#BEAUTY | Skincare haul with Chemist.co.uk

My continued love for all things skincare has lovingly been fulfilled by chemist.co.uk, I have teamed up with them to bring you some products that I have used before and recommend and some others I haven't and are pleasantly surprised by.

I hadn't shopped at chemist.co.uk before, so my guess was they sold the kind of items you would find in a chemist. On the website there are various medicines you can buy and also skincare and toiletry items that you would usually find in a chemist but for a fraction of the price.
I never normally shop in actual chemists for skincare items as they tend to be a lot more dearer than say Superdrug or a superstore but this online chemist is similar to the Superdrug prices.

I guess I'm going to talk you through the bits I got now :)

Derma V10 body butter (coconut)
I don't usually tend to reach for body butters as I sometimes find them a little bit greasy, but it  was only right that I gave this one a try. I used it a couple of times and focused it on my legs and arms rather than anywhere else on my body. I liked it on my legs as it is very thick and creamy and makes you feel very nourished. I'm not about having thick creams all  over my body though, so using it in moderation is fine for me :) the smell gives me holiday beach vibes!


Neutrogena Visual Clear Treatment gel
Luckily for me I had some spots on my face so I could try this out haha not really luck but hey ho ^_^ I am a bit sceptical of spot treatments as I'm rather old fashioned about them, I either leave them to it or dab on a bit of toothpaste. I don't like to put a load of different chemicals on my skin when it has broken out, but saying that I am glad I tried this product out as I think it is actually works. It turns into a gel (pretty self explanatory from the name aha) and kind of acts as a barrier for the spot. Of course it didn't make my spots disappear but they did look less visible and not so prominent . Perfect if you are on your way to an important event and you break out!


MUDD original mask deep cleansing clay formula
As a mask lover I was not so fanatic about this one, its a clay formula. Clay formulas are such a pain to wash off. Or maybe I'm just so lazy, I like to put my mask and then be able to peel it off. I find if I scrub myself after a clay mask it makes my skin sore and red from the pressure of the scrubbing. I didn't feel this mask personally made my skin any different :( the good  thing was it was easy to apply! Also the way a mask works depends on the skin type that you are.


The last 2 items I got was the blueberry lip balm by Nivea and a Melrose stick. The lip balm I love, its super hydrating on the lips and has a tint of pink/lilac shade, it also smells delicious! The Melrose stick is as equally as good for dry areas of my skin, and so easy to apply as it is a stick form!

 

I'm so glad I have come across this site to be fair, not only does it stock a large variety of items but the price is also super low on items that are high in price in the actual brick and mortar chemists!

#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..how 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…
