A few years ago, I went on a trip with my Liteature class to Stradford upon Avon to watch a play at the RSC.
Before the play had started, we had some time to roam around Shakespeare's wonderful city as it isn't too big, so it would be difficult to get lost.
As I started exploring, the small town I came across a Space NK boutique and of course I had to go in.
My friends waited by the entrance while I toured myself around the store testing out so many different skincare and makeup products.
At the time, I just wanted to test my shade out for a few products but didn’t want to buy something instantly and wanted to think out what I wanted to buy.
So, today I have a few products which I selected to order online.
members at Space NK
which I am a member of, and anyone can too, we get early access to any Black Friday offers before the huge rush on the actual day. It was perfect in my case, because there were so many amazing offers everywhere, and I was just too overwhelmed with all the stuff, so I just took a step back on Friday.
Now moving on to the Haul, after my long story. Let me show you the things I picked up and why I chose to get them !
I’ve been eyeing Fresh
skincare ever since it landed at SpaceNK because honestly it’s one the nicest skincare brands, especially if you have sensitive like I do.
I’ve heard lots of lovely reviews and seen so many YouTube videos of people using the fresh beauty toner and I’ve just been meaning to try it.
Also, Rosewater is really beneficial for you skim, as it helps keep your skin hydrated.
Next I picked up another Fresh Skincare goodie, but a Christmas gift edition.
If you’ve been following my blog and Instagram for a while, then you might already know how much I love the fresh soy cleanser ! I recommend it to anyone, even anyone who has super sensitive skin.
I also read online that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is a fan of the Fresh lip products, so of course I had to see what all the fuss is about.
With the cleanser, it's just a Ride Or Die kinda product. It is the perfect gentle every day cleanser which I look forward to use in my daily routine.
Moving on to some makeup 💄
I picked up the Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips
in the shade Pillow talk.
For those of you who follow her brand, then you may know how popular her Pillow Talk range is. It’s one of the most sought out beauty products in the beauty industry, and I just wanted to finally try a product from the infamous range.
Although I am quite late to bandwagon, it’s better late than never I guess.
The lipstick shade is absolutely beautiful. It’s such a universal shade which would suit all skin tones which is amazing. I would describe it as a rosey mauve.
The last thing you want is to order a lipstick online, only to find out it could be your concealer shade.
Now for Black Friday, N.Duldge memebers were given the opportunity to pick out a full size product of their choice from SpaceNKs chosen products for free if they had spent £50 or above. In my case, I did spend above £50 so I chose the famous Sunday Riley CEO
and turmeric face oil.
Once again, I’ve heard way to many good reviews on this product for me to miss a chance on trying it out, so this was just the perfect opportunity.
I will be following up on a more in-depth review once I've tried the oil out for a while, enough for me to pass a judgement on it.
So, be sure to follow my instagram page @humairascorner
for frequent reviews of skincare/beauty related products.
Side Note : Can I just mention how nicely wrapped my items were ! It literally felt like opening gifts, but they were just from myself !
My Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick and Fresh Rose water came wrapped up like this :
Hope you all enjoyed my haul. In the meantime, DM me any new products you have bought during the sales or just whenever ! I’de love to take a peak and see what’s in everybody’s beauty basket.
