Top 5 Beauty Buys – May

Well it’s a little overdue but, as they say, better late than never!

My top 5 beauty buys for this month are as follows (in no particular order).

1. Covergirl – Flamed Out Mascara – $14.95

Beauty Buys May-1

Yes yes yes! I just love this mascara. I used to be one of those only-stick-to-what-you-know mascara kind of girls BUT my world has changed! For the better! This is a fantastic mascara which makes your lashes look like fakies (in a good way) especially if you have stubs for lashes like mine. PLUS the benefit is that it doesn’t take 50, RSI inducing, swipes of your wrist to get the stuff on. It goes on super easily and makes you look a million bucks.

2. Toni & Guy – Glamour, Volume Plumping Whip – $15.99

Beauty Buys May-6

As mentioned in previous posts, I’m a bit of a slacker with my hair, I find it almost a chore to look after. I have been told a thousand times by my hairdressers, my mum and friends that I need to protect my hair when heat styling. This product not only protects you hair, but provides amazing volume through those locks of yours. It smells delicious and doesn’t make your hair stick together in segments. Love it.

3. not.a.sponge – Volcanic Power Puff – $11.00

This is a sponge made from vegetables. Yes you read correctly! If you’re after an all natural facial scrub/exfoliator, this is the sponge to turn to. The below text is printed on their packaging:

not.a.sponge is made from the super food ‘KONJAC’ vegetable and a selction of results driven organic compounds that your skin will LOVE! It may look like your average sponge, but we would never want to put this 100% pure, natural, handcrafted puff of love in such a category. A fast and natural cleansing partner that will wash away impurities, returning your skin to a deeper state of euphoria.

Although this product does not remove makeup, it stimulates blood flow, promotes oxgenenation and skin cell rejuvenation as well as balances the skins natural pH levels. It’s now a very important part of my skin regime.

4. Hydraulon – Facial Moisture Booster Serum – $34.95

Beauty Buys May-8 Beauty Buys May-3

I have a phobia. It’s a fear of being dry. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I moisturise like a slave, morning and night, breakfast and dinner, dawn and dusk. Always moisturising. So you can imagine how in love I am with these tube of goodness. This special little serum locks in your skins moisture. You apply the serum before your regular moisturising cream. I’m just loving this product especially with the dryer months coming up.

Increases skin hydration from below the surface with an ultra-high-quality hyaluronic acid that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

…and if you didn’t understand that then just know it’s très très hydrating!

5. Babe – Pink Salt Body Scrub – $21.95

Beauty Buys May-7 Beauty Buys May-9

But babe, seriously.

I must say, I’m a bit of regular scrubber and this baby rubs me in all the right places. This pink salt scrub has a touch of almond oil and essential oils that create an amazing showering experience. Plus, unlike others, this scrub isn’t so harsh that it makes your skin bleed! I love the whole Babe Scrub range which includes, Pink Salt, Green Tea and Coffee scrubs. Stay tuned for an exciting collaboration with this amazing brand.
