I Want To Try... | Wishlist 1

This is the first of the 'Wishlist' posts that I've decided I'm going to do on a monthly basis, which are going to include things that I'd like to try (and probably don't need) but haven't got around to yet. All the different bits will range from makeup, fashion, skincare and lifestyle so I think there will always be a good variety, and I will be posting about them in more detail if/when I buy them to let you know what my thoughts were. 

1.  Daniel Sandler | Watercolour Fluid Blusher - I've only heard good things about this and it's always been an intriguing product to me. It's said to look extremely natural and blends into cheeks with ease. I'm currently loving cream blushes but I still really want to try this as it seems like nothing I've ever used before.
2.  Elemis | Papaya Enzyme Peel - I've never actually used a peeling mask before, I was always far too scared to risk it irritating my sensitive skin. Now that my skin has calmed down and the teenage skin days are (hopefully) in the past, it seems to be a lot more forgiving of different products and Elemis seems to be one that I can trust. This Papaya enzyme peel is said to be great for those with sensitive skin who haven't really used anything like this before, and I really want to try it as my mum loves peeling masks similar to this one and I can always tell it makes such a difference to her skin. 
3.  Grafea | Pink & white leather backpack - This one is probably the most random, but aside from the inevitable oversized school bags that were definitely always bigger than myself, I've never actually owned a backpack, and I don't really know why because I think they look really cool. This one may be a bit pricey but when it comes to bags, unless they are casual bags that I buy to just have on an everyday basis, I see them as an investment that I can use for a long time. Plus look at just how pretty it is.
4.  Jouer Cosmetics | Matte Moisture Tint - I am a sucker for trying everything on the hunt for the perfect base, wether or not the perfect base exists is another question, but until then this matte moisture tint is on the list as a light base which mattifies but doesn't hide the natural dewiness of the skin - especially tempting in this hot weather! 
5.  Kevin Aucoin | The Sculpting Powder - I've read countless reviews praising this sculpting powder and I'm questioning wether I'm the only person that hasn't actually tried this, but I guess I've always owned a sculpting powder/bronzer that I've been happy with so I never really thought I needed to try it. I've now come to the end of my current one so I thought it was the perfect time to do so and maybe I'll have a new favourite! 
6.  Brow Wiz | Anastasia Beverly Hills - I'm pretty sure I don't really need to explain this one because it's pretty much what every other beauty blogger is talking/raving about and have been for a while. I have pretty unruly brows and they are pretty much the bane of my mornings so I really have no reason not to try it out! 

Okay now I'll get off Cult Beauty and actually post this. Do you guys have any of these on your wishlists? and if you have wishlists of your own then do link me to them below!

YouBeauty Box | CEW Limited Edition

The idea of receiving a box full of beauty must-haves is a winning idea for any girl, which is exactly why I had to snap up this limited edition YouBeauty Box as soon as I saw it. Seeing GlamGlow, Philip Kingsley and Elemis all in one box with lots of other goodies meant that it was a no-brainer, especially when it cost just £16.95. So let's talk through the products, with more detailed posts coming up on the blog once I've tried everything out!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 40ml (£8) 
This is a hair product I'm sure most of you have heard of, as it is seen as a miracle product for so many bloggers that I've spoken to about it in twitter chats! It is a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment which promises to increase the elasticity of hair, avoiding breakage and damage, leading to stronger healthier hair after just one use. If all that is true then I will be a happy lady!

Manuka Doctor Mini Hero Kit (£12.99)
This little kit contains 3 sample tubes of some of their best products. The Rejuvenating Face Mask contains purified bee venom, Manuka honey and Avocado oil amongst other ingredients in order to try and improve collagen growth and help with lines and wrinkles. The ApiRefine Targeted Wrinkle Filler uses Purified bee venom and manuka honey to try and increase the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Finally, the ApiClear Skin Treatment Serum helps to relieve and calm skin which is prone to blemishes.

L'occitane Almond Milk Concentrate 50ml (£11)
Rated the best treatment for cellulite in 2014, this nourishing body cream includes a blend of proteins which claims to provide skin with the support it needs when collagen levels decrease and soothes irritated skin.

GlamGlow Youthmud 15g (£50 for 50g)
This treatment mask claims to leave you with radiant and glowing skin after 10 minutes, and is suitable for all skin types and helps a multitude of skin concerns - I'll hold it to that!

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 15ml (£28)
This cream is one that I'm very excited about even though it is designed as an anti-ageing product, but I know it is one that my mum has been wanting to try for a while but thinks it's ridiculous to spend so much on a cream (the normal sizes can cost up to £160). Hopefully this 15ml is enough to show whether a full size purchase is worth it or not! It claims 78% wrinkle reduction and a 45% increase in moisture levels. I think it has a lot to live up to with those claims but we'll see how it goes. 

Dr Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Treatment Serum 100ml (£14.99)
This serum is designed to add shine, eliminate frizz and detangle your locks. The first thing I noticed about it was the fact that I actually liked the smell, which is a complete rarity when it comes to serums or hair protectors - it is patchouli, cinnamon and rosewood scented. Unlike most of the other products, I actually applied this product and found that my hair looked instantly less frizzy (somewhat of a miracle considering I had attacked it by trying to brush it whilst doing 10 other things) and had a lovely shine to it as well. I used it on dry hair, but I will let you guys know how it works for me when I use it after shampooing and conditioning. 

Caudalie Divine Legs - Sachet 
This tinted body lotion promises a sunkissed look without the sun, and that is much more natural looking than self-tan. I'll be putting that to the test and I really hope it works because I've been looking for a great tinted lotion that doesn't actually leave any hint of 'fake tan'. 

Overall I'm really happy with the contents of this box and there is not one product that I'm not excited to try! As mentioned above I will be posting back with more detailed reviews after I have properly tried the products. Let me know if you have tried any of them and what I can expect!
