Escentual French Pharmacy Sale
Every few months, escentual.com have a 1/3 off French pharmacy sale and every single time I make an order. Or two. I have spoken at length about my love for French skincare products and I don’t get over to France enough to stock up on bits and bobs so these sales are amazing. I’ve picked my top 8 products from the sale:
If you’re a regular reader of my blog you will know of my love for French skincare. My parents live in France and everytime I go over there I stock up on various products and rely on them to keep my skin happy and healthy. I don’t know what it is about French skincare but I find it so much better for my sensitive and picky skin.
Kiko 372 Nude Nail Varnish
This is another of the polishes I got in the Kiko sale in France (2.50 Euro per polish… it would’ve been rude not to take advantage of that so I got loads!)
Kiko 372 Nude nail varnish is a creamy blush coloured polish with more than a hint of grey (and regular readers will know how I feel about grey!) I really like this barely-there polish, it is so classy without being boring and will go with absolutely any outfit.
This nail varnish needed 2 fairly thick coats to get full coverage, but Kiko polishes always apply and dry very well so that wasn’t a problem. This is shown topped with Seche Vite.

Model’s Own ‘Utopia’
Can we take a moment to appreciate just how beautiful Model’s Own ‘Utopia’ is? MY GOD. I originally bought this polish when Model’s Own were having their amazing sale months ago (you need to watch out for those as you can get some serious bargains) and I am really regretting not trying out this polish until now. It is so incredibly beautiful and I have wasted so much time when I could have been wearing it. *kicks self*
This is a soft, pale lilac-grey creme polish. It only needed two coats and this is topped with Seche Vite.
Jan 2016 EDIT: I have just found out from Model’s Own that this shade is now discontinued *wails*. So gutted. This is such an incredible shade and became one of my ;go-to’ colours when I couldnt decide what to wear. It went with everything and just looked really classy and chic on the nails. LUCKILY it reminds me a lot of OPI’s ‘Steady As She Rose‘, which is still available. PHEW.
