Last month saw the arrival of the first ever Cohorted Beauty Box, and boy did it impress.  If you’re unfamiliar, Cohorted is a beauty site where you can find great deals on high end beauty products, so considering the site is all about beauty, it was only a matter of time before they launched their […]

Every so often I’m invited down to Ojon HQ to find out what’s new with the brand and have a blow dry, which is an experience I always really look forward to as Ojon products are such a pleasure to use.  I’m a massive fan of the Colour Sustain Pro shampoo and conditioner – a […]

Mask Monday: Guinot Masque Essentiel Nutrition Confort

Mask Monday: Guinot Masque Essentiel Nutrition Confort

30 March 2015

Last week I had pretty nasty man-flu (bad cold and a slight temperature) which has taken it’s toll on my skin, which, by the end of the week, was dry, dull and a little broken out.  I’ve never used Guinot products before but I have heard of them and they’ve got such a great name, […]

Quick Intro to Neve Cosmetics

Quick Intro to Neve Cosmetics

27 March 2015

I’ve been sent some products from Neve Cosmetics to try out so I’ll be reviewing those soon, but I wanted to write a quick intro post to this adorable cosmetic brand since it’s absolutely massive and not particularly well known here in the UK (it’s Italian) so I thought you might like to know more.

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Blonde & Bright Duo

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Blonde & Bright Duo

27 March 2015

I really rate Schwarzkopf products as some of the very best, budget-friendly hair care you can find; they’re easily accessibly, sensibly marketed and you very rarely need to spend more than a fiver to get a decent product.  The Essence Ultime range is especially handy for finding some extremely affordable shampoo and conditioner duos for […]

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

25 March 2015

I really wasn’t particularly excited about the new bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream as it sounded like the sort of thing I wouldn’t get much use out of – basically a skincare-infused tinted moisturiser/BB Cream that’ll provide moisture alongside minimal cover.  I always seek out high coverage in products as my skin is […]

Current Skincare Routine: March 2015

Current Skincare Routine: March 2015

24 March 2015

It’s been absolutely ages since I shared my current skincare routine, and the reason for that is because I’ve spent months fine-tuning it to try and get it to the point where I’m pretty much happy with it.  Whenever I’ve considered writing up my routine in the past few months, there’s always been something I […]

Boots No7 Core Collection Brush Set

23 March 2015

At the start of the year I posted about the fact that Boots No7 were phasing out their old brush line and replacing it with a new range, which you can read about here.  The old range is now nothing but a distant memory, and in its place we have a relatively comprehensive line of […]

NOTD: Morgan Taylor Ella of a Girl

20 March 2015

I don’t often do NOTD posts anymore, even though I aim to get my nails done weekly (as a little pampering treat for myself where I get to take an hour out of the day to just sit still and inhale the polish remover fumes…bliss!) because I tend to put all my nail pictures on […]

Nails Inc Flash Sale

20 March 2015

  I am craving Spring nails at the moment, so it was with trepidation that I opened up the e-mail notification from Nails Inc regarding their flash sale, since the last thing I need is more blimin’ nail polishes.  That’s right, isn’t it? I don’t need any more, do I?  I need to think about […]
