I thought I'd share with you a few purchases and bits I've been sent recently and have been obsessing over ever since. This was a great week or two for adding new skincare to my arsenal, and I think I've found my Holy Grail nail polishes too!

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel - An expensive product and one that I have so far found to be worth every penny, this cleansing gel turns into a lovely milky consistency when you add water and it leaves your skin beautifully soft and revitalised. Packed full of vitamins and fruit enzymes, this is a real treat for the skin, and one that my skin has been really enjoying. Keep an eye out for my full review on this soon.

Magnitone BareFaced - I used a daily cleansing brush years ago when they first became all the rage and gave it up soon enough when it became too abrasive for my sensitive skin. With my recent skin troubles, though, I thought I'd bite the bullet and buy the Magnitone for a deep cleanse and tone - and I haven't looked back! The beautiful orange brush is gentle yet effective, and is such a pleasure to use that I look forward to getting it out for each cleanse. I'd definitely recommend this little gem!

Pixi Glow Tonic - A repurchase that I waited far too long to make, the Pixi Glow Tonic may well be my favourite toner ever. A sweep over my face and neck after cleansing with just a dab of the tonic gently exfoliates, tones and brightens the skin. It really is as simple as that, and I think this will be the first of many repurchases of this cult product.

Caudalie Grape Water Spray - I was looking for a facial spray to refresh and hydrate my skin on warm days so that it didn't get clogged, and this one promises to boost hydration levels by up to 127%. I must admit I'm not totally in love with this product as I don't feel like it completely lives up to these claims, but it does act as a lovely refreshing mist on a warm day so I'll definitely be using it up.

Essie Gel Couture Nail Polishes - I was lucky enough to be sent these grand spanking new nail polishes from Essie last week and I've been fangirling over them ever since! Their gel formula requires no UV lamp or even much drying time: simply apply 2 coats of colour followed by the Top Coat and you're good to go! I know most nail polishes claim to last for a week, not chip, apply evenly and fly you to the moon, but this one really does live up to its claims of super shiny, chip-free nails in 2 super simple stages! The brush is shaped to fit to your nail, the shades are amazing - gah, I just love them! Full rave review to come soon, but I would highly recommend checking these out! 

I also received a few fun samples that I'm yet to try, including the Balance Me Radiance Face Mask which aims to polish and hydrate skin, Embryolisse Nourishing Moisturiser which contains fatty acids and vitamins to treat the skin, and a Korres Santorini Vine Body Milk (who doesn't love Korres?). I have really high hopes for the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield with SPF30 as well as the Ioma Energize Vitality Shot, so I'll keep you posted on those. As for hair products, I'm saving the Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Nourishing Mask and Nexxus Nutritive Shampoo & Conditioner for a Sunday pamper session.

How I love a haul! What have got through your mailbox recently?
