Fragrance Friday: Lancome Idole

Disclaimer: PR Sample  - I have not been paid for this feature.  I have spent the last 24 hours obsessing over the new fragrance, Lancome Idole, because it is just one of those perfumes that I know I'm going to use right up until the very last drop! I used to post about fragrances regularly as part of my Fragrance Friday series, but other than a quick intro to a new collection, I haven't included any new fragrances on the blog this year because I[...]

Sanctuary Spa Cleansers

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  Sanctuary Spa are one of those brands that I don't think gets nearly enough credit for their skincare range; in their fairly budget-friendly collection you'll find some impressive innovations alongside everyday essentials - I always remember how excited I was when they launched their Facial in a Box, although I can't seem to find them anywhere so maybe they've discon[...]

Avon Mark Epic Lip Powders

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  More often than not, I reach for the balmiest of lip products, especially in the warmer weather when I hate the feeling of anything heavy on my face, so it's all light and creamy textures that involve very little effort.  Matte lips are a really tricky product to get right, which is why I mostly avoid them as I find matte lipstick hard to wear - I'm someone who[...]

Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home Mascara

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I do love a good mascara, but I also find that I don't really get on with the ones that everyone raves about, so I always tread carefully when subscribing to hype, although not so carefully that I don't end up buying tons of mascaras that I don't need. The Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home Mascara is a recent launch that I was excited to try as it has a lot of good going f[...]

Elemis QVC UK TSV: 6-Piece Pro-Collagen 24/7 Face and Body Collection

One of the many great things about a QVC UK TSV, other than the fantastic bargain on offer, is the fact that they often give us a sneaky look at a new launch.  The Elemis 6-Piece Pro-Collagen 24/7 Face and Body Collection is pre-launching in a few days and will give us a look at a very exciting new product that'll form part of yet another fantastic collection of goodies. The 6-Piece Pro-Collagen 24/7 Face and Body Collection QVC UK TSV fea[...]

June Favourites 2019

If you've been with me a while, you'll remember I used to do a favourites list each month that would focus on the five products I favoured most of all, but I recently decided to lift that limit so I could include more of the things I love.  Today, I regret that, as my June 2019 Favourites list is huge! There have been so many great products making their way into my regular routine, so I had to share them all.  Get comfy, this is a long one...[...]

OPI Neon Collection 2019

Is there anything better than a bright nail in the summer sun? I've realised recently just how much I love colour and how happy the right, bright shades can make me, so I'm happily embracing all things neon, starting with the gorgeous OPI Neon Collection for Summer 2019. The collection contains six fantastically bright shades, with a good mix and a finish that I want to call semi-matte - I can't seem to find any confirmation either way online, but[...]

Beauty Pie Sunshiney Day Palette

My obsession with Beauty Pie continues - honestly, it's become a bit of a daily thing for me to check the site and see what's coming, and there are some are very exciting skincare launches on the horizon, so I'm hitting the daily refresh button like a crazy person.  I had my eye on the Beauty Pie Sunshiney Day Palette as soon as it appeared on the Beauty Pie site, because I'm definitely feeling the love for warmer tones on the eyes, but I'm also[...]

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – Balancing Rose & Lychee

QVC UK are brilliant at doing beauty deals, as we know, and they often put out a deal that consists of a giant bottle of an iconic product that's available for a special price for a limited time.  I've been fortunate enough to receive a few of these over the years, but by the time I've gone to feature them they're either completely sold out, or the deal has ended, so when the beautiful new Balancing Rose & Lychee fragrance of the cult Philip[...]

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Facial Mists

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I absolutely had to start both the week and the month with a post on these gorgeous new skincare launches from It's Skin, as they are so bright, beautiful, fun and full of joy! The It's Skin Power 10 Formula Facial Mists consists of four mists, two of which are water based and the other two are milky.  The only one I don't have here is the Vb Sebum Mist, which provi[...]

A Big Post About Cleansers

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  The majority of my skincare routine at the moment is pretty regimented and doesn't allow much room for change, but the one thing I can definitely mix up is my cleansing routine, so with that in mind, a lot of my skincare requests recently have focused on cleansers and masks.  I have quite a few new cleansers on the go, and I thought it would be a little more interes[...]
