December Beauty Wishlist

The first item on my December Beauty Wishlist is the LancĂ´me La Vie Est Belle fragrance. I have a sample of this and it smells divine! I so want to get my hands on the full size version of sampling it!

I also have included some MAC Lip Liners in the shades Soar, Dervish and Whirl. These Lip Liners in the mentioned shades will complement the MAC Lipstick shades I already own and that are on my wishlist.

Speaking of MAC Lipsticks which are on my wishlist, I have added another two which are Honeylove and Twig. These are both nude and neutral shades which are perfect for me because anything colourful doesn't suit my lip shape.

I am really keen to get my hands on the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, I have heard really good things about this product, particularly that it gives elasticity and really helps to nurture your hair especially if you have had colour.

I bought a cheap pair of eyelash curlers from Superdrug a few years ago; however I'm beginning to notice that they have now seen better days, in an ideal world I would love to own the SHU UEMURA Eyelash curlers because I feel that the quality would really give my lashes the curl I long for.

Lately I have noticed when using hair bands that they get knotted in my hair and it really hurts when trying to take my hair down. I really don't like the thought of what damage that is doing to my hair, so the Invisibobble Hair Band in Crystal Clear is the solution and is another item on my wishlist in December!

Recently I wrote a post about my Christmas Haul from Lush which you can read here if you've missed it! Shortly after I wrote the post I received a tweet from Lush suggesting that I use their Snow Fairy Body Conditioner with either the Father Christmas bath bomb or the Magic Wand Bubble Bar as these match together so I have added this to my list now!

That's it for my wishlist this month, let me know below what products you have your eye on?

Lush Christmas Haul 2016

 I recently purchased some goodies from the Lush Christmas range! I wanted to share with you what I picked up and my initial thoughts of them.
  Firstly I picked up the Father Christmas bath bomb (£3.75). This product is shaped like a Father Christmas head and is super festive! I actually bought this bath bomb last year and used it on Christmas Eve to really get me in the mood for Christmas. It's really sweet smelling, and when placed in the bath turns the water a red and green colour.  

The next item I bought was an item I don't recall seeing in previous years Lush Christmas range. It's the Christmas Penguin bubble bar (£3.95) which is so adorable it'll be a shame to use it! I love the Lush bubble bars as I think they're such good value for money and I always manage to get lots of bubble baths out of them! This bubble bar sounds as if it's an uplifting product to use in the bath because it contains Sicilian lemon and mandarin oils and sweet bergamot which will be refreshing to use.

I also picked up another bubble bar, Santasaurus (£5.95). This bubble bar is basically a dragon wearing a Santa’s hat on a stick, how cute! I admit a lot of the products I bought were because they looked cute but how can you resist? This bubble bar contains Brazilian orange and bergamot oil so this sounds like it is a fresh scent to use.

Peeping Santa (£3.95)
is also a bubble bar I couldn't resist. This makes for a very indulgent bubble bath on those cold winter nights and contains lots of lovely ingredients such as Shea butter, cocoa butter, bergamot and geranium oils.
The next bath bomb in my haul is Star Dust (2.95). The bath bomb looks incredible as when it is placed in water there is an explosion of different coloured glitter stars in your bath. The ingredients contain vanilla and bergamot oil so this should be a relaxing addition to a nice long hot soak!

The last bath bomb I chose was Butterbear (£1.95). This is another luxurious product, as it contains cocoa butter and ylang ylang which not only makes for a relaxing bath, it will also be good for my skin!

Last but not least is the final bubble bar in my haul which is Magic Wand (£5.95). If you like the shower gel Snow Fairy that Lush also sell, you'll love this bubble bar. The scent is a sweet smell, and turns the colour of the bath water pink.

Let me know what you think of the Lush Christmas range and if you have tried anything?
