Here are four products that have been making me very happy recently:
Clinitas Soothe Dry Eye Relief Drops
Zoe Foster was the reason I started looking for individual-use eyedrops. She made a very good point that you never tend to use up the regular droppers before the one-month-after-opening use by date so they always end up being a bit of a waste. (I know not everyone pays too much attention to use by dates but for something that’s going in my eyes I’m happy to take the manufacturers recommendation).
I love these ones because they are gentle and make my eyes feel lovely and fresh. I found them in Boots but can’t find them on the website, try Chemist Direct in the link above instead.
Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser
I got a couple of samples of this and after around two weeks of using it I am really impressed. I’ve been whipping my skincare into shape recently so it could be a combination of a few things, but using this in the mornings leaves my skin smooth and glowing. My make-up also goes on nicely and I’m using less as a result. The smell is a bit odd – kind of herby and yeasty – but I like it! Also, it says it is wash-off and that you don’t need to use a muslin cloth to remove it but I have been – for me my skin just feels cleaner that way.
I’ve only tried the original cleanser once (another sample) and, while I liked it, it didn’t wow me enough to buy it. I’m using Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish in the evenings at the moment, which I’ve used on and off for years, and combined with the Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser I’m feeling happier with my skin than I have for a while.
Nails Inc Elizabeth Street
Wearing three coats of this (so that it is completely opaque) on my fingers and toes has been pleasing me a great deal recently. It’s a pretty pale pink that I like to think makes my nails look like little shells. (Oh shut up, it makes me happy ok?) I think Nails Inc use it as part of a French manicure but I like it best on it’s own and as a solid colour.
Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash
I got this as part of a little travel set that I think included the body oil and moisturiser too. This cleanser has come with me on a few weekend trips away recently and I love it. The smell is so good. So good. I love rose fragrances anyway but this one is especially delicious and it’s nice to have a little bit of luxury when you’re away from home.
