So what could you win? I got a sneak peek at the collection from The Kit recently and let me tell you, the winner's jaw is going to DROP.
I've heard lots of good and bad things about this micellar cleanser, so I'm quite excited to try this out. If it works as well as my favourite Nivea or Marcelle cleansing toners, then I'm sold!
I've been feeling alternately dull or shiny with my skin lately. Maybe this Liquid Halo foundation will help perk me up. This foundation is HD ready and contains gel pigments that help to even out skin and provide flawless coverage.
I've always been a fan of Lash Blast and this latest formulation could be just what I need so I can layer on the mascara clump-free!
I love this cleansing toner!! It is gentle, thorough and such good value for your money. My friend Angela even wrote an ode to this product recently, it's that good.
I never use lip liners (I know, so shameful) and I really should as I get chronic lipstick teeth. This one is reportedly designed to prevent bleeding and since it's clear, it will work for all colours!
I've heard good things about Dove's Pure Care Dry Oil so I'm excited to use this one during the winter months and as apres-beach hair care!
This hydrating antioxidant mist helps firm, re-hydrate and prevent signs of aging. You can use this as a refreshing toner before moisturizer or just throughout the day whenever you feel dry or to give a dewy look to your makeup.
Awhile back, I went through a Clinique phase, but it's been years since I have used any of their products. I've heard conflicting reviews about some of their products, but I've never had any issues with their creams. This one is designed to be used both day and night, which tells me it's probably better for the winter, or as just a night cream in summer.
I literally squealed when I saw this one in the box, as I recently had lost my last cuticle balm and was in need of one! My cuticles are always dry and raggedy, but this oil immediately leaves them looking 100 times better. It even helps to moisturize your nails!
Similarly to Clinique, it's been years since I tried any Mary Kay products. They have always worked well for me and are really great quality for the price. This finishing spray is another god-send as wedding season arrives. I'll be sure to pack this along to set makeup for my friends on their big day!
I've never tried a hair masque, but the idea does intrigue me. This mask contains buriti oil to help seal in moisture and repair damaged hair. I'm a tad worried it will weigh down my fine hair, but if so, then my thicker haired friends will rejoice to get this luxurious freebie.
CC/BB creams for eyes seems to be the new frontier for the alphabet creams and here is Olay's contribution to the trend. I don't really have dark circles, so I'm not anticipating too much from this one, but will be watching out more for the anti-aging properties it contains.
Now who doesn't love a good body scrub? Begone dry elbows and heels! This glycerin based scrub combines the scrubbing powers of sugar and salt to provide a deep-down clean. I can already tell this one will make my shower slippery since when I opened it to peek a smell, I got oils all over my hands!
Serums, the godsend of moisture. Ever since I discovered serums, I've been addicted. Here's another to throw onto the pile! This serums is formulated for all skin types and contains 20 different plant extracts. It not only rejuvenates skin and fights signs of aging, it also minimizes pores!! So. Excited.
Thanks again to The Kit for introducing me to so many One Minute Miracles!
