L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner

Sunday, 28 December 2014

Now who doesn't want lush, thick, volumised hair? So when I saw the advert on TV for L'Oréal's Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, I knew that I had to get my hands on the whole range... To the extent where I got the masque and the serum! Yes, I went crazy!

And to my surprise, when getting to Boots, there was only one set on the shelf. Yes... It was fate, and it was waiting for me! I couldn't resist!!!

I confess I wasn't going to buy the masque or the serum but as they were there looking at me, I couldn't resist the temptation in buying the whole lot! Might aswell.

I will be using the products today and will be posting my review on them all soon. I hope it does what it says on the bottle! I'll  keep you posted. 

Much love x

RIMMEL Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner In Eastend Snob

Saturday, 27 December 2014

So after searching for Rimmel's EASTEND SNOB, and being sold out in nearly every single Boots or Superdrugs, I finally managed to get my hands on one.

Ok so the colour is lovely but I hate the fact that it is a retractable lip liner... Don't get me wrong, I do like certain retractable products, but for a lip liner I think that there is nothing better than sharpening your lip liner to achieve that perfect pout which with a retractable lip liner you cannot do as it becomes blunt. 

I will be using it up but not re purchasing this product. If it came in a pencil, for sure this would be constantly in my makeup bag especially for £3.99 you cannot go wrong.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Purifying Mask

Tuesday, 8 April 2014

So because I am a big fan of face masks, I'll try every single one under the sun!! I guess because of shift work, I like to feel a little bit pampered and really love taking care of my skin by treating it to a mask a few times a week. 

So as I was putting on my mask, I thought, why not do a review on the one I am using right now while I wait... Perfect!!!!

So this is another favourite face mask of mine! The Palmer's Purifying Mask!! It's a really lovely mask to just put on. It feels fresh and tingly to the skin which has a very cooking effect... And the smell is really nice.

So this mask is a purifying mask which draws out impurities, tighten and cools. Definitely cools as you instantly feel it. It's almost like a mint feel! Feels really cool, so this would be a fab 'holiday' mask for that burnt nose, cheeks oh forehead!

It has green clay and sweet almond oil and a lovely fresh white lily fragrance to it.

What I love about this mask is that it is for all skin types. It has Kaolin clay which dries on the surface of the skin to deep clean and draw out impurities. Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter for light hydration and Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Milk proteins soothe stressed skin.

This mask I must say is lovely and really does the job in making my skin appear glowy and radiant!! 

My skin feels refreshed and clean! 

What are your favourite face clay masks?

F.A.S.T Shampoo & Conditioner

Sunday, 6 April 2014

So after getting a hair cut last year and going wild (from very long to very short), I was determined to grow my hair as fast as I could so that I could get my long locks back. When i mean from very long to very short, I mean from having hair touching my hips to hair touching my chest! Yes... Major difference. I really don't know why I decided to cut it as short as I did, I guess I wanted a change... Well at least I got a good healthy chop!! I remember my hairdresser saying 'Debbie are you sure you want to go shorter?' 

Anyways, to cut the story short, I shot myself in the foot and I was longing for my long hair again. I especially noticed the difference when I had my hair tied up in a pony tail. It was so short I felt I couldn't even feel it.

It was then that I remembered a time I was walking into Boots and saw a shelf with a few 'on offer' products. One of them being a shampoo and conditioner called F.A.S.T!!! I went straight onto Google and read as much as I could on the products. All positive of course. But did it work?

F.A.S.T (Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy) is a blend of natural herbs and essential amino acids which provides the basis for quick healthy hair growth. The shampoo and conditioner works in combination to grow your hair as fast as possible... Up to 99%!!! It stimulates the hair growth and addresses all sorts of problems like a bad haircut, slow growing hair, and even weak dry hair that is prone to breakage. 

So there I was in Boots, the next day to purchase these products. It retails at £24.99 and you get the shampoo and conditioner. You can't buy these products separately. 

So after purchasing F.A.S.T I was excited to start using it. I know that the packaging isn't exactly the most glamorous on the bathroom shelf but who cares when what's important is what is inside. 

The smell is lovely although from what I have read, there are some people who don't like it. I made sure the shampoo penetrated my scalp for a good few minutes, doing exactly the same with the conditioner. It states that there are better results when you rinse your hair with hot water, I'm quite lucky in that fact as I love a really hot shower. Those that like luke warm water, I wouldn't know if the results would be the same.

So after washing my hair and drying it, the feeling is amazing and the hair feels sooooooo soft! Of course you're not going to see results after the first wash! But you do see results on the condition of the hair! Super silky, soft and smelling great! 

So does it work?

Yes!!!! Yes!!!! Yes!!!! It really does!!! My boyfriend was amazed at the results! It even gives you volume!!!! Something that I love in hair! I love big bouncy hair. Now I don't remember how many of these I went through. It does say you should wash your hair everyday with F.A.S.T to achieve better results, but I only used it every 3 to 4 days and the results were still amazing!

Now, I cut my hair in April 2013 and in August 2013 just 4 months after, this was the result!

The results after 4 months was just out of this world!!! I had never seen anything like it!!! Definitinately worth every penny!!!!!! 

So if you've had a bad haircut or your hair just grows really slow, this is definitely the product to use! I swear by it!!! Need I say anymore? Let me know your thoughts and experiences!

Check F.A.S.T out on www.fasthair.co.uk for reviews, testimonials and lots of yummy info on these fab products.

My NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm has arrived!!!!!

Tuesday, 1 April 2014

Knowing I was on my way to the post office to pick up my delivery from Escentual, made my smile even bigger than it usually is.

I was so excited to try the NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm, and to see what the whole fuss was about and don't I know it now!!! Yes beautiful peeps, this lip balm is amazing and definitely worth getting.

First of all, the pot... It's so darn cute! I love the frosted glass! It looks smart in your bag or even on your bedside table. The pot isn't at all heavy and fits nicely almost anywhere.

The smell.... OMG!!! It's to die for! As soon as I open it to put some on my lips, I have to smell it first! It has a citrus, organgy, honey smell to it! AMAZING!!! You'll want to be smelling it all day! Trust me! Actually... You'll want to eat it like me!

The consistency... Luxurious & divine! It's so buttery and moussey, like whipped cream, you'll just want to dip your fingers constantly in it. I'm serious!!!

The feel on the lips... AMAZING!!!! My lips are really dry, and this just kissed them all better. It leaves a matt effect on the lips which is great. Perfect for those who love their lipsticks and glosses! I felt a difference as soon as I coated my lips. And the nice thing is that you don't need a lot! 

I cannot wait to see the results in a few days time! Will definitely be reporting back! I'm sure it will be positive! 

I picked up my NUXE from www.escentual.com and they even threw in a nail file for me! And it's white!!! Love it!!!! Thanks a million guys!!!

Sunglasses Hut Lens Cleaner

Monday, 31 March 2014

If you wear glasses like me, you'll often find they'll get dirty again 2 mins after cleaning them!!! Especially if you are a make up wearer.

That's why I always rely on this bad boy to keep them clean and boy does it clean! It leaves your lens' so clean that it feels like you're not even wearing any glasses. And I'm being honest!

It comes in a little pouch and you can even choose between a range of colours! The micro fibre cloth is re-washable and is ever so soft and gentle.

You can see I love this stuff... I have two!!!! And the best thing about it is that you get free refills!!!! So when you've run out, just pop into your nearest Sunglasses Hut store and ask the girls for a free refill... Easy as 1, 2, 3!!!!

Phyto Lip Shine

Saturday, 29 March 2014

I recently popped into Coccon Beauty at Heathrow's Terminal 1 for a quick browse  to see what was new on the shelves and because I am a massive lover of nude lipsticks, I always like to be on top of what's out.

I've always been quite intrigued and curious about the brand Sisley but their prices are not exactly purse friendly although I must admit the products are to die for from what I have read. 

I remember reading an article on nude lipsticks and remember a Sisley lipstick being mentioned but couldn't remember which one it was. The lady at the counter 'Maddy' who was amazing told me exactly which one I was on about and how this lipstick had sold out worldwide!!! She knows her stuff!!! "Everyone is ranting on about how amazing this lipstick is" 

When she showed me the tester it just seemed like any other ordinary lip balm in a lipstick form. The colour I must admit is adorable. A baby matt pink... When she showed me a swatch on the skin, the glow and sheen was to die for, and then the packaging just blew me away!!!!

Thankfully I grabbed the last one. The Phyto Lip Shine is not just any ordinary lipstick. It is a glossy ultra-luminous lip treatment and boy does it do the job! They first time I used it on my lips, literally after a few minutes my lips felt amazing, plumped and full of life! It leaves such a wonderful sheen on the lips to the point I cannot explain. It's extremely light and so nourishing and lasts!

How beautiful is this packaging? It comes in a little velvet pocket that I absoulutly love. Getting this little baby out of your make up bag is just out of this world!!! 

How adorable is this lipstick? I just love it!!!!! A lipstick and a treatment in one!

Thanks Maddy!!!

NUXE Rêve De Miel Lip Balm

So I have just ordered this lip balm which everyone is ranting and raving about and I cannot wait to try it out! If you're someone who has really chapped lips like mine, then you will try anything!!! 

The reviews are amazing so it was definitely worth ordering!

It hasn't come through the post yet, but when it does, I shall be reviewing the product ASAP!!! 

Stay tuned!!! 

Nail Polish by H&M

So when it comes to nail polish, I'm always concerned about three things...

1. The drying time
2. The application
3. The lasting time before it starts to chip

I hate having to wait around for my nail polish to dry! I'm a paint and go girl! And because of my job, I always have to have my nails perfectly groomed and for that I rely on my favourite nail polish of all time! Nail Polish by H&M!!!

It does everything in one bottle... Perfect colour (nude), perfect application whether it's 1 coat or 2... Even 3!!!! And perfect drying time!!!

I cannot stress how amazing this nail polish is and how beautiful the colour is! If you like your nude colours then this is definitely the one to have in your collection. I can always rely on this little bottle!!! The easy application is fenomenal. The brush is perfect! Not too thick and not too thin! 

And let me tell you how long it lasts... It lasts and lasts!!! You'll find that chipping will come after a week or so... My nail polish will last me about 9-10 days! And I am constantly using my hands in my job and then the house chores too!!! 

Now the worst thing is, it's hardly ever in stock, so whenever I'm popping into H&M, I end up buying the whole rack of them!!!

The colour??? Pink Mist!!!! It's absoulutly gorgeous!!!!

Pick up a bottle at your nearest H&M!

BOTANICS Ionic Clay Mask

Friday, 21 March 2014

So I recently searched the web for the top 10 clay masks, and this one amazingly appeared! So I decided to give it a go.

Enriched with clarifying willowbark, this mask is suitable for all skin types but particularly good for oily skin to combination skin. This face mask actively removes impurities and deeply cleanses.
I was intrigued to find out what the feel of it on my skin was like but mostly how my skin felt after. 
You must shake it before applying so that it mixes well together. It's really runny and needs to be applied straight away on the face. I feel because it's so runny, it doesn't apply thick, but you can always build it up.

When the clay mask is drying, you can really feel the skin tightening. It really feels like the clay is drawing out all the impurities. Also another thing is that when the mask is drying, you can see the oil from the pores come above the skins surface. It really is amazing!

The only bad thing is that after a while (few days of use), it starts to smell... And really girls, do we really want this when relaxing with our clay mask on? I think not!!

Apart from that I have to say it's an amazing product!!! It gets rid of any redness and really does draw out all the yukky stuff... 

The hydrating properties of this mask leave skin feeling clearer, softer, smoother and less oily without over drying the skin.

And another great thing I must stress about is that it is travel size 100ml. So it's perfect as a holiday essential!

Treat yourself to a great product!
