I can’t stop buying beauty products. It’s becoming a problem and I need serious help for it. There’s no way I’d spend £50 on an item of clothing but I have zero issues with spending that on Beauty Bay – and that’s exactly what I’ve done! I’ve shopped from Beauty Bay before and they have a great way to get you to spend more money! Great service (ordered it at 10pm on Friday and it arrived at 12pm on Saturday) and tonnes of brands to choose from.
Here’s a run down of everything I got:
St Tropez Self Tan Express Starter Kit: This is such a good buy! I got this last year when I first dipped my toes in the tanning pool. It was £8 (on special offer from £12 I think) and you get a mini of the Express Tan, a moisturiser, a scrub and a tanning mitt. The little bottle was great for me, I think I had about ten applications of this over the course of the summer for various outings and special occasions which I think is great for the price. I was expecting to only have a couple of gos at it but it’s just the gift that keeps on giving. The scrub is pretty good and does the job and same with the moisturiser. If you don’t go ham with your tan and just need something to get you through the summer I would definitely recommend this.
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops: Such a hyped brand and, in my mind, a bit of a pricy product for what it is. These little tanning drops are to mix with your moisturiser to tan up anything that needs a bit of glow and I got these to use on my face. I’ve just used this the once so I’ll report back when I’ve given it more of a test and it seemed to work okay. I only used two drops because I was terrified that it was going to turn my face bright orange and be streaky. It didn’t give my face much colour (probably because I didn’t use enough) but it was just giving me more of a glow.
The Ordinary Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil: I’ve used an Ordinary oil for the past three months and it’s been doing wonderful things for my skin. I fancied trying the rose one this time around because the reviews said it was good for redness and scarring – something I’m in need of. So affordable and hopefully it works for me.
The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA: I hadn’t planned on getting this moisturiser but my Body Shop Drops of Youth one was coming to an end and I thought I might as well pick one up whilst I was shopping. This was such good value for money – just over £6 for 100 ml, margin! I haven’t had chance to give it much of a road test but so far, so good. Thick and hydrating but not greasy, ticks all the boxes.
If I spent over £50 I got free next day delivery so I picked up the Jordana Contour Stick. I haven’t really heard of this brand before but I’ve wanted to try a contour stick for a while and I was only £4. We’ll see how it works! I also got the Yes to Cucumbers Super Eye Mask. Again, I haven’t tried it yet but if I end up loving it I’m sure I’ll mention it at some point.
