#SKINCARE | REN Perfect Canvas Serum

REN is a brand I’ve only been familiar with for a short while, and although I see it most days where I work I never really had the urge to use it due to my stubborn thoughts that it is just like any other skincare brand. Sceptical Sarah for you. But after attending a training session all about REN skincare, the story behind it and a deeper look at the ingredients I decided I should really give it a go and quickly took back my stereotypical thoughts.
REN recently launched a new product called: The perfect canvas finishing serum, which I was lucky enough to get a whole bottle of my own from the training session to try. My first thoughts were how aesthetically pleasing the bottle was, it looks clean, it’s the right size for the hand and has an easy to use dropper applicator. To touch it feels super smooth, I feel like that’s just a taster of what it feels like on the skin!


 Now, I had been using a few of REN’s other products hand in hand with using the Perfect Canvas and on some occasions, I just used the product on its own under my usual moisturiser. Not to say the other products don’t work (I will be doing a separate post on the other products I used) but I noticed that it looked just as good, maybe even better just using the perfect canvas with no other products than just a moisturiser that works for you. The saying goes, less is more, and here I think that’s the case. I think it’s quite a revelation that I may have found just ONE product that helps create the “perfect canvas”.

I have big pores, which to me is my biggest concern...it’s just the thing that bothers me. When I apply the serum, I feel like I genuinely shrinks my pores ^-^ I normally apply 2-3 drops on to my hands, then press it onto my face and neck, after I have moisturised and let it dry. As it is a serum it is a wonderful consistency, quite sticky to touch after you apply as it’s a primer, but I like the feeling of that zing of tightness. Once it dries my skin honestly feels instantly hydrated, glowy and oh-so smooth…the smoothness is insane. It is like that of a primer but 100x better!

On the occasions I wear makeup on top of the serum I feel my makeup sits so much better, like its more at one with my skin rather than it being a film. It does also tend to last a lot longer than if I wear it without, I tend to have trouble with bronzer staying on as I’m probably touching my face constantly throughout the day...but I have noticed without even thinking about it, that my bronzer is still in place after the days end.

As it is still very much a skincare product than just a primer, I believe it makes your skin not just look better but it makes it better.


 Have you tried the Perfect Canvas?

#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…
