Chanel glossimer in 108 Constellation £22 available from here
I bought this whilst on the cruise. I’d never tried a Chanel lipgloss before, only the rouge coco shine lipsticks and balm. It’s a beige, gold colour with pink undertones and is ultra glossy. It looks gorgeous on and is very long lasting. I only found it a little ‘sticky’ when my lips were very chapped. I will definitely be purchasing another one, of the Chanel Glossimers, I just need to decide on which shade to buy next!
Garnier Micellar Cleansing water – Available from here
For a long time I used L’Oreal 3 in 1 Micellar water to remove my make up, when I saw this on offer in Tesco, I thought i’d try it and I have to say I prefer this Micellar cleansing water by a mile! I use this to take all of my make up off, including waterproof mascara, before a second cleanse. I absolutely love it, it doesn’t dry my skin out. It’s hypoallergenic and for sensitive skin, so I will definitely be repurchasing this when this bottle runs out. A little goes a long, long way too. 
Vichy eye contour idealia eye cream* – here
This is a creamy illuminator for under the eyes, that claims to target signs of fatigue, dehydration and ageing. I didn’t expect to see instant results after applying, but the pale pink cream did smooth out my under eyes and they did look noticeably brighter. I LOVE the soft applicator too… I’ll be interested to see the results after a few weeks of using this. I’m always on the hunt for new eye creams / products.
Palmers Cocoa butter lip balm £2.00 can be found here
I have almost used up all of my Chanel balm, due to my lips being horrendously chapped now winter has arrived. I picked this one up, as I saw it was only two pounds. I have to say this is one of the best lip balms I’ve ever used. My lips feel so soft, silky and look healthy. Instead of dull, chapped and sore!

Intimately Beckham perfume for her 75ml can be found here

I always buy ‘cheap’ perfumes to throw in my handbag. I like spritzing away during the day without feeling guilty about ‘wasting’ it. I have my ‘good’ perfumes on my dressing table at home, which I use a little more sparingly. Silly really, but that’s how I am. So I spotted this in home bargains for just £8.00 and it’s lovely.  It’s a fresh scent, with notes of rose petals and orange blossom, with a base of vanilla, sandalwood and musk. Basically it smells gorgeous and 75ml for £8.00 I couldn’t resist.

    Ohh the Chanel lipgloss does look really pretty! Very similar to an Illamasqua one I have (Culminate) but slightly lighter I think! I'd love to try the Vichy eyecream too, the Idealia range smells amazing!

    I too use Victoria Beckham perfume – it's perfect for the day for a spritz at any time. My daughter has recently switched to the Micellar too – she was buying a ridiculously expensive 3 in 1 water from France prior to that. Love the blog (and your gorgeous dog xx).

    I've got quite a few Chanel Lipglosses but find that my hair gets very easily stuck to my lips in windy conditions haha, so I have to make sure its just an evening out type of thing before I wear them!

    I am still so obsessed with the Garnier Micellar water after powering through three bottles of it so far! It's such a great, affordable product.

    I've been using both the Garnier Micellar water and the Palmer's lip balm for over a year now and I love them both, the micellar water is revolutionary! And the lip balm just feels so good when applied (and smells great of course!)
