Fab Five Beauty Products

Friday, where have you been all this week??  Even though my weekend won’t start till tomorrow…because I am rostered on to do another Saturday shift at work.  Babies are expensive, need I say more?!  Anyway, welcome to another Fab Five Friday post featuring products from ELES, La Clinica, Batiste, Benefit and The Body Shop…

1.  ELES Masquerade Collection – FAB NAILS!

ELES have introduced a brand new collection of 12 nail colours inspired by costumed carnivals and 15th century masquerade balls.  The colours are bright, playful and best of all, for preggo ladies like yours truly – toluene, formaldehyde and DBP free!  They are priced at $20 each and have wicked names like Casanova Red, Phantom Black and Nude Contessa.

2.  La Clinica Firming Lift Helixer Facial Serum – FAB FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

This potent serum contains…wait for it!…SNAIL SECRETION!!!  Ling from Six Inch Heel has been raving on and on about it so when she kindly gave me a bottle (no I did NOT use force…honest!), I was elated to try it!  And I’ve only been using for the last 2 weeks and it’s early days, but so far, so good!  An in-depth review will follow once I use it for at least 4-6 weeks 🙂

3.  Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry – FAB SMELL!

I am a chronic daily hair washer so dry shampoos aren’t really for me…but this baby smells GORGEOUS!  I can’t resist spritzing and rubbing some onto my scalp in the mornings just to freshen my barnet!  Seriously, they need to bottle smell and sell the fragrance because I love it a lot!

4.  Benefit The POREfessional – FAB PRIMER!

The other day I was searching high and low for a makeup primer in my beauty stash…and then stumbled upon this unopened beauty.  I cracked it open and it’s been fan-dabby-dozy!  Masks pores and creates a smooth canvas prior to foundation!


Oh dear!  You have permission to slap my wrists for being a naughty beauty blogger!  These awesome shimmer atomisers are no longer for sale!  But I only recently played with them and realised that they give a sexy shimmery glow on face and decolletage!  And it’s so fun squeezing those puffs…!!  Anyway, maybe The Body Shop might re-release them…??

*All products featured were kindly gifted by brands or friends.  Thank you lovelies 🙂

Have an awesome weekend everyone!!!  What beauty products are tickling your fancy at the moment?

    I have tried so many different dry shampoos and Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry is by far the best product I have ever used. And it smells great. love the dry shampoo. I swear I couldn’t live without it.

    I want to get Dry shampoo. Especially your experience impressed me. As a beauty lover, I am a big fan of gel nail polish of Runway Professional. 🙂

    Would the POREfessional primer be good for oily/combination skin? I find a lot of primers leave my skin greasy 🙁
