What I use for my skincare

Hey Everyone!
Today I want to share with you what products I use to help my keep my skin as clear as possible. Although these products do help I still get those face demons when it’s coming up to ladies time and sometimes throughout the month when I’ve been lazy and not taken my make up off properly or just not used my products.


My first product is the Simple Moisturising Facial Wash, I use this when I’m in the shower while washing my face. I love the simple product line because it just makes your skin feel nice and smooth and gives it a tight feeling that feels like a fake face lift. It is very gentle on the skin and I have combination skin so I am dry here and oily there so it can be annoying trying to find something that suits both my needs. This however is very kind to my skin and I will continue to use it because I love it.

The second product is Clean and Clear Exfoliating Wash, this is the second product I use on my face when I’m in the shower. This does wonders to my skin and …

Royal Jelly Christmas present Review

Hey Everyone!
I received this Royal Jelly Pure Honey Nectar pampering set for Christmas and it comes in such a lovely packaging. I actually thought it was a Yankee candle because of the jar it comes in, but it was a nice surprise as I love bath sets. 

Now down to what comes inside the jar we have the Body Wash Cleansing and Softening, it has a very sweet smell which is all you can expect from a honey based set. When I used it, it left my skin feeling soft and the smell stayed which is a big thumbs up from me. There’s nothing worse then using a body wash and when you are relaxing after the bath or shower the smell is non existent. 
We then have the Overnight Intensive Rejuvenating Hand Cream, this smells just as sweet as the body wash. The consistency is thinner than I expected for a rejuvenating hand cream but it does as the bottle says and helps soften your hands. Now I am currently suffering from contact dermatitis on my right ring finger and when I placed this product on it tingled a …

Fenty Beauty Review

Hey Everyone! Happy New Year I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a fab new year, I know I did. Today’s blog is a review on the Fenty Beauty foundation by Rihanna, I have had this foundation since its came out but have had some time off from my blog as big changes happened in my life. However I am back at it and ready to share my favourite and not so favourite make up products with you all.
The first thing that I loved about this foundation was the range of shades they done, how incredible the range is. The second thing I loved was I was not the lightest shade… can we take a minute now at times the lightest shade is too dark for me. This foundation is like a second skin, it is very lightweight and looks very natural. I believe it to be medium coverage because if you have some face demons like me they still show through but I can build it and it builds very well. I don’t think I would say it builds to full coverage but close enough. Before using you have to shake the bottle I notic…

Beauty Product Mini Haul

Hey Everyone! 
Last week I went on a mini beauty haul at boots and got some beauty goodies! I did want three other products along with the ones I got but they were out of stock which is really annoying, as they were the reason I went to boots in the first place.
Besides not being able to pick up the L'oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Mask, the NYX colour correct palette or the Maybelline Contour Stick I was still able to pick up a few products I've been wanting. The first two things I picked up where the other two Pure Clay masks by L'oreal Paris, the detox and purifying mask. As soon as I seen these products were coming out I had to purchase and they were on sale or a first time sale price of £5 which you really can't complain about. I will be trying these products in the next week so I will have a blog for you about my impression on them. 



The next thing I brought was the NYX liquid illuminator in Sunbeam and I swatched this in boots the last time I was there and I knew I wo…

Review and First Impressions on NYX HD Finishing Powder

Hey Everyone! 
When I went to the NYX counter the other week I didn't just pick up the liquid lipstick, I also got the HD Translucent Finishing Powder. I have to say I have been wanting this product for some time because I've had translucent loose powders before and it made me go more white than I am? This is why I want to try this brand. Now I am as pale as ever and I do not need a powder to make me look more white but I only hear good things about the product so I can't wait to try it. 
To begin with I put my Bobbi Brown foundation and my Revlon concealer on to hide all those little imperfections on my face, then I reached for my HD powder to set my foundation. I decided to use the baking technique for under my eyes so I put a little more under my eyes to set my concealer. Then using my large powder brush by Eco I tapped it in my powder and placed it around my face. I made sure I patted it everywhere to set my foundation and concealer. After that I wiped away my under ey…

Primers High End VS Drugstore

Hey Everyone!
In my blog today I will be speaking about a high end primer and a drugstore primer and how they match up to each other. The two primers are going to be; the Maybelline Baby Skin primer (drugstore) and the Smashbox Photo Finish (high end). A big difference between the two is the price range, the baby skin is £7.99 in boots and you get 22ml. However for 12ml of the photo finish (which is a travel size) its £12.50, you can purchase the larger bottle which has 30ml for £25.50. As you can already see there is a large difference, but is the smashbox worth the money?
Firstly I will speak about the Maybelline Baby Skin and this primer is supposed to erase your pores, give you smooth skin and should feel lightweight when on the skin. I agree with all of these I have to say when I put it on it did minimize the look of my pores, my skin felt smooth and it didn't feel like I was wearing a primer. With all this said it still has a thick consistency so I would only use a small amoun…

NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick First Impressions

Hey Everyone! 
Firstly can I just express my happiness that now I can walk to boots and have access to the NYX cosmetics! It's amazing that boots has a stand if you live in Birmingham the two boots I know that have the counters are; boots at the fort and the large boots in town. The counter, can I just say looks so slick it's set out really nice (I would have taken a photo but the lady was a little weird when I was looking around) all the products are laid out in categories, for example all the lips products are together and the face products are on another part together ect. Everything is there for the taking and I plan to purchase a hell of a lot more products from these counters. 
However today's blog is going to be about the NYX Lingerie product in LIPLI03 Lace Detail, I was drawn to this colour when I just looked at the bottle then I swatched it on my hand and I was like yes I need this. It's a very pale peachy nude which is stunning on the lips. This is a very go…
