Shopping My Stash #97

Here's what I've been reaching for this week:

From Walden Natural Perfumes I've been enjoying The Solid Earth EdP* which opens with Petitgrain, has heart notes of Patchouli, Rosewood & Black Pepper and a base of Vetiver and Amyris. It's woody, spicy and creamy and perfect for winter. The other one I've been reaching for from the range is A Different Drummer EdP* which has top notes of fruity Bergamot and Tobacco with a heart of Cedarwood, Black Pepper and Patchouli. Base notes are Amyris, Tonka Bean and Vanilla. It's spicy, woody and has a touch of sweetness. 

I love picking up samples with my order (you can pick up to 5 with a £10 order for a small nominal charge - see the selection currently available HERE). This month as part of my Love Lula Accredited Blogger picks I chose REN's Satin Perfection BB Cream 3ml* (£1) which we've received before in a beauty box. This is the perfect try-me size as you get several uses from the tube. The silicone free BB cream has colour adaptive technology meaning it will adjust to your skin tone giving flawless and sheer cover (yup, full size is on the wishlist!)

From last March's Beauty Box* I've been enjoying Laidbare's For Richer for Porer Pore Minimiser Facial Masque* (50ml - £7.99) which I find perfect to use on my oily t-zone. It's formulated with Kaolin Clay which draws out impurities and toxins, Japanese Seaweed extract detoxifies and smoothes, Shea Butter hydrates, Liquorice reduces inflammation and Rose Water soothes. The masque also contains natural micro-exfoliation particles which help to stimulate cell renewal and exfoliate. It really makes my skin look bright, healthy and clear.

My final duo are from the JOIK Advent Calendar** first up their gorgeous Silky Lipbalm - Velvety Red (which is worth £6) and gives the lips a moisturising pop of colour. The second item is their Sweet Orange & Mint Body Oil 50ml which deeply nourishes the skin leaving it smelling delicious. You can see my thoughts on the Advent Calendar contents HERE.

*All items featured I received as part of the Love Lula Accredited Blogger Program. 
**I put £57 towards the JOIK Advent Calendar.
