#SKINCARE | Crabtree & Evelyn Body Duo's - White Cardamom / Cocoon & Pomegranate





If you are looking for a gift that gives comfort and indulgence for your body, here it is. I feel like this cream is so nourishing it penetrates all layers of my skin. As much as I wanted to re- gift this because it is so beautiful, I had to try it out for my blog so I can tell you whether to buy it or not!
The smell is something I cannot describe, it is so spicy and long lasting I love it. Here is a quote from their website describing the smell

The scent is an unexpected delicate combination of sweet iced vanilla, mid-winter mimosa, and mulled spice essences of cardamom.

I could tell that the scrub had sugar in it because of the texture of the grains, and that is something I really like as it is a natural ingredient not like the plastic beads that harm the environment. It really is a luxurious scrub, it feels so silky smooth when you rub it on and gets rid of dead skin and dirt :) the cream is also smooth on application, they are a true dream duo. 




The Pomegranate and Argan Oil range is a lot more sweeter than the Cardamom one, it is just as moisturising and luxurious. Which I have come to notice is what Crabtree and Evelyn is all about. The scents are really uplifting as they are super strong and well lasting. This fragrance is described as ..

Warm Mediterranean fruit notes of orange, juicy pomegranate and sweet fig mingle with the heat of ginger and black pepper spice.


As gifts these really wont disappoint as they are beautifully packaged and gloriously fancy! If you are buying as a gift I would browse the website as they have plenty of scents to suit everyone. As for price, they range from £19 up to £30 per item, but as a gift you cannot complain and if you are buying for yourself they do go a long way...so don't think you are paying for a small amount!

#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…
