What We’re Buying With ESCENTUAL20

ESCENTUAL20 only comes around a few times a year. Judging by our social following, it’s something our customers hang on for, month after month. But do we blame them? Absolutely not. Everyone loves a beauty bargain, especially our Escentual team…

 

If you’re into skincare…

Caudalie Grape Water Spray

Caudalie Grape Water Spray

Caudalie’s Grape Water is one of those products that I purchase over and over again because it’s so good. It’s a staple in my beauty routine, and although it’s mainly just grape water in a can, it makes such a difference to my skin. I’ve noticed since introducing it into my daily routine; my sensitive skin feels softer, smoother and less red. I apply it straight after cleansing and wait a few moments for it to dry on my face before going in with my skincare products. It’s also great to use as a refreshing mist throughout the day; I keep a mini bottle on my desk! And it has moisturising and soothing qualities that make it ideal to use on patches of eczema or sunburn. I always make sure I stock up during ESCENTUAL20 so that I’m never without it!

Viktor & Rolf BONBON Eau de Parfum Spray

Viktor & Rolf BONBON Eau de Parfum Spray

My first encounter with Bonbon was all thanks to an ex-boyfriend. Even though that relationship didn’t exactly stand the test of time, my love affair with Bonbon has.

I hold my hands up; I’m a gourmand fragrance lover through and through. Some may say they are unsophisticated, but I disagree. By no means childish or too girly, this candy-sweet scent is distinctly sexy and alluring. Initially, I was drawn in with pure sweetness from fruity accords, but over time, the sticky dry down of rich caramel is what’s stolen my heart.

I’ve tried experimenting. Buying everything from citrus to bold white florals, but nothing comes close to Bonbon. Its sweet aroma is one that I come back to time and time again. This perfume sits close to the skin, and has good longevity, and isn’t too sweet to wear in the office; I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn it, and days later can still smell it on my jacket.

 

If you love new makeup…

 GUERLAIN Rouge G Rosy Nude Lipstick Case

GUERLAIN Rouge G Rosy Nude Lipstick Case

Rouge G has fast become my everything, and all of my friends’ favourite thing to steal. Since GUERLAIN relaunched Rouge G, I’ve become equally obsessed with collecting the cases, just as I do the lipsticks. What can I say? It’s become a pretty luxe habit.

I’ve got my go-to with Perfect Black, a pop of colour with Nomad Queen and now I need a chic neutral to go with my new Rouge G Matte in 01 Light Nude. So with ESCENTUAL20, I’ll be adding the Rosy Nude case to my collection. It’s not every day a lipstick makes you feel like a queen, and Rouge G is worth every penny and more – now is the time to indulge my collecting addiction while there’s 20% off.

Decleor Green Mandarin Essential Oils Sun-Kissed Cream

Decleor Green Mandarin Essential Oils Sun-Kissed Cream

I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that summer is nearly over. I’ve said goodbye to all my favourite dresses and the sunshine, but there’s one thing I’m not ready to let go of just yet: my glow! There’s nothing better than sunkissed skin, that’s why I’m making the most of ESCENTUAL20 by stocking up on the Decleor Sunkissed Cream.

On the face of it, this may look like ‘just’ a tinted moisturiser, but it’s much more than that. What makes it so unique is a glow-boosting cocktail of essential oils, hyaluronic acid, and my favourite, beta carotene. The beta carotene is what provides the bronze tint; the star benefit if you ask me. It’s so pigmented that I prefer using this day cream over foundation nowadays. If you’re in a good place with your skin and want radiance and hydration from your base, this could be your new alternative foundation too. My skin has never looked healthier since I made the switch.
