Sarah Chapman The Home Facial


Morning ladies so whilst we've been in lockdown & I've had a little bit more time on my hands I've invested & treated myself to a few new beauty purchases that I'm delighted with & thought I'd share with you.

First up is this home facial tool that's brilliant for toning, easing any tension carried in your jawline & generally adding a radiance to your skin.  Having read some of the reviews prior to ordering I was expecting it to be a little painful at first but I haven't found this to be the case at all.  It couldn't be easier to use & literally takes around 5 minutes & whilst at first it might seem like a faff once you get used to incorporating it into your moisturising routine you won't notice that little bit of extra time.  I've been using mine both of a morning & evening after applying my serums/moisturisers & I love it & would definitely recommend.  Plus so much cheaper & less hassle than going to a salon for regular facials!

acide Hyaluronique


It probably won't come as a surprise to hear that Hyaluronic Acid is brilliant for plumping & hydrating our skin, in fact I've long been a fan of such serums.  So when I happened to see that you could get Hyaluronic Acid in capsule form I thought it worth a shot.  Just one tablet a day means it's easy to incorporate into your daily routine & along with the facial tool there's definitely been a noticeable difference to the appearance of my skin.  Even hubby commented on it & considering all his spare time goes on paperwork which we're still filling in that's connected to our relocation or working on the house, it's a miracle he's noticed!!

Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream Cream-Gel Bronzer


This next product is something I used to use years ago & fell back in love with last summer & have actually been using throughout the year.  It's lovely & light to wear, can be built up for extra coverage & during summer when my skin has a little natural colour I just wear this instead of any tinted moisturiser.

Chanel ombre premiere a paupieres creme


I've also treated myself to a few new bits of make up as now we're living in the South of France I wanted some new products that enable me to achieve a light natural look, that aren't too heavy to wear during summer & also had more of a coral base, which I feel is a little softer whilst my hair is lighter.

First up is this cream eyeshadow that can be built up in terms of colour & just gives my eyelids a warm natural glow.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner


Whilst I wanted a more natural day look, I feel a little naked without my eyeliner so thought I'd try this soft green shade for adding a little definition.  Easy to apply, no need to sharpen & can be smudged for a softer look but once set, stays put so no panda eyes!  Plus it's available in a whole host of colours if green isn't your thing.

Chanel les beiges healthy glow sheer colour stick


I also treated myself to a new blusher, again in a more coral shade, that whilst sheer in colour can be built up should you wish & just gives my cheeks a little definition & colour when worn with the above bronzer. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour


My final treat was the above lipstick, again more coral that I'm used to wearing but perfect for bringing my new natural look together & adding a little colour to my lips.

Back to today & it's a simple maxi & blouse combo.
