New In: Vedani Botanicals, First Aid Beauty, B. Brushes

Yay, I love Recent Buys posts. Mainly because it's an excuse to go shopping just so I can show you lovelies everything that I have bought. I haven't actually been buying that much beauty stuff but this month I may have gone a bit of crazy. Hint: this may be the first post of many.

Vedani Botanicals No. 21 Light Cleanser
After a desperate call for recommendations on Twitter, the lovely Annabel come to my aid with some suggestions for my incredibly unhappy and congested skin. And guess what? This cleanser has LITERALLY changed my life. I've only been using it for just under a week but I am seriously impressed. It's an oil cleanser with a divine texture and scent. I just two pumps all over a dry face and then remove with one of the Vedani bamboo cloths. I'm left with beautifully clean skin that is plump, soft, and glowing.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
I know what you're thinking... that's not natural! However, my dear reader - the ingredients are actually really good and these bad boys have been doing some serious good work for my skin. This was my second suggestion from Annabel and damn... that girl is good. My skin is the absolute best it has looked for at least the last six months. These glycolic acid pads have been doing wonders for my lingering acne scars. The last step on my skin overhaul is my pesky comedones. But seriously... I've got something for that already. Keep an eye on the blog. I'll also be doing a post soon on why I'm making small (and well-thought out) exceptions when it comes to ingredients.

B. Blush/Contour Brush and Eye Shadow Blending Brush
For those who don't know, B. is Superdrug's own vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand. They recently released a new line of makeup brushes and these two are serious stand outs. They're both perfectly angled for blending - whether that be for eyeshadow or for contour. I actually think the Blush/Contour brush may be my new favourite; it's bloody fantastic. They're pretty cheap and I believe they're still on Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price.
