I recently bought the horizontal planner from Erin Condren so I thought I'd film an unboxing

You know how you find a product that you never want to stop using because of how great it is?
This is the one.
Before I got this beauty, I used drugstore brands that were half the price but they didn't work quite as well.
Eventually, my skin got used to them and it got so dry that it started to flake and I got random blotches of dryness.
Then for my birthday (if I remember correctly) my mum got me this little thing as a gift and I kid you not but after applying it for two days, the blotches went away and so did my flakiness.
Granted, it's fairly pricey at £50, but if you have really dry skin or you're looking for a higher end gift for someone with dry skin, I absolutely recommend this product.

Yep...I've done it again. I've stocked up on a crap load of goodies and I want to share them with you in case you may be interested in trying these out.
You can kind of tell what these things are because they're all on the labels, haha. This post was in my drafts for months and I never posted (?????)
If you guys want a food review on any of these or the names or anything let me know in the comments!
Hi there! Long time no blog...
Don't hate me. I have phases with things, and apparently my blogging phase had faded. However, I started going through Zoe's (Zoella) blog and I remembered that I also run a blog. Good one, dummy.
So here it is. My perfume collection.
Mind you, this is only half of it, because I have a whole bunch of others I just never wear anymore or liked when I bought and then put away because I realised I actually disliked the scent (why do I do this?).
Lets start from the front row.
This is my holy trinity.
Lady Million: This is a sweet and fresh daytime smell that is so unique I've never smelt one like it, even though that tends to be the case with most perfumes. This is one I pretty much wear on a daily basis in the mornings and afternoons, as it is a really fresh and really nice scent for daytime, but can be doubled up as a nighttime perfume.
Katy Perry - Killer Queen: Now this one may be bit of a controversial one because it's a) a celebrity perfume or b) it's very sweet. Personally, I love love love this one. There's something about the candy-smelling sweetness that makes it one of my favourites. This one I wear randomly whenever I want to, but it's very sweet so I have to be careful not to spray too much. It's so nice, though. Definitely one of my favourites.
Gucci Guilty: This is the most unique smelling perfume ever. It's perfect for nighttime and really good for dates or if you're just going out on a girl's night out. It's sweet but it's also very classy and kind of spells a tad spicy? (I'm so good at scent descriptions). I really don't know the notes of this perfume but it's very unique and I definitely recommend you go sniff this one out.
These are my sweeties
Beyonce - Heat Rush: Even though this one can smell a tiny bit fresh, it's mostly quite fruity and really summery. I have trouble wearing this one during the winter, but it's still so nice and I definitely would give this one a chance.
Victoria's Secret - Amber Romance: This came in a set along with the one next to it. It's a very overpoweringly sweet smell, but I like putting this in my purse because it's really compact or just spraying it when I'm at home (I like smelling nice at all times).
Victoria's Secret - Pure Seduction: If I could afford to buy the whole VS line in this scent, I would. My goodness it's so so so so so nice! It's floral and sweet and so so nice. It's really fresh, too, and I love putting this on if I'm having a pamper night and I just come out of the shower because it makes me feel very girly. Thank you Elle for this one! (AllThatGlitters21)
Victoria's Secret - Incredible: A while ago I had bought this huge set of baby perfumes and this was one of my favourites. This one is also very sweet as a lot of VS scents tend to be, but it's also quite fresh and I like spraying this around my room, hehe. It was on sale when I went to Dubai, which is when I bought it and I really like it.
Armani Code: This is a perfume that comes with many memories, and it reminds me of my aunt because she still uses it. I bought it for more of a sentimental reason than a utilitarian one because I overused it years ago so I've gone off the smell a bit but it's still really nice. It's definitely a fresh and sophisticated smell, hence the caption, and I think a lot of older women would enjoy this one, as it's also my mum's and aunt's favourite.
Daisy by Marc Jacobs: Marc Jacobs has a lot of daisy ones, but this is (obviously) the pale pink one. It's also more fresh than his black and white one. My mum has the black one and it's much sweeter than this one is. Even though you can smell the hints of the previous versions, you can also see how much stronger this one is. If you like the Daisy line, I'd recommend giving this a whiff to see if you like it (I know a lot of people who do). I love using this one on nights where I feel like one classy gal. This is actually my favourite springtime smell :)
Balenciaga - Florabotanica: Not going to lie, the main reason I bought this one (actually I made my dad buy it for me) is because Kristen Stewart was the face for this perfume. Yep. I love me some Kristen. The smell is very classic and it could be a really nice signature perfume for someone. I feel like people who'd like Chanel No.5 would maybe like this one? Kind of smells a tad like baby powder...is it just me? But I loved this during the winter time. Smells quite whimsical.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know if you want to see my unused perfumes, too, because there's almost as many of those as there are used ones, haha. Until next time!

So...here it is.
Unfortunately, I threw away the box ages ago because this product has literally lasted me for months even though I use it every single day, which is honestly very impressive to me.
I bought it at a local pharmacy, and I don't think it was too pricey considering this was 16 euros, whereas the new moisturiser I got was over twice the price. Here's a link to where you can buy it online.
I haven't used too many varying moisturisers, so I don't know if I'm really able to judge this product properly, considering the only other moisturiser I used was this blue clean & clear one. I can, however, definitely say that this was better than the clean & clear.
It really did work. I have very dry skin that feels like it's going to crack if I don't apply any moisturiser, so having this to help (especially after showers, which is when I use my scrub) was a godsend.
The only problem I found was that it takes a tiny bit of time so set in, so I think that if you're in a hurry and need to apply your foundation literally a millisecond after your moisturiser, maybe avoid getting the Olivolio one.
Overall, I do recommend this if you have dry skin. It was a lifesaver in the winter and definitely followed the 24 hour moisturising promise.
I bought a new one from Biotherm which is a hydrating gel for normal skin, and it has a much lighter consistency and absorbed immediately when I applied it, so after I use it for a bit, I'll do a review on that as well.
Until next time!
P.S. post some of your recommendations for moisturisers below!
