Beauty wishlist / online basket

I am trying to use up as many products as I can before buying new ones, but my current feelunique basket is full of skincare/body care and hair care items and I am really tempted to click 'proceed to checkout' right now :) I actually need a new exfoliating toner and emergency face wipes, so I will have to place a cheeky order this weekend anyway, but I am not sure if my budget allows me to buy all of the product mentioned in this post :)

1.Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes (10, £6.00) - Really pricey, but absolutely amazing! I only buy them on offer and you currently get 3 for 2. I always buy the smaller packs, as I don't use face wipes enough to buy 3 packs of 30. These are gentle, smell incredible and don't leave my skin feeling tight and dry. 

2.First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads (60 pads, £20.50) - I need a new exfoliating toner, but these sound really good and one pack would last me for 2 months. Totally fuss free and without any unnecessary nasties.

3.Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm (100ml, £34.00) - I just finished my 2nd (or 3rd) jar of this stuff and I just have to repurchase. It is my favourite cleansing balm and I can't recommend it enough. My skin loves it, but my bank account hates it. It is worth the price tag though and one tub lasts me for 4-6 months.

4.Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Cream Mask (100ml, £32.50) - I love Jurlique's  rose range and this face mask sounds perfect. It is meant combat dullness and dryness, provide luminosity and hydration.

5.Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator (50ml, £30.60) - sometimes I feel like my skin needs a little bit more exfoliation and this treatment really appeals to me. It is meant to be used 2-3 times a week to help revitalise and smooth skin’s appearance. I am not sure how strong it is though. If it's the same as my exfoliating toners (Clarins and REN), I would rather buy one of them. Have you tried it?

6.Fushi Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (250g, £8.05)- I use coconut oil for cooking, but I really want to start using it more for beauty purposes. The Fushi one seems reasonably priced and I like the simple packaging.

7.Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Strong Roots Spray (150ml, £3.79)- Another coconut product :) I want to try this spray to see if it works on my itchy scalp, as it gets easily irritated with dry shampoo and volumising sprays. I normally use the Philip Kingsley Scalp Toner, but it is quite pricey and I want to find a cheaper alternative.

8.Xen-Tan Dark Lotion (236ml, £24.45) - My fake tan drawer is full to the brim, but I keep repurchasing Xen-Tan Dark Lotion and Moroccan Tan. I just love them and find them very hydrating. I use (and like) other brands too, but this has been my go to fake tan for over 6 years and I always have a bottle in my stash.

What's on your wishlist or in your online basket at the moment? 



  1. I really want to try the First Aid pads they seem really good, the brands meant to be really good for sensitive skin too so I'm guessing it'll be great at exfoliation but not to much of sensitive skin. My beauty wish list is far to long for my own good, I'm trying to be good and use up what I have but the temptation is pretty hard haha x

  2. Great wishlist! I reaaally need a make-up remover and a nail polish top coat!

  3. The First Aid pads and the Palmers Coconut Oil Formula Strong Roots Spray has be intriqued! My scalp gets itchy too! If you get it keep us updated on it, please!

  4. That is one fabulous list,Emma Hardie also sits in my basket x

  5. I had no idea Palmer's made a coconut spray! I think I found something to add to my wish list!

  6. Some great brand selectin such as Jurlique or Fushi :-) Can't go wrong with those.

  7. I just started using coconut oil as a night moisturiser and it has improved my skin so much! Def recommend <3

  8. I want the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm so much! I think I'll wait for it to be on offer though, it's a bit pricey.

    Try putting coconut oil under your eyes before bed, works wonders.
