Cor Silver Soap £15 for 10g
Something unique to start off with, this soap contains silver. Why I hear you ask. Well, silver is known for it's anti-bacterial and healing propities. As well as this the soap also contains marine Collagen, Sericin and Chitosan that claims to ‘add a youthful appearance’, ‘form a film’ and ‘even out skin tone. Sounds like the perfect soap, and after a months use I have to agree! I applied to my skin & left it on for a couple of minutes. Once rinsed off it left my skin firm & clean. It does also moisturise but I still have to apply a lotion afterwards. I use this a couple of times a week because i felt using it daily left my skin a bit dry. Overall it's a good soap, but it is very pricey, so you may have to add it to your Christmas list! More Cor - http://www.corsilver.co.uk/

Ahava Mineral Botanic Lotus & Chestnut £15
Second Ahava product that has made it into my favs. This is also massive & is the biggest shower gel I own. I'm more of a shower person & this is a nice treat for my skin. The gel almost looks pearly & creates a thick lather when massaged in - leaving skin hydrated and clean.
Lavera Sensitive Organic Mineral Eye shadow in Golden Beige £9.50
Love the colour of this eye shadow, such a wearable everyday shade. Pigmentation is very good, doesn't crease,suitable for vegans, stays on & made from minerals! The packaging is lovely too, the shadow is embossed with the Lavera logo & as you can see from the photographs above it comes with a mirror and a compartment underneath which holds a brush.Perfecto. http://www.lavera.co.uk/
I decided to leave my illustrations in there natural form for a change. Not sure if I prefer this! I've just noticed that most of these products above are all quite expensive & I want my blog to cater for a variety of people on different budgets. So next month, I WILL make sure I dedicate it to some beauty bargains :) Got your eye on anything above? Or have you tried it yourself?
