French Pharmacy favourites Avène have recently launched a brand new collection which consists of just three products, and I have been trialing two of the trio. The Avène Tolérance Extrême range has been formulated using a maximum of seven essential ingredients, which work in synergy to form a non-complicated yet effective and high performing range working to leave skin hydrated, soft and supple. Like the skin, Tolérance EXTRÊME formulas contain a combination of water, a humectant (Glycerin to lock in hydration) and a selection of oils (lipids) that keep skin hydrated and protect the skin’s barrier. This combination of skin friendly ingredients leaves skin feeling comfortably nourished, allowing it… View Post

Over the last few months, I’ve become rather obsessed with solo eyeshadow pans as I love the convenience of being able to make your own palette and my favourite brand for eyeshadow pans is Makeup Geek, but I’d heard so much about the Coastal Scents Shadow Pots that I really wanted to try them. I noticed that Coastal Scents had a 24 hour offer where they had all of their Shadow Pots on offer for $0.99 instead of their normal $1.95 making them just 74 pence each which is just crazy, and too good an offer to miss. I ordered 15… View Post

There are so many different DIY Gel Nail kits on the market that it can be a little overwhelming when deciding which kit to purchase, and I’ve tried a couple of other kits so far, one of which I’ve already reviewed here on my blog; the Rokit Professional Gel Nail Kit. I did really like the Rokit Kit but I found the unit to be pretty bulky when it came to storage and the lack of colours was a little disappointing, although I know you can use other brand’s polishes within your gel kit, I personally prefer to use the… View Post

Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce is a fragrance I’ve seen feature on so many blogs and videos but I’d never tried it until recently as I’d wrongly dismissed it as being too floral for my liking but I’m so pleased I finally tried it as I love it so much. I got my Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Eau de Parfum from Luxplus where they have the 30ml size for just £24.95 which is incredible value for a D&G fragrance especially a 30ml bottle, and it also featured within my Top Three Spring to Summer Transitional Fragrances post. The Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Eau… View Post

Stila are one of my favourite eyeshadow brands, so I when I read about the new Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek Palette over on Antonia’s blog, I knew I needed to try one of them. The Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek Palettes are available in a total of four shade options to reflect skintone; Fair/Light, Light/Medium, Medium/Tan and Tan/Deep with each palette costing £28 and containing a mixture of eyeshadows and blushes. From the four shade options available, I have the Medium/Tan palette which I assumed wouldn’t match my porcelain skintone but I wouldn’t let the… View Post

This month’s Birchbox’s arrived a little later than normal, but better late than never and this month’s box is in collaboration with Millie Mackintosh with the theme of ‘Never Ending Summer’. This summer is proving to be pretty decent for British standards, especially if this week’s weather forecast is anything to go by so it feels finally feels appropriate for a summer themed box. If you’re new to Birchbox, it’s a monthly subscription box service where you receive a box of beauty treats each month for £12.95 although you can save money by purchasing a 6 month or 12 month… View Post
