Haul: Europe Trip - France and Italy

I'm backkkkk...so not even going to lie I've been back for a couple of weeks. I've just been trying to settle in and unpack. So I'm going to start off with an easy (and my favourite) post. 

So first I went to Paris. Which was so beautiful (if you'd like me to put up some pictures let me know). 


Monoprix

Is equivalent to Kmart/Target/Big W combined with a supermarket.

1. Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss - €4.50 (approx. $7.04)
I know that it's expensive but it was on my last few days in Paris and I had some euros left over so I spent it. Plus I really wanted this particular shade since I first saw it on YouTube. 

2. Models Own Hypergel Polish in Cornflower Gleam - €5.99 (approx. $9.36)

3. La Roche-Posay Effaclar duo [+] - €11.50 (approx. $18.06)
This was on sale. I'm really sorry I didn't take a notice of the full price but I think it was around €16-18


À Vous de Plaire

4. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre EDT - €86.76 (approx. $135.64)

5. Versace Yellow Diamond EDT (Sample)

6. Versace Bright Crystal EDT (Sample) 


Then I was off to Italy. The food there is AMAZING, if you love pizza and ice cream. And let's be honest who doesn't?????



Kiko

7. Eyes Clics 101 - Free with my purchase
This is just an empty eyeshadow case to put the eyeshadow I bought in. They gave this to me for free which was AWESOME. Australia get onto that...or at least samples...

8. Eyeshadow in Infinity 213 - €4.90 (approx. $7.66)
This is similar to Inglot's freedom system

9. Extra Volume Lipgloss in 04 - €2.90 (approx. $4.53)

10. Sugar Mat Nail Lacquer in 15 - €1.90 (approx. $2.97)

Kiko is so affordable and there is so many things to choose from. I highly recommend it. I got these things in Florence but there were Kiko stores all over Europe. I saw one in France and London. 


There is a part 2 still to come so I hope you like hauls...

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 



1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

"This super concentrated skin hydrating serum has a light formulation, which is easy to apply and works deep into the skin. The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
