The highlight for me was an early morning trip to the East coast of the island to swim with wild dolphins. The mountainous landscape provided a beautifully picturesque backdrop for our solo boat, journeying into Tamarind Bay to find the dolphins.
I swam amongst them in the warm early morning sea. Bottle nose and spinners, adults and calves. It was truly magical, spiritual and very moving. Something I will never forget.
I am very grateful to her for her kindness and welcome to Mauritius. I loved the island and hope to return one day.
It was a great consolation returning to Beauty Month here at QVC… So many fantastic brands and new products to try!
I like it so much I have found myself putting it on in the evening, even when I don't need sun factor, just because I love the shimmer it gives the skin, so much!
I also tried the Tinted Face SPF30, which was fantastic and meant I could go make-up free, as well as an old favourite for me, the easy to apply Ultrasun Sport and After Sun - in this kit it comes with Face SPF30 too.
I didn't have the Daily UV Hair Protector in time to take with me, but will be trying that out now the sun has appeared here in London!
Benefit is a brand I always reach for when I want to gift make-up to friends. It has beautiful packaging, fun messages and a feel good factor to all the products. It also delivers great results which are proven by many, being award-winning in the industry.
I have been trying a new eyeliner/remover combination. They're Real Push-up Liner is a unique pen style applicator. Makes drawing the line really easy and really opens the eye brilliantly, to make your eyes look huge.
I know their mascara in the same range is fantastic, so as a combination I'm sure would be beautiful. If you need a gentle but really effective waterproof remover I've been trying They're Real Remover too, which works a treat. I will never give up or deviate from my Gatineau Floracil eye make-up remover but when you need the extra power, the Benefit They're Real Remover has to be worth trying.
I've also had the pleasure of trying these Studio 10 kits on a few recent evenings out. Beautiful textures, gorgeous glow to the blusher, and the highlighter and shader do all the work for you if you follow where they say put it… and with the professional brushes, you can't go wrong… gorgeous!
Anyway, I wish you all happy sunny days wherever possible. Look forward to hearing from you – Are you enjoying Beauty Month? And do you have any holiday plans this summer …?
Much Love, Sara x
