#BEAUTY | Skincare tips for combination skin

Hello January/February! I want to say I cant believe how fast January has gone, but its only been the last week that it seemed to have whizzed by. The weather is once again getting involved in my skincare routine and I have to change what products I have been using. 


I have been drowning myself in Mac's strobe cream more than anything since the sun went into hiding. Im pretty certain MAC superfans will have this as their all time staple for the perfect glowy base. It is quite the little miracle and can add a woken up look to the dullest skin. I think its worth the little investment if you're into glowy skin.


La Roche-Posay is somewhat of a new brand for me. Having first tried it out as another blogger recommended it. I have got their makeup remover which I spoke about in my recent youtube vid. This anti pore matt moisturiser I have started using as I like the consistency of it, its more of a serum. It can be used as a base for the skin as it has a little tacky feel to it. I love it because it helps my skin to be less oily without it drying out my skin. So it brings me the right balance. This brand is fab if you have sensitive skin btw.


Just arrived the other day was this REN glow gel cream I ordered and I have used it a few times, I love the light consistency of it. I wanted the cream version as I do have the glow tonic, which I prefer to use in the summer. This is a bit better for the winter as it has more coverage and hydrates the skin. It says it also protects against pollution which is a bonus for us Londoners ha!

Let me know what your tips for combination skin are!
XOXO

#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| 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…

Vape Shoreditch x discount code!

A little something new on Just Sarah XOXO! Usually you see makeup, fashion and all things "girly" but i like to keep you on your toes and mix it up a bit.  Me personally, i am not a smoker but  i can be partial to a bit of flavoured smoke  Just as a side note, these ones do contain nicotine. I think the popularisation of these kind of e-cigerattes came about when smoking was banned in public places like pubs, cafes etc and also can be a big help in quitting the smoking habit if thats what you want.
When it concerns flavoured e-liquid i think some people just like them for a different taste, just as a lot of people enjoy shisha (basically the same thing but without the big ol' pipe) so when i stumbled upon Vape Shoreditch i was  just super excited when i saw their flavour range!! Take a look for yourself here.
Flavours include - Apple pie Bubblegum Parma violet Gummy bear! Lime sorbet Peach
 & many more!
if those flavours dont get your tastebuds a tingling then i don…
