One of the hardest things about Christmas shopping is seeing all the amazing deals along the way and not being tempted into buying a few things for yourself. This year I've been relatively restrained, what with having a baby on the way and all (currently 8 days overdue!) but I did decide I needed a new evening cleanser, so headed to Feel Unique, and a couple items just fell into my basket along with it.
I've been using cleansing oils as the first step in my night time routine for a while now, but I keep finding I get quite a lot of eye irritation after lying in bed for a couple minutes after I'm all done, so I decided to switch it out to a balm instead. I didn't do much research, but I had heard really good things about the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, and upon seeing I could get 15% off, it promptly went into my basket. I've used it a couple times already now and I really like how easily it emulsifies on the skin and removes make-up really effectively.
I had a little peruse around the website to see what else I could get to make the most of the discount, and finally settled on a couple of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams that I've been meaning to try for ages now. I would have gone for some more neutral shades if all the ones I liked the look of hadn't been sold out, so instead I went for 01. Amsterdam and 08. San Paulo which are very me shades. Typically all the others are now back in stock, so if I like the formula I'll head back to pick some more up.
