The August edition of UK Glamour magazine has just been released and there are some awesome freebies to be had!
There are three travel sized products to choose from for an amazing £2! The cover has Ellie Golding on the front.
First of all is the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion +. I bought this last year and absolutely love it! It’s so hydrating and light so it doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I love this cute sample sized 15ml bottle which is perfect for taking on holiday!
Next is the cult High Impact Mascara. I have seen this used a lot by Sam and Nic from Pixiwoo so am looking forward to seeing if it lives up to the hype!
Finally, there are two Chubby Sticks to choose from: Whoppin’ Watermelon and Super Strawberry
Here’s a quick swatch. L Woopin’ Watermelon which is a light pink with slight shimmer R Super Strawberry which is a nice dark pink.
Chubby sticks are a sheer moisturising lip balm so the pigmentation is not designed to be strong. Instead these feel lovely and smooth on the lips!
For me this is an ideal way to try more Clinique products without shelling out a lot! Did you manage to pick any up? What are your thoughts?
Today I only just realised the MAC Playland collection was out! Seeing everything sold out online, I popped down to my local MAC to see what was left. I walked straight past the Osbourne collection thinking nah that’s not a … Continue reading →
I received a newsletter from Debenhams about their 10% beauty and fragrance sale and I saw the original Mia for £89! After browsing the website decided to spend a bit more and invest in the Clarisonic Mia 2 for £112 instead.
In case you don’t know what it is, the Clarisonic was a breakthrough beauty product launched a few years ago. Its a cleansing gadget which uses sonic frequency to produce tiny movements; 300 per second to be exact! This helps remove all the makeup, impurities and sebum from the skin and claims to be up 6x better then manual cleansing. Basically I think of it as a clever electric toothbrush for the skin! (I found out later that one of the founders of Clarisonic actually did invent the sonic toothbrush!). Before parting with my hard earned cash I did a lot of research by reading reviews and the overwhelming majority had positive things to say. Since my skin has been playing up recently I thought it’s a good time try it out.
I opted for the Lancôme kit which included the Gel éclat clarifying cleanser 125ml and a 7ml sample of the Visionnaire advanced skin corrector serum.
Also included is a 30ml Clarisonic refreshing gel cleanser, a travel case and the charger. I love that the Clarisonic comes with a sturdy case which is portable and not too heavy but will keep my new precious safe!
I also love the fact that the charger is magnetic – how cool! Another plus point is that it’s waterproof and can be used in the bath or shower.
The Mia 2 comes with the sensitive brush head which I am happy about as I don’t want to be too harsh on my skin.
I am very excited to be starting my Clarisonic journey and have high hopes for clear glowing skin! I will update you all with how I’ve been getting on with in a few weeks.
It’s exciting when an exotic makeup line suddenly becomes accessible. I’m looking forward to stepping into the world of NYX and experimenting with them myself! If only Make Up Forever was here too! Have you tried any NYX products?
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit Rome, Italy. Naturally, I visited a few pharmacies to see whether there were any amazing native beauty and skincare ranges like there are in France. Unfortunately I didn’t see anything … Continue reading →
Hi everyone! So for years I have heard countless praises for the Bioderma Sensibo (formally known as Crealine) H20 Micelle Solution. Everyone from Lisa Eldridge (awesome celebrity make-up artist – check out her YouTube videos) to every glossy mag has … Continue reading →
Hi lovelies! Over the weekend I went to Bicester Village and picked up a few goodies for myself. If you haven’t heard of Bicester Village before its a luxury outlet shopping centre on the outskirts of Bicester, near Oxford. It is … Continue reading →
Recently I went to the hairdresser and was telling her that my hair is easily weighed down and doesn’t have much volume despite using volumising shampoo. I was shocked when she told me I don’t need to use as much … Continue reading →
I must admit, this is a product I have seen loads of times whilst browsing for face masks before but wasn’t attracted to. I don’t know if its because I wasn’t familiar with the brand or just that the packaging … Continue reading →
First of all Happy New Year to my followers! Apologies for the lack of posts, I have been away on holiday and things have been hectic! Anyway, the end of the year always brings out the ‘best of’ posts from … Continue reading →
