#BEAUTY | Grapefruit coffee scrub with Bean Burst

Hello hello! How cool is it that we can use natural everyday ingredients like coffee to cleanse our skin?

I got sent this wonderful smelling package from Bean Burst and im going to share with you my messy results haha
 I picked the grapefruit scented one, which to my suprise smelt just like grapefruit with a tad bit of orange and also smelt like chocolate. The coffee smell of course was there and strong but the blend of it all together smelt edible. 

Why grapefruit?

"Grapefruit Essential Oil stimulates the body and mind. Its antiseptic and antioxidant properties boost the immune system by fighting free radicals and protecting the body from toxins. This uplifting oil helps to alleviate stress and clear congested skin."

 I used my scrub in the bath (the messy option) LOL but i did feel like it refreshed my skin after i used it and it also felt nice on my skin!

I applied it to my damp hands and then i rubbed it all over my body and face and let it sit for a few minutes. It smelt DIVINE! Then i continued to rub it off and in to my skin. It left my skin really smooth and kinda of oily, not like drenached in oil but as if it had added back the moisture and oils my body had lost!

Here are some benefits of the ingredients!

Caffeine: Antioxidant. Tightens. Firms.
Himalayan pink salt: Anti-microbial. Antiseptic. Healing properties.
Coconut Oil: Anti-ageing. Anti-bacterial. Moisturiser. Vitamin E.
Apricot Kernel Oil: Anti-inflammatory. Antioxidant. Vitamin E. High in fatty acids.
Jojoba Oil: Regulates skin PH. Anti-inflammatory. Vitamin B and E.
Marula Oil: Antioxidant. High in Vitamin C. Healing properties.
Grapefruit Oil: Anti-septic. Anti-depressant. Antioxidant. Boosts immune system. Relieves stress.

I love using this as part of my skin routine as it slips into it real easy!

Will you be trying this ?

#BEAUTY | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 eyeshadows + NEW concealer

In my bid to do a full face of affordable and decent makeup, I went on a shopping trip to gather my items....and of course to grab that concealer the whole beauty world is talking about (or so it seems) so my trip was a disappointing one as the store I went to was near enough empty of makeup revolution :( so I bought this flawless 4 eyeshadow kit and concealer and intend to buy other bits like foundation, brow and lip products etc somewhere else. For the time being though I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette.
The colours are stunning, I'm actually so happy at how high street brands are really good quality for the money, I believe this palette was £6. I was drawn to the pinks and reds and of course the shimmer shades, both being really pigmented. There is a bit of fallout but mostly in the darker colours. There is a good range of mattes and shimmers and saying that also a good range of crease colours and lid colours.

The concealer which is being compared to tartes shape t…

#BEAUTY | Faux Mink Lashes for a Natural/Flattering Look

Lashes don't always have to be worn just for a dramatic effect, they can also be worn to accentuate your eye in a natural yet defining way. I don't wear falsies everyday ( if you do you do it?!) but sometimes when my mood permits me to wear them on an average day I go for a natural/wispy lash or just an accent lash for the outer part of my eye. Buying lashes isn't as an easy job as you may think, you really have to consider the brand due to mink lashes! Luckily I can present to you a brand which have just brought out a line of faux mink lashes as well as their other natural lashes. From fluffy, natural and salon style see how you can get the look below! All lashes from Kiss
Faux Mink - LBD Lash
Give me all the Hollywood starlet glam! I cant help but feel like Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor in these lashes. They are fluffy, wispy yet add a little drama. This lash can be re-used up to 10 times if you look after them im sure they will last even longer than that. T…

#BEAUTY| Hair colour restore at home w/ Scott Cornwall

As a box dye girl through and through I'm very welcoming to try new brands, colours and different coverage techniques that are offered.
I got a lovely bit of blogger mail from a brand called Scott Cornwall, it came in such a beautiful box and I was the worst blogger ever and didn't take photos of the box..and if I did I just simply cant find them! Because in all truth I got this package a while ago but I wanted to wait until any other recent dyes I had on my hair had grown out so I could see the results in full effect. Now I think of it there may be a photo of the box on my blog facebook page *hmm*.

As a brunette I got the chocolate brown colour but I also got a deep red colour if I was feeling like a change! I used the chocolate brown colour of course :)
The dye is not permanent but instead it is a colour restore for faded hair, or I like to think its a colour that can keep your hair looking glossy and coloured in the in-between times of when you have coloured your hair and…
