This year’s Valentine’s Day is extra special, not just because I’m Catholic and it’s Ash Wednesday, but I got an unexpected Beauty Haul! As Christ gives us the gift of new life through repentance and penance, and admirer got me the classic Valentine’s Day package for most women; Chocolate, a fragrance, you know the works. Today is a combined celebration of true love!
I’m shocked and particularly excited about the facial routine (Someone has been reading my beauty blog) and I can’t wait to tell you about them all.
Fragrance: Coco Mademoiselle EDP
This fragrance is said to be a floral citrus fragrance for women. Professional reviews say it’s got a whole load of “notes” including orange, bergamot, mimosa, jasmine, Turkish rose and ylang-ylang, Tonka bean, patchouli, opoponax, vanilla, vetiver and white musk. I’ll be honest and tell you that I don’t know the difference, but I think I was able to detect the orange in all this.
So to simplify my first impression, this fragrance smells really sweet and something about it makes it even delicious. I haven’t worn it so I can’t decide how I feel about it nor can I compare it to any other Chanel parfum I have used. I also can’t say anything with respect to longevity. However, this product has been available since 2001 and has a tonne of positive reviews so…fingers crossed?
Facial Routine: Murad Joyful and Radiant Gift Set
I think I shed a tear on this one. If you read my previous post October Beauty Haul- Montaigne Place, you’ll see that I tried Murad for the first time using their Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum to clear my acne spots, and I was fairly impressed.
A 3-Step program to cleanse,treat, hydrate and protect, this box contains;
1. Essential-C Cleanser – “…cleanser from the scientific skin care experts at Murad designed to fight against the daily impact of pollutants and environmental damage”. Okay, there’s a lot of dust right now. That qualifies as pollution yeah?
2. Advanced Active Radiance Serum – “…infuses Vitamin-C and antioxidants for younger, healthy skin.” I might have to cut back on my daily consumption of oranges but let’s see…
3. Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – “…for people looking to protect their skin from sun damage, and preserve moisture.” With this Hamattan, this is definitely for me!
I apologise. I ate the chocolate before I realised I’d need a picture. But I hope sharing the others in detail have made up this.
I’ll be trying out these products in the coming weeks and hopefully do a review on all of them. In the meantime, Happy Valentine’s Day, I hope today brings you the love and happiness you deserve. May it last forever.
