Beauty Haul & First Impressions

Some things just fall into your shopping cart and you have to buy them...

Recently I bought some beauty bits from Feel Unique and when they arrived on my doorstep, I knew I had to talk about what I bought and tell you whether I liked them or not. Spoiler alert, I like them all a lot so far!

Zoella Beauty Bath Latte
So I've dipped my toe into Zoella Beauty for the first time (literally dipped my toe in) - this product is a bath milk which first all of smells DELICIOUS. It smells like custard and if the whole range smells like this I might have to go in for seconds. The consistency of this is sort of like yoghurt which is a bit weird, but all you do is pour a little of this under running water and you'll be pleased to know it makes a really good amount of bubbles. It makes as much as part of a Lush bubble bar, so good to know it's on par with my fave bath and body brand. I'm not sure how long this is going to last, but I'll report back.

NUXE Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm
Ah, yes - the cult lip balm everyone loves. On first impression, this balm is so the one for me now. This smoothes and softens the lips, while almost plumping them too. It has quite a thick consistency and would be perfect for an overnight treatment, but this suits me so well as a day time lip balm. I have a feeling this will make putting on my favourite liquid lipsticks a lot easier. Have you tried this cult product? I'd be interested to know if you love it too.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in Budapest and London
I knew as soon as I saw Feel Unique stocked these I needed to try a couple more shades. The first one I bought was Cannes, a dark pink nude, but this time I went for a darker purple colour and more of a brown nude. The first is Budapest, which is a gorgeous berry purple which I thought would be kind of like a burgundy colour. I'd say it's a little more purple than I thought but I still love this shade and you'll be pleased to know this dark colour isn't patchy on the lips. The other shade is London which I'd describe as a warm toned, slightly orange brown nude. I think this is the perfect every day colour and the best part is if some of it comes off during the day with eating, etc you really don't notice too much as the nude shades fade nicely.

OGX Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Oil
My favourite conditioner comes from the OGX Argan Oil range so I wanted to try out the oil to tame my frizzy-prone hair. After a couple uses the verdict is that I really like this. All I do is apply a small amount of the oil to my hair after washing it and let it dry a little naturally before blow drying. I've found it makes my hair look shinier and less frizzy in conjunction with using the Argan Oil conditioner. If you're looking for a new hair care brand I would definitely recommend this one, and their products are pretty affordable too.

I also received a couple of samples to try (hopefully I'll actually remember to try them out at some point). Hope you enjoyed this post!
