Escentual Picks


First of all, I’d like to apologise for the terrible photo. It’s been a long day and to be honest, I just didn’t have the energy to take 20 different photos in five different locations and lightings. I hope you understand 😉

Anyway, last week I discovered a beauty website that was new to me, Even better than that, they were having a 25% off everything deal! Talk about making a good first impression.

I immediately added Effaclar Duo [+] to my cart, as I’d been on the hunt for it since its release and couldn’t find it anywhere. I checked Boots and chemists everywhere I went to find the wonder product, but it was nowhere to be found. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found it online. Effaclar Duo [+] is said to unclog pores and fight blemishes, as well as improving the appearance of scars and redness. La Roche Posay is a skincare brand that I’ve always loved, so I have high hopes for this product! I’ll post a review ASAP 😉 Buy here.

Just before I went to check out, I saw Bioderma Micelle Solution recommended for me at the bottom of the page. This is the stuff that beauty bloggers dream of. A long coveted product available readily online, for a pretty good price, as well as 25% off – could it be true?! I immediately added the 500ml bottle to my cart without hesitation. This product is talked about by every beauty blogger and their grandma, and at last I can see what all the hype is about. A review will also be up as soon as possible! Buy here.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect delivery-wise with, as it was my first time ordering from them, but I must say that I am really pleased. It took just one week to arrive, which is pretty good for a UK website to Ireland. When I was ordering it said delivery could take 7-14 working days, so I was expecting it to take a lot longer. You can imagine the excitement on my face when I answered the door to the postman today. They also threw in a free nail file, which gives them extra brownie points!

I can’t wait to try out both of these products tonight, nothing is better than a mid-week boost from beauty products!
