luckily, it was on offer at £16, and I got a voucher emailed to me with a value of £20 after I had ordered. Win!

And here's what arrived in the Bioderma Sample Set. I know that I'll be taking quite a few of these miniatures on holiday with me, especially the Micelle Solution's and the Atoderm range of products.

A full list of the samples included in the set:

  • H2O Micelle Solution 10ml
  • Global - Intensive Purifying Care 5ml
  • Hydra - Moisturising Replenishing Care 5ml
  • AKN Fluiid - Purifying Corrective Care 5ml
  • Pore Refiner - Corrective Care 5ml
  • Purifying and Foaming Cleansing Gel 10ml
  • AR Anti Redness Cream 5ml
  • AR BB Cream - Anti-Redness Skin-Perfecting Care 5ml
  • Rich - Soothing Cream 5ml
  • Light - Soothing Cream 2ml
  • Forte Cream - Reddened Sensitive Cream 5ml
  • H2O - Micelle Solution 10ml
  • Eye Contour Gel 2ml
  • DS+ Soothing Purifiying Cream 5ml
  • PO Zinc Crème - Ultra-Soothing Cream 8ml
  • Creme Lavante - Nutri-protective Cleansing Cream 10ml
  • PP Baume - Ultra Nourishing Emollient Balm 8ml
  • Nourishing Cream 8ml
  • Atoderm PP Ultra Rich Foaming Gel 10ml
  • AKN Mat - Mattifying Fluid SPF30 5ml
  • Spot Cream SPF50+ 5ml
  • AR Tinted Cream SPF50+ 5ml
  • MAX Cream SPF50+ 5ml
  • Light - Moisturising Cream 2ml
  • Rich - Moisturising Cream 5ml 
  • Serum - Moisturising Concentrate 5ml
  • Smoothing Repairing Cream 5ml

With the £20 voucher, I then placed another Escentual order for my saviour from eczema (Bioderma PO Zinc Crème) and thought I'd try out the Bioderma Sensibio DS + Soothing Purifying Cream for my eczema as it has a lightweight texture which will be much appreciated for the rest of the summer. With my purchase of the Sensibio Purifying Cream, I also got a Sensibio Micelle Solution (100ml) for free. Another win! All in all, I think my haul from Escentual will last me a good few months and I'm looking forward to trying the different Bioderma products over the holidays =)


You Beauty Discovery Box - July

1 comment
This month's YBD box features a shortlist of products which are travel friendly. Seeing as Summer has finally arrived in the UK, and many people will be off for a little break abroad (including me!), this box couldn't have come at a better time.

For my box, I chose the L'Oreal Miss Manga Mega Volume mascara and the Abahna White Grapefruit and May Chang Bath Gel (35ml). This month's extra's included Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream (3ml), Agent Provocateur Fatale EDP (2ml) and Dove Men Care Shave Cream (50ml).

I'm looking forward to trying the mascara as I have read quite a few positive reviews on it. Even though I don't wear mascara very often, I'll be wearing contact lenses on holiday (rather than glasses) so I'll be able to apply more than my usual light coat when out and about. I chose the Abahna bath gel randomly after finding that the product I originally wanted was out of stock. I probably won't be taking it on holiday with me but I'll definitely be trying it at home. It's free from SLS, SLES, Parabens and artificial colour and is fragranced with 100% essential oils, so hopefully it won't irritate my skin and will leave a lasting scent =)

Overall I'm not wowed by this month's box, but at £6.95, it's not that bad =)

What did you get in this month's YBD box?
