#SKINCARE | My Skin Story With Dermalogica - precleanse, cleanser, superfoliant, soothing cream


Hello my lovely readers,

If you prefer the spoken word then I do have a YouTube video with my first impressions and how I used these products in my skincare routine, all links are on my blog.
But I did have a little trouble with the audio and the timings of the speech so I didn't feel I could fit everything I wanted to say on the video , alas my blog post

Just to recap, I got sent this Dermalogica box via Influenster which is a site for bloggers to review items they have used and to be also in with a chance of getting sent stuff to review free of charge.

I was actually glad for two reasons that I got sent this Dermalogica box
1) I had never tried anything from this brand beforehand
2) my skin of late has been feeling like an abandoned umbrella on a rainy day 

my skin is oily to combination, mostly an oily t -zone and I do get dry patches here and there through out the cold season

The two products which I found to be most useful to me were the pre-cleanse balm (came with the mitt) and the moisturiser, I say this because I do moisturise everyday sometimes 3x a day and I do like to use a thick product like the pre cleanse balm to clean my face ( it also has a lovely lavender smell ) Both of the products was hydrating to my skin without making it oily and created a healthy glow.
The cream claims to basically combat outer worldly pollution, so like a filter on the face and it contains arnica, aloe and cucumber; I love the fact it has arnica in as it is used to cool bruises and has a real refreshing / calming feeling to it.

I already use a glycol scrub from Nip and Fab for exfoliating and for my skin type that works really well, so I wasn't overly fussed shall I say about the daily superfoliant . I think it is a cool concept of mixing the power with water to create a paste type mask thing , but I also felt its a it of a fuss to do that.....in reality its me being lazy aha

like I mentioned in my video I wouldn't recommend the cleansing gel, as it made my skin feel tight and dry-ish, it isn't so bad if you do moisturise with a thick cream after but If you are planning to just cleanse it will leave your face feeling dry and tight. Again it may work well on other skin types, but for me it didn't


I am really looking in to trying some of the other products, which may be more suited to my skin type. Let me know if you have tried any or recommend any!

#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…
