beauty haul: lush and benefit

Happy Friday guys! Are you glad its nearly the weekend? In Today's post I'm sharing with you guys a few new products I picked up and my initial thoughts on them.

First Impressions: 
I have been feeling though my skin has been looking a little dull and tired lately so I decided to pop into Lush to pick up a fresh face mask. After discussion with the lovely assistant I opted for the sacred truth face mask I have already used it once yesterday night and have to say I really like it. I feel that my skin looks brighter and feels really soft after using it.  I will do a full review on this once I have used it a few more times. 
The lady in the store also gave me a sample of the Lush Dream Cream to test out, I have heard many good things about this cream, and I have already used it last night and this morning and I know that I really like it. I'm going to be good and resist going and picking up a full size version until I have finished my current moisturiser. I also picked up this little charity pot as 100% of the proceeds go to charity.

First Impresssions: 
I was in the market for a new concealer and I have read many good reviews on this concealer. I have used it once and my first impressions are good, it is a nice creamy consistency and blends nicely. For anyone interested I bought the shade medium 03. Again I will do a full review once I've had more of a play with it. 

Last but not least I picked up an April issue of glamour magazine, I decided to share this with you guys because the magazine has a free gift with purchase this month. There is a choice of four Percy & Reed products, Moisturising ShampooMoisturising ConditionerFinishing Polish or TLC Mask. So definitely take advantage of this offer if your interested. 

Have you brought any new products recently?  If not what's currently on your wishlist?

  18. I love Lush products ..will have to try the Face Mask:-) I also love buying mags when they offer freebies!!

  19. What's Charity Pot like? I just bought a full-size Sympathy For The Skin and love it so much. It's light, ungreasy, and smells of vanilla ice-cream!

    1. First of all I bought the trial size version and tin is really hard to open! The consistency is of a lotion as oppose to a body butter, it sinks into the skin quite quickly. I think the smell of it is rather overpowering and I personally don't like it, it smells chocolately but there are also some other undertones which I can't place. I think it's great thought that 100% of the proceeds go to charity.

  20. nice picks! I like the lush fresh face mask! the benefit concealor looks so appealing, though have heard that it cakes :/
    thanks for your lovely comment hun :) following you now on gfc and bloglovin both xxx

  21. I always like hearing about concealers. I think Rimmel's wake me up concealer is one that I'm tempted to try soon!
