Discovering New Beauty Brands & Products With Notino

notino uk reviews

Over the years I've discovered so many brilliant beauty brands and products, ones that I would never have stumbled across myself on my own and for that reason, I'm always up for trying new things when it comes to skincare, makeup and more. The team at Notino very kindly sent over a bundle of beauty products for me to try and to review and that's exactly what I'll be showing you in today's post.

So here's what I received from Notino;

exfoliating sheet masks

I was very excited to see this exfoliating sheet mask from NaturBeauty in my parcel, as exfoliating regularly is certainly something that I need to start taking more seriously, especially in the Winter months. Doing it in a sheet mask form would be so handy and hopefully hassle free so I'm very excited to try this out this weekend.

When I had a scroll through the Notino site I was instantly intrigued by the bargain makeup brushes from Brush Art so was very happy to see one in my parcel. It's definitely a basic brush but for the price and the fact that even they call it basic, I wasn't expecting miracles or an insanely luxury brush. It'll come in handy for something, for sure.

Mixa are a brand that I've been keen to try for a while now after seeing them appear on my Instagram feed following their UK launch earlier in the year. I've found that some micellar waters can been incredibly drying on my skin or can leave me with tight or stingy eyes. If you saw the recent series of Supershoppers, you will have seen me talk about just that but this time on the TV instead of solely on my blog. I've definitely found a new favourite in this anti-dryness formula and this is exactly what I mean about discovering brilliant new beauty brands and products as a result of writing this very blog. Notino also sent over Avene's Cleanance Micellar Water which is great for oily and blemish prone skin. I've been meaning to try more from Avene so this has definitely given me the push to do so.

I'd never heard of Elancyl Paris before but was happy to put this toning shower gel to the test and I've been enjoying using it the past few weeks. I don't tend to spend more than a £1 on shower gel just because all I'm really looking for it to do is the bare minimum; aka. to clean me. If it smells like candy floss or strawberries, well that's an added bonus. Flos Lek are another brand that I hadn't heard of before but my Mum has been happy to give this a try and will of course, report back. Let me know if you'd like another 'my Mum's picks' kind of blog post, like she wrote back in 2016.

Notino also sent over a few travel sizes in preparation for my upcoming trip to the US and I've already added them to my travel washbag. I'll be sure to let you know my thoughts on them on my return. I've got a Fruity Time Shower Gel and Body Milk and some of Medi Blanc's toothpastes to put to the test.

In addition to all of these brands, you'll also find drugstore favourites like Makeup Revolution, L'Oreal and Maybelline, French Pharmacy brands like La Roche-Posay, Vichy and Bioderma, as well as more high end brands like Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder and MAC. You'll also find many different perfume and fragrance brands on their site too.

Have you discovered any great beauty products or brands as a result of blogging or reading blogs? Have you tried any of the products in today's post? If so, what did you think of them? And which brands are you most excited to see on Notino?
