1. Rodial Vitamin C Drops
£80 for 28ml
If you’ve read my blog for a while now, then you already know how much I love vitamin C. Tbh, I love any product that gives my skin added radiance. But vitamin C has a special place in my skincare routine. So, I know a good vitamin C product when I try one!
And the Rodial Vitamin C Drops is definitely a keeper.
This moisturising serum immediately gives my skin a healthy glow. If my skin is looking a bit lacklustre, then a few drops of this luxurious serum instantly revitalise my skin. The lightweight nourishing texture also adds some welcome hydration to my skincare routine, without the horrible stickiness or greasiness.

This gorgeous vitamin C serum works well with the rest of my routine, and I love how it makes my skin look luminous and healthy.
2. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
£49 for 10g
I feel like I mention Charlotte Tilbury a lot on my blog and Insta. But I seriously love Charlotte Tilbury makeup products.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow is no exception. This contour and highlighter palette is a dream to work with.
The powders are finely milled, so they’re lightweight and buttery soft. But, most importantly, they never look or feel cakey on the skin. Some powder products can make skin look crepey, as the powder sinks into fine lines and texture and emphasises them. Not the vibe we want!
However, this contour and highlighter melt into the skin effortlessly for a soft, smooth and poreless finish.
The contour is a wonderful cool-neutral shade. It’s a great sculpting shade as it’s neither too orange nor too ashy, so it looks like an authentic shadow. Although this initially provides a very natural finish, you can easily build the contour up for a more dramatic, sculpted look. So, it’s very versatile. If you build up the contour for added depth, the powder still feels lightweight and soft on the skin.
The highlighter is a light champagne gold shade, which is super flattering. Again, not too warm or too cool, so it works well for just about any makeup look. The highlighter is finely milled, so the way it catches the light is very iridescent and glowy, without being chunky or glittery. It’s truly reflective, so I’m not left with a block of highlighter on my cheekbones, which I hate.

I love using the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow. The results are amazing every time.
3. RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate and Plump Eye Cream
£24.99 for 15ml
If you want an eye cream that actually does something, then you need to check out the RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate and Plump Eye Cream.
This eye cream does wonders for hydrating and smoothing my eyes. After applying this to my under eyes and in the crease of my eyelids, my skin feels immediately soft and moisturised. It has a cooling and refreshing sensation, which I love. It’s perfect for when I’m feeling tired and like my skin needs a bit of extra support.
While I don’t think this eye cream helps with puffiness or dark circles, it definitely has a smoothing and hydrating effect. It’s revitalising in the mornings when I’m in serious need of coffee. And this lack of coffee shows in my under-eye area. So I appreciate the cooling feeling and extra smoothness.

A lovely eye cream for soft, refreshed skin.
4. Sebeiti Cosmetics Powder Blush Sun Charm 03
£17.97 for 6g
I’m a sucker for a good blush, and the Sebeiti Cosmetics Powder Blush Sun Charm 03 has so many great attributes.
This pigmented blusher requires the lightest of taps in the pan for intense colour payoff. So, you don’t need much product for a healthy pop of colour across your cheeks and temples. But, despite the strong pigmentation, this blusher is still easy to build and blend. You can place the colour exactly where you want it.
The blusher has a soft matte finish. I like it, especially if I want to go for a less dewy base.
But my favourite thing about this blusher is the shade. It’s this gorgeous natural peach shade, which just works with every makeup look. You can see it in my Insta makeup look below:
I also got a liquid lipstick and shimmer lilac eyeshadow from Sebeiti Cosmetics to try recently. Check out my full review here.

I love this blusher. It really exceeded my expectations.
5. Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm
£19.18 for 100ml
I’m a cleansing balm obsessive. I honestly love using a cleansing balm every night. The Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm is such a fantastic choice.
This deeply nourishing thicc cleansing balm leaves my skin feeling super hydrated and moisturised and never stripped. It takes away dirt, makeup and grease with ease. Honestly, it’ll take off a full face of glam makeup successfully with hardly any effort. The way it melts into the skin is divine; it’s super satisfying to use. Soft, heavenly and rich.
But my absolute favourite thing about the Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm is the addictive apricot scent. It smells good enough to eat! It adds a luxe, high-end experience to my night-time cleansing routine, all for a pretty reasonable price!
Rating: 4.5 stars
This is a great, effective cleansing balm that makes my skin feel wonderfully soft.
