Something I Regret :(


I really don't like talking negatively about a product but, I was that unhappy with this buy i had to share it. 

Its the Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm. I purchased this because i ran out of my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and needed something to fill the gap until pay day. So seeing this in Boots for £8 I thought what a bargain and its just what I needed.

Now i have never used a cleansing balm before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have heard so many good reviews about the Clinique balm so I was hoping this would be a good little dupe.

Well... it starts off good, the balm is solid in the tube but as soon as you dig your fingers in starts melting and makes it super easy to rub into the face. 

Then rubbing it into the face it is super oily and really hard to wash off. i felt like i had to wash my face with a face wash afterwards to make sure all the product was gone! 

Its not something I would by again, when I wash my face I want it to feel clean, not like i have rubbed butter all over my face!

Have you tired this? What is your favourite hot cloth cleanser?

Kick Imperfections' Ass...


So it seems I've been on a little concealer buying spree... but i think when you have a good concealer in your arsenal then you've pretty much nailed a flawless look!

I have used the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer before - the three piece camouflage kit and loved it but when that ran out i went back to the old favourite collection concealer. 

Whilst looking for some new makeup this little beauty caught my eye. The Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer - Blur & Brighten concealer. Which comes in a nifty little pen and is available in two colours - Light and Medium. 

Of course i went for Light, which matches my skin tone perfectly! This is a great light weight concealer that covers most imperfections, if you have quite dark under eye circles i would probably opt for the original Kick Ass Concealer.

The formula is super creamy which makes it really easy to apply without dragging the skin and super easy to blend in but this does mean it needs to be set with a good powder other wise it creases! It works just as well whether you prefer to apply concealer under your foundation or over the top, but it also looks perfect without any foundation.

Have you tried this yet? if not which concealer do you recommend?

Rimmel Provocalips - Little Minx

Rimmel Provocalips - Little Minx

Rimmell Provocalops Little Mix Swatch

Well I finally have my computer back and I can blog again :) yey!! 

I have been loving this lip colour for that past couple of weeks, its a perfect in your face pink that is perfect now the days are starting to get warmer and when applied with the balm it lasts all day!

The Rimmel Provocalips is available in eight different shades from a subtle nude to the deepest plum! So there is something for everyone! The product has two ends one is the high intensity colour lacquer and the other is the lock in balm. 

I love this lip duo because it stays put all day with a beautiful shine and it is not in the slightest bit sticky.

Skinny Dipping and I'll Call You are definitely next on my list.

I bought this when Rimmel was on two for £10 at Boots so it was an absolute bargain!

Have you tried any of the Provocalips yet?

Garnier Ultimate Blends - Honey Treasure


So I am kind of obsessed with the Garnier Ultimate Blends. I have tried most of the scents and whilst strolling through Boots I noticed these bad boys!

What I love most about this combo is that the shampoo is super thick which makes it perfect for rubbing into the scalp and getting a great lather! 
The conditioner is super nourishing and clings to the hair making it super smooth!

The Strength Restorer range is aimed at people with fraglie hair and that is prone to breaking, which now that my hair is getting longer and i honestly cannot remember the last time is saw a hair dresser... my hair really needs something to help with the split ends! 

The Honey Treasure has a little added Royal Jelly to add extra softness and has a really nice subtle honey scent.

Have you tried any of the Garnier Ultimate Blends yet? Which is your favourite?
