Finding Fab Beauty Bits

A little while ago, with thanks to the power of "the blog" I discovered two pritty fab beauty products which I would otherwise never have even known about.

I was very kindly gifted both of these lovelies and just wanted to let everyone know how I got on with them.

The first item was from the brand Vinchy and is actually something I have had in my possession for quite a while now but, I'll be honest, I was a little reluctant to use it at first, simply because my skin colouring can be a tad awkward to match up to foundations, however, after trying this just once I really wish I'd braved it sooner.

The Vinchy Ideal Soleil BB Cream is great...

...and despite this "Natural Tan" shade not being a total spot on match for me, it's actually not too far off the mark to be honest and when mixed with my usual foundation it does the trick fantastically.

Now obviously with it being a BB Cream, the coverage isn't great for full on drama or anything, but if you're after a more toned down look with just a little bit of something on the skin, then this is great.

So as I said, I actually tend to use BB Creams mixed in with my regular foundation and I do this for two reasons:

1. The BB Cream helps to bulk out expensive foundations making them last longer
2. BB Creams really help to tone down coverage of foundation helping create an overall look which isn't too full on or heavy looking - the type of make up look I prefer.

And this little Vinchy product certainly didn't go letting me down that's for sure - it did just what I needed it to do.

Next up, is another great product, one by a brand I have actually already had the pleasure of discovering in the past (find post here).

Roger & Gallet sent me this fresh smelling Gingembre Rouge Energising Sorbet body lotion and I have absolutely loved using it.

For a start - well just look at it - "it" in all it's fabulous pinkness...

...a major point earner in my book as I do love nice packaging.

This body lotion is packed with fruity pomegranate oil which helps give it a really yummy scent - something else I absolutely love from my products - lots of fruitiness.

However, winning scent aside, I found the cream itself to be just as fabulous - it feels so hydrating and makes skin feel nourished and soft for hours after use.

I love this skin sorbet so much that I simply have to allow it to fall into the category as being one of my current favourite new beauty finds.

I'm certainly going to have some fabulous skin this winter that's for sure
