Simple Moisture Boost Hydro Cream Review.

On Thursday my mum and i went to Stratford so she could go and get a fish pedicure. It was very weird to watch and not my thing so i didn’t get my feet done but they completely take off all your dead skin! They are amazing my mums feet were super soft afterwards! Some people don’t like the idea of these fish pedicures as they think they are ‘dirty’ but the tanks are thoroughly filtered and cleaned out regularly. Heres a rubbish iphone snap i took..

We also went for a little shop after and i was in need of a new moisturiser. My skin has been feeling dreadful recently as i think its because i don't drink water. So i went to Superdrug and picked up The Simple Kind To Skin Moisture Boost Hydro Cream as this new product looked like it would work on my skin type. It has a perfect blend of active ingredients and lotus flower goodness to give dehydrated tired and dull skin a boost of hydration! It also contains 2 vital vitamins which are pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E. And as always this Simple product contains no perfume and no colour.  I really do like this product and i would recommend it to you if your skin is dull and is in need of moisture as it sinks into the skin very quickly in areas that need it most, i will admit that if you do put too much product on it can make your face feel oily! But the product has been clinically proven to carry on working for 24hrs and its also has UVA/UVB protection.

Have any of my lovely followers ever had a fish pedicure or tried this wonderful hydro cream? Opinions? Thanks for readingg! xxx

Inside Kendall and Kylie’s Beauty Bags.

Here is a link below to check out what beauty products Kendall and Kylie Jenner have in their beauty bag! I thought this was interesting to post because if you watch the Kardashians or like them you’ll love these two beauties and its always interesting to see what products they use to get the flawless skin they're always seen with. Of course they have a budge of anything but the do use Mac, Smashbox and Clinique products.

Personally i think its outrageous that they are using eye cream that does prevent wrinkles at the ages of 14 and 15. Is it just me that thinks that crazy? I do have a few eye wrinkles at but they are my smile lines! Not only does Kylie Jenner use eye cream she applies hand cream morning and night to prevent her hands getting wrinkly! As much as i love these two girls i do think they need to like a little!

What do all of you think about the products the Jenner’s use? Thanks for reading xxx

Extra Virgin Minerals Make-Up!

The Body Shop have realised a new line of products early online! ‘Extra Virgin Minerals’ They are three different types of foundations, a Liquid foundation, a cream to powder and a mineral powder each giving ‘immaculate complexion’ They are formulated with pure minerals, they’re ultra-bendable and give a flawless finish. ‘Skin looks and feels immaculate. Hallelujah!’


Fresh Extra Virgin Mineral Liquid Foundation comes in 8 different shades and sells for £14.00. Pure minerals and extra-virgin olive oil in an easy-to-blend liquid base. Gives a fresh, even finish, contains SPF 30

Radiant Extra Virgin Mineral Loose Powder Foundation again comes in 8 different shades and sells for £15.00. This feather light ultra fine pure mineral powder base gives a radiant, natural-looking finish and can be built up for extra coverage. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. Gives a radiant finish, covers imperfections and fine lines,is dermatologically tested and also contains SPF 25.

Matte Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation again comes in 8 shades and sells for £16.00. This cream-to-powder ultra-pure mineral foundation contains pure minerals and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil for an immaculate, matte finish. It has an ultra-bendable formula and contains a custom brush for flawless application. It gives a medium to full coverage, a smooth matte finish,  contains SPF 15, and is fragrance & paraben-free (for me paraben free is very good!!)

Im unsure about these products. I definitely think they are very interesting containing extra virgin olive oil and im not sure how that would work on an oily skin. But i may go and purchase the Mineral Cream Compact as it wins me over that its paraben free! (horray!) What do you all think about these? Will you be trying them?

The body shop are currently offering free standard delivery on orders over £25. They are also offering a free gift collection when you spend £30.

Favourite Gloss

I thought i would show you my lip glosses i wear all the time. As its meant to be summer (if you live in the UK try not to blink else you will miss it) i love wearing nude shades, ones that give a tiny bit of colour to your lips but not loads so they still look natural. These are the ones i like the best, ones that stay on my lips for a long time without reapplying and ones that suit my skin tone. I do recommend all of these, if i had to pick any out of these it would be No7 Liplicious and Rimmel London Stay Glossy as these feel so nice on the lips and i adore these colours!


Barry M Lip Gloss shade 12
Natural Collection shade Barley Sugar
Rimmel London Mirror Shine Lipgloss shade 210 Sun Queen
Rimmel London Stay Glossy shade has worn off but i believe it is 120 Non Stop Glamour
Rimmel London Stay Glossy shade 180 Eternal Flirt
No7 Liplicious doesn’t state the shade
No7 Liplicous again, doesn’t state the shade

Have you got any of these lip glosses in your favourites collection? If so tell me what you think! Thanks for reading!xxx

On Wednesday i received a lovely package from MySoap containing two lovely bars of there top selling soap which were Fresh Rose Butter Soap and Elderflower Grapefruit and Apricot.

MySoap are Luxury Organic Soaps made entirely by hand using the finest natural ingredients sourced from all over the world. We use traditional soap making methods which retain all of the natural skin conditioning glycerine normally removed from mass manufactured soaps. We use natural plant oils, extracts. botanicals, essential oils and each recipe is generously formulated to be rich, mild on your skin and long lasting. We use Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Hemp Oil, Sunflower Oil, Corn Oil and generous helpings of creamy Cocoa and Shea Butters. All of the wonderful scents from our soaps are provided by the additions of essential oils. We do not use synthetic fragrances, detergents or commercially manufactured soap bases and of course, we do not test our soaps on animals, they've got enough trouble to be dealing with as it is! MySoap Handmade soaps are suitable for vegetarians and vegans too and our production methods are low impact and environmentally friendly, we aim to produce little or no waste.

I love these bars of soap and i’m so glad i got the opportunity to try them! They are heavily sentenced and the scent transfers and lasts on your skin. They are not overpowering they are just right. Not only do they smell good they look gorgeous as well. Mysoap has many benefits, the products are organic, they do not test there products on animals – and for me that's something which is so important, and they are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The came beautifully packages, and you can tell they were sent with care. I honestly can’t find anything back to say about these soaps! I will definitely be buying some they are just great.

Elderflower, Grapefruit and Apricot - A delicate tonic bar made with an infusion of creamy Elderflowers, essential oils of Pink Grapefruit, Tangerine and nourishing Apricot. A tad of Patchouli Oil makes this bar one of our favourites.

Fresh Rose Butter Soap - A gorgeous Rose bud studded soap bar with a superbly rich and creamy recipe containing dollops of moisturising Cocoa Butter and regenerating Shea Butter. Perfumed with a heady flowery blend of Rose Geranium, Petitgrain and sexy Ylang Ylang essential oils and speckled with Ground Rosehips to exfoliate your skin.

You can find MySoap on twitter @my_soap and they also have a website that is coming soon at you can find it here. They also have a market stall in Camden, London so you all should go check them out :)

MySoap have not sent me these products to review they sent me them so i can enjoy them but as i loved them it would be rude not to share them with fellow beauty bloggers.

Glam Eyes!!

The other day when i bought my Garnier Anti-Dark Circle my mums boyfriend treated me to a lovely new mascara which was the Rimmel London Day 2 Night so here is my review on it.

What Rimmel say about the product: our first mascara that creates two dramatically different lash looks with just one brush. The secret is the magic double cap! Multi-tasking 2 in 1 defined length/intense volume mascara. Top cap: exceptionally defined and ultra-lengthened lashes. Bottom cap: thickens lashes with voluptuous, oversized volume. No clumps.

Why i like it? I like this product because it is actua;;y true to what iy says it does. It creates two different lash looks with in the one mascara. I was abit weary whether to buy this mascara or now as i thought it would be rubbish, that it would create a clumpy look with both brushes. How wrong was i? If i use the lengthening cap ut truely makes my lashes long and defined. If i team it with the volume cap it makes them think and dark without the clumps – very ideal for when you want your lashes to be noticed. I also think the packaging is great, very eye catching and noticeable. As well as retailing for £7.99 at Boots, whilst getting a free gift when spending over £6 on selected Rimmel products or alternatively you can get it at Superdrug for the same price without the free gift! It is a brilliant affordable high street mascara that i do recommend!

If any of my readers live near a Mac counter and would like to do me a massive favour please comment or email me!

Yesterday i got a parcel and it was a parcel i had been waiting for a whole week! Not long i know but when your looking forward to it the week drags on! So what was the parcel? Its was my Urban Decay Naked Palette!! It lived up to my expectations! Im actually in love with it, i love all the natural colours they’re colour i would wear on a daily basis.

What Urban Decay say about the product.. You can look great NAKED! This long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals. Shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal, and feature FIVE NEW shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. We've also included a range of textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte. The chocolaty velvet case is emblazoned with the word "NAKED" in gold foil lettering. The mirrored case also includes a professional quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush, AND a travel-size Eye Shadow Primer Potion in original formula. Experiment with office-appropriate neutrals, summertime bronzy looks, or sultry smokiness. With such a diversity of neutral shades at your fingertips, there's more to neutral than meets the eye.

I think the product is exceedingly good value for money as i looked into it before i bought it. Each eye shadow is 1.3g when a single eye Shadow from Urban Decay is 1.5g and is priced around £13. So in this palette you get 12x 1.3g worth of eye Shadow which is exceptionally good. They are very pigmented and last hours on the lid especially when used with the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, you get a travel size sample of this in the kit which is a nice little bonus. Some people may see this as a downside that Urban Decay have only put three matte shades in this but personally i don’t! This palette also contains the ‘professional quality, cruelty-free good karma eye shadow brush.

So do any of you own this palette? If so what do you think about it? Thanks for reading! xxx

Youthful Radiance!

For a while i have been ‘eyeing’ up- my mums Garnier Caffeine Anti-Dark Circles 2-in-1 Tinted Eye Roll-On (what a mouthful!) and the other day i decided to try it and i honestly can’t believe i haven’t had my hands on this before! This product is amazzzing! This product comes in 4 different shades; Very fair, fair, medium and dark so I'm sure there is a shade to suit everyone's skin tone. This product sells for £10.20 at boots but is currently on offer for 2 for £12 on selected Garnier youthful radiance. Although i found this product for £7 at Asda so i suggest shopping around to find out the cheapest place to get it at!

Garnier claims the 2-in-1 formula is a moisturising eye cream & a cooling roller ball which refreshes and hydrates tired-looking eyes with mineral enriched pigments it instantly covers dark circles

Why i love it? I love this product because it makes my eyes completely flawless! After applying my foundation i apply the product and then blend it in with my fingers . I don’t have bad dark circles but i like how it gives the eyes a tidy look and completely blends in with my foundation. Its a complete must have Product. I really do recommend this product even after one use.

So today i went on a hunt to buy one and i noticed one on a market i went to for £5! Your all going to say i bet that's been used before blah but lots of stalls were selling them for £5 and i did double check the roll-on ball was concealer free, either way im happy with my bargain.


Have any of you tried my new favourite product? If so, what are your thoughts? Thanks for reading xxx

Can’t Go Shopping Without Spending Money..

Yesterday my mum decided to take me shopping as we hadn’t been for a while so whilst walking around we went to look in boots, and me being me i can never leave boots without buying something! So i went to look and the Lee Stafford range where id been looking at the ‘Sea Salt Spray’ for a while but i didn't know whether it would be worth the money as it was £7.49 for 150ml, but as i was looking i noticed a sign ‘3 for £12’ thats a bargain? 3 Lee Stafford products for £4 each is so cheap so i couldn’t resist. As well as buying the Sea Salt Spray i picked up ‘Hot Shots’ originally £7.19 and a pot of ‘Treatment For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length’ which originally £7.99 as id also been looking to buy this for a while now and as it was the last one sitting on the shelf i couldn’t leave it there! So altogether i saved over £10 which i was rather happy with!


I really hope these products live up to the expectations i have of them! I will do reviews of all of them once i have tried and tested them, but if you’ve tried them let me know what you thought of them!
I also went into Outfit and picked up this super cute Freedom swallow necklace that i loved, loved it more when i saw it was £2.50 in the sale but when i paid for it it was £1.50! I can’t stop finding these bargains! Need-to-stop-spending!!!!

Today i have a little review for you of The Body Shops Baked To Last Blush. I love this blush, it sells for a resonable price of just £12 which i think is a very good price for the body shop. Baked products have seemed to be more popular over the last year and The Body Shop have introduced three products in there Baked-To-Last range. They include blush, bronzer and eye colour.

On to the blush and what The Body Shop say about it. ‘A blusher and a highlighter in a duo palette. Handmade and slow-baked on a terracotta disc, it gives up to eight hours of colour’

And what i think about it? I love this product! I love the fact its a 2-in-one product for the price of £12 i think that's just amazing from the body shop. Its a lovely colour, lasts a long time on the cheeks. The highlighter is brilliant for just under the brow aswell as mixed in with the blusher for the apples of my cheeks. This product does live up to standards and lasts longer than eight hours on my skin. I got this in shade 01 Petal which i think is just lovely, just enough pink to give my face a glow.


Have you tried any products from the Baked-To-Last range? If so let me know what you think! Thanks for reading xxx

Leopard Print Nails!

So today i thought i would take my mind off all the riots and share with you all what i have on my nails at the moment. I adore this look as i love leopard print, i actually can’t believe i haven’t had my nails like this before!
So first i started off with a base coat, which i then left to dry. I then applied two coats of No7 ‘35 Iced Mocha’ and again i thoroughly let them dry. I then got out my Konad Stamping kit and used the plate ‘m57’ with my MUA nail polish in shade ‘2’. I finished this with a quick drying top coat :) do you all like it as much as i do?

The nail varnish here looks like it has dents in as i had to do some jobs for my mother bear right after i did these :(

Hair Masks!

Evening dolls, today i went into town to go to Superdrug to pick up a couple of hair masks. I had already looked up on the internet to find out where they were cheaper at i it was Superdrug. I went in aiming to get 2 Dove masks but as my local store is on the small side they only had one type in stock, so i picked that up for a bargain £1.59 i now wish i had picked another up it was originally priced at £3.29 so i got it better than hair price! The one i got was an damage therapy intensive repair express treatment conditioner, which can be used daily which is great! It contains ‘ treatment with fibre actives which penetrate deep inside to rebind damaged proteins and reconstruct internally without weighting hair down.’ It also contains ‘conditioner with micro moisture serum which intensely nourishes and seals lifted cuticles to protect against future damage.’ I hope it lives up to my expectations!

As i saw they didn’t have the other mask i wanted i looked round and saw they had lots of offers on on hair care so i then picked up a Herbal Essence mask which is called ‘ignite my colour’ for coloured and highlighted hair and it contains acid berry and silk extracts which makes the product smell gorgeous. I was so glad when i saw this product on offer as i had recently looked at buying this in Sainsbury's but was way over £4 so i picked this one up for £1.98!


If these products are amazing expect a review! And i suggest you all head down to Superdrug or check the website out as they currently have free standard delivery to stock up on haircare products! Also what do you all think about the new layout? Good, Bad? Please tell me what you think! Thanks for reading xxx

Primark and Boots haul!

Evening girls on this rather hot evening! Hope your all enjoying this lush weather and are having a good summer! Today i have a small boots and Primark haul for you all just to show you my recent buys.
So first i picked up a makeup bag as i fancied a change from my pervious one. I think is one is really cute and i won me over and i bought it for £2.50! Its super cure and is made out of a chiffon fabric which i think gives it an unusual effect.

Next i picked up a pink scarf. Primark always have some nice light weight scarfs and this one stood out to me. I wanted one for college for the autumn and this one will go nicely with my chocolate brown college uniform! (the college uniform is horrible so id buy anything to make it look nicer!) The design of it is really unusual but it looks really nice on. I love it! And for £3.00 no complaints from me!
I then picked up this gorgeous coral belt that i like fell in love with haha! They had lots of bright colours but this one really caught my eye. It has a nice chain detail on it and it will go with lots of outfits i have, and i just couldn’t resist at £2.00.
That was all i picked up from primarmi. I then went to boots to get a bottle of coke and i was actually shocked at how much 1 bottle had risen in price, for one it was now £1.25!!!! Outrageous, so i was not paying that much for one bottle (tight or not tight!) So i went over to Barry M where i got 2 lip products for £7 as they were on offer. I got a lipgloss in the shade 12, and a nude lipstick iin the shade 101.
Thaaaaaaanks for reading! xx
