Beauty Bites #12

Juggling full-time work and all-time mother-and-wife-hood has been tricky so thanks for putting up with my sporadic beauty blog posts. { I’ve been yapping on about random shizz blogging a lot more on my lifestyle blog these days, if you’re interested.. }

Anyway, I thought it was time to bring back Beauty Bites, a popular blog series I ran years ago, showing snippets of my beauty stuff in my life.  { the last Beauty Bites post was almost 3 years ago…wowwww! }

What Are The Last 3 Beauty Products You Bought?

I am a curious cat { AKA nosey bi-atch! } but funnily enough, I am not a huge fan of those “What’s in my handbag?” posts.

Nothing wrong with them but it always makes me feel a bit uneasy when I look inside my handbag to find strands of hair, biscuit crumbs, chewed up chewing gum wrapped up in pieces of paper, snot-covered tissue paper { the perks of being a mum to a toddler! }, etc…

Anyway, back to the curious cat thing…

I’d love to know what are the last 3 beauty products you bought?

5 Beauty Products I Tried & Didn’t Like

5 beauty products I tried but didn't like

As a beauty blogger, I try a LOT of products.  Some I share with you on the blog almost immediately!  Some I forget to share about because I have baby brain forever…  And some I never share because I don’t want to be a Negative Nancy writing negative reviews and I only want to share with you awesome beauty finds.

That said, I decided to try something different and instead of sharing my new fave products { I have so many new faves! }, I thought I’d share with you 5 beauty products I tried but didn’t like.

Note :  I didn’t like them but it doesn’t mean that they are not worth trying.  Just because they didn’t work for me, it doesn’t mean they won’t work for you.


Tried & Tested Trio : Argan Oil Based Beauty Products

argan oil based beauty products

Firstly, thanks for all the supportive messages (comments, emails, etc) from my previous post!!!  I’m slowly but surely back on the blogging bandwagon (I even blogged about sausages on my lifestyle blog LOL!)

Anyway, let’s get on to today’s post…

An influx of beauty products recently landed on my desk and I noticed a popular trend – ARGAN OIL.  Makes a change from moroccan oil / coconut oil / rosehip oil.  I decided to pluck out 3 (yes, there were more!) of these argan oil based products and tell you a bit more about them.

What His Valentine’s Day Beauty Gift Really Means…

what your valentines beauty gift really means

Happy Valentine’s Day peeps!

For married old farts like me, we don’t expect a V-Day gift because you know, “it’s too commercialised”.

But for all those in the early honeymoon stages of a relationship… You’ve just opened your V-Day gift from your special someone, and ta-da, it’s a beauty product.

Whether you love it or hate it, you want to know what it really means…

Well, wonder no more because I’ve done all the analysing for you.
