29 Feb Jumia February Beauty Haul
Hi everyone! Sorry for my absence last week. My mummy turned 60! And because I am so extra, I planned not one but TWO parties for her. I also spoke at Social Media Week (can you imagine?? ME??) on Friday- which was SO much fun by the way. I was so nervous beforehand but I think I did a decent job. So I’m exhausted, but glad to be back here.
Once again, the good people at Jumia.com allowed me run wild in their Beauty and Health Section. Like I mentioned previously, it still blows my mind that their Beauty section is soon extensive. It is definitely worth a look. So I wanted to show you my new goodies.
I had a BeautyBlender, but it is pink and squishy- and therefore VERY attractive to my kids. Everytime they come into my room, one of them invariably snatches it, rubs it on the floor, CHEWS it, or uses it as football. My poor pink sponge was in tatters. So I was very happy to find the original BeautyBlender on the Jumia site. The BeautyBlender is one of those beauty tools that has become an essential part of my makeup routine, so much so that I quite frankly cannot remember what I was doing before it. It makes my foundation application even, and I love that it adds some hydration to my foundation (I use my sponge wet) which makes my skin look more glow-y and luminous.
I’ve mentioned my Turmeric and Bentonite clay mask several times on the site. So glad I spotted this bottle because it is a generous quantity and should last me a while. Organic Turmeric works waaaaaaay better than the non organic by the way, so make sure you get that!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I don’t use eyeshadow to be honest, but I use black liner ALL the time. I got this to make my eyeliner last longer. AND IT DOES! I LOVE THIS! Applying this really mattifies my very oily eyelids thereby extending my liner’s life.
Carol’s Daughter lavender and Vanilla Dry Oil Mist
I’m obsessed with Vanilla scents, and I like Dry Oil because it gives your skin a nice sheen without making it greasy . I love the way my skin looks and feels when I use it, although the scent is much more lavender than vanilla.
All these products are available on the Jumia website (www.jumia.com).
And that’s my latest haul! Have you tried any of these products?
