NOTD Barry M Pale Purple

Just got my hands on the new Barry M shade Pale Purple (308) this week and thought I would do a NOTD for you all. Its a really pretty pale purple (like the name suggests!) with a slightly pink undertone to it. I love it!

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend :)

Neal's Yard Haul

A couple of weeks ago I heard about Marie Claire offering 20% off Neal's Yard products so I went and bought the magazine and made an order last week, which I received today!
I have been using Neal's Yard products since last September and had just started to run out so this was perfect timing!

What I ordered:
  • Nourishing Orange Flower Night Cream
  • Orange Flower Water (repurchase)
  • Orange Flower Facial Polish (repurchase)
  • Orange Flower Facial Wash
They also sent me samples of the Orange Flower Night Cream, White Tea Facial Mask and Frankincense Hydrating Cream! Who doesn't love free samples :)

I have extremely dry skin and have been using the Orange Flower Water, Orange Flower Facial Polish and Jasmine Enriching Cream (which I use at night) since September and have really seen an improvement in my skin, its not as dry and flaky any more. This time I decided to try out the Orange Flower facial wash and night cream as I have really been liking other products in the Orange Flower range.

I can especially recommend the Orange Flower Facial Polish for those of you that have dry skin as it exfoliates gently to get rid of any flaky skin without drying your face out like many other scrubs I have used in the past.

Has anyone else been using Neal's Yard products? What are your favourites?
