I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).
Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin
I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.

This is a must have product in my daily skincare routine, in fact, I have

I am also giving away like 30 lipsticks which makes me kind of proud. I should really give away a lot more, but I could never bring myself to parting with my precious. Think Gollum from The Lord Of The Rings, ahem.
