I loved using the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It's so refreshing and calming on my skin, especially on a hot day. I used it more as a toner rather than to set my makeup. A lot of people don't like the scent but I like it! It's quite herbal and pretty strong but I'm used to that sort of smell and I think it's lovely. I'm looking forward to trying more of their products.
Would I repurchase? Definitely! I think the 30ml is good for my handbag and the 100ml for home.

I use fake tan every single week. I wouldnt be without it! I used to use fake tans in the mousse form but I found they dried my skin out too much. Then I found Garnier Summerbody! This is perfect for me because it moisturises as well as giving me a natural bronze glow. It smells of apricot to begin with and then after a couple hours the fake tan smell comes through but that doesn't bother me. It's no where near as strong smelling as other fake tans I've used!
Would I repurchase? Definitely! Love this stuff!

I love this moisturiser. It felt so nice on my skin , kept it moisturised, smooth and smells lovely. As i'd finished it, I decided to try another. I bought La Roche Posay Hydreane Riche which is for dehydrated, sensitive skin. I like it so far but I'm not sure if I'd repurchase it. It's quite thick in consistency so maybe I should have gone for the lighter version... It doesn't feel as nice as my Hydra Floral. 
Would I repurchase? I would... (if I can't find another I love as much).

Ah! I hate it when I run out of foundation. Especially if it's this one! It ran out just at the right time (payday Friday). 
See my post on the Laura Mercier foundation
Would I repurchase? Of course..!

I got this when I was in Boots for some kind of offer. The packaging was so cute I couldn't resist! It smells exactly like the Vanilla cupcake Yankee candle which is why I got it! My boyfriend hates the smell and to be honest I don't really want to smell like a vanilla biscuit!
Would I repurchase? Yes! But definitely going to try the Strawberry Sundae next time...

I love this mascara soooo much! It really does wonders with my lashes. Wouldn't use anything else.
Would I repurchase? 100% yes!

Have you tried any of these products before?

    1. I def recommend you try the foundation. It's amazing. I think with the caudalie beauty elixir, it's one of those love/hate thing. I personally love it and love the smell! I hate when you hear such good things about a product and then when you try it you get disappointed. X
