I really enjoy using this Burt Bees creamy cleanser in the mornings and am a loooong term fan of Philip Kingsley Elasticizer when my hair is parched or brittle.
COLAB Dry Shampoo was the Bloggers’ Pick, which I had fun helping judge. A very deserved winner, it’s lightweight and non-sticky with no powdery finish - plus it’s cheap as chips aaand smells good. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ is a much loved anti blemish treatment that helps unclog pores and prevent scarring… I’m quite new to this one, but have heard nothing but rave reviews. Zoella’s new Fresh Fizz Fragranced Bath Fizzer has been given the seal of approval by my daughter - just break off a fruity scented chunk and pop it in the bath!
It’s been a while since I’ve tried a brown mascara and have enjoyed wearing Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara in Babylon Brown on my lower lashes for a softer look. Its paraben free formula with Moringa Oil is suitable for sensitive eyes. The Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon is one I’ve raved about multiple times and included in my favourites - a balm/lipstick hybrid with creamy, moisturising goodness that packs on pigment. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil is a great product for anyone that’s a bit timid of using a liquid body oil. It smells divine, is deeply nourishing and the little tin couldn’t be any easier to use… just swipe with your fingers and melt the product onto skin.
The only product I’m not a fan of from this lot is Dr Organics Snail Gel Facial Serum - let’s just say it’s not my bag. Great brand though, and I am a fan of their lovely new coconut range!
The total value of the LIB Beauty Awards 2015 Winners’ Box is £84+ and it’s available now for £21+p&p. I don’t think anyone can argue with that for a bargain! You can read more about each of the products or purchase the box while stocks last at latestinbeauty.com
