Neal’s Yard Rose Facial Oil

Even though I have dry skin, I’ve always been put off using facial oils for fear that they’d leave me feeling greasy. There’s always the worry that oils are too heavy or rich for my skin as it can be super sensitive. However, this little wonder product was a gift for my birthday and its…

Let’s Be Frank

Frank. You may have heard the brand ‘Frank’ bandied about recently. Seemingly popping up out of nowhere, Frank has gone from a brand posting pictures of beautiful wide-eyed girls covered in coffee to a brand that almost every blogger I know has mentioned. When I first discovered Frank, I wrote this post, and since then…

No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator

My passion for at-home skincare is increasing as the months go by. Boots had a buy one get one free offer, so I got their Micro-dermabrasion exfoliator for free. It’s normally £11 here, which is quite good value for money considering you only need to use a small amount.  The product itself is a white,…

Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stain

A little late on the bandwagon, I recently bagged Revlon’s Colourstay Moisture Stain in Barcelona Nights. A big fan of lip stains and not so much of glosses, I had my fingers crossed that this was going to live up to my expectations… The first thing I found was the odd shaped applicator, which made…

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

This product has done the rounds. The Origins Drink Up Intensive mask has always seemed a bit of cult product in the beauty blogging world. Perhaps surprisingly for someone who suffers with extreme dry skin, I’d never actually tried this mask until recently. Unlike most face masks I use, this one is left on overnight….

No7 Melting Gel Cleanser

If there’s one thing I can never stop trying, it is new cleansers. The quest for perfectly clean, supple and moisturised skin is an ongoing mission of which I will probably be on for the rest of my life. This Melting Gel Cleanser from No7 is the latest trial product in this journey, a surprisingly…

The Summer ’14 Face

Summer face stuff is simple in my world. Keep it light, keep it barely there. However, whilst I don’t want my face weighed down with a whole load of product, I don’t want to bare each pore to the unsuspecting world. The latest combination of products keep my face looking peachy throughout the hotter days,…

Maybelline Brow Drama

£4.99 here A good brow product is hard to find when your budget is limited. Wonder products can tranform a few straggly hairs into Cara inspired brows, but often these come with a hefty price tag. Brow drama is a nice little find. Unlike a pencil, it doesn’t smudge, it gives a natural (non-drawn on)…

MaxFactor Colour Adapt Foundation

£9.99 here The never-ending hunt for the perfect foundation continues. A little discovery in this journey is MaxFactor’s Colour Adapt offering. A smooth, blendable formula, the colour adapt foundation sinks into a smooth, evened out base within seconds – leaving you with a subtly healthy finish. Before: After: Unlike my other foundations, it doesn’t hold…

Crest 3D Professional White Strips

If you saw my last Crest whitening post, you’ll know that I saw great results from the Gentle Routine – read more here. However, when seeing the 3D Professional Strips on offer on Ebay, I decided to try these instead. You can get them here. These strips were much sticker than the sensitive ones, which…
