Beauty Spot: Current Favourite Products

I have recently purchased and been sent some products that I have been really enjoying, so I thought I would share them with you...

1. Beauty by Calvin Klein
I received this perfume as a birthday present and I don't wear it all the time, but when I do someone always asks me what perfume I'm wearing. It has quite a strong scent, I would say it has a floral scent but it's also slightly masculine like. I also like the simple packaging, its just cool! 

2. Nutrimetics Lip Apeel
So this lip product is something I always recommend to my friends (please don't mind that it looks a little dirty, I just get a lot of use out of it!). I'm not a huge fan of most of the nutrimetics skin care products, but this lip product has really worked for me. It has a gommage substance on the bottom and a lip balm on top. Firstly, you rub the white gommage over your lips, leave it on for a few minutes until it has dried, then wipe it off, it is basically a lip peel taking away dry skin, once the white stuff is off, I wash my lips and apply the balm. If I don't feel like doing the scrub first I also just apply this balm before putting on lipstick and it makes my lips feel nice and smooth.

3. Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil
I'm sure you've all heard about how good coconut oil is good for the hair and skin, but when I first tried pure coconut oil on my skin I feel like it did'nt really make any difference, so I just gave up on it. I was recently sent this body shop coconut oil to try, and I am actually really loving it! I put it on just before I go to bed (most nights) and as I am putting it on my skin just feels so's like magic!

4. Australis Neon's and Neutral's Palette
I found this palette in the discount box at Priceline, it was reduced to AU$2.50 (I was so EXCITED). I'm not one to use daring eyeshadow colours but I thought, it's only $2.50, it has the neutral colours, and I can just play around with the neon why not! I've found this to be so handy, I have been using the neutral colours for highlighting and contouring, and I am so happy with them. I keep it in my bag, it's the perfect size to carry around, plus it has a huge mirror!

5. Eles Deckchair Blue Nail Polish and Jordana Clear Coat
I was recently sent this Eles nail polish (which I will be using in an upcoming nail art tutorial!) and I am very impressed. First of all is a has a wide, thick brush which means you only need like 2 strokes to cover the whole nail and secondly the quality is so good that only one coat is needed for full coverage! 
As for the Jordana Clear Coat, I actually borrowed this from my mum, and I have to say it is the best top coat I have ever used! It glides on so easily over the nail polish and it doesn't smudge any nail art!

6. Lush Gorgeous Facial Moisturiser
In celebration of the new look Lush store in Rundle Mall, Lush offered some Adelaide Beauty Bloggers, a few products to try out. One of the products I was sent was their Gorgeous Facial Moisturiser. I have been really enjoying this moisturiser, is has an amazing floral scent and considering it's in a tub, it's actually easy to use. I just tilt it slightly and dab my finger in. It has a light consistency but when you rub it into the skin it feels extremely moisturing!

I would love to hear what your current favourite products are or if you have tried any of these products? :)
