Beauty Wish List

Cash has been a bit tight of late, but I’ve got a lovely cheque coming through next month so I’m planning on go on a slight spending binge.

Beauty Wish List

 I keep seeing this pop up on Wowcher and the reviews look great. I’m not sure if I’ll get this exact one but I definitely want something similar for my stubby lashes.

As a lip balm fiend I need this in my life. I’ve read a lot of reviews on this and have got to get my mitts on one.

I love bareMinerals, it’s the only foundation I trust for full coverage that doesn’t break me out. This veil is supposed to set the foundation and give an airbrushed finish. Yes please!

I’ve put the US price of this because they’re much cheaper there and I’m asking for one in my US swap (I’ll be posting about this soon!). They look great and Grape looks like it’ll give a subtle flush of colour.

 I’m really annoyed at myself for buying this because I love it. If you’re looking for something to reduce the look of stretch marks then I can’t recommend this more. I hauled it here and I’ll do a full review soon.

 I got a 1ml sample of this in the Harrods Glossybox and loved it. It smells amazing! A tad on the pricey side, but I’ve got to have it.

 I warned you I was a balm addict. Seven months ago I wouldn’t have dreamt of spending so much on a lip balm but hey, addictions only get worse right?

 My skin is addicted to this. It absorbs really quickly and makes my face feel amazing.

 I got a sample of this in Liberty a few weeks ago and it reminds me a lot of the Monu Radiant Peel I reviewed here. Going to get it from ASOS so I can take advantage of my student discount – unless they will be any REN offer floating around.

I did a project on this at uni and Harpers Bazaar press office sent us a bottle and it smelt so good. I can’t wait for this baby to join my fragrance collection!

 I reviewed a set of Di Palomo hand creams here and the orange blossom is now my favourite. If the perfume is anything like the hand cream then I know it’ll smell delicious.

I don’t even want to work out how much all of this is going to cost, but it has to be done!

What’s on your Lust List?

Review: Di Palomo Hand and Nail Cream

As a dry skin sufferer I always have to compromise when it comes to scented products. Do I go for something that smells great but has to be reapplied constantly, or a fragrance free product that lasts all day? Longevity is a big issue for me so I always opt for longer lasting, fragrance free products. Or at least I did until I tried Di Palomo’s hand and nail creams.

I’d never actually heard of the brand until they were recently featured in a beauty box, but I’m now a loyal fan. Their hand creams are quite honestly amazing. They smell out of this world and are really moisturising. They don’t leave behind a greasy residue and keep your hands lovely and soft!

Orange Blossom with wild Honey & OliveYou can quite literally smell this through the packaging. It’s light but quite sweet; you can definitely smell the wild honey.

Wild Fig & GrapeThis is my favourite out of the three creams. The smell is quite heavy – perhaps too heavy for some – and lasts all day, even after you’ve washed your hands.

White Grape with AloeThis smells really fresh, which I guess would be the aloe. It reminds me of something but I can’t put my finger on it. Perfect summer scent though.

The full sized 75ml hand creams retail at £7 each on the Di Palomo website, but I’ve found them available on Feel Unique for £6.30 delivered.

You can currently buy the Hand and Nail Cream Tester Pack for £5 on the Di Palomo website with free next day delivery and a £5 discount voucher.

What do you think of Di Palomo? Have you tried any of their products?
I've got my eye on some candles and body oils!
This isn't a sponsored post, I just genuinely love these creams!
