New beauty products I've been sent to try out - part 2 | Gifted

It's no secret that bloggers and 'influencers' get sent products for free to try out. And I am very thankful to 
be one of those people that brands trust and value my opinion enough to send me products to test and try 
as well as share with my audience. A few months ago I did a post like this, sharing the new in beauty 
products I've been sent to try out, and it was so well received that I decided to do a part 2. I am beyond 
thankful and am so lucky to be in this position, it doesn't go at all unnoticed. 

Since my last post, in February, Tarte have been so incredible and sent over even more parcels full of 
makeup and skincare for me to try. I still can't believe that such a huge brand would want to work with me 
and they are one of my new favourite beauty brands, as every product I have tried is incredible! Some of 

My favourite, which took me by surprise, is the breezy cream bronzer. I've never gotten along with 
cream products before as they usually move around my foundation and look muddy. However this sits 
beautifully on top of my base, blends out effortlessly and give a flawless finish. This has made me want
 to try out more cream products, especially for the summer. 

On the topic of cream products, Pixi recently sent their new on the glow blush sticks and they are perfect. 
These are packed with antioxidants which means they are hydrating and easy to blend on the cheeks as 
well as having amazing pigmentation. Not only can you use these on your cheeks but they can also be 
worn the lips to tie together the whole look. So far they only have 3 shades available, my favourite is 
juicy, however they suit any and all skin tones.

Dermalogica have had a few new launches recently which I always love to test and try out. The melting 
moisture masque is my favourite as it is incredibly hydrating as it turns from an oil to a balm to deeply 
penetrate the skin to nourish and rehydrate. I have also enjoyed using the antioxidant hydramist, as it is 
super refreshing for the summer heat. I am yet to try the smart response serum (as I already have too many 
serums on the go) but I look forward to giving it a go, as Dermalogica skincare never disappoints. 

As well as receiving some skincare from Dermalogica I was lucky enough to be sent the new glycol 
exfoliating toner from Good Molecules. Other than serums, my next favourite product is a toner. I love to 
remove excess dead skin cells whilst brightening and refreshing my skin. Since I have normal to dry skin, 
my skin loves a good toner and this is just that! It's been the perfect addition to my skincare routine. 

At the beginning of every month I receive a new Roccabox and the last few months haven't disappointed. 
Their boxes have been full of both previously featured brands and new brands I've never heard off, as well 
as having a wide price range. Brands such as Illamasqua, Probiotic by Doctors Formula and Bella Pierre 
have been featured in the past few months box! See what I got in my April, May, June, July and August 
Roccabox here. You can also use my code 'LEA20' for 20% off your entire order. 

I was also lucky enough to try some products from some new brands this month. Bee Good sent over their 
multi purpose necta-perfecta natural honey mask and Alya Skin sent their world famous Australian pink 
clay mask. Both products are beyond amazing and I have loved using them as a treat for my skin.

I am beyond grateful to each brand for giving me the opportunity to work with them and try
out their incredible products. It never goes unnoticed and I will forever be thankful for this. 


All of these products were gifted to me however this post is not sponsored and all opinions are my own. See disclaimer page for further information.
