mesoestetic pure renewing mask – Aja's pick

Since having a baby a year ago, I have really had to up my game when it comes to my skincare routine – reaching for more intensive products. When I saw the mesoestetic pure renewing mask, I knew this would be the perfect option to add into my rotation. The mask exfoliates and cleanses pores deep down, to help unclog and clear the skin from impurities and imperfections. I love a clay mask, and this one is no exception. I can feel it instantly absorbing any excess oil, providing a deep clean. The formula is something to make note of as well, including salicylic acid, mandelic acid and sodium lepargilate which has a comedolytic, refining, anti-bacterial, and anti-blemish effect.

Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Cleansing Oil – Scarlett's pick

Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Cleansing Oil is a game-changer for my skincare routine. As someone who suffers with a combination of dry and sensitive skin, finding a gentle yet effective cleanser is crucial, and this product delivers on all fronts. It effortlessly removes all makeup, even waterproof mascara, without any irritation or greasy residue. The formula is lightweight and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft, and hydrated. I love that it's fragrance-free and contains soothing ingredients like glycerin and vitamin E. Overall, I highly recommend this cleansing oil to anyone looking for a gentle and effective makeup remover.

My holy grail lip combo – Sarah's pick

I have discovered two absolute hidden gems from Rimmel London.  I've been on the hunt for an affordable, good quality signature lip combo and I have found just that with the Lasting Finish Lip Liner and the Oh My Gloss! Plump Gloss. I use the lip liner in the shade 760 (90's nude), as it's the perfect harmony between brown and pink, has a creamy application and pairs well with any eye look. I then use the gloss s in shade 801 (Angel Shimmer), to lock everything in, plump the lips and add shine. The gloss has gold flecks throughout that are subtle but blend really well with the liner. These products are not only such good quality, but they are really reasonably priced.

Herbal Essences bio:renew White Strawberry & Mint Shampoo & Conditioner – Rachel's pick

I have been loving the Herbal Essences bio:renew Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner duo lately. I wash my hair once a week thanks to having thick hair (plus working mum-of-two life) and the Herbal Essences bio:renew Shampoo & Conditioner does a wonderful job at cleansing my hair and scalp, whilst giving it a healthy boost each time. Enriched with histidine, sea kelp and aloe, I’ve noticed my hair actually feeling healthy and becoming less oily than it usually is towards the end of the week since I’ve been onto this hair duo. The shampoo gets in and successfully cleanses, removing all the dry shampoo build-up without stripping my hair dry. The conditioner is the perfect creamy pairing that glides through each strand, leaving my hair feeling soft, smooth, and tangle-free. To top it off, the Strawberry & Mint scent is the perfect balance of fresh and fruity and I love that it lingers after each wash, keeping the rejuvenation going. An extra big plus goes to value and being able to easily pick these products up again at my local supermarket!
