I've been itching to get my hands on this ever since Maddie from Qworter Life Crisis compared it to the Chanel Les Beiges Powders. It comes in an an extremely travel-friendly little compact, and so far I'm really liking it. It's very finely milled, so it looks pretty flawless and not at all cakey on the skin, and the shade really works with my skin tone. My only complaint would be that it is quite 'powdery', so a bit tends to go flying when you swirl your brush in it, but hey, that's nothing major. 

When I left Spain, I left my mascara behind because I despised it (honestly, it was rubbish!) so when I got the chance to pop into Boots, I decided to try out the new release from Bourjois. The likes of Kate and Jess have raved about this, so I decided to give it a go, and so far I am really liking it. I haven't had it for long, so I can't say too much, but it reminds me a bit of one of my favourite mascaras, the 'They're Real' Mascara from Benefit. 


I've spoke about this rascal of a mask before here, so I won't go on too much, but it really helps to calm down my skin when those pesky hormonal spots come 'a knocking. In the post, I compared it to the Origins Clear Improvement Mask, and although I do like that when my skin is being a right nuisance, I've decided that if I somehow managed to lose both, I'd repurchase the Botanics one first without a doubt - it just suits my dry, sensitive skin that much better. 

P.S. I'm flying to Moscow today, so if I don't reply to comments quickly, that's why! I will be able to see them though so make sure to comment away :)

  4. I LOVE the bourjous mascara but haven't tried the powder, the healthy mix/balance stuff looks really great. I could do with that mask my spots are a menace at the moment xxx

  9. The powder doesn't have too much coverage so it might not be great for covering blemishes, but it does set everything nicely x
