#BEAUTY | A hair care range for dandruff sufferers

So, i have been trying the "care taker" range from noughty hair care which is specifically for sensitive scalps and also targets dandruff sufferers like myself. For those of us who do suffer with dandruff we know how irritating it is. Not only is it non stop itching grrrrrrrr but we have to deal with the snowflake look...self-explanitary right? also if you have darker hair like me it makes is much more noticable. 

So, why is this different to ant other range you ask? what about head and shoulders? or those medicated shampoo?

well, unlike those medicated shampoos you  can also get, this range actually smells divine due to the ingredients. (also how PRETTY is the design of the bottles <3)

 The shampoo has oat extract in the ingredients which i know from experience is super good for dry skin, yet i have not until now tried it on my scalp. It does have an oaty smell which i looooove and lathers up in the hair real nice.

The conditioner has extracts of olive oil which is great for nourishment and softness, what more could you ask for in a conditioner?!

I have been using this for a few weeks now and i am totally impressed with the results, my head is genuinley a lot less itchy...i feel like the other hair care ranges that i have used in the past may have had chemicals in them that irritated my scalp. I always seem to come to the conclusion that any hair care range that contains natural ingredients are so much gentler on my scalp and hair.

I also think they are worth the money, they will be a bit more expensive than most hair care ranges but its worth it if it sorts out your itchy scalp and dandruff problem!

Side note : how amazing is it that they dont test on animals like bambi, lassie or skippy. hehe, i lovethat attention to detail and that it is a vegan, non- animal testing product.

Let this range take care of your sensitive scalp and help nourish your hair too! Im intrested to also try some of the other ranges and see what benefits they will bring to my hair.

They are avaliable to purchase at Superdrug :)

#MAKEUP | My base makeup favourites // High Street

Like most of my posts, i was meant to write them months ago *gulps* this one in particular has been in my drafts for over 3 months!!! SAY WHAT?! i know, im so ashamed myself...but lets focus on the positives...i have been using these products for over 3 months and can give you firm and truthful reviews on them :) 

None of these items have been gifted, all have been bought with my own money albeit months ago and most of these purchases were made on blogger recommendations!

I am THE worst at colour matching my skin and getting the correct colour foundation hence why i dont wear it much as im either super pale or Donald Trump orange ....oh gosh .. please NO lets not talk about DT - the new president of America *exits 2016*..

I picked up the Maybelline FIT me foundation in shade 120 for normal to oily skin, with a matte finish. The shade actually isnt too bad but i still feel it has a slight orangey undertone. As consistency goes it is easy to apply and blend out, i use a brush to buff it in and then i blend it out more with a beauty blender.
It does last for a good few hours but i wouldnt say the coverage is full, i would say more medium to full. But i do love that it doesnt feel heavy on my skin.

I also have pictured the Maybelline super stay 24 hours setting spray of which when i first got it i was really impressed, as on the high street i find it hard to cocme by setting sprays BUT recently when i have been using it i realised it sometimes leaves a light white powdery residue on the skin....maybe i didnt shake the bottle hard sure i have been now i have mixed feelings about it :(
The Maybelline FIT me concealer has been compared to the blogger favourite NARS creamy concealer so many times and it is true that it is a really good dupe for it. It is my go to concealer and i really love the consistency and the colour. It blends really well and doesnt make the pores look big!

I didnt realise all of these products were Maybelline haha! Again this concealer is a blogger favourite and i also hold it in high esteem. I like the colour again and also the consistency of this, its a bit more thicker than the Fit me concealer and i use it a lot for my under eye concealer and under my brows to clean up my brows if i fill them in. I dont know if im so in love with the little sponge applicator though!

A few colour and consistency swatches shown here.

Have you used any of these products?

#BEAUTY | My #BROWgame secret

If you dont see at least 5 brows that you wish you had whist scrolling through instagram once a day then what even are your brow goals *cries*
Brow envy has literally gone through the roof since the brow product game changed, and although i do love those perfect brows that you see everrrryy girl on instagram has, i dont much fancy being part of that group and being so identical to everyone else. 

I much prefer a messy Gigi Hadid brow. So how i achieve those brows is pretty straight forward.
This not-so secret product from Nouveau Lashes is what i use. It is a lash and brow conditioning serum so you can also achieve a more fuller looking lash look by using it on your lashes too!

I simply brush through my brows with a spooly, apply a little bit of brow pencil (not always) and then use this product and brush my brow hairs upwards to create that messy look. I also love the messy look because you have an excuse not to pluck your brows #lazygang #notimegang

You can keep this little bad boy in your bag and keep applying it a few times a day because it also helps to nourish the brow hairs! 

You can purchase it here : 

How do you have your brows?!
