Say Goodbye to Chapped Lips with these Fab Lipbalms

I suffer with dry, chapped lips regardless of the time of year but in winter they are so much worse. And I tend to find most lip balms actually don't do anything or dry my lips out more! I've been searching high and low for the best lip balms and I'm ready to report back..

Chin Up Mask | Gimmick or Genius

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I'll pretty much try anything (within reason) to keep my skin looking as good as possible. Which led to me testing the Chin Up Mask. When this arrived I must admit I wasn't sure this was going to work. But I'm ready to report back.

Ingredient 101 - Niacinamide

The beauty world seems to be changing, we no longer want bold claims and promises from skincare, we want to know what's in it, how it works and the science behind it all. One of my favourite past times is researching ingredients. It's so helpful to know what works for my skin and what doesn't. So I'm back with the next instalment of my Ingredient 101 series. Today we're talking about Niacinamide. Which seems to be a highlighted ingredient in a lot of products recently.

A Few Festive Beauty Picks

It's no secret I love Christmas and the festive season, spending time with loved ones, eating loads, late nights and parties. All this paired with the cold it can have a negative affect on the skin.

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.
