The Best Face Mask For Unhappy, Dull Skin

IMG_20170526_154658_631OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIMG_20170526_155311_438-1I’m not sure if it’s the exposure to the air pollution or the dust and general grubbiness of the underground, but every time I arrive home after having spent time in London, my skin always looks lacklustre and, well, just a bit unhappy. My skin is very good, very normal and so I knew that when three spots suddenly emerged a couple of weeks ago after spending a couple of days in the Capital, I needed to help my poor skin rid itself of the dirt and grime festering beneath the service! Coincidentally, it just so happened that the lovely PR team at The Body Shop had sent over the new(ish) Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask for me to try out; so my unhappy skin and three spots were really a blessing in disguise because I could test out just how well the mask really worked!

The Makeup & Skincare Anti-Haul

anti haul 2

Getting a bit tired of the excessive consumerism that’s being perpetually thrown in our faces by various bloggers and youtubers who seemingly have a money tree growing in their back garden? All joking aside, I love the concept behind these anti-hauls that promote mindful consumerism and throw bubble-head consumerism outta the window! And as a side note, my ‘anti-hauling’ of these products doesn’t reflect how I feel about each of the brands featured; for example, NARS is probably my fave brand of all time and my Hourglass highlighter is my fave one of all time, but these particular products just don’t cut the mustard for me.

An In-Depth Review Of The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid + B5 & How It Works


I’m sure this brand needs no introduction from me as it’s seemingly taken both the beauty world and blogosphere by storm, but in case you’re still in the dark about The Ordinary, I’ll give you the low down on what it’s all about! This brand sits under the Deciem umbrella, but their simplistic formulas and back-to-basics, no frills approach and packaging means that their products are incredibly affordable, if a little hard to navigate. If you’re not into your skincare and aren’t very knowledgeable about ingredients and formulas, trying to navigate your way through these products will be like a walk in the dark for you, but if you’re willing to do a little research, it could mean magical things for your skin!

The Beauty Products I’d Repurchase Time & Time Again


I’d just like to quickly preface this video by saying that there are a couple of products that although sadly couldn’t be here for this flatlay because they’ve made it in to the recycling bin, would be repurchase-ees within a heartbeat; for example, my Body Shop chamomile cleansing butter has been dispatched for delivery today! I also decided against including any body related products as we’d be here all day – I have enough shower gels, body scrubs and butters to pamper the 5,000. Continue reading

A Spring Beauty Wishlist

beauty wishlist final

As ever, and unfortunately for my bank balance, my beauty wishlist is long, ever-growing and spiralling out of control; however, I am very good with my money and saving it, so I’m not too worried just yet! As much as I would love to be able to purchase all of the above, car insurance, fuel and my ridiculously pricey contact lens prescription have to take priority, but I really do love reading wishlist posts so I hope that you do too!
