#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 | MY favourite lashes....like ever!

Yesss i am a lash addict...even if im not wearing them i am hoarding them. Here are a few of my faves, most of them will be wispy, invisi band lashes with the odd OTT lashes as i do like my lashes to look as real as possible. Huda Beauty : Scarlett lash - h'omg, these lashes are the ultimate out there lash. They really give me the old hollywood glamour feels and really make your eyes pop. I love these as a high end, luxury lash as they are very pricey!! But 100% worth it. Lash Unlimited : DBL range - i always loved the original range from this brand  the #7 and #9 are so so pretty so when they brought out the DBL range i was really blown away, the lashes are more thicker and have like a double layer and some of the styles remind me of the lilly ghalichi lashes! These lashes are great quality for the low price! Nouveau Lashes : Natural/ Style 3 - Being a member of the #LashGang makes me a little biased here! Well, i say that but im not re

#REVIEW | Ammonia FREE hair dye w/ NATURIGIN

There are a lot of hair dyes on the current market and when i am shopping for one i tend to normally stick to one or two brands, more than anything it is to do with price rather than being about a brand i love. All hair dyes have a variety of colours and there ist much else that sets them apart, so for me i am easily swayed and will give most brands a go! Enter... NATURIGIN . This posts is actually a little overdue, sorry guys! I met the lovely people behind the brand at the blogger hangout event which you can read HERE and they told me the wonders about the hair dye. Basically the biggest selling point or best asset shall i say of this product is the fact that it is ammonia free and organic based! The dye itself is free of ammonia, which means it doesnt have the smell of a chemical lab!! I was so pleased and pleasently suprised with the smell of the dye. I really had no idea what to expect but it wasnt at all that strong bleachy smell it was so much more toned down.
