Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm or Caudalie Beauty Elixir would be gratefully received if it were me. The Caudalie might be a bit more than £10 but not by much.

Claudalie Beauty Elixir is £11. Cheaper online so I'd get that.

RJnomore1 Sat 09-Apr-16 15:50:26

The caudalie is about £30!

Molton brown hand creams are about £10 and very nice.

No it isn't, not the little one. I think it's £11 for 30ml

I have that Caudalie spray and don't know what to do with it?? Whats it meant to do?

ggirl Sat 09-Apr-16 16:09:44

LE shower gel ..now thats something you wouldnt buy yourself..good idea

It's meant to feel like you're doing something like every other beauty product wink grin

If you want stuff that works well... <thinks> Vichy blue serum? That works at intensive moisturising.

Hand cream

Nice hand cream and a nail varnish.

Sally Hanson Poweful Acrylic Gel is great. I think it's about £7.

Oh God please don't buy the caudalie elixir, it's truly vile. Like spraying mosquito repellant on your face

BestIsWest Sat 09-Apr-16 16:43:00

I'd like something from Neal's Yard please.

DollyTwat Sat 09-Apr-16 16:51:05

You could get a beauty box. There are lots online. I've got them from here latestinbeauty.com/ and they've been lovely. You can build a box too

Shame Boots are doing a 3 for 2 on Premium brands because the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors are lovely but about £16.

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Sat 09-Apr-16 16:54:46

Aren't doing.

Mandelinka Sat 09-Apr-16 17:08:44

Kiehl's body lotion or lip product
Good hand cream

Leviticus Sat 09-Apr-16 17:10:28

I use the Caudalie as extra hydration before moisturiser.

It smells nothing like insect repellant but each to their own.

I love Caudalie normally, but that Elixir dries your face up. Never again.

What about Real Techniques Expert Face brush £8.99 Superdrug.

Body shop hemp hand protector. Normally £11.50 but you can get it for £8.50 on eBay.
