Long time no blog, things are a little hectic in my world at the moment for reasons I hope to share with you soon as I talked about yesterday. Blogging has taken a back seat (again) so I thought I would ease myself back in with a little haul that arrived last week. Last month they had up to 30% off French skincare which to be honest is awesome, I tweeted about it lots so I hope you made the most of it. They always have offers on so many different brands and they are my go to skin care site. Plus the head office is local to me and I always have the most super speedy delivery!
Anyway, on to what I picked up. The first thing I put straight into my basket is the infamous Bioderma. Since taking part in Escentual's Micellar Blind Trial I have been wanting to pick it up. I did have samples of Bioderma and liked them so thought I would finally buy it. The little bottle is of course for my holiday later on this year, can you tell I'm excited? My skin does look and feel better when I am taking my makeup off properly and with all the products I have it's no excuse at all. I guess everybody saw Lisa Eldridge's video about her in flight routine and now I'm all about products under 100ml ha.
Next up is something that I have wanted to try for a while and that is the Caudile Grape Water. I use and love the Caudile Beauty Elixr but it's so pricey and I'm not even sure what it does apart from freshen me up, apparently this does the same job for a % of the cost so I picked up the 200ml bottle and will see.
Another face spray that I picked up is the Avene Thermale Spring Water Spray. Glorified water in a spray can or will this be a holy grail skin care item, who knows? But I am willing to give it a shot. I picked up the smallest can again with the thought of holiday but also Leanne's wedding in a couple of weeks (eek!). With any luck the weather will be awesome so I will have this on hand to cool us all down. Might also be a goody for holiday as it says it's good for sunburn. Even though I put sunscreen everywhere there is always that one patch that burns.
Last but not least the La Roche Posay Efficlar Duo which was recommended to me by Emma who works at Escentual because we seem to have the same skin type. Emma uses this as a primer and I've been loving it. My makeup goes on easier, lasts longer and my pores don't soak up all my foundation as usual. I'ts a bargain anyway but in the offer it only cost me £9.

Have you used any of the products I've bought? What are your thoughts?




  1. I love Efficlar Duo I use it every day under makeup too, it works especially well with lighter foundations like Healthy Mix and Healthy Mix serum I found. Great haul :)


  2. Really interested in trying the Caudalie Grape Water, I'm still a slave to their classic Beauty Elixir but you can never have too much skincare! Hope you're well Charli? x

  3. Love thermal waters, they're so lovely to have in the warm weather <3
