My 7 Bank Holiday Payday Beauty Treats

It’s a bank holiday and payday weekend.  Here are the treats at the top of my list this month.

Zoella Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist

There’s no denying Zoella’s popularity, having taken the beauty blogging world by storm.  I’m hoping a few spritzes of this body mist will inspire me.

Zoella Blissful Mistful – £9.00 –

This is described as “a super light and feminine body spritz to scent your body with fresh and floral notes”. The spray is enriched with Vitamin E and fruit extracts and is designed to be sprayed all over.

Sleek Blush By 3 in Pumpkin

Sleek Blush By 3 Pumpkin – £9.99 –

This palette contains three blushes in one compact being a mix of matte, satin and shimmer shades. Highly pigmented and suited to all skin tones.  One reviewer has advised “not to be afraid of the orange” as it blends really well

Benefit Roller Lash

Benefit Roller Lash £19.50 –

Benefit’s latest mascara claims to be a roller for lashes with a trademarked Hook ‘n’ Roll brush which separates, lifts and curls. It has an instant curve setting formula which holds for 12 hours. Based on results from a consumer panel of 31 women after 4 weeks, 87% said it gave a long-lasting curl and 94% said it made eyes look more wide open.

Unless Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara, which I found very difficult to remove, Roller Lash claims to be easy to remove.  It also contains Provitamin B5 and Serin, two ingredients known for their lash conditioning benefits.

Lush – May Day Bath Bomb – Badger

Lush May Day Bath Bomb – Badger – £2.95

Who doesn’t love Lush bath bombs?  The proceeds of each of these fruity, sweet-smelling bath bombs (minus the VAT) will go to the groups behind the “Votes For Animals” campaign which aims to give animals a vote this election.  The groups are Animal Aid, The League Against Cruel Sports, and Save Me. The bath bombs contain fennel oil to stimulate your skin, and antiseptic rosewood oil to soothe and uplift. The fragrance is described as sweet and “sherbety”.

Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Handwash

Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb  Rose Handwash – £16.00 –

I love Molton Brown but it is definitely not the cheapest handwash on the market which relegates it to the treat category in my eyes.  I’m always vaguely disappointed when I don’t find Molton Brown in my hotel room bathroom.  This new handwash in a Rhubarb & Rose fragrance is definitely a treat.

It’s described as a sweet, moisturising hand wash blended with rose extract and yuzu fruit accord.  It has a ‘tart rhubarb’ heart note, a gentle rose base note and a comforting musk. Too special to leave out for the kids.

Astrid & Miyu Diamante Evil Eye Necklace in Silver

I love Astrid & Miyu’s quirky, yet somehow classic, jewellery designs and this evil eye design might be useful if your boss is anything like some of the joys I’ve previously worked with!


Astrid & Miyu Diamante Evil Eye Necklace in Silver – £59.00 –

This delicate necklace has a bohemian style and is crafted from rhodium plated brass.  The pendant is designed with concentric circles made up of white and powder blue cubic zirconia crystals. Astrid & Miyu suggest wearing this necklace with a peasant blouse and wide-leg jeans for a throwback to the 70s look.

ASOS 70’s Woven Festival Bag

ASOS 70’s Woven Festival Bag – £16.00 –

This is a rattan weave basket bag with long straps, a leather flap and an amazing pattern woven into it. Perfect for the summer.

    I agree with you, the moulton brown hand wash definitely falls into the treat category. Good thing it lasts for ages!
