3 Hydrating Face Masks to See you Through Winter




When it comes to skincare you can't beat a good face mask and with winter in full swing, the cold is sucking the life out of my skin. So I have 3 of my favourite hydrating masks.

On Trend Beauty Products You Have to Try



Well have is strong word but these products I'm going to talk about are definitely worth checking out. I tend to find on trend beauty products a but gimmicky and rarely stick around for longer than a season but these products have become staples in my routine and I couldn't imagine not having them.

High End Discoveries


I can't believe this is the last High-end discoveries of the year! Where has the year gone? November was a bit of a strange month for discovering new products, I brought loads and had loads to test but I've been so busy it's been hard to actually test. I have managed to test some products enough to review them. So let's get into it.

Beauty Lovers Gift Guide



My whole christmas list is filled with beauty products and it's a great way to gift your loved one something they probably wouldn't buy themselves. So here's a few gift ideas.

Toners Actually Worth Using



Toners are one of those beauty products that have the beauty world divided. You either love them or hate them. For years I never really see the point in them. And many were packed with alcohol and far too stripping for skin. But over the recent few years toners have really turned a corner and I've found a few that are definitely worth using!

Pixi Glow Tonic* | £18 | REVIEW

This is the toner that changed the game for me! It uses AHA's to gently exfoliate the skin, revealing fresher, brighter looking skin. The AHA concentration is quite low so it can be used everyday. I personally use it every other day because I use a lot of AHA products so I don't want to overly exfoliate my skin. But this definitely works! It helps skin to look more refined, smoother and glowing.

Pixi Hydrating Mist | £18 | REVIEW

I'm not sure this is actually categorised as a toner but it's one of the ways I like to use it. This super fine mist is packed with hydrating ingredients to instantly refresh and plump the skin. I like to use it after cleansing because sometimes my skin can be left feeling dry and tight. It instantly leaves it feeling hydrated. When used in the morning it also feels so refreshing and helps to wake me up a bit. The mist can also be used throughout the day too.

Alumiers Bright & Clear Solution*

I've actually had this in my stash for quite a while but in last month or so I've started using this and I love it! It's an Exfoliating toner like the Pixi one but this one uses Lactic acid. I notice far better results with Lactic acid, my skin just loves it. After using this everyday for a week I started to see results. My skin looked a lot brighter and clearer. This also contains vitamin C for super brightening power. I also love that this comes with a pump. I really can't recommend this enough.

So they are my favourite toners.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...

A few Drugstore Discoveries



I really don't think these posts need much of an introduction anymore! But if you are new it's basically the affordable discoveries I made from the month before.

Affordable Beauty Gift Guide



Christmas can be ridiculously expensive and not everyone has hundreds of pounds to spend on one person yet alone more than one! Luckily there are some really lovely, affordable gifts out there so I have a guide of some really affordable ones.

Maintainable Autumn / Winter Lip Shades


I love Autumn / Winter lip shades and all the rich tones that come with Autumn. But they are so bloody difficult to wear and maintain. Some shades end up round my face, on my teeth, not to mention the dryness that comes with matte formulas. Most times, especially if I'm busy I can't cope with the upkeep of these kinds of shades. Luckily I've found some stunning rich hues that don't need maintenance like some.

New York Haul | Drugstore & More


As promised in my New York Sephora Haul (here) I'm back with my drugstore haul. I was a little under whelmed by their drugstores to be honest. They did have a lot in terms of shade range but it wasn't any cheaper than here after you add the tax on, in fact it might have been a little bit more expensive. But anyway I managed to pick some things I've wanted to try for ages. I also brought some stuff in Urban Outfitters.

Best In Beauty | November




The latter half of November was super exciting because I went to New York and most of what I took with me were beauty products I knew I could rely on so there's quite a few old favourites that made their way into this months Best in Beauty.

My New York Sephora Haul



I'm sure most of you already know I went to New York last week. It was an amazing trip, I think I might do a separate post about what I got up to. But obviously there was a lot of shopping involved! I was there over Black Friday which was exciting but to be honest I found it all a bit overwhelming. The shops were packed full of people and I didn't find many beauty bargains. That being said I still spent a lot of money. Mainly in Sephora, which is a beauty lovers heaven! I did a bit of drugstore shopping too but I will do a separate post next week on what I brought there otherwise this post will be super long.

Stocking Filler Gift Ideas



Gift Guide season is upon us. I've just come back from New York and I'm feeling super festive so I thought it was the perfect time to share my gift ideas. I personally love stocking fillers and little gifts, I think it's a great way to try stuff you probably wouldn't by yourself and plus they are super cute! Here's some of my perfect Stocking Fillers:

Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation - Worth the Hype?


It's been a while since I've done one of these Worth the Hype posts and I thought it was the perfect opportunity with this Huda Beauty Foundation. My experience with Huda Beauty is very small, I've only tried this and the warm toned Obsessions palette (Which I love) so I was super intrigued! Plus I'd seen this foundation all over her Insta stories and the results look incredible! But is it Worth the Hype?...

Luxury Haircare That is Worth Every Penny



Over my blogging time I've discovered and tried so many amazing products, especially haircare. I used to think that you didn't have to pay a lot of money for good haircare. And while that is true for some products I have discovered some products that are whole heartedly worth every penny.

So today I thought I'd share with you my top 10 favourite Cult Beauty Products of 2017.

My Skincare Routine When I Have Breakouts



I find I talk a lot about products individually but I actually think sometimes it's a combination of products that really make a difference to my skin rather than standout products. And I've found this is the case particularly when my skin is breaking out, angry and sensitive.

I have dehydrated skin too so finding products that will sort spots out without leaving my skin feeling super dry can be a real struggle. I have found a combination of products that really speed up the healing time and gets my skin back to normal.

Makeup Lately


I don't really think these posts need an introduction anymore! If you're new it's basically the makeup I've been reaching for throughout the last month. Check out the 'REVIEW' links for more in depth reviews.

On Trend Highlighters that Won't Break The Bank - MUA Prism Highlighters



MUA is probably one the most affordable brands out there. Offering us brilliant, on trend products that perform really well without the hefty price tag. They recently launched the prism highlighter collection. Which consists of some amazing formula and shades. I've been testing the range and I'm ready to report back.

The Winter Skincare Switch



As the season changes skincare definitely needs changing to. The environment can have a huge effect on my skin, especially the cold. My skin becomes even dryer and dehydrated. The key to finding the right products is knowing what your skin is doing - is it dryer? Or more sensitive? Once you know that you can switch up your products accordingly.

Soap & Glory Advent Calendar Review



Beauty Advent Calendars have exploded over the last couple of years, with almost every brand bringing out their own. From High-end to affordable, candles to nail polishes their are so many. I was really excited when this Soap & Glory Calendar Girls* landed on my door step! So I thought I'd review it for you guys...

My Top Shelf Hydration Heroes


I really enjoy these Top Shelf style posts and with winter around the corner I thought what better time to share my favourite hydrating products. I have dehydrated skin so a few of these products are in rotation all year round. But they are my absolute favourites and I couldn't be without them.

5 Products That Have Wowed Me This Week


I am forever testing new beauty products, I'm not complaining, I love it! And I love it even more when I'm instantly wowed by a product. So here's a few that have done just that.

Pricey Eye Makeup That's Worth The Splurge



I did a similar post about affordable eye makeup a while back so I thought I'd do a high end version. High-end makeup can be just as hit and miss as the drugstore so I've put together this little edit.

High-end Beauty Discoveries



Last week we had the affordable discoveries I'd made now it's time for the high-end ones throughout October. Without Further ado.

My SOS Skincare Kit


My skin can be so unpredictable sometimes, one day it will be so dry then the next it will be breaking out! So I have a little collection of treatments to sort my skin out regardless of what it's doing or not doing.

Affordable Discoveries



It's time to share the affordable beauty discoveries I've made throughout October. There was quite a few so let's get into it.

Best In Beauty | October



How is it November already? I say this every month but October has whizzed by! And it means it's time for another Best in Beauty round up...

My Ultimate Recommendations to Try from ColourPop



ColourPop for sure is one my favourite affordable brands! I've tried a lot from them so I wanted to share my ultimate favourites! ColourPop do ship to the UK, however the shipping can be quite expensive but they normally have free international shipping on orders over $50 so I normally order then. I do get customs charges on an order this big though, which is normally around £15-£20. In my opinion ColourPop is totally worth it though. Anyway here's my picks..

Affordable Skincare Basics for Fresh Glowing Skin


In a bid for fresh glowing skin my skincare routine can be pretty lengthy. Some evenings I find myself using like 5 oils that all pretty much do the same thing. But when I actually sat down and thought about the products that really work, that I repurchase I found that my routine is pretty simple and quite affordable. So I thought I'd share them with you. For reference I have dehydrated skin.

Noteworthy Newness from Complexions

This post was sponsored by Complexions. However, all opinions are my own.

Miss G Couture the online fashion brand, home of the Bandage Dress and power house of fashion for girls that don't do casual have brought out a collection of makeup! From a killer highlighter to a flawless contour they have everything you need. I've been testing a few of the staple pieces...

Coverage Without the Cake



Finding high coverage foundations and formulas can be quite the task! I find this even more so as I have dehydrated skin. Vichy, the French pharmacy skincare brand are well known for their amazing skincare and makeup. I've been testing some products from their Dermablend range which offers high coverage formulas and a natural finish.

Autumn Eyes, Lips and Cheeks


Autumn is well and truely upon us! And I'm not sad to say good bye to summer. I just love everything about Autumn. The makeup especially. So today I'm here to share my Autumn eye, lip and cheek picks..

Treat Yourself (or a loved one) with Benefit This Christmas


Christmas comes around quicker and quicker every year! I'm not complaining though, I love Christmas! Today I have a couple of gift ideas for the beauty lovers in your life or yourself. Whether you are a last minute shopper or have already started, Benefit have some great gift sets that any beauty lover would love...

Blemish Fighting Skincare


I'm sure I'm not the only one but I take every precaution to prevent breakouts and blemishes. But sometimes no matter what I do I will just breakout for no apparent reason! 9 times out 10 it's because I've had a reaction to some skincare I'm testing or because I've been too over active with acid treatments. I personally find spot treatments and skincare targeted at blemishes far too harsh for my skin type, Which is dehydrated. Especially more affordable, drugstore options, sometimes it can feel like I'm putting nail polish remover on my face! Which isn't great. But on my 'perfect skin' mission I've found some amazing products that really help blemishes and spots without being too harsh.

Lee Stafford Haircare Guide


Judging from this photo I think it's safe to say I'm a fan of Lee Stafford haircare! It's actually been a favourite of mine for long time, way before the days of blogging! The brand pretty much cover every type, condition and problem. And the products genuinely work! Most of them are very reasonably priced too. So I thought I'd share my thoughts on the products.

Makeup Lately



These posts don't really need an introduction, it's just the Makeup I've been reaching for lately. Remember to check out the review links for full reviews / swatches.

Love Me Beauty | October


Regular readers will know how I feel about the  Love Me Beauty* Subscription, I love it! Each month for £10 you get 60 credits to spend, if there's more stuff you want you can even buy more credits. The massive selling point for me is that you get to pick what you want rather than having products that aren't suitable!

New In From Deciem


Deciem, the umbrella brand of Niod, The Ordinary and Hylamide, plus many more, really is the brand everyone is talking about at the moment. With effective, science driven formulas that really deliver results, it's no wonder everyone is going crazy from them. I've been testing a few of their latest releases and I'm ready to report back.

High-end Setting Sprays & Face Mists


This is the final instalment in my setting spray and face mists, the high-end ones. You can read part One here and Two here. My high-end mist collection is relatively small in comparison to others but let's get into it.

How I make the Fenty Beauty Foundation Work


The world probably doesn't need another Fenty `Pro Filter Soft Matte Longwear Foundation review but I want to throw my 2 scents in because I actually found this quite difficult to work with. I have dehydrated skin so 9 times out of 10 anything with matte in title doesn't work for me.

High-end Discoveries


I've actually been trying to be better with my money and not spend so much on makeup so I thought I was going to struggle with this post this month but I surprisingly have a lot to talk about. So let's get into it.

B Perfect 10 Second Tan



I'm a fake tan junkie. I can't remember the last time I didn't tan. So I've tried a few in my time. And finding a good fake tan is actually really hard! When the B Perfect 10 Second Tan* landed on my desk, with it's bold claims I was excited.

4 K-Beauty Products That Have Made It Into My Skincare Routine


I've been well on board the K-Beauty train recently. I have 4 products that are easy to get in the UK (Check out the links) that I've been loving and that have become part of my everyday skincare routine.

ColourPop Pressed Palettes | Review and Comparison


It's no secret I'm a huge fan of ColourPop. Their pressed shadow formula is amazing, so good for the price. So when they started releasing Fixed Pressed Shadow palettes needless to say I was excited! I have all 3 that they've launched so far. So I thought it was about time I reviewed them.

Multi Tasking Beauty Products that Actually Work


Who doesn't love a multi tasking product, you tackle more than one issue with one product. But to be honest I tend to find most products promise to do more than one thing don't actually and just turns out to be a bit of meh product. But recently I've discovered a few multi-tasking products that actually do more than one job really well.

Affordable Discoveries



This post is usually Drugstore Discoveries but throughout August I've discovered quite a few affordable brands that aren't available in the drugstore but I want to include them! This month was quite exciting for discoveries, I've tried some amazing brands. So let's get into it.

Best in Beauty | September


I can't believe how quickly this year is going! The end of September means it's time for another Best in Beauty. So let's jump straight in.

Affordable Skincare That Works #2


Affordable skincare can be so hit and miss, well high-end skincare can be too but I find this more so when skincare is really cheap. But recently I have found some affordable gems that work equally well, if not better than some high-end products in my stash. I did do a similar post a while ago, you can read that here. For reference I have dehydrated skin that is prone to breakouts.

Lash Perfect Lash Lift


Eye lash perming and extensions are not a new thing but recently these types of treatments have made an explosion and everyone is getting them done. For busy people it just makes sense, you don't have to faff around with eye lash curlers and expensive mascaras to get that long fluttery lash look.
Back in August I was invited down to the Lash Perfect Salon to get my eye lashes permed.
