Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser - Essential Moisture

I've fallen in love with this little can of wonder, I know this has been blogged about lots but seriously, if you haven't tried this yet, go and get it, it makes life so much easier, I know this might sound crazy based on it's name but you literally just spray a fine mist of this on, rub it in and done, no waiting around for it to dry, no greasy sticky feeling, just lovely moisturised skin that's ready to roll. I got the essential moisture version (or the yellow one, if you're like me) mainly because I liked the scent of this one best but I also get super dry skin so thankfully this is probably the best version for me, the other two versions are Cocoa Radiant and Aloe Fresh. One of the things I was worried about with this is that it would run out really quickly but I've been using mine for over a month and it's still going strong which I'm quite happy with to be honest.

One of my other concerns with this is that it does contain Parabens which I'm trying to avoid at the minute and go for more natural beauty products but I think it's down to personal choice really and it's one of the few things I'm using at the minute with them in so I think it should be ok.

Also, this is an absolute god send in the cold weather, normally I skip moisturiser, in favour of getting into my warm pyjamas immediately after getting out of the shower because I'm just too damn cold to wait around for moisturiser to sink in but this means I can spray and go - amazing! I picked mine up in Boots for £4.99 but it's 3 for 2 across body products at the minute in Boots (I think!!) so get down there if you do want to pick one up.

L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint

I really wanted to love this foundation, I'd read several reviews that it was similar to the Armani Maestro foundation but at the fraction of the price so as soon as I heard it was hitting stores, I rushed out to hunt it down. The packaging is nice, a frosted glass bottle with a metallic purple lid but it's a little impractical, after a few uses of using this in your makeup routine, it's going to have greasy prints all over it. It also has no pump meaning there's potential for lots of wastage with this especially as the formula is so liquid-y, props to L'Oreal though on the fact that they've marketed it so that the lack of pump means that you get the perfect amount if you pop your finger over the top of the bottle and tip it upside down, the amount left on your finger is apparently the perfect amount to cover your whole face, which leads me onto the formula of this product, it's very watery and is so sheer that when I applied it didn't actually do anything to my skin really other than making my forehead look a little orange and greasy, I got the shade 110 - Warm Ivory which to be fair does state that it's warm so it might just have been a little too warm for my pale skin because it did match well to other areas on my face just not my forehead. It does state on the packaging that this is L'Oreals lightest foundation formula ever but it really is light, I don't tend to go for high coverage anyway, my day to day base is the Dr Jart BB cream but I do like something that's going to give a little bit of coverage.

I'm going to re-try this in a few weeks to see if my skins just not loving it at the minute with the change in weather but honestly, I can't see that my opinion will change massively. It comes in a 20ml bottle, which is 10ml less than an average foundation, which I actually quite like because it means the bottle is quite small and it's very easy to transport but it does mean that you're paying a similar price for something that is a third of the size.

I picked mine up in Boots for £9.99, but three for two across makeup in Boots and Superdrug at the minute.

What are your thoughts on this?
