Products from Direct Cosmetics*
I've been blogging about beauty products for almost three years now, and so when it comes to beauty websites it's fair to say that I've probably shopped at or at least heard of most of them from other blogs. So when I find somewhere new it's always a refreshing change, and I was excited to be introduced to Direct Cosmetics- a beauty bargain website selling everything from haircare and skincare to makeup, perfumes and bath/bodycare. Basically a beauty lovers dream, with a nice selection of products with discounts making them a fraction of what you'd pay in shops. Here are the things that caught my eye and what I thought of them!
Elizabeth Arden Hydrating Mask (£6.99)
First of all, what a bargain! This has an RRP of £22 so at under £7 this is an amazing discount, especially when cheap highstreet masks can cost up to this. You know with a brand like Elizabeth Arden that you're always going to get quality products and this is no exception, it's the most beautiful rich mask that leaves your skin feeling so soft and supple. I'm really enjoying using this at the moment and would go as far to say it's one of the best face masks I've ever tried.
Roc Complete Lift Volume Restorer (£9.99) // Roc Hydra+ Nutrition (£7.90)
Roc is a brand I've heard so many great things about, but aside from a couple of samples I've never properly tried them out myself. I'm currently working my way through other day and night creams at the moment but go through them so fast these were definitely a wise choice. First impressions are that I absolutely love both of these, the Hydra+ cream especially is one of the most hydrating skincare products I've ever tried. It's designed for very dry skin which I've been suffering with a bit lately, I think my cleanser is to blame so it might be time for a re-jig of the routine some time soon.
Nicole by OPI Back in my Gloria Days // Great Minds Pink Alike
Again something I've always heard good things about but never tried are the Nicole by OPI polishes, I've only ever tried their regular line. You can see how beautiful both of these are, the swatch shows both with two coats which build up perfectly to an opaque finish. I thought the gorgeous 'Great Minds Pink Alike' would be ideal for the spring and summer, despite the name it's much more of a coral colour. I'm quite boring with my nail polish choices these days but something about the purple sparkle 'Back in my Gloria Days' caught my eye and I'm obsessed with it. This arrived with a 'Modern Family' printed cellophane on the lid, a quick search told me this was from a 2012 collection. It's so pretty, I have it on my nails right now and can't stop staring at them!
