The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist


So In a previous post I mentioned how I took a little spending stumble into The Body Shop and came out with quite a few treats and some have now become holy grail products and that is the Vitamin E Face Mist.

How the hell have I coped in life before this stuff came along I honestly have no idea. The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist £8.00 is a refreshing moisture boost spray for the face. It comes in a handy 100ml spray bottle and has a lovely rose scent to it. Its great as a instant boost I actually took it to the gym the other day and it was perfect for a quick refresh I will definitely be keeping it in my bag. What I have mainly been using this bottle of perfection for is setting my make up. Once I have finished applying my make up for the day I give at least 2 sprays to the face and my make up stays put for the whole day and gives you a lovely finish. This stuff is seriously that good. I have even been reading reviews and apparently its good if you spray it on to make up brushes its great for holding eyeshadow in place so I will need to try that out.

Honestly guys this stuff is pretty awesome if you haven't tried it you must, it will fast become a new favourite. It can even be used on all skin types so why not give it a go.

Hope you enjoyed my rambling 

There wont be a post at the weekend as I'm off to see Katy Perry so will be posting regularly after the weekend. In the mean time have a fab one!!!

Soap & Glory Peach Party


How are you guys? Hope your all well and happy 

Now I have gone on and on about my love for Soap & Glory products since I started up this blog and I realise that majority of the products I have are skincare or bodycare. So I took a little dip into the adventurous pool and treated myself to a make up item. 

There is actually quite a bit of make up to choose from this range but I decided to go for a blush as I only really have 1 or 2 and I wanted to add a new one with a bit of a bronze for summer! So with all that in mind I decided to go for Peach Party, a beautiful blush brick with 3 different shades that are bronze, gold and a rosey pink. It looks so pretty I almost don't want to use it. I have been using this for the past few weeks and I love the result it gives on my cheeks. I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush and I only lightly dab it on one side then blend it in the apples of my cheeks. As I have been using this just as a day look I haven't gone wild on the shimmer for highlighting yet but I thought I would show you the results for the look I have been going with it.

Soap and Glory Peach Party Multi-Colour Blush Brick £11.00

It adds a lovely healthy glow to the cheeks, this is becoming quite the staple in my make up bag these days :)

Have you guys tried any of the make up from Soap & Glory? is there any products that you would recommend?

Hope you guys enjoyed this post

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

The other week I was in Boots and I couldn't help myself but to add another brush to my Real Techniques collection. 

The brush I went for was the Expert Face Brush £9.99, I wanted to go for a brush that blends my foundation into my skin really well. I have been finding that some times my foundation has really needed to be worked into my skin for it to be all blended and not looking that it's just sitting on my face. So with this one I take one pump of foundation on the back of my hand and take the brush, just dab a little of foundation onto one side of the brush. Starting from my cheeks I start to blend the foundation outwards then a little on my forehead and chin again working outwards. So far so good, there's no streaky marks from the bristles which by the way are super soft on the skin, it blends in foundation really well and even better my foundation doesn't look like its sitting on my face. I love this brush!!!

Have you guys tried any of the Real Techniques brushes? is there any others that you would recommend.

Hope you guys have enjoyed this post.

The Body Shop Eye Definer in Smoky Plum

I was in The Body Shop a few weekends ago and whilst picking up a few of my favourite items I took a wander over to the make up section and decided to go for something a little out of my comfort zone and that is a colour eyeliner.

The Body Shop Carbon Eye Definers £9.00 come in 4 high pigmented shades, I went for a beautiful deep purple. It has a lovely smooth texture it's easy to apply and comes with a built in smudger  at the opposite end of the pencil which is great for doing a smoky eye look. It is also water resistant which is perfect for summer times for me as I can suffer from hayfever pretty bad and get watery eyes, least I know with this on its staying on. Applying this eyeliner it goes on pretty smooth and the staying power of this is really good I have been applying it in the morning gone off out and it has lasted all day, till bed time where I remove my make up using my Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter which removes it like a dream.

I have been using this on my top lash line and loving it, its a subtle hint of colour for the eyes which is great for day to day wear and its a great break from the black.

I also tried it out with a deep purple lipstick and it worked out really well.

Have you guys tried any of these liners? or any colour liners I would love to know what you guys recommend.

Superdrug Aloe Vera Mud Mask

Aloha you beautiful bunch, hope you are all well and feeling pretty happy now the suns showing itself a little bit more.

Todays post is all about a little pamper product I treated myself to about a month or 2 ago in Superdrug. Its their Aloe Vera De-Stressing Mud Mask, now I love a face mask and most of mine usually range from about £7-£10 however this little guy was super cheap so I have started to use it as my go to mask and use my more pricey ones if I have a bit of a breakout.

The packaging of this product is a lovely light green (representing the colour of the aloe vera perhaps?) 75ml tube. The writing on the tube is in white standing out from the green, it also has a cute little sketch of an aloe vera plant on the front with a little run down about the product. This one is all about De-Stressing containing Aloe Vera extract. And it aims to give you a soft radiant complexion and can be used on Normal to Combination Skin type.

The Aloe Vera helps to calm the skin and replenish moisture while the Dead Sea Mud cleanses and purifies pores.

As I mentioned in this post this item has become my go to mask at the moment, I mask once during the week (usually a Wednesday) and once on a weekend (normally a Sunday). I mostly use this on an evening after removing any make up. I squeeze an amount about the size of a grape, the product's colour is a light green, its thick in consistency and smells clean and fresh is the best way to describe it. I use my Oriflame mask brush and brush it on my face covering everywhere apart form my eyes and lips. I find using a brush a lot easier and saves getting mask all over your fingers and then on the tube if you need to any more product. I usually go off and tidy things up, make a cup of tea and watch a bit of tv leaving the mask on for about 15-20 minutes. It says on the tube to leave it on for 10-15 but I always end up leaving it on an extra 5-10 minutes. Once my times up I then go remove the mask rinsing 2 small round sponges and going round in circular motions round my face loosening the mask then use a face cloth in warm water removing any excess product, patting my face dry with a towel. After that I continue through my skincare routine by cleansing, toning and then moisturising leaving my skin feeling lovely and pampered.

This product is perfect for your weekly mask there is a variety of different types you can choose from and at such a reasonable price there's no question to not give it a try.

Superdrug Aloe Vera Mud Mask De-stressing Mask £2.59

Have you guys tried any of Superdrugs Mud Masks? any recommendations? let me know please.

Dove Summer Glow

So guys its coming up to that season where the sun is ment to be out and shining bright and the temperature starts to get a little warmer, that's right I'm talking about Summer!! This means the skin is going to be out on show and I'm not sure about you guys but I don't like being pale like a ghost in summer times and I always feel a little better with a bit of a glow. Now I'm not a huge fake tan fan as I'm sure I'm going to apply wrong or I worry that I'm going to have one leg darker than the other. But when I notice the weather is slowly starting to change I think maybe its time to slowly get summer skin ready and use my tinted lotion.

The product I always turn to is Dove Summer Glow Fair to Medium £4.99, a lovely body moisturising lotion which gradually builds up giving your skin a healthy summer glow. One the best things about the this product is that it's not only really moisturising to the skin it doesn't leave any fake tan after smell it actually smells really good. I apply it in the morning after my shower making sure I get the awkward areas like knees and elbows. For my hands after applying the lotion on my body I wash them then squeeze a pea sized amount on my hand rubbing it in like hand cream. I don't want it to build up too much so instead of using it everyday I only use it every second or third day just to keep up the little glow I have.

I really love this stuff its one my favourite products for keeping up what little tan I can get or if I'm just looking to have a nice healthy glow. Have you guys ever tried this lotion? or anything similar? 

Hope you enjoyed this post
