My Birthday Wishlist

I am a July baby and with my birthday coming up in just over a weeks time (21st) and I am very much Cancerian by trait if you read into horoscopes and their meanings. For example as a water sign, I am at my most calm when in or near to water, I can be moody, I hold a grudge and I can be very indecisive.  All of that aside, one thing I can make my mind up over are beauty products and there are some absolutely stunning products which have caught my attention recently and here they are.

Hello Jo - This is a new brand who are featured on FeelUnique and whom I came across when I was browsing for another product as a gift for a friend. Hello Jo is a new Korean developed caffeine-active beauty brand and I love everything I have read so far, I mean I love everything KBeauty, so this might not be such a surprise.  The one item which has stood out to me is this Speak Up! Bubble Lip Mask (£12.50). 
My Birthday Wishlist
Introducing what is referred to as a worldwide, first to market exclusive, Hello Jo’s enzyme and caffeine fuelled exfoliating lip mask, it is described as being a gel-to-foam formula which is full of bubbly enzymes, antioxidants and Vitamins A and C which break down dead skin cells gently leaving lips renewed and resurfaced. To use, you simply rub it on to your lips and watch the active caffeine and fruit enzymes bubble up to remove dead skin and reveal smooth, renewed lips that are left feeling plumped, nourished and firm. Now I love this idea and am adding it to my basket!

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Endless Bronze & Glow - I mean just look at how absolutely beautiful it is? I don't know if I would ever bring myself to use it because it is just so stunning.
My Birthday Wishlist
Created in collaboration with the gorgeous Chrissy Teigen, this is a limited edition silver compact features two Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed highlighters (in classic ‘Moonstone’ and Chrissy’s iconic ‘Beach Nectar’ shades) and one Sunlit Bronzer (in a brand new ‘Aloha Bronze’ hue). This beauty can be found HERE at Cult Beauty priced at £30.

Lixir - An instagram worthy brand with whom I have been impressed with since discovering them some time ago with Vitamin C Paste and Universal Emulsion.  Today however, it is Soft Clay Rubber which has got my attention.
My Birthday Wishlist
What fascinates me the most is the description which described the products as being both a mask and exfoliant in one. A rub-off formula which combines enzymatic and mechanical exfoliation to leave your skin impeccably clear. It has been developed in the tradition of French facials that include extraction to help with clearing congestion, drawing out impurities and reducing excess sebum to leave skin clear, purified and smooth. I love the idea that for a double hit use for heavily congested skin you apply first as a rub off exfoliant then reapply as a mask. This product from Lixir can be found HERE and it is priced at £28.

Finally we have a product which seems to dominate my Instagram feed from Glow Recipe and that is the Watermelon Sleep Mask. Unsurprisingly, being K-Beauty I am drawn to it and it is pink, so it essentially ticking two boxes, it is described as being a luxuriously ‘bouncy’, lightweight, gel-like sleeping mask which can also be used as a ten-minute mask in daylight hours.
My Birthday Wishlist
It is said that in Korea Watermelon extract is used to soothe irritated and inflamed skin as it floods the complexion with restoring vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids. It also features  hydrating hyaluronic acid and exfoliating, pore-refining alpha-hydroxy acids that get to work whilst you sleep, so when you wake up, not only is your skin soft and smooth, it is also glowing. Priced at £40, this mask can be found HERE at Cult Beauty.

So there you have it, four products that are currently on my radar or in various baskets across the internet waiting to be bought. What has caught your eye recently?
