I never really need an excuse for a lunchtime browse of Superdrug or Boots, add a wedding into the mix and I have a few new bits that won’t be far from my washbag for a little while.
Birth of Venus
This Jelly facemask leaves my skin feeling soft, moisturised and just amazing. It lasts six months, doesn’t need to be chilled, and you only need the smallest pinch to cover your whole face. I was gifted a tub of this at a Lush event a few weeks back, and I’ve used it about once a week (including the night before Hannah’s wedding).

Batiste – Stylist Texture Me Texturizing Spray
This came in a Glossybox a couple months back, and I really like what it does to a braided hair style. This really adds some grip and hold to a style, without stickiness like hairsprays. I only use this on dirty hair, it’s impossible to brush this out without doing damage to my hair in the process so I wash it put instead.

Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Cream Cotton
I knew after the makeup trial I wanted a dupe for the lipstick I would be wearing at Hannah’s wedding day, mainly because I found the delilah version so drying. A wondeful lady in my local Superdrug helped me swatch lip products for about 10 minutes to find a close match, and I adore this colour. It’s not drying, long lasting and lightly staining, wears nicely and has been in my handbag ever day since the wedding.

Mitchum Advanced Control Anti Perspirant & Deodorant
With a full day of bridesmaid duties in a maxi dress, I knew I needed a heavy duty deodorant. Fleur De Force frequently sings the praises of the Mitchum Deodorants, so I grabbed one to try out. And it’s now easily my favourite deodorant /antiperspirant . It was incredibly effective, both at the wedding and during the week whilst running around with my cousins.
