COLLECTIVE SKINCARE HAUL | Adore Beauty, BeautyBay and Look Fantastic

As I mentioned in this post, I've done quite a bit of online shopping lately. Too much, if I'm honest. Last month I got a bad virus and then managed to hurt myself quite badly so I had a bit of time off work and I'm quite prone to placing the odd beauty order or two (or ten) from the comfort of my bed when I'm sick and sore. It passes the time, after all.

I placed orders with Adore Beauty and Look Fantastic, as we as quite a few from BeautyBay. Today I'm here to show you what I picked up from Adore Beauty and Look Fantastic plus one of my many BeautyBay orders. I'll post another haul (or two) as my other purchases arrive. 
 To celebrate their birthday, Adore Beauty recently had a 15% off promotion so I took the opportunity to repurchase two skincare loves as well as try a few others bits 'n' pieces. 

The Alpha H Liquid Gold and First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads are both products I quite like an have used in the past with nice results. I wanted a back up of the Liquid Gold as it's not cheap and I knew I'd be running out of Radiance Pads so I decided to restock. While I was there, I checked out the Dermalogica Clear Start line and decided to grab two products, the All Over Toner and their Emergency Spot Fix. I like the feel of facial mists and the added skincare benefits caught my attention in terms of the toner and I love to try new spot treatments. Speaking of spot treatments, I also bought the Bioderma Sebium AI Intensive Care to be used as a spot treatment. 

Murad is a skincare brand that I've heard a lot about so when I saw it was on sale on BeautyBay I decided to try a few products, their Blemish Spot Treatment and Clarifying Wipes for Blemish-Prone Skin. I've been using both these products over the past week or so and I have to say, I'm really enjoying them. I've been breaking out lately and they've helped to clear everything up really nicely! Quite a few bloggers rave about This Works' Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and, even though I have absolutely no trouble sleeping, I gave into temptation and decided to buy it. This product smells absolutely amazing. If you like aromatherapy scents, you will love it!

 Next on my shopping hit list was Look Fantastic. I heard that they had 100 packs of the Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes on sale and, once again, after hearing all the hype surrounding them on YouTube, I decided to give them a shot. I know I say I'm not a huge fan of make up wipes (which is odd considering two different types are featured in this haul) but these are so raved about that I decided it was worth it. I've only tried them once so far so I can't really comment but people are right about one thing, they smell absolutely amazing. Delicious, even. Finally, I also bought the Caudelie Beauty Elixir because, well, when in Rome. Look Fantastic offers free shipping to Australia and this is another product I've always wanted to try so I decided to pick up the small bottle. 

As you can see from this haul, I've gone a little nuts lately. There's so many products that I'm absolutely dying to try out, as well as a few products that were already favourites in my collection. 

What do you think of the skincare products I bought? Have you tried any of them? Do you shop at these online stores? Oh, and let me know if there's anything you'd like to see reviewed!


  1. The Murad products you mentioned sound very interesting, and as I'm always struggling with breakouts, I'd love to see a review! I've never heard of a spray that helps you sleep, sounds a bit gimmicky to me, but if it smells nice that must be why it works! xD

    1. Sheri, the Murad products have been really nice so far. I'm planning on reviewing them next month so stay tuned. Just know they've helped with my post hospital breakout. I totally agree about the sleep spray. It's a total gimmick but hey, they sucked me in! :P x

  2. Lovely haul - I'm so jealous of all the new things! I can't wait to read your reviews, especially on the spot treatments. I have been really enjoying the facial radiance pads as well!

  6. Great haul! I love online shopping at Adore Beauty and BeautyBay but I've never tried Look Fantastic before. I love the Alpha H Liquid, such a great product for treating acne scars. I would love to hear how you find the Murad and Dermalogica products, I'm always looking for something for when my skin decides to start a riot!
