This cost me £3.91 instead of the RRP of £5.88. Total saving - £1.97.
This face mask claims to tighten pores and smooth your skins surface. Soap and Glory claim that this is down to: ''Fomes Officinalis Extract' which is apparently a mushroom extract that helps tighten pores. 'Salicylic Acid' which loosens up the dead cells that contibute to pore clogging. 'Kablin' That's cosmetic for clay. It sops up extra oil on your skin and smoothes your skin's surface! 'Vitamins E & C' Antioxidants.'
We shall see. I tried this on wednesday night and my skin was left feeling soft. Soap and Glory say to leave it on for fifteen minute for a 'real deep-cleaning do-it-yourself kind of 'facial'.' So that's how long I left it on for. It's no facial, but my skin was smooth. Going to trial this for a bit longer before I give any real opinions on it though. One thing that does put my off is the scent. It's hard to describe but it's a little unpleasant.
This cost me £5.24 instead of the RRP of £7.87. Total saving - £2.63.
I've got quite nasty dark circles under my eyes. In my attempt to combat this I'm starting to try out different gels and creams for my eyes. Soap and Glory say to 'pat a layer of Super Eyes, Super Eyes around the contour of your eyes every morning and/or evening - whenever toy feel like you need a little lift'. This product contains 'de-puffing caffeine, pro-vitamin panthenol and soothing aloe vera juice'.
I was a little put off when I first opened this as the gel contains a pink shimmer in it. However, this doesn't show up when I put this under my eyes which is a good thing! My first thoughts.. well, I'm not sure yet. Going to also give this one a fair trial before I give my opinions.
Have you tried any of these products before or are you keen to? Let me know!

Blush Trio '01' Cool Dusk
Eye Trio '01' Moonlight Lustre
I wanted the pink blush trio when I first saw it in the sale when it was £5 reduced from £12.50. I'm so glad I waited, £1 is a complete bargain. The eyeshadow trio was reduced from £9.50 to £4 and then to £1.
Have you got anything from the body shop sale? Or maybe you've put off buying something and got it for a bargain price? Let me know!!

Yes you can see my hand and camera in the mirror. I'm still awful at photography, why change a habit of a lifetime :P In the pan, Candid Coral looks darker than Coralista however when I swatch them on my hand (photo to come) they are almost identical. If anything, coralista is actually a little bit pinker in colour. Now I also own Coralista (after ages of debating whether I needed it or not, finally decided I did! and thanks mum for buying it for me - haha) I can't say the staying power of the ELF blush is as good but to be honest, I never expected it to be. What I will say is that they are extremely similar with the Coralista as I said having a slightly more pink tone to it. Although this isn't an exact dupe by any means, with the ELF blush £19 cheaper than the Benefit one, in my opinion, it's perfect for beauty on a budget.
Enough comparing it to Benefit, this product is fantastic. It gives my cheeks a gorgeous glow and has moved from my blusher drawer to my every day make up bag. I will definately repurchase this. If Coral colours aren't your thing, ELF have other gorgeous shades on their website at www.eyeslipsface.co.uk that are definately worth a look.
Have you tried any of the Studio line blushes? What do you think of them and what shades do you like?

Sorry for being somewhat AWOL over the last couple of weeks. I've spent most of it driving around to various parts of the country to visit people after passing my driving test! I promise from today updates will be more frequent. I know my favourite blogs are the ones that are updated frequently!
I have, however, started something for my blog. I'm using a different drugstore mascara every week at the moment to find out which, in my opinion, is the best and what I think about each mascara. I'm a mascara addict and I hope that my opinions will help somewhat! First up will be Rimmel's Sexy Curves. It's been 3 days and I'm absolutely adoring it so.. it'll be a good first review! TTYL xxxx
