Buy and Try: May | Holy Chic

I genuinely cannot believe that it is May already but hey ho, let’s get with it. I know I am a little late with this post this month but things are hectic so I will cut the jibber jabber and let’s get straight into it.

It is my Buy and Try for the month of May and if you don’t know what my buy and try series is, it is basically where every month I will go out (or over the course of the month) and find products that I really want to try. Then in the next post, I will show you some new things that I picked up to try and review the things that I tried in the month before.

But before you continue reading this, I highly suggest that you check out April's  buy and try post now here so that you can see what the actual products are that I was trying out and also get to know my initial thoughts on the products.

Okay now that hopefully you have done that, I will give you a brief review and my thoughts on everything I tried last month so let’s get started.

1.       The Garnier mineral Invisible 48hr deodorant. This just worked so well for me and I am completely hooked on the whole invisible deodorant thing. It is very light and refreshing and it is almost like you are spraying water under your arms but it comes out white first and then just disappears and lasts all day. Wow! Never thought I could be so passionate about a deodorant.

2.       The Estee Lauder Pure colour eyeshadow palette/trio. This is a really nice simple palette and I really loved using the biscuit colour and the camouflage colour and is definitely going to be a travelling palette for me as it is so compact.

3.       The Simple Soothing Facial Toner. I had high hopes for this for all the right reasons. It gets rid of dirt and oils amazingly, clears my skin well and you can feel that it is gentle on the skin. If you guys ever get a chance to try it, please do.

4.       Nail polish by sinful colours. I mean this is great value for money but since using that nail polish, I have found better ones and I will definably be checking out the rest of the range but it isn’t at the top of my to do list. And it stained one of my nails a little bit yellow so neither good nor bad really.

5.       The Argan Oil Hair Treatment. This has made the world of difference to my hair. Whenever I get outside, my hair becomes a frizz ball but this tames it and keeps the ends really soft and frizz free and omg, just expect a hair routine coming really soon.


Okay so that is the end of the review of all the products I tried for the month of March. Overall, the products I tried were good.  If you have any additional questions, let me know in the comments and I will try and answer them for you ASAP.

Okay so now on to the products I will be trying out for the month of May.

1.       The garnier Micellar cleansing water. I have tried my fair share of this and it seemed only right to try this one. This one seems a lot more like Bioderma packaging wise and it was on offer and after all the buzz surrounding it, I just had to try it.

2.       The garnier caffine eye roll on. After about a year of complaining how expensive this is, I haven’t stopped but I picked it up for £5 in Asda and this really is kind of the last straw for making me look less tired in the morning. If this doesn’t work, I really so give up.

3.       The P.S felt eye liner pen. Everyone was talking about the new makeup line at Primark and I saw a swatch of this and was so intrigued and at only £1, I had to of course pick it up.

4.       The MUA mono eyeshadow in matte brown. I just though this would be good to add definition to my eye look. I may have also picked up the completely wrong colour but I want to experiment more with makeup so I thought this would be the way to go. Plus, it was only £1.

5.       Finally I have this pinky nude lipstick by sunkissed. I do want to experiment more with lip colours and I thought this would be a great lip colour to start off with.

So there you have it, all the products I will be trying out for May. Don’t forget to come back beginning of June to find out my overall thoughts and the new products I will be trying out.
