5 Best Beauty Buys On My Shopping List This Weekend

I’m looking for some new beauty buys as the May Day bank holiday and Whitsun week approach in the hope of some warm weather in which to glam up a bit. Here are my top 5 best beauty buys to splash some cash on.

BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream [£26]

This is a BB, a CC and a tinted moisturiser all in one and claims to give a 215% increase in skin hydration after just one week. It’s ultra lightweight and easier to wear than a foundation. It comes in 10 shades, too.

Benefit’s Primping With The Stars [£26.50]

Mini make-up essentials in a neat box, Benefit’s Primping With The Stars contains everything you’d need to look glam. It contains what Benefit views as its iconic products and with the inclusion of They’re Real mascara and Benetint, it’s hard to disagree.

Charles Worthington London Instant Root Boost [£9.99 exclusive to Boots.com]

I’m dyeing to try this (ha!).  It comes in 5 shades, light blonde, dark blonde, warm brown, brown and dark brown and claims to cover grey hair, hide root growth and add temporary colour.  Anything that lengthens the time between expensive hair colouring appointments is fine by me.  Now that the sun is appearing my hair seems to be growing faster and that means so are the odd grey stragglers!

L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Exfotonic Body Polishing Gel £7.99

I really need to practise my fake tanning and this product is ideal for refining the skin and sloughing away dead cells in preparation for your tan.  It’s enriched with AHA and contains microbeads for gentle exfoliation.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or Dry Oil Golden Shimmer 50 ml [£21]

If I can’t master the fake tan, my fall back plan is this gorgeous multi purpose dry oil from Nuxe which contains plant oils and Vitamin E and tiny gold particles which will add a shimmer to face, body and hair. There are no preservatives and the product is silicone and mineral oil free.

    looks like you have picked the most amazing products available 😀 in terms of bare minerals, I had the foundation powder, bronzer, brushes and mineral veil set and absolutely love it. I also used their face wash and loved that too!

    Happy shopping!
