L'Oreal Fine Flowers Gel Wash♥

Well, lets all admit we want 'perfect' skin? I am forever trying to look after my skin. Make it less dry, make it glow and all that jazz. Well, if you read my skincare routine here you'll know i added a new face wash into my routine.

I have really been loving the difference this makes in my skin. It leaves my skin feeling so clean, fresh and soft to touch. I have really sensitive skin and this doesn't aggravate it at all. It has a really light scent - quite flowery. As this is designed to use on dry and sensitive skin, it's perfect for me. It really easily removes any last traces of make up that haven't been removed with cleansing and gets rid of any build up in your pores too.

Favourite Bloggers♥

Something a little different today. i want to shine a spotlight on some of my favourite blogs to read so they can get the recognition they deserve. sometimes the blogging community really can feel isolated but these girls restore my faith in it. So, please give their blogs a read and leave me comments with your favourites too - lets have the most positive blog post of all time.

Sophia Meola - Sophia is such a lovely girl and an amazing blogger. Her posts are always written so i feel like I'm sat in bed with my best friends chatting about anything and everything. She also seems to have perfected the art of the flat lay photo - you go girl. Keep smashing it. 

Gemma - Ever since i started blogging and even before, i have read Gemmas blog. Her posts are always informative and always packed with beautiful taken photos. She is one of the kindest people you will ever speak to too so please give her a read for some very in-depth reviews to find your new favourite products.

Tea Party with Alice -  Well, Alice's writing has made me want to emigrate to Australia. She clearly puts a lot of thought into how she writes and you really get a nice varied bunch of posts with her. Imaginative writing and a genuinely nice person? Winner winner. 

Amy -  I love her fashion posts - love her style. Also a fellow music lover which is a big thing too. I'm not the biggest reader of fashion blogs (as i have next to no style besides 'black everything') but hers give me serious outfit envy.

Bourjois Ooh La Velvet! Lip Kit Plum Plum Girl ♥

Is it just me who loves a good lip kit? Maybe I'm just a bad beauty blogger but  i love it when a brand puts a lipstick and a lip liner together in a kit for me. Makes it a lot easier for me than searching for hours for a lip liner that is the correct shade. Well, now Autumn/Winter has come in, it's time for the dark vampy shades to come back out which is my personal favourite part of this time of year. What can i say? I like to make a statement. 

In the Bourjois Ooh La Velvet! Lip Kit (14 Plum Plum Girl) you get two full sized products: Contour Edition Lip Liner in Plum it up!  and Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick in Plum Plum Girl. Bourjois really do make a lovely vampy lipstick. The liner is really soft and smooth. No dragging or pulling and stays really well on your lips. The liquid lipstick is creamy and dries to a matte finish which i like at this time of year. Thankfully, the applicator is not massive so it's very easy to get the perfect shape to your pout without looking like a clown. For me, average wear time is a couple of hours (while drinking and eating) before i want to reapply to make sure the colour is still even. Like all Bourjois products, they have a really light fresh scent to them that's really pleasant. 

Want to make a statement with a bold lip without breaking the bank? Have a try of these lip kits!

Maybelline Master Blush Palette ♥

We all know what i'm like, i can't resist a blush. Its probably one of my favourite make up items to buy along with lipstick as there is such a variety and it can really change up a look. I must own a million by now. So, when i was browsing the aisles of Boots a few weeks ago and i saw this little blush palette i couldn't resist popping it into my basket. 

The Maybelline Master Blush Color & Highlighting Kit is a really lovely little high street blush palette. It comes with 3 blushes and 1 highlight shade. The 3 shades of blush are lovely and diverse. You have a hot pink, a dark burgundy and a light peach-coral. The highlight is a champagne colour too. The colours are surprisingly pigmented too - they showed up so quickly with very little product which is always a great bonus. Staying power is good - lasting me my full working day without disappearing at all. The packaging is really nice and sturdy too - definitely feels a lot more expensive than it is. I've been loving this and it's a product i can see myself using throughout the year due to the different shades on offer. All in all, a good little palette for a very good price point.

October 2017 Favourites ♥

Is it really November already? This year is flying by, it's going to be Christmas before i know it and i swear it was New Year the other day? Anyway, a start of a new month always means a monthly favourites post from the month before, so keep reading to find out what i have been loving in October.

Its only a short one this time as I've switching up my routines this month adding and trialling new products. For skincare, I've been loving the L'Oreal Fine Flowers Gel Cream Wash as you can really feel the difference after using it. It leaves your face feeling so clean and fresh but doesn't aggravate my sensitive skin at all.  Another skincare favourite for October is the Olay Double action Night Cream which has really saved my skin this month. This really has kept as much moisture in my skin as possible and kept it feeling soft and strong. I've been having trouble with some dry patches around my nose and since adding this into my routine, haven't seen them at all since! 

Onto make up, as always i cannot put my Urban Decay Naked3 Palette down. It's just so great for everyday looks as well as going out ones too. I always have this close by so i can grab it on the go. Would not wan to be without this! Last but not least, is the Spectrum Small Fan Brush which is a godsend. This applies highlighter so well. It looks really natural on the skin and subtle. It's also probably the most gorgeous brush i have ever seen and at such an affordable price? Gimme gimme gimme.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer ♥

Lets be honest, i rave about the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, a lot. I've been using it for years and its easily one of my top three foundations (full review here). I also like to use the matching concealer which i had recently run out of and had to repurchase if you saw my latest haul post.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer is a little bottle of heaven. For me, this concealer/foundation has one of the best formula's. It's light and creamy, and doesn't feel cake at all on my skin. It doesn't cling to my dry patches either which is a big plus in my book. Together, the coverage is medium to full, but easily build able. They also have a good selection of shades for me as I'm quite pale i find some brands (especially on the high street) either make me too orange or too pale. This shade is just right for me. I mostly use this under my eyes to cover my dark circles and around my nose / any problem areas currently. It easily covers redness and dark spots. Bourjois claim these are 'Anti-Fatigue' which I'd say they are to a point. I'd say they definitely give off a healthy glow to the skin but nothing will stop me looking tired except a good nap. 

Wear time is good, lasting me my full working day (8am to 6pm) easily without needing to be touched up at all. 

If you're looking for a high street concealer, especially for under your eyes i would recommend this one. Whenever someone asks what my favourite product from Bourjois is i always say the Healthy Mix range.

E45 Intense Recovery Body Lotion ♥

Its getting back to that time of year again, when the weather is awful and my skin goes really dry. I try to take good care of my body/skin as I'm prone to really dry skin and eczema which isn't exactly pleasant. So over the years I've found what works for me and what doesn't.

I have always loved E45 creams since i was a kid. Body lotion for me is a must - especially on my arms and my chest where my skin gets the most dry. The E45 Intense Recovery Body Lotion is lovely - it sinks into the skin so quickly leaving my skin feeling nourished, hydrated and not at all greasy. I hate body lotions which take too much time to sink in so the fact this is speedy is a big plus for me. It doesn't really have a smell - which is the only drawback for me as i do love a good scented body lotion. But this has really helped clear up the dry patches i get - especially around elbows/knees/shoulders. I normally apply this in the morning and evening on freshly washed and towelled dry skin. Thankfully, it doesn't break the bank either and is very affordable. i would recommend this to anyone having trouble with their skin being dry this A/W.
