On Sunday I had the pleasure of hanging out with Segun from LotionsPotionsandMe who was hosted a My Showcase party led by skincare guru Dija from Dija’s World. My Showcase brings independent hair, skin, makeup and fragrance brands into your home. Dija provides detail about how My Showcase works here.
When I walked into Segun’s home, I saw this…
… and the first thing out of my mouth was…’it’s like Space NK in your home’
This was my kind of party – a glorious edit of skincare chosen by Dija which included some favourite like Antonia Burrell and S5, great company and delicious sustenance provided by Segun. I took a few pictures.
I did not order anything on Sunday because I was having too much fun, painting my nails (have a look at my Instagram page) but Dija provided me with the My Showcase Beauty Book which lists the all the brands that feature in My Showcase. After four solid hours studying it I have got my shortlist.
Face Stockholm Varnish in Purple – I tried it on the night and loved it. I am already a fan of Face Stockholm Polishes so this is a no brainer for me.
s5 Replenish Serum – I am a huge fan of facial oils and a big fan of the S5 range (organic cosmeceuticals – what’s not to love?) the Replenish Serum is full of rose hip, argan and sea buckthorn oil. I am looking forward to adding this to my night cream to make ramp up the level of nourishment and also to slathering my face in this oil when I am in the bath. Lovely.
Ruth Mastenbroek Scented Candle – I covered myself in this fragrance at the showcase, and the mister loved it, however have recently made a few fragrance purchases so I am on a strict one in, one out regime for the next few months. Not the case with candles however, (whaaaaaat?) so I will scent the bedroom (ahem) with this candle until I finish one of my perfumes.
Orba Originals Goats Milk Skin Soother – this one is going into my handbag. Rich but not greasy, soft fragrance and full of goodness.
Sage La Moonstone Roll On Oil – a gorgeous whiff of white flowers in an oil, which develops as it warms up on the skin, another one for the handbag.
Items on my long list included – T Le Clerc Nail Enamel in Rouge Theophile – I tried this colour and was very impressed with the formula and the colour. Antonia Burrell Forest Dew Skin Conditioner – I love it and mine has just finished. Neom Home Candle (Invigorate) – this candle needs no introduction!
