Escentual Haul

After hearing loads of people and blogs raving about French skincare I decided to actually try some out for myself. is a great website and all through June they had a third off skincare and so I had to take advantage. A lot of what I got were inspired by Emily and her French skincare haul because I was a complete newbie and had no idea what to go for.

I've heard loads of people absolutely rave about this product, which is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo 40ml which is £15.50 (but it's on offer at the moment for £13!). It is ideal for acne prone, oily skin and aims to reduce the look of blemishes and clear up your skin. I can honestly say this is great & I'm so glad I bought this! I personally think it's definitely reduced my blemishes as every time I've used this (nearly every night) the next day my face is so clear & I have no signs of new blemishes and the ones I have are reduced. I'm so happy with this and will definitely repurchase when it runs out. It is quite small for the price but you don't use a lot of product at all. 

The La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray is £8.50 (currently £7.20) and it is a toning mist again aimed at oily and acne prone skin. I actually don't have oily skin but it has started to become more oily in the summer. This is such a refreshing spray but I don't know if I'd repurchase this as I don't think it's tightened my pores or mattified my skin, like it says it does.

The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil for £17 was a huge spur of the moment purchase so I could get free delivery and I mainly bought it due to the great reviews. I love Nuxe as a brand and I like using facial and hair oils and this can be used on both. I've used it on both my hair and face and think it's great for a moisture boost to both. One thing I don't like about it is the smell, it has a very old lady perfume smell to it. I will also say it's hard to get a lot out at once, but I suppose that's just so you don't get too much out and waste it or make yourself too oily.

I've heard so many people rave about this Nuxe Reve de Miel Honey Lip Balm for £9.50 and I was apprehensive before because it would make it the most expensive lip balm I own. But, I have to say I am impressed with this. I apply it at night and before lipstick if I know it's going to be a drying lipstick and it is so hydrating! The scent is lovely & I can tell it's going to last me ages because I've used it nearly every night all week and it doesn't look like I've even touched it.

So there you go, there's my introduction and I can honestly say I'm glad I took the plunge. Let me know in the comments if there's any more French skincare that you'd recommend!

Til' next time! XOXO
