1. I *almost* bought the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer… had it in my hand and was lining up to pay at Sephora. But then I noticed it is full of GLITTER on the swatch on the back of my hand. Nope, I can’t do it. So sad because it does generally have decent reviews online. I might get a sample to see how I like the sparkles on my face.

    And I love that Sacred Truth mask! I’d never tried any fresh masks from LUSH before that one and I was hooked.

    What about adding a facial oil? In the winter months my skin gets so dehydrated and flaky. I find adding an oil and using it like a serum helps a lot. I’ve used anything from plain argan oil to blended oils from Kiehl’s and Clarins.

      Omg are you sure you got a normal batch of the tarte BB cream? The past tubes I have used/my current one aren’t glittery but it’s not a totally matte finish either.try another sample from Sephora maybe? Yes sacred truth is the bomb! I like their catastrophe one with blueberries in the summer, very refreshing. Hmm I’ll have to check into that about a facial oil…thanks for the suggestion 🙂 never actually considered that before!

      • I’m 100% sure it was a normal batch of the Tarte BB cream. Maybe it was the weird store lighting. Who knows! I definitely will get another sample from Sephora.

          Yeah definitely! If you’re looking for a BB cream I love the CoverGirl one that recently came out. It’s more of a matte finish but I’m a big fan of it (sorry for the delayed reply, just got back from a trip!)

  2. I love the sound of that face mask. I’ve started using the No7 range this winter (from Boots UK), especially their hot cloth cleanser, so that’s now one of my skincare essentials. I do quite like the Simple range too and use their moisturiser as well as their facial wash sometimes. x

      Yess, the lush face masks are great! I haven’t tried anything from the No7 range yet but I’ll have to check it out, always in the market for a good cleanser 🙂 The simple range really surprised me because the ingredients seem high quality/not harsh on skin but it’s drugstore prices

  3. I especially love the tarte BB cream (I use the amazonian clay 12-hour foundation all the time) and the aveeno lotion! My hands get so dry in the winter without it! Love these winter skincare essentials! 🙂
