Below are my favourite face products atm-

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (Boots-£9.99-51 Light Vanilla)-
-Can be used as a light/ medium coverage foundation
-Stays on all day
-Easy to apply
-Reasonably priced
-Good coverage
-Dewy effect, but not to much if that makes sense (hehe)

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (Boots-£7.99-Light)-
-Sheer coverage, but still covers any imperfections
-Has an SPF 30, which is great for summer
-It can look a bit orange and scary when first applied, however when it sets in it matches to your skin tone
-Reasonably priced

Benefit You Rebel Lite (Debenhams-£24.50)-
-Very sheer coverage
-Gives a natural glow
-A bit too pricey, however the tube is massive and you get a lot of product
-Very moisturising 
-Has and SPF 15, which is also great for summer

Quick Lip Balm Review-

 Nuxe Reve de Miel (Lip Balm)- Feel Unique- £9.50

Ok so I've never paid more than about £4 for a lip balm before, but just recently my lips have been feeling so chapped and rough that I thought it was time that I treated myself to a higher (well what i presume is a) end lip balm, and I am so glad that I did! Firstly I love the smell, it smells of honey but not to sweet, secondly I love the texture of it on my lips it feels quite matte, which I know is a bit weird considering its suppose to be a moisturising lip balm but it still nourishes and moisturises my lips so well.

It not only moisturises them but I feel it is repairing my lips as well; honestly my lips have never felt so soft and in good condition. You can apply this as much as you want, but you don't really need to re-apply it that often because it literally lasts on the lips for ages; if I put it on before I go to bed at night, I can still feel it on my lips the next morning when I wake up, now that's impressive! (Well it is to me anyway, hehe) 

So yeah, I would defiantly recommend this to anyone, and although the price is a little steep just for a lip balm its so worth it and also you get loads of product so its going to last you a while anyway, and yes I will most certainly be repurchasing this when I run out, I'm so happy I made the decision to try this!

Hair Heaven?

Quick Hair Mask Review-


Just a quick review on a hair product that I have recently been loving; bearing in mind my hair is very dry and damaged from heat, it still left it feeling soft and silky. I left it on my hair for about and hour and a half and by the time I had washed it off my hair felt great, not repaired, but still great. I also love the smell, to me it smells like holidays, like Shea butter, it just smells amazing and the smell lasted in my hair until the next time I washed it. I feel it is very reasonably priced and would definitely recommend it and repurchase it again.

Thank You

Random Beauty Haul...

The other day I went on a little shopping trip with my lovely Mom and just thought I'd show you some of the items we picked up along the way (Also I've added the two products we ordered from Avon too)...

Bristows Silver Shampoo- Bodycare 99p
I needed a new purple shampoo and the one I normally buy (the Silverkin one I think its called) was out of stock so I thought I would give this one ago, I don't know how well this will work but I shall let you all know!

St Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Face Scrub- Superdrug £1.96
Me and my Mom both wanted to try out a new face scrub and decided between us to get this one, mainly because it smelt really nice like apricots; I shall let you know if its any good and worth buying.

Avon Liquid Freeze Nail Dry Spray- Avon £3.00
I had been eyeing this up for a few weeks and when the Avon book come I finally decided to buy some, I have used this once and it is really, really good in all fairness, it dried my nails really quickly and left a nice shine too them, would definitely recommend.

Avon Nail Art brush- Avon £1.50
I have been getting into painting my nails more often recently and saw this advertise in the book  and thought it looked really cool and that I'd give it a little go, I haven't tried it yet, but as I said above I will do a review on it soon. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Concealer/Corrector- Poundland £1.00
I was just randomly having a nose around Poundland as we all do every now and again, because everyone knows you can get some real bargains from there, and I came across this concealer, I hadn't saw it in Boots or Superdrug for a while so that must have discontinued it (boooo) but thought I'd give it a go for a pound, and I am so glad I did, the colour matches my skin great and it gives great lasting coverage without looking to heavy on the skin.

Revlon Satin Eye shadow- Poundland £1.00 (010 Polished Bronze)
I also came across this gorgeous eye shadow colour and had to pick it up, considering it was only a pound, I haven't tried this one yet, but I'm really excited to do so, it looked really pigmented and a really wearable colour.

Real Techniques Haul...

#New Brushes Alert...

I've been wanting to buy some decent face brushes for sometime now, but never really knew which ones to go for, and after watching tutorials on YouTube and reading several blog posts, I decided I was going to go for the Real Technique ones as I hadn't really heard/read any bad reviews about them. 

So off I went to my local Superdrug where I was happy to discover that they were buy one get one half off, which i thought was  pretty good deal if you ask me aha! Below are the ones I chose to purchase-

The Core Collection Brush Set, which includes (from left to right)- £20.99

  • Contour brush
  • Pointed foundation brush
  • Detailer brush
  • Buffing brush
And I also picked up the Blush brush as it was half price- £4.99

I am yet to try these yet as I only brought them today, but I will definitely be using them very soon (probably tomorrow aha) and will let you know my thoughts on them, although I'm sure I'll like them as I already have the Stippling brush and I love that one!
