Escentual Shopping

With it being my Birthday today, turning the grand old age of 23, I thought I'd treat myself to some products that  I've wanted for a while. I also ticked the free gift wrap box and look how they arrived! It really did feel like opening early presents. Take note other companies: this is how I want to open all my online orders.

So onto what I ordered. First up is the Dior Crème De Rose lip balm which has been raved about by Elle and Ingrid. I love lip balms, I have way too many but I can't help to buy even more. I always tend to reach for a lip balm to wear everyday rather than a lipstick or gloss. I like the packaging but I still can't make up my mind whether the white plastic looks cheap or nice. It feels well made but white just gets dirty so easily. As for the lip balm, it reminds me of a thicker version of Korres Jasmine Lip Butter. It has a lovely rose scent and really helps to hydrate the lips. So far so good on this one!

Next up is the Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil. Kate raves about the Lotus version which is for combination and oil skin which is where I first heard about these oils. I went for Blue Orchid as it's designed for dehydrated skin which is what I have. I am yet to use this so cannot give any first impressions on it but I'm excited to do so. As well as face masks, I've really gotten into using oils on my skin at the moment.

The last two products I picked up are the hyped up Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors in Apricot and Petal Shimmer. Apricot is what the name describes, a lovely peachy apricot shade and Petal is a soft pink, both look very natural and feel amazing. They give you the gloss of a lip gloss without being sticky and the hydrating benefits of a lip balm. Definitely worth all the hype they get!

Escentual always seem to throw in a couple of samples and this time I got a perfume sample which I haven't smelt yet and a moisturiser by Dior. The moisturiser seems a cross between a moisturiser and a primer which looks like it would be great for under make-up.
