BeautyBay Haul

It feels like forever since I last did a haul post ( in fact it wasn't that long ago! lol), so I decided to rectify this and order a few bits from BeautyBay. I was after something to sort out my skin because I have been having trouble with breakout and nothing I do seems to work. I've heard that the Mario Badescu range was really good especially the spot treatments.

I picked up two spot treatments, the first being the Drying Lotion (£14.50) which is a two phase liquid which you leave un-shaken containing Salicylic Acid, Calamine and Zinc. You use it by placing a cotton bud into the bottle, all the way to the bottom so it picks up the pink sediment, this then is placed on the affected areas and is meant to dry them out while balancing oil control. This is definitely an over night treatment as it leaves a pink/white film over the spot.
To go along with the drying lotion I wanted something that I could use during the day and the Drying Cream (£11.95)sounded really good. It contains Aloe so is gentle and can be used on erupted pimples and under the surface spots to dry them up and help conceal them throughout the day. The cream dries clear and neutralises the redness making them less visible so perfect to use during the day.... I hope! lol

I was running low on my La Roche Posay Serozinc and wanted something similar that was hydrating to replace it. The Facial Spray (£6.95) contains Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater which can be used as a toner or to refresh the skin, adding hydration as well as doubling up as a setting spray. This sounded perfect and great now we are coming into the warmer weather so I can cool down with the refreshing spray.

I also received two samples with my purchase and they were the Seaweed Cleansing Soap and Lotion. The Seaweed Cleansing Soap (full size £11.95) is said to gently cleanse, exfoliate and remove make up. Its suitable for sensitive skin and is anti-inflammatory to sooth and moisturise the skin while its being cleaned. The Seaweed Cleansing Lotion (full size £14.95) is mild and non drying, it sooths and disinfects the skin while nourishing and unclogging pores and oil debris.
I've been using both of these and I must say I really like them already and in fact have been pleased with everything I've purchased from the range so far. Expect a full review very soon.
The last purchase was a total impulse buy and one influenced by Anna from Vivanna Does Make Up. It is of course the Louise Young LY34 Super Foundation Brush (£24.00). I wasn't even in the market to buy a new foundation brush as I do love my real techniques buffing brush but this one seemed so unique to any that I've tried before. On first inspection I can say it's possibly the softest god damn brush I have ever felt and you can also expect a full review very soon!

So there is my recent haul. Have you tried anything that's been featured above?
